The Victoria and Albert Museum …
... into London Euston at 9am... not bright eyed or bushy tailed! We fill the morning with a visit to the nearby British Library. It's Treasures Room houses many er, treasures, the piece to resistance being the Magna Carta. It was being 'rested'... Other pieces included ancient Shakespeare, musical and religious manuscripts through to some of the Beatles original scrawlings of lyrics. The ...
... day at Covent Garden and wandered their cool stalls and amazing food market. delicious food, great atmosphere and heaps of fun. Loved it. From there we spent a lovely afternoon in Hyde Park, where we hired a row boat on Serpentine Lake, rode bikes through Hyde and Kensington Parks and fed nuts to the very friendly squirrels. So relaxng and fun.
To finish the day we spend a couple of hours in Harrods, and we had tea there.... delicious roast chicken and veg. ...
... and then got a taxi to our 'hotel ramblas'. It is in a great location right in the centre but we discovered that while the room is comfortable enough there is no air on only fans!!! Also we found that there was no lift and we needed to climb102 stairs to get here. Mary says it reminds her of the Marigold Hotel story Spanish style (she watch the Marigold hotel again on Air India a couple of days ago - freaky. ) Anyway we will survive - the bed ...
... Big Ben is actually not the name of the clock tower but actually the bell inside that chimes ever hour on the hour. Once we got to the hotel Brian and I decided we needed to see as much as we could in one day. So we signed up for one of the World Famous Double Decker bus tours of the city. It is incredible here. There is so much history in this place that our heads were spinning by the end of our 3 hour tour. We did make it over to the tower bridge ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Enterprise Hotel London
We will go there, no more!
Again, the room given must be of an 'Internet Room'!! Why? Because on the first occassion, they gave us a room which is in the middle of two floors..and the door hits the bedside as soon as you open it! Not enough floor space to put our only two luggages! and the room smells!
Upon talking to a nice cleaner lady, she said there are other much better rooms! So, talked to the reception, and then found us another room which is a bit bigger..but it must be on the top-top floor where the windows is only the size of 3 square feets!! A small little fan is given though... Anyway, after some extensive walking tour in london, we just doze off w/o problem... We will never go back there again evenif there is a great bargain deal!! A plus point is that it is very close to the earl's court subway station, just 5 mins walk..great! Internet usage is chargeable..Advisable to use other internet cafe if indeed needed at all.
Pretty Darned Bad
If you enjoy bad odors and unfriendly staff, the Enterprise is for you!
The morning wake-up call is a bit unusual...the sound of someone clanking on the pipes next door. Rooms are small and I wouldn't recommend walking around barefoot on the carpeting. We had a great view of the dirty disgusting alley and the screen on the window appeared as though hadn't been cleaned since King George IV. The staff threatened to charge us for an extra person when we came home one night at 4 a.m.
and had a friend with us. One good thing was the water pressure in the shower was nice and temperature stayed hot. But, when you did shower the whole bathroom got wet.
Definitely NOT a 3 star hotel
I am not sure how this hotel ever got a 3 star rating. The hotel is not air conditioned but each room is given their own personal fan which on the 4th floor doesn't do a bit of good. You also could not leave the fan on during the days in hopes that it might cool the room down because there was a defeat switch for the electricity. When you handed over your key, you turned off the electricity in the room. The hotel is not well maintained - the elevator would not come down to the ground floor, you had to walk up one flight of stairs to get on it (the signs announcing this problem seem to have been there for awhile so I don't think there was any rush to fix it), the carpet on the steps has been there since the hotel opened, the doors are paper thin (while waiting for the elevator I could hear someone snoring!) and to top it all off, there was a foul smell in the bathroom. The only way I would give this hotel anything but a terrible rating is if they sent me all my money back. Pick another hotel!
