    Nightmare on Elmwood?

    Sadly, the Elmwood Hotel offered as little as expected for a medium cost hotel near King's Cross Station.
    The first room we were shown was incredibly crammed with nearly no floor space beyond the confines of the double bed.
    The second was much better, in fact unnecessarily large, offering three beds and a slightly strange, and awkward, double entry door system. Both rooms were however clean.
    Breakfast was moderate, but included in the price which is a bonus.

    I stayed at the Elmwood Hotel for 6 nights and it was a great hotel. The staff was very wonderful and helped me with all my needs. I had a visitor and they accommodated me and made everything enjoyable.

    As you can see from the exterior, every room has big windows which provide a great view of the surrounding area. Look, I can see Big Ben from the huge floor to ceiling windows in my room:

    I had no idea my room would be so great! The interior of the hotel is impressive and modern in style. As ...

    ... in one day and I am still having heart palpitations from running around so much. I finished off my evening by getting myself a pint of hand-pressed cider and sitting on the London Eye Pier to watch the sun set over Westminster. Aside from still feeling awful, it was perfect and I could not have asked for a better day. Next stop, Beeeeeerlin. I cannot make that "farewell London" post now...not ...

    Following the introduction was the viewing of the crown jewels (no photography allowed). I could not believe the 530-carat diamond on the Queen’s Scepter; the world’s largest cut diamond. Then I saw the 106-carat diamond on the front of Queen Elizabeth’s mom’s crown. Some of the exhibits had moving walkways so ...
