More about Abbey Court Hotel London

Abbey Court Hotel - London

by Malina822 about Abbey Court Hotel Hyde Park

Our hotel is located in a perfect spot - close to everything: post office, restaurants, stores, internet cafe, St. Mary's hospital, and Paddington Station.

Our room is a family room and large enough for a family of 4. We had one double bed and 2 twin beds.

Bathroom is quite small, especially the shower stall, but very clean. Room service came daily to tidy up our room and provide clean towels.

You cannot make long distance phone calls to the U.S. at this hotel. We made calls to the U.S. at the nearby internet cafe. Warm hotel rooms, especially for those guests who come from warm climates.

Continental breakfast provided - good breakfast and just right to start the day.

Hotels & Harry Potter Tours

by Marey

My family and I will be visiting London in November. We have searched online for various nice, yet inexpensive hotels throughout London. We've narrowed our search to a few hotels. Can anyone tell me about the Abbey Court Hotel near Paddington Station.

Also, any suggestions on which tour company would be good to go with on a Harry Potter tour? My kids are big HP fans.

Thanks!

London Accomodation

by Karensa

Hello all,
My husband, myself & two children (Univ. students) will be in London for 3 nights in July. We would like to stay somewhere central. Any hotel suggestions would be appreciated... preferably clean, 2 * hotels. Does anyone know of any hotels that would have rooms big enough for 4 adults? Will be need to book 2 rooms?
Thanks in advance,
K

Re: London Accomodation

LOL. I don't mean to laugh too hard but 99% of London 4* hotel rooms are too small for 4 people.
You may be best off with a hostel that has a room for 4.

Re: Re: London Accomodation

by leffe3

My reaction too - most London hotel rooms are too small for 2 people never mind 4....:) And 2*? Ouch - broom cupboard with no en-suite.

I know of a great hotel in Bayswater's Leinster Square (near Kensington and close to two very central underground stations - Bayswater and Queensway). Its called the Wedgewood Hotel - quite basic but comfortable and big rooms available - also VERY VERY good value. Lovely breakfast and staff are perfect. The website address is http://www.wedgewoodhotel.co.uk

Enjoy!

We stayed at the Abbey Court Hotel near Paddington Station.

www.smoothhound.co.uk/hotels/abbeycourt1.html

We stayed in December time. We are a family of 4, although I have a 10 and 7 year old, and our accommodations were just right. Ask for a family suite. We had 2 double beds and 1 twin in our room. It is a 3* hotel with free continental breakfast. It's centrally located and very close to Paddington Station and all the familiar fast food places. Paddington Station had a mini-Sainbury and Marks & Spencer. It's a nice quaint hotel.

Enjoy London!

Forgot one more detail on the hotel . . .

Only bad thing about the Abbey Court Hotel is the small bathrooms. The shower stalls are not as big. BUT the hotel is very clean and provided ample supply of towels.

Re: London Accomodation

One more detail about the Abbey Court Hotel I forgot to mention:

They have very small bathrooms. The shower stalls are smaller than usual. BUT the hotel is very clean. Our room and bathroom were always made up and cleaned when we returned from siteseeing. Plus, they provided ample supply of towels.

Re: Re: London Accomodation

Thank you all for your help. We ended up booking 2 rooms at the Westpoint Hotel (recommended by a Canadian friend) which is right next to Abbey Court. Both hotels (plus 2 others) are on website for Hyde Park Hotels. TripAdvisor comments are favorable for both & price isn't bad. 68 BP per night per room. On-line reservation system very efficient.
Thanks again,
K

Travel Tips for London

The 4th plinth...

by BluBluBlu

In Trafalgar Square there are four plinths...three have statues of military or naval hero's...but the 4th was vacant. Recently they introduced a yearly program of 'guest' statues. This years is of a disabled artist...I really like it...but its pure white marble is already attracting the bloody pigeons!

Plague! Plague! Fire! Fire!

by rickyvilla81

The Monument to the Great Fire of London, 1666, is to be found next to - wait for it - Monument Station, and was built in the 1670s by the great London architect Sir Christopher Wren. He was charged with building over 50 new churches, and several other civic buildings, which had been totally destroyed in the Great Fire. In a way, had the Fire itself not happened, Wren may never have got his lucky break.
Now the story goes like this.
In 1665, London was visited by the most terrible outbreak of bubonic plague since the Black Death, borne by fleas that lived on the backs of Black Rats. Alas, when the first illnesses occurred, Londoners didn't realise it was a rat problem, and blamed the countless cats and dogs that were kept in the city. So they killed every single one - poor Fido. This of course meant that the rats were allowed to flourish unchecked - and the plague spread like news of Bill and Monica. A third of Londoners died.
And then in early September 1666, the baker Thomas Faryner, whose bakery was in Pudding Lane, left his oven on one night, and it started a fire. Not a big one, not one to cause any disturbance. In fact, the Mayor of London at the time refused to even get out of bed for the news, claiming that "a woman could pisss it out"!
Wise as ever. The Fire did spread, to the warehouses on the banks of the Thames, which were filled with brandy, pitch and other highly inflammable substances. Up went the flames, engulfing the densely built wooden houses, and within four days, the medieval city of London was gone forever.
Miraculously only nine people were killed! It finished off the rats, though, and the plague, and Wren got to rebuild London on a grander scale. The Monument is a testament to the Fire, and is crowned with a golden ball of flames. There are 311 steps to the top, and if the column (which is the largest 17th century column on Earth) were to fall, the tip of it would reach Pudding Lane, where the Fire began.

we will never forget...

a very sacred place to australians, and a recent addition to london. the australian monument is dedicated to all the soldiers of australia who have fought in the world wars under the flag of the commonwealth. i came here on a gloomy dark day, and it was so quiet and peaceful here, even though it's located on hyde park corner with cars buzzing around everywhere! it was a nice time to reflect, and to remember the brave people who fought hard not only for australia, but for britain and the commonwealth as well. for many aussies living in london, this is a MUST see spot, to sit, reflect and remember.

located on hyde park corner, close to wellington arch.

Packing...

by CandS

We had our backpacks from our mainland part of the trip but since we got a hire car in the UK we ended up buying an extra bag to put our extra clothes in (we got too cold in the UK so we needed warmer clothes). Take warm clothes, especially if you're going in the cooler months. :) A rain jacket and umbrella are also very useful... And good walking shoes are a must too!!! Take a lot of film or memory cards for the many photos you will take...everything seems expensive in the UK compared to Australia...
