  • Londons worst hotel! filthy and unsafe!


    We booked through booking.com as the images on there were quite impressive and location was good, however when we arrived in the evening the hotel was like a tip with damp patches all over the hotel room walls with paint peeling off them, black mould in the shower, filthy carpets, lights that dont work, the noisiest radiator ever (we tried turning it off just to be able to sleep but this didnt work) tv cables hanging out bear, lipstick stains on the net curtains, a building site outside our bedroom window (the hotel is going through renovations but nowhere on the booking site does it mention this. The landing/stairway to the room is dangerous with hardly any lights, ill fitted carpets, and images of inside old shared bathrooms covered in filth as the doors where open as you walked past. We found another hotel in the morning (we arrived too late the previous day to find anywhere or we wouldnt have stayed)

    £99 per room per night

    Unique Quality: none

    Directions: craven road, its a main road with shops/pubs etc. look out for scaffolding

Budget Hotels- London

by tracys2cents

The Blakemore, The Britannia Arms, The Royal Eagle, The Mina House.........anyone with any experience at any of these? Thanks.

RE: Budget Hotels- London

by Herna

We stayed at Royal Eagle two years ago. For the price, it was ok. Rather small beds and rooms, but clean, and with rather good location. Breakfast was the most negative thing. I guess continental breakfast is never a gourmet experience, but this was very boring (and I have never tasted such overly sweet jam!). But apart from the breakfast, Royal Eagle is a good bedget alternative.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office - part 2

by alucas

The Grand Staircase

After visiting the Locarno Suite, we passed on and down the Grand Staircase before leaving. This staircase was designed George Gilbert Scott to impress foreign visitors.

My main picture is a composite of 4 that I took trying to get an overall view of the staircase - you would need a fish-eye lens to get it all in ! SO that is why the edges of the picture are jagged - I didn't want to crop anything out. But it does give a good impression of the grandeur given by the marble columns, the gilding and the rich decoration.

The dome above is decorated with female figures, which represent countries that had diplomatic relations with Great Britain in the 1860's. There are several statues of important Foreign Secretaries, including Ernest Bevin, and there are some further notes in one of pics that I took of an information board.

The Millennium Bridge

by alucas

The Millennium Bridge is the first totally new pedestrian bridge to cross the Thames in over a century, since the opening of Tower Bridge in 1894. Other bridges have been rebuilt in this time, but the Millennium Bridge is the first new one. It links the City of London, near to St Paul’s Cathedral, with Bankside in Southwark.

Construction began in 1997, and the bridge was first opened on 10th June 2000, but was closed after three days (see next tip for details). After extensive modifications the bridge was re-opened on 22nd February 2002. The bridge measures 330 metres long and 4 metres wide. The average height above the river at high tide is nearly 11 metres, allowing river traffic to pass unimpeded. The original cost was an estimated £18 million, with modifications adding nearly another £5 million to the total cost of the project. The design was a collaboration between the architect Sir Norman Foster, the sculptor Sir Anthony Caro and the world renown structural engineers Arup.

Who wants to snog a person with cracked lips?

by May_pasa

If you're planning to be mobile most of the time, travelling lite would be a wise thing to do if u're not planning to stay at da same hotel in this vast City. It's a hassle having to say sorry everytime u knock into someone with yr big bags... :P Winter : Trench coat will be good... eliminates the need of bringing additional thick sweaters.

Summer : Superb!! Since u'd be wearing as little as possible... dont sweat over the sleeves. ;) Lip balm ---> essential! Adaptor Umbrella
