First of all, thanks to those of you who gave me great advices to my previous questions.
Does anyone know if the Burberry shop in Hackney is open on Sundays? I tried calling, but my line keep getting disconnected from the other end. And no - I'm not Japanese (But then I understand it's hard to tell the difference between a Chinese & Japanese, heh) ~ I read on the forum that local Londoners think that Burberry is a fashion faux-pas and that only Americans and Japanese buy them ... but I simply cannot resist ~ :)
After some extensive research, I've narrowed down to 3 hotels where I'll be staying, appricate any comments :)
1) The Kensigton Court Hotel (Baywater)
2) The Palace Hotel (Marble Arch)
3) Lord Kensigton Hotel (Trebovir Rd) - I'm leaning towards this one.
4) Hotel Royal Eagle (Craven Rd)
5) Barston Gardens (Barston Gardens) - this is my second choice, but I'm afraid that it will be to far from Convent Garden /Camden Mrke, Oxford St. area where I planned to go on my last 2 days in London.
Burberry is considered a fashio faux pas only by those who live in the UK. Italians and French like this brand as much as the Americans and the Japanese do.
Sorry, but I cannot help you with your other questions.
if you are wearing burberry in the UK or Italy it is a major fashion Faux-pas! dont do it! people will look at you and shake their head in dispare , spare your self the shame and head to Gucci!!!!!!
Burberry = chavtastic = chavs have wrecked the Burberry image in the UK. www.chavscum.co.uk to see what chavs look like.
Chavs are everywhere around London so avoid them if you don't want trouble!
Just stay somewhere near Central or near a tube station, its quick by tube down to the West End. Make sure the hotels are located on or near major roads for your safety. www.streetmap.co.uk
Nothing is too far in London when you have the underground! I went to both Camden Town and Covent Garden for shopping while I was in London (just got back Friday). Both are great places for shopping. The northern line (black line on the map) takes you right to Camden Town and the markets are just a short walk to the right of exiting the tube station. Covent Garden is on the Piccadilly (blue) line and lets you off right at the shops. Navigating the underground is very easy, and you see all sorts of people on there who have done shopping and have bags with them. So no matter where you stay I think you can get anywhere in central London very easily.
