Connaught Street

by wollow

Hello, I'm renting an apartment in London for the summer.
The owners mentioned the location is Connaught St. Can you
tell me about this location and nearby attractions.

many thanks
Willow

RE: Connaught Street

That is a great location in W2 (west central London). It is an exclusive street full or restaurants and art galleries. I should imagine that apartment would be expensive. You will be close to all of the main attractions of central London.

You will be just north of Hyde Park and Speaker's Corner. You will be just off Edgeware Road, near Marble Arch and Marble Arch underground station. The apartments in that area are often let out to wealthy Arabs, so at the lower end of Edgeware Road especially there are a lot of restaurants selling Middle Eastern style food, especially Lebanese. In Connaught Road itself there are some top class Italain and Indian restaurants.

Just a walk across Hyde Park will take you to the Albert Hall, where you will be able to watch the Proms throughout the summer.

Connaught street is in W2 area of London. It is actually behind where my family have a flat. It is walking distance to Oxford Street, Marble Arch (about 10 minutes), as well as Marylebone High street (one of my favourite streets in London). There is a tube stop at Marble Arch, so you can easily get around. Connaught street is 2 minutes walk away from Hyde Park, and if you walk across the park it takes 15 minutes to get to Knightsbridge and Harvey Nicks!

In my opinion, it is perfect location. There is a great little Italian restaurant very close to the Albion Street end of Connaught, which is really good. Baswater road is 2 minutes away too and if you walk down Albion Street on to bayswater road, there is a Bus stop right there. I love the location and think you are very lucky to find a flat to rent there!

Has anyone eaten at the Connaught?

by holesinyourshoes

Hi has anyone eaten at the Connaught or can someone recommend a really good fine dining restaurant in London?

Hello
For grand old interiors you could try: The Criterion, Picadilly Circus. Restored marble and gold, good service, food is ok.
The Ritz is really grand whilst not being too big. Service is very good.
And for really fine dining check out the British Pullman. Details are on the Orient Express site.

You could try the Conran Restaurants at Butlers Wharf in the shadow of Tower Bridge.

Best deal at any one of the big 7 luxury hotels

by jerrysfriend

In my opinion, the very best traditional London hotels are the Dorchester, Ritz, Claridges, Hyde Park, Connaught, Berkeley and the newly reopened Savoy. The problem is that they are all about $700/night up. Anyone know of any way to find a better rate at any of them?

Davebane, the poster's question was about London hotels - not those in other destinations.

Re: Best deal at any one of the big 7 luxury hotels

by leics

Hotels such as these do not need to do many 'deals'. Their clientele can afford to pay the going rate....and keeping that rate high ensures that the right type of clientele is attracted.

You might find a better rate for some using the very reliable booking.com site:

http://www.booking.com/hotel/gb/the-berkeley.en.html

http://www.booking.com/hotel/gb/the-connaught-mayfair.en.html

http://www.booking.com/hotel/gb/claridge-s.en.html

http://www.booking.com/hotel/gb/the-dorchester.en.html

http://www.booking.com/hotel/gb/hilton-london-hyde-park.en.html

I found the Savoy listed here;

http://www.london-hotels.co.uk/bookings-savoy-hotel-london.html

but know nothing of the site.

You could also try www.lastminute.co.uk but I am not sure if these hotels feel the need to advertise themselves on that site.

It seems from a quick google that the Ritz does not need to promote itself on any other hotel websites. :-)

Absolutely, standards must be maintained.

May I suggest my favorite hotel in London, the Royal Horse Guards. I do not want to take up too much space on this thread but you may read my review if you wish. It is considered 5 star and is the finest location in London. http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/10a359/4b7ec/3/

You will find the price is about half as the others without sacrificing the luxury.

Cheers!

Just want to echo PubCrawler's advise regarding the Royal Horseguards Hotel. It's location cannot be beat, and for the price it is truly a "hidden" gem in the heart of London. I highly recommend it for anyone used to the hotels that you mentioned.

It is also a member of Preferred Hotels and Resorts
