A Certain Hotel Near High Street Kensington

Why is it so popular with wgs?

I personally hate the area because the circle/district line is almost always closed for one reason or another (most likely signal failure) and on the weekends it's just closed entirely.

Because it's relatively cheap?

Understand where you are coming from, I don't drive so have to take the tube and it is hit and miss as to the tube service on Circle and District, I am in N London and take the Piccadilly line then the Circle or District line which is only a couple of stops usually unnafected by the delays or no service.

Any reason why this hotel cannot be named?

Not that I can see, unless that would increase the trade there.

Not an irish cream liqueur is it??

This reminds me of a very bad joke, but as I was knocked yesterday for recalling another bad joke on the Olympics thread I will keep said joke to me self!

Could it, just perhaps, be that the management and staff of this particular hotel have never yet made "difficulties" for a working girl, whether she had booked a room, or visited a guest?

No - that one's at Gloucester Rd :)

I don't think it's a good idea to name any hotel on here.

The ones we use must be fully aware of what's going on, but as long as we and our clients are discreet I don't imagine there'll be any problems. Naming them on a busy public forum that's read by all sorts of people really doesn't seem to be a very clever idea.

Anyway, I don't need to use hotels in London any more, thank God. I used to stay at the one referred to in the op (and the one next door to it) for the simple reason that it ticks all the boxes.

1. Close to a tube station

2. Close to shops so you can easily pop out for food and supplies

3. a spy hole in the door and a safe in the room

4. a busy lobby and a good mixture of guests (tourists and business people) so that clients don't stand out

5. no keycards for the lifts

6. less than £200 a night

7. a cancellation policy which means you can cancel close to the check in date if you have to cancel the tour for some reason.

8. not too many doormen/ concierges/ security watching what's going on

9. Air conditioning or windows that open

10. rooms bigger than a tiny box

Am sure there are other things that I've forgotten, but those are the must haves for me. Really not easy to find in London.

I saw one lady there and she said that the agency told her which hotel to use for that week and she then has to book it herself. So it would seem that it is less that it is popular with wgs than with their agents. I did check its prices once and it didn't seem especially cheap. I suppose it does offer the right balance of value, decent sized rooms, accessability, and is big enough to be anonymous.

Cryptic clue to the hotel for those who don't know it:

A policeman's prick at the seat of the Irish king.

It's equally popular with those of us who don't have agents. I don't particularly like it and I don't know anyone who does, but like the other popular ones at Euston it does a job.

Very good advice Sarita. I withdraw my earlier suggestion. Even if the management are aware of what goes on there's no point in rubbing their noses in it, or making too many outsiders aware. P C Plod could make life difficult, as could the tabloid press if they wanted to.

Criteria as listed by Sarita, with the addittion of

- smoking allowed

- kitchenette

- 24/7 conershop nearby for supplies.

PM me to keep it discreet. thx.

You won't find a serviced apartment that allows smoking these days.

hm...almost true.

I have to be very careful with the few remaining ones I know of then.

None of them in London area, indeed.

Refrase my request: one that tolerates some smoke (and has windows that can be sabotaged...),

and has sabotageable smoke-detectors (yes - lol, that was us...)

I remember a well known escort (on here) who carries a toolset for that reason: sabotage the "safe" hotelwindows to allow ventilation of room after pack of ciggies. Resulting large-window-openings can be positively dangerous after Alcohol consumption. But this Lady is not afraid to go out on high-rise ledges...
