Regarding London

14 posts in this topic

Hello Gentleman, I was wondering, as i will be touring London at some point in future, is it best to go for city centre hotels or ones on motorways because of the traffic as looking on the internet...it does look quite :wacko: at best of times, with one-way systems etc lol.

many thanks x

Best to get advice from other wg on here . I think they tend to stay close to main line train stations which have a lot of punters passing . eg Kings Cross , Euston

I would strongly recommend central London, near stations as suggested, or tried and tested areas such as Earls Court, Kensington or Bayswater, but absolutely do not take your own car to get there!

If you do have to take your own car, you'd be far better with the Heathrow area.

I saw someone in February at the IBIS hotel right next to Euston station. The hotel was well positioned for rail and tube and hotel reception was busy and very easy to negotiate. The lady in question said the rates were very reasonable.

You're best concentrating on Hotels without keycards, as there is nothing worse than a young lady having to come down to reception and let you in :( Spoils the occasion somewhat! Anyway, non-keycard Hotels tend to be Novotel, IBIS and Marriot. Tara Copthorne Hotel in High Street Kensington is a popular escort hotel.

Feel free to PM me Victoria if you need any further guidance.

I would fully endorse this...do not like Travelodge (too low end and keycards). I think that www.saafe.info has a section on touring with other tips. Laterooms.co.uk often offers good deals.

Hope this helps.

City centre, as most people will be using public transport to access you. :)

Apparently the Copthorne Tara now has staff on the lift so girls are preferring the Kensington Close, which is next door and, in my opinion, slightly nicer.

"Think Apartments" in Earls Court are quite good too if you want to be a bit further out. Or best western Shaftesbury, also in Earls Court, is quite popular. For something really central, and very nice, you could try The Cumberland in marble arch. Maybe a bit more expensive.

My advice would be to try to get not more than 5 - 8 mins walk from a tube station.

Hi Lady Victoria,

Most defitnately you need to be within a 2 to 3 minute walk from a station, central line or circle would be best

After that a hotel or services apartment where a visitor can come and go and blend into the background

Have a great tour
