FAQ about London Tourism and Accommodation

Check here for the most common questions asked by our visitors about visiting London. We regularly answer clients questions as part of our service so whether its about how to travel to a particular place or simply where to stay to suit your requirements simply ask us.

The most common questions cover jacuzzis in the room and safety issues. Like most cities throughout the world there are "good" and "bad" areas.  We suggest you stick to accepted tourist areas within the city which are all of the central areas from Earls Court in the west across to the City of London in the east.  These days, there are areas south of the River Thames which are also very safe to use including the Southbank and Wandsworth / Battersea.

Questions about hotels in London that may help you determine which accommodation is best suited to your requirements.  We do answer all email questions within a few hours so do not hesitate to ask us anything about London, we are all local people.

Certainly a jacuzzi yes.  The most popular hotel with double jacuzzi in the bedroom is the Comfort Inn Vauxhall. The Executive jacuzzi bedrooms have a 2 person jacuzzi in the bathroom.

To our knowledge this is the cheapest hotel with a two person jacuzzi in the room in all central London.

Yes, the Britannia International Hotel at Canary Wharf where the Studio Premier rooms have a jacuzzi in the bathroom.

GOH is in Bloomsbury which has literally hundreds of hotels and b&b's. To be within walking distance the Mercure Bloomsbury Hotel is 2 minutes away.  Also very close is the Grange Holborn.  You can check them all out on our Hotels near Great Ormond Street Hospital page


Q: hotel near Harley Street?

This is a regular question.  Harley Street is in central London just 5 minutes walk north west  of Oxford Circus.  We do have a page detailing hotels near Harley Street but because of the nearby Bond Street and Oxford Street tube stations its also very easy to travel into the area.


Q: b & b near american embassy london uk with parking

Now thats asking something!  My recommendation would be to stay in Hampstead at the Quality Hampstead Hotel  which has a vast car park and is cheap.  Its only 4 stops on the tube from Finchley Road (300m) to Bond Street and a 5 min walk to the US Embassy.  Also staying in Hampstead you will not pay the motorists Congestion charge.


Q: BEST PLACE TO STAY AROUND LONDON?

Depends what you expect - Shoreditch and Hoxton - hip; Bloomsbury - cultural; Covent Garden - Theatre; Mayfair - old school elitism; Southbank - pioneer; Oxford Street - tourist; Soho - gay or media person; Paddington and Bayswater - budget tourist; Earls Court - Australian; Marble Arch - Arab; Kensington - the full package; City of London (business district) - mainly business stays but cheap at the weekend.


Q: London hotels overlooking the River Thames

Quite a few actually!  Perhaps the best known are the rooms at the rear of the Savoy Hotel which look across to Southbank.  If your pocket will not stretch to the Savoy then have a look at The Britannia International at Canary Wharf.  Next to Tower Bridge in the City of London, the Tower Hotel looks out to the bridge and also the Tower of London.  Closer to Westminster is the Marriott County Hall which looks across the river Thames to the Houses of Parliament


Q: Nearest Premier Inn to the US Embassy in London

The Premier Inn, Leicester Place, Leicester Square London (WC1H 7BP) is the nearest to the US Embassy and Grosvenor Square.  Situated in the heart of the West End you will also find Soho, Carnaby Street, Oxford Street, Regent Street and Piccadilly.  The US Embassy is a short 10 or 15 minute walk from this hotel.

 


Q: hotel with easy access the american consulate london

By the way its an embassy and not a consulate.  An hotel with easy access is simple.  Central London is quite small and with the tube system almost everywhere within zone 1 is no more than 30 minutes journey to the US Embassy. There are 4 tube stations within easy walk of the Embassy, Bond Street, Marble Arch, Green Park and Oxford Circus.  For a hotel within walking distance simply stay in Mayfair (expensive), Marylebone or Paddington.

Q: travel lodge hotel around university college london

The closest Travelodge to UCL is 3km away and is the Travelodge Marylebone. To be closer and get something cheap try 1 Lexham Gardens Hotel so you can walk to UCL.


Q: Visiting from the US,  where can I meet real locals?

Yes, like New York, Londoners tend to always look as if they are rushing and are therefore deemed to be unapproachable.  For a relaxed banter with people try something like the Greenwich Pub Tour where you visit 4 historical pubs and sample the ale.  These trips are daily (except Sunday) and run from 6pm until 930pm.  Meet at the Sir Walter Raleigh statue which is located just outside the northern entrance to the Greenwich Tourist Information Centre, just across from the Greenwich Pier

 

Q: How do I travel cheaply from Gatwick Airport to Aldgate

Simple.. Use National Express all the way. The cost as I write this is under £10 and you can book online.  Its the NXA3 from the airport to London Victoria and then change to the SH010 direct to Aldgate.

 

Q: Nearest Travelodge to Park Lane

Sorry but Travelodge and Park Lane do not mix together!  However, the closest is not too far away in Marylebone, the Travelodge London Marylebone. The walk to Park Lane will take about 15 minutes

 

Q: Is it worth visiting London in Winter given the bad weather?

In some respects it can be advantageous because hotel rates in January and February tend to be lower. There is plenty to do without venturing outside too much.  Have a look at these unique London events during Jan 2014 for example.

 

Q: Earls Court hotels with parking?

This is a common question as Earls Court is the first area of central London that you drive into from the M25 and M4. The best hotel for parking is the Ibis Earls Court which has a massive 114 space car park. 

 

Q: The nearest big hotel to the Natural History Museum?

There are quite a few with 100+ bedrooms but by far the largest is the Holiday Inn Kensington Forum which is around 6 or 7 mins walk away.
