Clarion Shaftesbury London Hyde Park
If you are on holiday in London, I recommend you stay at the Clarion Shaftesbury London Hyde Park. It is easy to get to by train no matter what town or city you come from. It is easy for me to get there from Ware, which is my hometown, all I need to do is takes a train to London Liverpool Street and take the London Underground to Queensway underground station or Bayswater station. The hotel is a two minutes walk from the station.
I’m afraid that if you come from abroad or from any other place in the United Kingdom, you may not be able to afford to stay in hotel unless you are fairly rich, but have no fear; there are so many other hotels in London but may not have the same rating. Just go online and search for other hotels. This hotel has a 4 star rating.
I was lucky to find that the room has access to broadband so I could still check my emails and other things on my laptop even though the hotel didn’t have Wi-Fi, but I was fortunately warned about this when I booked my reservation a few weeks before I stayed there. Luckily I didn’t need to buy a network cable because I was told that the connection point has its own cable anyway.
During the stay, I went to visit Buckingham Palace, Chinatown, London Aquarium, London Eye, London Zoo, Tate Britain, Theatreland, Westminster Abbey and Whiteley's Shopping Centre. All of them were great and will one day visit them all again. London Eye had long queues so I had to spend about an hour until I could get on it.
There is also a games arcade called Namco Station close to the aquarium and the Eye. I saw loads of children going into it and I wondered what the fuss was about. It didn’t take me long to find out why, they have a huge variety of games and also have bumper cars. [more ]
