I need some help from anyone knowledgable with London. I'm looking around at hotels and have found several lovely ones. Does anyone know anything about Cafe Royal Hotel on Regent Street? It's just gone through a remodel. Looks nice... modern rooms in a nice old building... best of both worlds.
Any info on the surrounding area as well would be greatly appreciated. From what I've read, it's close to a lot of things...
the Millennium Hotel
Claridges is ok if you don't mind roughing it a bit
Depends what you're looking to do i guess.
But it would be a bit like staying in Time Square
where the fuck is flashbender? that fucking cunt.
So, it's a very busy area? What's there that draws so many people?
My wife and I are into three things. We love trying out really good, cool restaurants. We like shopping but more into boutique shops. Love walking streets full of small shops. And, obviously we love to hit landmarks... look at the awesome architecture. We *may* hit some museums but not as interested.
- it's the centre of town. lots of tourists, office workers and youth drinking and making noise. and buses and taxis and traffic in general.hans_glib
- if you want to be in that part of town try Brown's in Albemarle Street. Much quieter, close to Ritz, Dover St market a stone's throw for your boutiquenesshans_glib
- throw for your boutiqueness, Bond Street another stone's throw for your blingnesshans_glib
I'm there in March for the Roy Lichtenstein exhibition at the Tate Modern....can't wait.
TTT... I'm stuck. I keep going back and forth on hotels. Just not sure what to do. Any other suggestions on hotels? Boutique, luxury.... I'm open. Would love to be close to "stuff".
I stayed at a really nice Air Bnb place in Soho over the summer. was great. Locations and amenities... all that. Better than a hotel.
Have a look at:
Charlotte Street Hotel
Dean Street Townhouse
The Soho Hotel
All central locations and probably in the same ball park price as Cafe Royal.
Thanks all! I went ahead and booked at The Zetter.
