We forgot to tell you about the hotel where we stayed during our last London getaway! London is always tricky when it comes to accommodation. The hotel offer is overwhelming but it’s diffcult to find something nice, with a good price and a convenient location. Sometimes I feel I have to chose between seedy B&Bs or super expensive (but fabulous, let’s face it) hotels. Well, last time we got lucky and found The Grosvenor hotel.
The Grosvernor is placed just next to Victoria station. At first I thought that it would be crowded, noisy and confusing with all that people in and out the station, but the truth is that you don’t hear a thing! The hotel is quiet and the atmosphere is magnificent. The location is pretty good. Direct transport to all London airports and lots of tube lines to go everywhere you want. So you will save some pounds in transport that you can easily spend shopping :-)
The lobby is gorgeous an the staff will wellcome you warmly. The concierge will take your luggage politely and you will be guided to your room. The hotel is huge so pay attention. I got lost twice on my way to the breakfast lounge!
The rooms are modern classics: a bit masculine, comfortable, with some details that will make your stay more pleasant. A nice little umbrella, Ipod dock station, lovely white satin hangers and a nice reading corner.
The Grosvenor offers a wonderful English breakfast, a very nice British touch, isn’t it? I have to admit that I’m not very fond of the English breatfast itself, I’m more a croissant and capuccino person, but hey, when in Rome, do as the the Romans do. Exquisite lemon jam, by the way. And speaking about food… The room service is excelent!
The Grosvenor hotel is a great option for tourists and travellers. Although the hotel is really modern and pretty fancy it still has a decadent vibe of the old days with its long corridors and memories of sophisticated train travellers.
