London is a very important financial capital and it is also a historic site, since the early settlement of London was originally established by the invading Romans. Since the ancient times, it has witnessed numerous major changes. Travellers would consider London as a well developed and sprawling city. In fact, it is quite amazing to compare the sprawling modern city with the old Tower of London, that’s essentially unchanged since the medieval ages. There are many points of attractions, but visiting them won’t be complete without knowing where we should stay during the duration of our stay.
There are hundreds of good hotels in London, many of them with expensive, plush and posh styles. There are fabulous conference facilities that allow people to host conferences with ease and alacrity. Some hotels in London were established centuries ago and we could experience the old times when we stay in them. The Ritz is known for its rich history, with decor that’s reminiscent of the Victorian era. Claridge’s is one of the finest hotels in London where people regularly host glamorous and prestigious events.
Other luxury hotels in London include InterContinental London, Grosvenor House, Sofitel London, Langham London, Stafford Hotel, The Dorchester, Radisson Edwardian Pastoria and May Fair Hotel. Most hotels in London provide complimentary breakfast outside the room charges. It should be noted that London is known for its high costs of living and this is reflected by the overall charges. In this case, we can’t expect to get hearty breakfast without staying in hotel that charges us excessively. However, other hotels may have different policy and they may consider than providing simple breakfast in the room is better than nothing at all.
Plain breakfast in London is typically consisted of croissants, toasts, marmalade, jam, butter, cornflakes, milk, coffee, tea and fruit juice. They are filling, but may not be something we would expect from a luxury hotel. In this case, we should know what to expect and the quality of the breakfast could also indicate the overall service of the hotel.
Good hotels should offer us smoked sausages, grilled bacon, salami, ham, French fries, cheeses, grilled tomatoes, jacket potatoes, yogurt, tart and strawberry cakes. In general, hotels that offer sumptuous breakfast tend to work harder to please their guests. Apart from breakfasts, we should be aware that other charges can be a bane to guests. Many hotels in London offer impressive communication facilities, including wireless Internet connection, fax, telephone and others. However, we may consider using our own laptops or tablets to communicate using the local mobile network services.
Charges could be ridiculously high in hotel, even if we want to make simple local calls. In any case, we should be ready to spend a significant amount of money, regardless of whether or not we are feeling particularly generous. As an example, if we don’t want to ask porter to carry our luggage, we should carry them on our own to or out of our room.
