Hoteles 4 estrellas Ecónomicas.

Browns hotel: Mayfair. One the classic oldie, small, cosy, English style hotels. Not for you if you are fussy!

Cavendish hotel: St. James's W1. Old style small hotel.

City Westminster hotel: Sandwiched between a busy road junction with an added walking facility to cure the problem, but still lacking atmosphere and small narrow entrance hall.

Copthorne Tara hotel: High Street Kensington, a real gem, large entrance hall, friendly staff, good restaurant and frequest entertainment for both the tuorist and the corporate clients, but location difficult for the older visitors as it is a far walk from most areas they wish to visit.

Crowne Plaza St James is a standard 4 star near Buckingham Palace.

Cumberland hotel: Very Central location facing in part Hyde Park and Park Lane. Completely refurbished in a minimalist style. Rather cold and impersonal entrance hall. Noisy rooms above delivery service areas and areas facing Oxford Street, in spite of glazed windows. Some rooms are amazing: (we advice you to check out room 1005 bathroom) reports of cold shower before being able to reach hot water tap to change the temperature!

Crown Plaza Royal Dock: Isolated and difficult to reach. Attracts both a budget client and being next to the Excell Exhibition hall, business clients. It does not appear to have as high quality standard as its sister City hotel and clients are faced with very expensive taxi fairs, as it is in the very East of London, a long distance from the West End.

Harrington Hall hotel: Kensington South. Is this the one charging clients just for touching a drink bottle?

The following hotels are similar and roughly equivalent to 3 star London hotels

Bonnington hotel, Southampton Row * Corus Hyde Park hotel * Kensington Close hotel * Strand Palace hotel * Rembrandt hotel, Kensington * Royal National hotel * Rubens Hotel, Victoria * Thistle City Barbican with swimming pool. Rating opinions welcome!

Dolphin Square Hotel: Westminster, large block comprising flats as well. Undergoing an ownership change and lots of changes and possiblt refurbishment. It used to be a superior class hotel strategically located in Pimlico, but now in sort of run down state. Situated on the North Side of the river Thames skirting the Embankment, a very busy major road.

Drury Lane hotel: Near the British Museum, the National Museum of Archealogy, it reminds as of a post war bunker.

Flemings Hotel: Mayfair, Old unfurnished look. Central location.

Harrison Hall Hotel: South Kensington SW7. Did you know that, in common with many hotels, you only have to touch a bottle inside the fridge and your bill will show a drink charge?

Hesperia hotel: Victoria SW1. Next to one of the busiest railway stations. Depressingly full of smoke and impersonal.

Hilton hotel: Olympia. good 15 minutes walk from the nearest tube stations. Favourite among groups of fast turnover. One night to three nights groups

Hilton hotel: Right on top of Paddington Station and with direct internal connection with Heathrow Express, a high tech train reaching the airport in aabout 15 minutes. Nice and newly refurbished.

Holiday Inn hotel: Heathrow (Bath Road) Hayes. 3 star?

Holiday Inn hotel: Kings Cross. In the middle of an enormous urban development. Difficult to reach on foot, but in an up and coming area. Swimming Pool.

Holiday Inn: Mayfair, Good quality location.

Holiday Inn Regents Park: Still quite central, just few minute walk above Oxford Street, below Regents Park and the London Zoo, would be considerably cheaper, probably because of the location.

Jurys Clifton Ford hotel: Marylebone W1. What? Pretty small, but perfectly formed budget 3/4 star look. Popular with Spanish speaking groups.

Jurys: Great Russell Street. One of the best London locations, but too 'cosmopolitan' surroundings for the un-initiated. Would you leave your young teenagers loose there? Maybe not.

Landmark hotel: Marylebone Road, NW1 . A long walk up towards North London. Next to a raylway station with all its inconvenience, one way system and slow moving traffic jams

London Bridge Hotel: Situated on the South Bank of the river Thames next to London Bridge Railway station, SE1. Nice modern and convenient for bankers and City workers.

Marble Arch hotel: Just about four star rating, because of the eccellent central location. Unbelievably ugly entrance, some people look mistified when they are initially faced with an escalator. Good restaurant and breakfast room. Most of the times it gives the impression of a seaport.

Mayfair hotel:Currently being refurbished and inconvenienced

Trafalgar hotel: of the Thistle group. off Trafalgar Square. Just behind the National gallery. Superb location. It has seen better times in the past. Run down.

"La mas alta cualidad Hoteles 5 estrellas:

4 Seasons hotel: Mayfair, one of the most stunning of all the top 5 star Central London hotels. You will impress your friends with this choice.

4 Seasons hotel: Canary Wharf E14. In the Port of London area. Covenient for the Excell Exhibition Hall and the Canary Wharf, but little else.

Baglioni hotel: Kensington High Street self claims 5 stars. (Many people are not comfortable with that. Hovering around the 4 star value). A period facade with contemporary interior. Too new to have received further feed back yet.

Belgravia hotel: Nice and elegant, small in appearance, but at the moment there are roadworks with all its problems all around it and the road next to the hotel has been closed for many months.

Berkerley hotel: Knightsbridge, near Hyde Park and a cold but luxury 4/5 hotel in a luxury shopping area.

Berners hotel: An old favourite Grand British Style 4 star hotel. The large entrance hall is very friendly and quite. The hotel is in a superb location. Soho, Oxford Street shopping centre, Covent Garden Opera House and theatreland of London, just to mention a few.

Britannia Hotel: Mayfair, sister of the International, The Britannia has 2 entrances: one in a Mews and the other pointing torwards Oxford Street. Situated in a lovely Victorian area surrounded by the most beautiful period houses of London. Near Bond Street, a few minutes walk from Berkerley Square and the Casinoland of London.

Browns hotel: Mayfair. Very small. 3/4 ..hesitation here!

Cadogan hotel: Knightsbridge, excellent large hotel with live music and pianist.

The Carlton Tower Hotel: A Luxury Hotel between Chelsea and Westminster borders. Surrounded by landmarks such as: Harrods and Harvey Nichols luxury department stores and near the South side of Hyde Park.

Cavendish hotel: St. James's W1. Enclosed between the private members clubs and Christies public auctions. Small entrance and narrow in its look.

Claridges hotel: a real British Jewel. In the heart of Mayfair, the hotel is within easy reach of Bond Street, Regent Street, Berkeley Square, Grosvenor Square and Hyde Park. Comprehensive restoraion of the accommodations has preserved all the period features.

Connaught hotel: Carlos Place, Mayfair. Small. Top international chefs make the hotel cuisine one of the top quality and consistency over the years. Superb service and stunning traditional style.

Crowne Plaza St James is a standard, Edwardian period style, standard 4 star hotel, five minutes walk from Buckingham Palace. It has a rather pricey good restaurant and patchy service. You leave messages to residents and they sometimes loose themselves in the wilderness.

Crown Plaza hotel::Blackfriars City, excellent large hotel popular with bankers and business people with City links.

The Dorchester: Mayfair: Luxurious, opulent, exclusive, are all words that describe this legendary hotel. Located majestically overlooking London's Hyde Park. Difficult to park your Rolls Royce here. The right place if you want to be seen by the paparazzi. Comments graciously received on the Dorchester Club.

Intercontinental hotel: Piccadilly near Hyde Park end. Are the refurbishments over?

Lanesborough hotel: Hyde Park Corner, SW1. Ex hospital. Luxury 4/5 star hotel.

Langham hotel:: Portland Place, excellent large, very centrally located, luxury hotel

Hilton Park Lane hotel: Mayfair, this is the top quality of all the London Hiltons. It is surprising how big is the difference in quality between them all.

It has its own elegant Casino and currently, one of the most frequent choices of American tourists for Traditional Afternoon High Tea.

Sanderson hotel: Fitzrovia. You don't know where that is? Your are not the only one. Trust us! Very Central London, just above Oxford Street shopping centre. Elegant, Modern, Minimalist. Favourite among "to see and be seen" 'young' Londoners of all ages. Lovely novelty.

Savoy hotel: Strand, very central location overlooking the North bank of the river Thames, staff seem to think they own the place. Very old hotel with some upgrading and refurbishments.

Sofitel hotel: Pall Mall, not too big, not too small. Opposite the Institute of Directors and the most exclusive members clubs, yet only few minutes from everywhere in Central London. St James Park, Piccadilly, Regent Street, Covent Garden, The river Thames..Fantastic location, top quality restaurant, the french chef Mr. Roux is one of the most well known geniuses of French cusine in the UK. Very pretty decor, cosy main entrance.

St. Martins hotel: Covent Garden. Very central location. The first and most successful hotel in applying the Minimalist look in a luxury hotel. Good result. The hotel is totally surrounded by many of the best national and international restaurants, it has a very hard job to retain its clients for meals.

Pubs

The Anchor, 34 Park Street, Bankside, SE1
Not far from The George Inn and situated close to the replica of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, this is a large pub with lots of history. Several bars with views of the River Thames.

Cheers, 72 Regent St, W1
Cheers was inspired by the popular US comedy series, and incorporates bar,restaurant and merchandise store. It is the perfect venue in which to host a party - Cheers offers a top-end dining experience with style and high quality. In the evenings, Cheers changes from Bar and Restaurant to a busy dance bar featuring celebrity DJs. And, it stays open till late!

The Cock Tavern, Smithfield Central Markets, EC1
A full English breakfast with a pint of ale or perhaps kippers and smoked haddock. Mix with the rumbustuous, friendly workers from London’s oldest meat market from 05.30 - 10.30.

The Counting House, 50 Cornhill, EC3
Located in the heart of the City of London, The Counting House is a former bank which retains much of the original interior. The mosaic floor displays the names and dates of former bank branches. Lots of impressive mahogany, a glass domed atrium and chandeliers too. London brewed Fullers beer, with freshly made pies.

The Crusting Pipe, 27 The Market, WC2
Strictly speaking more of a wine bar than a pub, although they do serve their own beer. Good atmosphere, wooden tables and fine wine. The food’s good, particularly the cold cuts. If you like a glass of port, then try Davy’s Vintage Character - it’s very good.

Doggett’s, Blackfriars Bridge, SE1.
There has been a pub on this South Bank site since Elizabethan times - although much changed over the centuries. After extensive refurbishment, it now features four floors of completely redesigned bars, to suit relaxing or lively lunchtimes or evenings. There is a brand new menu catering for all tastes and quite reasonably priced. Doggett’s is named after Thomas Doggett, comedian, actor, theatre manager, author and wit of the 17th century.

Flyman & Firkin, 166 Shaftesbury Avenue, WC2.
Another of the famous Firkin pubs but this one features an on site micro brewery. Look out for unusual brews; anyone for Dogbalti, curry flavoured beers or perhaps chilli beer?

Founders Arms, 52 Hopton Street, Bankside, SE1.
A modern pub located on the South Bank named after and built on the site of a former foundry. The bells for St Paul’s Cathedral were cast here and you can sip on your beer whilst watching the traffic on the River Thames.

The Gate, 18 - 20 St John Street, EC1
Stylish, relaxing and good value. Classic decor blends with contemporary style, mahogany wooden floors, wood panelling and subdued lighting enhanced by huge windows. A varied selection of beers, spirits and wines with an imaginative food menu. Dishes include feta salad with roasted peppers, salmon fish cakes and French fries, and much more.

The Globe, 8 Bedale Street, SE1
If you are in need of a drink in the early hours try this pub, frequented by market traders from nearby Borough Market. Open between 06.30 - 09.30 Tuesday to Saturday.

The Good Mixer, 30 Inverness St, off Camden High Street, NW1
Don’t be surprised if you spot a mid level Britpop celebrity or two in here, hanging out after a recording session at a nearby studio. There is a pool table and lots of smoke - very popular with Brits and tourists alike.

Goose & Firkin, 47 Borough Road, SE1
Part of a chain of Firkin pubs, but don’t be put off, the formula’s good and so is the beer. Wooden floors with sawdust, traditional cockney sing songs around a piano, you even get song sheets so that you can join in. Respectably raucous and great fun.

The Grenadier, 18 Wilton Row, SW1
Once the officers’ mess for the Duke of Wellington’s regiment this is a cosy pub set in a private mews running parallel to Knightsbridge. Wooden floors, real English ale and a small traditional English restaurant. The Beef Wellington is highly recommended.

The House They Left Behind, 27 Ropemaker’s Fields, E14
A pub with plenty of history in the heart of the East End. Once teeming with workers from the docks and residents of the local area, this pub sits alone as all the old tenements and houses have been demolished - definitely worth a visit. A wide variety of beers available.

Lamb & Flag, 33 Rose Street, WC2
18th century pub around the corner from Covent Garden. Boasts two busy bars, popular with London office workers during the lunch hour. Located in a pedestrianised alley off Garrick Street. Courage beer and a good selection of cheese platters.

Marquis Of Anglesey, 39 Bow Street, WC2.
Recent winner of the Association of London Brewers award for best pub food in London. Youngs beer, a la carte and set menu.

Medicine Bar, 181 Upper Street, N1
Expect bohemian decor and a trendy local crowd, loud music and a good choice of beers. Arrive early at weekends if you want to get in. On Friday and Saturday nights it’s popular that it’s members only - but you can get enrolled free of charge if you visit during the week.

The Moon Under The Water,
28 Leicester Square, WC2
Part of the growing and popular Wetherspoons group of pubs. Wetherspoons have developed a winning formula; light, airy, traditionally styled pubs and probably the cheapest beer in London. With lots of brews to choose from and reasonably priced food.

Museum Tavern,
49 Great Russell Street, WC1
Before or after a trip to the British Museum, why not pop across the street to this big, ornate Victorian pub, stuffed to the gills with etched mirrors and gilded carvings. It opens for breakfast at 09.30, but alcohol is only served during regular licensing hours.

Nags Head, 53 Kinnerton Street, SW1
A very popular pub with a friendly atmosphere and locals, which is just as well because of its size (small). Of course the famous London brewed Youngs beer is served here.

The Old Bank Of England,
194 Fleet Street, EC4
Fine Fullers beers and pies in the former law court branch of the Bank of England. No shortage of space, impressive architecture and you should have no problems being served; the Old Bank boasts 31 hand pumps.

Orange Brewery, Pimlico Road, SW1
This independent pub brews its own beer and, unusually, during the summer, its own lager. Two bars, frequented by Pimlico’s smart set.

The Pembroke, Primrose Hill, NW1
The Pembroke has an open layout and is decorated using smoky blue hues, barley yellow walls and rich wood trimmings. The design is enhanced with large mirrors and coloured stained glass. The open log fire is a welcome retreat on cold days. A cosy pub, fashionable bar and continental café with a menu that ranges from lemon chicken and noodles to beef bourguignon.

Rivers, 35 Albert Embankment SE1
Located between Lambeth and Vauxhall Bridges, with views from the upstairs restaurant of the Tate Gallery. Good food with an a la carte menu.

Sports Cafe,
80 Haymarket, SW1, Tel: 020 7839 8300
The Sports Cafe is an excellent bar and restaurant with three bars, a dance floor, 120 TVs and 4 Super Screens showing live international sport. It has a fantastic atmosphere and it stays open until 02.00 every day in the week, 03.00 at weekends. And, the food is great too!

The Swagman’s Rest,
596 Holloway Road, N1.
Refurbished and newly opened last year, this pub is a must for the long haul traveller. Aimed at the back pack crowd, it offers a homely atmosphere combined with all the comforts of home, in the shape of nine large television screens, showing Sky sports from around the world. You can even email home for free, Sunday to Thursday from the surf centre and on the weekends there’s lots of live music.

Via Fossa,
Canary Wharf
Opened recently in a former 19th century docks building, this new bar overlooks the dock basin, with a walkway to the Canary Wharf complex. If you have problems finding Canary Wharf look to the east, the Tower is the tallest building in London! Via Fossa is set on two levels with a distinctive and rather attractive gothic theme.

Westminster Arms,
9 Storey’s Gate, SW1
Outside of the House of Commons Bar which is closed to the public, this is the most popular pub for the UK’s MP’s If you happen to visit when voting is taking place in the nearby Houses of Parliament they even have a bell to call them back to vote!

Wilton Arms, 71 Kinnerton Street, SW1
Edwardian decor with intimate nooks and crannies, with lots of knick-knacks and brass artefacts. When you have finished here walk a few steps to the Nags Head.

Good reasonably priced beer with lots of atmosphere. With lots of bars to choose from this 17th century pub has oak tables and wooden floors covered in free sawdust.
