NEW YEARS EVE IN LONDON
Posted Jan 16, 2017
I booked this hotel around 8 months in advance as my husband and I wanted to be in London for the new years eve fireworks and I knew hotels would fill up fast.
I found this hotel on Expedia and the balcony room with a view of the London eye jumped out at me.
After booking i contacted the hotel to ensure we reserved a room with a good view of the fireworks. A man called Jesus was extremely helpful, he even took pictures of a few of the different rooms so i could choose the best one for me.
When we arrived at the hotel it was fantastic, in a great location, walking distance to trafalgar square, big ben etc.
The hotel was really stunning inside and out. The staff were fantastic and the room was the best one I have ever stayed in. We had a big luxury room, king bed, big tub, mini bar, even sky TV. Then we had the balcony overlooking London.
If you want to see the New years eve fireworks without standing out in the freezing cold then this hotel is perfect, at midnight everyone came out onto there balconies to watch the fireworks. We could hear big ben and the distant music. The only thing i would say is that after around 10mins the smoke from the fireworks clouded the sky and we couldn't see much after that (obviously not the hotel fault) so we didnt get the full experience. Never the less, 6 hours of queuing in the freezing cold, with big crowds or a night in with room service and champagne doesn't really compare to me.
