Good value small and cosy hotel moments from the British Museum and Oxford Street
Centrally located, the Cheshire Hotel London combines easy access with a simplistic but stylish approach to accommodation. Its rooms are decorated with stone and large wooden furnishing making it somewhat unique in appearance as well as sophisticated in feel.
In terms of amenities visitors can expect satellite television, DVD channels, tea and coffee making facilities, mini bar, and wireless internet. An extra bed or roll-away can be requested from the front desk. The 3-star hotel also offers discounted car parking, laundry services, wake up calls, and a cooked breakfast. Lunchtime and dinner menus are to be served in the near future.
Those staying at the Cheshire Hotel London will benefit from its city centre location and its close proximity to Londons finest attractions and sites. The historical British Museum is found on the same street, just a few doors down. Here you can admire artefacts from the world over, including items originally found in Egypt, China, South America, Rome, and Greece, to name but a few.
Whist Great Russell Street is a hive of activity during the daytime, the street quietens at night time after the closure of the museum, which makes for a peaceful sleep.
Only a few yards further still youll find yourself at the Dominion Theatre, current home to We Will Rock You, a highly praised musical based on the rock group Queen. The Dominion marks the start of Oxford Street, Londons premiere shopping region. Expect to see a mixture of monstrous flagship department stores and smaller independent shops, many selling souvenirs. Also be prepared for hordes of distracted shoppers.
If you take a short stroll down Charing Cross Road youll find yourself in Theatreland, home to the citys countless plays, musicals, and shows. Alongside New York Citys Broadway, Londons West End is considered to be the heart of worldwide theatre, which means youre bound to find something to tickle your fancy.
Whilst currently being renovated, Leicester Square ordinarily offers you a scenic stopping point. Never fear, you can still enjoy a number of different restaurants, cafes and bars, not to mention the cinema (the square is home to Londons most famous cinemas and the site of most film premiers), just be prepared for a lot of noise, and not very much space. When works are completed the square will again prove inspiring.
Covent Garden, with its markets, multitude of ethnic eateries, and unique bars, and Trafalgar Square, home to Nelsons Column, galleries, and fine architecture are nearby. Both of these offer visitors plenty of entertainment, and could easily take up your whole day.
Londons underground train services means that the Cheshire Hotel London is only a few minutes journey from most of Londons other top attractions. With the aid of the distinctively designed Tube map you can find yourself in any one of Londons many districts, each one different to the last one.
Travel connections also prove straightforward, with the hotel closely situated to both Kings Cross and St. Pancras train stations. This allows for easy travel to much of the UK, as well as continental Europe. The Piccadilly Line will take you directly to London Heathrow airport, whilst Gatwich, Stanstead, and Luton are all short mainland rail journeys.
