Historically interesting hotel located seconds away from Marble Arch and Hyde Park
Named for the famous artist who once resided within the property, the Edward Lear Hotel London seeps with history, but its its location that really draws guests through its doors.
Found just two streets away from the famous Marble Arch and its underground station, this 3-star establishment is within walking distance of the likes of Oxford Street, Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Mayfair, and Paddington railway station. It truly is at the heart of the city.
The hotel is made up of 40 guestrooms, all of which are equipped with en-suite bathroom facilities. Showers are included in all of these. The bedrooms come complete with colour television with addition channels, direct dial telephone, and tea and coffee making facilities. The hotel has a low and high season pricing policy as well as offering discounts for those who visit for longer periods. As such, it proves suitable for business people temporarily relocating to London.
Whilst it doesnt offer a wide range of amenities, the property is ideal for those looking for a cheaper option or those wanting to make the most of the citys wide variety of restaurants, bars, and fast-food joints.
The Edward Lear Hotel London is just two streets away from the bustling shopping district of Oxford Street. Its therefore perfectly placed for those visitors wanting to make a dent on Londons retail superstores. Those a little less interested in walking busy streets laden with carrier bags should head to Hyde Park for a relaxing stroll or picnic.
History buffs will delight in the close proximity at which they will find many of the notable landmark buildings and museums that are famous throughout the world. The likes of St. Pauls Cathedral, the Tower of London, and Westminster Abbey can all be reached by foot, for those keen on walking, or via short tube journeys. Similarly, the likes of the British Museum, the Natural history Museum, and the Science Museum are all within a reasonable distance. All are free to enter also which is a plus, although donations are greatly appreciated.
Londons many entertainment venues are also accessible. From the gargantuan O2 Arena to the historic theatres of the West End, tourists and city folk alike scrimmage to these locations to enjoy plays, musicals, concerts, and just about every other form of entertainment.
Sports fans can visit a number of footballing venues including the world famous Wembley Stadium. The city hosts many teams at varying levels of success. Chelsea and Arsenal football clubs are perhaps the most famous, but smaller clubs like Fulham, Crystal Palace, and QPR are easier to get tickets to see. Those interested in tennis should visit during the Wimbledon championships, whilst rugby fans can make the short railway journey to Twickenham, home of the England national team.
In the summer of 2012 London will host the Summer Olympics. As visitors travel across the world to be a part of these events, the hotel provides an excellent location just outside of the main thoroughfares of sporting fanatics.
Finally, the Edward Lear Hotel London provides visitors with convenient links to all of the citys major airports as well as domestic and international railway travel.
