A few weeks ago I took of on my first solo adventure to Paris (more on that to come this week!), I had a failry early start to catch the Eurostar so I decided it would be easier to stay in London the night before rather than rushing around and worrying about delayed trains in the morning. The hotel is located smack bang in the middle of soho (directly above Charing Cross station funnily enough – although don’t worry about train nose as I didn’t hear a thing!) and is a great central location for any London stay.
I arrived at the hotel just after 6pm and checked in – the staff were so friendly and welcoming and they whisked my bags straight off to my room whilst I had a nosy around the hotel. The lobby area was really plush with a slight quirky twist (think a telephone box filled with a giant bucket of champagne… impressive eh?!). After I had checked in I unpacked my outfit for the next morning so I was all ready to head to Kings Cross, I run a hot bubble bath and flipped open my laptop to catch up on some emails and blogging.
After blogging and reading my book in the bath (so relaxing!) I settled into the worlds comfiest bed ever and caught up on some TV before getting an early night. In the morning I headed down for breakfast, I have to admit it always feels a little strange going for breakfast on your own in a hotel but I soon got over it when I saw the amazing array of food on display. I went for granola with yoghurt, some fresh fruit and a croissant (felt almost obliged to indulge as I was off to Paris for the next few days, non?). The breakfast was delicious an soon after I checked out of my hotel and headed for the Eurostar, my night at the hotel was an amazing start to my first solo trip away!
I’ve stayed in a hotel on my own a few times and I have to admit… I love it! It’s so nice to kick back and have some ‘me’ time in peace, I’m talking face masks, hair treatments, tanning sessions, catching up on the latest glossy mags, it’s just so relaxing and I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather spend my evening than the Charing Cross Hotel – it was a truly exceptional stay at the hotel!
