Map & Directions
The hotel is around 30 minutes by taxi from Heathrow Airport. It takes twice as long by public transport -- take the Piccadilly Line on the Underground to Gloucester Road, just around the corner from the hotel. London City Airport is half an hour's drive away and 40 minutes by public transport -- take the DLR to Canning Town, the Jubilee Line to Green Park and then the Piccadilly Line to Gloucester Road. From Gatwick Airport it's about an hour to the hotel, by taxi or train (take the mainline train to Victoria and then the District Line on the Underground to Gloucester Road). There's no on-site parking, but nearby public parking is available (charges apply).
