Where to Stay in London

I'm so glad I finally made it to London this summer. It was long overdue since the last time I've been was 5 years ago to see the Damien Hirst retrospective at Tate Modern. Turns out Tate Modern has a whole new building now... with a stunning view! Well, more on that topic in one of my next posts. However, you get the idea. I really made myself a promise to go more often so I don't miss out on so much. It's hard to believe I used to live in London and know it so well when everything looks different now. 
Where to stay in London? At the Citizen M hotel at Tower of London. Why? Because the location is simply perfect, you are not in the middle of the hardcore crowds yet you are in the center of it all. I found it very useful to be right by the river since I love a morning run along the Thames. I also found it very useful to be in the walking distance of Tate Modern (well, I'm a New Yorker so what's a 30min walk, hm?). The tube is right in front of the hotel but I mostly Ubered around and it was always easy to get a car right away. 
Oh and please use the right shower gel for your AM/PM shower because I thought this little detail was phenomenal. Seriously can all hotels offer different scents for shower gels from now on? You do wanna feel fresh in the morning and calmed down at night (unless you are interested in the nightlife and in that case I suggest you start your night with a cocktail at the nearby Sky Garden). 
The Area
Jsem opravdu rada, ze se mi letos v lete konecne podarilo se opet podivat do Londyna. Bylo to odkladano uz proklate dlouho, vzhledem k tomu, ze jsem tam naposledy byla pred 5-ti lety na vystave Damiana Hirsta v Tate Modern. Dokonce ma ted Tate Modern uplne novou budovu... s neskutecnym vyhledem! No ale o tom az v jednom z mych pristich prispevku. Kazdopadne, asi chapete, co se snazim rict. Slibila jsem si, ze budu Londyn navstevovat casteji, abych neprisla o tolik. Je tezke uverit, ze jsem tam zila a vsechna mista znala, kdyz ted vypada vsechno jinak.
Kde se v Londyne ubytovat? V hotelu Citizen M u Tower of London. Proc? Potoze ta lokace je proste dokonala, jste dostatecne daleko od hardcore davu, ale zaroven jste v centru deni. Bdlet primo u reky je pro me velka vyhoda, protoze miluju ranni beh podel Temze. Taky mi prislo prijemne, ze je hotel v dochazkove vzdalenosti od Tate Modern (ok, jsem New Yorcanka, takze co je pro me 30-ti minutova prochazka, ze?). Metro najdete hned pred hotelem, ikdyz ja tedy vetsinu vyletu Uberovala a vzdy mi bylo auto pristaveno hned. 
Abych nezapomnela, urcite vyuzijte jejich dvojich sprchovych gelu na rano a vecer, me tenhle maly detail primo nadchl. Ale vazne nemuzu si prat ve vsech hotelech sprchove gely s ruznymi vunemi? Kazdy se chce prece rano citit "fresh" a vecer se uklidnit pred spanim (pokud tedy neplanujete vyzkouset tamni nocni zivot, v tom pripade vam doporucuji zacit koktejlem v nedaleke Sky Garden).
