EUROPE 2014 - Part 2 (London)

Day 6
Departed KEF 0830hrs onboard FI540 and landed at LHR 1130hrs. Bought Oyster Card for use in London. Proceeded to Marble Arch by London Underground.

Marble Arch Underground Station, Oxford Street

Checked-in at the Rose Court Hotel (GBP114/night with breakfast) which is very near to Marble Arch Underground and the famous Oxford Street and Hyde Park. It's a 3-star hotel and the interior is quite dated but the location is very near to Oxford Street and Marble Arch Underground. Had stayed at the Quebec Court Apartments and Cumberland Hotel during my previous visits which are nearby the Rose Court.

Had my lunch and dinner at Halal Restaurant, Edgware Road. No problem regarding halal restaurant because there are many especially along Edgware Road.
