    "Fiddler On The Roof......( and the floors inbetween) "​

    Fiddler On The Roof is playing next door at the Savoy Theatre and that , along with 'Simpsons in the Strand' remains open whilst this Hotel undergoes its extensive refit.
    My second attempt here, and definatley thought it would be a 'recce' only....but spotted my way in around the cameras and was very happy when I topped out on the roof ..
    There are dome CCTV's , cameras and PIR's located around the periphery as well as the floors....and security is on site...I saw the security room but not the individual.
    Views from the roof are some of the best Ive seen of the 'downtown' Thames...lots of River Traffic....and on such a peaceful night I felt miles away from the hustle and bustle below...which set the tone for the explore.
    After spending 'too' much time on top....I ventured down the levels...starting with the upper most 'expensive' riverside rooms....and was quite frankly dissapointed.
    All rooms ...well all but a couple on the top floor, are in a state of being ripped apart...and to my eyes all seemed quite small and not quite as 'luxurious' as I had imagined.
    Too much time looking around these rooms and I was pretty tired and dehydrated by the time I got to the Grand Reception and Basement level Ballrooms/Bars/Function rooms ( there are LOADS of them)...so didnt make the best of it I feel...so much to see down here...not all very interesting...but was fascinating just exploring these Basement /Sub Basement levels and 'backrooms'.....far removed from the sites the guests see...theres alot more to see down there I think.
    The ballrooms and staircases do fill you with a sense of History....as do the books in the Riverside Entrance showing the year on year bookings for functions.
    Couple of places still locked up....but otherwise ...most can be seen...
    There's little furnishings left to give the place the opulant look it had when it was open..they are are sold, bubble wrapped and waiting in the lobby for collection....but still plenty to see.
    The Savoy is open again....enjoy !
