Well London is very very expensive that goes for the accomodation as well. Your best bet is to stay just outside the city in a bed and breakfast or motel if you havent got the dollars.
The E7 Forest Gate area ( the East End of London)has a string of cheap motels and hotels. Not far from the city of London. about 30 minutes by train. A new hotel has been built in E15 Stratford, Ibis hotel which is about £50 a night. If you want a more comfortable place to stay but don't want to pay 0v3r hundred pounds.
The Kenilworth Hotel ( near the British Museum ).
US $150 ( plus breakfast ).
Classic English service, traditionally-furnished.
The breakfast is superb ( not surprising at 23 pound ).
due to the poor state of the aussie dollar i stayed in b and b's .for the most part i stayed in a place in thorton heath not a great area but cheap for around ten pounds a night with huge breaky.found most motels around central london to be over priced
the thing to me is if its clean i dont worry about much else so i found if you drop your standards alittle the bed and breakfast can be really good and also most host can give good info on the local area
It is best to get a centrally located hotel that is accessible to main transportation routes and priced reasonably. Mount Royal Hotel near Marble Arch proved convenient for us and gave us time to take breaks in between hectic sightseeing.
When I decided to do this journey I'd like to stay in a hostels, like everytime I leave for somewhere, but when I saw the price I change my mind, because this fares are very close to an hotel fare.
The hotel I used is in Earl's Court zone very next to the tube-station. It's no very big, but I like it, it's clean and the breakfast was a buffet, so you can eat as you want. The receptionist are pretty kindly.
How I just write I payed for a triple for one night about 60.00 £ (97.00 €) so I payed 20.00 £ per persons.
For me the unique qualities of this hotel are two: they were very kindly with us and the price that I payed: about 60.00 £ per night per a triple room. Yes it was a super fare, that I find thanks to my girl-friend, because she works in a travel agency.
£65 for a room, which caters for 4-5 people staying
There is a fantastic Chinese Restaurant underneath the hotel.
You can eat as much as you like for breakfast
It's near to the Millenium Dome & tube stations & there are lots of regular buses that can pick you up from Hotel
It's very clean, wonderful helpful & polite staff. The room is en-suite, very spacious & clean.
This isn't a good hotel in London. It's somewhere in the near of Heathrow and very hidden. I stayed in this hotel at the new year 1998/99 and I thought it was horrible. It was too far to the city of London. You have to pay alot for a ticket for the tube and the taxidriver didn't know where this hotel is located. That's why I want to tell everyone not to stay in this hotel.
We stayed at the Quality Kensington. It was fine but the room was VERY small. We got used to that rather quickly. We had a 'standard' room. Those that were a bit more expensive looked larger.
Our view was nothing to speak of (a mews with stairs right outside our window!)...but again, we didn't care because we saw so much OUTSIDE the hotel. :-)
We had a continental breakfast included. It was an 'all you can eat' buffet so we didn't walk away hungry. For an extra payment, you could get hot foods such as eggs, bacon, etc. We didn't bother since the breads, fruit, cheese, and cereals were plenty for us.
The location was a big plus for this place. It is a short walk from the Gloucester Road tube station which is a terrific station. It covers 3 different tube lines (District, Central, and Picadilly) so you rarely have to make changes to get where you need to go.
Also, though it is a fairly quiet area, it is not far from the busy Cromwell Road, Gloucester Road, and Earl's Court Road areas. Just walk a few minutes and you will find plenty of restaurants, pubs, and stores. Additionally, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Museum of Natural History are within walking distance. We went to the V&A, but didn't get to the Natural History museum.
We also walked back to our hotel after strolling in Kensington Gardens...and seeing the Albert Memorial and Royal Albert Hall.
Sorry, the Downingstreet 10 ist not for You ;-)
Leider, die Downingstreet 10 ist schon vergeben ;-)
