We stayed here for 6 nights on forward & return jouney,we hired a Motorhome for 3 mths,frm
London. '06. We were lucky to obtain the Family room even though only 2 of us. Spacious, but u see some of the Plumbing when u look out the window,not a pretty sight. Breakfast consists
of poached egg,baked beans,hash browns for mains,cereal,toast & jam,juice,tea or coffee,
EVERY morning,that was the only downfall. We were there late Mar,then late June to early July
and paid 70pnd Sterl both times for the room ,that was actually price for ordinary rooms,we were lucky,he must have liked us.,lol

Bayswater Rd around corner 100yds,Main Rd nearly all the way to Oxford St. Parks right opposite.
I was wondering if anyone knew where NOT to stay in London. Well, I should say what area should we stay away from? There are so many choices and I'm afraid that I'm going to pick a "bad" area. If anyone could suggest and area or even a hotel, I'd greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in Advance!!!!
I've just returned from London, and had an enjoyable stay in a hotel there.
Close to the tube and in a fine neighborhood, it cost 40 pounds, including breakfast. I booked through LastMinute.com upon arrival, and the hotel was their suggestion.
It's called the Park Lodge Hotel. You may have to book online through LastMinute to get that rate.
Don't stay anywhere round Kings Cross.
Also, if you have limited time, don't stay anywhere further out than zone 2 on the London underground tube map as you'll spend hours each day travelling.
The YHA hostel across from Kings Cross/St Pancras is superb. We always book a private en-suite double room with a TV for £63 per night including full breakfast. When I tell people I'm staying in the area they get a funny look on their face, but it's across from the British Library, next to University College London and is about a 15 minute walk to the British Museum. But maybe the hotels in the area aren't so nice?
I really don't think there is such a thing as a good hotel in London at a price affordable for most people.
And I really don't think there's a no-go area in central London for tourists either. Read the reviews here or on tripadvisor.com to get a handle on what to expect and where.
Kings Cross is pretty dire, it still has a community of drug dealers and prostitutes that come out at night. Its also very congested with traffic. Euston is also not very nice. But then just south of Euston is Bloomsbury where a lot of the tourist hotels are located, they are all quite close to each other. North of Euston is Camden and the streetlife there can also be rough. Central London has a certain amount of low life, a few hundred addicts who make a nuisance of themselves by begging and stealing. They congregate in various areas at certain times of day and are best avoided. But generally it is pretty safe.
There are areas of London that are unsafe, but these are not really in the central tourist areas where the hotels are located.
