Would appreciate experienced Heathrow travelers opinions here. Seeking advice on options for transportation to hotel in London. I have read and understand Black Taxi fares (including L2.80 required fare from airport taxi stand and the L 60 to L87 fares to destinations within 20 miles from Heathrow). Mapquest shows 17 miles.
The Heathrow express to Paddington seems expensive to me, and then I would have to stop and purchase additional train tickets and tube tickets to get to my final destination of Euston station which is closest to my hotel AND THEN taxi anyway.
Traveling with one other family member, so the cost factor would double if I opt for train/tube.
