London hotels with family rooms

My husband and I are visiting London in April. We are currently searching for hotels - as our children are younger (4 and 8) the best fit for us is a room with two double beds. I'm having a hard time finding a hotel with rooms with that set up. Spending for a suite or two connected rooms seems completely unnecessary in our situation. Are there any hotels that come to mind that are a good fit for our family? Our budget is $250-$450 per night.

Check out Rydges in Kensington, Executive studio room. There’s only one at the hotel and believe it’s room 101. The studio has two rooms; one with a king bed and the other with a double sofa bed. It has a TV in each room. My wife, daughter, and I stayed there in 2015. The hotel is one block from the Gloucester tube stop. I did a quick check for2 nights in April (arrive 10th, depart 12th) for 2 adults and 2 children and the Executive studio flexible rate was £270, pre-paid £229, and bed & breakfast £290 per night.

You might want to check out some of the Aparthotels in London - Citadines and Fraser's both have properties in London that might be just what you are looking for.

Check out the Jesmond Dene Hotel - small hotel. More the style of a B&B - full English Breakfast is avail. (extra cost)
They have a quad room on the 4th floor (top floor) - I think I remember that it has 2 double beds....
The hotel is only 2 blocks from the Kings Cross Station and St. Pancras station, so you can catch public transportation to anywhere.
I walked to the British Museum from the hotel - a few blocks across Russell Square.
here is a link to the hotel: (if you pay your bill in cash - you get a discount)

We stayed here. http://arranhotel-london.com/about_us.htm. with our 2 sons almost 10 years ago and it was perfect. Nothing fancy, but they did have a good breakfast. Our room had 4 single beds and a tiny little bathroom that had been added to the room. I think it used to be listed in the RS guide book - either that or someone on the forum recommended it.

Try the Luna Simone which is in the London guidebook and gets good reviews on Trip Advisor. I believe they have rooms with two double beds. Good luck.

I often stay at this hotel: Cherry Court Hotel They have a family room, although I've never used it. It's a nice small and pleasant hotel. Family: one double and three single beds from £135

If you look on booking.com you should find quite a number of hotels and apartment hotels that meet your needs. Filters allow you to specify one room for 2A/2C, price parameters, proximity to city center, etc, etc. There is a rating system as well as reviews. I usually cross check reviews with those on TripAdvisor.

When you get here you may see why it is difficult to find a hotel room with two double or larger beds. Most London hotels have very small rooms as they were converted from multi-storey homes which when built had either zero bathrooms or one for the property or one per floor on the more recent buildings. Since everybody wants en-suite bathrooms the already small rooms had to lose more square footage to install those. There simply isn't room for more than one bed in most places.

When you get to Paris you will think that London hotels are spacious, by the way.

I'm glad that folk have good ideas for you.

If the two Staybridge hotels weren't so far out of the centre I'd suggest those....

Not sure how long you are staying but have you considered renting an apartment? WE did that with our kids ( 12 and 9 ) this past summer and it was great. Much more space to lounge in after a day os sightseeing, a fridge of snacks and drinks. We also had laundry on site and 2 bathrooms which was amazing!
