If the kids are under 16, then you might look at the Premier Inn chain. They offer family rooms.
hi, you can use "booking.com" and filter your choices using your price limit. good luck and happy trails.
Sherry, I'll second the recommendations for Premier Inns and booking.com. Premier Inns is a discount (by UK standards) no-frills corporate hotel chain. The properties I've stayed at have been along the lines of a Comfort Inn property in the U.S., except that they usually have an actual restaurant. You can find independent hotels/B&B's in London at comparable rates. But, unless I had a recent recommendation from a trusted source, I might be inclined to go with the corporate franchise that is Premier. You won't get anything fancy or cozy, but you, very likely, will get something that works. Renting a flat (apartment)is also a good idea for a family. Be aware that there are scam artists at work on the web, though. I've booked a number of times through booking.com with no problems. The rates are good and the descriptions are fair.
no kids 18 and 10 and premier inn has nothing
I'm traveling to London this May and am staying at the Crowne Plaza St. James...found some good prices on www.londontown.com
Sherry, I don't know if you would call it a family hotel, but we enjoyed the London Vicarage Hotel in Kensington. They're currently charging £200 for a quad room with private bath, around maybe $325 or less right now. Good full breakfast and not too far from the Kensington High Street tube station.
I've stayed at the London Vicarage in Kensington and enjoyed my stay. However, be sure that you love stairs. There are a lot of them and no lift.
Sherry - Falcon Hotel has quads for 149 gbp per night. The Falcon is located very close to Paddington Rail station.
We found our hotel on booking.com - I really like how you can filter from their site. We are traveling with 5 people, so we have the same problem with finding rooms. We ending up at a bare-bones hotel, but it's in a safe neighborhood, near all the sites we want to see and close to the tube. We are going to be out and about all day, so really it's just a place to lay our heads.
Sherry, We booked The Falcon, as Joel recommended, and whereas they didn't have a family room left, we booked two adjoining rooms for $184 GBP per night for the four of us, and this included breakfast. The rooms look small, but the proprietor seemed really nice, and the place has gotten good reviews.
