Daughter and husband headed to London in October. Can't swing hotel prices. Don't want a hostel. Can anyone recommend a B and B - or general area around London - with less than expensive prices? Thanks!
Ricks guide book has many suggestions like Cherry Court hotel nr Victoria station.Thay have B&B type prices.
Julie, you didn't mention what "cheap" is for your family. Here is a room in Beckenham, Bromley, Kent, for about $90 for a twin.
but they would have to train from there to London (nearest station Beckenham Junction - Zone 4 I think) so there will be an added expense to getting into the city. As you travel out the price does go down some, but we've never found "cheap" in all of UK. Good Luck.
The Arran House Hotel in Bloomsbury is a B&B that has dorm-type rooms at hostel-like prices as well as standard rooms. Everyone gets the full breakfast. See www.arranhotel-london.com.
We have a Family Room for 65# reserved.
which was all that was available at the location we wanted.
But they have Super Saver Rooms if you are lucky enough to find the date & place you want.
Looks nice on-line (we haven't been there yet), from what I read, some locations are nicer than others. Read the Reviews.
Travelodge has some super saver rooms for #15 /night
here's a link, but not every place, every night.
I found the B&B charge per person and include breakfast. We are also staying 3 in a room, so the B&B prices are on the high side.
Julie, Linda is right. I have used smoothhound many times. But in London we always stay at a Premier Travel Inn. www.travelinn.co.uk. They are all over London and you pay for the room, not per person. The downside is the price does not enclude breakfast. B&B's are more fun, but my husband prefers things a little more impersonal.
You can try easyhotel.com a try. Its clean, cheap and private... close to Central London.
Or go to hotwire.com and choose a hotel. I selected a 3 star hotel for $110 a night, and scored the Hilton Wardorf, located right in the heart of Theatre District... steps from the Producers
