Westbridge Hotel in London

Has anyone stayed at this hotel or know anything about it? Apparently it is fairly new.

A.W. - Have you check out the reviews on Trip Advisor? Looks like it's out in Zone 3 near the Stratford Underground Station. From there looks like about 25 minute ride on the Jubliee Line to Westminster Station(I selected Westminster Underground station for no particular reason). Check out www.tfl.gov.uk to plan your tube travel.

Definitely check out reviews on TripAdvisor as previously noted. Not truly convenient for daily travel into London proper. Personally I'd try to find an accommodation closer to the city center. Have you looked on the airbnb.com website? It is advisable to stay within in transport zones 1 & 2. http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tickets/14416.aspx Saves travel time and transport costs.
BTW, you can also use Priceline for London. I did so and secured a lovely double room at the Regents Park Marriot for $95/night which, for London, is a steal. Not in the city center but an easy tube or bus ride. Enjoy your trip.

Thanks for all the comments. I decided I needed to move closer, given what everyone said. I've found a place in South Kennsington/Chelsea that has great reviews from TripAdvisor.

New Hotels are wonderful but if they are way out of town you will be using your Oyster card to the max so not saving a penny. We like the Lime Tree Hotel close to Victoria Station....so if you are coming into Heathrow...get your Oyster Card and get in to the heart of the city!! Ask anybody about oyster cards. They are great. Rick also likes the Lime Tree Hotel....good hearty breakfast included in the room price. Another place we like very much is right in the center of London at Trafalgar Square. It is Northumberland House...part of the London School of Economics. Modest, Clean and comfortable. Kitchens on each floor...just down the hall if you want to pick up deli food at a nearby Tesco deli...do a little cooking and perhaps meet others doing the same thing (we always do). Good luck Mollie B

The Lime Tree is greatly over rated. While the area is charming, the hotel is not. The S. Kensington/Chelsea area is fabulous! Great pubs, great vibe and great transportation links! Great choice!
