Does anyone know of a small hotel or B and B in central London that might have a triple room available? I am meeting my sisters in London in July and we are looking for a good value for the money or a hidden gem. If anyone has stayed at a good one recently, we would appreciate the tip!

Aston College on the Charlotte street...:) May 14, 2003

Not expensive, very comfortable, just vis-a-vis Channel Four...

Unfortunately I don\'t remember their e-mail, but you can easily find it on the web. Good luck!

Sorry for the previous post: it's Astor College and not Aston...:) May 14, 2003


99 Charlotte Street



and here is the info for you:

Students may reside in Astor College a modern single room dormitory or Langton Close, self-contained flats of three to six persons. Both residence facilities are in close proximity to the Faculty of Laws of University College London where classes will be conducted.

Each single room at Astor College has a refrigerator. Bathrooms and showers are located on each floor. Astor College has phones in each room to receive calls and (by purchasing calling cards at the front desk) students can make long distance calls from their room. There are also pay phones in the hallways. Astor College amenities include a library; kitchen facilities on each floor; music, television, and common rooms; recreation areas with ping pong and pool tables; garden area; lounge, bar and laundry room. Breakfast is served daily at UCL Ramsay Hall located one block from Astor College.

Students may also reside at Langton Close, self-catered hall of residence situated off Gray\'s Inn Road overlooking a quiet park with easy access to the city. Breakfast is not included. Langton Close offers self-contained flats of three to six single bedrooms. All flats have a kitchen/lounge room. All rooms are fully carpeted. Each bedroom has a wash hand basin. The flats of six rooms have two showers and toilets. All others have one shower and toilet. Each flat has a telephone located in the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted and equipment is provided for self-catering. There are two public payphones on the ground floor. Men and women students are assigned where possible to different flats. Langton Close itself has a large TV room, a small study room used during the day, vending machines and a coin-operated laundry room on site. Langton Close is within a short walking distance to the Faculty of Laws building.

Housing at both dormitories excludes the break period (i.e, July 17-27, 2003). Students remaining in London may make arrangements directly with these dormitories to reside at additional expense. When registering for the Program please indicate which dormitory you prefer.

Space, which is limited in both dormitories, will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.
