Hi everyone,

I am wondering if someone has some suggestions of good and affordable hotels or B&B in London? If they are well-located, all the better Thanks.

Dalmacia hotel Dec 7, 2006

Hi there,

My husband stayed at the Dalmacia Hotel (Shepherd's Bush/Hammersmith area) at the weekend: http://www.infotel.co.uk/14411.htm

He had a twin ensuite room for £50 and said that it was really nice and clean, with new furniture.

arosfa hotel Dec 7, 2006

Hi everybody,
I would recommend the Arosfa Hotel, Bloomsbury district, near the British Museum. Nice rooms, all en-suite, single room £45 per night (breakfast included). The toilet is really VERY SMALL (they call it "compact toilet) but really very clean. Good direct bus service to Victoria Station.

Enjoy your trip to London!

Happy homes Dec 7, 2006

Look for "Happy Homes" through google and you will finde afffrodable B&B's. I tried that, too, it was an accommodation at a family and they were really very nice.

Columbus Hotel Dec 7, 2006

My wife and I stayed at the Columbus Hotel, near Paddington Station, earlier this year. It is fairly cheap, not luxury, but adequate, and very convenient for the station, including the Underground network.

Beware of travelodge! Dec 7, 2006

Under no circumstances book Travelodge. They tend to overbook and people end up with no place to stay the night though the room is booked long in advance.

Regards,
Dominika

Hospitality club and couchsurfing. Dec 7, 2006

Why go to hotels : Hospitalityclub.org and couchsurfing are free. Price: 0£. You can't find anything cheaper and you meet a lot of hospitable, friendly people.

Belgrave Square Dec 8, 2006

If anybody plans to turn up in London and find a cheap hotel, I would advise them to head for Belgrave Square. There are a vast number of cheap hotels in this square and the adjoining roads and there is bound to be a vacany somewhere. I can't necessarily vouch for the quality!
Belgrave Square is about a mile from Victoria railway station and is served by the frequent number 24 bus route.

Find the location first! Dec 13, 2006

London is soooo large, that you have to decide, which areas are your preferences, because transport is not cheap, and you can waste a lot of time travelling.

Costantino's and Jack's suggestions are worth looking into, and the various hotel guides or websites. The area North of Hyde Park is full of all sorts of hotels, so is Bloomsbury, near the British Museum, and these locations are central.

On the other hand,

Belgrave Square is one of the most expensive location in London, and apart from the Lanesborough Hotel around the corner (special winter rates from around £435, breakfast thrown in!) and a few similarly expensive ones scattered around, I can't recall any on the square. There are a few embassies, thought.

Tim, are you sure, you didn't mean Belgrave Road? Your description would fit better to that location, South West of Victoria station.
