London for Spring Break 2012 - Where to stay

Jump to last reply

I (40yrs.) am trying to plan a trip with my daughter (12 yrs.) and possibly my b/f (47 yrs.) over spring break in April. I have two issues:

1) if my b/f comes, I need a large hotel room with a king bed (preferably as he can be picky, lol) and at least a pull out sofa (preferable w/ divider but unlikely). Many of the hotel sites don't really give the square footage or layout of the rooms and with 3 of us, I want everyone to be comfortable.

2)The hotel rates seem outrageous! Like most people I'm sure, I'd like to stay in a central location - safe to travel / walk at night.... After reading some of the forums threads, sounds like Bloomsbury (Russell Square) is a popular location, I just can't seem to find anything that will meet our needs and is reasonable. I guess I just need to figure out where to compromise....

I'd like to stay around 200 pounds/night but not sure I can find anything good for this. I checked some year round rates at a few hotels and they don't get much cheaper if I went in Oct let's say. I'd prefer not to take my daughter out of school and her break this year starts April 5th.

Anyway, I haven't been to London since I lived there in 1984-1985 and I'm really excited to take my family for a tour!!!! I'm sure much has changed. :)

Thanks for your help.
