London hotels via Priceline bidding

Jump to last reply

I’m interested in feedback from travelers who have used Priceline to secure London lodging, especially if you’re a frequent Priceline user in the city. Here are my issues:

1) For the uninitiated first time visitor, I’m curious as to which of the 14 bidding zones are the best for the general tourist, offering superior proximity for general touring and access to key sites. Are there zones that you would ignore? Of some priority is access to transit within the city, (we’re arriving in the city via train from Edinburgh) and also will depart the city from Heathrow. Also, are there select zones that might offer some price relief during the usually expensive M-TH business week period?

2) As a regular and active user of Priceline, I know the service guarantees only that the room will accommodate two people, but makes no guarantees on type or number of beds. I am traveling in London with another single person and really need two beds. I’m interested in your past experiences and general thoughts as to how accommodating London hotels might be in fulfilling a request for 2 beds with the name your own price option. Is it a lost cause, or is there hope that they can accommodate such a request? Your feedback is appreciated. Thanks.
