Thoughts on these London accommodations?

Jump to last reply

My daughter and I are going to England this fall for a series of uni visits. This is not our first trip to Europe, tourism is not a primary focus, and we'll be on a snug budget. Because she's under 18, many of the hostels are off limits (London law?). Several other hostels are booked (Holland Park, for example) or private rooms would be far beyond our budget. We are going during the school year, so we can't stay at any of the unis.

Thought I'd get that info out of the way right off the bat. :-)

So our key factors are inexpensive accommodations (~ $150/night or less), close to public transit, breakfast included, and in areas where two single females would be comfortable out after dark. We also need to be reasonably close to King's Cross and Heathrow.

With all those limitations -- and I know it's a lot! -- what are your thoughts on these places?
