Vacation on/off/on/off--now on again! Paris and London hotel help

Jump to last reply

So, our vacation is back on. Again. However, our exact dates are uncertain. We’re looking at April and/or May.

So now my DH is now thinking: ~9-10 days in London, leaving one day, getting there the next. It’s a looooong way from California. Train to Paris for 7-8 days. Stop for just a few days in NYC (because, as he put it, “it’s on the way back and we liked it there”) and back to Fresno.

I'm begging your indulgences and assistance, since I’ve posted here before about this trip. Because this was off the calendar, I’ve wiped much of what I’ve learned from my mind, aside from my OCD notes on sightseeing and such. That stuff I have and can find out okay from the forums here and elsewhere.


I need help on budget-level hotels in London and Paris, preferably less than $200 US/night.

In London, we’re looking at places like Ibis, Premier, and the Jesmond--so you understand our budget. We don’t plan on being in the room much but for sleeping and such. We wouldn’t mind an apartment, either, since we’re there for a while, but I’m not sure if it’s in our budget for a decent place IN London.

In Paris, I really have no idea at this price range. Again, were open to an apartment, especially since we’ll be there so relatively long.

In both cities, we’d like a short walk to transit, convenient for typical tourist activity, and a safe area. We understand cities can be noisy. When we were in NYC last year, neither the construction noise at 7am nor being by Penn Station was a problem--we just don’t want a nightclub-all-night type of thing.

I’m very nervous about finding places to stay, and we are willing to be flexible with dates to get good places. I need to nail some of this down so I can book hotels/apts and flights. Help?
