Lodging preference when traveling alone?

Jump to last reply

I'm tentatively planning a trip to London this summer. I'll be with a group for a week elsewhere in the UK, but once they leave, I'm planning on sticking around on my own for a few days. I've never traveled on my own before, and though I'm not really afraid (I'm pretty familiar with London), I also want to make myself as comfortable as I can in a somewhat new situation. I'm thinking about whether to look for a B&B or a hotel for lodging (I won't be there long enough for a flat, I don't think - probably four nights). Do any "solo travelers" have a preference for one over the other? A B&B seems like it might be a tad safer, just because the owner would know everyone who's supposed to be staying there on a given night, but maybe that's a false or irrelevant assumption. I'd welcome any opinions!
