Budget Hotel in London

Has anyone stayed at the Southwark Rose Hotel in London? Seemed ok and reasonably priced, but I wanted to hear some opinions. Alternatively, how about the Premier Lodge in Southwark; same price, about the same location.

Do you really want to stay in Southwark - the land of the clampers?

Clamper? Should I know what that means?

Clamper - one who clamps cars that are parked illegaly, without remorse or compassion for human feelings.

Ah, I see. Well, as I won't have a car, it shouldn't be a problem.

But back to the topic, has anyone stayed at any of the budget hotels in this area, particularly the Southwark Rose?

Have a look at the Travel Inn County Hall. A better location south of the river I think.

I was considering that, but they don't seem to have A/C, which I think will be important in August. Southwark Rose is cheaper, and has A/C.

Before you book, make sure all the rooms (or at least the room you're booking) has A/C. Sometimes hotels will advertise A/C but all their rooms don't have it, or just the common areas have it.

Hi. Looks like the hotel you picked is pretty good. To view some other people who have spent the night at the Soutwark Rose hotel, view them on TripAdvisor:

http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Rev...n_England.html

However, the other great choice is Priceline. I just landed a great deal on the Holiday Inn London - Kensington Forum. I got the hotel for only $72.00 per night (Yes, US Dollars). On Holiday Inn's website, it is 106 pounds per night with two nights at 84 pounds.

I saved so much money. If you need help placing a bid, go to www.biddingfortravel.com and click on the hotel link at the top of the page. Then click on "England/Lodnon." Then click on the hotel list. The site will then post winning bids for the different star level hotels. Good luck.

If you're a single or a couple, go to www.biddingfortravel.com and learn to bid on Priceline.
