We need actual numbers. What one considers budget or moderate can mean something else entirely to other people. What is your budget?

Also -- both of these cities have hundreds and hundreds of hotels. How many of you and when are you traveling?

Please do share your lodging budget; you'll get better suggestions if you do.

In the meantime, check the YHA properties in London - www.yha.org.uk

Also, number of people and time of year. In the summer you can stay in student residence halls in London. With enough people, an apartment might be better.

Too early for the halls. A triple with shared bath at the place I stay - http://www.ridgemounthotel.co.uk/prices - is a little over your limit. You might see if there is a deal at one of the chains - Premier or Travelodge - otherwise it will probably need to be a hostel. Try hostelworld.com, eurocheapo.com and booking.com.

Luckily the £ and € are down a bit vs the $

But $100 is still really low for a triple. Today that would be about £65 and €89 (could go up or down depending on the exchange rate) . That's definitely not 'moderate'.

$150 (£95/€130-ish) will be more doable but still pretty low - especially in London.

Jump on the travelodge website ASAP and see if there are any deals - they tend to be VERY date-specific. So one night might be £70 and the next night £120.
