I am looking for accomodation in London and Paris in End of March. What I am finding is it is best to try the apartments. I am using VRBO.com and http://www.holidaylettings.co.uk.

HTH.

Arran House in Bloomsbury, London, has quintuple rooms from £145, and we like it there a lot. There are similar small hotels in that area, like St. Margaret's.

Hi Nancy, I don't have any suggetions but just wanted to mention you tagged your thread as a trip report which it is not. You might want to click on the gray triangle to the far right of the "Add a reply" and ask the Fodor's editor to remove the trip report tag. Best wishes to you and your family, have a wonderful trip!

Can't help too much until you tell us what you consider "not expensive"

Also - how many days? While there are a very few 5-person rooms, at most hotels you'd need 2 rooms. If you are in town more than just 2 or 3 days, usually a flat will work better for families. Both space and money-wise . . . .

We will be in London & paris about 5 days each. I was hoping on the cost to be for one room about $175/nite.

Perhaps adjoining rooms? I'd hate to think of the bathroom wait every morning

If you want one room for $175/night, then you can probably book a dorm at a hostel. Just make sure it is booked for your family.

St. Pancras YHA is recommended here.

In Paris, Hotel Marignan would work, as they have rooms for groups. There's a recent review from a poster who stayed there.

Realistically, you are not going to find decent beds for 5 for $175 (€120-ish, £105-ish depending on the exchange rate when you travel) except for dorms at universities or hostels.

That's only $35 pp -- which would even be hard in major US cities where rooms sleeping 4 are the norm.

Renting an apartment in either city could get you a little closer to your budget.

Thanks for your inputs. I see now $175/nite is not realistic. Any other suggestions? What apartment website would you recommend/trust?

For hotels that sleep 5 in London and Paris, here are two resources.

A hotel is sometimes preferred over apartments because of front desk assistance and security and shorter stay options, though some apartments have those features, too.

On http://www.sleeps5.com the 'budget' category is for a hotel room for 5 under $150 night. 'Moderate' is between $150-250, though the prices vary with month of travel and exchange rates. Hotels are listed for London and Paris.

See also http://www.roomfor5.co.uk which also has hotels in London and Paris.

I hope something works for you!

Hotwire could work too. What you would do is enter 2 rooms, and 2 adults and 3 children, and do a search. See www.betterbidding.com .

For Paris rentals i orefer, Vacation in Paris. They have several 2 bedroom apts. that are just a bit over your price .

An example

You can pay in US dollars with a credit card and you get the key in the mail about 2 weeks before you leave.

I'm willing to bet Gallophile is a ringer advertising for that website. Someone registers just to post a link to a website -- yep, walks like a duck, talks like a duck . . .

Here's your Paris flat:

We stayed there a few years ago. We recommended it to some friends who stayed there last summer. Still fine and nice neighborhood.
