London B&B recommendations?

I am planning a trip to London with my teenage daughter in April. I've never been to London and have no idea where to stay. We will probably be doing the basic tourist things, so probably we should not stay too far out. After reading some guidebooks and postings to this message board, I think that a B&B or apartment might suit out needs best. Does anyone have any suggestions for reasonably priced accomodations? I would like to keep under 100 pounds per night if possible.

In June 99, our family stayed at The White House B&B, just a short train ride from the center of town. It was inexpensive and pleasant. the website is

Charles-We stayed at the Wigmore Count on both of our trips. Found it conveniently located to the Marble Arch tube station, around the corner from Selfridge's and near Baker St. It wasn't extravagent by any means, but the staff was quite pleasant and most helpful, and the en-suite rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was always served quickly and was filling. At the time, Wigmore didn't have a lift (elevator) between floors if you're in need of one.

Have fun in London-it's a great, fast paced city. Take in a play or musical in the West End, and if you have a chance, explore areas outside of London.
You might want to do some homework before you go and plan out your daily activities...meaning if you're planning to visit more than 1 or 2 sites during the day, make sure they're relatively close to each other so you don't spend a lot of wasted time getting to/from each site. Many closing times are relatively early(5 or 5:30) and some advanced planning will allow you to make the most of your time. Outlying places are pretty much an all-day thing, and some, like the V&A or British Museum(free admission here) are at least a 1-day visit in themselves.

Contact the BTA before you go-they're a wealth of information, or you can visit one of their offices once you arrive in London.

Whatever you do, have a good map with you-inlcuding one for the tube. It'll be worth it's weight in gold!!

My wife and I stayed at the Melia White House on Albany St. near Regents Park. Quite lovely and comfortable and a tube stop across from the hotel. by al means contact the BTA for a map of London and a tube map. . .indispensible.

The Vicarage or the Abby House which is right next door. Both are in Kensington - a great neighborhood and a short walk to Kensington Palace.
