London Hotel

My wife, son and I are visiting London in July. Can anyone recommend a hotel(s) near a tube stop in the $150 to $200 a night category? Thanks

Try www.londontown.com. They usually have quite a few hotels available in your price range.

There are a lot of hotels in London in your price range. You may want to do some initial searching on a site like expedia.com or travelocity.com to get some ideas of the hotels available and their rates. Make sure you put 3 people in your search so you get hotels that allow 3 to a room.

To stay in a central location with easy tube access, you may want to stick with the Mayfair, Westminster, Kensington and Bloomsbury areas (listed in approximate cost highest to lowest.) Keep in mind that "star" ratings in London tend to be a bit higher than in the US. A 3-star rating in London would be closer to a 2-star in the US.

Actually $100- $150 is about 75-100 GBP. For three people that's doable but not easy. I'd look for B&B's or try the numberous websites (London thread)or Londontown.com for those offering special rates.Booking from a website often gets you a better price.The colleges and universities in London have rooms available during the summer months, but I have no personal experience with them.

The TravelInn County Hall is about £85/night and is a very central location.

Try londontown.com. When I searched in that price range for a B&B, I found nice family rooms at The Hyde Park Radnor (109GBP, which I reserved), The Balmoral House (100GBP), and St. George Hotel (123GBP). All with breakfasts included.

Bloombury area will appeal to you both. Search for hotels in that area. Very safe, lots of moderate restaurants to chose from, easy access to tube.

I've had good luck with:

www.lastminute.com

Most recently I secured a great hotel in Mayfair for only 99 pounds per night.

look at helpyoubid.com for prices people are getting through Priceline in various locations. We got $115 per night at the 4* Waldorf Hilton in the Westend (Soho/Mayfair). How old is your son? Young enough for a cot in the room?

Many London hotel rooms have no provision for children in a double room, particularly if purchased on Priceline. I wouldn't risk it personally (unless possibly I bid only for the South Bank zone, since the hotels that have shown up so far at the 2* and 3* level have liberal policies in respect to children).

We have used the Reubens at the Palace. 2 blocks from Victoria. Great location, nice bar and great breakfast.

Hi. My husband and I stayed at the Thistle Victoria a couple of years ago and loved it. We did not have our daughter with us so I don't know about a thrid person, however, I think it is in your price range. The room was small by American standards but they are generally in Europe. The great thing about the location is that it shares a wall with Victoria Station (no noise from this though, but our room was not against this wall). You can catch the trains there or go outside to a main bus station. The "escorted tour" buses are at a station only a block away, we used these to go to Bath, Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, Stratford-on-Avon etc.. It made getting around London so easy and stress free. The rooms had been newly renovated so everything was really nice (a phone and heated towel bar in the bathroom) and it was very clean. The hotel lobby was stunning. Continental breakfast was included ( hot food added for a charge) and nice as well. Located on Buckingham Rd so is just down the street from the Palace. If we ever go back I would stay there again, it was my favorite trip ever! You'll have a great time as there is so much to see. Have fun!!
