London Hotel for one night

My husband are stopping in London for one night on our trip from US to Africa both ways. We are flying into Heathrow. Any recommendations for a hotel where we can walk to restaurants and pubs. Would like it under 100 GPB (if that's possible).

just about any hotel in London will be w/i walking distance of restaurants and pubs. For that budget, I'd use Priceline. Check out biddingfortravel.com for hints and lists of PL hotels in London. There are lots of hotels for under £100 but most will be fairly basic. For around $100 (not £100) you can get a 4 star hotel in central London.

The best way to get into London from LHR will partly depend on which hotel you end up using. The Tube, a car service or a train are all options - but different modes will be better for different locations.

janis: Can I ask you to verify what you just said -- a 4-star hotel in central London for $100?

"Can I ask you to verify what you just said -- a 4-star hotel in central London for $100?" yep - if one uses priceline.

A few months ago 4 stars could regularly be "won" for $75 - $85, but rates have gone up a bit. There is still the odd $80 successful bid - but more now fall in the $95-$120 range.

We not infrequently use Priceline for central London. It's been closer to a purported £60 than £50 lately, and - quite disgracefully and utterly illegally - the rates are quoted before tax, so the purported £60 is really £70.

But that fluctuates, and we usually need rooms during the working week, when rates are higher.

As a general rule, 4 starish hotels on Priceline in London are less than half their New York equivalent: I couldn't find anywhere below $300 in Manhattan the other day.
