Reasonably priced hotels near Picadilly/theaters

We're looking for a London hotel that will accomodate our large family of 7. Since we would need at least 2 rooms, we would prefer a hotel that has large enough rooms to accommodate 3 to 4 people each. We would like to pay rates under $200/night. Location is very important since we would like to be near the Tube and walking distance to theater district. Clean and neat is important. Doesn't have to be too fancy. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

There's a huge old hotel that sits right in the middle of Piccadilly Circus called the Palace. Rooms are very inexpensive, but I think that's because it's "seen better days." I also believe the baths are down the hall.

If you only want to base there to be near the tube and theatre district, you can really stay anywhere in London, because the tube is a quick and easy walk from just about anywhere and Leicester Square (theatre district) is a tube stop away from Piccadilly.

Think about a nice neighborhood like Kensington, South Kensington or Knightsbridge. There are very reasonable, small boutique-style hotels in the area with rooms (including bath & breakfast) for under 100lbs a night, such as the Montana, Adelphi, Comfort Inn Kensington and all are no more than a block away from the Gloucester Road tube, which has a direct line (blue line) to Piccadilly, Leicester Square, Covent Garden, etc.

The area around Victoria Station is also full of B&B's.

Have a great trip!

If there's 7 of you - maybe an apartment rental might be cheaper - I don't know??

Anyhow - go back a couple of days and check out a trip report about a couple staying in a 2 bedroom London apartment for a week for about 600 pounds.

Heading was Cotwolds, London, Paris - or something..

It depends on how long you are planning to stay. Many apartments have a one week minimum. Search for London apartments on Google or other search engine. We opted for an apartment instead of 2 hotel rooms because not only is it cheaper, but we can cook some of our own meals and save on restaurant costs - also snack whenever we want.

Thank you for your suggestions. However, we are not staying long enough (less than 1 week) to make staying in an apartment work. So, we are in need of hotel recommendations only. Thanks.

It would help to know when you are going. Marriott right now has a special sale going on with nice discounts. For example, you can get a room at London Marriott Grosvenor Square a great hotel in a great location for 90 pounds a night in January 2002. When are your dates...by the way if you get on Marriott web page to search use code OTP and these sale prices expire I think in Feb 2002.

LR - Many flat rental agencies do not require a one week minimum. Some even rent on a nightly basis. For a group of 7, a three bedroom flat seems the only reasonable choice.
