Solo accommodation -- London -- Dec 19-ish

Jump to last reply

I've just read through more than a dozen threads about Xmas/NYE time in London, checked and found good economy saver award availability for flights and am ready to head to the UK Dec.19-ish for a couple of weeks.

I am looking for suggestions for accommodation in central London. On previous non-holiday-time solo trips I have used YHA and private hostels in central London, LSE dorms, and a (now gone) small hotel near the British Library. Budget is $100 -- $125 a night.

I would like something a bit more upscale (less student oriented) than a hostel or LSE as it is the holidays. I hope to take in MANY concerts (including trying to get tickets to a couple of events at Royal Albert Hall) and a play or two. And finally do the Harry Potter Studio tour. And walk and walk and walk if the weather is dry. But it it is not there are marvelous museums to re-visit.

Does renting a small apartment for two weeks make sense? Is LondonConnection reliable?

I will head over to TripAdvisor for hotel suggestions as well as usual booking.com check. But suggestions here would be most welcome.
