Can Anybody Recommend an Hotel in London?

#1
I'm looking for a reasonably priced hotel or B&B in London; it has to be suitable for 3 small kids, so no crackwhore fleapits around Kings Cross or the UJ club thank you :D

North of the river is probably best, with access to all the tourist sites, or close to a tube.

If anybody knows a decent place I'd be grateful.

Depending on when you are travelling you could utilise any of the offers currently running in the newspapers.
Failing that try Londontown.com. I,ve always found them OK.

The Spousal Unit recently stayed at The Royal Trafalgar in Trafalgar Square. I think they offer ajoining rooms with a linking door for families. Restaurant service was iffy but there are plenty of places to eat in the area.

http://www.laterooms.com is also a good option.

I find Brown's quite good, and family friendly. Claridges is ok, but a bit touristy.

FFS is he letting out No 10 now :x

Holiday Inn is not bad
I wouldn't fancy staying at No 10. Can you imagine trying to keep your food down while looking at that gotch eyed mong, and listening to him alternately growl and whinge his way through dinner?

I'd be sleeping with my valuables taped to my body and a weapon within reach as well....


Thanks for the replies; nothing like a bit of local knowledge :D

Try the Victory Services Club. It's an all ranks club with excellent facilities (restaurant, bar, reading room etc). Two minutes walk from Marble Arch and the rooms are around £50 a night. You have to pay £20 a year to join though. http://www.vsc.co.uk/

I'd agree on this. It's not the Ritz but its comfortable, clean and cheap.

Try top secret rooms on laterooms:

Basically you chose the area you want, chose how many stars / what facilities you want and they will give you a list of available rooms. You don't actually find out which hotel it is until the last minute, but you get big discounts and it all adds to the fun.

Try the Sunborn Yacht by the Excel Centre. DLR/Tube links into centre, not too expensive, they do good deals, very comfortable and a little bit different.

The Sunborn Yacht Hotel at Excel is no more, I'm afraid. It sailed over the horizon late last summer, destination Nigeria. I think it was bought by the Government there.

Bugger...!!!!! Shows how long it's been since I've been over that way. Spent many a good night there. I just looked and see they're going to replace it with a new one soon. Hope they do.
Thanks for the heads up Soleil.

They've usually got something interesting going on. Lots of stuff in Kensington sort of area. Museums- Hyde Park etc. and only 10mins or so from the centre of town.
