The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
Options seem, to me to be:
UJ or VSC. Stayed in VSC. Got a clean but small crappy room for dead cheap. No problem - just a place to sleep - did the job & fair fry-up in the morning.
never been to UJ.
www.laterooms.com Always worth a look.
Perhaps www.lastminute.com too
Next time - plan ahead!
UJ right next to Waterloo station - you can get Waterloo & City line to Bank which is walking distance to L'pool St - or a bus no doubt
I've stayed in both, and prefer the VSC. Recently upgraded public rooms, more helpful staff, and more central. Some cheap and cheerful old-style rooms, the rest refurbished to high standard. Easy access to Tube - Marble Arch to L'pool St on Central Line direct. UJ always full of Frogs as UJ has a contract with Eurostar to accommodate their crews.
Hope I'm not too late, but I choose VSC over UJC every time. Nicer staff, nicer location, nicer rooms (esp. public rooms. Even got a half-decent Bar.
Separate names with a comma.
