    You're not going to get a cheap hotel on London, only a less expensive one. Huge amounts of London is within 15 minutes of South Kensington by tube.

    You ultimately need to spend time looking for your dates as hotel pricing can be very random. Stick with a chain if you want a fairly predictable level of quality. You may find special offer sites like Wowcher or Groupon have some surprisingly good offers, especially if you're only staying a few nights.

    If it's just you or you're with someone who doesn't mind getting snug, micro-hotels can save you huge amounts of money. Easy Hotel, Premier inn hub. Rooms that are a bed, bathroom and the minimum amount of space to walk between them, 6 nights for 'only' £400.

        Reminded me of Walk with Tim. His vids are pretty comfy, even when reviewing the worst of the worst Brittania hotels. I like that he doesn't just seek out terrible places and he always gives hotels/camps a fair shot.

    Hotels in London are really expensive. About 6 years ago I've paid 200 usd/night to stay at Mercure Kensington. Can't say I liked it (really small room and cramped bathroom). But it was a good cost benefit. Close to 2 tube stations, decent neighborhood and easy to get to Oxford Circus, Covent Garden and South Kensington. Location wise, I would stay at the Dilly. More expensive than those Mercures but very well located.
    You just need to stay in zone 1, OP. I would try to stay in the area between Knightsbridge at west (but kensington is not bad as well), Holborn at east, Regent's Park at north and South Bank at South. The problem is that those areas are the most expensive to stay.

        I'm a tourist. Why would I stay in Streatham? What I mean is that I could get a better hotel in Paris or NYC for the same price and in a neighborhood in the same league. London seems very expensive even compared to other global cities.

    Cripes sake, not hearing too much good so far.
    Why is London considered the greatest city in the world by tourist companies if you can't even get a cheap hotel?

      It's developed, in Europe (although brits think otherwise), english speaking, easy to navigate, great museums, shopping, restaurants, theatres and concerts, nice parks. It's easy to see why London attracts so many tourists. It is fricking expensive though and it has some "rough areas" (not touristic though) for those who are from first world countries and are not used to the problems of living in big cities.

      its just a city that attracts a lot of people that don't know any better - has the best collection of museums, it is one of the top cities represented in media with stories still popular form over 200 years
      or people have 1 friend that moved abroad to london of all places, so people go to visit them
      and it has the cheapest atlantic flight often and usually the one city everywhere in europe flies to, and every other country flies to

      said, it's been well represented in media. Everyone knows those buses, regent street (even if don't know its name), the telephone booths...

      London blows but Americans are impressed by a city that isn't a massive collection of Wal-Marts. Also London is a massive travel hub, every time I have flied to Europe I had to go through London first or else my flight would cost 500$ more.

    Don’t even waste your time. Go to Liverpool if you want to say you were in England and then just spend your time in Edinburgh it’s much better and cheaper.

    Never going to happen, particularly not now with the coronation. BUT I have a rule that basically everything here is within 40 minutes door to door no matter where it is and I've been here over 2 decades
