MsGinkgo: I’ve not heard of AirBnB. Have you tried Expedia?

I’ve not used it myself, but my dad’s had great success with using it for trips in Spain. He hasn’t had any complaints about any of them and even managed to find a few hidden gems.

I can’t really help with recommendations, but I I’d live in London for 4 years so if you wanted to DM me any you were interested in, I could advise you on whether the area is a dud or not!

MsGinkgo:  Its near impossible to get cheap hotels that are not dodgy in London. The last time I was there I booked a ‘secret hotel’ on lastminute.con for about €130 per night. Really good location but you don’t find out the name of the hotel until you book. They are hotels that usually cost a lot more. It worked out really well. I haven’t booked airbnb in London but did in Amsterdam and I can honestly say it was the best accom I’ve ever stayed in for the money. Cheap, clean, very cute and amazing location.

I have been using AirBnB on 3 continents and have yet to be disapointed. Best location for the money, save some money by cooking instead of having to go out every meal (and splurge on a few restaurants that you really want to try), have an early evenin/lazy day when dealing with jet lag… There are some really cool and unique apartments out there too. read the reviews and communicate wi the hosts before booking to make sure it is what you expect. Most of them are really responsive.

MsGinkgo:  I don’t remember anything about uploading my ID but things might have changed. I registered in 2011 when it was more or less in beta and I had to verify my phone, email address and facebook but I think that’s it.
