FI and I stayed in the Kensington Close Hotel.  It was in a great area…around the corner from the tube and nearby Portobello Road Market and Notting Hill.  If I remember, it was reasonably priced, for London that is!

When I went to London, I stayed at the Kensington as well.  It is a beautiful hotel, a nice breakfast buffet in the morning that is included (I believe), and an internet cafe – that did cost some money.  Breakfast consisted on fresh fruit, crosants, etc.  They also have a nice pub in the hotel where you can get some USA beers and malt beverages, but also the Brittish beer too.  You are close to the Underground – just around the corner.  I was there in 2006, so some things may have changed in the hotel itself, but overall it was a beautiful hotel.

We stayed at the London Bridge Hotel, which was great for the money! It’s a contemporary 4 star hotel just around the corner from tube. I want to say we paid around $150 or so per night last year.

London is full of fantastic accommodations.  Is there a specific area you’re considering or type of hotel (e.g., historic & traditional vs. modern & chic) or attractions that you wish to be near?

What kind of atmosphere, price range and location do you want? London hotels can be very hit or miss. Some independents are jewels while others look great on Expedia but iwll turn out to be rat-infested hovels!!! Provider more details and I can help you out! (I live in London)

FH and I were there in May and stayed at the Sloane Square hotel, rooms were a bit small, though we could have paid a little more and upgraded, but great location.

I always try to find a London hotel under 100 GBP and hope for the best – usually I am disapointed. Based on a recommendation, my parents stayed at the Holiday Inn (there are 2 next to each other and they are literally around the corner from a tube stop) when they went in 2003 and were really pleased with the hotel and location. I agree with PP on hit or miss independants.
