kxk5420:  the pound is killer!! I will admit that we usually use OFS in Paris where the euro is much kinder to my Aussie dollars and where the hotels are outrageously priced for the teeniest of rooms. Airbnb is great too though. We love being able to buy food at the market and have a fridge to store it all. Saves money on restaurants too.

Off topic, but if you’re going to Paris and have some time to kill, I really, really recommend doing a class or walking tour with La Cuisine Paris. They really teach you about French food culture and have the best recommendations for shopping and restaurants. It’s not cheap, but so worth it. The price always includes generous amounts of food.

The last few times we’ve been to London we’ve stayed at the Hampton by Hilton in Waterloo. It’s very new and clean and in a good location but much cheaper than a lot of other places. Still not cheap (especially if you’re used to American prices), but that’s the UK for you! Hopefully you’ll find some more Airbnb options though!

It depends what you’re planning to do, really. When we went down to see the Olympic Park, we stayed at a fantastic hotel called the Westbridge in Stratford. It was super fancy. I seem to recall it being near to the tube, too, as we went shopping on Oxford Street the next day.

This is their website – somewhere like booking.com is a good place to look for hotels too. We always look on there 🙂

if you’re really on a budget, definitely look at travelodge, but also maybe consider university halls. they can be basic but i’ve always found them clean and often pretty centrally located.

london school of economics has some and also look at http://vacations.london.ac.uk/
