London Hotel <£60pn

Options
Hi all,

I'm looking for recommendations for London hotel rooms <£60pn, please.

As convenient for SW1 as possible but could be further out, e.g 5-10 mile radius, if there are good public transport connections.

I tend to gravitate towards Travelodge/Premier Inn. I'm not sure if there are independent establishments or others that are reliable and have comparable standards of cleanliness, etc..

Thanks in advance

    Very much depends on "when"  - £90 is generally good but can double or treble over Jubilee weekend
    Never pay on an estimated bill

    And if in summer - possiblilities can extend to vacant student halls of residence. Imperial College is SW1, but no idea what the curernt prices are as I think rooms only go on sale towards the summer.

    Think you will struggle to get a room for under £60, but go to Premier Inn and travellodge websites and see what you can get.
    Might also be worth trying Google Maps, find the area you want and search for hotel.

    There is a site called something like Bargain holidays/hotels. It's been so long since I looked.
    Some perfectly reasonable accommodation in good location as long as you don't want all the bells and whistles.
    There is one in Sussex Gardens that has it's sister hotel doing the breakfasts so you have to go outside a very short distance. It all depends on the dates and how far in advance you book.

    Hub by premier inn is a good choice although not sure it would get that cheap.
    I’d try trivago.

    As others have said, it will depend hugely on the dates and the demand. Some London Travelodge's do go as low as that  - you can find one for about £35 a night on a Sunday night in the next couple of weeks, for example, but it is very dependent on timing .

    You could also look at IBIS which is the Accor chain's cheapest option - they are basic but reliable. There's also EasyJet's Easy hotels - again, very basic - I have only stayed once and won't do so again as the bed was very uncomfortable (basically thin mattress on a solid plywood base . 

    There are several YHA hostels in London most of which have some single rooms - they are clean but very basic - (  you get a bed and that's it)  - you could check your dates for prices. I have paid less than £60 a night on occasion but prices depend on demand, and I think at the moment they are not renting out the dormitories so there is more demand for the smaller rooms. 

    All posts are my personal opinion, not formal advice Always get proper, professional advice (particularly about anything legal!)

    Thank you all

    Always try Google Maps if only to compare the two you mentioned,  Jon
