A friend of mine really liked the Springfield Hotel, just north of the
Lancaster Gate Tube stop. He said that it was nice and very clean, very
friendly staff, excellent breakfast and a rather small room for $100.
is 154 Sussex Gardens, Tel 0171 723 9898; Fax 0171 723 0874. We are planning
to stay here next trip because we are finding that rooms under $100 are
just not comfortable for us anymore, and because my friend said the street
hotel had a lot of charm.
We could get a cheaper room from TravelInn, but the location lacks atmosphere.
We always use AutoEurope for car rental, anymore. But I don't know if
they rent in London. It is worth trying. Used Kemwell on last two trips
UK and were a little disappointed.
Hope this helps.
