Subject: Re: London Apt/Hotel
Hi Ziners:

We just returned from a quick trip to London (May 5). The exchange rate is really bad for the US dollar and you will probably find that getting a room with a bathroom for $80 US will be tough. We stayed at the Vicarage Private Hotel, a nice B & B in Kensington. Good beds, we did share a bath, but it was fine, never really saw the other people in the hall and it provided a great breakfast for $78 GBP a night, which translates to $125 (about) US. We were really happy with the place, took the bus and trains and it is in a great location. The can be found in the Let's Go travel guide, Frommer's travel guide and their email is reception phone 020 7229 4030 web site is http://www.londonvicaragehotel.com/ Hope this helps. London is quite expensive.
