Subject: Re: Reasonably priced London hotels
Hi Ziners,

We stayed last week for two nights at the Travel Inn at County Hall, just across from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. It is about 80 pounds a night for two without breakfast. Howver they provide a nice coffee and tea tray in the room which with a yogurt or bun gave us a good breakfast. Good for families because they have larger rooms with two beds and no charge for kids, I believe. Right beside the London Eye. Great private bathrooms, professional service. Walk to Westminster subway stop.

On phase one of our trip we stayed at the Linden House Hotel near Paddington. We got a deal through Superbreaks (third night free) which made it cheaper than the Travel Inn. No elevator, shower a bit wonk, room a bit sparse but friendly people and good traditional breakfast was included. There is a super little pub up the street too. I wouldn't recommend the hotel at full price but with the discount it was acceptable. Lots of Brits staying there. We booked through

We also stayed one night at the Gatwick Travel Inn - even cheaper. Very close to the North Terminal (we took the 2 pound fare bus when we arrived late at night but walked the few minutes the next morning).

Just got back two hours ago - I'll post more about museums, etc. very soon.
