Any London A.netters Wanna Give Me A Room?

Sat Apr 15, 2006 1:00 am

Ok folks. Pending Delta still flying in July, I plan to non-rev over in july or august and vistit london for a couple days. I've been looking for a room and I cannot find one on the cheap or at all sometimes... So my question, would any a.nutter be willing to put me up for a day or two? Please?

Or if not, any other ideas where I can find a room?

You plan on non revving trans-atlantic in July to London? Hopefully you will find ATL E gates comfortable.

I got a room for 69 pounds at the Ibis Euston, just two blocks away from Euston station. Not bad for London. I spent one night in August and had booked the hotel about two weeks prior.

If you're looking for something cheap, try the Youth Hostel Association. You'll need to join first, but at your age it'd also be a good way to meet some people whilst you're over.

I stayed at a B&B 3 blocks away from Shepard's Bush Station along the Central line. Was dead easy getting downtown and was 35 GBP/night including breakfast. That, coupled with an Oyster Pass, made getting around London easy and cheap. E-Mail me for more info if you are interested about this place.

On an unrelated note, the Queensway station was (and remains) closed until May 2006. Is this related to the bombings or regularly scheduled maintainance?

Maintainance/engineering reasons. The sections of line closed following the bombings were only shut for a few weeks and re-opened as soon as repairs were finished.

I have one recommendation. Go to International Students House (ISH for short). Having both lived in and travelled in London, this is the absolute best place to go on the cheap. For about 18 pounds per night you get breakfast, 15 minutes of internet in their cafe, a 2 for 1 drink coupon in their already dirt cheap bar (ask myt332 about that) and a bed in a very clean 4 bed room that may or may not be full (sometimes you are the only one there). The place is always full of people from all over the world and the staff are great. Last summer, I met my girlfriend there. We were staying in the same (mixed) room and fell in love. Great place.

Ask your Delta cabin crew or pilot's about their LGW layover hotel is. They usually give crew discounts.
