Cheapest Place To Stay In London

Sun Mar 11, 2007 5:40 am

Im currently suck in LHR. I cannot reach my freind that i was supposed to be staying with, so it looks like i will be spending one night in London without any idea/reservations.
Anyone know the cheapest place to get a bed for the night, with directions.

You can get a room in the Jury's Inn Hotel, located at Heathrow (near Terminal 4/Hatton Cross) for £42 tonight, according to their website: http://www.jurysinn.com/
From the construction site that is better-known as London Heathrow Airport

The Generator, beds starting at 10 pounds in a 12-bed dorm: http://www.generatorhostels.com/london/ and directions: http://www.generatorhostels.com/london/contactus/ I'd recommend going to Russell Square on the Piccadilly Line which is what I did when I was in London, staying at The Generator, with a friend a couple of years back. Good luck!

I highly recommend International Students House, a combination hostel/student residence right next to the Great Portland Street tube, near Regent's Park and a short walk down Great Portland to Oxford Circus and SoHo. I spent a lot of time there when I lived in London and have stayed for as long as 2 weeks. They have a great bar, a lively social scene and people in and out from all over the world. It is also the place you are the least likely to get your stuff stolen, because the professionalism of the staff seems to spill over.

You can get a dorm for about 12 pounds a night, but the better deal is the quad room where there will be no more than 4 and sometimes just you for 18.

No idea, I'm afraid. At least the Piccadilly Line runs straight from LHR to Russell Square for if you end up staying there.

Usually you should find something cheap.

Good luck

LHR isn't a great place to find a cheap place. It is mostly mid to high priced airport hotels without much character (other than aircraft spotting of course).

For on or near the airport, I don't expect you'll get anything better than the £42 room I posted at the Jury's Inn.

I've been staying at the Globetrotter Inn when I've been in London recently - http://www.globetrotterinns.com/english/index.php

Cheap, decent, and easy access to LHR on the tube.
