- Cheap place to stay in London
I’m planning on visiting London for a couple of days in May to meet up with a friend 1 day and spend the other sightseeing. My normal place to stay at my BILs is not available, he’s got the cheek to be away when I’m going, so I need to find somewhere cheap and within 10 miles of the centre.Posted 3 months ago
Travelodges seem to be £70+ per night, so out of my budget.
Air BNB looks interesting at £20+ per night, although I’ve never used one, so no idea what to expect.
All I really need is a bed and somewhere to shower for two nights.
What does STW suggest / recommend?unfitgeezerMember
Doesn’t your BIL trust you to stay in his property when he’s not there?!?😬 what are you not telling us ?!?
Failing that Camp ! Lee valley camp sitePosted 3 months agosenor jSubscriber
I have to say I thought the same as unfitgeezer(who I hope is recovering btw)!Posted 3 months ago
Although my money is on the BIL not wanting his special cupboard/room to be discovered.
There are cheap hotels in Stevenage/welwyn/Hertford – 20 min away from kingsx!
My Spanish cousin got a really good deal for a week recently ,right on Tottenham court road..St Giles if I recall correctly.crazy-legsSubscriber
Try easyhotel (from the people that brought you cheap orange planes).
I got a ridiculously cheap night in Manchester a while ago (solely because of a very late train into town and no connecting service out to mine at that time of night, it was far cheaper to stay in town than get a taxi out to mine!)
Basic rooms (with a fair amount of orange) but spotlessly clean and perfectly functional.Posted 3 months agoMTB-IdleMember
I went to our staff xmas party in December in Liverpool Street and due to a combination of circumstances ended up missing my tube home.
Being too tight to pay for a cab from central London out to surrey I managed to stay overnight at St Christopher’s at the Inn Hostel in Borough High Street, 250 metres from London Bridge for the princely sum of £16.
Okay so it was a shared room but I was last in and first out and the bed was clean and comfy.
Back into work the next morning still in my DJ.Posted 3 months agounfitgeezerMember
No offence having looked at their website and also making the mistake of watching their YouTube promo not a fricken chance !!! I get it if you’re on a ‘gap’ year or ‘Traveling’ and happen to be no older than 24…
Personally I’m way to old and traveling is a memory long gone…
Obviously your BIL doesn’t trust you with his wife 🤭 is she fit !
if they’re married its his house as well technically.

By way of a little update, Palmers lodge wasn’t too bad. Although there did seem to be a late night rustling convention most evenings. On the second night there was quite loud dance music playing the reception bar area until around 11pm, which was a tad annoying.Posted 2 months ago
The bed was clean and comfortable, but the only moan really was the locker. It takes the form of an underbed roll out drawer with a hasp for a padlock, there was only just enough room for the stuff I wanted to leave there during the day, but I managed.
For £12.50 a night, I’m not gonna complain too much.
