I am coming to London in July for 10 days. My sister and I will probably stay a week in London, with about 3 days spent in countryside. I've looked mainly in the areas of:
St James (probably can't afford)
My price range is around $175 - 200 USD a night and those areas have some TALF favorites. I stayed in Belgravia 29 years ago, before the British real estate tax skyrocketed, and actually paid for a single basic room, w/bath in hall. It was very clean, convenient and friendly hosts. I paid 16 pounds a night, down to 8 when I got weekly rate. Included a small, cooked breakfast. I'd say the same would be around 60 pounds a night now.
I thought the Belgravia was close to a lot of sites and I walked a lot. I'm older and want to be as centrally located as I can and meet my budget.
I ealize that London has evolved since I was there.
Do you think Belgravia is still a good location? Or the other areas ?Thanks for your insight, I'm using this forum to make my trip as memorable as I can. Deb
