DH and I have 3 nights in London in 2 weeks time for a 40th birthday.
Its our first time away without kids for quite some time.
He has actually booked the Haymarket Hotel but tbh I'm not sure it's worth what he has paid so we are looking at other options and thinking of changing (it's fully cancellable).
I have been searching and searching and just can't figure out where the best place to stay is.
We like good food, will want to do a nice meal (maybe a michellin star one), afternoon tea one day, possibly a nice brunch another day and also a show.
We will also do some of the usual browsing - Hamleys, maybe Choccywoccydoodah (although I'm not even sure where that is located yet.
So, the areas I have found some nice hotels at decent prices are these:
Hotel Indigo (near enough Brick Lane that I can see)
Citizen M Bankside (Southwark)
Apex Temple Court ... this is a bit more expensive but still about £270 cheaper than the Haymarket)
Apex City of London
Ibis Blackfriars (seems ok but others seem nicer?)
Those are just some that I have found ... my eyes are sore from looking.
If I could even narrow down where we should stay I think I'd be able to get my head around it a bit easier.
All and any help is gratefully received!
