Tune Hotels:Tune Hotels are a popular no frills chain in Asia and this is their first opening in Europe.They offer "5-star beds at 1-star prices" and are aimed at the savvy guest who wants the best value for money,whether they are leisure or business travellers – or the kind of person looking for a cheaper alternative to grabbing a cab home after a late night out enjoying the city.
Pavilion Hotel: The Pavilion Hotel is known as London's Fashion Rock and Roll Hotel as each room is more like a film set than a standard hotel.
Umi London: Umi is a new concept in hotels by having a service-led attitude usually associated with 5 star hotels. Umi was given a 3 star rating in 2007 but is a cut above others in the area. Notting Hill and Bayswater have plenty of mid-range hotels and it can be hard to choose from the masses. Umi is larger than most as it takes up 6 houses on a quiet square overlooking a private garden.
Tavistock Hotel:Tavistock Hotel is in a great location; Bloomsbury is the literary heart of London and where you’ll find the British Museum. Tavistock Hotel has an art deco entrance and 343 rooms. Some rooms overlook private gardens. There is a ground floor bar and well-priced restaurant. Free wireless internet service is available in the lobby.
Hi we are a family of 5 and spent a month in London last year. We had a fantastic apartment just off Oxford Street up near Tottenham Court Rd. We walked absolutely everywhere from that location even though it was the middle of winter. While the apartment was superb, I had to threaten legal action to get my bond back. The Irish owner of the property rental company has quite a reputation it would seem with telling people that she has already returned the bond. However, after some badgering we did get it back. I think we used London Property Rentals. The great thing about having an apartment is that you can save on food (eating out is pricey in London) and the apartments usually come with a washer/dryer. Maybe someone else can advise you on alternative bond options so that you don't lose anything in the event of a dishonest landlord. One thing to note is that PayPal doesn't protect you against anything to do with rental properties - I was under the impression that it does, but the "important" print clearly states that it does not. Have an amazing time, it is a wonderful city - my eight year old daughter plans to move there from Australia when she grows up!
