General advice for choosing a London hotel
London is an amazingly large city, and there are small hotels and inns spread throughout, so you have to pay close attention to where in the city you are looking. Hotels in or near the West End or the tourist districts near Buckingham Palace tend to be the most expensive, but there are other areas near those where bargains can be found. Avoid booking at a hotel that isn't near any tourist attractions, because doing this means you'll end up spending a big chunk of your day going back and forth.
