You can find excellent very well priced accommodation around London using Airbnb!

We run an Airbnb bed and breakfast down in Devon (house below) - and we have stayed in Airbnb accommodation all over the place. You can find the wonderful little gems with totally committed hosts and really frightful places which you put done to experience! You absolutely have to read the details of each listing - and read the reviews! We have had people coming to East Quither Farm expecting to take over our whole house -  or our kitchen etc simply because they have not read the description. Basically use Airbnb wherever we go - but we do do our homework!

Captain Bligh House

100 Lambeth Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 7PT, UK – 020 7928 2735

The best decision we made on our London trip last fall was staying at the Captain Bligh House. Excellently located, immaculate, very affordable, why would we ever look anywhere else? The room was as-described, prepared with all the amenities necessary for comfort and self-catering. Our room (The Crow's Nest) was among the treetops, quiet, and peaceful - simply charming. Transportation was easy as could be: bus stations are across the street, the Lambeth North tube station is a very short walk away, and it's just a few minutes walk to Waterloo Station which will deliver you further afield via National Rail. Plenty of dining and drinking within walking distance. The War College itself has beautiful grounds if you feel like a sunset stroll. Curiosities abound a short walk away at the Lower Marsh Market. We could spend days without leaving the vicinity and there'd still be stuff to see! Gayna and Simon were lovely hosts, providing us with detailed information about the area around the house as well as plenty more to see and do in London. Always available if we needed them, never intruding when we wanted peace and quiet. Without a doubt we will stay here again!

We loved our stay at this incredibly charming B&B. It's in a great location - on a quiet street extremely convenient to several bus stops and a quick 3-minute walk to the Lambeth North underground station. The owners were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. We stayed in the Royal Suite and loved the room and decor - we would absolutely stay here again and hope we have the chance to, soon! We honestly didn't have a single complaint about our stay and could not have asked for better accommodations for our trip to London.

Grenville Hotel

4 Guilford St, London WC1N 1DR, UK – 020 7405 9470

pretty good for the price I found the staff quite helpful and polite and the room was clean = yes the shower is small and internet just about quick enough to steam 720p netflix.

Lovely staff, decent room for price

If you would like something truly different you might like to have a look at Airbnb. These are mostly B and Bs provided by people on a very informal basis. The may have a spare room, a yurt, a cottage or a barge with space they can receive guests for a night or a month! The website is highly professional. You can really see what you are going to get. Very well worth a look. Airbnb also show 'conventional' B&Bs as well. Enjoy!
