OT: London (England) Lodging?

Going to London in a few weeks. I realize most places have small rooms, but AC is a must. Not quite easy to see whether the hotel has that feature on some of the search engines.

Some people have recommended staying in Earl's Court. Close to train that goes to Heathrow, and close to Tube stations.

Would be nice to make sure clean, wifi, and reasonably priced. Would like a room with two double beds. Most places with two beds are twin beds.

Been going crazy in the online searches. Any experience from you London travelers? Recommendations? Going to be there for 7 nights for vacation.

i really don't think you'll need ac this time of year over there.

I worked at a call center over there several years ago. the phones would cut out of the temps got over 80 F. thats how rarely it gets hot there.

as much at the brits like to talk about their weather, its ridiculously mild.

If a cheapish hotel says it has AC then it's probably a noisy box just outside your window. You are very unlikely to need AC although we do occasionally have our moments over here.

The Tube goes right out to Heathrow, Piccadilly line I think.

I had tea at the Lanesborough once. It looked nice enough.

I always use Priceline when going to London. Use Bidding 4 Travel to see what you should bid. London prices are crazy, but a four star via PL is usually under a hundred in Kensington.

Anyone have any preferences of one area over another? Areas to avoid?

What those guys said...I don't think I've ever even seen an AC unit in England.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I personally like the Paddington station area or Bayswater. For hotel searches .... try the easyjet or ryanair sites. I would email the hotels and verify whether they have ac and do the same for double beds. You didn't say what your budget was...
