Heading to London for a few nights before Christmas with my teen Dd. Hoping to go to a show, do some shopping and general touristy Christmassy things.

Hoping for recommendations of a hotel that is decent and reasonably priced, fairly central/near a tube line I've been looking at travelodges but there are loads in London and not sure if any would be better than others.

I know accommodation isn't going to be cheap but would rather keep the budget for spending 😄.

Also if there are any must do/sees that we should do plead let me know! smile

Try the Holiday Inn Express (free breakfast) in Victoria.

Or check hotel rates on the interactive map at www.londontown.com

Check out www.timeout.com

I always prefer to stay near the Gloucester Rd tube station in Kensington (fab location, 3 tube lines, buses, the museums, Royal Albert Hall, Hyde Park) but the hotels may be a little higher in price, although there may be some budget hotels on the Cromwell Road nearby (however I do prefer to stay in the ‘chain’ hotels).

I’ve booked the new Premier Inn Southwark- Borough High Street for a few days before Christmas and the prices are great. If you’re prepared to pay the non refundable rate it’s £35 for some Sunday nights. Handy for London Bridge station and tube too.

Are you arriving by train, what station will you arrive at.

I stay at the newly upgraded Travelodge in Waterloo, it's really cheap at Christmas and central to buses and tubes. Nearby there is A Christmas Carol on at the old Vic, the Southbank centre winter wonderland, skating at Somerset house, carols at St Martin's in the Fields, the Christmas tree at Trafalgar square.

Have a loon at the Premier Inn at Putney Bridge. It's often cheaper as it's a bit further out but it's right on the district line with 3-4 buses to central London.
Plenty of reasonably priced restaurants just over Putney Bridge too

Premier Inn near the train station you’re arriving in can be a good base (family room, WiFi & breakfast.)
