I think it's TravelInn or Travellodge that run a hotel at Euston and also County Hall, and you can book family rooms for a not outrageous price....v close to the tube etc.

We stopped at County Hall recently. It's right behind London Eye (really right behind) and costs about £80 for a family room. Didn't have a family room (went with sis - ) so don't know the size but the others were quite generous. Pleny of kids there as well. You would have to get the tube to go to the museums etc, but thats half the fun. Easy walking distance to Trafalger square & Tate, fairly quiet at night, would stop there with my kids if we went again. Only problem was loooong queue check in. can give you more details if you're interested.

Hi, we stayed in the County Hall Travel Inn last year and it was super (two adults and two children). The room was really big and very quiet. Breakfast was buffet style and the kids ate free (don't know if that was just a special offer off season or whether it's like that all the time). Anyway, it was a great location and I would definitely recommend it.

And it's a really easy tube journey to the natural history / science museums - just walk over the lovely new bridge to Embankment station for the district/circle line. And so much to do on the hotel's doorstep - A river boat trip, (to Greenwich),the Aquarium, check out any free events in the Royal Festival Hall and Somerset House (A fantastic week of shows and events 21st-26th july), or on the South bank (a traditional steam fair Aug 14th, i think), and there are plenty of family friendly places like Pizza Express close by (opposite the back of the National theatre).

Hi,
What about if you have three children? We always are made to take two rooms which makes it too expensive. We`d love to take our three, any ideas?
