When i was in the military i was stationed in the South of England and London was only about an hour by train from where i was stationed. So quite often i would hop on the local train and spend a long weekend in London.
If you know what you are looking for you can find hotels in London city centre centre, that are very cheap and nice places to stay. So i thought  i would write a short review about two of them.

DAYS HOTEL WATERLOO.                                                     
Kennington Road  Se17bj  London United Kingdom

This is a great family orientated hotel with 162 en suite rooms, also it has a cafe, bar and lobby plus WLAN Internet access. The bar and lounge are open 24 hrs a day and is a great place to relax with good company.
The nice furnished rooms have en suite bathrooms with a power shower, i tried one of those once, got the setting wrong, thought i had set it to warm but set it to cold. That was a shock and a half i can tell you that.You get tea and coffee making facilities, TV with free view and sky channels a nice double bed and you can regulate the heating settings yourself.

The hotel is only a ten minute walk from Waterloo station, standing across from the imperial war museum, this central locate hotel is great for the west end theatres, shopping and most other things that go on in a capital city like London. The city airport is about 15 kn from the hotel and Heathrow airport about 29 km away.
Now this is the best bit, prices start at only £58.25 per night.

THISTLE CITY BARBICAN.                                                        
Central Street Clerkenwell  Ec1v 8ds London United Kingdom

This is a 6 storey main building and a 5 storey neighbouring building , built in 1968 and renovated in 2000. It is situated at the edge of London's square mile and close to the Barbican centre. The hotel has 463 bedrooms including executive and superior rooms and wireless internet is available.

The rooms have en suite bathrooms, hairdryer, a direct dial telephone satellite cable TV, Intenet accesess, a fridge, central heating and a hire safe. The hotel has a health and leisure club and swimming pool. Also there is a gym for sports enthusiasts.

The hotel is located close to the town centre and is near the underground network as it is called in London. Most othe places in the world it is called the Metro. There are plenty of shops, bars and nightclubs in the area and the hotel staff can give you all the info on the local area that you need.

Prices start from £84.39 per night, which again is a fantastic price for a hotel in one of the most expensive city's in the world.

Well, i hope this has been a little help to any would be travellers to London and you can always get more info on the net.
