Wow! That's a real deal. Just last week I spent 3x that much for a Holiday Inn Express in London - but not London UK, I was in London Kentucky. I will give the Ramada a look. Thank you.

Thank you. I like the location near Hyde Park and the price is reasonable by London standards. My only concern is it appears to be almost 3/4ths of a mile to the nearest tube station.

Good idea. We used VRBO last month in Charleston SC and really enjoyed it. Would be well worth looking at Airbnb in London and the other areas that we are visiting. Thanks for the suggestion.
