    I have been asked by a friend to suggest safe and economical accommodation in London.
    It is for his daughter who just graduated from university and on a budget trip to London

    My experience of London is hotels paid for by my employer. London can be quite expensive for lodging.
    \
    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks for your help.

    Is there a need to be right in the thick of things? Sheraton Heathrow was an affordable alternative I've stayed at and thought was perfectly reasonable accommodations. As you, all my other experiences are at more expensive properties.

    Heathrow is a bit out of the way. Tube is an expensive way to head to the thick of things.
    I recognize that central will be expensive.....but perhaps half way.
    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Have you looked at 3* prices on Hotwire? Or consider same on Priceline?

    Air bnb or VRBO may be worth a try.

    Probably too late for this but for future London stays - Hoxton Hotels, Z Hotels, Citizen M and the new hostel chain Generator

    She could look into couchsurfing, I was hosting people there too when I live in London.
