Hi, I have to stay overnight this weekend in London with my mate for a medicine talk at Imperial College London, and as we are both under 18 our options are limited... Does anyone have any suggestions, I would not like to stay in a "rough" area (I am not a snob, but being from "up north" I hear of stabbings and I obviously get scared lol!!!)... Does anyone have any suggestions, I say up to around £90 a night with breakfast would be reasonable, no more than that please... I have looked around, can't find much. Thanks in advance.

EDIT BY COMMUNITY TEAM

Other members have asked on the Travelodge site and they said that 16-year-olds can book and stay

Another option is to find a B&B on https://www.booking.com/

Premier Inn also allow 16-year-olds.

You'd be hard pressed to find anything like that anywhere near Imperial. If you look for a place near a tube station on the District or Circle line, you would be able to take the tube to Gloucester Road or South Kensington, which are both not a long walk from Imperial.

Cheers for your help. Please could somebody recommend some trusty, reliable and reputable hotels in London (I know, a bit general), maybe Euston, somewhere not too far from a tube station (within easy walking distance?). Thank you.

Stay in a Youth Hostel. There's loads in London so I'm sure you'll find one near and they're reasonably cheap compared to hotels.

Could always go for a Travel/Premier Inn type chain of hotels.
They're usually pretty affordable, i.e. less than £90, and you always know what you're getting. I stayed in one in central Leeds which was £30 a night, I'm guessing it won't be hugely more seeing as their a chain. Although might wanna check seeing as it is London (:

Try www.ichotelsgroup.com/exclusive, shove in London for this weekend and you'll find some hotels have some decent rates available. Holiday Inn Express Southwark stands out as decent value at £87 including breakfast. They get cheaper if you're willing to stay further out and commute.

Way to perpetuate the stereotype. There are no rough areas in town that could be considered rougher than your average city centre at night. I felt more threatened in Manchester the last time I was there than I do here.

Stay in the YHA St Pancras, the Camden Inn or something like that. Reputable youth hostels here are very safe and quite comfortable.

HI Resortini,

I hope it is not too late for a reply, but I went through same situation with my under 18's nephew. I suggested The Normandie Hotel ins Sussex Gardens,London,W2. It is very close to Paddington tube station, where you can get to Imperial College in less the 20 minutes. It costs £35-45 per night. Another option is to search for a hostel at yha.org.uk and chose St Pauls one. Its very central , very clean and cheap,around £10-15 per night.
Good Luck
