Another good chain in London is Travel Inn and they price their rooms
per room rather than per person.  Various locations in London and the
URL for them is:

I don't know about a B&B -- couldn't afford it even if there were one.
But I must defend the dark walks.  Two years ago I was fortunate enough
to stay with a young artist friend in a studio in that area, and walking
back and forth to the Globe, or even back from the Royal National, was
an unalloyed delight.  Plenty of respectable or raffish but not
frightening people out walking too, the beauty of the river, open air
riverbank pubs open late filled with cheerful sounds and reassuring
lights.....

Very noisy to try to sleep in the a.m., though.  Commerce begins around
6 am with horns and crashes and curses.

I don't see why proximity to The Globe is a limiting factor.  Unless Red
Ken has eviscerated it, or an "industrial action" temporarily shuts it
down as happens to the buses from time to time, the London Underground
is quite reliable, easy to negotiate and close at hand in almost every
section of town.  London is also a safe city to walk.  On our last three
summer pilgrimages, we stayed in a hotel in St. James's and frequently
strolled to and from The Globe along the embankment and across London
Bridge or Blackfriars.

There are a great many small inexpensive hotels in areas in or near
Central London, but on the periphery of the posher sections.  Try
Kensington, Euston, Bayswater, Notting Hill, Bloomsbury, St. Johns Wood,
etc.  Hammersmith Road and the Cromwell Road are lined with them.  I
wouldn't want to be that far away, but the low prices might make the
trek worthwhile.
