Three of us stayed for the month of May 2009 at Endsleigh Court 
Apartments on Woburn Place, just off Russell Square and very near the 
British Museum. It was  two blocks from Euston Station where a small 
Marks and Spencer grocery store provided everything we needed for 
cooking in and avoiding the exorbitant restaurant prices. We had a 
comfortable room with small kitchen and private bath for $120 a day 
total for the three of us. If you choose this, arrange for an apartment 
that does not face the street, to avoid the street noises.
