You might want to try Goodenough College located in Mecklenburgh Square, 
very convenient to the BL. I believe it's a Canadian run institution 
designed for accommodating international students studying in London, 
but they also cater to senior faculty researching in London for extended 
periods of time. It's quite large and they have a club, pub, dining 
facilities, etc.. I stayed there several years ago for nearly a month 
and found it reasonable on all accounts. I don't remember the rates, but 
they have a website and you can make individual inquiries via the site.

Jack,

I'm not sure this is what you are looking for but I used the "Name Your 
Own Price" feature on Priceline and got a four star hotel for $65 per 
night in midtown London.

To Jack and other researchers,

120 dollars per day seems an awful lot to me -- obviously fine if you're 
sharing but if you want a single room you might be better off with one 
of these at closer to 90 dollars:

And if you're on a very tight budget, there are also these, but quality 
will vary!:
