Subject:    Reasonable London Lodgings as Recommended by SHAKSPER Subscribers

 

I have been asked by some to post the results of my request for information about lodgings in London. I have lost track of the number of recommendations but the number was well over 30. 

 

I have tried to organize those recommendations into I. Hotels (including bed and breakfast guest houses and family run hotels), II. Short-Stay Apartments, III. University/College Residence Halls that welcome scholars, and IV. Web Sites for searching.

 

I should add that by far and away the most recommended Hotel was the Tavistock in Tavistock Square.
