This is the first book I refer to when planning a trip to London, which is usually once a year. The breakout by postal code is helpful and it gives a nice flavor of the neighborhoods. There's also a good range, budget-wise. I've never been steered wrong when planning my accomodations using her book!

Claims to be cheap sleeps. I guess aimed at overseas visitors. Very few cheap sleeps. Cheap should have been taken out of the title.

Excellent for budget travellers 9 Dec 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
London hotels are very expensive, but the B&B scene can be pretty overwhelming. Unless you're only looking for a chain hotel experience, this book is a must-have for anyone trying to figure out how to save some money on accommodations. Everything from youth hostels to boutique hotels are covered. The author does a complete write up of each property, so you have an excellent idea of what you're getting into. My only complaint is that it's too short, but as the author checks out every place personally, I guess she covers what she can.

Every city should have a resource like this. 18 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Cheap Sleeps" gave us flawless advice for our first trip to London. The author describes lodgings with enough detail that we could tell not only whether she liked the lodging, but whether we would. I wouldn't stay anywhere in the city without checking it in this book first.

Our first choice in choosing a place to stay in London. 25 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The descriptions and details in Cheap Sleeps are accurate and very helpful - not only to the first-time traveler but also to those who want to try a different area or a different price range.

Excellent Book - Don't book in London without it 25 May 2001
By Old Fisherman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This will be our first trip to London in August. Orginally we'd booked accomodations at a Best Western but the thought of flying all the way to London and staying in a Best Western just didn't do anything for me. So we bought this book. Through it we found and rented a two bedroom apartment in Chelsea overlooking the Thames. The price was about the same as a upper middle hotel room. Without this book I never would have considered this or even known how to go about it.
As the author states this book is not about finding the cheapest but the best value for the money. It also contains many helpful hints on what to bring, what to pack, and just general information about London. I'd recommend it to anyone, especially first timers.

Not that cheap 29 May 2001
By Kerry Hogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I saw the title of this book I thought it was meant for me but I guess I just have different definition of "cheap". There are a few "cheap" places listed in her book ...but not many, and not enough to make the purchase of this book worthwhile. I would recommed getting Rick Steves London or Let's Go. Both list more sub $80 dollar hotels than this book and are chock full of other useful information.
