Accommodations in London significantly vary in price and prices do not always reflect the quality. At the lower end of the price scale, you will find plenty of hostels and small rooming houses with minimal services and amenities, while at the high end you'll find some of the most luxurious 5-star hotels anywhere. If you are travelling from America you should lower your room size expectation, as European properties tend to have smaller rooms than what is common in North America.
