London has EXPENSIVE hotels, but Alison House is about as cheap as you can get. Double rooms are 56 pounds with the bathroom in the hall, 65 with a bathroom in the room. There are two showers and three toilets for about rooms, so that's not a bad sharing ratio. The rooms aren't fancy but perfectly reasonable, with a sink in each room, a built-in hair dryer, and a small TV with regular broadcast channels.
The location is good, near Buckingham Palace, Victoria Station, and the bus station. A pub and a fish-and-chips place are right around the corner. The street is actually well-known as home to celebrities (Maggie Thatcher lives one block over, Mozart composed his first symphony on the street), plus, we saw a Ferrari and a Bentley parked on the street while we were there.
The full English breakfast is good, and the owner's dog is fun and friendly.
