Default London Hotels

Hi folks

Can anyone recommend a resonably priced hotel around Holborn / Bloomsbury area for a businesss trip, so nothing too flashy required. Someone has told me that prices now range from outrageous to downright ridiculous!

I have not been to London for a few years so a bit out of touch with rates.

Cheers

doesn't your company have a travel agent...i usually find they can get better rates. Or try expedia.co.uk, as they normally have some good deal too...
