London, England Lodging Bargain

In 2017, my friend Erin passed on this great idea for a London, England visit:
I thought I’d pass on bargain that my family found for out trip to London last summer (late August). We used the British Airways air & lodging combo deal and I wanted a place with a kitchen. The Dolphin House hotel/serviced apartments was the only one with the kitchen, so we took it. Turns out that he place is really a large apartment complex a bit more luxurious than we needed but the BA combo price was cheaper than all others. It is a big rectangle with a 3.5 acre park in the middle.

The BA deal also includes daily breakfasts at an on-site restaurant (if we just got the studio apt, two of us would have paid $1418.50 each for the flight & the 7 nights lodging). We had to get a larger unit (2 BR/2 BA) when other people joined the trip which added another $1,240.00 which we spread amongst us.

It is in a great residential location as well (the Pimlico / Westminster neighborhood) with quiet streets but bus & metro stops a short walk away.

The hotel is just a small portion of the Dolphin Square apartment complex with full-time residents.

We met a retired American couple at the hotel the very first day we got there. They had been there for almost a month.

An option for families & people who don’t want the London hustle & bustle outside their windows 24 hours a day.
