I've got a couple friends coming to visit in March for about a week and was wondering if anyone had any advice on where they could stay for a reasonable price. They were looking into renting a room in a flat or something if possible, close to me here in Brixton. Don't have room in my crap flateshare unfortunately.

I've looked on AirBNB (their search is being wonky right now though) and WhereToSleep but there's nothing around Brixton except for something on Electric Avenue and I believe they were already turned down for that as it was booked or something.

Anybody got ideas? Thanks!
Reasonable price means different things to different people. Giving a budget might be a bit more helpful ;)

I thought that building was all flats. I wonder what it's been converted from, to end up with 8 bedrooms.
Some of those flats are huge. I know a family who had been 'short-let' tenants for years for years before they were evicted so Lambeth could flog 'em off. I reckon maybe some rooms have been sub-divided.

Gimme gimme gimme, don't ask what for
Thanks very much for all of the recommendations. I'll try and update on where they went and how they liked it afterwards. I had no idea some of these places existed, like that My Place Inn!

crawl I discovered a while back that there's a place just around the corner from me which starts at £90 a night for two people. It's actually an entire flat which sleeps up to four people - good for a family or group of friends wanting to stay right near the middle of Brixton.

A friend looked in to staying said they were nice to deal with, and you have the marquis just round the corner!

Was talking to an American lass in the pub the other week. A friend of hers from the US came to stay in Peckham and thought the idea of the Marbella Hotel hilarious so went there to book a room. Apparently the owner/manager was pissed and when he asked about a double en suite room the owner/manager just said 'oh fuck off' and walked off :D

It does have a warm and Mediterranean look I think :cool:

I've also had a request from an old friend who is coming over for a few days with her 2 teenage sons (well 1 is 16 and the other 10 so the second counts as a child still I guess), so she is ideally looking for a 3 to a room cheapish hotel deal fairly easy access to transport to central london for museum visits and whatnots.

Nearish to Brixton the Travelodge at Vauxhall Station is now open complete with Waitrose Local on the ground floor - http://www.travelodge.co.uk/hotels/576/London-Vauxhall-hotel

Also the Belgrave Hotel on Clapham Road near to Oval tube station http://www.belgravehotel.net

and in summer vacations Kings College and Camberwell College student accommodation is usually available, generally cheaper than hotels but obviously not so luxurious.

I could have sworn I saw an alcohol licence notice in the name of Premier Inns on the pavement outside KFC recently. Can't see anything on the council site about it though.

The app is mentioned in the Safer lambeth presentation - http://effrablog.files.wordpress.com/2013/04/safer-lambeth-presentation-2013-04-2.pdf
Premier Inn, 457-461 Brixton road (upper floors) SW9 8HH, (Coldharbour ward)

Fairly sure its the same site as the proposed Holiday Inn - http://www.urban75.net/forums/threads/hefty-holiday-inn-coming-to-central-brixton.297101 : their 'brand advisers' or whatever they are called must have advised that Premier Inn is a better match for Brixton than Holiday Inn!

Thanks. I thought it might be the Holiday Inn site but Premier seems to be owned by Whitbread www.whitbread.co.uk/whitbread/ourbrands/premierinn.html And Holiday Inn have their own el cheapo brand, Holiday Inn Express.
