    Realistically, prices are going to be very much the same wherever you decide. Either area is safe enough. However, hotels in London are not cheap. f you are on a tight budget, you may wish to look at hostels (of which there are plenty) instead. If you tell us what sort of budget you are looking at, we will hopefully be able to point you in the right direction.

    Hope this assists,

    fergy.

    Hi! I tend to check out Booking.com or Venere.com when I'm looking for accommodation anywhere - you can often pick up a bargain, can cancel upto 48 hours prior to arrival if you find a better bargain, can chose by map, price range, reviews etc.If You are certain of dates etc paying up front/ non refundable often offers even better prices.
    As a solo female traveller I tend to look for accomm within 5 minutes of walking from an Underground station.
    Room only is often a better option ( unless reviews praise the breakfasts) there will no doubt be many places near accomm to grab a breakfast and places to eat later in the day - cafes/ restaurants or supermarkets to DIY.

    We have stayed twice at the Blandford Hotel which is a 5 minute walk from the Baker Street tube stop. It is a small, family run hotel which has been renovated in recent years, has a nice breakfast, clean rooms and runs about 120 GBP. Their website is: capricornhotels.co.uk/hotel_...

    Baker Street in my opinion - you can relax in Regents Park which is close and one of Londons nicest parks. However either area is fine.

    Check the Premier Inn chain, there is one near Victoria. You might also have a look at Ibis or for a very basic room there is also Travelodge. Booking.com is a good way to help narrow down your search but always check the hotel's website, I found that there are frequently lower prices if you are willing to do an advance purchase non refundable rate.

    Either area is fine

    Baker Street is great. I stayed at the Park Plaza there, which is a good place for the money.

    There's a Travelodge next to Marylebone Station, just a few minutes walk from Marylebone. I've stayed there a couple of times when I needed to stay over in London for work. As usual with Travelodge, it's no frills, but it's in a handy location, and good value for London. Don't go for the breakfast option though - there are plenty of better alternatives nearby.

    Sally makes a good point. Unless breakfast is included in your deal, don't go for it. Hotel breakfasts are well-overprivced and normally pretty average as they tend to be of the buffet variety and the food may have been sitting there for literally hours. You can easily find better places near whyerever you are staying and get a freshly cooked breakfast much cheaper.

    Hope this assists,

    fergy.

    Weatherspoons offer a good breakfast, as do many independent cafes.

    If you are really watching your budget you might try Cherry Court Hotel on Hugh st. Very near Victoria and very small rooms but clean. As a single woman I would stay there. Last I checked it was around £65 per night, seems pretty good for London.
