Wimbledon

Hey guys! My sister and I are going to go to London during the first week of Wimbledon and I was wondering, to those of you who have been, what the best (but most affordable) hotel or hostel near the site is? Preferably hotels, but hostels are fine aswell.

I want to have my evil way with Tommy Robredo

Re: Wimbledon

Hey alelysafina! I go to Wimbledon every year and its pretty hard to find half decent accommodation that isnt way expensive! I stay in Wimbledon village every year because its so close to the tennis but unfortunately everywhere almost doubles their prices during the tennis (because they know tennis players can afford it!!) I've found a couple of pretty good places that charge only about £70stg a night, which is really reasonable compared to some others! I can PM you some phone numbers if you like. But you would need to book very soon as it is almost impossible to find a place close to the tennis at this stage! We booked last September!

Vamos RAFA, FELI y NANDO!!!!!!!

Re: Wimbledon

I'm afraid London just isn't cheap. And it becomes even less cheap for the 1st week of Wimbledon.

Your best bet is to go on a London Tourist Board website and check out Hotels in the areas nearby. Look for anywhere with a post code of SW19, or in the areas of Putney, Earl's Court or Fulham. I know there is a "TravelLodge" in Putney (2 stops on the tube away) - but although it normally has "special offer rooms" for about £50.00 per night which is really cheap for London, the price rises to over £100.00 during Wimbledon. It's hard for me to advise as I live nearby so never have to get accomodation, but I know there are quite a few places in Earl's Court which is about 10 minutes tube ride away (Wimby is about 10 minutes walk away from Southfields Station and trains run from 5.30am until after midnight). Good Luck anyway.

Rosie knows alot more on this than me, but the prices may be cheaper if you stay outside SW London. Ofcourse the journey to Wimbledon everyday would be that bit longer but nowadays you get pretty much anywhere in London by Tube, so it would cancel each other out.

Re: Wimbledon

Maybe it wuold be better to rent a car and stay at a Travellodge(inn) about 45 minutes outside of London. That would also give you a means of transport to see other parts of London and Essex =)

Re: Wimbledon

I didn't know you were going to Wimbledon!! I'll be there for the first day or so of qualifying so I'll probably just miss you. Anyways, you might be better off not staying super close to the grounds. London has plenty of public transportation that is very easy to understand and use.

Check here: www.hostels.com I'll be staying at a hostel myself for the week I'm there that is the week before you come... and I'll be staying at either this one: http://www.hostels.com/en/availabili...stelNumber.521 , this one http://www.hostels.com/en/availabili...stelNumber.517 or this one but most likely I will be at this one: http://www.hostels.com/en/availabili...stelNumber.523 That last one on Queensborough Terrace... not in the same area as Wimbledon at all, but I know the area well personally since that's the street my flat was on when I lived there, and it's in the middle of plenty of tube stops so there is easy transportation available. The ones on Inverness Terrace are in the same area, and they are a stone's throw away from the Bayswater tube stop which is on the District line which takes you right to Wimbledon. But search around the site. The last one, the Astor Quest on Queensborough Terrace is very nicely priced, so it's something to consider. If you decide to stay at anything in this area, you'd just need a weekly travelcard for zones 1-3 and that works on buses too and you'd be able to do any other sightseeing you wanted to in London with the travelcard for the Tube as well.

Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Wimbledon

Also, I was wondering how the tube is?? That's why I mainly asked for something near the site. I know it can take you practically anywhere, but is it hard to navigate through? will I get lost and go around London three times before I find my stop?

Because if it's fairly easy to navigate through, a hotel or hostel farther away would suffice.
