When searching London flats for the perfect place to call home after an international relocation families often find themselves spending lots more money than necessary on a hotel room during the interim.  Instead of behaving like a tourist while finalizing the details of the move families moving to London from America should begin embracing the city life and acting as a Londoner.  One such way to do that is to take advantage of local inns and bed and breakfasts as a way to explore London neighborhoods and save money.  Below is a list of great family-friendly small inns to consider when making travel plans.

Windsor House – This small inn is conveniently located near the Earl’s Court underground station and is in close proximity to Kensington Gardens.  Rooms are available with one bed all the way to five beds with the family in mind.  Breakfast is included in the price as is tea.  Windsor House is locally owned and reviews are great.

Barry House Hotel – This lovely seventeen room inn is houses in a Victorian townhouse in near Hyde Park.  Newcomers couldn’t ask for a better location or service as all reviewers marvel at the hospitality the hotel provides.  Amenities include phone, Wi-Fi, television and copy/fax machine.

Telegraph Hill Bed and Breakfast – For those families seeking more than a hotel room can offer Telegraph Hill B&B, in southeast London, might just be the answer.  This family home offers an apartment with kitchen and all the amenities an American family expects to find in a lovely Victorian home.  Childcare is even offered for a fee.

Victoria Inn – If location is a top priority for the family Victoria Inn is the perfect place to stay when visiting here.  It is located in Central London only minutes from all the major tourist attractions and the city’s center.  The accommodations are modern yet the prices are economical making it an ideal location to stay for families finalizing their international relocation.

At Home Bed and Breakfast – Anyone wanting to get the inside scoop on the art scene needs to stay at At Home Bed and Breakfast where the hosts are artists and an art gallery is housed in the same building.  This Edwardian villa is a tranquil escape from the nitty-gritty of the streets and offers a peaceful oasis in which to relax while wrapping up moving plans and searching London flats.
