Travelodge have some rooms on offer at 30.00, also, Premier Lodge (one of which is at the Anchor, Bankside) have some rooms for 22.00 until end of April.
The one at the County Hall
They all have websites.
Last week we were booked into Travelodge, Edinburgh for 2 nights (and it was only costing 5.00 per room per night - extra special offer). However, there was a power cut, so they had to transfer us to the nearby Premier Lodge. I must say that standard there was very high - really wide bed, proper Shower Gel/Shampoo/Handwash supplied (as in Dove, Lux), decent hairdryer in every room, etc. It was newly built, which always helps, but the decor in the room made the poor Travelodge look a bit shabby.
I like those types of places because you know what you're getting, and (surprisingly enough!), I like to get value for money.
(I expect you are all laughing at my idea of proper Shower Gel - you are probably used to Clinique or Creme de la Mer stuff...)
Of course the nearer you are to the centre of London the more expensive the places get, but you can get really good deals in areas which are still very accessible by Tube etc.
