ACCOMMODATION:

If you plan to stay overnight in London there are plenty of mid and high-end options around Kensington.  Budget options are harder to find, but the following seem to offer best value:

HOTELS

Holiday Inn Kensington Forum

K Hotel Kensington

Ibis Styles London Gloucester Road

HOSTELS

For groups of students or those on a tight budget, these hostels offer dorm rooms and some limited single/double private rooms.  BOOK EARLY – they sell out fast.

Astor Hostels Hyde Park

Meininger Hotel Hyde Park

These are both within a 15 minute walk of the V&A and the after-party venue.  Slightly further afield but in a lovely setting is:

Safestay Holland Park

CONFERENCE ADD-ONS
