Recently, Alex Robertson Textor, our awesome editor emeritus and current writer-at-large, spent a few months in London and reviewed a host of new hotels for EuroCheapo while updating existing hotel reviews. In addition, he scoped out and tested cheap eats (bacon anyone?), budget tips, and lots more.

Positively brilliant!

If you haven’t already, might we suggest his “Insider Info” interview as a starting-off point?  It’s chock full of fun facts and anecdotes. Next, move on to his newly updated “Budget Tips” article, and then browse listings of more than 70 budget hotels, from hostels to B&Bs, and more unique sleeps.

Alex even added new neighborhoods citing the fact that London is so expansive, but easily accessed by public transport. This London guide offers new locales like “The City” and “Southwark/Bankside” among others. For help in choosing the right neighborhood, Alex lends helpful advice here.

Shout out!

And, as many of you dear Cheapos know, Alex also pens his own blog, “Spendthrift Shoestring.” Follow his travels here. In addition, he writes regularly for the New York Post blog. Check his latest dispatch out here.
