London hotel recommendations needed

I need a few days away to kick back, write a lot and see something different. I prefer to stay in central London, close to museums, proper coffee and great Indian food. Since I wasn't born with a gold spoon up my arse, the price has to be fair. Any recommendations?
  1. If you are going soon, the university residences probably still rent rooms by the night during their off season. Try Commonwealth Hall or google U of London residence.

  2. Check out Palmer's Lodge!
    It's been a decade since I stayed there but I really loved it!
