Visiting London, places to stay?

Hoping to find some forumites who either make a habit out of traveling to London or who live there and can offer some advice. :)

I'm going to be in London for about a week this fall with my wife and am at a bit of a loss as to where to stay. I don't really know the neighborhoods and searching for information online has me convinced that there are actually no living people in London, as every hotel is full of rats and bedbugs and the streets are lined with football hooligans and pickpockets. Also zombies, but that's just from watching too many movies.

This is why I probably shouldn't try to gather information by reading travel review sites.

So, on the off chance that there actually are people in London and that your day does not consist of being robbed/beaten up/devoured for brains, can anyone point me at good regions to stay in that won't cost us 150 pounds a night?

    Right, well, I live here so I guess I can help a little. In terms of tourist-suitable areas that won't get you stabbed but are near enough to the centre so you can actually see some stuff, I would say anywhere in west Zone 1 or 2

    Personally if I was visiting I would try places in South Kensington / around there. Try to avoid going south of the river as transport will drive you mad.

    The further East you get from Tottenham Court Road the worse it gets, and North London is just quite ugly.
