    A bit more for Manchester, but I've just found one to City airport, and return from Heathrow for £120.
    Heathrow to Canary Wharf on a Monday morning? Feck that.

    There's an Ibis there. Anything cheaper is likely to be pretty (very) crappy. I'd stop in the Ibis until I'd reseacrhed and found a better deal. It's around £120 a night.

    Cheers, the Ibis was going to the one I tried first, my first time in Paris, so trying the sh1t will be an interesting experience!

    My worst hotel experience ever was in Paris (2006 Champions League final). We booked several rooms in a fairly decent looking hotel, and turned up on the day to find they had re-booked us into something resembling the sort of place you'd only want to stay the night in if you had just arrived on an illegal boat from Libya. All of us refused to pay the bill, since all but one of our "rooms" didn't even have a lock on the door. The funniest part was when when the hotel owner called the plods, expecting us to do a runner, and we just waited there. The plods turned up, took one look at what we were being asked to pay 300 Euros each for, and gave the owner a bollocking for wasting their time.
    By comparison, the IBIS at Orly airport the night before was a very pleasant experience.
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...
