Conference on the Representation Theory of p-adic groups
Many conference guests and speakers will be staying at:
Bedford Hotel, Southampton Row, London WC1B 4HD.
(Tel: + 44 (0) 20 7636 7822)
It is approximately 10-15 minutes' walk from King's College.
Single rooms are £72.
The most convenient hotel to stay at (just 2-3 minutes' walk from
King's) is probably
The Strand Palace Hotel,
372 Strand, London WC2R 0JJ. (Tel: +44(0)20 7584 6454)
If you call and mention King's College then a standard single room will be
£88, though there may be limited availability; a club single
room will be £108. You may be able to get the same room cheaper
by using a cheap hotels website.
Other possible hotels are the following (the rates given in brackets
are the King's discounted rates - mention King's when you book - but,
as above, you may find cheaper by booking online):
Club, 23 Mecklenburgh Square, London WC1N 2AD
(Tel: +44(0)20 7837 8831). A 15-20 minute walk from
King's (single £90, double £125).
Mad Hatter Hotel, 3-7 Stamford Street, London SE1&nbp;9NY
(Tel: +44(0)20 7401 9222). Just across Waterloo Bridge - about 15
minutes' walk (single £99.50).
Cresent Hotel, 49-50 Cartwright Gardens, London WC1H 9EL
(Tel: +44(0)20 7387 1515). About 20 minutes' walk (single £72.90).
Hotels, who are the parent company of the Bedford Hotel (above),
have a number of other hotels in the area also (including
some which are cheaper but with shared facilities). They are all
10-25 minutes' walk from King's.
For French participants, one possibility was the
Maison de l'Institut de France à Londres,
but they have no more rooms for the 5,6,7 June (there were still some
for 8 June last time I asked). The
easiest access from there to King's is by the
of the underground, direct from South Kensington to Temple.
