A 22-room boutique hotel in north London, charging £18 ($29) a night for artists, has opened its doors to guests.
Green Rooms received special funding from the Mayo of London.

The Mayo of London, he’s a Hell(of a )mann…
And who egged you on to make that yolk? It will take awhile to ketchup with you…but I relish the opportunity.
I’m rolling on the floor laughing.
Ha. I was thinking “I didn’t know London had a Mayo Clinic? Why would they be funding a hotel for artists?” “Typo” is a much simpler explanation.
BTW, for anyone west of the Mississippi (or east of the Atlantic): Hellmann’s is a popular brand of mayonnaise in the eastern half of the US. That’s why this is funny.
*correction: Hellman, with one N.
Your first spelling is correct, Hellmann with two Ns (I learned that when a visiting American asked for stores selling American foods and preferred paying more nearly €9 for a small jar of Hellmann’s mayonnaise than consuming the German brands).
Oh, I guess you’re right: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/81b4ORO%2BTAL._SL1500_.jpg

Have a look at the photos of the inside of the hotel.

Great news. London accomodation is terrible unless you pay at least double what you would pay for a similar room in Berlin or Vienna.
Even in Nice, I think I can find quite OK ones, paying much less than in London.
Well, I don’t know how the prices are now, but I was able to find, before.
Paris and Rome were heavens in comparison to London.
My French friend then said that Paris prices were nearly half than in London.
Not half, but I think 60-70%?
Even Scandinavian people said that accomodation and London prices were too expensive.
I was quite frustrated when I went to Milan.
Usually, things are much cheaper in Italy, but in Milan, it seemed that everything was 150% of Rome’s.
Some things were quite similar to London, but others were still cheaper.
The £18 price is for a bed in a dormitory (mixed) which sleeps 16 people! The cheapest single room available is £54. Still cheap, but for ‘artists’ looking for a peaceful nights sleep, the dormitory is not a great option.
Jonathon Higgins, thank you, good to know.
The thoughts of sleeping 16 strange people to a dormitory … luckily I can stay with friends for five nights at a time. And no mayo involved either!!!
The mayo is provided to oil social exchanges.
KY works a lot better for those activities.
For anybody looking for rather cheap but excellent accomodation in Berlin: Hotel Sachsenhof in the Motzstrasse. Close to the tube station and a quiet, decent room for 60 – 70 EU a night.
Do you have to audition for a room?
