I'm writing to inform you about the places I've found for us to stay in England.
The first one is The Lion Hotel. I think there are some positives and some negatives about it. It's situated in the city centre and it's popular with visitors from overseas. All the rooms have private facilities and it's quite convenient for us. But staying in this central hotel for a week costs £150 per person. I think it's too expensive for us and we should consider alternatives.
The second option is a room in a family house. I'm sure it's a good way to meet people. There are two single rooms where we can live and feel comfortable. Moreover, breakfast and evening meal are provided, so we won't need to cook for ourselves like we would have to do in a student flat which I'll mention later. The price is okay, I think - £350 per person per month including heating and laundry. I suppose we can afford it, but we don't know anything about the landlady; perhaps she'll be strict.
The third option is student accomodation - a flat which includes a living room, a kitchen where we'll have to cook for ourselves as I said before, a bathroom and a bedroom. It's located not far from the city centre, approximately 3 kms, but compared to The Lion Hotel that's quite a long way away. To rent this flat, we would have to pay £250 per month. It's cheap enough. However, we'll have to do the cleaning ourselves and it's not convenient.
To sum up, I like the second option best of all. But I'm not sure about it; I need your input.
Please read this information and let me know what you prefer. Then we can decide where to stay.
