Here's a direct link to the offer page ]http//ww…php

I guess it's just a free-for-all at noon on the 13th... :pirate:

I tried this when they last did the offer, their servers couldnt handle the huge amount of people trying to get on. the £1 rooms sold out in like 7 mins or something stupid

Guess that's why the OP said "hope some of you will get a room" (didn't hold any hope for himself) and why they have a 'how to book quickly' guide on the link I posted.

I've twice managed to get £1 rooms on this deal so it definitely is possible.

Last time was the worst I've ever seen it though. Never got past the first screen which I've always managed to before. Worth a try.

It was super crazy coz it was around valentines i seem to remember

Never managed to get a room... the site ALWAYS crashes

is this offer purely for weekdays?

whats the best tactic to get a room? try a little earlier than 12? have several tabs open with several dates pre entered and primed?

Any day of the week, as I recall. I was successful once, in the early days, getting one night for £1, but it's now well nigh impossible to get onto the website. Gave it up some time ago as a complete waste of time. There's no useful tactic that I'm aware of.

Unless, of course, someone know better..................;-)

Ohh love to get one of these £1 rooms but even their standard rates arent that bad for London.

Yes i agree with what you said there. I also got a room once ( wednesday i believe ) but weekends are definately available but most people of course want Saturday so it's nigh on impossible especially now so many people know about it & will have fingers poised tomorrow. Good luck to all hukd people :thumbsup:

Surprised this isn't getting more heat today!

Wombat 6025, is there any chance you could post the 'how to' guide please. I can't find your post.

Thanx

Probably because it's such a pointless waste of time trying to get into a website that's crashed within seconds. ;-)

Just done a dummy run and the 'make reservation is at the bottom after you have entered all the detaisl in. Does this mean returning customers can get them first as they won't need to enter all the details.

Site is down already :x

You could be right. As they no need to fill up the details and just click and it saves time.

yes, seems these are going faster and faster each time...i finished my booking around 12:01:-D

one pound rate is sold.. yeah it was a dummy run due to the registration you have to make! lucky if you got one, but I doubt it.. I was verrrryyy quick.. (my reservation was sent around 12:00:20), no room for me

edit apparently it was a mistake to try to get a Saturday night ..

unbelievable....GBP 1 room sold out less than 1 minute. Can you believe??

Yes I can, last time they had something like 250,000 people trying to get 250 rooms or something similar. It's a quick process if it goes through, have gotten this deal twice out of the 4 times I have tried.

Yep, I entered within the first 2 seconds but it crashed, tried again and again to refresh but by the time the calender page could load up none were left. 2minutes later!

i didnt even get the calender screen up...

not even close!

I got one for £1 on a thursday night, i had already booked in the wesminster bridge park plaza through travelzoo on the friday and saturday so im happy.

I got a £1 room on a Saturday night in Aug and a £29 room on a Saturday night in Aug :thumbsup:

Website seemed to run smoother this time

First time on the site and I got a room for £1 on 22 June as well as a £2 return national express fun fare, well pleased :-)

Missus laughed out loud when she saw me take this!

But seriously, it was a very comfortable stay and I was impressed with the added perks of free internet, freeview, wide selection of music, free international calls, complimentary tea, coffee, fresh milk, mineral water and a light breakfast in the morning. Just a shame that it's a little of the way from the centre of London.
