It really depends on where in London it is. Like, a hotel in the city centre will cost upwards of 90 GBP a night. It really depends on what you like. A proper hotel in London can cost over 200 pounds, but there's a lot of variation and it depends on when and where. I wouldn't shell out that much, I'd prefer a "budget hotel" which are perfectly fine in London (just avoid Feltham, Peckham and Tower Hamlets - my opinion ofc)
Being cheaper, I'd personally settle for a Premier Inn (Large UK hotel chain, dotted around London, near Tube stations - will cost 60 GBP+ a night) - Comfy, safe, helpful, cheap and reliable. You don't need to shell out on the Ritz to enjoy London. Just get on the Tube and adventure!
As for food, it also depends. You can go to a fast food joint and spend under 9 quid, or you can go to a Michelin started restaurant and spend 900 quid.
Getting around is pretty good too.
From what I know, London is as expensive as you make it.
(Have to disagree with Johan, I think Sweden is much more expensive
but worth it )
