Is there anywhere where you can BID on rooms anymore?

One of the saddest things that the pandemic has wrought (at least for me) is the disappearance of the name your own price option on Priceline. I regularly found 3* and 4* hotels for as low as $75-100 per night. Sometimes they were a little far-flung (Docklands, Maida Vale, Greenwich) but they were always on a Tube or DLR line or a bus route into Central London and they were almost all terrifically clean and spacious, sometimes with amazing views (the Holiday Inn near Gloucester Road, the Marriott at Canary Wharf).

Maybe I am part of the problem since I began using Airbnb because I was staying for a week or a month and it seemed more practical to have a kitchen and a separate bedroom, but the name your own price bidding system seems gone. (Airbnb's site now seems geared for luxury travellers looking for an architectural curiosity or design gem rather than a clean and comfortable place to lay your head after a day at the theatre.)

Does anyone else do it?
