The short answer is that it depends on your destination in central London.

The StanEX is pricey, and if you're not going to stay near Liverpool Street it may not be of much use. Terravision coaches run from STN to Liverpool Street and to the Green Line bus station near Victoria so those services are a much cheaper option than the StEX. National Express run coaches as well with a few calling points in the city centre.

At what time of day does your flight arrive and at what hotel in central London have you booked?

Bit late now but unless you are flying from Inverness or so, you would probably have been better taking the train. Quicker city centre to city centre

If you look at the imaginatively named stanstedairport.com under "to and from Stansted" you'll find several suggestions - which is best / cheapest depends on where you are going in London. And £80 isn't that high when you consider that STN is 40 miles from London - roughly the same distance as Edinburgh to Glasgow

Luton airport is under 40 minutes by train from St Pancras - which is next door to Kings Cross

Gatwick, on weekdays, is 50 minutes by train from St Pancras. Most weekends you have to travel to either London Bridge or Victoria first by Tube to catch a train - so add 10-20 minutes to that time.

Stansted requires you first to travel by Tube to Tottenham Hale where you catch the Stansted Express to Stansted and takes about 70 minutes
