Cheap hotels in London
Staying London needn’t cost the earth and while the city is thought by many, to be amongst the most costly places to book an hotel room, this isn’t necessarily true. You can pay a King’s ransom to stay at one the capital’s many 5 star luxury hotels, but if your trip is being run on a budget, then there is just as much accommodation at the economy end of the market, that are a high enough standard to not leave wishing you’d spent a little more.
Where to Start Looking
The easiest place to start for the discerning hotel bargain hunter is at one the big chains of budget hotels, like the Holiday Inn. You’ll get what it says on the tin, as they are widespread across the city and offer convenience, comfort and modern style. Lower cost shouldn’t mean lower standards of hygiene and appearance.
For example, the RE hotel in Shoreditch offers sleek and elegant rooms in the trendy East End of London and costs as little as £169 per night, as well as more significant savings when bookings are made well in advance.
If cost is a real issue and budgets are tight, then you may need to travel a little out of the centre to get the best possible deal. The price may drop further out of town, but the standards are just as high and the hotels are no less elegant. If you’re prepared to endure a very short tube ride then you can find that the cost drops significantly.
Economy With a Spanish Twist
To sample something a little different without breaking the bank, we recommend that you consider booking yourself into the Havana Lounge, to the South East of the centre of London. With high ceilings, oak blinds and colonial fans, this accommodation has the warm and welcoming ‘old wood’ feeling of old Spain. Offering all things latin, you will genuinely feel that you’ve somehow moved abroad.
Don’t take our word for it though, listen to the Guardian Newspaper’s travel writer, Dixe Wills, who voted it to be one of the top 10 best economy hotels in the capital.
So varied is the choice of accommodation in London that you shouldn’t have to look too far afield to find the perfect spot for you, whatever your tastes and requirements. In fact, in addition to the wealth of hotels you will find, you’ll also discover centrally located, purpose built apartments available to rent via the company Studios to Let. Situated in Bloomsbury, their offerings come with kitchen facilities, Free Wifi, Laundry and maid services and it shouldn’t cost to you an arm and a leg.
If you were to stay in the Earls Court area with Twenty Nevern Square Hotels, you will have easy access to the Exhibition Centre and those all important Tube station links. Convenience, elegance and a wonderful 4 star experience for a surprisingly low cost.
Venture towards Bayswater and you’ll come across the London House Hotel, which is wonderfully situated in the chic surroundings of Notting Hill and Kensington. The hotel itself is a grand affair, with pillars and marble steps, which completely belies its modest price. You’ll not find a classier economy venue in the whole city.
