London Hotel Accommodation


London has hundreds of options for accommodations-- from 4 star hotels, through apartments, to historic B&Bs and hostel beds. You can end up paying anything from 20-200 per person, per night, with most hotels anywhere near the centre charging 50 per person and up. Expect smaller than average rooms, especially at the lower end of the price range. Your budget will have a lot to do with what part of London you will want to stay in. With the excellent Tube available, where you stay won't limit what you see, but be sure to check where the closest tube station is to your hotel. Staying further out will be cheaper, but when travelling in allow 1-2 minutes per tube stop (near the centre), around 2-3 minutes per stop (further out), and 5 minutes per line change. This can easily total up to a 1 hour journey if there is a walk at each end. The extra cost of more zones on a travel card is probably not significant compared to hotel savings further out.

Some nice, convenient areas to stay in London include:

  • Bloomsbury -- relatively quiet area with a wide range of accommodations. Many budget options are located on Argyle St. Note that it can get a little seedy towards and beyond King's Cross station. Cartwright Gardens features a dozen small B&Bs in historic homes

  • Kensington -- The Earl's Court area of Kensington has many budget and modest accommodations, and some good restaurants as well

  • Westminster.

In an emergency, should you get stranded in London without anywhere to stay, call the Shelter 24-hour helpline on 0808 800 4444 (Shelter is a UK national charity that provides advice on housing and homelessness).
