Where is the best place to stay in London? - London Hotel Reviews

We love visiting London, it is such a vibrant and interesting city. We often get asked ‘Where is the best place to stay in London’ so we have put this post together on our experiences.

It is always worth asking yourself why you are visiting London and picking an area that will be convenient for your stay. Getting round by tube is easy and picking a hotel that is close to a tube station makes life easier too. In this post we show you the hotels that we have stayed in so you can make an informed choice when booking yours.

Travel Lodge, Covent Garden, London

We stayed at the Travel Lodge on Drury Lane for 3 nights. It is in a fantastic location and cost us less than £100 per night. Here is our review.

Stow-Away Apart-Hotel, Waterloo, London

We stayed for 2 nights at the Stow-Away Apart-Hotel located on the South Bank in London. This is a new eco-friendly apart-hotel is made out of shipping containers. We stayed in a serviced studio apartment. Find out what we thought of Stow-Away and whether we would stay here again!

Holiday Inn Hotel, Camden Lock, London

We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Camden Lock for 3 nights, and must say it was the perfect find! Excellent location, comfortable room with superb views. Watch our video review here to find out why we think this is the ideal place to stay if you are visiting London.

Colliers Hotel, Pimlico

If your budget is tight then this could be an option for you! For less than £60 we spent a night here at the Colliers Hotel. It is very compact, but is in a great location, just a short walk from Victoria Bus Station. If you just need to get your head down for one night then this could be the hotel for you. Watch our video to see our room review of this hotel.

Sunborn Yacht Hotel, Docklands, London

If you need your cruising fix then the Sunborn Yacht Hotel in the Docklands, London is for you!

Great for a special treat as it is quite expensive, however, a great choice particularly if you are going to the O2 arena or the Excel Centre.

Arbor Hotel, East End of London

The Arbor City Hotel is a great London Hotel for exploring the east end. Minutes from Brick Lane, a tube station just around the corner and a short walk to London Bridge it really is a good base for exploring London.
