Cheap London hotels can be found around the city if you simply know where to look. With some preliminary research and smart advanced booking you can secure very good rates at inexpensive London hotels. Many people who visit this thriving metropolis do not plan to spend too much time confined to the hotel anyway, so clean, comfortable, and centrally located inexpensive London hotels are the perfect option.
One option is the Tavistock Hotel (pictured) located in Bloomsbury. This is one of the most inviting parts of town for people who are interested in literature and the arts. There is a variety of amazing book stores and the British Museum is about a five-minute walk from the entrance of the hotel. The accommodations are small (many of the cheapest rooms simply have a single bed), but they are comfortable and the bathrooms feature large tubs. Complimentary breakfast is served in the hotel’s lobby every morning, which includes a classic English breakfast of eggs, ham, beans, stewed tomatoes, and toast. The Tavistock Hotel is a great option for cheap London hotels. Be sure to head over to Russell Square Gardens for a cup of tea or coffee in the park before starting your day of sightseeing.
At the Umi London and the Sanctuary House Hotel, you can find consistently competitive prices. If you are looking for very cheap London accommodations you will be best served to look into London hostels like the Generator or St Christopher's Inn. These accommodations allow you to spend far less but require communal living spaces, bathrooms, and eating areas. These can be the perfect accommodations for students or backpackers just traveling through for a few days.
The Huttons Hotel, located on Belgrave Road just a few minutes from Victoria Station is another fine option. This beautiful Georgian building is centrally located near many popular attractions and features complimentary breakfast and wireless internet, airport shuttle, and concierge services.
The Premier Inn is the largest hotel chain in the UK and offers almost twenty discounted London hotels. The prices are downright cheap at this chain that also makes a guarantee that if you do not get a good night sleep, you will get your money back. Other cheap London hotels include the Travelodge and the family-run Ridgemount Hotel in Bloomsbury.
You definitely do not have to sacrifice much when you choose from discounted London hotels. Of course the city is home to many of the most luxurious hotels in western Europe as well, but there are many places that are in cool parts of town and even have their own charming and distinctive appeal. Even though many of the travel guides and websites calculate the average price for a hotel in London to be around $200, these numbers come from aggregating the pricing information from a whole host of accommodations including those on the extreme high end. You should not necessarily expect inexpensive London hotels to be too far below this threshold, but you can find consistently lower rates. With just a little bit of research and advance planning you are sure to find the perfect discounted London hotels for you.
