Why Book London Hotels

London offers an exhaustive selection of properties from luxury hotels in London, through the mid-price chains, to the burgeoning boutique style hotel offering privacy and personal attention. The bad news is that bargains are hard to find, and prices tend to be high even when compared to other European capitals. That is where is here to help source for you great deals on hotels in London.

Your first decision should concern the area you wish to stay in as it goes a long way to determining how much you'll pay for your accommodation. The West End - comprising Soho, Covent Garden, St James's, Mayfair and Marylebone, and the western suburbs of Knightsbridge and Kensington - is dominated by expensive, upmarket hotels.


The Sheraton Belgravia , located close to Knightsbridge and only a short walk away from the West End theatres is a good option, providing traditional English style rooms, with large bathrooms. A little further west but still within easy reach of attractions is the Royal Garden situated in fashionable Kensington. Rooms are spacious, elegantly furnished and many have great views over Kensington Gardens.

Alternatively to the West End, around Bloomsbury and Russell Square you'll find plenty of Edwardian-style hotels that are extremely handy for the main northern stations of Euston and Kings Cross, and tourist attractions such as the British Museum and British Library. The Grange Holborn is a good example of a five-star hotel located in this vicinity - one of the most fashionable areas in London.

If on a budget be warned, near to King's Cross hotels may be conveniently situated for train travel and appear good value, but quality can be poor and the area isn't always the most pleasant. Still, very good mid-range hotels are available throughout the rest of the city, and often represent excellent value. If you're really looking for something more affordable the main train terminals of Victoria and Paddington, and the Earl's Court area have an abundance of cheaper hotels that don't have quite the same edge on them as their King's Cross equivalents. The Crown near to Paddington is well situated for those arriving in the city from the west, or for those planning to head out to explore England's West Country.

We can recommend several hotels in various areas of London suitable for all types of budgets.
