Expert reviews of cheap hotels in London
The best budget hotels in London... inspected and approved.
A well-run hotel with low nightly rates and decent, friendly owners is a gold mine for budget travelers. The 35-room Celtic Hotel is one such star of a hotel.
The Luna & Simone is a splurge-worthy gem, offering reliable three-star rooms, a superb location and some of the firendliest service you'll find in London town.
The YHA Oxford Street, perhaps the most central of several YHA hostels in London, is so plain that it almost defies description. The set-up will be familiar to anyone who has spent any time in a hostel.
One quickly senses that Arran House Hotel is a special place. Indeed, it is one of our favorites among the Gower Street guesthouse cluster.
One of a number of Astor Hostels in London, the 100-bed Astor Museum Hostel has one of the best locations we can imagine.
The Caring Hotel is a friendly, no-frills affair—a pleasant, inexpensive option among some of the fancier, pricier hotels near Hyde Park.
The name of the hotel, Arosfa, means “a place to stay” in Welsh. We might suggest that another Welsh word, one meaning “gorgeous and lovely place good for value-hungry visitors” be applied as a replacement.
