Arran House Hotel, London

For years one of our favorite small hotels in London, the Arran House these days is quite a bit less charming. However, its location is still a winner.

The 100-bed Astor Museum Hostel has one of the most convenient locations of any of our hostels, situated right across the street from the British Museum.

Caring Hotel, London

The Caring Hotel is a friendly, no-frills affair—a pleasant, inexpensive option among some of the fancier, pricier hotels near Hyde Park.

Editor's Pick
Arosfa Hotel, London

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.

George Hotel, London

Yet another beautiful bed-and-breakfast along Cartwright Gardens, the budget-friendly George Hotel is in a quiet area less than a 10-minute walk from the British Museum.
