London is an extraordinary, vibrant city. It's a great place to visit and there's lots to see, do, and experience. It's even better when your hotel is part of that experience. If you know us, you'll know we want to get the whole London package, including staying in a memorable hotel.
Luckily, that's easy to do in London. In a world-class destination you're going to find hotels to match. And we don't just mean over-the-top expensive hotels. Some of our favourites strike a lovely balance between cost, comfort, and luxury. But one thing we don't do is sacrifice location. Come with us on a virtual tour of the 15 best hotels in London, selected for design, convenience, and top-grade guest reviews.
Let's start at the top, with some of the greatest places to stay in the city. London is exciting and it's busy, and we really appreciate luxurious comfort after an action-packed day out in the city.
We think you're going to love the luxury hotels that made our Top Five list. These are hotels that are perfectly located for your exploration of London, that have high staff-to-guest ratios to ensure the utmost in service, and that are designed and furnished for the ultimate in comfort.
Of course we love the experiences of 5-star luxury hotels, but some of our best accommodation finds are the 4-star hotels in London. You still get a good dose of luxe and service, but you may feel just a little bit better about your travel budget.
And, like the more luxurious, our selected hotels are located in the best parts of the city for visitors, close to the things you want to see. As with all hotels we recommend, these have high travelers ratings (over 90%) and lot of reviews.
You may feel that you'd like to spend a little less on accommodations, since you'll be out and about in the city most of the time anyway. In these cases we usually look for reliable hotels chains where you know what to expect. We call these hotels "contemporary budget" and think they're a great find… when we find them!
In this case, we've sussed out five 3-star hotels with good locations, clean modern rooms, and (perhaps surprisingly) very comfortable beds. We present hotels from two different chains plus one family-owned hotel in Westminster that guests rave about.
