We Uncover The 5 Top 4-Star Hotels In London England

We like to think of 4-star hotels as a luxury compromise. You get a solid dose of the luxury and comfort and service of a 5-star hotel, at a cost that's sometimes not much more than a nearby 3-star hotel. You feel like you've treated yourself extra special, yet your wallet still weighs heavy in your pocket.

But, we're never going to compromise on location or on the level of comfort we want you to have while you're in London. The hotels on this list represent visitor contentment mixed with a nice dollop of coziness and high praise from previous guests. Here's what we looked for in this slate of hotels in London England —

  • In the heart of London, in amongst the things you want to see.
  • In travelers' favourite parts of the city as well, with a location rating of at least 90%.
  • Traveler approval rating of over 90%, with at least 700 reviews — some of these hotels have one thousand, two thousand, three thousand reviews.
  • 4 Star designation.
  • Free WIFI.

Are you ready? Let's pop the hotel genie out of the bottle and let him present the top 4-star hotels in London England —

The Nadler Victoria

The Nadler Victoria

The hotel's address being on "Palace Place" should give you a clue that The Nadler is close to Buckingham Palace and, hence, close to all the things you want to see and do in central London. It takes only about 5 minutes to walk to the palace, and Victoria Station is 7 or 8 minutes in the other direction.

We like the soothing decor at the Nadler, using warm umber tones with white. Everything is designed to make you feel peaceful and comfortable after a busy day out in London. We also like the Nespresso machines and free coffee in every rome. By the way, the staff is rated 97% by guests. No wonder you feel comfortable.

Central London secret gem (but not for long). Love this place. I was here on day one when it opened and have stayed a few times since. The staff are fab, the rooms are fab and new, the shower is hot and full of pressure, the towels are fluffy, it's 1 minute from Buckingham Palace, 5 minutes from the Tube. It's almost perfect."

Apex Temple Court Hotel

Apex Temple Court Hotel

You're right in the centre of things, in the City of London, the legal and financial centre of England, surrounded by the attractions of this marvellous city, yet your hotel sits in a quiet courtyard offering peach and serenity, and even an outdoor patio.

"The room was fantastic with a great view of the London Eye and Big Ben," a guest writes. We like the clean, bright, modern lines of the design, the service, and especially the rooms with the small terraces.

Great hotel in Fleet Street, the Tube is 5 minutes away, and bus stops right outside. Staff always had time for us and when they printed out tickets for the Tower of London for us gave us great advice to visit the Crown Jewels straight away as the queues build up later. This proved to be the case."

The Montague On The Gardens

The Montague On The Gardens

Imagine living in Bloomsbury, in an elegant townhouse, with the British Museum as your neighbor. There's a uniformed doorman on duty, a classic British bistro next door, you're on a very quiet street, yet you're in the heart of London. You're residing at the Montague On The Gardens.

There are gardens in every direction you walk — Russell Square, Bloomsbury Square, Bedford Square. If you're heading off (or coming in) on the Eurostar, St Pancras station is nearby. Inside the hotel is classic British chintz and luxury, with rich fabrics and comfortable furnishings. On top of all that, there's an outdoor Beach Bar in the summer months, complete with sand!

The Hoxton, Holborn

The Hoxton, Holborn

Remember how we were talking about location? The Hoxton is up there with the best of them. You're in the city centre with easy walks to the British Museum and the opera house, and the Holburn Tube Station is literally a 2-minute walk away. The area is filled with those famous museum (The British being one) and has a vibrant bar and restaurant scene. By the way, it's where Chalres Dickens lived.

Feeling like a cool hangout, the Hoxton Holborn has only been open for two years, so everything is still fresh and bright. It's definitely a hip place, and the Hoxton pulls it off nicely. You get free WIFI and international calls and can choose from four sizes of rooms to suit your space needs and your budget.

A refreshing change to the normal hotel. Room was great, comfy bed and well-thought-out layout. Loved the design and detail everywhere. Really nice chilled out lobby area with lots of comfortable sofas and chairs to relax. Food and drink was very good as well. Would loved to have stayed longer"

Amba Hotel Charing Cross

Amba Hotel Charing Cross

You're near to the Thames and very close to Charing Cross Station, which gets you anywhere you want to go. You're also virtually next door to Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, the Mall, St James Park and Buckingham Palace beyond that. Want to ride on the London Eye? It's directly across the river.

The Amba Hotel building is magnificently cool. Rooms are comfortable, nicely appointed in that hotel style, and a bit more spacious than we would have expected in this prime central London location. In fact, travelers rate the location at 98%. Doesn't get much better than that! Public spaces in the hotel are very good.
