Where to Stay in London

Accommodation in London can be quite pricey and finding an affordable hotel in the city center can sometimes be challenging. In this article, we help you find the best deals, and discover the best areas to stay in London.

Great Britain is famous for its Bed and Breakfast hotels, and London is no exception. These are the most common types of accommodations you’ll find in the city. Bed and Breakfasts are normally run by families who rent out rooms in their house and also offer breakfast every morning.

Best places to stay in London

London is very big, and its top attractions are spread throughout the city. For this reason, regardless of where you stay, you’ll have to use public transport to get to the different landmarks. Even so, the best option is to choose a hotel, apartment, hostel, or B&B (Bed and Breakfast) in Zone 1 or 2.

Our favorite area to stay is found between Hyde Park and St. Paul’s Cathedral, north of the River Thames. More specifically, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, and Covent Garden are areas well connected and lively, with lots of restaurants and things to see and do. 

If you arrive in London without having previously booked accommodation, the best area to head to is Victoria Station, where you’ll find a great number of Bed & Breakfasts.
