Located in South Kensington, just next to the metro, this hotel in a beautiful Victorian building is a splendid alternative place to stay in London. A few minutes by tube from the vast majority of the city's tourist attractions, the rooms, breakfast and service are all spot-on. Strongly recommended, especially considering how hard it is to find a good, affordable hotel in London.
Hi everyone! After seeing the location of various Easyhoteles in London, I opted for the one near Victoria Station and I think it was a great choice in terms of neighborhood and ease of transportation. It is 5 minutes walk from Victoria Station and 20-25 from Big Ben. It's a quiet and safe neighborhood (near many embassies) and there are several restaurants and a Sainsburys (grocery store) on a nearby street. My friend and I chose the "standard room with window" for a price of 185 pounds (at that time). The room is adequate if you are going there to sleep and bathe. The bed was as big as I expected and everything seemed clean. The bathroom is a bit tight, but good enough. Regarding the soundproofing of the room, I have to say that we never heard outrageous noise or voices, something which is crucial to get good rest. After the youth hostels, it is of the cheaper options you can find in downtown London and as long as you go prepared, so I recommend it. Clients: Young couples, friends travelling, and backpackers of various nationalities. Other accommodations where I've been: Nh Harrington Hall, Grosvenor Kensington Hotel, Bryanston Court Hotel, Picadilly Backpaper Hostel.
It is not the best choice to stay in London in regard to value. The only good thing about this hotel would be its location, but it is not enough to see with different eyes. I spent a couple of nights in late July for work, but that's no reason for the service to not be good. The three stars of London are like they are here in Spain. Everything was very old and the cleanliness of the rooms left a lot to be desired. The rooms were quite simple, with just enough space to sleep and little else. I heard a couple complain that they had bugs in their room. Luckily mine was not invaded. Everything, absolutely everything, that had carpet was dirty. In addition, there was a small amount of food with very little variety (advertised as a continental breakfast). The price is another drawback. Between 80 and 120 pounds, one should pass for the quality they offer.
It is located in Bloomsbury, near the British Museum and Regent Park. Very close to the metro station is Russell Square. If you walk a little more, you will be in Soho, Chinatown, Times Square, Piccadilly. As I said, it's the only good thing. And if it was solely to sleep, it would be fine, but the price ... Alongside all this, the hotel is huge and there are thousands and thousands of people everywhere, complaining. And, despite this, the service is very poor and it seems as if they had given up and only have half the staff required. ((Sorry about the quality of the photos, they are mobile because I did not bring a camera, but I think they help a little to see how the place is)) There are other facilities like a swimming pool, gym and bowling alley nearby. They have special prices, which are affordable for customers.

The Mad Hatter pub is a Southwark on Stamford Street, it's a nineteenth-century industrial building and a nice place to have a drink after visiting Tower Bridge and the Tate Modern, which are 5 minutes away on foot. The Mad Hatter is part of the Fullers, who turned it into a 30 room hotel with antique décor of the last century. You are in the neighborhood of Shakespeare, Dickens that was long neglected but became fashionable 20 years ago. The room rates start at 100 pounds if you stay 3 nights, including breakfast. It's a great location, many buses passing by, the restaurant menu is cheap (meals don't exceed 20 pounds/person).
Possibly a typical English hotel, with carpeting and typical English food. located in the heart of london a few meters from the British Museum, it is ideal for those wishing to get away for 2 or 3 days to the city, the Metro stop "Russell Square" is practically a minute away, essential for getting around london
It is one of the most popular hostels in London because the prices are good and it has what is perhaps the cheapest bar in town. It is a mega hostel with 800 beds with a starting price of 15 pounds (18 €) which includes a buffet breakfast. They make their money mainly from the pub / restaurant, where your can have breakfast, lunch, and dinner a la carte. It's pretty loud, so I'd suggest using ear plugs for those who are not very nocturnal.
An excellent hotel. The four nights we were here, were splendid. The room had a small flat screen TV, a fridge for drinks and a safe to store valuables. Apart from those details it had no frills, but it was comfortable, complete and enjoyable. Front desk people were nice and willing to help at all times. Breakfast was included and was good although the offering did not go beyond juices, coffee, toast, croissants and cereals. It was the only negative point I found about this great little hotel.
I was in London Bridge May and stayed at the Ibis Wembley, is a 100% smoke-free place, we had a small problem with the reservation for one of the rooms but we sorted it out and they were very good to us, thanks to the guy at the reception called Carlos, many thanks. I would like to contact you to continue giving you my thanks for everything, I thought I would like you to show me Abbey Road.
The best place to stay in London, at least in my experience! It's completely different from anything else, set in a former prison. You can still sleep in the old cells if you want (a chilling experience, but I don't recommend it: they are cold and narrow, and anyone can spy on you through the peephole). The breakfast is generous, and there is a large kitchen for you to use. Parties are organized frequently in the bar, and there are also vending machines. The staff are friendly, and the atmosphere is young and dynamic. I recommend it!
This is a good choice to stay in London and is excellent value for money. The hotel is a "bed & breakfast" with small rooms and a continental breakfast each day. It is very well located, five minutes walk from Victoria Railway Station (for the Gatwick Express), the Victoria metro station (central line and perfect for connecting with other metro lines) and just before the number 24 bus stop (which can take you to Trafalgar Square or Camden for example). The area is very quiet. The hotel is family-run and the service is very welcoming. The rooms are clean and well maintained.
This chain of hotels has a lot of establishments throughout the UK. The rooms are clean and spacious and they offer most essential amenities, including a private bathroom; Although it's small it's enough. You can enjoy an authentic British breakfast for £ 7.
The Country Inn Suites are recommendable for both business and pleasure travelers. Located in the vicinity, you can find the British Museum, FashionableCovent Garden, world-famous shopping, Regent Street, Oxford Street, Bond Street, and the theaters of the city of London.
The rooms are very comfortable and some of the amenities it provides are non-smoking rooms, a telephone, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, housekeeping, private bathroom, and complimentary toiletries.
They feature a bath/shower combination, cable television and flat screen TVs, high-speed Internet and television internet, both for a fee.
The hotel has a great location in the very lively neighbourhood of Bayswater. It's close to two metro stops that will take you anywhere in the city. Very clean and all new. But the room and bathroom are fairly small. If your room faces the street it's noisy all night long making it hard to sleep. We asked for room change and were given another room that wasn't as noisy. Good breakfast with juices, coffee, toast, croissant, cereal, yogurt. It is important to keep an adapter, because if not, you will not be able to charge your phone, camera, etc. I asked at the front desk several times and they seem to have them, but I never got it.
The Premier Inn South Bank is on the south bank of the Thames, a it's very nice as the whole riverside is pedestrian with plenty of restaurants and bars around. You're in the medieval heart of London, which is small, but known for very good bars and restaurants. Premier Inn is a hotel chain so you can get a good price if you book in advance via the web. Rooms start at £ 80/night, the normal price is £ 115 without breakfast.
Overnight accommodation in London for me is always a dilemma. The hostels are expensive and of poor quality (although some have charm) while the hotels are often even more expensive. The Lancaster Gate Hotel (three stars, but higher than the average level) offers a good value for your money: good location (along Hyde Park), clean and comfortable rooms, big breakfast (if included), wi-fi, computer terminals and underground (Central Line) five minutes away. Perhaps the hotel has a great personality, but it is a good solution if you have to sleep in this London area.
Notting HIll Gate Hotel is a cozy hotel a few blocks from Porto Bello road and Bayswater Road. We were very comfortable. It was clean and spacious, with a newly renovated bathroom. The price includes continental breakfast, with milk, coffee, toast, cereal, croissants and Nutella. The service was friendly and attentive. If I go back to London I will certainly go back. It was a pleasure to be able to wander around Portobello from this hotel.
Small hotel but with a very good quality/price ratio. The rooms have a sink but the shower and toilet are shared and cleaned very often, each guest has an individual locker in the room. There is free wifi throughout the hotel and breakfast is included in the price (toast, croissants, cereals, muesli, butter, jam, orange juice, apple juice, milk, coffee, chocolate and tea). All day there is free water and it has a TV, bar, pool table and indoor and outdoor dining. Totally recommended.
Palmers Lodge Swiss Cottage is a 2-star hotel ideal for those who enjoy traveling but don't want to spend to much money. It's not a luxury hotel but it's extremely clean and the bathrooms were cleaned and disinfected several times per day. The common areas were all nice and heated. Overall, I'd highly recommend it.
The Caswell Hotel is a small hotel with around 20 rooms. Each floor has several rooms and a shared bathroom. In the morning, you go down into the kitchen where they serve you toast and croissants with coffee or tea. The guests are pretty international and we met Spanish, Germans, and Italians there. Its popularity is due to the price (60€/night, downright cheap for London) and its location only a 10 minutes' walk from Victoria Station.
