Best Hotels in Central London: Budget, Mid-Range and Expensive
Whether you seek luxury or low price, Central London won’t disappoint you with its choice and quality of hotels. Here is a look at some of the best hotels in Central London across all price categories.
Inexpensive yet comfortable
Many prospective property renters or buyers like to explore their neighbourhood of interest before making their choice. If you’re looking at properties to rent in Soho, Mimi’s Hotel Soho is conveniently located in the epicentre of the vibrant area. Prices start at £105/night, offering good value for the stylish décor and ground-floor bar that serves breakfast in the morning and cocktails in the evenings.
Need a comfortable hotel to fit your £50/night budget? Z at Gloucester Place, a converted Georgian townhouse, is only six minutes from Marylebone Underground stations. The hotel’s minimalist rooms feature beautiful linen, HDTV with all channels, underbed storage and in-room coffee and tea making.
Prime property in Covent Garden is no doubt expensive, but it has its fair share of low-priced hotels. One that any estate agent London would probably know of, given its history, is Strand Palace Hotel. From £78/night, the establishment that first opened in 1909, this hotel offers standard singles and deluxe studio rooms for leisurely stays.
Located off Baker’s Street, 22 York Street is a charming Georgian 5-storey terraced townhouse. It offers elegant high-ceilinged rooms with wooden flooring, French antiques, television and hair dryer. Morning breakfast is included in the £150/night rate, and self-serve teas and coffees are available at all hours.
At £162/night, The Gore at Kensington offers a high-end feel courtesy of Venetian beds, beautiful replicas of famous paintings and original Victorian floor tiling.
Planning a solo stay? The Ampersand Hotel in the heart of South Kensington, near the Royal Albert Hall, has contemporary décor while retaining a few Victorian features harking back to its heydays as a grand building in the mid 1800s. You can choose from five categories of rooms each with their own décor theme reflecting the hotel’s location. The hotel charges £192 per person; for £200/night, The Levin on Knightsbridge is an excellent alternative.
Top-tier luxury hotels
If price is no object, these are the best hotels in Central London to check into. For incredible luxury, the £600/night Mandarin Oriental is a Knightsbridge gem. It offers rich views of Hyde Park, featuring two Michelin-starred restaurants, and cocooning guests in rooms equipped with the latest in-room entertainment.
You can be assured of 5-star service at London Marriott Hotel Park Lane, for £323/night. The hotel features the only swimming pool on Park Lane, and luxurious touches such as arrangements for baby-sitting services and a fully-equipped gym.
At £420/night, Claridge’s in Mayfair promises excellent hospitality and delectable cuisine, in line with its long-standing heritage of hosting royalty, celebrities and heads of state.
