Accommodation

by Melanie Waldman  

London is one of the world’s leading travel destinations, with millions of visitors coming to the city each year to sample the rich history, culture and entertainment that’s on offer. The challenge for these visitors is to find reasonably priced, comfortable accommodation.

London has a reputation as an expensive city, and not without reason. The closer you want to stay to the historic city center the more you should expect to pay; you can find some great deals, though, if you’re prepared to try more off-the-beaten-track neighborhoods.

Click the links below to find your ideal London accommodation:

Gatwick Hotels Located just under 30 miles south of central London in West Sussex, Gatwick is the UK’s second busiest airport and has a wide selection of hotels in its immediate vicinity. There are good road and rail links to London, with Victoria station only 30 minutes away by train.

Heathrow Hotels Just to the west of London, the world’s busiest international airport has most of the big brand name hotels (Hilton, Sheraton, etc.) that you’d expect. Check on the hotels’ websites for any special offers or deals.

London Hostels If you’re trying to minimize the accommodation costs of your trip, or planning to spend most of your trip out sightseeing,¬†why not consider staying in a hostel? London has a wide array of hostel choices, many with both private and dormitory-style rooms. You won’t get all the creature comforts of a hotel, but you’ll save money, meet other travelers looking for a local experience of the city, and possibly end up in a better location than a hotel in a similar price range.

London Hotels London has hotels that have hosted kings, presidents and movie stars; slick and trendy boutique hotels; independent budget lodgings; and major chains. Choosing a London hotel depends on your budget, needs, desired location and the time of year you hope to be in London.
