Cheap hotels in London: Best budget stays in central London

Cheap hotels in London: Best budget stays in central London

Our fair capital is known for many things: thriving art and culture, great dining and more old buildings than you can shake a stick at – but it’s not normally heralded for being cheap.

That said, the Big Smoke is stacked with great-value digs if you know where to look – and those looking to save on accommodation don’t need to compromise on style, either.

As someone who’d rather flash their cash on a night on the town – complete with scandalously overpriced cocktails – than a fancy room, here’s our pick of London hotels that won’t break the bank but will give you a fabulous night’s sleep.

Neighbourhood: Soho

Boasting a price that’s more suburban than city centre, this branch of the Z Hotel chain is slap bang in the middle of the action if what you’re looking for is the West End and the shops of Oxford Street. Despite its on-point location, the 120-room former office block hasn’t sacrificed style, with chic, contemporary rooms furnished in white and charcoal. Although on the cosy side, all rooms come with an ensuite shower room, crisp bed linen and a Samsung 49 inch HD Smart TV with a full selection of Sky channels and BT Sport. The cheapest rooms have no windows.

Compact, minimalist rooms (including some with no windows) come with everything a discerning traveller could need – Hypnos bed, power shower, 40-inch Smart TV, hairdryer and mood lighting – and the addition of an ironing room makes it easy to stay smart. Guests can show their room key card for free access to a high-spec nearby gym during their stay.
