Check out the affordable hotels in London
It is essential to choose well where to stay in London to make the most of your trip. I had the opportunity to live in this fantastic city, and my suggestion is not to stay in a very remote neighborhood. If you stay between zone 1 and 2, it is perfect, as they are regions close to the city center, where are the main tourist places. Moreover, going beyond these two areas, public transport costs more.
As it may seem like a lot to think about, I have made a selection of well-located London hotels. At the end of the post, some tips can help you when looking for a hotel. 😉
(from £ 108)
Situated near St. Pancras International Train Station, The Judd Hotel is on my list of super-well-located London hotels. Easy for those arriving in the city by train, it is accessible by several subway lines. Not to mention it is in the Camden Town neighborhood – a must-stop for the first time in Queen’s Land.
For guests, there is breakfast included, 24-hour front desk, family rooms, in-room tea and coffee making facilities and essential services.
Address: 46 Cartwright Garden, Camden, London, WC1H 9EL

With a 9.0 rating on Booking, Motel One London is a design hotel set in a safe area of London. It is close to two London sights and tube stations.

If you are a fan of a cooler footprint and love street art, the Shoreditch neighborhood is perfect. A little further from the central area, the region became the point of Londoners.
In addition to street art, there are several open markets with independent producers and traders, ranging from fashion to food.
The hotel in question has a modern décor to match the area, as well as other amenities of the ibis hotel chains, such as rooms equipped with essentials for a good night’s sleep, free wifi, breakfast (paid service), bar, among others.
Address: 5 Commercial Street, Tower Hamlets, London, E1 6BF
A four-star hotel, close to one of London’s sights: the Tower of London, where you can see the Crown Jewelry Exhibition. Even the Tower is possible through the window of some rooms.
Among the advantages of this hotel are fast and free wifi, iPad to control the entire room (heating, for example), a safe, minibar – with complimentary water, lift, bar, among others.
Tip: If you are in this area, I recommend having a typical English breakfast at Coppa Club restaurant. Delicious! 😉

Part of the Hilton Hotels chain, DoubleTree is an excellent bargain. It has bright and spacious rooms with large windows, iMac monitor for more straightforward room and large TV for superiors, tea, and coffee making facilities and more.

Some other good points: Breakfast is included in the daily rate, there is the option of free cancellation and no prepayment for some rooms.
The hotel is close to London’s oldest market – Borough Market – which is a culinary paradise. If you choose this option, do like Londoners and set aside a day to have lunch in this market. But watch out for the day as it is closed on Sundays.

The rooms are well equipped and soundproofed – which is excellent! Sleep listening to the next-door neighbor, nobody deserves it!

Strength of the H10 hotel is the region where it is situated and its neighbors. The English icon Big Ben and the London Eye Ferris wheel are just a few. But that is not all.

How to use Booking to search for hotels in London?
Not excited about any of the options mentioned? No problem! I give you some tips for searching on search engines like Booking.
In addition to entering primary travel information, you can create filters that help you remove options that are not what you want. Below are some of the primary filters I usually use.
⇒ Budget: To choose the price range closest to your budget.
⇒ Category: if you prefer a three or four-star hotel, for example.
⇒ Property Type: Although Booking is known for being a hotel booking site, it is not just a hotel. There are options for lodging in an aparthotel, hostel, guesthouses, or even only booking Airbnb style.
⇒ Review score: A filter according to the ratings of those who have already tested the site. I usually filter to see only hosts rated above 8.
⇒ District: Always filter by “favorite guest areas” as they are more central and cost-effective areas generally. If I already have an idea of a neighborhood I would like to stay in, I put that too.
These are the filters that I use most, but there are still places of interest, based on city sights; convenience; booking conditions and several others.
If you choose to stay in these hotels or can recommend one, come back here and share what your experience was like. I will love to know! 😉
