London Ibis City

London Ibis City is one of those cheaper hotels that somehow manages to get away with it. Compared to the plush carpets and unrepentant luxury of the other hotels you’ll find in Central London, it looks a little sparse and basic, but you won’t mind. There’s just something about it

London Town Hotel

When you’re looking for a budget hotel in the capital, there’s an acceptance that what you’ll get is something that isn’t quite central. The inevitable facts of the inner city rents mean that no one is going to be offering a prime location with perfect service at a rate that’s

The Walrus hostel

There’s something that’s just stereotypical and bland about many hostels. The honest truth is that they’re there to give you somewhere to sleep for as little money as possible. That’s fine, but they could be a little bit more subtle about it. The endless rows of greys and blues and

Hotel 41

Hotel 41 is something of an oddity in the 5* market. Whilst it undoubtedly offers luxury in incredible amounts, it’s a little different from the competition. Look past the plush furniture and dark wood: behind it lies a hotel that is all about service, excellence and a real desire to

Chelsea Cloisters

Chelsea Cloisters is one of those utterly bizarre little places that you would never find without a guide. From the outside, it looks like a failed council building from the late 80’s, honestly a bit of an aberration in what is generally a very nice area. Head inside though, and

The Rosewood

The Rosewood is something of an oddity amongst 5* hotels. Although it offers finery and sophistication, it is considerably more subtle than its rivals. Don’t expect to see wall to wall velvet and dark wood here! Instead, there’s a pleasant mix of romance and whimsy, a pristine shrine to the

Imperial College Accomodation

These student halls are something of an oddity as far as hostels go. For a start, they’re actually well furnished and well looked after. The university’s subsidisation of their care really helps to maintain high standards that few would expect in places in this price bracket. It really does knock

The Cleveland

The Cleveland might be pushing it, as far as the term: “budget hotels” goes, but it really is one of the very best you’re going to find at this price-range. Smaller rooms are available from just fifty pounds a night, a rate that few others can compete with. Its central

Jesmond Dene Hotel

The Jesmond Dene Hotel gets off to a good start by being located relatively close to the centre of the city. Most of the sites and shopping destinations that you might want to visit are only a short journey away, which is always a handy little factor for those that

Beaufort House

Beaufort House is one of those serviced apartments that makes the rest seem so vastly inferior that it almost seems like it must be cheating in some way. What magic are they using to keep it so clean? How do their pillows always seem to stay so plump? If you
