There is so much to do in London it is unreal. Whether you are going shopping, seeing family, seeing friends, going out for dinner, going to the theatre, there is so much to do. Being in London doing all of these things and more is such a fantastic experience. If you do not live in London yourself, then what is not so great is having to work your way across London at the end of the night, at god knows what hour, to then get the train back home. People tend to do this a lot more than staying in London overnight due to the fact that they believe that prices to be too extortionate per night, this of course does not have to be the case.
There are many hotels within London or nearby which are both great quality and affordable, you just have to look out for these hotels and also much more expensive hotels which have offers on. The top 5 hotels to stay in London on a budget are as follows; The Westbridge Hotel, Belgrave House Hotel, Kensington Suite Hotel, Hazel Wood Guesthouse and one of the Millennium Hotels and Resorts.
The Westbridge Hotel is situated in Stratford, where the Olympics Stadium is. This hotel can range in prices, but none that are too expensive. It is seen as a luxurious hotel which at first glance people would not consider as the interior design is so magnificent that you would believe the prices must be wrong. Situated on the High Street it is convenient when coming to things such as going out for dinner or for a drink. You are able to make your way from here to the centre of London either on tram or on the tube.
Belgrave House Hotel is a great place to stay if you are going to the theatre as it is situated so near to Victoria tube station. For the accommodation you are given at Belgrave, the prices seem impossible! With rooms all at good standard sizes and food available within the hotel it is seen as an ideal place to stay when you are on a budget.
Kensington Suite Hotel has a beautiful location, right near Holland Park. It is far enough away from the city that you are not disturbed, but in a location that enables you to get into the centre quickly and easily.
There is then of course Hazel Wood Guesthouse. This is the cheapest of the five, being a bed and breakfast. Run by pleasant owners, it is a place where you can have a comfortable stay, for a very cheap price.
Millennium hotels and resorts are usually seen as an expensive place to stay, but they are commonly known to always have many deals and offers on, making them more affordable than people may think. There are many located around the world, and just like the ones for example in New York, the ones within London have exactly the same standard. This is the perfect place to stay for people either wanting a romantic visit to London, or on a business trip. It is ideally located in Kensington, with a beautiful exterior design and fantastic living space within.
Finding places to stay in London that are not ridiculously priced does not have to be the struggle which people believe it to be. So instead of having to get back to the station and then sit for a long journey on the way home, why not consider staying the night, or a few nights!
