Where to stay in London

Where to Stay and Have the Best Hotel Experience in London

Do you need an A-list grand hotel that has welcomed royals or a foodie heaven? Maybe you seek for an affordable haven or a fancy townhouse. When it comes to hotels, you will find everything you need in London.

Luke Abrahams
20 May 2023

From grand dames to world-firsts and some of the most exclusive addresses on the entire planet, London is home to the cream of the crop when it comes to stylish (and fun) hotel addresses. We’ve compiled the finest of the bunch that tick all the boxes, from romantic weekends to bank account-busting luxury and cutesy family stays.

Claridge’s, Mayfair

London’s most famous and talked about Mayfair Hotel has welcomed everyone from members of the Royal Family, A-List celebrities, foreign dignitaries, and aristocrats since it first swung open its doors in 1812. Staff are always at the very top of their game and service is traditionally old school in this art deco glam blast from the past. The afternoon tea service is legendary, as are the world-famous Fumoir and Claridge’s bars. Rooms are ultra-luxurious, many of which are the work of celebrity designers from Andre Fu to Boss Studio. It’s a bucket list hotel that for over a century, has never failed to woo guests with its throwback charm.

The Savoy London, The Strand

The UK’s first “luxury hotel” has been setting standards high since it opened in 1889. Decades on, The Savoy has its fair share of headline restaurants and brilliant bars, the award-winning American Bar and the rather lush River Restaurant to name a few. Home to the Savoy Theatre, it’s a hotel that oozes character and history. It was a firm favorite of Oscar Wilde and Charlie Chaplin, and Hollywood greats from Marilyn Monroe to Elizabeth Taylor have swung by over the years. Rooms are maximalist in every way imaginable (the Gucci suite speaks for itself) with comfy beds and roomy tubs, plus the views over the Thames and London Eye are near unbeatable.

The Connaught Hotel, Mayfair

It Is Worth Staying in Central London

Though it might cost a little bit more, staying in Central London will save you money in travel fares as so much of the city is easily walkable.

This one is perfect for foodies and families. Sister to Mayfair grand dame, Claridge’s Hotel, The Connaught is all about fine living. The world-famous Connaught Bar draws in all the buzzing crowds, as do the hotel’s restaurants masterminded by chefs Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Hélène Darroze. Rooms come in all shapes and sizes and feature all the latest luxury amenities. For extra pampering, don’t miss the underground AMAN spa, and if you are looking for great family day outs, the concierge can plan everything from a personalized itinerary to car hire and more.

The Hoxton, Southwark

The Hoxton is easily one of London’s coolest stays. The vibe is no-fuss thrills with a design aesthetic that was truly made for the Instagram feed. There are several outposts in the city from the original in Shoreditch to Holborn and White City, but when it comes to wow factor, none beat the hotel’s Southwark outpost. Rooms are cozy, super snug, and some come with unbeatable views of the nearby landmark The Shard. The jewel in its crown comes courtesy of Seabird, the hotel’s rooftop bar and restaurant. The basque-inspired food is excellent, as are the views from the dreamy plant-flecked terrace.

Mama Shelter, Bethnal Green

The latest design-led hotel concept to hit Bethnal Green is the super cool and super affordable Mama Shelter. While it looks over-the-top the crowd trumps all the trends with their edgy slacks and alternative clothing brands, so if you are looking for a stay that’s different from the rest, this is where to check-in. The bedrooms are flat-packed and feature cheeky toiletries and bright velvet pillows on the beds. It’s more of a one-night kind of hotel, hence the absence of a wardrobe or minibar but the hope for the owners is that this will force you to go out and explore the local area. Breakfast is delicious, traditional, and not to be missed.

The Culpeper, Spitalfields

If you seriously want to experience a slice of east London, The Culpeper is where it’s at. The pub with rooms is perfect for adults in search of a fun and romantic weekend that won’t break the bank. Rooms are a vision of polished concrete, exposed painted brickwork, and finer industrial details, and you’ll also find one of the city’s most exciting cocktail and natural wine list menus in The Culpeper bar. Food? All deliciously seasonal and gourmet with menus that celebrate local suppliers and businesses.

Rosewood London, Holborn

The best part about staying here is its location. You are a hop and skip away from Covent Garden, minutes away from the British Museum and if you want to catch a show, Theatreland is a brisk five-minute walk west. A favorite of the likes of Justin Bieber, stay here if you want something extra special for the family. 24-hour room service is just one of the perks, as is the lower ground temple bar, ultra-moody Scarfe’s Bar and the Dining Room, a lovely spot to grab dinner in. Rooms come with all the mod-cons, including AC and marble bathrooms.

Treehouse Hotel London, West End

The Treehouse is all about having fun. It’s great for an adult weekend or families in search of a central London stay that does not max out the credit card. Conveniently located on the top end of Regent Street right next to the BBC HQ on Langham Place, the hotel is close to all the top attractions from shopping haven Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus, Regent’s Park, and posh Mayfair. The hotel takes up five floors, all offering stylish places, whimsical backdrops, and from the bedrooms, epic views of the streets below.

The Standard London

Aside from its great prices and perfect location, the beauty of staying at The Standard is that it’s a great base for a double whammy: you can easily explore London and the rest of the UK thanks to nearby King’s Cross Station. Ultra-modern, the spaces attract a cool crowd who love nothing more than to chill on the hotel’s rooftop which boasts spectacular views of London and beyond. Standard rooms come with comfy beds and thoughtful minibars, and if you splurge on a suite, you’ll be treated to views of the very Gothic St Pancras station next door.

The Pilgrm Hotel, Paddington

If you fancy something a little out of the city, book a room at The Pilgrm. The Victorian townhouse is somewhat of a community staple with locals flocking to its coffee shop for perfectly roasted java. Bedrooms are wonderfully minimal and feature original fixtures and reclaimed 200-year-old parquet flooring. Food is another bonus and is made under the watchful eye of Ian Aungier. Expect casual eats that pack a flavorful punch. The hotel’s central suburban location means it’s easy to get to anywhere in the city and it’s within walking distance way from London’s popular Notting Hill neighborhood.

The Zetter Townhouse, Clerkenwell

As a travel journalist I get to spend a lot of time in hotels. London has some of the best rooms and suites in the world, so even if it is just for the memories, blowing the cash does pay off for an experience that is truly everlasting.

For those looking for a very quirky, London-centric stay say ‘ello to The Zetter Townhouse. Tucked away in Clerkenwell, the homey boutique hotel is an advert for all things eclectic. Fun curios are dotted all around the place, in addition to period furniture and ornaments collected from different periods. There are only 13 rooms and suites, so it’s all about small living, but on a grand scale. The afternoon tea here is also legendary and the concierge will point you in the direction of all the cool shops, restaurants, bars, and cafes the locals can’t get enough of.
