Sleeping / The Best Budget Hotels in London

London, 2008
Don't get me wrong, I love London (New York City is my first love, London my second). But finding a good hotel in London that isn't ridiculously priced, is ridiculously hard. I've been to London a few times and I've stayed in three different hotels. The first two were OK at best, but when I look at the reviews of those two hotels I would definitely not go there (the reviews were really bad!). The third one was really good, but we were lucky and got a good deal on that one (so normally that one would be more expensive). Off course you can always wait for good discounts on fancy hotels. If you don't want to wait around for that, I've found some pretty awesome hotels for some pretty awesome prices.

Tune Paddington - Tunehotels.com

They offer "5 star beds for 1 star prices". I almost fell out of my chair when I read about this hotel. It sounded to good to be true. The rooms are small but have a good bed and a powerful shower. All the other extras you can buy (this includes £1,50 for towels). The rooms are clean, they use glass and mirrors to make the room look bigger. You have your own bathroom, so you don't have to share. The hotel is close to Edgware Road Underground Station and Paddington Station.

Qbic Hotel London City - London.qbichotels.com

This one is a little bit for expensive than the previous one. Qbic focusses on the five essentials: 1. Clean rooms 2. Comfortable bed 3. Great shower 4. Soundless bedrooms 5. Free WiFi. I think for every traveller this are the most important things about a room. This hotel is located in East London, close to Brick Lane. The hotels offers free WiFi (which I think is a must these days) and free breakfast (fruit juice, protein bar and a piece of fruit). The rooms are small, but not as small as you might think.

This hotel is next to a railway. So some people complained about the noise, where other people said didn't hear anything. Probably has something to do with the location of the room (maybe ask the staff to give you a room far away from the tracks). The hotel is also close to a underground station, which is a good thing because this makes it easy to explore London. The rooms are simple, but nicely decorated. Everything you need is there. Oh and the staff is supposed to be really friendly.

Premier Inn London City - Old Street - www.premierinn.com

The underground station is close by, so it's easy to hop on the tube and explore London. The rooms are simple but nicely decorated. They look modern, clean and the beds are comfortable. Some of the rooms give a pretty view over London and a lot of people reviewed that the staff is very friendly. Book your room early and get a really good price here.
