cheap hotels in londonDo you want to discover River Thames, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, the London Dungeon, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Tate Modern Art Gallery and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and everything else London is famous for?

Actually we want to find the best budget hotels in the entire central London.

“Red card to high prices” is one of the Tune Hotels’ own slogans. They are already established in Asia og now the first Tune Hotel opens in a very central part of Liverpool with rates starting from 35 pounds. But they will charge you for almost everything you need, from towels to cleaning. They have also hotels in Edinburgh and Newcaste. Check prices and read more on Tune Hotels’ own website.  Read on for where to find the cheapest lodging in London!

Cheap hotels in London are possible, you just need to know where to look

Updated 25/05-2017: Tune Hotels are not longer located in London, but for the coolest hostels you can check out Famoushostels.com. I stayed at Czech Inn in Francouzská 76 in Prague, and the hostel was really fancy and cool. Especially the breakfast was the best I have ever seen in a hostel. If you are just on a short holiday and don’t plan to sleep much anyway, you can get shared rooms for an affordable price, as low as 17 Euros. Check out St Christopher’s Village in London. It has a good location, but be aware that it will be a bit noisy in the evenings and nights.

Cheap hotels in London are not impossible. If you prefer a private bedroom, you could also check out Travelstay where I found easily a double room from $70 per night when I searchcheap hotels in londoned for hostels with a central location of London, which I found even cheaper than Airbnb. The benefit of Airbnb is that you live in an authentic home. You can find private houses or just choose a private room to find better bargains. If you are late, you can book until 23:59 on hotels.com and booking.com. If you have a Hotels.com account you will get every 10th night for free. I use to compare hotel prices for the same accomodations at these two websites. Sometimes one may have free breakfast, free parking or free cancelation, while the others have just a basic room. Unfortunately recently the cancelation rules have become stricter. Earlier Free Cancellation meant that you could cancel your hotel until 12 one day before you should check in. Recently I have noticed that Free Cancellation means only until 3 days of 5 days before your check-in day. So be careful. It is easy to read the small text too late and you thought you could cancel it but it is already too late. You could also check out Agoda (Agoda are big in Asia) and Alpharooms.com (s0me good values on Spanish resorts).

You can compare more hotel providers at momondo.com and trivago.com.

I have also stayed with Airbnb. The listing for the apartment I rented, “Luxury flat,Zone1,1 bed/Lounge” is unfortunately removed. But I really liked the location and I saved the address: Flat 103, 46a commercial street, E16lt, London. The area is so different from the the other areas of London I have been to. It reminds me of a hipster area, with vibrant shops, restaurants and markets nearby. It was located 200 meters walking from Aldgate East station, which takes you to everywhere in London very quick. I was eating at the Mexican restaurant Lupita which is located just one block away, and the food was really good and not to expensive, and the atmosphere was great. I would like to live in the same neighbourhood next time. I think I paid 120£ per night for a suite with a private bedroom and a huge livingroom, all for 2 people. Actually Airbnb is London is not for the budget travellers.

I have also stayed at the Z Hotel City Hotel  in 24 Fleet Street, London, EC4Y 1AA,  where I paid approximately £ 60 per night. It was a cozy and small design hotel located next to Temple Church, which is a beautiful and historic place at the very centre of London. In the neighbourhood you have also a wealth of bars, restaurants and clubs so you will not find the location boring at all.

Once I only had one night in London and an early flight next morning from Heathrow next morning I decided to stay a bit outside of the city, and Hotel 55 was a convenient choice. North Ealing metro is just 2 minutes walking distance away. The hotel also has got a really good Japanese restaurant named Momo so there is no excuse if you are hungry. The underground to and from Heathrow takes 30 minuteas and there are departures every 10th minutes. Prices for a doubleroom at Hotel 55 starts from £75.
