Sidney Hotel In Victoria London

Sidney Hotel In Victoria

Budget hotels in London City Centre can be very hard to judge. The number of stars a hotel has only reflects the facilities offered by a hotel, not how clean, well maintained or how large the bedrooms.


If the lowest price is going to be your overriding factor for selecting accommodation then you're probably best to start looking at cheap Bed and Breakfast hotels.

If you want a comfortable hotel but don't want to pay out money needlessly for facilities like a fitness centre or room service then in terms of stars, 3 star is about right for you. A breakfast room and a small lounge are the basics for such grade hotels in terms of facilities outside your room.


No frills budget chains like Premier Inn, Ibis, Comfort Inn and Travelodge set a benchmark for the budget traveller to compare mid range hotels in London. On this page we look at independent hotels that directly compete against the above chains.


Location and the day of week you stay will have a big impact on the hotel rate you pay.

Sunday night is the cheapest night to stay at most hotels in London.

If the hotel is in a business district then the cheapest rates will be at the weekend, for hotel districts dominated by leisure travellers the weekends are normally the most expensive time to stay. The south side of the river and Tower Bridge areas are examples of districts where hotel rates are deep discounted at the weekend when the businessmen are at home. Bayswater an example of a leisure district where room rates are far lower during the working week than at the weekend.


In the independent sector the largest numbers of mid-range independent hotels are found in the hotel districts of Kensington around Earls Court and Gloucester Road, Bayswater, Paddington, Victoria and Euston. Of these Bayswater, Paddington and Victoria are normally more expensive at the weekend, Euston less expensive.

Kensington room rates are comparatively stable with a slight softness at the weekend, though this can all change if there is a large exhibition or event on in town. Kensington is particularly convenient for those using London's main airport, Heathrow.
