Budget Hotels in London Including Bed & Breakfast

Hand picked hotels with a bias toward value for money in London


Budget Hotel London

Every week we review the best value budget hotel accommodation in London in all sectors of the market. Then we hand pick some suggestions for you to benchmark against.

There is no 'best' hotel or 'best' district to stay in, there are better districts than others for your own individual preferences and budget.

The choices here are driven from the perspective of the leisure traveller looking for value for money.


The hotels published on this page feature prices looking 7 weeks ahead. Room rates are seasonal in London, so if you look further forward the prices may be radically different, up or down. Also note that most hotel districts in London are either more expensive at the weekend or cheaper, broadly the business orientated districts are cheaper at the weekends, the leisure ones more expensive. That is why we state indicative rates for both mid-week and at the weekend.

We have supplemental pages for single rooms in London and family rooms for 3 or more people on our family rooms in London pages.


You may get worthwhile extra insight by reading our guide to the major hotel districts in London, all are very different. This describes which districts are more central, which are budget districts and which are exclusive. Plus links so you can read detailed coverage of what to expect in each district and detailed discussion of the airport transfer links between a particular hotel district and each one of London's airports.


Please note the prices stated below are indicative prices, a snapshot of the rates at the time we do our weekly review. Nowadays, even most of the small independent hotels have room rates that change all the time, especially in the short term that these prices depict.

Comment: The immediate district around Kings Cross & St Pancras Railway Stations has always been a benchmark district for budget accommodation in Central London. Despite recent massive rejuvenation and redevelopment and the introduction of more swanky 4 and 5 star hotels, directly opposite the stations around Argyle Square nearly every building is a small cheap Bed & Breakfast hotel.

Intense competition keeps prices reasonable. With direct rail links to Heathrow, Luton and Gatwick Airports and an airport bus to Stansted Airport the districts is outstanding for transfers and also a major Underground hub .

Budget Priced 4 Star Hotel With Very Good Reviews
Copthorne Tara Hotel Kensington - 4 Star Hotel

Just off Kensington High Street within 3 minutes walk of Kensington High Street Underground Station. Easy to reach the shops and restaurants of Kensington High Street, Knightsbridge, and Notting Hill.
A 4 star full service hotel with very competitive room rates for the quality of hotel. Air-conditioned rooms, a brasserie with Asian-style dishes and the Cafexpress internet cafe plus independent restaurants in abundance on your doorstep.

Rooms: Double/Twin Rooms
Underground: Kensington High Street - 100m (Map Ref: 51)


Comment: The number of stars on a property only reflects the facilities provided by the hotel not how good a hotel. A 2 star hotel could conceivably be much nicer than a 4 star hotel. If you want room service, concierge services, in-house restaurants and fitness facilities then you will require a 4 star property, but in this sector room rates vary wildly and are very volatile in price.

Kensington, a large hotel district, just to the west of the centre of London is a fertile hunting ground for such properties if you have one eye on the wallet.
