Accommodations close to Canary Wharf in City of London

Doubletree by Hilton ExCel London overlooking the historic Royal Docks

This is one of the main financial areas of London and indeed the world. Restaurants, bars, shopping and other leisure facilities, many of them on waterfront positions make this a very pleasant place to stay.

Canary Wharf is directly connected to the rest of London by the Jubilee Line of the London Underground or you can choose the slower but more scenic river boat services. You can also use the DLR (Docklands Light Railway) from Tower Bridge.

Hotel options are dominated by large chain hotels with a bias towards the mid-range and luxury end of the market but you can find good value hotels at weekends and holiday weeks. Canary Wharf is not a location where you will find many, if any, cheap budget hotels on offer.



Canary Wharf landmarks and attractions

The River Thames is an often-overlooked attraction in London which Canary Wharf fully embraces. The O2 arena hosts some of the biggest concerts and shows in the world and the ExCel Centre is a conference and exhibition hub in London. Billingsgate Market is located here. Greenwich is a short boat ride away across the river, home of the meridian line, Greenwich market and the Cutty Sark. It is also a short trip on the Underground to Tower of London, Tower Bridge and all that the City of London has to offer.

Guide prices for Canary Wharf accommodation

Hotel rates do tend to be volatile with local events at the O2 and exhibitions at the ExCeL centre often causing spikes in hotel room rates. The hotels are also biased towards the luxury end of the scale, catering mainly for business people. However, this does mean rates tumble at weekends and on holidays so there are bargains to be had. You can expect to pay in excess of £100 a night in most of these hotels.

Is Canary Wharf the right location for your London stay?

What to expect from Canary Wharf hotels

Although a business area of London, Canary Wharf has much to recommend it to the leisure traveller. Most hotels are positioned along the riverfront and offer some beautiful views of London.

Location benefits

Perfect to stay if you're visiting the O2 or ExCel. You can easily get into the centre of London using public transport or even by taking advantage of the river bus services.

Seasonality

As this is a popular business district, expect to pay more in the week and less at weekends and holidays when the business people are away.
