Cheap weekend rates: four star hotels in London

4 star hotels in London are of course not short in number, and with a wide variation in service and facilities offered. Remember the star system only reflects facilities. So in a four star hotel expect lounges and a restaurant.


Things like concierge services, room service, fitness and spa facilities may or may not be available.

If you don't need 24-hour room service, an a la carte restaurant, modern fitness centre or concierge services maybe you don't need a four star hotel at all. If all you need is a comfortable bedroom and a good breakfast and will spending most of the day sightseeing a cheaper 3 star hotel in London may be all that you need.

In general four star hotels are aimed at business people and thus four star hotel in London generally have the lowest rates at the weekend when conferences and business activity are at a low ebb.


London hotel room rates in four star hotels are low during the August holiday period (UK kids only get August off for their summer break) and Christmas, sometimes on par with 3 star hotels. The cheapest rates in London hotels are Sunday nights.

4 star hotels in the main business areas of London (south of the river and around the Tower of London, Liverpool Street Station) are normally significantly cheaper at the weekend than the working week, most other districts that attract more leisure visitors the reverse is true in varying degrees.

With London's excellent public transport and the spread out nature of London itself you can get a lot more 'bang for your buck' by staying just outside this central area. For the leisure traveller a favourite district is Kensington, particularly around the Gloucester Road area. At weekends, Euston, County Hall and around the Tower of London district all lower prices to attract the leisure traveller.
