Single rooms in London (roomsbbaccommodate just one person) are widely available in central London. If there is only one of you, why pay for an empty bed when paying the price of the classic standard double or twin room?
Single hotel rooms in London are available in the full range of hotel grades in London from simple bed and breakfast hotels to large luxury hotels. Unlike in some cities there are not many hotels in London that give a single person a discount for occupying a double bed room.
In terms of availability the largest choice of single bed rooms is in the cheap bed and breakfast hotels where the breakfast will normally be part of the rate.
The largest choice of bed and breakfast accommodation offering single rooms is around the main railway stations of King's Cross, St Pancras, Euston, Paddington and Victoria. If you are flying into Heathrow, Earl's Court is very conveniently placed with direct Underground trains every 5 minutes and a good choice of single rooms.
If you feel awkward sitting on your own in a restaurant there are some studio apartments that are reasonably priced that come with a kitchenette. We have a dedicated page looking at studios and small apartments in London.
