Hotels near Waterloo station and County Hall London

Accommodation close to Waterloo station and County Hall

Marriott County Hall Waterloo London
Marriott County Hall, with fantastic views by the London Eye

Most of the hotels in Waterloo are dotted along or are nearby to the River Thames. Waterloo has some iconic landmarks and great entertainment attractions which make this such a popular place to stay in London for business and leisure travellers alike.

The hotels here are usually chain style hotels, typically 3-, 4- or 5-star. Unlike most London areas, the hotels in Waterloo and County Hall are actually cheaper at weekends and holiday periods like August and Christmas. This is because it is an area that attracts business visitors during the week, being the closest hotels to the many government departments surrounding the Houses of Parliament opposite. 



Location

This area of London is on the south bank of the River Thames and plays host or is very close to some of London’s major attractions. The London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey are all easily accessible from the South Bank.

Waterloo Station is a short walk away from the River Thames and is one of the major transport hubs in London. Thousands of commuters will pass through Waterloo every day and it is one of the gateways to London from the South East of England.

The area along the river has seen regeneration and investment since the London Eye arrived and could be classed as a cultural hotspot within London.

Is Waterloo the right location for your London stay?

Landmarks and attractions nearby

This area is full of landmarks and attractions. Leave Waterloo station towards the river and you will arrive at the London Eye with the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Big Ben sitting just across the bridge. Three major attractions within yards of each other.

You can also take a leisurely walk along the south bank of the river and find yourself at the South Bank Centre and Royal Festival Hall, a creative hub of London.

Further along the river you'll reach Tate Modern, the Millennium Bridge and finally Tower Bridge. Alternatively, cross the river and you will be at Trafalgar Square within 5-mins and Oxford Street is a 20-min walk from Waterloo station or a short tube ride.

Transport connections

As a major transport hub, Waterloo and County Hall offers excellent transport links to all areas of London and further afield.

Alternative options nearby

If you need to stay mid-week and would like to find more budget accomodation, moving north of the river, there is plenty. Bloomsbury is an attractive hotel area, just 10 minutes' walk north-east of the very central and exclusive Mayfair area. It is home to the British Museum amongst other attractions.

If you particularly want to be close to the river, then the City area just north of the river is a similarly attractive area but does have the same mid-week hotel price hike.

Hotel prices in Waterloo are very variable according to the time of week and even year, as explained above. Weekend prices are the cheapest in the Waterloo area.
