Accommodation in London
Where to stay in London? This is the question!
When I'm looking for a hotel, for me is more important the location than the luxury. A 2-3* hotel is pretty good...
I'm not interested in luxury for two reasons:
When I have a low budget, I prefer to spend my money on entrance tickets, shopping and buying souvenirs.
I have to consider that when I'm staying in a new city and I know that most of the time I'll be gone visiting, so the hotel room must have some basic features:
I prefer to pay more for a hotel that is situated in a better location than to pay less for a similar hotel located at the end of the city. With your money you but time which is more important.
If you have kids or you just wanna stay and relax, search a hotel that offers more facilities; the comfort is more important for your family
Yes, I'm travelling on a budget; what is important for me when I choose my hotel?
1. Money, money, money…
Normally, if a hotel is expensive it means also that has a very good location. The higher the price, the better the location. When you have money, the problem is solved : D
The situation is changing if you travel on budget and you know that you are willing to pay a maximum price of 50 Pounds per night for one person or lower.
The price of the room is a good indicator of the facilities that the hotel offers:
Near the hotel must be:
I prefer the tube because it’s fast, there are no traffic jams and I can’t get to any attraction of the city without spending a lot of time.
Also, if I have access to a central tube line, it will be perfect.
I’m looking for a district that’s as close as possible to the center of the city.
It should be quiet and with good reviews on booking.com…no weird people around.
For me it’s important to have a small shop around, from where I can buy a bottle of water and some snacks :)

I know that 3 days aren't enough to visit London, but I've tried to get as much as I could from my city break.
I'm not a shopping fashionista or a club rocker, I'm a traveler, so during my short stay I've tried to visit as much as I could from London's sights.
