London Hotels

A city everyone has to visit at least once in their lives, the capital of the United Kingdom is so large and varied that finding the best London hotel can be tricky. While the Underground makes getting around easy, it's important to choose the right London base that puts you where you most want to be.

Whether you're hitting the West End, visiting the museums and galleries or here for the shopping, find out more about the best places to stay in the UK capital below. Compare various types of London accommodation on Skyscanner to save money on your round-the-world trip.

Where to stay in London


What most people think of when they think of London, the City of Westminster is London's central borough where the important decisions are made. With timeless sights including Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace, and newer landmarks like the London Eye, some of the world's most iconic buildings are on your doorstep when you stay at Westminster hotels – though these can be pricey.

Covent Garden

London's most popular area with tourists, Covent Garden is the heart of Theatreland and abundant in traditional and modern pubs, bustling markets and restaurants serving the best of world cuisine. Covent Garden hotels put you a short walk or Tube ride from the theatres and cultural attractions like the British Museum and the big galleries.


If you're here for the art, the Tate Britain, Tate Modern, V&A Museum and other notable galleries are a short walk from Victoria hotels. You'll be well served by one of London's best transport interchanges and can check off other top sights including the MI5 Building, the Shakespeare pub and the Apollo Victoria Theatre, where Wicked the musical is in permanent residence.
