London offers world class hotels, small chic boutique hotels, and even smaller family run spots that are likely to offer a more homey atmosphere & breakfast in the morning.
Budget tips for London Hotels:
- Many hotels offer discounts for off season stays such as November or January
- Search multiple sites for discounts... the first price you see probably isn't the best
- Factor in the entire cost of your stay. Is the hotel less expensive but far from the center of town? If so you'll spend a lot on transportation. What is included with the room? Breakfast? Internet? Parking?
