London has always been a favorite destination for many tourists. In 2011, the English city attracted 15.3 million international visitors. Most of the places that people visit are Kensington Palace, the London Eye, British Museum and the Tower of London. If you’re a tourist who will go to London for the first time, imagine how hard it will be to find an accommodation against 15 million other tourists. This is where planning comes in. Before you set your feet on the plane, you better make sure that when you arrive in London, your hotel accommodations have been ironed out. There are many hotels in London to choose from. Most of them will give you more fun than what you really came for.
One of the best hotels under a budgeted price is Stylotel which Le Corbusier described as “a house that is machine for living in.” Stylotel is a unique ultra-modern hotel with stylish hotel rooms and exquisite apartments. Another hotel worth trying is the Twenty Nevern Square. This hotel near Earls Court Exhibition Center boasts 20 rooms with different individual designs. Each design is inspired by the European, Oriental, and Far East Culture. Other inns worth mentioning are Arran House Hotel, the Pavilion, Hoxton, and Avo Hotel.
If you are planning to visit the London Eye and see the city from many stories above then you should find some affordable hotels located nearby. Try the Tune Hotel on the Westminster Bridge Road near the Morley College with London Eye located about half a kilometer from the hotel, which is visible from the guestrooms at higher floors. There are a total of 76 guestrooms which are quite modern but with minimal decoration. It is an affordable and comfortable London accommodation, ideal for budget tourists who look for budget hotels and want to do most of their spending on seeing sights rather than booking an expensive guestroom. Another nearby tourist attractions are the Big Ben and the Thames River.
If you can’t get enough of the tourist spots that London boasts, you can try Clapham Grand. The hotel is known for its first class events like theatrical plays, standup comedy, dance shows, and pool and poker tournaments. At this hotel, you can enjoy the one thing that many English are fond of: poker. For poker enthusiasts who live around Clapham High Street and Clapham Junction, this hotel is always the itinerary. Clapham has got all the best poker equipment and players that will definitely make your poker vacation worthwhile. Another factor why Clapham appears attractive for poker enthusiasts is the fact that it is near Aspers Casino, the gaming house that hosted the 2013 if, partypoker World Poker Tour London. The World Poker Tour is one of the biggest poker events in the world. If you want to witness how the likes of Phil Ivey, Antonio Esfandiari, Sam Trickett, Daniel Cates, and Dan Shak play, wait for them in your room inside Clapham Grand. Aspers Casino also hosts various poker tournaments dedicated for amateur bluffers.
Another nice hotel nearby but a little expensive is the Days Inn London Waterloo located on the 54 Kennington Road about a kilometer away from the London Eye. The guestrooms are finely designed and decorated with comfortable beddings, table and nice amenities. The hotel also has a bar and lounge where you can enjoy small snacks, drinks and watch television.
If you visit London for business reasons and you are looking for London hotels that can accommodate you during your business trip then try the 4-star Lancaster London hotel located on the Lancaster Terrace near the Bayswater Road. The hotel entrance and the reception are finely designed and the guestrooms are also excellent. All the rooms have great views of the London streets, television and a small working desk. But if you choose a suite or an exclusive guestroom you will get more facilities including an in-room sofa. You can organize conferences, corporate gatherings, meetings and get-togethers because the hotel has a plenty of space for events.
There are many London hotels that can give you what you exactly need. But the question will always be, is there an available room for you once you get there. London has 15 million visitors per year, which means high competition for accommodations. If you want your London trip to go as smooth as you want it to be, you better talk to your travel agent now and reserve a hotel that best satisfies you.
