London is a very tourist city as there are many landmarks and monuments to be seen. This ancient city attracts more than 30 million tourists annually. Whether you want to enjoy London for pleasure or business purposes the question “Where to stay?” comes up.

Hotels in London

One of the most common options is a hotel. Depending on the budget you can compare amenities, locations and hotels. Prices depend on the area you want to stay at. For example – one night in a hotel in Kensington could cost you from £50 to £250 per night. A night in Croydon could cost you from £40 to £200. Most of the hotels offer free Wi-Fi and breakfast. There are different types of rooms to choose from depending on if you’re visiting alone or as a group – singledouble (one double bed), twin (two single beds), triple (one double and 1 single or three single beds) or family (one double bed and two single beds).

Hostels

If you are a bigger group of friends and want a budget stay – browse the hostels. You can find a bed to sleep on for just £12 per night with breakfast included. That’s of course if you don’t mind sleeping in a 21 Bed mixed dormitory. Hostels are usually with Wi-Fi. They also offer private rooms and they are priced almost as hotel rooms. This is a good option if you want to stay in central London for less.

Bed and breakfasts
