West London is known for its luxury hotels, but there are a few great value options to suit budget travellers as well. Here are some great options to choose from on your next stay:
The world-renowned Ritz Hotel is an obvious standout choice when looking at accommodation in West London. It doesn’t get much more luxurious than the Ritz and a stay here will be a truly spectacular experience. The lavish interiors reflect regal elegance, and the stunning rooms and suites have been beautifully restored in their original Louis XVI style. Some rooms also offer balconies with stunning views of the city. Guests can enjoy world class afternoon tea, Michelin-starred dining, and extravagant private dining at the Ritz. As one of the world’s leading hotels, you can also expect exceptional service and facilities.
This provides quirky accommodation in West London in the form of a stylish barge in Paddington Basin. The interiors have been designed in a modern Scandinavian style, with neutral tones, oak-panelled walls and faux-fur cushions and throws. Guests can enjoy a picnic or spot of sunbathing on the roof of the barge. Bicycles and a rowing boat are also provided, so that guests can explore the surrounding area. The barge gives a romantic feel of privacy, yet there are plenty of great restaurants and bars within easy walking distance.
This is one of the best options for travellers on a budget, who still want to stay in central London. The well-equipped hostel offers a good selection of rooms – including dorm room, twins, and doubles, that all come with a tasty breakfast. Plus, there is a private rooftop garden and bar where you can meet and interact with other guests, while enjoying beautiful view of the city. You will also benefit from the fact that this hotel is located right in the centre of the West End. This means you can explore central London by foot, without the need to pay for public transport.
