I’ve already said that when the best places charge a kidney for the night, you can stay anywhere inside what they call the carboy, zone one for underground transport. Choose a hotel that’s close to a station and, presto, you’re probably well located!
If you are a cautious guy looking for hotels online well in advance I suggest trying the ones closest to Tottenham Court Road, Leicester Square and Covent Garden stations. They are the coolest places and with several options for entertainment and food.

Cheap hotel tips in London
St. Giles Hotel & Leisure Club, on Bedford Avenue, next to Tottenham Court Road Station.
The St. Giles has an incredible location, right in the heart of Soho, a great area for those who enjoy walking around and seeing the city on foot – a great way to make the most of my four-day London itinerary.
The rooms have been renovated, but the hotel still has that old-fashioned feel to it. There are normal sized rooms, but there are also very small rooms, so read exactly which room your chosen rate refers to.
Okay, those are the negatives there, the rest is just joy: fantastic location in Soho, the best price in the region and super helpful staff.
Already know where to stay in London? St. Giles is my London hotel tip
From what I’ve read people have been complaining about the paid internet, but when I stayed there the last time it was free. St. Giles has a nice free gym for guests, as well as a huge swimming pool. Breakfast is usually included in the rate, but after 9 am it gets crowded, it can’t hold everyone.
On the outskirts of St. Giles you can find absolutely everything: food, clubs, theaters, bookstores and shops. Don’t miss the stationery and decoration store just across the street, the Japanese Muji. In the next block there is already the beautiful British Museum.
Look, I don’t think twice: St. Giles has a great price and an even better location, there’s no way to think too much.
Many people are insecure before choosing where to stay because they would like to have as much information as possible about a certain place. To help you, these are some of the experiences I had in Europe:
