Hotels in London

Hotels in London provide outstanding accommodations in a city nicknamed “The Big Smoke”. Known for its rich history, its museums, its art galleries, its iconic landmarks, its bridges, its parks, its rivers, its fine foods, its pubs, its red buses and its black cabs, London’s most influential people include Sir Winston Churchill, Princess Diana, Charles Darwin, William Shakespeare and Sir Isaac Newton. Some things to know are that cars drive on the left, that you will save money by choosing a bus over a cab by purchasing an Oyster card, that The London Undergound, the oldest subway system in the world, is referred to as the Tube, that you may want to avoid Oxford Street and Leicester Square, and that most museums are free and best visited at night. On average, tourists spend about $200 per day in The Big Smoke. Indeed, hotels in London are some of the most brilliant in the world. Before we get to hotels in London, let’s take a look at some background information to help you along the way.

Archaeological evidence suggests that humans have been building modern structures in the London area since around 4800 BC. The first major settlement was founded by the Romans circa 43 AD. Viking influence occurred from around 820 and lasted for over 100 years. In 1066, on Christmas Day, William, Duke of Normandy was crowned King of England. Shortly thereafter, William built the Tower of London. During the Tudor period, Protestantism caused much of London property to be transferred from church to private ownership. By around 1850, London had become one of the world’s largest cities, resulting in overcrowded conditions that gave way to cholera epidemics. The Germans bombed London during World Wars I and II, causing tens of thousands of casualties, and major destruction of housings and buildings throughout the city.

The United Kingdom’s capital and largest city, London is also the largest European Union city. Situated near the Thames River, London has long been considered one of the most desirable, influential and powerful cities in the world. Also one of the world’s most visited cities, London attracts around 30 million tourists per year. Amongst London’s more than 8.5 million inhabitants, over 300 languages are spoken. Considered to have a temperate oceanic climate, London experiences warm to hot summers averaging around 75 degrees Fahrenheit in July, and cool winters averaging around 46 degrees in January. Rainy days account for almost one third of the year. Points of interest include Big Ben, Tower of London, Westminster AbbeyKew GardensGreenwichPiccadilly CircusTrafalgar SquareLondon Eye and Buckingham Palace. The city’s football teams include Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace, who all play in the English Premier League. Popular foods include fish and chips, bangers and mash, English breakfast, Sunday roast, chicken tikka masala, roast duck, scones, crumpets and sticky puddling, while drinks include gin and tonic, tea and of course beer! Now that we have some background information on the area, it’s time for hotels in London that are sure to help make for an outstanding experience.

  1. Very informative site that could possibly be the go to source for penthouse hunters.

    Very easy to navigate and written clearly and concisely so the reader and possible customer knows  exactly what they are getting for their money.

    A very good transparent service as i imagine this industry could be open to fraudsters?

    1. Thank you for your kind comments Danny! Transparency is key, absolutely, and all of the postings here are done through trust-worthy, reputable sources. Happy travels 🙂

  2. Hello,

    I usually prefer to stay in hotels as I find them more convenient but after seeing the listing you provided here believe I will check out and consider renting a penthouse the next time I am in London.

    Thank you for providing a detailed account of available penthouses in London. I have saved it to my favorites for future reference.

    Thanks

    Jody

  3. This is seriously cool!

    How do you write such awesome articles so consistently?

    My favourite is the Farringdon penthouse loft here. I lived in London for about 6 years so I know it well. But it’s so big there are still so many places I don’t have a clue about.

    What are your favourite locations?

    Thanks for sharing

    Mike

    1. Hi Mike, thank you so much! All of these accommodations are exceptional. Elephant and Castle is very unique and Fulham Chelsea is in such a prime location, full of life. Best wishes!

  4. I’m really glad I found your site! I am going to bookmark it and visit as needed in the future when I’m in the planning stage for my travels. It is on my bucket list to travel to London some day – when I finally get around to going, I know exactly where to look to find the best accommodations near the sites I will want to visit. Thanks for all the information!

    1. Thank you so much Shannon! London is an amazing city and you will truly enjoy it. Try gathering a nice group of friends/family since penthouses almost always have multiple bedrooms and the costs will be minimal once they are split!

  5. Hi I usually like to stay in the hotel. I’ve got your article very well. I can find hotel facilities there. I like the luxury of this hotel. Why would I prefer the hotel to all those hotels? If I go to London, then rent a hotel penthouse .
       So thank you very much for giving us a nice hotel article

  6. Myself and my partner have been looking into moving further into the city due to her career being based in the CBD of London, and the travel she has to go through every day. 

    The one drawback we have with it all is the congestion charge, as we don’t fully understand it’s geography yet. Out of the areas and properties you have mentioned – which are the best bet for avoiding these congestion areas?

  7. Never been to London and while travelling I usually use traditional hotels, anyway this looks sooo nice and cozy, all of them…thanks for the overview, I am thinking that spending some more money for this kind of delight is really worth it. Because I’m going to travel more (my new resolution), I’ll definitely save this page to my favorites, thanks

  8. London is one of my favorite cities to visit at any time of the year, but it can be hard to get a decent and comfortable place to overnight. Prices are high throughout the city, so why not spend a little extra and add some fond memories of the time you had? This is the attitude I always take when planning for where to stay.

    I did not think of adding in London to my list of penthouse options but after looking through the reviews of the ones you have ferreted out for readers, I most certainly am going to do so now. The prices are not that unreasonable considering the accommodation and the locations.

    There are some really prime penthouses that are available, and I did check out a couple just to see if they were available and what they would cost. Based on this, I would say it might be best to plan as far ahead as possible and booking to make sure you get what you want and when you want. 

    Thanks for the great tips and ideas on where to stay, I have definitely bookmarked this page and made a note in my journal too so I can find your site and article again quickly! 

    1. Hi Dave, absolutely, planning as far ahead as possible is definitely advised as this will keep the cost lower and will ensure best availability. Thank you for the comments and for bookmarking the page for future reference!

  9. Hello there. I saw all the penthouses and they look great. But my choice is restricted to 2 penthouses because of my dietary habits.

    First is the West Hempstead Penthouse and second is the Central London Penthouse. They have nearby vegetarian restaurants (I’m a vegan but I think they will be able to serve me).

    Because the Central London Penthouse has a circus nearby, I think I will go there. What a better way to relax than to visit the circus?!

    Very good article. Keep up the good work. Have a nice day.

  10. I love your IMAGES! Stunning! 

    They make me want to go and visit London. Also, I love that I can discover the area right away being on a page.

    Are you planning to cover other areas of the UK, especially because of such interest to the royal family?

    Thank you very much for such a fantastic tour with the “Engrish” flavor!

  11. Travel and seeing the sites. A really nice way to go about that in a comfortable manner. All corners of the world accommodate the natural magnificence with great architecture and design. Breath taking views are always there, even if going back to a place you’ve been before. Pricings for these ventures are presented in good fashion and are very reasonable from continent to continent.

  12. Hi,

    Wow! These places look great. I hadn’t really thought about renting a posh apartment for a stay in London before. I have usually stayed in hotels. I really like the way you have highlighted everything in the vicinity of each property, this is really useful information and guests will find invaluable.

  13. I live in the UK but in a more rural part up north, London is a very nice place but is also luxury so you need money to spend time there.

    I have actually thought of going to London a few times just to have a little break, the hotels you have mentioned all look great however the prices are steep so it looks like I would need to bring a few friends along. The rent for those hotels is nearly the same price as my monthly rent here which is nuts.

    However, you are paying for a great experience and good quality so I will have to consider it If and when I travel to London in the future.

    Thanks,

    Josh

    1. Josh thank you for the insights from northern UK. If you are able to gather some friends please do keep these in mind for your travel to London

  14. Thanks for sharing the London penthouse. They all look great. Depending on the objectives you want to visit, you can choose. But I really liked the one on the water’s edge (maybe because I’m Scorpio, water sign lol) Waterfront Penthouse
    19 Western Gateway 72 Aegean Apts. I entered the link and read including host information.penthause

  15. I see there are quite a lot of beautiful spent houses in London and all of them are just perfect but I couldn’t help but fall in love with the Royal Docks penthouse, it is exactly what I would want to make a perfect holiday in England. The only thing I may be a lil upset about would be the fact that there is no TV or maybe you just skipped that part. Otherwise with free WiFi everything is sorted I won’t bother anyone at all and will enjoy the most attracting feature of the penthouse which is the river view.

  16. London a very fascinating City with lot of ideas and opportunities to make money,but one problem there is have a fairly cheap and comfortable place to stay….but for the like of the rich once there are some very good penthouse  and hotels that one can stay in especially the ones you listed I stayed in London for few weeks and at that I stayed at the Fulham Chelsea penthouse I must tell you it cheap and very comfortable when next I am going I plan to stay at the W1 Penthouse with Terrace(University of London)

  17. Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful article with us and your article was interesting and informative. I have got a lot of information about  Hotels in London England. Honestly, I have never before received such wonderful information in such a pleasant environment and I have never been to London, but I found your article to be valuable information and I very much like to go to London and I will be visiting London with my family after a few days. Can you help me? I benefited from the valuable information you provided by reading your article and I think other people like me will benefit from reading your article. I have bookmarked your website so that I can come back to your website later and thank you again for sharing such a beautiful post with us and I wish you good health.

    1. Md glad to be of help to you and your family in regard to hotels in London England. Thank you for the comments and best wishes and good health to you and yours as well 🙂

  18. Many thanks to you for sharing such an excellent article with us .I love fencing a lot, and from that I went to London a month ago .I was up there at The Penthouse and I found it very comfortable and attractive .There are free WiFi, furnished kitchen, flat screen TV room, restaurant, etc. which I liked very much and the food here and I liked it very much. The decoration tow here is quite nice .I think The Penthouse is the best I have ever had to visit in the city of London .

    For everyone’s sake, anyone visiting London should definitely come here and I think I would love to have a new experience.

  19. Thank you so much for sharing with us such a beautiful article. I am glad to see your article. I am going to bookmark it because in the month ahead my brother is going to London. My brother is going to London the first time so I think your article will benefit my brother a lot. I will definitely show him, your article. I think he will find a lot of information from your article about London hotels. My favorite is the Farringdon penthouse loft here. I like it. I think my brother would like it a lot. Thanks.

  20. I know I have read about some other destinations and the hostels and hotels you have recommended so far. Sincerely speaking, London is my number one city I wish to visit. I have had so many persons visit London from my area. I currently have one of school friend there, she traveled last week and I can see her updates on WhatsApp.

    These ones you have recommended are beautiful and look good to me with all my needs intact but I’d probably travel alone so the first one looks more suitable and affordable for me.

  21. I love the way you started by telling us a brief history of London. This gives some insightful knowledge about where we tend to visit at least. Sometimes lodging in a hotel when on vacation can be very expensive. I can tell from my several travels.

    I’m glad you came up with penthouse rentals that could help us save money. This is awesome. I’ve never thought of that. I’ve not been to London for quite some years now, but I’ll be making preparations this year fall. I’ll definitely look into this to see which is best for me.

  22. thank you so much for sharing, I have been planning a trip to London for quite some time, I am now just waiting for travel restrictions to allow for travel. I must say that I love ZeitGeist Penthouse, the decor is absolutely beautiful, a little on the pricey side but sharing with a friend will make all the more possible.
