From famous sites, to history, sports, shopping, and nightlife, the constantly evolving city of London can cater to the varied interests of every type of visitor.

Central London

At any accommodation you choose in Central London, you will be steps away from the city’s most popular attractions. If you are keen on value-for-money accommodation in Central London, book your stay at The Trafalgar Hotel in Trafalgar Square or the Amba Hotel Charing Cross at The Strand. You may also want to consider Hotel Café Royal on Regent Street or the Sofitel London St. James hotel at Waterloo Place for mid-range budget accommodation. For a truly unique experience, stay at The Courthouse Hotel, situated in an old courthouse, where you can dine inside 3 of the original prison cells. In addition to the old-world and one-of-a-kind experience, you are a stone’s throw away from the shopping paradise of Bond Street, Regent Street and Carnaby Street. Visitors looking for the ultimate luxury should stay at 51 Buckingham Gate, Taj Suites and Residences hotel which has its own butler service, Michelin-starred restaurant, spa and a stunning courtyard. The location is minutes away from Buckingham Palace.
