London has hundreds of hotels ranging from two-star to five-star. The prices can range from very reasonable to very expensive.
Here are five hotels in London UK ranging from budget hotels to luxury hotels.
The 5 star Dorchester Hotel sits in what must be the most enviable location in London, at the centre of Mayfair and just across the road from Hyde Park‘s manicured loveliness. This has always been the ‘It’ hotel of socialites down through the years, as it is renowned for its exceptionally high standards of service. Its sumptuous décor transports one back to the sophistication of the 1930s, while never compromising on the modern luxuries and facilities that ensure its continued popularity. It provides ample, gorgeously decorated guestrooms and suites while the recently renovated Dorchester Spa will help you to relax and unwind with afternoon tea. There is also a choice of on site bars and restaurants to choose from, such as Alain Ducasse, China Tang, The Grill and The Promenade.
At the 4 star Kenilworth, now know as Radisson Blu Edwardian, Kenilworth, the priority is to make its customers feel like royalty, with first class service from the minute you walk through the door. The hotel’s ambience is influenced by its Chinese and Cambodian objet d’art and bouquets of exotic blooms. Meanwhile, the guestrooms exude luxury; each is slightly different from the next, with wardrobes and beds made from African walnut, curtains made from silk and Dixon Turner pictures. The Sicilian Carrara marble en suite bathrooms offer Jacob Delafon accessories.
The 3 star Hotel Ibis Earls Court occupies the ideal location in West London for visitors, as it faces Earls Court Exhibition Centre, while just 2 minutes down the road is West Brompton station. The Earls Court station (from which you can access the District and Piccadilly Lines) is only five minutes away on foot, while it is a mere ten minute stroll from Stamford Bridge football ground. Its 504 guestrooms provide air conditioning, pay-per-view films, direct dial modem point and hairdryer. A spacious conference and exhibition hall with maximum capacity for 1200 persons is also available, along with a restaurant, bar and an enclosed paid car park.
The 2 star Hotel Ibis Excel-Docklands is probably one of the best value for money hotels in London’s East. It is right beside Royal Victoria Dock and only 150 metres away from the Excel Exhibition Centre. It is very convenient for guests attending events at the O2 Arena, as it is just down the road, while in just 30 minutes you can be in Central London. The University of East London, Canary Wharf and fascinating Greenwich are also nearby. The Docklands Light Railway goes past the hotel, while the nearest airport is the very convenient London City Airport.
The neighbours of the Central Park Hotel are the splendid Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. Its 257 guestrooms all have en suite bathrooms and are fully equipped with all the conveniences that one could ask for. The resident restaurant provides a daily Carte du Jour. The Central Park Hotel hosts conferences, meetings, wedding receptions and dinner parties, and is very close to Paddington Station. Here, one can catch the London Heathrow Express, which departs every 15 minutes. Queensway and Bayswater Underground are only five minutes from the hotel on foot. The prime shopping and eating area of Queensway, with late night stores, cultivated eateries and acclaimed Whiteleys Shopping Centre, is just a short walk away.
