The Best Hotels in London
Living in London evidently has its perks. A busy successful city means there is an impressive range of luxurious hotels and spa facilities to take advantage of. Even if you reside in London, it’s always a nice treat to stay a night in a fancy hotel with outstanding facilities as this is always a necessity which goes hand in hand with the hustle and bustle of the city. There comes a time where you just need to unwind, relax and I have a list of the best hotels in London to do just that!
1. The May Fair Hotel London ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The May Fair Hotel is situated in the heart of Mayfair, surrounded by the parks, theatres and attractions of London’s West End. There is free Wi-Fi in all areas, a private theatre, and a 24-hour business centre.
The May Fair’s bedrooms features elegant, contemporary décor, decadent Italian marble bathrooms and luxury beds with down pillows and 350 thread count Egyptian cotton bedding. All are equipped with free high-speed WiFi and Samsung TVs offering up to 300 channels in multiple languages. In selected suites, iPad’s are provided for guests to browse the hotel’s services and menus before ordering.
The May Fair Kitchen offers a menu of Mediterranean style sharing plates and afternoon tea. There is a DJ three nights a week and guests enjoy daytime coffee at the The May Fair Bar, located across the lobby, and cocktails in the evening. The May Fair Terrace provides an open-air enclave for drinks and cigars. the afternoon tea served at the May Fair is apparently the best afternoon tea served in London. Many of my friends who have had a range of afternoon tea experiences have agreed with this fact too. Afternoon tea can be booked target=”_blank”>here
Guests can also find a 3-D cinema, tranquil May Fair Spa, 24 hour gym and adjoining Palm Beach Casino at this hotel.
Another benefit of staying at the May Fair is that you are in the centre of everything. Oxford street is ten minutes away and no doubt you will be within walking distance of many West End shows. This area is great for shopping, with popular brands nearby: Cartier, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Tiffany & Co, Prada and many high street outlets too.
There are some celebrity hotspots around this area where you will be sure to spot the likes of David Beckham, Cheryl Cole, Little Mix, Prince Harry, One Direction and many more. They hang out in Mahiki and Hush Bar. Make sure you wear your best clothes and put your name on the guest list before arrival.
Price: €400 a night (Well worth it)

This hotel is very central and the suite I stayed in was very large. It is ideal if you are planning on visiting the tourist attractions such as The London Eye, The Houses of Parliament or Big Ben. Lambeth is a great choice for travellers interested in city walks, monuments and history.
Price: €200 a night
The Me Hotel is a popular choice of Sarah Hashcroft a famous London Blogger from Buckinghamshire. Everyone familiar with London will know the ME hotel as STK is underneath it and my favourite the Radio Rooftop bar is next door. Lately, the king and queen of Spain stayed in the ME hotel for a night. Why not make the most of your trip to London and treat yourself.
Price: €350 a night
