London offers a whole array of possibilities in terms of accommodation, ranging from hostels to superior luxury hotels.
Accommodation prices are subject to changes throughout the year, so that, hotel rooms will be definitely cheaper during the fall-winter time, when you could also find lovely room at affordable prices, representing very good value for money. If you are, instead, considering to spend time in London in the summer time, namely from June to September, be ready to pay higher hotels rates and be sure to book your rooms well in advance.
Hotels in London are located everywhere across the city, so that you could first better decide in which area you’d like to spend your stay in London, and, then, narrow your hotel search within the area in which you have decided to stay.
If you want to stay within zone 1, Bayswater, Kensington, Paddington, Victoria and Earl’s Court definitely are amongst the most attractive and strategic areas within which narrow your search. All of these areas offer you excellent public transport services and lot of amenities.
The other problem relates to the quantity and variety of the continental breakfast. You should usually be ready to get a couple of toasts, butter and jam, orange juice, cereals and coffee or tea.
If you are expected to be served croissants or “real” coffee you’d be surely disappointed, in that, in the largest number of cases you won’t.
In particular, as for the coffee, some hotels are even used to serve you just hot water, you could, then, be supposed that they misunderstood your order, but actually it is because you simply have to add instant coffee powder to get your coffee ready.
