Cheap hotels in London: Premier Inn hotel chain

If you are looking for a hotel in London, I have to highlight the Premier Inn hotel chain . It is a chain of hotels with simple rooms and breakfast included, but they are very well priced and very well located in London. We usually recommend these hotels, as we believe they are among the best we can find in London if we take quality-price into account. Plus, bed and breakfast for those under 16 is free, so they’re perfect if you’re planning to visit London with kids .

Our favorites by location are the following:

  • Waterloo: Located just behind the London Eye. From here you can walk to the London Eye, Big Ben and central London with no problem. It is in an area where you will find cafes and restaurants. Nearest tube: Waterloo, zone 1.
  • County Hall: In the heart of London, next to the London Eye, a few meters from the first one we have recommended! Nearest tube: Waterloo or Westminster, zone 1.
