Places to Stay: Budget Rooms and Hotels

Thinking of making a trip to see us but don’t want to spend a fortune?

Although for many people ‘London’ is synonymous with ‘extortionate room rates’ there are many places to stay in the city that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Newington Green is a precious sweet spot in the city, where there’s enough travel connections to the rest of the city, plenty of trendy places to eat and the room rates at hotels are considerably cheaper than competitors just a mile closer to the centre.

You might find that some of these establishments don’t offer the kind of luxury on offer at other hotels in the city, but if all you’re looking for is a clean bed and a room that you feel comfortable leaving your belongings in then they’ll do:

Beresford Road London Rooms

Reviews consistently praise hostess Jackie who communicates with guests clearly before their arrival. The rooms are repeatedly commented on as being ‘spartan’, but for the price that is paid most felt that they received good value – best for a short stay.
