What with the traffic and Congestion Charge (an £11.50 daily charge if you drive within the zone between 7am and 6pm, Monday to Friday), you need to think seriously about the best hotels for parking when visiting London. If you do need one, car parks such as NCP and JustPark can be useful and are all over the city, including at Bloomsbury, Holborn, Strand and Euston. Hotels in Zone 3 and beyond are likely to offer free parking, but for those looking for central London hotels with either free or paid parking, here are our top ten.

The best hotels with parking in London

  • Hotels
  • B&Bs
  • King’s Cross

Book ahead for the valet parking service here where, for £20 to £30, you can have your car parked securely in an underground car park. And if you decide to venture further afield, the family-run B&B’s proximity to St Pancras station means that you can take the Eurostar to Europe easily. Rooms start at £70 and include tea and coffee-making facilities, cable TV, wifi and full English breakfast (all free). Some rooms are en suite, others have shared bathrooms.

  • Soho

You’ll have a devilish time getting to it in a car, but once you do, the Ham Yard, in the heart of Soho, offers valet parking at £50 for 24 hours. Mind you, you probably won’t want to leave once you’ve checked into one of the 91 generously sized rooms and suites, where floor-to-ceiling-length windows overlook the leafy courtyard or across the London skyline. Room facilities include a Nespresso machine, digital radio and iPod player, and the hotel has a spa, air-locked gym, and the excellent Ham Yard Bar and Restaurant, as well as a theatre and a 1950s-style bowling alley.

  • Mayfair

Valet parking costs £40 for 24 hours at the elegant five-star Beaumont, where rooms are Art Deco in style, with marble bathrooms, sliding screens that isolate beds from bathrooms, and Nespresso machines. Some rooms have balconies and services include free soft drinks, movies and shoeshines, plus a spa with hammam. There’s an elegant lounge bar off the foyer, and breakfast is served in the 1920s-style Colony Room.

Qbic Hotel

  • Whitechapel

Qbic has its own car park just outside the Congestion Charge zone, at only £12 per day with charging points for electric cars. There are 171 modular ‘cubi’ rooms, with rain showers and free wifi, in a central, but down-at-heel part of the East End. Self-service check-in and the free snack breakfasts keep prices low – rooms start at £67, pricier options have the benefit of a park view – and staff are on hand in the snappy looking lobby.

Limited parking of just 15 spaces is on a first-come first-served basis, at £40 per night, but if you miss out, there’s an NCP car park five minutes’ walk away. Right on the Thames, with river views, Mondrian is hip to the max. Post-modern deco style rooms are designed by Tom Dixon, and public areas are playfully ship-themed. Ground floor Sea Containers restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and there’s a fabulous glass cube roof bar, as well as a spa and Curzon-run cinema.

  • Battersea

Yes it’s in Battersea, but that means no crossing central London if you’re driving in from Gatwick or Heathrow, and when you arrive you get on-site parking at £15 per night, with a free shuttle service into the centre.  Floor-to-ceiling windows offering riverside views are just one of the features; others include modern rooms with spacious bathrooms and coffee-making facilities (£1 per pod) plus a spa, gym and the Banyan restaurant serving international food.

Doubletree at Hilton, Excel

There are 40-50 complimentary car parking spaces at this handy conference centre spot, and if the car park is full, there’s another pay-and-display nearby with charges of £12 per day. Just over a mile from City Airport, and close to the Excel Centre, Doubletree’s modern rooms, some with river views, have all the usual amenities as well as free wifi, and tea and coffee-making facilities. Hotel facilities include a fitness centre, an on-site Italian restaurant, plus a brasserie and bar.
