Many of those are lined with affordable hotels, making the area one of the best for a central London stay. Here’s our selection of the best cheap hotels in and around Euston.

Ten cheap hotels in Euston

Jenkins Hotel

Hotels B&Bs Bloomsbury

This nice Georgian family-run B&B hotel has been a hotel for nearly a century, though it was refurbished in 2013 and has everything you’d expect in terms of amenities, including free Wi-Fi and tea- and coffee-making facilities. The buffet breakfast is free too and the location, overlooking Cartwright Gardens in Bloomsbury, is as convenient as it is pretty, and handy for both Bloomsbury and King’s Cross. Basic rooms start at £70. Sister establishment the Judd Hotel next door (link to Kings X) offers guests access to tennis courts and slightly more elegant, stylish décor.

Ambassadors Bloomsbury

Hotels Euston

This elegant 100-roomed Bloomsbury hotel offers amazing value with rooms from £70 which are modern, clean and comfortable, and feature contemporary wetrooms. They all come with great amenities too, including Nespresso machines, 40in TVs, iPod docking station, Gilchrist & Soames toiletries, laptop-sized room safes and AC. There’s a gym, bar & restaurant on site, and a good free continental breakfast with a range of hot items. A top choice at a rock-bottom price.


Academy Hotel

Hotels Bloomsbury

Set on Gower Street so within easy reach of both Euston to the north and the West End/Covent Garden border to the south, the Academy consists of five Grade II-listed Georgian houses filled with rooms that mix restrained country-house florals and traditional décor with intellectual sophistication – as befits Bloomsbury’s studious yet decadent history. A library and conservatory (and even some of the rooms) open onto a pretty walled garden where full English breakfast is served in summer. Double rooms start at less than £100.

The Level at Melia White House

Hotels Regent’s Park

The imposing façade of this elegant 1930s former apartment block promises something special, and doesn’t disappoint. Beyond the doors, spaces and rooms (including apartments with fully equipped kitchens) are traditionally smart and well designed, retaining some original features (check out the wood-panelled bar) and offering free buffet breakfast, Wi-Fi, flatscreen TVs, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. There’s a gym and two restaurants, and the location, within walking distance of not just Euston (13 minutes away) but Madame Tussauds and Regent’s Park, makes it a real steal at around £115.


The Penn Club

Hotels B&Bs Bloomsbury

There’s a distinctly ascetic air to the Quaker-owned (and not-for-profit) Penn Club, whose 45 old-fashioned bedrooms are spartan but all equipped with the standard amenities, including tea & coffee making facilities, desk, hair dryer, daily housekeeping service (except budget rooms) and free Wi-Fi. Some have pretty garden views too. Doubles with shared bathrooms start from around £100, full English breakfast comes free and there’s a cosy lounge filled with books – which you may want to make use of as there are no TVs in the rooms.

The Judd Hotel

Hotels B&Bs Bloomsbury

At the other end of the crescent from the Harlinford, this Bloomsbury stalwart occupies two Georgian townhouses overlooking the same gardens and offers homely, comfortable rooms with modern bathrooms and everything you’d expect in terms of amenities, including free Wi-Fi. The hot buffet breakfast is free too, and served in a light-filled modern dining room. Rooms are around £100 per double, but nearby sister hotel Jenkins (link to Kings X cheap hotels feature), offers even cheaper options. Guests have access to both Cartwright Gardens opposite the hotel, and the nearby tennis courts.


Harlingford Hotel

Hotels Boutique hotels Bloomsbury

Set on a Regency crescent straight out of Oliver!, the affordable Harlinford (doubles start at around £115) has tons of charm, with light, Scandi-style rooms that clearly have boutique aspirations, dotted as they are with bold touches of colour in bathroom fittings and bedroom textiles. Continental or full English breakfast is free, as is Wi-Fi, and guests have access to a private garden and tennis court. Euston is a seven-minute walk away.

Astor Museum Hostel

With a fantastic location in the heart of Bloomsbury and literally a stone’s throw (even a chunky ancient one) from the British Museum, this hostel for those aged 18 to 40 is a steal, especially with beds starting at £19 and double rooms at £80. Its dorm rooms, which sleep four to 16 people, are simply styled with red metal bunks and eggshell-blue walls; female-only dorms are available, and a number of private rooms are in the adjacent Georgian terrace building. Shared spaces – all with free Wi-Fi – include a bright kitchen/dining area, a comfy lounge and an outdoor terrace. It’s a 15-minute walk to Euston, but two minutes from Holborn.


Grange Beauchamp Hotel

With doubles from around £80 a night, this 4-star hotel combines modern design with refined elegance. Location – near Russell Square and the British Museum – is great, and a fair number of the 46 light and pleasant guest rooms have garden views; all have marble bathrooms and free Wi-Fi. The complimentary buffet breakfast is served in the in-house restaurant or garden, and the usual range of services includes paid-for access to the health club and spa facilities at nearby sister hotel the Grange Holborn (though the Oasis Sports Centre is nearly as close, and cheaper).


Just south of Euston, an 8-minute way away, this enjoyable Bloomsbury hotel is handy for both the British Museum and the Piccadilly tube line. The rooms are pretty and many have lovely views over Tavistock Square. What’s more, there’s free Wi-Fi and complimentary breakfast (full English or continental), as well as two bars, a restaurant and an Indian fast food shop. The Imperial chain has a number of other options in the area, most of them with doubles from under £100 (including the more old-school Royal National, which offers access to a health club with concessionary rates for guests), and if you’re willing to fork out a bit more, its boutique Morton Hotel is a delight.
