If you're into your burtalism (you know, funky window positioning, concrete and stuff) then this is the temporary home for you. Welcome to a Grade II-listed building, designed by famed British Architect Patrick Hodgkinson in the mid sixties, building started in 1967 and finished in 1972. The building is known as the Brunswick Centre, this angular structure juts out over the streets of Bloomsbury on one side, while overlooking its own collection of shops, restaurants and more on the other. Previously it was a row of Georgian-era terraces which had become a little run down. Anyway, if that hasn't stolen your heart – at this location (right next to Russell Square station) you're within walking distance of the British Museum, and the West End. All of the things! There's room for up to 11 people at this abode too, so it’s ideal for larger groups (or a lot of person space).
London is a wondrous city with many excellent attributes, but being cheap ain’t one of them. We have a tip. If you’re thinking of spending a couple of nights in "the Big Smoke", you should give Airbnb a browse – chances are it'll be far better value than a hotel or B&B, especially if you're going with a larger group. And maybe nicer! Whether you want to be on the doorstep of the West End's theatres and attractions, or thriving in the buzzing hipsterland that is the East End, we’ve rounded up the best of the best Airbnbs in London for you to take a butcher’s hook at (that’s Cockney rhyming slang for ’look‘, btw). These houses go from simple convenience to stunning locations, lavish opulent sixteen-guest pent houses and even historical houses (including one on the same street that three of the Rolling Stones).
