Any history buff or those with an eye for brutalist architecture will jump at the chance to kip in this Grade II-listed building, which was designed by Patrick Hodgkinson in the late ’60s. Otherwise 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 and restaurants on the other. Here, you're within walking distance of the British Museum, and the West End. You're also right next to Russell Square tube station. All of the things! There's room for up to 11 people too, so it’s a top spot for larger parties.
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).
