Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Really there are two central Londons: the buzzy West End and, east of it, the financial district of the City, so there's plenty to choose from when looking for somewhere convenient to stay. Within the West End are districts as diverse as Soho and Mayfair. The former was once a marginal area of dodgy clubs and brothels, but is now London’s entertainment epicentre, with iconic long-established pubs and buzzing new restaurants. The latter playin ghost to luxury shops, exclusive restaurants and some of the country’s most expensive property. Most of the capital's top hotels are clustered in this area, but don’t discount the rest on our list – for price, location and style, we think they’re the best hotels in central London.
