Our choice of the best hotels in Greenwich gives you access to an area that’s had royal and seafaring connections since medieval times, with a stellar collection of palatial buildings to show for it. Visitors with an interest in maritime and royal history need stray no further than the riverfront and handsome Greenwich Park behind it, home to the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Observatory and the Inigo Jones designed Queen’s House.

Those in search of refreshment (classier chain restaurants plus any number of bars and cafés) and crafty collectibles are charmed by the market and surrounding streets. For hipper fare, head east to Greenwich’s more piratical neighbour, Deptford.

De Vere Venue Devonport House

icon-location-pin Greenwich
An extremely popular wedding venue, the Devonport’s stately façade and inspiring location hard by the National Maritime Museum and Greenwich Park are a gift for event photographers and tourists. It occupies a cluster of buildings that used to be part of the Royal Naval College, and its decor is in the clean-cut, inoffensive style favoured by conference centres – there are many meeting rooms. Comfortable, spacious and a little corporate, for a decent price.

Mercure London Greenwich Hotel

icon-location-pin Deptford Bridge

Formerly a police station, this striking building, which earned a RIBA design award in 1946, was recently saved from dereliction by local celebrity Lady Delves Broughton. It now rejoices in its reputation as Greenwich’s first boutique hotel, and its situation in the coveted Ashburnham Conservation area. The deluxe bedrooms in the glass-roofed extension have splendid views over London, and the Oasis O1 bar is glitzy. Event-goers and performers from The O2 Arena in nearby North Greenwich get preferential rates.

Mitre Hotel

icon-location-pin Greenwich
Deceptively spacious, this pub, an eighteenth-century coaching house with walled courtyard, manages to tuck away 24 neatly appointed and comfortable rooms. Sport on the telly means there’s usually a congenial atmosphere, and the pub occupies a jolly position in the heart of Greenwich, making it a good place to meet locals. Beer from Greenwich-based brewery Meantime, about a mile away, is on tap and the Sunday roasts are pretty good. Breakfast is included in the rates.

St Christopher's Greenwich

icon-location-pin Greenwich
One of a small chain of five backpacker hostels in London, this bargain accommodation near Greenwich railway station has the added attraction of a lively sports bar, Belushi’s, downstairs, where guests can claim 25 percent off the big cooked breakfasts if the free ‘buffet style’ one for patrons doesn’t do the job. Sleeping in a dorm costs about £10 (there are men’s, women’s and mixed in various sizes); private doubles are also available.

Staycity Aparthotels Greenwich High Road

icon-location-pin Deptford Bridge
There are 68 serviced apartments with kitchenettes, optional lounge areas with sofa beds, and one or two bedrooms in this little block on Greenwich High Road, but if they’re booked up, there’s another Staycity block down the road at Deptford Bridge. The apartments are bright, clean and comfortable, and a fine choice for family groups who want to make full use of all that child-friendly Greenwich has to offer the little’uns.

Greenwich area guide

Greenwich is the home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and the Prime Meridian of the world, but that doesn't mean the line of longitude is the only notable thing about the area. Greenwich features some great restaurants, which celebrate the history of the area and museums that make seemingly mundane topics fascinating.
