Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
The West End – aka the heart of London – spans Covent Garden to Regent Street, and Euston Road to the Thames (though no one can agree on its exact definition). It's synonymous with entertainment and it’s where you’ll find everything from celeb-magnet restaurants to perfect post-work pubs, as well as much of the city’s best shopping. And yes, when it comes to the best hotels, those with deep pockets are well catered for in the West End, but so too are those on backpacker budgets if you know where to look (that's where we come in). Here's our pick of the best hotels in and around the West End.
