The British Museum sits between two of central London’s key neighbourhoods: Bloomsbury (for literary heritage and Georgian houses) and Covent Garden (for shops and theatres). But hotels in this area are also conveniently placed for Fitzrovia and Soho, where you’ll find a raft of top-notch restaurants (Hakkasan, for high-end Cantonese, is enduringly popular, while there are constant queues for the Japanese Ramen served at Kanada-Ya on St Giles High Street). The majority of accommodation in this zone is B&B or four-stars, with a scattering of hostels and a few rather tired three-stars. Here’s our pick of the best hotels near the British Museum.
