The best hotels near Somerset House
Hidden away off Fleet Street in a quiet courtyard, this is a smart, stylish choice in a handsome red-brick building. There’s a sophisticated European vibe to the place, partly due to the sleek contemporary design – notable for its use of rich colours, boldly patterned carpets and funky light fittings. There’s a chic restaurant and bar too, with seating in the secluded courtyard. You can walk to Somerset House (or St Paul’s, in the other direction) in ten minutes.
The City outpost of this budget chain (there are five other sites in London) has a brilliant location on Fleet Street, in an ex-office building near Temple Church. At this price, who cares if the rooms are small and there’s no phone or proper wardrobe… they’re clean-lined and modern, with en suite shower and a large TV with Sky Sports and Movies, and range in size from single to family. Cheapest are the windowless ‘inside’ rooms.
Premier Inn’s Hub concept is aimed at tech-savvy budget travellers. Download the app to your phone or tablet and you’re all set, from booking your room to controlling the temperature, to working out what to do nearby. Rooms are compact but well-designed with under-bed storage and an en suite shower, and there’s an on-site café and lounge. This branch (there are four others in London) is superbly located, opposite the ENO, with Covent Garden and Soho on your doorstep.
