If you have decided to spend this festive season in London, you need to book a suitable hotel to enjoy a comfortable stay. London offers a vast variety of accommodation catering to all types of travellers and it could be a bit of challenge, deciding which to stay at.
The best place to stay while in London is central London where all the action is. There are fine selections of hotels in the area like the Park Grand Hotels London, which are ideally situated at key locations in the city.
A good option would be the Park Grand London Lancaster Gate hotel, which is family friendly, offers excellent facilities and amenities and wallet friendly too.
Some of the things to look out when choosing a hotel are:
Location: Without a doubt, the location of the property is the key aspect to consider when choosing a hotel to stay in London. While there may be cheaper options in the outer areas of the city and its suburbs, the fact is that having to commute long distances for business or sightseeing could become a challenge. The amount you will spend on transport will amount to about the same price you will pay for staying in a boutique hotel in central London. The benefit of staying directly within the centre of the city is you will be close to the top attractions as well as save on transport expenses.
Go direct: If you want to save money and get the best prices it is best to avoid a third party site and book directly at the hotel website. When you book through an OTA the best price that is offered includes the commission of the OTA, so you will not actually be benefiting much. On the other hand, if you directly book at the website you will get a better deal and could even negotiate and ask for a few additional perks.
Amenities: If you are on a business trip with just wanting a place to sleep in the night or not too fussy about having a hotel with top class amenities, you could opt for a hotel that offers just the basics. Contrastingly if you are on holiday and want to indulge and pamper yourself by staying in comfort a boutique hotel is the best choice. They come with a variety of useful amenities including complimentary perks, free Wi-Fi, gym, a 24/7 concierge etc. You can only expect these from staying in a luxury boutique hotel in London.
