There are five easyHotels in London with another opening soon on Old Street, so there's plenty of choice location-wise, even if they all look the same on the inside. The rooms are basic and you can expect some orange in there, although this has been toned down. Prices from £25 but remember the earlier you book the cheaper you pay!
Budget business hotel group Mint Hotels, formerly City Inn have two London properties including the brand spanking new Mint Hotel Tower of London. Room rates start at £160 but that includes free WiFi, mini mac and a host of other facilities in the rooms, stuff you'd normally pay a lot more for.
They may not be supersexy, but Travelodges are a great choice for cheap and clean accommodation. The hotels are everywhere, with 22 of them in London alone. The rooms are pretty non-descript but contain bed, TV, bathroom and tea and coffee. And with rooms from £19 what’s not to like?
This one was recommended to us by a friend and it looks and sounds like it could be a winner. The Arosfa Hotel is located near Russell Square a short walk from Oxford Street. There are only 17 rooms, and they were renovated three years ago. All rooms have bed, bathroom, free WiFi, TVs, and complimentary fresh fruit, tea and coffee. Rates start at £82.
