Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.

  • And quite an old one at that. Definitely showing its age I'm afraid but it's functional and for exhibitions and conferences is ok.  more »

  • Visited for the Ideal Home Show. Enjoyed the day out but would have loved a few professional garden displays and larger show houses to look around. Couldn't believe how tiny the starter flats really were. That aside, the show was very good. Lots of ideas taken home and really enjoyed the live music!
  • Olympia London is an enormous building with plenty of space for events, I have visited the Ideal Home Show for a few years and it houses so many stalls and exhibitions. You will really enjoy spending a whole day at Olympia, there is so much to see and explore, you won't get bored. It is a great day out for families, friends and even for business networking. I would highly recommend visiting and make sure you look out for free Ideal Home Show tickets online! There is plenty of parking spaces and a few yards from the Station.
  • Great events venue, close to main sights of London and plenty of hotels. There is parking on site but it does reflect London parking prices so recommending using public transport, bus route stops outside the overground station right next door. Number of food stalls inside expo but no where near enough seating.
  • Very noisy acoustics and extremely limited catering options. Simple sandwich in a plastic wrapper and a very small bottle of apple juice was over £7. If the tube shuttle isn't working it's quite a walk from the nearest tube station and the operating hours of the shuttle seen vague and the reality doesn't always match what's published.
  • It's hard to rate something that is essentially a shell to be molded by the exhibitor. That being said, even with new security checks the entrance queues were quick and the toilets clean. A nice big space for exhibitions although the built in food offerings are a little lacking when you're hungry.
