Quality London accommodation at a reasonable price - Z Soho

It's no secret that London is one of the UK's top city break destinations. In fact there's so much to do in the English capital, you could easily spend longer discovering the city. One of the biggest difficulties many people have when planning a visit to London is finding quality accommodation at a reasonable price. I recently stumbled upon a hotel that I think ticks both of those boxes. 

When I checked the website, I could find a smaller room without a window for just £66, and although the prices do rise for larger rooms and last minute bookings, I reckon you could get a real bargain here by booking up in advance. When I've paid around £100 for cheap London hotels in the past, I've always had a poor experience (awful single rooms, shared bathrooms etc.), but it seems this newly opened hotel is offering something others can't.

As well as an en-suite wet room in each room; you can expect complimentary Thierry Mugler toiletries; 40" HD televisions, free Sky programming (including the bonus of Sky Sports and Sky Movie channels), an iPod docking station, and free Wi-Fi. Despite all of these mod cons, I think one of the best things about this hotel is the individual temperature control in each room - most budget hotel rooms I've stayed in are either far too hot, or freezing cold!

The Z Hotel Soho has everything you need for a few nights in town, and its central location is just perfect for exploring the city. Step outside and you're immediately in the buzz of London's West End, with theatres; Chinatown, and the shops and street theatre of Covent Garden on your doorstep. Charing Cross Station is a five minute taxi ride away, and you're just minutes from the Piccadilly, Northern and Central underground lines.

If you're looking for a great value hotel and are willing to accept the fact that your room will be small, then I challenge you to find a better option than the Z Hotel Soho. As their website says, this is designer label without the designer price tag.

Top Tip: Due to the central location, some guests have reported hearing noise in their rooms, so take ear plugs - it has to be said though, that I would recommend this for a stay in any London hotel!

  1. Would certainly use this hotel when next in London. Rooms look quite
    small but if you are visiting London you are out most of the day and
    probably only use the room for showering and sleeping. It looks done to
    a really good standard, and is in a good location.
