So many of the lower-priced hotels in London are a grave disppointment for those that stay in them as well as an embarassmentto to their London hosts and so I was delighted to be able to recommend some Japanese guests to the City Inn and find it absolutely first class. A huge bright atrium / lobby, friendly and efficient staff and exceptionally clean, new and well-appointed rooms. There is also a most attractive cafe on the side through which one can walk to the Thames and the neighbouring Tate Gallery (the uglily renamed 'Tate Britain'). Prices fluctuate widely according to the day as well as the season (I booked through the excellent LondonTown website: http://www.londontown.com/) but at most prices, this is a rare find - a budget-priced London hotel that you wouldn't be ashamed to put your in-laws in....

dmj1962, 29 October 2007: Thank you - an excellent tip, and not a bad location either (although not terribly close to the Underground). As you say, it is very hard to recommend anything reasonably priced in London with any confidence.
Reasonably priced for London, and usually there are special offers especially over weekends. Nice and quiet location, but within quick reach to central London. Could be more attentive but excellent breakfast, free wifi and a mac computer to use in each of the room makes up for this.

I stayed here last night and it was lovely. All cosy and nice and cosy and… OK you get the point. But I’m more chilled out than i have been in a long time today. Points to City Inn for having the comfiest bed and lovliest duvet ever.
I booked a room for a tenner using Lastminute.com’s Top Secret Hotels. It’s very businessey here, but that’s OK. I wasn’t really arsed where I was, I just wanted a bit of an adventure in town. I think rooms are about £100 normally.
The room was lovely, really nice toiletries from The White Company, lovely iMac computer / telly thing (I very nearly nicked the remote control). Swanky magazines. It’s nice. The free wi-fi made me happy too.
Polite staff, friendly receptionists, nice room and good facilities (there’s a gym here and about four different bars). You don’t really need anything more do you?
So why only four stars? Well the location is pretty strange. It was a Sunday so the whole of Westminters was closed. Everywhere. It took us fifteen minutes to find one open pub and they weren’t serving food. There was nowhere else to eat. Humph. I also object to having to pay £3.95 because I forgot to pack toothpaste. Things like that should be free.
Really nice hotel, but a bit of a walk from the tube and nothing within immediate walking distance food or drinks. I have no complaints about the hotel, btu I wouldn’t choose it again for a weekend away.
This is a lovely modern hotel located in the heart of Westminster. The rooms here are probably the nicest I’ve stayed in when in London and the only reason I haven’t stayed recently is because my work’s London office has moved out of Whitehall to the City.
Rooms come complete with CD and DVD player and they all have a full length picture window. The restaurant deserves special mention, especially the fish and chips, which is definitely a notch or two above your average chippy.
This is a reasonably priced hotel for London and well worth inivestigating.
Modern hotel in a quiet location a short walk or bus journey from the very centre of London. I love staying here - clean, fresh, simple decor in all the rooms; free(!) internet access in all the rooms; a free DVD and CD library to borrow from (plus facilities to play them in the rooms); a good location, and fast, friendly, efficient service from all the staff on every occasion I’ve stayed there (and it’s been a fair few times).
The restaurant isn’t cheap, and although the breakfasts are best described as fantastic, I’m not they qualify as value for money. But the food is lovely, should you be tempted to splurge. The bar is daftly expensive, but there are a few pubs and bars within a couple of minutes’ stroll, and a five-ten minute walk will take you to the heart of Westminster.
Excellent location for sightseeing or for business.
Top place this - bit like an upmarket travelodge. Rooms are neat and simple, none of that fussy, flowery wallpaper. Just modern, light decor and iMacs in all the rooms with free internet. Now we’re talking!
I use this one when I’m working in town as it’s pretty convenient and in a quiet part of the city, yet very near the centre.
I don’t think this place has a pool, but it does have a gym which I’ve yet to check out.
There’s a nice bar and the restaurant seems OK. Breakfast here starts at £12 for continental or £17 for full English. This is why I just opt for coffee and a bagel in the morning.
Nice location, near to some great restaurants - check out my previous reviews.
