Centrally located and close to TubeA clean, decent and safe place to stay. Staff were lovely. The hotel was probably once a gem but it's a bit faded now, with dated fixtures etc. It fit my budget and was all that I needed and expected.

Great locationGreat location to explore London from. Hotel is very comfortable, spacious and well appointed. Some very minor “annoyances” with hearing the heavy footsteps from room above and power points in silly spots but nothing to detract from our overall experience at this hotel.

Historic Hotel Guide in London

While the Romans have the honour of the first recorded settlement in the area, it’s now believed that London was previously occupied by Bronze Age peoples.

You can learn about those early inhabitants—and many more who came after them—at the Museum of London. Coincidentally, this building is located on London Wall, named for the actual wall that surrounded the city during the Roman era. For a slightly different type of history, make your way to the Tower of London, a fortress on the north bank of the River Thames. It’s perhaps best known for its use as a prison during the 16th and 17th centuries, though a tour of the castle also shows off the Crown Jewels and the peaceful Chapel of St. Peter ad Vincula.

To round out a day (or more) in the city, stop by St. Dunstan-in-the-East, between the Tower of London and London Bridge. The church, which was first constructed in 1100, was rebuilt in the early 1800s and then severely damaged during the Blitzkrieg. Rather than rebuild again, the city turned it into a public garden. Grass, trees, and plants now grow around the ruins, providing a peaceful location where nature and faith intertwine.
