Family Friendly Hotels In London
An awesome location in the trendy, but fun and relaxed, neighborhood of Marylebone. Guests have access to a very nice swimming pool (though kids can only swim from 3:30 to 5:00 on weekdays, and 10:30 to 12:00 and 3:30 to 5:00 on weekends.) We stayed a week at the Marylebone and loved it. Be sure to check out the Golden Hinde fish and chips restaurant just out the hotel’s back door. A grocery store, Starbucks, cheap breakfast spots, and good quality pubs and restaurants are all within an easy walk.
The great location (a short walk to the London Bridge and Tower of London, as well as 3 tube stations – Monument, Tower Hill and Aldgate), nice size rooms and good breakfast make this hotel a winner for families. And the friendly staff get nothing but raves.
The Crowne Plaza has a great location for families. Steps from the Gloucester Road tube stop which is on the Circle, Piccadilly, and District lines making getting around the city cheap and easy. (The Piccadilly line will get you to and from Heathrow Airport – but don’t do this trip during rush hour or with a lot of bags.) Hyde Park, The Natural History Museum, Science Museum, Kensington Gardens and The Victoria and Albert Museum are all within a short walk. The staff get raves and the Waitrose grocery store across the street could be a life saver if you’re traveling with a baby or toddler.
Cheap hotels for families are rare in London, but the Luna & Simone might just qualify – especially since a full english breakfast is included. The rooms are not large but you’re not in London to hang out in your room. Close to the Tate Britain and Westminster Cathedral and a short distance to both the Victoria and Pimlico tube stations. Kids will like the delicious hot chocolate served at breakfast.
Just around the corner from the London Dungeon and London Bridge tube stop, and a short walk to the Tate Modern and The Globe, this is a great hotel for families. Clean doubles and triples are good value. The breakfast is wonderful (kids eat for free!) and the staff are exceptional.
Maybe the best budget hotel for families, especially if you can grab one of their super cheap online deals. Very close to Waterloo Station, the London Eye and London Aquarium.
It’s all about location when you stay in this part of Central London. The hotel is very close to Trafalgar Square, Parliament, Buckingham Palace, the London Transport Museum, the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery. Some rooms come with a kitchenette and a view of Big Ben. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is located between the Charing Cross and Embankment tube stations giving guests access to the Circle, District, Bakerloo and Northern lines.
