Just a couple of blocks from Marble Arch and Hyde Park, this small, friendly hotel won't win any style awards—its guest rooms are far from fancy—but, almost better, they are clean and comfortable. Each has satellite TV and air-conditioning, a rarity for most hotels in this price range. A buffet breakfast is included, or choose a heartier cooked option for just a few pounds extra. You can have a vegan breakfast, too. Check the website for special offers that can reduce
the price by as much as two-thirds.
