EasyHotel is our new favourite budget chain when needing a no-frills place to stay. From the creators of low-cost airline EasyJet, this is an affordable and clean accommodation option in central London.

If you will just be spending a few hours in your hotel room each day, don’t need luxury facilities and want to save some money, then we highly recommend EasyHotel.

As the hotels are all brand new or recently refurbished, you won’t find aging rooms here. 
When we say these hotels are no frills, that really is the case – the cheapest rooms don’t even have windows and are very small; TV and Wi-Fi access are optional, and charged extra.

This particular location is close to a tube station and a 15-minute walk to Kensington’s museums. Like the other EasyHotel locations, it is cheap and clean. 
Rooms start £29 per night. There is another EasyHotel location nearby in South Kensington.

3. The Villa Kensington

Nearest Station: Gloucester Road
Address: 10-11 Ashburn Gardens, London, SW7 4DG
Telephone: 0207 370 6605
Book: Book this hotel at,, Expedia or Ebookers.

This 3-star hotel provides affordable accommodation, and is a 10-minute walk from the Kensington Museums. 

An onsite cafĂ©-style restaurant and bar, serves a full English breakfast at a bargain £5.50 and a continental breakfast is included in most room rates.

It’s an upgrade from the aforementioned EasyHotel in terms of comfort and location, but this is by no means a luxurious place to stay. The 3-star rating is deserved in our opinion. 

Rooms start at £68 per night. Book The Villa Kensington at Hotels.comBooking.comExpedia or Ebookers - check them all for the best deal.
