If you’re visiting London, but don’t have the cookie-cutter standard party of two, you may want to find a triple occupancy room.

This can be a far more economical option than getting a twin/double and a single.  However, three-person rooms aren’t always easy to find.

So let London Hotels Insight save you the hassle with our rundown of London’s best triple rooms in the north, south, east, west or centre.

Central London: The Grand at Trafalgar Square

The Grand is right in the thick of the action near Trafalgar Square and Westminster Abbey.  It’s an ideal option if you need a room for three.

Formerly the Victoria Hotel (est.1887) it has been beautifully restored and now boasts a variety of rooms, including ‘studio rooms’ for three.

It’s respectably-ranked on TripAdvisor within the top 70 hotels at the time of writing.  Though it’s certainly not a “luxury” hotel in terms of service and amenities, its unbeatable location trumps everything else.

The Grand offers a number of interesting innovations: for example, they deliver fitness equipment to your room!  They also have an intriguing “Mozzarella Bar” which serves a range of authentic handmade mozzarellas.

The hotel is particularly well-suited to those on an active sightseeing vacation who will benefit most from a central location.

North of centre: Melia White House Hotel, Euston

Just north of the centre near Euston station sits the Melia White House.

It’s well-situated for access to Heathrow and central London hubs like Regent’s Park, Oxford Street and Piccadilly Circus.  Rooms have a contemporary feel and the ‘junior suites’ easily cater for parties of three.

The hotel has a Spanish feel, with its award-winning “Albufera” restaurant serving authentic Iberian treats and tempting tapas.

The Melia White House rates just outside the top 100 on TripAdvisor with its acceptable rooms and efficient staff.  It often has good special offers.  Do also use our Best Deal Finder to meta-search the best rate.

South of centre: Plaza on the River, Vauxhall

The Plaza on the River is set on the south bank of the River Thames.  It offers yet more ideal accommodation for larger groups.

The hotel’s ‘open-plan studio suites’ are a perfect fit for three people and within easy walking distance of London’s famous landmarks like the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, the Tate Modern and Big Ben.

The hotel rates highly with guests and is currently in TripAdvisor’s top 30.  It’s especially suited to groups and also has an Asian restaurant on site.  The generous size of many of its suites makes them great value for money.

East of centre: Novotel Tower Bridge

The Novotel Tower Bridge is on the doorstep of the City of London.  This recently-redesigned hotel boasts spacious ‘three guest double rooms’ – the perfect option for a party of three.  Close to Tower Bridge, London Dungeons and St Paul’s Cathedral, the Novotel is in an ideal location.

It offers fair value and is rated just outside the top 100 London hotels on TripAdvisor.  We did previously feature another Novotel in Greenwich – a less convenient location but with even better reviews.

West of centre: Base2Stay, Kensington

Base2Stay is located in stylish Kensington.  This bright, friendly hotel is within easy reach of some of London’s great attractions – The Natural History Museum, Royal Albert Hall and Kensington Palace to name a few.  It also features ‘superior rooms’, which comfortably sleep three.

The Base2stay Superior Room offers sparkling value: particularly as the hotel owner is personally passionate about value

We’ve previously featured Base2stay here and also published their hotel video.  The General Manager of Base2Stay told us the following:

“At £161 incl. VAT for ‘superior rooms’, it is just over £50 per adult per night.  They are made up of 2 twin beds or 6′ doubles (subject to guest preference) plus sofabed.  They are one of our most popular room types.”
