The best flexibility in London hotels.

by Andrea on April 10, 2013

More than ever hotels need to be all about flexibility and choice. Modern travellers are sick of  identical rooms with identical features and identical furnishings; reliability isn’t enough any more.  And as for a choice of unnamed tea or coffee at breakfast – we expect a choice of lapsang souchong, Kenya peaberry, Ethiopian mocha, latte […]


Nadler Hotels to land in Soho.

by Jules on April 2, 2013

Base2stay recently announced that it is not only rebranding to Nadler Hotels but also opening a brand new London property!  The new, ahem, Nadler Soho will open in May.  The hotel will have 78 rooms in 8 different categories, including single rooms which seem to be something of a rarity these days, as well as a […]

Despite the continuing chill in the air, spring is definitely on its way to London and we can’t wait to see the daffodils put out their blooms.  It’s a time for new beginnings and this season will see refurbishments, special offers and brand new premises joining the boutique hotel scene. Set to open in May, […]


My winter warmer at Base2Stay Kensington.

by Andrea on January 11, 2013

Base2stay Kensington occupies a tall Victorian townhouse – the kind with gleaming black painted railings and steps up to the imposing door. It’s an impressive property, set on a side street away from the bustle of Earl’s Court Road.  Equally impressive is the extent to which Base2Stay aims to be a green hotel.  The lobby is […]

With the Jubilee extended weekend imminent and the Olympics just around the corner, we look back at what’s been going on in the world of boutique hotels in May, and look forward to what’s coming up in June. Without question the biggest event taking place in May was London’s Boutique Hotel Summit 2012 at Altitude […]

With the summer drawing near, not to mention the Olympic Games and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, these are exciting times for London boutique hotels and April certainly saw plenty of new developments. With less than ninety days to go until all eyes turn to London for the Olympics, some hotels are still frantically putting the […]

The Green […]

Top 10 hotel rip-offs.

by Andrea on May 10, 2011

I fondly remember the FT’s ‘lunch for a fiver’ offer, which I sometimes made use of when I worked in the City.  You cut out the coupon, you went to your preferred hostelry and you paid £5 for lunch. Except, of course, that usually you didn’t.  You’d pay £15 after a glass of Perrier, a […]


London-Liverpool break: easy, cheap and fun!

by Rajul on January 21, 2011

Liverpool initially seems an unpromising destination for a weekend escape. A cursory glance at the map shows that it’s at the opposite end of the country to London.  Surely there must be more user-friendly short break possibilities like Brighton, Windsor or even Paris? And at least within the UK, Liverpool historically acquired a slightly unsavoury […]


InterContinental Park Lane: free Boris bikes.

by Rajul on October 13, 2010

Since launching at the end of July 2010, the Barclays Cycle Hire scheme (more commonly referred to as “Boris Bikes” after the charismatic London Mayor) has proved extremely popular amongst Londoners, with over 500,000 trips made in the first six weeks alone. Visitors to the capital can now also make use of the scheme’s 5,000+ […]


Do hotels really need full-service restaurants?

by Rajul on September 27, 2010

London hotels have contrasting views on this particular topic. Flagship hotel restaurants are often seen as a selling point.  This especially applies to luxury hotels, with Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester and Gordon Ramsay at Art Deco gem Claridge’s notable examples, along with Galvin at Windows (Hilton on Park Lane) and Apsley’s at the Lanesborough. […]

The best eco-friendly London hotels.

by Rajul on September 16, 2010

London Hotels Insight has already featured a good selection of the most eco-friendly London hotels and it’s now time to do a recap of the very best. We’ve only listed hotels that have won rigorous external awards for their environmentally-friendly approach (such as from the Visit Britain Green Tourism Business Scheme) or have supplied us […]


Base2stay London goes for zero emissions.

by Rajul on August 16, 2010

We have a passion for eco-friendly hotels on this blog, having sung the praises of various environmentally-aware London hotels including Rafayel on the Left Bank, the Cavendish, the Zetter and the Lancaster London. It is no coincidence that all the hotels mentioned above are well-regarded in general with consistently solid guest reviews.  There seems to […]


To call the competition at the budget end of the London hotel market “vigorous” would be something of an understatement. You’ve got established budget chains like Travelodge and Premier Inn growing at breakneck speed, offering cheap promotions and decent locations aplenty – though often housed in fascinatingly “ugly” buildings. Then there are well-priced, good-quality independent […]
