Room rates, facilities, grades, detailed descriptions and even photos are available for most hotels. But note that Superbreak quote prices on a per person basis not per room.

Worldres / placestostay.com - this website provides the hotels pages of many well known brands, including lastminute.com and Opodo. With prices up to 70% off published rates, for the last two years Forbes has called WorldRes "Best of the Web" in online hotel reservations.

This link takes you to their london page. From there you can click on places on a london map for details of hotels by area, or search across all of london, selecting from over 250 hotels - anything a bed in a 6 berth dormitory from £10 a night to apartments or suites in 5 star luxury hotels.

Allrez.com - this link takes you to the allrez city hotels page (with 'london hotels' automatically selected).

They have a 'refine search' section at the bottom of the page, but it doesn't work that well. The quickest way is to get an idea of the hotel you want with the companies above, then search for that hotel by name (and check the price) at Allrez.

They offer a broad range of london hotels. Click on a room type and 'more info' any of the hotels for an honest assessment of the hotel and its location. A regular place for bargains.

Holidayextras - this is a bit of a 'joker' in the pack. It is a discount website focusing on airport hotels, but if you click on this link, then 'london' in the 'airport' box, enter your dates and click 'proceed' you'll get details of up to 30 central london hotels.

Their central london hotels range from 2 to 4 star, often at unbeatable prices - from £40 a night (per room, not per person) they even have quad rooms from less than £45. Always worth a look.

How to get the best price on central london hotels

  1. As with most things on the web, our first piece of advice is to shop around for your cheap central london hotel. Check the prices at all of the websites detailed below. It's not unusual for them to offer the same hotel at very different prices.
  2. Unlike flights, as long as there is no conference or major event in London, you will often find the best deal by leaving booking late. Booking between two and seven days in advance usually yields the cheapest central london hotel rooms. But don't wait until the day as prices go back up.
  3. When comparing prices, the most important thing is to make sure that you are comparing ‘like with like’. Not just the same hotel (and there are 34 Holiday Inn hotels serving london, for example), make sure the ‘package’ is the same. Price per person and per room, service charges and breakfast (included or not) are the usual variants.
  4. Sometimes adding a weekend night will lower the rate for all of the other nights of your stay.
  5. Compare prices, but compare locations too. It's usually worth paying a little extra to be nearer the centre of town, or your preferred attraction.
  6. Don't just rely on 'star' ratings. Look at the facilities the hotel has and rank hotels based on the facilities' importance to you.
  7. If you want a cheap hotel at the weekend, consider hotels in or near business districts. Business people only want hotels during the week. These hotels are usually of a 'superior' standard but, in order to attract weekend custom, they offer excellent weekend deals.
