London On A Budget: The 5 Highest Rated Travelodge Hotels

London is one of the most beautiful, unique and historic cities in the world. It also happens to be one of the most expensive.

Those looking to do London on a budget will find it difficult to get affordable accommodation. Most hotels in the heart of the British capital are likely to leave a rather sizeable dent in your wallets, especially if you plan on staying for more just a few nights and unless you do not spend time researching for hotels in Blackpool or York, you may have to make sizeable cuts on other transactions during your vacation.

However, the chain of budget hotels, Travelodge, have many locations around London providing a place to stay at a cost that isn’t extortionate. But which of their London hotels is the best choice? We have looked at the reviews provided by previous customers on sites like Trip Advisor, and the search engine Google to provide the answer.

5. Travelodge London Central City Road

TripAdvisor ranking: 484 of 1054 hotels in London

Ebookers rating: 3.7/5

Google reviews: 3.3/5

The Museum of London and St. Paul’s Cathedral are within walking distance of the Travelodge London Central City Road hotel.

4. Travelodge London Covent Garden

TripAdvisor ranking: 458 of 1054 hotels in London

Ebookers rating: 3.6/5

Google reviews: 3.4/5

Perfect if you’re in London for a trip to the West End, the Travelodge London Covent Garden is close to all the main theatres and cinemas. The National Gallery and British Museum are also just a short hop from your doorstep too, and make sure you visit Covert Garden itself just around the corner. It’s a large, ugly grey building on the outside, but inside is a modern lobby and comfortable rooms.

3. Travelodge London Stratford

TripAdvisor ranking:  364 of 1054 hotels in London

HotelTravel – 3.7/5

Google reviews: 4.0/5

The hotel is highly rated on Google, TripAdvisor and elsewhere, so why is it only ranked 3rd on our own list. Well, the Travelodge London Stratford was perfectly located for those going to the Olympics just outside of the city centre. It is situated just minutes away from the Olympic Stadium, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and London Aquatics Centre. Those looking to visit these landmarks post-Olympic fever will have the perfect stay at the Travelodge London Stratford. But those who want to see some of the famous London sights in central London may wish to look elsewhere.

2. Travelodge London Tower Bridge

TripAdvisor: 435 of 1054 hotels in London rating: 8.6/10

Google reviews: 3.6/5

The Tower Of London is just a few minutes walk from the hotel. So, too, of course, is the Tower Bridge after which the hotel is named after. The Travelodge London Tower Bridge hotel also lets you wander down the River Thames and discover the London Bridge. Furthermore, the Tower Hill underground tube station is just around the corner which lets you ride the Circle and District lines to areas such as Westminster and St. James’s Park.
