Where to Stay in London for Solo Travellers

Travelling to London solo? You’re in excellent company: London is a popular choice for solo travellers from the British Isles, Europe, and further afield. Even when travelling alone, you will never feel lonely in London. The first item on the agenda is deciding where to stay in London as a solo traveller.

Choosing where to stay in London for solo travellers

Choosing where to stay in London as a solo traveller is approached in the same way as a couple or family. Amenities, location, and price are the key areas to think about. However, safety is additionally important for those travelling alone. 

  1. Pick a safe neighbourhood

London has a low crime rating on the whole. As a city that never sleeps, it’s rare to find a deserted street. Office workers trickle out of their offices until the early hours and there are always taxis hovering around ready to scoop up revellers after last orders are called at the pubs. Tourists and Londoners are frequently spotted late at night enjoying a stroll around the monuments or hopping from pub to pub. 

Choosing a safe neighbourhood is still important. As a solo traveller, it is wise to choose accommodation in the West End. Such neighbourhoods as Paddington, Bayswater, Marylebone, Mayfair, Westminster, and Covent Garden have a high safety rating and are well served by public transport. The Central Park Hotel, Bayswater, fits the bill. 

  1. Consider your itinerary

Put together a wishlist of sights and activities ahead of your solo trip to London. If it turns out most of these are clustered in one particular area, you will want to consider accommodation close by. 

In some instances, the hotels might be beyond your budget. Hotels in Mayfair, Covent Garden, Kensington, and the City of London tend to be more expensive. In this case, look at hotels in a different neighbourhood that sit on the same London Underground line. 

The Central Park Hotel in Bayswater is ideal for getting to the locations mentioned.  

  1. Find a hotel close to a Tube station

Even when staying in a safe area in London, it’s still a good idea to select a hotel as close as possible to the Underground. This is important in the winter months when the sun sets very early and also if you’re planning on going out in the evening to eat or see a show. The Central Park Hotel, Bayswater, spares you from having to walk alone in the dark. 

  1. Seek solo traveller-friendly accommodation 

Travelling solo doesn’t automatically equate to backpacking and sleeping in hostel dorms. The Central Park Hotel in Bayswater welcomes solo travellers to feel at home in a comfortable guest room with an ensuite bathroom. Our premium rooms come as deluxe doubles and executive doubles. 

Solo travellers on a budget may want to book a windowless room or even a single room in order to save money without having to consider a communal dorm. 

This tiered approach marks the hotel as being hospitable for solo travellers. Furthermore, reviews from previous guests speak for themselves.
