Privates from £45/ night
We move on to the simple hotels now, which provide privacy and a bit more serenity in Central London for a fraction of the average London room price. Belgrave House is a clean and simple hotel with a pretty unbeatable location. Single rooms, some of which have a private bathroom, are among the cheapest in the city, while the one bedroom apartment is perfect for those hoping to have a few more facilities on hand, including a kettle, oven and dishwasher.
Privates from £49/ night
Although not all the rooms have a private bathroom at Enrico Hotel, there are a good range of different room types available, including twin, double, single and quadruple.

An additional bonus to the price at Enrico Hotel is the free breakfast provided.

Bakers Hotel is a good combination of budget and modernity. The rooms have fresh linen and it does not feel quite as worn as some of the other budget hotels in London.

Free wifi is only available in the public areas of the hotel.
