London is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world and there’s no shortage of places to stay. From ultra-modern city apartments to relaxing countryside retreats, there’s a huge variety of places for you to stay whenever you’re on vacation here.

Unfortunately, having so much choice just makes things difficult and there are far too many questions that go into picking a place to stay. So in this post, we’ll be breaking down a couple of considerations to keep in mind when choosing a place to stay in London.

How close are you to public transportation?

One of the great things about London is the incredible public transportation systems. As one of the world’s oldest systems, you can rest assured knowing that everything works (most of the time) and there are easy ways to get from point A to B using all of the available methods. In most cases, you’re going to be taking the tube to cover greater distances, and then either walking or jumping on a bus to finish the journey.

So when you’re picking a place to stay, one of the most important factors is that it’s near some form of public transportation. It doesn’t matter if it’s a bus stop or a train station–the closer you are, the more convenient it’ll be to get around. Picking a hotel near Westfield Shopping Centre is virtually guaranteed to give you loads of transport links (there are four train stations and multiple bus stops around Westfield White City), but if you do a bit of research you can easily find the nearest stops to your proposed place of accommodation.

Consider the cost of eating and other essentials in the area

When choosing a place to stay, it’s a good idea to consider the stores and restaurants around you as well. If you’re near one of the local supermarkets such as Tesco or Sainsburys, then you’ll be covered when it comes to affordable food, drinks, and other essentials. However, if your area is surrounded by fancy restaurants and expensive grocery stores, then you might be spending a little more than you’d expect.

As such, when choosing a place to stay in London, try and look for affordable supermarkets and local stores to help you afford basic things like drinks and snacks if needed. This will help you save a lot of money when you just need to grab a quick drink or bite to eat.

Do you have plans on where you want to go?

Whether you’re looking for free things to do in London or want to visit all of the major tourist attractions, it’s usually a good idea to just stay somewhere close to those places. But if you’re willing to do a bit of research, you can actually use route planners such as Google Maps to see what buses and trains you’ll need to take to get from your accommodation to your destination.

This can help you choose locations that are slightly further away from the places you want to visit, but they can still be easy journeys such as taking a single train or bus across the city instead of changing multiple times.
