Top 10 London Family Hotels

2017 London Family Travel Guide

London double decker bus

We have found the best London family hotels for you to stay at when you travel the UK with your children. While your accommodation probably won't be as majestic as one of the royal palaces, you will have lots of great places to choose from for your own little prince and princesses.

If you are traveling on a budget, don't fret, there are several cheap family hotels in London, England to stay in. There are also many charming family rooms available in old Victorian townhouses. And there is of course luxury family accommodations with all the amenities.

Hotels in London are known for being tiny. When I first visited with my daughter we stayed in a budget hotel and the double bed took up the entire room, however on a subsequent visit the Royal Garden Hotel and the Ampersand both offer lots of space.

There was about a foot of space to walk along the edge and a very small bathroom. If you are used to North American hotels then be prepared for much less space! A serviced apartment is a great idea if you are looking for more room for your family, however there are plenty of luxury London family hotels to choose from too!

You will have lots more space to hang out in and the children can have their own bedroom(s). You'll have access to a kitchen so you can cook a few meals at "home" or just store drinks and snacks.
