If you’ve ever booked a trip to the capital, I’m sure you’ll agree that ‘cheap’ and ‘affordable’ aren’t words that immediately spring to mind.
However, one hotel chain is offering rooms from as little as just £42 a night - and they’ve got some really impressive reviews.
The hotels have numerous locations, including Kings Cross, Shoreditch, Brick Lane and Tower Bridge in London, and Edinburgh’s Haymarket and Royal Mile.
Although the rooms are small - about 'half the size' of a normal Premier Inn, according to the hotel chain - they come with pretty much everything you’d need for a decent night’s kip, including swish en-suite bathrooms and comfy beds.
The website explains: “Hub by Premier Inn offers smart, stylish rooms across London and Edinburgh at great prices.
"Each room includes a slick touchscreen control panel to change the lighting and temperature, completely free superfast Wi-Fi, snazzy 40" smart TVs, high-powered monsoon showers and relaxing beds.”
The site adds: “You can stow your luggage in the under-bed storage, hang your clothes behind your full length mirror and stretch out on your double bed to watch a movie on your 40" Smart TV. We think you’ll agree our rooms have all the space you need.”
Although the rooms don’t come with tea and coffee making facilities, guests can help themselves to free hot drinks in the reception area.
The Hub hotels all fare pretty well on Tripadvisor, with almost all of them holding an impressive four-and-a-half stars out of five based on thousands of reviews.
Giving the maximum five stars out of five, one happy guest who stayed at the Covent Garden location wrote: “As long as you know what you're getting then this hotel has a lot going for it.
“Definitely a place where you go to the room to sleep, not spend long waking hours, but clean, comfortable and very well equipped for a small space.”
And another said: “Really enjoyed staying at The Hub and it was much better than what I expected. The room was incredibly clean and comfortable.
"The bathroom had everything I needed including good lighting. The staff were very approachable and friendly.”
Of course, as with most hotels, room prices vary and anyone hoping to find a room before Christmas for less than £50 is out of luck - but if you’re happy to play around with dates there’s some £42 rooms available midweek in January.Featured Image Credit: Premier Inn/Getty Stock Photo
