All the Z Hotel branches in Central London are gay favourites, and are based on two main facts: firstly, that space is limited in the heart of one of the most crowded cities in Europe, and secondly that most visitors spend their time in a city actually visiting. The rooms are small, ranging from 8m2 to 14m2, but they are also cheap and impeccably designed.
The single room, ideal for solo travelers who are sick of paying for more space than they need, can cost as little as £50 per night. The larger rooms are perfect for practical couples, and this Z Hotel branch even has something the others on this list do not: a Family Room, with two double or queen beds in a bunk bed arrangement. Four friends traveling together could pay as little as £28 a night to stay in the City, which is a great deal.
The City location is only marginally further away from the West End than the other two Z Hotel branches on this list, with Soho’s gayborhood (and the area’s many famous landmarks) only 20 minutes away. Meanwhile, you are closer to other great London highlights, such as the Tate Modern, Borough Market, Shakespeare’s Globe, and the Tower of London. It is also easier to reach the East End’s gay nightlife, which is gaining popularity as London’s cooler and more local alternative to Soho.
♥ Some excellent room deals, especially if you are traveling solo or in a group
♥ Cheaper than a West End location, but still walking distance to West End attractions
♥ Closer to the East End, meaning easier transport links to gay scenes in Dalston and Hoxton
