London boasts an abundance of fantastic places to stay, but North London doesn’t always get its fair share of attention. It’s a beautiful area that is often overlooked in favour of more central locations, but that’s mainly because North London is too cool to self-promote. Here are a few of the best boutique hotels that North London has to offer.
New Market House Bed & Breakfast
Ten minutes by bus from King’s Cross St Pancras, with very little walking at either end, New Market House Bed & Breakfast is a great base of operations for travel around the city, across the country and even to the continent via the Eurostar. This hotel is part of the popular gastropub and alehouse of the same name downstairs – as good a place as any to have some drinks before embarking on the mere three-minute walk to Egg London, a lively nightclub set in a former Victorian warehouse.
Premier Inn London Hackney
Just a two-minute walk from Dalston Junction station, the Premier Inn London Hackney is located in one of London’s most hip neighbourhoods. Surrounded by edgy bars and clubs, and with plenty of great spots to sit down for a meal, this place is ideal for millennials looking to be in prime position for a good time.
Camden BnB Hotel
Less than a ten-minute walk from Camden High Street, Camden Bnb Hotel offers guests lots to explore locally, including the famous Camden Market and the picturesque Camden Lock, which are surrounded by plenty of places to enjoy a drink or grab a bite to eat – not to mention Camden’s thriving nightlife. The hotel is barely a three-minute walk from Kentish Town West Overground station, so it’s easy to venture further afield, too.
Premier Inn London Angel Islington
In the heart of bustling Angel and less than a five-minute walk from Angel tube station, the Premier Inn London Angel Islington is in a great location for anyone looking to have food, bars and entertainment right on the doorstep – the O2 Academy Islington is just a minute’s walk away inside Angel Central shopping centre, as are lots of places to eat and drink.
The Castle Bar Bed and Breakfast
A ten-minute walk or three minutes by bus from Caledonian Road station, The Castle Bar Bed and Breakfast is perfect for anyone looking to stay somewhere more residential and escape the hustle and bustle of major areas. Also roughly twenty minutes’ bus ride away from Kings Cross St Pancras, this place is good as a springboard for travelling around the city and the country, as well as to France, Belgium and Amsterdam by Eurostar.
