Disagree? Quieter hotels you can recommend? Please let us know.
- For business trips involving City of London, Tower Hill/St Paul’s/Mansion House areas may be convenient and have several quiet hotels.
- In Central London, finding quiet hotels in Trafalgar Square, Oxford Circus, Soho, Victoria/Pimlico areas requires a lot of research. Marble Arch could be a better choice to avoid the crowds and noise.
- The upmarket area of Mayfair is quiet at night, but expect high prices for all hotels.
- If you want to be close to the Kensington Olympia Exhibition Centre, Earls Court and Gloucester Road areas have many hotels for all budgets. These would also be convenient for museums in South Kensington. But you might want to avoid High Street Kensington and Cromwell Road, both have heavy traffic.
- In general most main roads in London will be on bus routes. Please be aware that some of these buses will be running 24 hours.
