Find the Best Hotels in The City of London with Hotels.com

The British capital of London needs no introduction, and the district of the City of London is its commercial and financial heart. A bustling trading post during Roman rule nearly 2000 years ago, the district continues to be a trading center for the UK capital, and there are plenty of hotels in The City of London to accommodate business travelers and tourists. While hotels in the Square Mile can be pricier compared to other London districts, there are budget, mid-range and luxury hotels available. It's easy to find the perfect place to stay with Hotels.com's ratings and review system by previous guests, the multiple photos of the facilities and rooms and a map marking the exact locations of the listings to plan your arrival and itinerary around the city.

What is the City of London Like?

Though The City's not as big a tourist attraction as some other London districts, it's a must-visit for anyone staying interested in seeing the heart of the UK economy. This is where London began, and the official City, which has its own police force, has not changed much in size over the years. It's bound by small 'griffins' on most of its peripheral roads. It's the British equivalent of Wall Street, and the London Stock Exchange, the Bank of England, Lloyds TSB and other important financial institutions call it their home. Historic attractions include St Paul's Cathedral and London Museum, and there are an increasing number of nightlife, dining and shopping options to enjoy on the weekends. World War II bombing destroyed much of the old buildings of this ancient settlement, but the Gothic Guildhall, the 19th century Smithfield and Leaden Hall remain.

Fitting in, in the City of London

Though The City is compact, it's also easy to get lost here because some of its street-patterns follow the original medieval plan. Arm yourself with a detailed map from a tourist information center and you can have fun discovering shortcuts, passages, and courtyards away from the main streets. Everything in The City is within ten or fifteen minutes walk away, so it should be easy to find a good restaurant or nightspot. Since it's a financial center by day, much of the city can seem like a ghost town at night. But many hotels have their own restaurants and bars, and the London tube with several stations at St Paul's, Bank, Barbican, Old Street etc. make it very convenient to travel to various other parts of London.
