With St. George’s Day fast approaching, falling just next month on 23rd April, the mad rush to make a hotel booking may not be occurring just yet, but believe us – it will.
Immortalised in the tale of St. George and the Dragon, St. George’s Day sees thousands of people patriotically celebrate the patron Saint of England. This will see many descend on London to do so, with many probably deciding to travel to London without any hotel bookings or accommodation. It is for this reason that making an advanced hotel booking is of great importance.
Possessing a major, worldwide reputation as a fantastic tourist hotspot with a number of fantastic hotels, London is immensely busy on a standard day, but on the day celebrating England’s patron Saint – it can be guaranteed that London will be heaving with tourists.
Making a hotel booking in advance could ensure that not only you can spend the day celebrating in the most memorable way possible, but it also means you have somewhere decent to stay – a good hotel to sleep off a heavy evening.
Due to the sheer amount of hotels that the capital has to offer, we’ve created a short guide, documenting four of the best London hotels that you could stay in this St. George’s Day:
The Hyde Park Hotel, Leinster Square: Offering the kind of exterior commonly associated with the West End but with an added freshness, this new hotel certainly lives up to expectation. Studio rooms in this hotel come with high standards clearly in mind. Each room comes equipped with a mini kitchen, flat screen television and access to high speed internet. Overall, in our opinion, this is a hotel that certainly should be booked in advance.
Hampstead Britannia Hotel, Primrose Hill Road: Located very close to both Regents Park and the vibrant Camden Town, this hotel may be slightly more basic than the Hyde Park Hotel; however what it lacks in style, it more than makes up for in location. With a number of designer stores, restaurants, cafes and bars in its vicinity, a stay at the Hampstead Britannia Hotel will ensure that St. George’s Day is spent in the most eventful way.
Apex City of London Hotel, Seething Lane: Possessing an exterior that would set itself on a par with many of its European counterparts, this Apex City Hotel offers both comfort and style. All rooms contain the basics like widescreen satellite televisions complimented with abstract art pieces. Advanced walk-in showers and a pillow menu (to help keep that aching head comfortable?) show that all the stops will be pulled out.
Rafayel Hotel, Lombard Road: Okay, it is a long shot – we know, but this hotel is just that special. The Rafayel Hotel is located in the fashionable South West London and is the area’s most luxurious, eco-conscious property. State-of-the-art technology and stunning views which overlook the Thames allow for those guests who just want to celebrate St. George’s day in a quiet manner to do so spectacularly. It should be noted that with a five star hotel rating, this hotel comes at a price.
So why not beat the rush and make a hotel booking today.
