HOTELS, APARTMENTS, VACATION RENTALS, HOSTELS, GUEST HOUSES AND BED AND BREAKFAST IN LONDON
Capital and most important city of England, London is the 3rd largest city in Europe, after Moscow and Istanbul.
Its population is about 9 million considering the urban area alone, 14 million considering the metropolitan area. It is also considered one of the most multi-ethnic cities in the world. It is home to numerous international institutions and organizations, world-renowned museums, world heritage sites and much more.
It’s a global city, as can be seen from the list of Alpha World Cities. From the administrative point it is divided into 32 boroughs (London boroughs) which, in common use, are divided into 12 boroughs of the Inner London and 20 of the Outer London. We mention only those of Inner London : Camden, Greenwich, Hackney, Hammersmith, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark, Tower Hamlets and Wandsworth.
London has endless souls and endless places to visit. Everything passes through this metropolis: history, culture, music, trends, fashion, legends. Booking a cheap apartment, a classic bed and breakfast, a hotel or any accommodation in London is a piece of cake with 9flats: with two clicks you can do everything you want.
Finding your own London
You’ll see, anything is possible in London. Only well-to-do contemporaries can usually afford an apartment within sight of the London Eye in The Strand Street, but with a private apartment in London this dream can come true for at least a few days or weeks. This also applies to overnight stays in the Soho district, where there are many trendy clubs in the immediate vicinity. During the day you’ll explore the museums and galleries in the central Bloomsbury (living tip for those who want to discover the whole city!). The British Museum, founded in 1753 and completed almost 100 years later, is one of the most important museums in the world. Today, about 8 million exhibits inspire the visitors. The library contains approximately 350,000 volumes of world literature. In total, the collections and exhibits presented in the museum cover a period of about 2 million years. Other highlights of this district include the London Zoo, the Charles Dickens Museum, the Regent’s Park and the famous train station King’s Cross. During the night, the many clubs are not far away and then hopefully it is only a few steps to your holiday home in London. The choice is not easy in a metropolis with 32 districts: These are symbolized by the 32 cabins of the London Eye Ferris Wheel, which stands directly on the Thames and is also known as the “Millennium Wheel”. Originally, it was to be constructed on the occasion of the Millennium Celebration and would only attract visitors for five years. Meanwhile, it belongs to the biggest attractions of the city and there is no talk of a dismantling of the 135 meter high giant. Find the best hotels in London on 9flats.
From a holiday apartment in London to a tour of the city
If you walk from the London Eye over the Westminster Bridge, you come to the “Tower”, which also invites to a tour. Here you will find not only the crown jewels, but also armor, weapons and instruments of torture. The extensive exhibitions inform about the long history of the spectacular “Tower of London”. Many accommodations at 9flats.com offer sightseeing in the direct neighbourhood. As atmospheric as in an old Edgar Wallace film, it also lives in districts like White Chapel or Tower Hill; the apartments are so close to the sights that one sometimes wakes up from the crows of the Tower Ravens. If you like it greener and quieter, choose an apartment within sight of the parks. Bayswater or Knightsbridge are on the famous Hide Park and Highgate is a residential area near Hampstead Heath. And that’s something you can only experience in an apartment in London: brushing your teeth out of the window, watching the queue in front of the London Dungeon and only picking up tickets when no one else is standing there. If you want to explore the British Isles even more, we can also offer you Apartments in Plymouth in the southwest of the country and Apartments in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland.
There are many areas, zones, neighbourhoods and districts to visit during your stay in London. In 9flats you can find the best cheap accommodations, hotels and vacation rentals both in the Inner London and Outer London. We recommend you:
Camden Town certainly represents the true essence of coolest London, where the alternative music scene, shopping of all kinds and for every budget and eccentricity, are the masters.
This is to say that every visit to London must definitely include a tour of Camden. To see and visit:
- Camden Lock Market in Camden Lock Place, London NW1 8AF. Open daily from 10am until late at night, this world-famous market that stretches from Regent’s Canal to the Stables Market hosts hundreds of exhibitors in the picturesque location of the Queen’s former horse stables. Here you’ll find crafts, vintage, bags, clothes, vinyl records and more. Of course there is no lack of street food, always of quality and exquisite.
- Jewish Museum 129-131 Albert Street. Museum dedicated to the history of the Jews in Britain. You can admire objects of gold-smithery, cult works of art and various antiquities, not retrace the history of this community.
- Primrose Hill a 62-metre hill dominates the Thames. Once a favourite terrain for duels, today a favourite destination for Londoner men of letters, it offers a beautiful view of the City.
The history of this not exactly central district, is intertwined with the history of the British monarchy, just think that Henry VIII and Elizabeth I were born here. It is famous in the world for the fact that it was decided, in the nineteenth century, to pass the meridian of longitude 0. Very elegant neighborhood, you can breathe a relaxed and, in some ways, bucolic atmosphere. Not to be missed:
- Royal Observatory Originally built in 1675, it has two main thematic areas: Time and Astronomy. Go to the Peter Harrison Planetarium: it houses 120 people and a sophisticated laser projector projects the Vault of Heaven onto the bronze ceiling. A full visit takes about 4 hours but it’s definitely worth it. Blackheath Ave, Greenwich, London SE10 8XJ
- National Maritime Museum Park Row, Greenwich Peninsula, London SE10 9NF – One of the most important maritime museums in the world. It houses models, exhibitions, paintings and trophies from every continent.
- Greenwich Park An ancient hunting reserve, it was the first Royal Park to be opened to the public in 1433. It is a very beautiful and well-kept park, but it also preserves some spontaneous areas that greatly increase its charm. The rose gardens are beautiful, as is the deer area.
It used to be a neighborhood to avoid, with strong social problems and high crime. But in the last decades, thanks to a continuous work of requalification and renovation, the neighborhood has changed its appearance and above all it is no longer that marginal and insecure suburb. Instead of the sad and grey buildings, there are now, and continue to be, markets and flea markets, museum restaurants, parks and trendy clubs. In short, Hackney is now considered a trendy neighborhood.
Here the main attractions are the markets, such as the Broadway Market that every Saturday offers the best organic products and of course street food; the Netil Market, specialized in handicrafts and whose epicenter is the Netil House, building where a community of hipster artists live and work. On Sundays, instead, visit the flower market of Columbia Road, where an atmosphere full of colors, sounds and scents will completely envelop you.
Also very interesting is the Geffrye Museum, 136 Kingsland Road, London E2 8EA. It is a museum of design, with works from 1600 to the present day.
Kensington e Chelsea
One of the most elegant districts of London, a Royal Borough worthy of the name: here Queen Victoria was born. White Edwardian style houses in pastel colours, parks and beautiful tree-lined avenues. And more museums, historic and elegant buildings. Today frequented and inhabited by world famous artists as well as politicians and TV stars, Kensington and Chelsea is a vast district that includes the districts of Bromton, Chelsea, Earl’s Court, Holland Park, Kensington, Notting Hill and Knightsbridge.
In short, a piece of London to visit absolutely.
And 9flats helps you choose your London apartment or hostel.

Latest reviews for places in London
Overall, a very good experience and I would definitely rent it again. Very clean, nice space, quiet location and tons of character.
Dryer didn't work well, which was a bit frustrating. Due to heatwave, a fan would have been a welcomed addition. While we didn't have small children, there was no barrier on the front "door" by the main kitchen and living area on the loft. Perhaps adding a few additional horizontal bars could be an inexpensive option to add some safety while still maintaining the aesthetic of the flat. A 3 story drop wouldn't be good for a child, or anyone. Finally, I expected the eclectic decor, which was generally cool. I'd suggest a bit less taxidermy, and the crucifix with skull and cross bones was a bit offensive.Jeffrey reviewed Framery Loft in Hoxton
It is a lovely apartment and in a great location for our purpose. So near to London Bridge station and lots of cafes and restaurants. It is well decorated and equipped. The only thing I would say is that it really doesn't sleep 6 people comfortably. It is a one bedroomed apartment. The double bed and double sofa bed in the living area are fine but the blow up double bed is not ideal - even for kids. Our family of 5 enjoyed our stay there though.Cathy reviewed Stylish Warehouse Apt London Bridge in Borough

We weren't in the place we thought we would be. The adress was a different one, but as it was more in the center we absolutely did not mind, in contrary it was great for us!Tessa reviewed 7 Minutes to London Bridge (PT) in St. John's
The room we stayed at was newly refurbished, the kirchen and bathrooms were new. It was very clean.
The description of how to enter the flat was perfectly fine.
We absolutely loved it and would recommend it to anybody! We were so surprised. You pay little and get a top flat. Can't recommend more!
