Local Hotels

The following is a list of hotels in the Waterloo/Strand area. We have provided a list of hotels covering a range of budgets and levels of comfort/luxury, ranging from Premier Inn at the more affordable end of the scale right up to the Waldorf Hilton or even the Savoy at the very high end (just in case).

Among the hotels recommended by King’s Venues are Hampton Inn and H10, both very close to the Waterloo Campus. All hotels in the following list are relatively near to King’s College London and all are quite centrally located. In order to book rooms in any of these hotels please do so directly with the hotel – please see below for links to the hotel websites.

(Please also note that hotels south of the river tend to be a little more reasonably priced than those on the other side, ie those closer to the Strand, Covent Garden, Soho etc.).
