I'm looking for a hotel for 1 night in May. We'll be arriving at Waterloo and need to get to a hotel, dump stuff and change before getting to Buckingham Palace. Budget is max £250 for a night and I'd like something nice. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Have never stayed here, but it has been recommended on MN before by those who have.

The area isn't the most lovely, but would definitely be convenient for Buckingham Palace.

The Royal Horseguards Hotel is lovely - close to St James' Park/BP.

You should go on booking .com and type in exact date. The costs change a lot according to day/ weekend/ if event on nearby etc.

For £250 you can still stay in a nice hotel in Mayfair if it's not fri/ sat

There's the H10 in Waterloo a Spanish chain nice. double tree hiltons are all over London and they are nice too.

Park plaza Westminster is lovely and right beside waterloo. Nice food - even in room service. I wouldn't say the same for the Victoria one linked to above. Lovely 20 min walk to the palace past Westminster and through the park. Approx £180.

Park plaza county hall. ACE with kids

Also, whatever rate you find in 3rd party site like booking.com, phone the hotel and they'll match it for you to book direct.

Another vote for Park Plaza County Hall. Stayed with the kids last summer & it was lovely. Try & book one of their suites with a private terrace overlooking the London Eye, sometimes they offer great rates to upgrade to these after booking!

As others have said its a great location & the best hands down for kids. They get a welcome pack & plaza dollars to spend in the hotel bar on ice cream!
