Over the last year or so I have ended up going to London way more than I had ever even been in my entire life – mostly because of blogging, but also having a Merlin Annual Pass has meant that we can do lots of fun things in London but for free! Quite often that has also meant that I have needed somewhere to stay for the night too.
In London though, it can be pretty hard to find a decent-ish hotel at a good price. Even a Premier Inn, which is usually what I tend to go for in other cities, can be very expensive in the capital. A year or so ago though I found the HotelTonight app – and it is amazing! It allows you to find hotels in lots of cities, including London at great prices if you are booking late.
You can only use it to book ahead for up to 7 days, so it’s no good for planning trips in further in advance (unless you’re a risktaker and fancy waiting to book a special trip at the last minute!), but usually booking a hotel late notice in London in particular can mean that you end up paying way over the odds.
The HotelTonight app seems to always have brilliant deals on some really lovely hotels and you can often get a beautiful 4 or 5* hotel that you wouldn’t normally be able to afford, at the same price as a budget hotel – for example The Threadneedles Hotel, and The Apex Hotel – both of which I have stayed in after booking through the app and absolutely loved. Both of those hotels would generally be way out of my price range usually.
It’s a great app to have if you often end up travelling at the last minute, and a great way to get amazing deals on hotels in London.
You can get £15 off your first booking with the Hotel Tonight app using the code LHEGARTY5 – that means you can get a total bargain!
