Q&A: Cheap Gay-Friendly London Hotels

Crowds hoping to glimpse the queen at Buckingham Palace. Poor fools.

Question from a reader about finding a cheap, but nice and gay-friendly London hotel.


I am planning a trip to London in the next few months and am having a difficult time finding information on reasonable yet clean and modern lodging. While I realize that London is one of the most expensive cities to visit I can’t help thinking that there must be a hidden secret that you may be aware of.  I am a man in my 50’s and would like a small quiet “home base” for the many side trips and adventures I plan on having.

The first property that comes to mind is the Hotel Indigo Paddington. The prices are a steal and has modern decor. The location is steps away from Paddington station which is great.  The Bermondsey Square Hotel is another good option. Reasonable, contemporary and in a really up-and-coming neighborhood. There’s Base2Stay and B+B Belgravia. Both are fantastic and affordable.
