If it’s your first time in London, you might fall in love with London and with the Carnival … Beware! But you might want to see more than the Carnival and do other things as well.  Below are a few tips to help you choose  your accommodation :

Enjoy the buzz around trendy East London

East London is a very trendy area where there is a lot too see day time and a very buzzing nightlife.  From Graffiti to Vintage shop, Street Food Markets and rooftop bars, East London is perfect to enjoy London like a Local. It also very well connected with the rest of the city.

Go for Hostels or Bed & Breakfast

Hostels are perfect to meet other travellers and get useful advices to make the most of your stay. Hostels are not always “dodgy”! Prefer rooms for 4 to 6 people, shared with your friends, rather than large 12 to 15 beds dormitories.
Hostels are perfect if you like to go with the flow and love to meet people from other cultures.

Hotels and Beds and Breakfast are also a great option to stay in nice and sometimes original and quirky buildings. The owners will be able to recommend you the best all-inclusives deals to visit landmaks around London. If your stay is more or less pre-planned and you know exactly what you want to see, then definitely go for a hotel or a B&B.

VisitLondon provides great Hostels and Bed and Breakfast recommendation, make sure to also check Hostelworld.com and TripAdvisor at least!
