Mapplr’s favorite hotels in London

It’s that time of the year when people are making travel plans for the summer. London is one of my favorite cities, but it’s not easy finding a good place to stay that’s good value at the same time. I’ve listed my favorite hotels in different areas of the city for different budgets. Personally I like staying in Notting Hill or Covent Garden because there’s so much to do and the shopping is fabulous. I will post a list of my favorite restaurants and cafes in a few days.
