How to find the best hotels

London is jam-packed with all different types of hotels, from the little to the large. The most important factor when choosing a good hotel is the location. Ideally, they need to be in close proximity to where you will be working, to avoid late-starts or long journeys.

Other factors to consider include the technology on offer, the degree of comfort available in your room, what type of eating facilities there are, and whether there are ways to de-stress (such as the gym or spa). The best hotel for you will also depend on budget – many of the chains offer great deals when booking for larger groups.

Some key business hotels in London to consider, as recommended by TripAdvisor, include Aloft, Andaz Hotel, citizenM London Shoreditch, Claridge’s, Great Northern Hotel, Ham Yard Hotel, Hoxton Hotel, ME by Meliá, Savoy and Shangri-La Hotel at The Shard.

Getting around London

There are many ways to get around London, including buses and trains. However, for the most stress-free and comfortable option, you can also book a private chauffeur. This will ensure you get collected from your destination at your desired time and taken in luxury to where you need to go. It also means you won’t have to sweat it out on public transport, often with limited seats and lots of noise.

This will give you time to make those all-important phone calls, go over any private or confidential information, or review documents for your next meeting. You can easily book a chauffeur, and organising a return trip will ensure they’re able to get you to and from all appointments.

How to get good Wi-Fi

Much of London offers either 3G or 4G connection, meaning roaming online is quick, easy and hassle-free. However, you can also get good Wi-Fi in most restaurants, cafes and hotels. Sometimes you will be required to input a password, which will be made available to you by a member of staff.

High-quality restaurants
London is a fantastic place to head to for the best in fine dining. There are hundreds of restaurants across the city, offering a range of cuisine from Chinese to Indian, American to traditional British food. Some of the most popular include Restaurant Gordon Ramsay on Royal Hospital Road, Marcus (once known as Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley) in Knightsbridge, The Square in Mayfair, Hélène Darroze at The Connaught, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal in Knightsbridge, The Ritz Restaurant, and Hibiscus on Maddox Street.

Getting to each of these places, especially in the evening when you are wearing your finery, is best via private chauffeur. You can travel to and from your meal in the height of comfort, starting your evening as you mean to go on.

Filled with famous landmarks, historical monuments, and art galleries galore, London is the perfect place to escape for the day, and there’s no better way to see it than from the backseat of a luxurious chauffeur driven car.

 

There is no other place quite like London, especially in summertime. Although it can still suffer from the grey skies and rain that typically plague the rest of the UK, southern climes tend to be much more pleasant, with warm weather, sunshine, and balmy breezes almost always thrown into the mix.
