UK hotels ratings.
This is a general Lodging guide and not specific to any individual hotel or accommodation type.
Scale 1-5
1 star: cheap and cheerful, hostel type accommodation, basic services.
2 stars: slightly better facilities, still cheap/budget/hostel class.
3 stars: middle ground between better facilities, services and budget accommodation.
4 stars: at this level a good all round standard is expected in all areas, facilities, services. Expect personal services such as concierge, 24 hour reception and daily maid service.
5 stars: At this level the hotel would expect to be of a luxury standard in all areas, facilities and services.
Ratings are usually given by a body such as the English Tourist Board or a recognised organisation such as the AA although in some cases the lodging ratings may be self rated.
Room sizes are always something that often surprises first time London visitors. Generally room sizes are smaller than those in many other countries. This is more prevalent in B&B type accommodation where the building is a conversion (the large majority of them) and not a purpose built hotel.
If you would like to ride on a traditional old fashioned double decker routemaster bus in central London then routes 9 (Hammersmith to Aldwych) and 15 (Paddington to Blackwall) still use them.
Totally new Routemasters hit London streets in 2012 and run on the 38 route from Victoria to Hackney.
Officially the centre of London is taken as Charing Cross Station. However as far as the tourist heart of the capital is concerned it is really on the South East side of the central areas. For the purposes of measuring distances on this website we use Piccadilly Circus as the point of reference as we believe in the real world it represents the central tourist heart of London for most people. The distance between the two is actually only 0.4 miles.
