London Hotels for Families of 5, 6, 7 or 8


Finding a London Hotels for Families that accommodates 5 people, 6 people, 7 people, even 8 family members, but doesn't resemble a prison cell is not an easy task, especially in Central London. Some London hotels claim they can accommodate large families, but after entering your six family members in a search box, you'll soon discover that the "Superior Family Room" has only two twin beds and a queen. Unless your tweens like sleeping on the floor, this is simply illogical. We found several family hotels Central London that easily sleep six people...but you'd have to be crazy about bunk beds and conditions that make minimalism seem excessive. Lucky for you, we spent days sorting through more than sixty London hotel listings in order to find one that won't leave you and your family members crying. And while few of these hotels fall into the category of "boutique" or "luxury", they represent a range of hotels that are respectable, centrally located (save for one) and won't have you apologizing to family members for the entire vacation. The key to a vacation is to relax and enjoy, correct?!
