Ever wanted a hotel with a view in London? We’ve prepared a list of the best London hotels that provides you with a view of the London Eye!

Built in 2000, the London Eye is the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe. The Eye takes you up to 135m in the air, offering stunning views of the city, before bringing you back down again. The Eye is one of those things you have to do in London – so, naturally, the queue is horrendous.

To skip the crowds and waiting time, why not get a hotel room that lets you admire the Eye anytime you wish?

1. The Royal Horseguards (from USD 202)

Located between the River Thames and Trafalgar Square, The Royal Horseguards is a 5-star hotel that offers a luxurious mix of history and modernity. The historic building overlooks the London Eye, offering stunning views of the Ferris wheel. The rooms are stately and elegant, with modern touches such as an iPod dock and free WiFi. The Royal Horseguards was awarded the prestigious AA London Hotel of the Year Award 2010-2011.

“Staff were excellent from the moment we walked into the time we left. The Central location was a huge bonus too.” – Peter, United Kingdom

2. Premier Inn London Waterloo (from USD 169)

Located in the heart of London, the Premier Inn London Waterloo offers you a comfortable and affordable stay at a prime spot. Some rooms in this hotel offer views of the London Eye – but do note that it’s the back of the London Eye that you’ll be seeing. It’s still a great view though! You’re only a stone’s throw away from the Eye, the River Thames and Waterloo Station. For such a central location, this Premier Inn is really a steal.


3. Park Plaza London Waterloo (from USD 164)

A little further upstream than the other hotels, the Park Plaza London Waterloo still offers great views of the London Eye against the city skyline. To get a good view of the Eye, it’s best to let the staff know while you’re booking – you’ll need to be on one of the higher floors. Modern and sleek, this hotel is particularly good for couples. Be sure to try out the buffet breakfast!

For many of these hotels, rooms that offer a view of the Eye are in short supply. You have to be high enough, first of all, and you have to be facing the right direction. It’s important to book early, and to specify that you would like a room with a view of the Eye!
