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?

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on June 21, 2024.

1. Corinthia London (from USD 1935)

Set in the heart of London, the rooms and suites of this luxe hotel present unrivaled views of the Thames. Guests can enjoy catching up on their favorite shows on television in the comfort of the plush bed. Marble bathrooms with underfloor heating are all the more comforting during colder months. Enjoy a leisurely shower in the bathtub after a long day of traveling. You can catch a breathtakingly beautiful view of the London Eye, The Shard, and St. Paul’s Cathedral from the rooftop.

A gastronome’s dream come true, the restaurant Kerridge’s serves Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge’s carefully curated menus. Enjoy sparkling champagne at the cocktail bar, Velvet. You can have an intimate alfresco dinner with a loved one in The Winter Garden.

The swimming pool has a jet stream that lets you enjoy a unique swimming experience against the current. You do not have to miss out on cardio when a fully equipped gym is on-site. For added luxury, guests can request the concierge to arrange a chauffeur-driven car for their stay.

Eye Spy...

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!
