Planning a trip to London and want to make sure that the photos of you draped across the Buckingham Palace Guards get uploaded right away?
According to Booking.com reviewers these hotels have the best WiFi in London*.
Kandara Guest House
1. Kandara Guest House, Islington, London
It may be an unassuming guest house on a quiet residential street, but Kandara Guest House has the best WiFi in London. With an easy, fast connection that bypasses fiddly landing pages, the Kandara WiFi is praised by reviewers around the world.
The Hoxton Holborn
2. The Hoxton Holborn, Camden, London
This Camden-based hotel has a high-speed WiFi connection and, most importantly for our reviewers, it’s free throughout the building. Not just in the bedrooms. And, for those occasions when email just won’t cut it, every guest is given an hour of free phone calls to the UK, Australia, and most of Europe.
citizenM London Shoreditch
3. citizenM London Shoreditch, Hackney, London
It’s not really surprising that two citizenM hotels made it into this list, especially as everything in citizenM Shoreditch runs on the WiFi. From the electronic check-in and the iPad controlled temperature, lighting and TV in every room, through to the tablet-wielding staff.
4. Leman Locke, Tower Hamlets, London
Leman Locke sits right in the middle of the famous East London Tech City. In addition to the fast, reliable, WiFi, each apartment has it’s own Samsung Smart TV and Apple TV Box.
5. Claridge’s, Westminster, London
Don’t be fooled by Claridge’s historic status, its technology and connectivity is as fresh and new as any modern tech-hotel. Our reviewers love Claridge’s high speed WiFi, almost as much as they love the 1930’s Fumoir and Art Deco reading room.
citizenM London Bankside
6. citizenM London Bankside, Southwark, London
citizenM Bankside has all the modcons also on offer at the Shoreditch branch, plus free iMac rental for guests. Guests in need of paper tickets (yes, some London attractions are yet to embrace QR codes) can make use of the hotel’s free printing services.
Ham Yard Hotel
7. Ham Yard Hotel, Westminster, London
Only 3 minutes walk from Picadilly Circus: Ham Yard Hotel is an oasis in the middle of bustling London. An oasis that understands the importance of high-speed WiFi, iPad docking stations in every room, and internet access throughout the building (even in the spa).
The Soho Hotel
8. The Soho Hotel, Westminster, London
There must be something in the fiber optics around this part of London because three of the best hotels are only a few minutes walk from each other. The Soho Hotel has WiFi running throughout the building and guests are only a short walk from Oxford Circus.
Charlotte Street Hotel
9. Charlotte Street Hotel, Westminster, London
While the bedrooms here have a lovingly-detailed mid-20th century design, thankfully, the hotel’s commitment to this theme doesn’t extend to the WiFi, which is available throughout the building.
Hostel Goodenough College
10. Hostel Goodenough College, Camden, London
The Hostel Goodenough College University Residence is mainly home to long term students and while visitors praise the hostel’s WiFi they also love the location; just 15 minutes walk to the British Museum and King’s Cross Station. (We’d like to take this opportunity to salute the Booking.com reviewers who worked so hard to get the maximum number of puns out of the Goodenough’s name)
