Why this hotel?: Close to gay scene. Walk to Chariots sauna and Pleasuredrome.

Point A London (formerly “Tune Hotel”) offers a great night’s sleep at a really low price. Compact guest rooms feature high quality mattress, en suite bathroom with good pressure hot shower, free WiFi.

Located on the south side of the River Thames near the London Eye and South Bank and is literally just a couple of steps from Lambeth North Tube Station (Bakerloo Line).

Great for a night out at the nearby Vauxhall gay scene. Even better, Pleasuredrome gay sauna is just a couple of minutes’ walk away.

Why this hotel?: Urban chic. Convenient location. Budget choice.

The unique, very modern boutique Stylotel is hidden away behind a 19th century Victoria façade in central London, featuring 40 en suite rooms, priced to attract budget travelers who like a bit of style.

Design features include aluminium wall coverings, upholstered headboards and illuminated glass furniture. The suites have kitchenettes. A full hot & cold buffet included with most rates.

Stylotel is 2 minutes’ walk from Paddington Station and 5 minutes from Hyde Park. A 10-minute bus or underground ride will get you to the Soho gay bars. Great value for money, though often fully booked.

Why this hotel?: Great location. Halfway between Soho and Vauxhall.

This budget option is located next to Victoria Station, one of London’s major underground hubs, making it extremely easy to get around the city.

A variety of large and small comfortable modern rooms (singles to quads) are available, each of which has a newly refurbished bathroom, tea & coffee-making facilities.

Great for a short stay and perfect for a gay night out, as the hotel is halfway between the Soho and Vauxhall gay villages.

Vauxhall / South Bank

London’s 2nd largest gay village is in Vauxhall. The area is home to gay bars, saunas, cruise bars and dance clubs – all on the south side of River Thames, between Vauxhall and Waterloo bridges.

London Eye, Tate Modern, Royal Festival Theatre are all nearby, as well as restaurants & cafés on The Queen’s Walk – a pedestrian route that runs alongside the river, known as South Bank.

Why this hotel?: Near the Vauxhall gay nightlife. Excellent value.

If you’re looking for a budget hotel near the bars and nightlife in Vauxhall, then the Holiday Inn Express is worth considering.

Guest rooms are relatively small, simply furnished and have private bathrooms. While there are many dining choices nearby, the onsite restaurant serves affordable meals all day.

The Vauxhall gay village and underground station (Victoria Line) are less than 10 minutes’ walk away.
