So you want to go on holiday with your family? Here are my picks for the most family-friendly hotels in London:

Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites & Residences

“They made our kids feel so special! Several nights they left incredible sweets in our room.” (Marlo on tripadvisor.com).

This is a luxury, suites-only hotel. All units have fully-equipped and surprisingly spacious kitchens and separate living rooms. They have a special Kids@Taj program. This includes free goodie bags on arrival complete with sketchbook, crayons and a Taj ‘passport’ stamped by the concierge, special child amenities in the room (such as miniature slippers and robes) and a lot of other surprising extras (don’t be surprised if they bring cookies with your kids names on them). Your kids will feel like a royalty! Tip: Make sure you book an Alice In Wonderland afternoon tea package to make your stay extra special.

The Landmark

“On arrival, there were complimentary cookies and milk for the kids and even children’s bath robes – nice touch!” (C. on Tripadvisor.com)

The spacious (amongst the largest in London) and lushly decorated, (family) rooms are perfect for the traveling family. Inter-connecting rooms can be arranged for larger families or for families with older children. Baby cots are available on request. The unique location near Madame Tussauds and London Zoo makes The Landmark London the ideal place to stay whilst spending quality time with family. Expect an in-room children’s pack that features bathrobes and slippers for young ones, and bottle warmers, baby bath tubs and highchairs as required. Tip: The hotel’s ‘Family Escape’ packages also include an indoor tent and headlamp so that children can play at camping.

Premier Inn London Holborn Hotel

“Really, the best deal for families in what can be a very expensive location to travel.” (K. on Tripadvisor.com).

Not everyone has enough money to stay in a 5 star hotel with the whole family. So there had to be at least one low budget option on this list. Don’t expect grand luxury. But clean family rooms with plenty of room, comfortable beds and free breakfast for the kids is fair enough. The great location is a major plus.
