Cheap London hotels 'must be upgraded'

17 Mar 2009

More must be done to improve the standards of some of London's cheapest hotels, it has been claimed.

The capital city is a favourite destination for visitors across the globe, including holidaymakers and stag parties, and was recently ranked cheaper to visit than New York for the first time since 2002.

However, Liberal Democrat member of the London Assembly and chair of the economic development of culture, sport and tourism committee Dee Doocey said some low-cost hotels in the city are "absolutely dire".

She claimed that people staying in top-class or middle-ranking establishments are treated to "a superb experience", but added that many visitors look to economise by opting for cheaper accommodation.

"A lot of people who come to London what they want to do is spend their money on the treats; maybe going to a theatre, going out, going to the sights," Ms Doocey commented.

She said that more must therefore be done to improve the standard of lower-class hotels in the city, which could come as welcome news for those contemplating a low-cost stag weekend in London in the future.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19077764-ADNFCR
