These boutique hotels in London will still go out of their way for your dog, but without the expensive price tag. Best of all, dogs stay free at all of them!

The Rubens at the Palace

If your budget doesn’t stretch to the luxurious surrounds of 41 (see above), head next door to the 4-star Rubens at the Palace. While the decor is more modern and boldly coloured, the perks for four-legged guests are virtually the same.

On arrival your pet will be welcomed with a welcome hamper, including a toy, treat and welcome letter about the special pet services, from dog sitting to birthday cakes for special celebrations. Your dog will sleep in a custom-made Rubens pet bed, receive a turndown treat and have access to a special pet menu.

The Ampersand

A classic townhouse hotel in South Kensington, about half of the rooms at The Ampersand are pet-friendly, including the larger Deluxe rooms, Deluxe Studios and Suites. When checking in with a pet, you’ll be provided with a dog basket, treats, bowls and dog food.

While the on-site restaurant is unfortunately not dog-friendly, it’s possible to enjoy a light bite or afternoon tea in the botanically-inspired Drawing Rooms with your pooch at your side. It’s also just a short walk from the hotel to Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.

One Hundred Shoreditch

Happy to be a dog-friendly hotel, One Hundred Shoreditch provides dog beds, bowls and extra special little treats to make them feel at home, for the small charge of £30 per stay. Dogs are even welcome inside the front section of Goddard & Gibbs restaurant (as long as they are shorter than the table), plus the wine bar, lobby bar and coffee shop.

Looking for somewhere affordable in London to stay with your dog? While the perks may not be as many, these hotels will still welcome your dog as a guest.

Town Hall Hotel & Apartments

The main advantage of the Town Hall Hotel & Apartments’ Bethnal Green location is that this stylish hotel is a lot more affordable than if it was in the city centre. Not that it takes long to walk to the nearby tube station and head anywhere in the city.

Dogs are welcome to stay with you at the Town Hall Hotel & Apartments for an additional £25 per night, plus a £60 deposit. Just make sure they are kept leashed in public areas, and the indoor pool is just for human guests to enjoy.

The Corner London City

Just a 15 minute walk from the Tower of London, the colourful and quirky touches to the reception and rooms at the Corner London City will put you and your dog in a playful mood. Dogs are allowed in a limited number of rooms (so book in advance) and there’s a small park just next door.

An additional charge of £20 per stay applies, or else enquire about their Pooch & Prosecco package.

St Athans Hotel

An extra-affordable stay in pricey London, you’ll often find rooms with shared bathrooms for around £150 per night at St Athans Hotel. The location is extra-convenient too, with Kings Cross / St Pancras International Stations and the British Museum just a short walk away.

Make sure you let this pet-friendly hotel know you’ll be bringing a pet when you book a room, with both dogs and cats welcome, as long as they are well-behaved and dogs are not left alone in rooms. Please bring your own pet’s bedding, plus a £150 deposit applies for pets. Read their full pet policy.

Novotel London ExCel

Although the rack rates at the 4-star Novotel London Excel aren’t exactly low, extra cheap rates can often be found online, probably when there’s nothing on at the nearby Excel Convention Centre.

It’s located to the east of London, near the Olympic Stadium and the Emirates Air Line. Dog-friendly rooms should be requested in advance, with an additional charge of £15 per dog, per night.

  1. Shhh – the St Athans is supposed to be a secret. Run by a family that owns what is now a hugely valuable central London site, it maintains its budget traveller ethos simply because they don’t want it to change.

    Another good bet is the Clarendon on Blackheath, another great location and usually reasonable prices, dog friendly lounge (where you can carry your breakfast) and bar (which serves meals).

    • Thanks for the tip Ian! Yes, the St Athans is such a rare find – although they still do have it listed on the regular booking sites, so it’s not entirely secret!
