The best hotels near Oxford Street, London
Oxford Street – two words that bring instant joy or instant dismay depending, most likely, on your tolerance levels for shopping. However, this Mecca to retail that takes you from Marble Arch (and with it access to Hyde Park) right down to Tottenham Court Road (via Bond Street and Oxford Circus), is like a central vein that feeds many different hubs and therefore makes a really good place to base yourself if you’re visiting London. Also – Selfridges, Liberty, Nike Town – it’s a no-brainer for shopping.
Beyond retail, venture a few streets back from the main drag and things get interesting, and less busy. Neighbourhoods like Marylebone, Fitzrovia and Soho are some of the best in the capital for proper boozers, diverse dining and – importantly – a really buzzy atmosphere you want from a city stay.
Hotel options near Oxford Street are plentiful, it being W1, and all flavours are catered for, from hedonistic A-list hangouts with Michelin-starred chefs and ritzy five-star spas to a beautiful Georgian townhouse in Soho crammed with Jacobean furniture and many a tale to tell. It’s all there for the taking, you just have to choose; these are the best hotels near Oxford Street in London.
