A number of London hotels have been listed by Tripadvisor for being the best in the UK. In total, seven establishments made the top ten UK list, with one London hotel also securing the top spot.

The familiar reviewing platform has confirmed its 2023 Traveller’s Choice Best of the Best Hotels lists, including one ranking for venues across the UK as well as another for establishments across the world. It may come as no surprise to Londoners that a few of the city's hotels have been rated highly.

In particular, one London hotel features on both the UK and world top ten hotel lists. The Shangri-La The Shard was considered the best in the UK, while it placed 4th best in the world.

Some of the other hotels that feature on the UK list are also based in central. From Mayfair to near Buckingham Palace, many call London's inner city home.
