St. Paul’s tube station is on Ludgate Hill, the highest point in the City of London, providing immediate access to the famous St. Paul’s Cathedral, as well as to an interesting part of London. St. Paul’s, while minutes away from the chaotic bustle of Oxford Street, is actually a part of the area known as the City or the Square Mile. Along with New York, the City is one of the global financial centres of the entire world, and is a land of serene, monolithic buildings and institutions, of which the Cathedral is only one (though it plays host to tourists more than bankers). The Cathedral is an amazing building: the tallest one in London for over 250 years until the 1960s, the massive dome can still take your breath away. However, there are plenty of other things to see nearby. St Paul’s hotels are close to both the West End and the major shopping areas, but also within a short distance of Shoreditch, one of London’s trendiest and most inventive areas. The Thames and the South Bank are very close, with the Tate Modern being just on the other side of the Millennium Bridge. Cultural centres like the Barbican and the Museum of London are also within easy walking distance.
St. Paul's hotels are in a prime location, and most don’t come cheap. The area can also vary hugely in how busy it gets. 320,000 bankers swarm to work there every weekday, choking the underground, but at the weekends it is left to the area’s 8000 residents, and can seem like a ghost town. There’s more than the usual number of apartment accommodations near St. Paul’s, of which the most luxurious is the five star Market View Apartments, replete with beautiful furnishings and private balconies, and located in the centre of historic London meat market Smithfield.
For visitors wanting the complete hotel experience, the best is the four star Club Quarters of St. Paul’s, whose 260 rooms are decorated in an intimate, minimalist style, and which also boasts two excellent restaurants, including Côte Brasserie, a bistro voted “Best Value Restaurant in the UK” by the Good Food Guide.
On the opposite end of the price spectrum is Sundial Court, a rare one star establishment that doubles as the student residences for the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. The rooms are very small, the amenities are few and the bathrooms are shared, but the price is nice for such a central location.
St. Paul’s tube station is in Zone 1, on the Central Line between Chancery Lane and Bank.
