So, you’re looking for the best vegan hotels London has to offer? As far as a 100% vegan hotel London doesn’t have any (yet!). But don’t worry that your search for a London vegan hotel has come up empty, because there are plenty of vegan friendly hotels in London, and here are a few of my favourites.

  1. Selina Camden (vegan friendly)

    A modern hotel & hostel in vegan hotspot Camden with vegan restaurant on site. Not a fully vegan hotel, so bring your own vegan toiletries. Choose from shared or private rooms.

    Check availability
  2. Vegan Suite at Hilton London Bankside

    Hilton's Bankside, London location is home to their first ever all-vegan suite: free from animal products and furniture, and it has a vegan mini bar and vegan room service menu!

    Check Availability
  3. Temple Lodge Club, London (vegetarian)

    This small B&B is next to The Gate vegetarian restaurant and has cosy rooms with cotton and linen bedroom. Request non-down duvet.

    Check availability
  4. Clink261 Hostel London

    If you're looking for a budget option in Central London, this hostel near Kings Cross is well connected (lots of tube lines) and near vegan restaurants.

    Check availability
  5. Glass House Retreat, Essex (vegan friendly)

    All the food at this spa & retreat in Essex (just outside London) is vegan, but annoyingly, the products they use in the spa aren't vegan (they're not cruelty-free).

    Check availability

In terms of the vegan accommodation London has, you’ll find vegan-friendly B&Bs, hotels and even an all-vegan hotel suite if you want to plump for something fancy, perfect if you follow a vegan lifestyle and want to splurge on a luxury vegan experience.

Vegan travelers know it’s not always easy getting plant-based breakfasts or a vegan meal from room service in a hotel, so staying in a vegan-friendly hotel can certainly make things easier. London is home to some of the best vegan restaurants and innumerable vegan-friendly restaurants (most London restaurants have vegan options these days), so it’s easy to follow a vegan diet in London – but nothing beats the ease of having plant-based cuisine on offer in your hotel.


Vegan suite at Hilton Bankside London

Luxury Vegan Hotel London: the Vegan Suite at Hilton London Bankside

London unfortunately doesn’t have any 100% vegan hotels just yet, but if you’re looking for a luxurious stay, then the vegan hotel suite at the Hilton’s Bankside location is your best bet.

Hilton really went above and beyond in their attention to detail and received the seal of approval from the Vegan Society.

The suite was designed by Bompas & Parr and when it launched in 2019, they said it was the world’s first vegan suite (presumably meaning in a non-vegan hotel, seeing as all the guest rooms in vegan hotels are vegan). Everything in the suite is vegan (even the furnishings are made from plant-based materials), from the pineapple leather furniture to the eco-friendly organic cotton carpets and the vegan mini-bar.

In the room, which is cleaned with vegan and eco-friendly products, you’ll find a vegan room service menu and vegan, cruelty-free toiletries.

The hotel’s restaurant serves a vegan menu, and guests of the vegan suite are seated at a separate ‘vegan table’, whose chairs are upholstered with pineapple leather (rather than the leather used on the chairs at the rest of the hotel).

Of course, with London’s massive vegan scene (it now has more vegan restaurants than any other city in the world), you’ll probably want to explore some of London’s vegan offerings.

Be sure to select the vegan suite when you book.

Vegan-friendly hotel: Selina Camden

This beautifully designed hotel is a newcomer to the London scene, and while not a vegan hotel, has an on-site vegan restaurant, Powerplant!

A great budget option, choose between a private en-suite room or dormitory/hostel.

Located in vegan-friendly Camden, if you follow a plant-based lifestyle you’ll have plenty of vegan restaurants to explore and vegan treats to try, such as:

  • Powerplant, the vegan restaurant located inside the hotel
  • Manna (London’s oldest vegan restaurant) in nearby Primrose Hill
  • Purezza vegan pizza
  • Mildred’s
  • Temple of Seitan (vegan friend chicken and burgers)
  • What the Pitta (vegan kebabs)
  • Vegan stalls at Camden market

You can even go on a vegan food tour of Camden!

As it’s not a vegan hotel, don’t expect vegan toiletries or a vegan mini bar (like in Hilton’s luxury vegan suite), but there’s the benefit of having a vegan restaurant on-site. The hotel also offers yoga classes.

The nearest tube station is Chalk Farm, and most of the restaurants listed above are in Camden, a short walk away.

Room in Temple Lodge club: attic room with bed and rug

Vegetarian bed and breakfast London: Temple Lodge

Looking for an all vegan B&B? London doesn’t have one — but it does have a vegetarian B&B! Temple Lodge is a vegetarian bed and breakfast located in a Georgian property in Hammersmith, near the river.

Tucked away in a quiet spot away from the hustle and bustle of Central London, Temple Lodge is best if you like a quiet place to stay and don’t mind taking the tube into Central London.

Room rates include an organic breakfast, and next door to the B&B you’ll find a branch of The Gate, one of London’s most popular vegetarian restaurants (and most of their menu is now vegan!). Don’t miss the miso aubergine — it’s one of my favourites.

The hotel uses eco-friendly materials such as natural cotton and linen bedding but their duvets are down so you should request a different duvet if you want (please let me know if they accommodate you — I haven’t stayed here and I’d like to know if they will!).

Bedroom in Kew Gardens B and B: attic room with chair and TV on chest of drawers

Kew Gardens B&B

This vegetarian hotel in London is another option if you don’t mind travelling into the city centre. Set in a Victorian house, Kew Gardens B&B is another vegetarian B&B that’s away from London’s busy centre.

Located further away than Temple Lodge in Richmond, you’ll need to be up for a pretty long tube journey if you’re going to stay here. However, you’ll be rewarded with a peaceful riverside suburb.

Vegetarian breakfast is included with the room rates with vegan options. Rooms include a TV and private bathroom, and you can use a kitchenette.

Room of bunk beds in Clink261 hostel, London

On the budget end of the spectrum, Clink261 hostel is a good option. Formerly, they had a hostel nearby called Clink78, which was in a converted jail, but it seems to have closed temporarily (or possibly permanently) and they’ve opened this hostel, Clink261, just down the road.

Clink261 is in a former students union.

It’s a good location for vegans and they’ve even put together a vegan guide on their site, though I wouldn’t use it as a guide for your trip as it’s pretty out of date and half the restaurants listed have now closed.

Back on the area, it’s great for vegans because there are lots of options in the area (I should know, I lived there on and off for a decade!), such as my favourite Japanese restaurant in London, Itadaki Zen, and Mildred’s Kings Cross branch.

Vegan Airbnbs in London

Whether you want to save money or just have a more homey experience, there are a number of vegan Airbnbs in London now, as well as accommodation to be found on Vegvisits, a site which calls itself the Airbnb for vegans and vegetarians.

From accommodation in a room in a shared flat to entire flats, there are a number of options.

Airbnb doesn’t make it easy to search for vegan accommodation as it’s not provided as a filter and you can’t search by keyword.

That’s why I prefer Vegvisits, since it’s set up specifically for vegans. However, there are a few vegetarian and vegan rooms on Airbnb I came across like this one near Brick Lane.

On Vegvisits, on the other hand, there are currently eight listings in London, from a double en-suite in a vegan flat near King’s Cross to a vegan room in Wimbledon, where you’ll live with an adorable dog.

You can also rent a whole townhouse with a garden in vegan-friendly Hackney. On Vegvisits, you can also filter by options such as whether the accommodation has a juicer or dehydrator, and whether vegan breakfast or vegan snacks are provided. 

Room in Glasshouse retreat, Essex: two double beds side by side and chairs

Glass House Retreat, Essex

Located near London, Glass House is a new retreat centre serving all-vegan food. The nearest tube station is Upminster and you can get a cab from the station to the retreat.

If you’ve been looking for a vegan-friendly or vegan spa hotel in London, this is the first! Unfortunately, while they serve vegan food, the spa treatments aren’t vegan.

At present they use Elemis products which aren’t vegan (it used to be cruelty-free but no longer is).

So forego a facial and opt instead to enjoy the all-vegan food and the facilities, which include a natural outdoor swimming pond, indoor pool, sauna and steam room.

They also have a range of classes including yoga and meditation. You can indulge in vegan afternoon tea or a cooking class, and they have vegan and raw food menus.
