Accor (Sofitel, Novotel, Ibis, Mercure, Pullman etc) has the best ‘last minute’ scheme of ANY UK hotel chain.
Every Monday and Tuesday, it makes rooms available for the following two weekends at aggressively low prices. Ibis hotels outside London are just £25 per night. At the top end, the Pullman hotel in London is just £90. The other brands are priced between £25 and £90.
Full details of how ‘Happy Mondays’ works are in this article. One smart thing to do is book a UK hotel room as a points redemption with another chain and then, two weeks before the stay, cancel it and rebook on a ‘Happy Mondays’ rate.
This week, the offer is extended
To ‘celebrate’ Blue Monday, which is apparently the most depressing day of the New Year (fully back at work, not been paid yet, regretting quitting the booze for a month ….), Accor has extended the offer.
If you book today (Tuesday 17th) via this special page, you can access super low rates for the following nights:
- Friday 20th
- Saturday 21st
- Sunday 22nd
- Monday 23rd
- Friday 27th
- Saturday 28th
- Sunday 29th
- Monday 30th
The usual ‘Happy Mondays’ pricing applies:
- £25 – ibis hotels outside London, some ibis Budget inside London
- £40 – Novotel and Mercure outside London, ibis London hotels, selected Mercure and Novotel London hotels
- £60 – Mercure, Novotel, ibis styles in London
- £90– Pullman (only St Pancras is participating)
In reality, some of the Ibis London pricing looks lower than the list above if you take a look at the participating properties.
Remember that you need to book TODAY for the dates above. The booking link is here.
