Top Four Reasons Why Luxury Apartments Make a Better Choice than Hotels in London

Updated on May 22, 2015

There’s an awful lot to consider when planning a visit to London. How will you get here? What famous landmarks will you visit during your stay? Which of the countless top restaurants will you book for that special evening meal? The list, as they say, goes on.

Though right at the very top of that list, there’s one decision you need to make that could prove to be all the difference between the trip of a lifetime and the holiday from hell.

That of course, is where to stay.

There’s no shortage of options in London. From budget accommodation to five-star hotels, you can pretty much take your pick. But before you do, have you considered forgoing the usual hotel stay altogether and opting for a break in a luxury London apartment?

No? Here’s just four reasons why they might just make a better choice for your next visit to London.

Luxury living at a fraction of the cost

Taking advantage of London’s status as one of the world’s most popular destinations for tourists and business travellers alike, hotels in the city frequently charge premium prices for their rooms. With a stay at a luxury apartment in City Road, Covent Garden, or any number of other prized locations, you’ll still enjoy all the style and comfort of those expensive hotels without spending a fortune.

Come and go as you please

Sometimes, a stay at even the nicest of hotels can feel a bit like being at boarding school. You’re told what time to be down for breakfast, what time dinner is served, and even told to use a different entrance if you’re coming back to your room late at night.

Opt for a serviced apartment instead, and you make the rules. Eat when you like, go out whenever you like, and enjoy a greater sense of freedom on your trip to London.

Peace and quiet

There’s nothing worse than getting to your hotel room, ready to enjoy a good night’s sleep after a long journey, only to find you’ve got a loud neighbour in the next room. Again, that’s not something you have to worry about when you stay in a London apartment. Rather, you’ll have your own private residence offering all the peace and quiet you could possibly hope for.

Lots more space

After a long day seeing the sights or conducting business, there’s nothing more rewarding than heading back to your accommodation, ready to really relax and unwind. If you’re staying in a hotel, this is much harder to do given the fairly limited amount of space at your disposal. With a luxury apartment on the other hand, you’ve got lots more room to stretch out and kick back, and you still won’t be paying as much as you would for a cramped hotel room.
