London is the largest city in central Europe and is a buzzing and vibrant place. It is full of history, culture and heritage attracting millions of visitors from across the globe each year. There is something for everyone in this amazing city whether you’re visiting on business; for a tour of the sights like Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace; a trip to a gallery or museum such as the National Portrait Gallery; or perhaps a chance to enjoy the fashionable bars, clubs and designer stores in swanky Convent Garden; London has it all.

London accommodation is varied and plentiful. Many choose to stay in a traditional style hotel but more and more people are opting for a short term rent on a serviced apartment. Apartments are a great option when travelling for either business or leisure and many prefer the freedom and flexibility such accommodation offers. London hotel rooms are notoriously small and standard hotel rooms, whilst adequate enough, tend to be much of a muchness where ever you go. Apartments on the other hand tend to be more spacious and can offer more of a flavour of real city apartments in London.

If you are travelling alone then a single bedroom studio apartment may be just what you are looking for. If you are travelling with friends or family then a larger apartment with additional rooms may be more appropriate. Renting an apartment can often be a better deal as prices are per night, not per person. Modern apartments will be tastefully decorated and offer a range of modern home comforts that you simply wouldn’t find in a hotel. A serviced apartment will also provide a maid service to make the beds and clean the apartment leaving you more time to explore the city or concentrate on your meeting.

This is a huge city and in London accommodation can be found in or near all the major tourist and business areas such as the Hyde Park executive apartments. Whether you prefer a leafy garden square in Kensington or something more central and bustling, you will find your ideal London accommodation near key transport routes such as the underground. London has one of the most comprehensive and easy to use public transport networks in the world. Get yourself a London Travelcard or even an Oyster Card which will allow you to travel freely around the capital without having to stop for individual tickets each time you want to go somewhere; it will save you money too.

Whatever your reason for travelling to London, be it long term or short term, business or leisure, when it comes to London accommodation a serviced apartment will offer you value for money, privacy and freedom to come and go as you please. With all the home comforts plus maid service it is the ideal base from which to explore the city.
