A Different Kind of London City Apartments
Whenever someone mentions London City apartments, it’s hard not to think of some kind of swanky crash pad way out of the price league of a normal business or
holidaying family. The city apartment has long been an alternative to hotel living, both for business and pleasure – but in general terms it’s been seen as a
level up from hotels: so more expensive, more expansive and less attainable even than the average City hotel room.
Some of this is true – London City apartments are certainly more expansive than hotel rooms. But that’s where the correctness of the claim ends.
New London City apartments offer everything you’d expect from an apartment – space, home comforts, entertainment, a good location – but at the price you would
pay for an average hotel room in the same place. In other words: business and pleasure just got a lot more amenable.
You only have to look at some of the amenities included in a standard London City apartments package to understand just how different the new breed of serviced
apartment really is. For a per apartment price (rather than charging per head), occupants get wireless internet, cable TV, DVDs and of course all the normal
comforts of home. Once a week the apartment gets cleaned and has fresh linen put in – and if you want to have fresh linen more often all you have to do is ask.
It’s provided without extra cost though you have to put it on the beds yourselves if it isn’t a normal cleaning day.
When you think about the differences between these London City apartments and the hotels they aim to supplant, it’s hardly a wonder that business people and
holidaying families have both started to gravitate towards them.
Let’s suppose, for example, that you have decided to take your better half out for a night on the town, perhaps to a show or an exhibition, to celebrate an
anniversary. In the old days you’d have paid through the nose for a good hotel room and kept on paying for champagne, flowers and so on.
In serviced London City apartments you can either cook a romantic meal yourself, or get someone in to do it. You can have champagne supplied at much more
reasonable prices. And you can stay for as long as you want, making a special weekend or week of it without breaking the bank.
Location is always important of course – and the new London City apartments are right at the heart of things. So no transport stress for business people who need
to make their meetings on time – and no being away from the action when you are there for pleasure. Instead you just get comfort, convenience and the dream of
every visitor to the big city – a place just like home, right around the corner.
