A Michelin star for Gloucester Road

We at Serviced City Pads have some beautifully appointed serviced apartments in London, with our Apart Hotel in Gloucester Road, South Kensington, being particularly popular with food lovers, being in London’s most prestigious restaurant area.

Bibendum, in Fulham Road, couldn’t be in a better position for a restaurant: it’s located on the first floor of Michelin House – a splendid art deco building that was, until 1985, the UK headquarters of the famous French tyre manufacturers. Bibendum is the name of Michelin’s chubby mascot and his art deco image stares down as you tuck into a French-inspired menu, which also includes an oyster bar downstairs.

If you don’t want to travel that far, then our serviced apartments in London’s Gloucester Road are close to the equally prestigious 1880 at the Bentley hotel. Nicknamed “Versace on acid”, it makes the Cafe Royal look like McDonald’s. The glistening chandeliers and gold ormolu are matched by an a la carte menu of up to 10 courses.  Alternatively, just pop in for afternoon Tiffin.

If it’s celebrity stardom you’re after, you’ll have to book well in advance for Ramsay’s restaurant – the only TV chef-owned restaurant to have earned the coveted Michelin 3 stars. Instead, head for Sticky Fingers. If you think it sounds like a Rolling Stones album, you’ll be right – it’s owned by Bill Wyman.

Our luxury serviced apartments in London come complete with kitchens. With restaurants like these on the doorstep, it’s not surprising most people eat out.
