Apart Hotels In London – What Are They?
There is accommodation in London of all kinds, from chic city apartments to rooms in apart hotels – officially known as apartment hotels. People are often confused between the two, but really there isn’t much difference between an apart hotel and other serviced apartments – in London or elsewhere.
Apart hotels are apartment complexes with a hotel style booking system. They are an extremely popular alternative to hotels, especially for those uncertain how long they will be staying for. There are no fixed contracts, and check-out can be whenever you choose.
At Serviced City Pads, we have luxury serviced apartments in London’s High Holborn Apart Hotel, which offer numerous benefits over traditional hotels. Deposits are only required for stays of 30 days or more, and you can take your meals any time. The hotel is sumptuously appointed, with large rooms at costs below what you would expect to pay for an equivalent hotel.
Extended stays in London hotel accommodation is nothing new, of course. In the 1930s, it was fashionable to have a “suite at Claridges” if you were really wealthy.
However, things have moved on. London hotels today cater mainly for short-stay visitors, rather than residential clients. Apartment hotels have taken things full circle. If you are used to conventional hotels, an apart hotel is the perfect introduction to London serviced apartments. The lobby is familiar – but there the similarity ends. Instead of rigid, minimally furnished hotel rooms you are accommodated in luxurious, fully-fitted apartments with a full range of amenities.
We at Serviced City Pads recommend our apart hotels for anyone wanting long-stay accommodation in London.
