Serviced Apartments for the London Olympics

The summer of 2012 will see one of the biggest events in the world descend on London, the Olympic Games. Only a handful of cities have been lucky enough to have hosted the games, and after hosting the 2012 games London becomes the first city to have host them 3 times. London beat Paris, Madrid, Moscow and New York to win the right to host the event in 2005 and years of planning have been done to make the games a reality.

The core of the Olympics will take place in Stratford on a massive redeveloped site which not includes the Olympic Stadium and Olympic Village, but also a huge redevelopment of the area which includes Europe’s largest urban shopping centre at Westfield and the new rail links that have built with the Olympics in mind. The area in East London has seen some much needed regeneration and should help stimulate the economy in the area for years to come.

There are some great Olympic serviced apartment options close to the site, there is a large block of serviced apartments a couple of minutes walk where you can get 1 and 2 bed apartments. Although the rates are not the cheapest as you would imagine, so unless you have extremely deep pockets, you might be better off looking elsewhere in London to get your serviced accommodation requirements.

Serviced City Pads work with numerous apartment providers across London and can offer a number of London serviced apartment options for your stay during the Olympics. The transport system in London is very good, so you can be on the other side of the centre, yet by only minutes away from the place you need to be. If you’re visiting London and looking for Olympic holiday apartments, then why not get in touch and see what’s available for your stay in London.
