2 bedroom apartments are the ideal solution for a family travelling to London together. Whether you are coming for a weekend, a week, a month or a year there are some great accommodation options for you to consider.
With your own kitchen, and your own front door, regular cleaning and complimentary WiFi you will enjoy a level of luxury and independence that hotel guests only dream of! Even on a very short stay!
The benefits of a kitchen
Generally speaking, most serviced apartments have kitchens with refrigerators and cookers. Many are even equipped with Nespresso coffee machines. So when you get up in the morning you can make your own breakfast and enjoy your own coffee in the privacy of your own “home.” No need to exchange polite “good mornings” with strangers. If you are travelling with young children this is brilliant . There is no need to keep your eyes on naughty kids (yours and other people’s!) – to make sure that they are behaving themselves in public. This is a really low stress option for families on the move with young children.
And don’t forget the calories! Research has shown that guests serving themselves from a hotel buffet are 10 times more likely to overdose on fatty foods – simply because it’s there! Many apartment residences offer welcome packs which include basic breakfast ingredients and we find that supermarkets are often happy to deliver groceries. As are Uber Eats and Deliveroo in most areas of the capital. Research amongst our guests has shown that the option to make their own meals is why they return time and time again to stay in an apartment while they are in London.
Stay near the museums
Many guests bring their children to London at half term when the big London museums such as the V & A, Science Museum and Natural History Museum have an amazing array of exhibitions, films and hands on displays all geared to the younger visitor during the school holidays and weekends.
How about close to Hyde Park?
If you have children with you who wish to let off steam then staying near Hyde Park is probably a very good idea. We offer some very nice apartments opposite the Italian Gardens with public transport on your doorstep.
Put your feet up
When your children are exhausted and you feel in need of a break, you can retire to your apartment, put your feet up and relax. You can even order a takeaway. All residences have at least one TV and many have several. With an abundance of channels, Sky, Freeview etc. there is masses for your children to watch. Just park them in front of the TV while you get out a glass of wine and put your feet up.
It’s great to know that you and your kids are all under the same roof. How often have you checked in to a hotel only to find that your children have been allocated a room along the corridor? Next door is bad enough!!! For parents to enjoy a relaxing stay, they need to know that their babies and children are totally secure. That peace of mind is guaranteed when you book a serviced apartment with it’s own front door where you and your family will all be safe and sound together so you can chill!
When it’s time for them to go to bed, bedrooms are often very well equipped, especially for children. Combinations of twin beds and cots are common so your children and babies can be comfortably accommodated in style so that both they – and YOU – get a good night’s sleep. Ready to be up and about the next day with the energy need to explore what London has to offer!
That is not to say you won’t enjoy going out for dinner. As London is one of the world’s most vibrant capitals when it comes to wining, dining and entertainment you will be spoilt for choice when you select a restaurant in London’s buzzing hub.
Mayfair – a great place to stay
In Brick Street and Hertford Street you will find some lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom luxury apartments which are all part of the Como Metropolitan group. There is a guests’ spa as well as a lovely bar and restaurant.
Luxury apartments in the Kensington area
We recommend the Milestone. This is a sumptuous property offering oodles of luxury features.
Larger apartments for the corporate family
As London is such a major hub, many corporate executives relocate here on business. And if you are coming to London with your family there are many options for you, some of which even have shared gardens. Europa House is a good option. Residents benefit from the use of some 3 acres of private gardens.
Many of the residences offer extra options including airport transfers, daily breakfast service, restaurant recommendations and theatre bookings. At others there are meeting room facilities.
When you are travelling with children, serviced apartments are a cost efficient short stay option. They will probably cost you less than two equivalent hotel rooms and you will save money but not having to dine constantly in restaurants.
