The benefits of a short let, serviced apartment in London

If you are looking to visit London and want to spend an extended stay in a “home-away-from-home” environment without the hotel formality – but with all the comforts and facilities you enjoy at home – then a serviced apartment could be just what you are looking for.

Yes, a hotel is perfect for short-stay visits of up to seven days. Yes, your room is fully serviced daily, but as you don’t expect to dine in it or to use it socially during the day, it can be, in essence, just an expensive single bedroom. You have neither the facilities nor the space to enjoy a comfortable extended stay away from home.

On the other hand, a private serviced apartment in London is the ideal solution for those expecting to stay in in the city for longer than a week, allowing as it does, the perfect freedom to come and go as you please. There is no slamming of doors from inconsiderate arriving or departing fellow guests, no televisions blaring late at night and no staff hovering around when you don’t need them.

And you don’t have the formality of checking your room key in and out each time you leave the building, or face often inordinately high London-priced hotel bills.

You can spend an afternoon on the sofa in your fully-furnished lounge, writing up your business notes, make a meal in your fully-fitted kitchen at any time of day you choose, host a business meeting, or entertain members of the family.

All with the added bonus of a much more conducive atmosphere to conduct your business and live in while away from home.

More importantly, you have the space and facilities to make your stay very much home-from-home. You have the privacy and the freedom of choice, right in the heart of that part of the City of London where you need to be. You can stock your fridge with what you want, cook a meal when it suits you, or even stay in bed an extra couple of hours without having to hang the proverbial “Do not Disturb” notice on your door that so many hotel staff seem to ignore!

When you shut the door at night, obvious though it may seem, you are genuinely “shutting your door at night”!

And with its use intended as a real home when staying in London, there will always be a washer-dryer, and in many cases, a dishwasher. With broadband internet, telephone and freeview digital TV, as well as utility bills and Council tax included, means the benefits of renting a serviced apartment really do stack up.

Short stay serviced apartments are not just for the business traveller who wants their temporary accommodation to have space, privacy and freedom. Clarendon serviced apartments have the flexibility of 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms, available for short let periods of  1, 3, 6, 9 and 12+ months.

A big advantage with an apartment is that even a one-bedroom configuration will have three to four times the area and space of the average hotel room. And two-bedroomed apartments (and up) will not only enjoy at least one en-suite facility, but will see cost-savings increase with multiple occupancy, a key factor if several people from a firm’s project team, or the members of a relocating family are based there.

Increasingly, people from the professions – legal, financial, consultancy – are turning to the independence and cost-benefits of renting a serviced apartment as the most flexible extended stay available in London.

And with over 20 years’ experience, renting through Clarendon means you also have the convenience of dealing directly with the actual owner management team of the apartments and not a third party agent who has to check everything from actual availability to pricing with the owners.

Booking through Clarendon, means you have the peace of mind that you are booking a Clarendon serviced apartment…….direct.
