Five Reasons Why London Self-Catering Apartments offer Better Value for Families than Hotels
So, you’ve done all the research, you’ve planned your itinerary, and you’re almost ready to treat the kids to that once-in-lifetime family holiday in London.
Now all that’s left to do is to find somewhere to stay. Sure, you’ve looked at top London hotel accommodation, but the price alone is enough to make you seriously reconsider the whole trip.
Thankfully, there is a better option.
Self-catering apartments in Central London actually provide much better value for money on your family holiday than even the city’s most well-known budget hotel chains ever could.
Here’s just five reasons why:
Stay together in one spacious apartment
Whether your next London city break is just for you, your partner, and the children, or whether you’re bringing along the whole extended family, it goes without saying that a single, one-bed hotel room just isn’t going to cut it.
As such, you’re faced with either booking multiple rooms -and thus significantly increasing the cost of your stay- or cramming everyone into one family hotel room which isn’t exactly generous when it comes to space.
With a luxury self-catering apartment in the city, you and your loved ones can all stay together under one roof, with separate bedrooms and spacious living areas which offer more than enough room to roam around in.
Set your own schedule…
When you book a hotel in the capital, you often pay for extra services, including morning breakfast and an evening meal. Though on the surface this does seem convenient, the limited window of time that your hotel offers to actually enjoy those meals doesn’t always fit well into your busy vacation schedule.
As such, you ultimately end up paying for something you don’t use. With fully fitted kitchens, state-of-the-art equipment and full range of crockery and utensils provided by your London self-catering apartment, you choose exactly when to eat.
…And your own menu
Not only do you get to choose when you eat, but also what. Let’s face it, hotel menus can be pretty expensive, and that’s before we even mention the cost of eating at a Central London restaurant.
With local supermarkets close to your luxury holiday accommodation, not to mention locations within walking distance to local food markets, keeping the family well-fed whilst visiting the capital doesn’t have to cost a fortune.
Cut the cost of London travel
Nor does travelling from A – B. At Smart City, each of our self-catering apartments are conveniently located close to both local tube stations and leading tourist attractions. In many cases, you can avoid the cost of travel altogether, with some of the city’s most popular landmarks just a few minutes’ walk away, whilst others are no more than a tube-stop away.
