Wishing You A Merry Christmas From All at Smart City

The last of our guests have checked into our London serviced apartments for the festive season, our stockings are firmly fastened to the fireplace, and there’s a fresh plate of mince pies and brandy set aside for good old Santa Claus himself.

Top Five Places to Enjoy Christmas Lunch When Staying in Covent Garden

Christmas LunchWhether it’s a relaxing break away from another frantic family Christmas, or simply a way to ensure you’re first in line at the Boxing Day sales the following morning, there’s few better ways to enjoy the holiday this year than in the cosy, traditional surroundings of our Hanover Street serviced apartments in Covent Garden.

Available for bookings 365 days per year, each modern, one and two bedroom apartment comes with plush, comfortable furniture to relax on, digital TV to enjoy all those Christmas classics, and even a fully fitted kitchen where you can rustle up your own Christmas dinner.

That’s why we got the team here at Smart City together and asked them for their recommendations on the best places to enjoy Christmas lunch when staying in Covent Garden …Read More

Indeed, whilst it may still seem like a good way off as you read this today, it’s worth pointing out that Christmas will be here much sooner than most of us think. Most of us, that is, besides those well-prepared guests who’ve already been in touch with Smart City to book their luxury serviced apartment for a Christmas 2015 break in London.
