How long are you staying?

If you’re just travelling to London for a short weekend getaway the location of the serviced apartment may be more important to you than the amenities. Will you actually use the dishwasher, washer dryer, and make proper use of the full size kitchen? Or is a basic kitchenette with fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster enough?

If you’re planning on eating out anyway the kitchenette will surely suffice. If you’re just visiting on the weekend and are travelling light with hand luggage only the size of the apartment may not matter that much to you. However, if you’re relocating to London with plenty of luggage storage space may be of essence. A fully equipped kitchen with built-in dishwasher and washer-dryer will certainly make your stay more convenient as well.
