Renting a serviced apartment in London can be a convenient way to enjoy some time in the capital.
THE APARTMENT – SACO The Cannon Aparthotel
We stayed at SACO The Cannon aparthotel in London , right in the heart of The City for a couple of nights. There’s a choice of studio or one-bedroom apartments, all decorated in a minimalistic, modern and stylish design.
Beds are large and comfortable with crisp white linen; there’s free wi-fi, wall mounted smart flatscreen tvs, Apple TV boxes, plus a Travel Buddy smartphone which is free to use during your stay.
Kitchens are well-equipped and bathrooms pristine and luxurious.
Downstairs there’s a 24 hour friendly reception service, and a lounge area with free tea and Nespresso machine coffee – plus plenty of magazines to browse.
You can make your own breakfast in your room, of course, but you might want to treat yourself to a visit to The Breakfast Club, Spitalfields, a 15-20 minute walk away. An institution that’s worth queuing up for, it serves every kind of breakfast imaginable – from pancakes and waffles to burgers and Benedicts, Full Montys to eggs any way you like. And portions don’t come small.
With Mansion House and Cannon Street tubes on the doorstep, you’re right in the heart of the City. St Paul’s is a short walk away. We were lucky enough to catch some filming going on in front of the iconic cathedral for the new Men in Black movie during our visit. We’ll be watching out for that when the film’s released!
As well as the cathedral, there’s The Bank of England and The Tower of London within walking distance. And there are plenty of shops and eateries nearby too.
You’re also close to Millennium Bridge – so just a short hop across the water to the South Bank, perfect for a riverside mooch or a visit to The Tate Modern. A fantastic Picasso exhibition was on show during our visit but there’s an ever-changing menu of events, and don’t miss the chance to get a drink or some food at the Level 9 restaurant which boasts spectacular views.
It’s easy to get into the West End too – Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus are just a few stops away on the tube. We caught one of the last showings of the National Theatre production’s Consent at The Harold Pinter Theatre.
