Arlington Street in Piccadilly, London's West End, is just minutes away from The Wolseley Hotel and Le Caprice restaurant, making this one of London's more glamorous walkways. It's also a picturesque part of the city, with the foliage of Green Park and grand Victorian buildings lining it on both sides, thus making it the perfect place to stay during your trip to London. Arlington House offers a range of ultra-modern, stylish, serviced apartments, where you can feel at home in the city and enjoy more privacy and flexibility than a hotel would offer.
Each of Arlington House's discrete pied a terres are decorated to a very high standard, with clean lines, sleek furnishings and a neutral colour scheme, to engender a calm atmosphere. Apartments are available from Studio to Three-Bedroom sizes and each comes with a thoughtful array of amenities and state of the art technology, including Miele appliances and all the fittings you will need for your personal kitchen, touch-panel lighting, bathrobes, air conditioning, a large LCD TV, a stereo system, complimentary toiletries, Wi-Fi internet access and the options of extra beds if needed. Choosing a serviced apartment may mean that staff keep a respectful distance, but they are more than happy to provide a high level of service when needed, and the apartments also offer a 24-hour porter, secure underground parking and a 24-hour contact for any queries or problems.
The apartments' central West End location means that you can reach most of the city's sights and attractions by foot. Buckingham Palace, residence of the Queen, is just a 6-minute walk away, where you can watch the Changing of the Guard ceremony, and the iconic sights of Westminster are within a ten-minute walk from the apartments, including Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament. Mayfair is home to some of London's most exclusive shops, so you can prime your credit card and browse elegant boutiques such as Fortnum & Mason, Savile Row tailors and Laduree for exquisite macarons and cakes. Trafalgar Square is just a 10-minute walk away, where you will find The National Gallery, Nelson's Column and the National Portrait Gallery; Hyde Park is also close by, where you will find The Serpentine Gallery; and the vibrant nightlife of Soho and Leicester Square are also easily reached. Theatre buffs will be thrilled to find the venues at Piccadilly and Covent Garden within walking distance and kids will enjoy The Trocadero and Ripley's Believe It or Not museum.
If you need to stock up on groceries, Tesco and Sainsbury's supermarkets are both just a 5-minute walk away, although Mayfair is renowned for its eateries, from gastropubs such as The Only Running Footman, to Michelin starred restaurants, to stylish places to be seen, such as Napket cafe and Aura, you will find something to suit everyone's tastes.
The hotel is very well located for transport, just two minutes walk from Green Park tube station, which services the Jubilee, Victoria and Piccadilly lines. From here you have direct links to Victoria Station (where the Gatwick Express Train terminates); King's Cross St Pancras Station (where the Eurostar terminates); and Heathrow Airport, which can be reached via the Piccadilly line. If you are driving to the hotel, it is situated just off the main A4 road, which can be accessed via the M4 and M25; however, guests should note that the hotel is in the congestion charge zone.
If you require a stylish base in a safe, upmarket area, these apartments will be the perfect choice, especially if you are travelling with your family in tow. All apartments are well appointed and offer generous space for a London conversion, although if you can stretch your budget to a larger apartment, it is worthwhile. Some units also have terraces and balconies, which are preferable for their fantastic views of the city.
