Search for cheapest prices: Mayfair Court Apartments
There are certain areas of London where only the most affluent citizens can afford a stylish apartment due to prohibitively expensive rents and the exclusivity of the neighbourhood. Mayfair is one such area, a well-heeled district filled with divine shops, cafes and bars and lined with elegant Victorian buildings. It's so exclusive the Queen of England lives just down the road and Bond Street, which has the highest concentration of designer shops in the city, commands some of the highest retail rents in the world. However, visitors to London can experience what it is like to live in the most desirable part of the city, if only for a short while, by staying in Mayfair Court Apartments, an Apart-hotel complex just minutes from Bond Street and situated opposite Selfridges Department Store.
Mayfair Court offers 15 Standard and Executive class, one-bedroom boutique apartments, decorated in a chic, minimalist, contemporary style and outfitted with a range of imaginative amenities including iPod docking stations, a complimentary wireless broadband connection, a secure entry system, a Plasma-screen TV, DVD player, fully fitted kitchen unit and a weekly maid service. If you need to purchase groceries, Tesco and Sainsbury's supermarkets are both just a five minute walk away, and if you wish to eat out, you will be spoilt for choice as Oxford Street and its surrounds are packed with tempting restaurants and cafes. From Leon, for tasty lunches and snacks, to Thai Square for exotic fare, to elegant No. 5 Cavendish Square, there is something to suit all tastes and budgets.
The apartments are in a truly excellent location, with Oxford Street on your doorstep, a shopaholic's dream come true, with over 300 shops to choose from alongside the exclusive shops of Bond and Regent Streets nearby. London's largest green space, Hyde Park, is just five minutes walk from the apartments, where you can enjoy outdoor activities such as boating and horse riding, or you can visit The Serpentine modern art gallery and Kensington Palace, just a 15-minute stroll through the park. Marble Arch monument is a few minutes walk away, and past the luxury car dealerships and hotels lining Park Lane, you will find Buckingham Palace, the Queen's stately London residence, which is open for tours for two months of the year. The hotel is also well placed to visit the picturesque Chelsea Knightsbridge and South Kensington districts of London; all within 15 minutes walk though Hyde Park. Chelsea is home to the King's Road shops and The Saatchi Gallery; Knightsbridge is home to the world-famous Harrods Department Store; and South Kensington is home to many of London's most popular attractions, including the Victoria & Albert, Science and Natural History museums; The Royal Albert Hall and the Prince Albert memorial. The apartments are also close to the West London College campus, making them a good choice for prospective students or visiting families.
The apartments also enjoy convenient transport links, with Bond Street tube station just a five-minute walk away. This station serves the Jubilee Line, for direct travel to Westminster's iconic sights and Waterloo Station for travel to other areas of the UK and the South Bank exhibition centres. The station also services the Central line for travel to further afield areas of the city. From Oxford Street it is easy to catch a bus to Victoria Station for a connection to Gatwick airport, using the Express Train.
Mayfair Court Apartments are a good accommodation option if you want to stay somewhere central to all London sights, however, the splendid location does mean that the apartments can be rather noisy at night, so choosing an apartment on a higher floor does aid this problem somewhat. Previous guests have also found the apartments a little too petite, however, this is a typical trait of London's historic buildings, so you may be willing to excuse this annoyance for the added charm of a Victorian facade.
