About the City of London area

St Katherine Dock, City of London

At weekends and holiday periods, the prices becomes attractive in the City of London, as the business market dries up.

The area on the other side of the River Thames in the London Bridge area was not so long ago just derelict warehouses. Like many other cities, the commercial docks areas have been rejuvenated in a very atmospheric and attractive way.

There are several apartment options close to the border between the commercial district and the West End entertainment district in Holborn and Farringdon. Here you can have the best of both worlds if you are on business with easy access to the commercial area and within walking distance of Covent Garden and the Leicester Square - the heart of the theatre and entertainment in London.

This is a more residential area and a traditional district for letting apartments. The apartments in the City of London tend to be quite new and purpose built, in Kensington they are mostly more mature buildings.

Apartments in Kensington tend to have much lower rates for the same grade of apartment than in the centre and the area is much more residential in nature.

Nearly all apartments and studios featured on this page you can reserve for just one night. Some apartments do have a 2 or 3 day minimum booking at peak periods.
