London’s Borough City of Westminster

apartment westminster boroughLondon’s City of Westminster borough is well known as the heart of UK’s Parliament and the residence of both the Prime Minister and the Queen. It is also the location of historic sites like the Abbey and Big Ben. In tourist season (which is pretty much all year round) most of London’s holiday makers are drawn to Westminster.

starGet the Best Deals

Clearly it’s a crowded place to be in, but that hasn’t stopped the 236,000 residents of the borough from setting up home close to the seat of the city’s power. Most of the residences here are flats, because of the space crunch. For the same reason, real estate prices are also among the highest in London.

But visitors on a short term or long term holiday or those coming into the city for a one night halt or an extended weekend usually prefer to put up here at apartment rentals, and there are plenty of good reasons why.

Why Stay At Westminster?

If Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and the road leading to 10 Downing Street are not attractions enough for visitors, then famous landmarks like Nelson’s Column and Trafalgar Square are. Westminster was the heart of espionage during WWII and history buffs will always be fascinated by the underground bunkers of the Churchill War Rooms.

The world’s oldest menagerie at the London Zoo or the superlative art collection at the National Gallery draws crowds throughout the year. The Famous Piccadilly Circus makes an excellent subject for Instagrams at all times of the day and shoppers can join the like-minded throng at Oxford Street’s world famous high street and designer fashion stores.

In the night, the clubs, bars and restaurants of Soho and Leicester Square come alive. The calmer pubs and cafes of Covent Garden are equally popular haunts of weekend nightlife-seekers. There are also plenty of vast green spaces in the borough, most famously at Hyde Park.

A rented apartment in this area will place the visitor right at the heart of London’s vibrant social, cultural and political scene. The area is also very popular for runners looking for accommodation during London’s marathon weekend.

Holiday flats : Where to Stay ?

holiday flatWhile rent in most areas of in this part of London is exorbitantly high, there are some areas that are close to the scene and still have some cheap rentals available. The Bayswater area in particular is highly cosmopolitan, bordering the north of Hyde Park.

Apartments in Bayswater are a mix of flats and boarding houses, with some Victorian houses and stucco balconies. There are studio apartments available for rent, which are ideal for short term stay. Some owners also allow a one night stay for transiting visitors that want a comfortable, homely halt overnight.

Most apartments are comfortable and well-appointed, with additional amenities including WiFi, terraces and gardens, private lifts, river views etc. Interested travelers can find accommodation that sleep anywhere between 2 and 9 people.

Some cheap accommodation is also available in the Trafalgar Square, Soho, Pimlico, Knightsbridge and Marylebone areas, though these are fewer in number as compared to Bayswater.

A mix of classic and contemporary apartments can be found in the greater Westminster area. Most self catering rentals offers free Wi-Fi, modern, open-plan kitchens, a living area with large comfortable sofas and free laundry facilities. Bathrooms are clean and bright, and come with free toiletries and a hairdryer. Some properties include an indoor swimming pool, gym or fitness center, sauna, and steam room.
