So you are planning your hen or stag weekend in London, but don’t want to stay in a hotel then why not try a luxury London apartment.
We had the pleasure of staying at one of the Presidential Apartments in Kensington at the weekend and thought this would be a great alternative to a hotel for your weekend away with the girls or the boys.
Combine hotel luxury with the flexibility and convenience of a personal London pied-à-terre. Located in the heart of Kensington, every one of the 58 beautifully designed suites provides the luxury hen party with total comfort and relaxation and each is complete with a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, dining room and entertaining area.
Once the best-kept-secret for A-list celebrities, can now be the first choice for you seeking total privacy, serviced apartments always beat the traditional hotel room on price, convenience and, most importantly, size.
Three times winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award, Presidential Apartments are perfect for a long or short weekend away and provide guests with their very own city crash-pad from just £170 per night.
The apartments are housed in a classic Victorian red brick mansion block and, despite the thoroughly modern interiors, guests are able to enjoy the charms of its Nineteenth Century architecture for a unique experience of traditional London. The building is situated in a conservation area on one of the Capital’s iconic garden squares, which provides beautiful and peaceful views from many of the rooms.
Our apartment was luxuriously designed, with Siberian oak floors, bespoke walnut fittings and eclectic furniture. The ceiling was very high indeed and the bedroom had indulgent Egyptian cotton sheets and orthopaedic mattresses that guaranteed a perfect night’s sleep.
The bathroom had under floor heating and are stocked with the finest grooming products. The spacious lounge area was ideal for relaxation, each complemented by the very best entertainment systems, including plasma screens, wifi, satellite and DVD players. Our suite had a designer sofa bed for extra guests.
