Living in London is all-consuming. That’s part of its appeal – it’s exciting, vibrant, there’s always something to do and people to see.
For tourists and professionals visiting the Capital, Supercity Aparthotels offer a perfect home away from home. Their luxury serviced apartments are designed for (relatively, this is still London) affordable stays in central London, in modern settings and with all the makings of a home.
I was invited to stay at Templeton Place, a beautiful Victorian Townhouse and Supercity’s first aparthotel with 30 suites.
As I live in east London, I was keen to explore the other side of the city. And, now I’ve got a taste of west London, move me out of my mouldy shared house and into one of these suites ASAP, please!
Templeton Place is a three-minute walk from Earl’s Court Station, with loads of shops, bars and restaurants moments away. We stayed in a one bedroom suite, which had fun artwork and cosy furnishings, as well as the essential amenities.
The bedroom had a huge king-sized bed, a large wardrobe, iron, a radio/speaker dock and a fancy smartphone travel guide for getting to know the area.
When we arrived, there was a welcome hamper of posh snacks, cereal and jam for breakfast, as well as milk and water in the fridge.
The kitchen had everything you needed for a stay – glasses, crockery and cutlery, as well as a washing machine (and detergent), a cooker and an oven.
Our lounge, with comfy sofa and TV, overlooked the private garden where guests can sit and enjoy some time outside. There was a bath for relaxing in the bathroom, with soft fluffy towels and toiletries.
For those on a business trip to London, there is a desk to work at, a Nespresso coffee machine and a strong WiFI connection. And just down the corridor, there was a bookcase, with books, champagne flutes and ice buckets to borrow during your stay.
I think the price is reasonable for nice accommodation in central London, with rates starting at £144 a room (the one bedroom suite begins at £168 per night).
You can save money on being able to buy your own food/drinks rather than going out or room service. Especially for a longer stay, I prefer a serviced apartment to staying in a hotel. You have the freedom to cook your own food, keep drinks in the fridge, wash your clothes and a bit more space to relax.
We had an amazing home away from home. It was great to have a staycation where I was able to get out and enjoy the busy city, but then come back to a quiet residential street and sleep so well.
Supercity plans to open another location in Chancery Lane, as well as in Manchester and Brighton and I would definitely recommend a visit to one of their aparthotels.
