Advantages of staying in a serviced apartment

There are many benefits to making Hyde Park Residence your home in London. Our Mayfair location is ideal for those looking for an easy launch pad to explore the city’s many districts from. Our serviced apartments provide more space compared to most hotel suites, allowing you to live a life of comfort, whether alone or with friends and family. We have designed our living areas, bedrooms, and fully equipped kitchens to give you all the amenities of home.

One of the things we most enjoy about serviced apartments is the higher level of privacy we offer compared to hotels. You won’t have to worry about noisy neighbours or unexpected interruptions from housekeeping. From the moment you turn your key in the lock, your apartment is your sanctuary.

Our serviced apartments are designed around how you want to live. Unlike hotels that have strict check-in and check-out times, Hyde Park Residence provides a bespoke approach for each of our guests. You can check-in at your convenience and then come and go as you please. This flexibility gives you the freedom to plan your time as you want.
