When you’re posted on a business project of 3 months or more and looking for a short term rental in London: finding accommodation in a new city can be overwhelming and painfully hit or miss. If you’re working hard and hoping to enjoy your downtime in a new city, getting the wrong place to live can be a nightmare.
Look no further! Combining luxury, space and freedom, Dolphin Square apartments can provide the ideal London home-away-from-home.
Why short let accommodation is perfect for business travellers
The wonderful thing about serviced apartments is that they sit between a hotel room and a private short term apartment rental, combining the best aspects of both. You get the freedom and independence of having your own flat: space, the privacy, room to entertain and a table to eat at that isn’t your bed! You also get the luxury and excellence of a good quality hotel - with services such as housekeeping, bedding and towels being changed every three days, onsite maintenance staff, reception and 24-hour security. There are also wonderful onsite guest amenities - offering rest, relaxation, fitness and convenience.
Serviced apartments offer an unbeatable value to quality ratio. The cost of serviced apartments drops the longer you stay there (as they get VAT breaks) - so you can end up saving up to a third of what you would spend on an equivalent hotel room, while enjoying a third more space! All this means you get much more bang for your buck.
Serviced apartments also have flexible terms - so if you need to extend your stay for unforeseen circumstances this process is simple, and you won’t have to uproot and relocate once your original booking comes to an end.
Why Dolphin Square is the perfect short let accommodation solution
Dolphin Square has an excellent choice of rooms available, so whatever your needs, you can find something suitable.
The studio apartments at Dolphin Square are beautiful and ideal accommodation for one person or if you’re bringing your partner with you. These provide a cosy space but you still have enough room to work, chill, eat and sleep in separate areas.
Also great for one person or a couple are our one-bedroom apartments, but these come with just that little bit more room. These are the most popular rentals at Dolphin Square.
If you’re planning to live in London with a colleague, bringing down costs and increasing team productivity, you could consider getting a two-bedroom apartment. Sharing with a teammate while working on a project can be a brilliant way to maximise efficiency, with a shared working space in the living area, a homely feeling that you don’t get in a hotel - but the privacy of being able to close your bedroom door.
You get to enjoy all the home comforts - with spacious, thoughtfully decorated rooms and a pantry style or full kitchen (depending on what size apartment you choose). So you have the freedom and flexibility of cooking for yourself on your own schedule, while keeping costs down.
The incredible location means you can also easily access a plethora of brilliant takeaways and deliveries from local restaurants across the city, for when you don’t have the energy to rustle something up, or for when you deserve a treat.
