Serviced apartments are ideal for people looking for short or long-term stays. Equipped with a living room and a kitchen, they are spacious enough to allow guests to cook, eat and entertain without forsaking the principal benefits of a concierge service.

Having reinvented itself as hotspot of alternative art and offbeat culture, Bristol has become a vibrant city; full of music venues, theatres, cultural centres and the odd mural left by Bristol’s cheekiest son, Banksy. Buzzing with bars and restaurants, the city centre is a great area to look for short-term or long-term rentals, as is the affluent area of Clifton, situated in the West of the city. For sea-views and waterside restaurants, we recommend the dockside area known as Harbourside.

Having compared all the main booking websites for short-let apartments, these are our top choices.

Originating in Manchester, laterooms.com is a hotel reservation website specialising in -as the name suggests- last minute, discounted reservations. They have 10 serviced apartments in Bristol. One and two bedroom apartments kick off at £120 a night in the Saco Building, a classic Edwardian property in the Old Town. As is the case with booking.com, customer feedback is totally full-proof as only users of the website can provide feedback which, on the whole, tends to be very positive.

City Base Apartments

Book at Citybaseapartments.com

Providing properties for short and long-stays, citybaseapartments.com has 11 apart-hotels for rent in and around the centre of Bristol. Prices start at £85 per night in the city centre at the Cotham Lawn Apartments. Customer feedback is, on the whole, excellent with a caring and knowledgeable customer service to back up a fine selection of serviced hotels on their easy-to-use website.


Book at Booking.com

Booking.com has a small selection of Serviced Apartments in Bristol. After clicking on Apartments, look for the word ‘Aparthotel’ next to the establishment’s name. The cheapest rates are non-refundable so you need to be 100% sure of your trip. Alternatively, pay about 10% more for the privilege of a full refund. Despite our admiration for booking.com, we recommend comparing prices.
