Developed in the original docklands in the East End of London, Canary Wharf is the city’s financial centre with numerous restaurants and swanky bars to entertain the wealthy bankers working in the area. Between all the skyscrapers and office blocks, Canary Wharf has plenty of green spaces like Canada Square Park and on three sides, it is surrounded by the River Thames.
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 for-saking the principal benefits of a concierge service. 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. In Canary Wharf, they have 7 apart-hotels on their books (although only several had availability on our chosen dates). On those dates, prices started at around £130 per night. Numerous photos make it easy to visualise the properties, while feedback is 100% genuine as only guests who have already used laterooms.com are entitled to comment.
Providing properties for short and long-stays, citybaseapartments.com outperforms all other rental websites in Canary Wharf with a total of 33 serviced apartments on its books. With such a broad selection, you can opt for a serviced apartment the the centre or look for something outside of the hustle and bustle. Customer feedback is, on the whole, excellent with a caring and knowledgeable customer service to back up the fine selection of serviced hotels on their easy-to-use website.
At the time of writing, there was only one apart-hotel on the books of booking.com- the Marriott Executive Apartments London. The complex, built in an ultra-modern 5 star apartment block, fea-tures a gym, a steakhouse and Lobby Lounge Bar Area. Prices start at around £280 per night. The cheapest rates are non-refundable so you need to be 100% sure of your trip. Alternatively, you can expect to pay about 10% more for the privilege of a full refund. Despite our admiration for booking.com, we recommend comparing prices.
