I love to be in the heart of the action when I stay in London; to live and breathe London and to really feel like a Londoner. Much as I love central London hotels, there’s something about staying in a luxurious serviced apartment that seems to offer a more exclusive and altogether more ‘London’ experience. London Lifestyle Apartments are a great place to start as all their apartments are excellently situated and cater for the discerning traveller. The Cadogan Elegance is a favourite of mine due to its wonderful central location in Knightsbridge.
The apartment is located in Knightsbridge on exclusive and fashionable Cadogan Square, 5 minutes’ walk from Harrods store in Knightsbridge and 8 minutes’ walk from Sloane Square and King’s Road, Chelsea. The immediate area of your apartment has numerous small shops, restaurants and coffee shops. Slip down the side streets and you will find the village atmosphere of Knightsbridge and adjoining Belgravia still alive and well. Knightsbridge is one of the most exclusive residential areas of central London and it’s really not hard to see why; once just a village outside London, it still retains some of the atmosphere from those earlier days with some lovely, very individual shops and restaurants. It is also a very central spot for getting around the rest of this great city. Superb high-end shopping from some of the world’s top brands can be found on Sloane Street which is just moments away from your apartment – home to Louis Viton, Prada, Gucci, Versace, Tiffany and many more top names.

Food & Drink
If you decide to go out to eat, you will find yourself spoilt for choice from the wide range of restaurants very close by; Pont Street, leading up towards Brompton Road, Knightsbridge has a great selection of restaurants, with different cuisines well represented. A little further, Lowndes Street and William Street have a number of very good restaurants offering various kinds of cuisine and more options still lie in both Knightsbridge itself and around King’s Road, Chelsea. There are several supermarkets within a few minutes’ walk including a large Waitrose in Motcomb Street and an M&S Food store at the top end of Pont Street on Brompton Road.
