Why Battersea short lets are a powerful alternative to hotels

Hotels are convenient places to stay for a week or so, but after a while you may grow tired of the overpriced mini bar, the set meal times, domestic staff and the sound of late-night revellers stumbling past your door at 1.00am in the morning.

If you need to stay in London for a few weeks or months and are willing to consider short lets Battersea is a fantastic option. Unlike the formality of a hotel, you’ll enjoy the complete home-from-home experience, staying in a beautifully presented house or apartment with everything you need for your comfort and convenience including linen, towels, cutlery and a Wifi connection. Just unpack a suitcase of clothes and make yourself at home.

Businesses in particular understand that temporary rented accommodation is a better option for their employees. Not only is it more relaxing and convenient for staff to stay in one of our thoughtfully-equipped short let properties, it can also work out cheaper than a hotel.

Why Battersea?

So why is Battersea short let property such a brilliant choice when you are staying in London? This area is not only just across the river from Chelsea’s exclusive shops, pubs and restaurants, it is also home to one of London’s most exciting developments.  Ambitious plans for the Nine Elms district are set to turn Battersea into a ‘mini-Manhattan’, with exclusive homes, offices, shops and public spaces plus a new tube connection to the Northern Line. However the commute into central London from Battersea is already blissfully short, with trains taking just six minutes to Victoria Station.

Battersea has a vibrant history as one of the capital’s great industrial powerhouses and that heritage is still visible today with its iconic power station and in streets of attractive, brick-built Victorian houses – many now converted into stylish apartments – that were originally built for the area’s factory workers. A number of Battersea’s wharfside buildings have been demolished to make way for stunning modern apartment blocks such as the award-winning Battersea Reach.  If you love watching the river flow by you’ll enjoy staying in a well-appointed Battersea short let with stunning views along the Thames.
