To help answer this question, you may want to read our article ‘Looking for accommodation in Canary Wharf? – know your options'

However, we summarise the key benefits here!  Hotels are perfect if you are staying in Canary Wharf for 3 nights or less.  No doubt, hotels are simple to find and to check in to, you don’t need to buy any food, everything is at your immediate disposal and you are more than likely just sleeping there if you are on a short trip. 

If you are staying in Canary Wharf for one to three nights on leisure, you will be out sightseeing most of the time, if you are on business, you will be at work all the time, so you really just need a bed and convenience of hotel services at your fingertips.

Beyond 3 nights, and certainly, for seven or more nights, you will be spending much more time in your Canary Wharf accommodation, and therefore space, privacy and independence become much more important to the accommodation solution that you find. 

If you are working, you will want to rest at the weekend and can do so in comfort with the space that a one or two bedroom serviced apartment affords.  The longer you are staying for, the more compelling the reasons become to stay in a serviced apartment rather than a hotel in Canary Wharf, and this is why so many people are now choosing this option.

Other key benefits include the fact that you can cook for yourself, and therefore maintain a healthier diet and spend less eating out. 

You know you are not going to be disturbed by housekeeping every day, our cleaners come in once a week, during the week, and you are left to your own devices at weekends. 

Our WiFi is included in the price that you pay, so there are no excessive charges just to get online. 

Canary Wharf serviced apartments more often than not, also offer much greater value for money than a hotel of an equivalent standard.  A hotel can get very expensive very quickly.  Serviced apartments will not cost you as much for a similar level of accommodation, over an extended period of time.
