For those looking to explore London's most famous sights, you couldn't get more ideally placed than the Apple Apartments The Strand. It's within walking of Covent Garden, the West End, Somerset House, St Paul's Cathedral, the National Theatre and Royal Opera House, plus Temple Tube station is a 5-minute walk for connections further afield.
The apartments are housed in Marconi House, the site of the first BBC studio and transmitter in 1922. Next door is the luxurious ME London hotel, where the on-site Radio Rooftop Bar is worth a visit for the views alone.
Apartments range in size from one bed to three bedrooms, which can sleep up to six people. All have free Wi-Fi, waterproof TVs in the bathroom, fluffy bathrobes and fully equipped kitchens -- expect a microwave, oven, dishwasher, toaster, washer/dryer and crockery. There is a Nexus tablet that controls the temperature, lighting and sound system, and DVD players and iPod docks are provided as standard. Some apartments are pet friendly and the family apartments have a pull-out sofa in the living room.
For those who don't fancy cooking, you can order room service from ME London next door, or explore one of the many restaurants on your doorstep. Hawsmoor in Covent Garden's Seven Dials enclave is highly recommended for steak aficionados. There's a 24-hour concierge to help if you need recommendations.
