One of the main benefits of using serviced apartments is being able to take full advantage of the kitchen facilities provided. What you may not know is that the growing trend of apart-hotels means you don’t have to miss out on the dining experiences you’d normally associate with staying at a hotel.
While many of our London serviced apartments are close by to acclaimed restaurants, there are a number that have excellent in-house offerings. We’ve put together a few of our favourites to show you the variety of dining options available.
River Court Apartments – Chino Latino restaurant (Picture above)
Located in Vauxhall, these one and two bedroom apartments offer business travellers a comfortable home away from home.
River Court Apartments are in an ideal location for public transport with Vauxhall Station just a ten minute walk from the doorstep.
Apart-hotels offer the space and warmth you’d expect from an apartment with the added bonus of hotel-style facilities and River Court Apartments is no exception. Amenities include a daily maid service along with an onsite café, bar and restaurant.
This particular property is also home to the award-winning Chino Latino restaurant. Chino Latino specialises in Pan-Asian cuisine; its menu focuses on the flavours of China, South East Asia and modern Japan. Their menu offers guests a wide variety of dishes including wagyu beef with chorizo polenta, stuffed red chilli and soft shell crab tempura and a host of sushi variations. Chino Latino’s ‘served to share’ menu is complimented by a carefully crafted selection of cocktails that harness the freshest of ingredients.

Brick Street Apartments – NOBU Restaurant
Brick Street Apartments are a great alternative to a hotel room for those visiting London on business. Situated just around the corner from Hyde Park and ten minutes from Green Park station, these apartments are in a superb location with easy access to the rest of central London and direct connections to the West End.
Guests also have direct access to the Metropolitan hotel, which is home to the Michelin-starred NOBU restaurant. NOBU’s reputation has been built on a style of cooking that draws heavily on traditional Japanese techniques but influenced by South American cuisine.
It’ll take more than a few visits to work your way through the exhaustive menu but opting for a bento box gives you a snapshot of some of the establishment’s best dishes.
The restaurant also has a separate sushi bar that is perfect for informal lunches and private dining as well as a delivery service so you don’t even need to leave your apartment.
