Best Places to Stay in London

Like bustling markets and historical intrigue? You’ll love Borough & Southwark

Famous for being right on the Thames and playing host to London’s biggest and best food market, Borough and the rest of Southwark are full of things to see, learn, eat and do. Along the river you’ll find Shakespeare’s Globe, the Golden Hinde (the first English ship to cross the globe), as well as tiny family-run restaurants, quirky pop-up craft shops and smart independent art galleries.

Ahh, London. It’s a sprawling metropolis, right? Well, not quite. As all Londoners know, our capital is actually more of a collection of little neighbourhoods, each with its own unique character and vibe.

That’s why, at Native, we pride ourselves on knowing all our areas inside out, giving you the chance to live like a local, no matter which of our apartments you choose.

With 17 properties across London, there’s something for everyone. So, here’s our best places to stay with Native, to help you choose your neighbourhood.

Where are you staying?

Our hotel near Southbank.

Like serene green and a royal welcome? You’ll love Hyde Park

The largest of London’s Royal Parks, it connects some of the city’s best loved areas. There’s Bayswater to the north, Mayfair to the east and Knightsbridge to the south, to name but a few. The park itself is a heavenly expanse of history within calm green space, with a lake you can swim in, sculptures, water features and a gallery. There’s also the Serpentine Pavilion – a stunning temporary structure designed by a different, carefully selected, artist each year. All just a ten minute walk from Oxford Street.

Where are you staying?
Our aparthotel near Hyde Park is the perfect pied-à-terre to unwind after a day exploring the area.
We also have beautiful serviced apartments in Mayfair, located in converted Victorian mews near to Marble Arch and Bond Street.

Like tradition and innovation? You’ll love the City of London

The City is delightfully contradictory. It’s where old meets new, formal meets quirky and quintessential Britishness meets the global economy. Gone are the bowler hats and bumbershoots, but that big business energy still pervades the whole district, bringing a celebratory vibe to the restaurants, bars, pubs and clubs where the suited and booted go to toast the end of the workday.

Where are you staying?
We have a few aparthotels and serviced apartments ideally located for you to explore The City.
Our hotel near bank station, Native Bank, is just a stone’s throw away from London’s banking district.
Our hotel near Cannon Street is also nearby, located in a charming townhouse near the City’s Square Mile.
Halfway between the banking district and the East End, Native’s high spec serviced apartments near Tower Hill offer stunning views of the Gherkin and The City.
Also nestled in the heart of the City is Native Fenchurch Street, a former tea warehouse home to stunning short stay apartments.

Like leafy streets and waterside walks? You’ll love Fulham

Dotted with pretty parks, antique shops, cafés and crafts, Fulham has a creative countryside vibe even in the heart of London’s Zone 2. The beautiful Fulham Palace is well worth a visit, as are any of the brilliant gastro pubs, while culture vultures will flock to the London Theatre Workshop and the Grapefruit Gallery.

Where are you staying?
Perfectly located near parklands and riverside pubs, Native’s serviced apartments in Fulham is home to serene apartments that are ideal to relax after a day exploring the city.
