SACO Serviced Apartments: Your Home Away From Home!

When planning a family trip to London the first thing you might look at is booking a hotel, but this would be a huge mistake. With so many accommodation options in London it can be overwhelming, but there is one company that has your back and can make your London vacation amazing, welcome home to your SACO apartment!

When you really sit down and think about it, hotels just weren’t modeled around accommodating a family for longer than a couple of days. Unless you’re springing for the penthouse suite, most likely your room will be small and start to feel even smaller as the vacation goes on. What you really need is something that feels more like home, but away from home. You need a place that you can still cook meals if you desire and wash clothes if needed. It would be great if these things would be put on pause while on vacation, but alas no. Kids still need clothes washed, (probably even more while on vacation), the whole family needs to eat (you know it’s cheaper to make meals than eat out), and everyone loves more space (even if the purpose of your trip is “quality family time”).

For these reasons and so much more is why you will love staying at SACO in London. We stayed at the beautiful SACO Fitzrovia apartments. Now they have some beautiful properties, but I absolutely loved the Fitzrovia apartments. The apartments are well appointed, clean, sleek and everything in them feels new. That’s not even the best part of this property though, this is the best part… THE VIEW!

The views from these apartments are spectacular! From the living room we could view downtown and from the bedrooms we could see the London Eye, Big Ben and more! At night it was even more amazing!

There are plenty of sites that can easily be reached from the apartment as well. SACO has deliberately placed their properties within walking distance or short train distance to major attractions. We easily walked to the British Museum and took a short train to Big Ben and more.

I personally love living like a local. Walking around your neighborhood feeling like you are a part of it, it’s so much fun! I love buying fresh produce from the local markets and then taking it back to my apartment to make a home cooked meal. I don’t have to debate with my husband and kids for 30 minutes on which restaurant to eat at, instead we can enjoy a wonderful meal while staring out at the city skyline. A restaurant with a view like this would be pricey for a family of four, but not when it’s in our own apartment.

All of the SACO apartments are amazing, but I have to say I really love the Fitzrovia property and neighborhood. SACO Fitzrovia offers 34 one and two bedroom stylish apartments that have recently been refurbished to the highest of standards. Each has a spacious and contemporary design and has been carefully configured so you have everything you need to feel right at home.

Set on bustling Tottenham Street in the midst of dynamic and vibrant Fitzrovia, SACO Fitzrovia is in an ideal location whether you are traveling for business or leisure. On your doorstep you’ll find The West End, the British Museum, Regents Park and Madame Tussauds – to name but a few top London attractions.
Conveniently located just minutes from Tottenham Court tube station you’ll have immediate access to the city and beyond, including Heathrow via Piccadilly and Gatwick via the Gatwick Express from London Victoria.

So if you are headed to London skip looking into hotels and instead stay with SACO, by far the best option for family travel in London! Head over here to check out all the SACO properties in London and other UK destinations.

A big thank you to SACO for hosting our family in order to facilitate this review, all opinions are my own.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
