Getting to Oxford Street is easy, with Marble Arch, Bond Street and Oxford Circus stations all serving this lively hub. The bus service is very good in this area. Much of Oxford Street is pedestrianised and there are, of course, plenty of black cabs around.
Many shops and department stores are open Monday to Saturday from 9 am to 9pm and Sunday from 11.30 am to 6pm. Oxford Street can be quite busy at times so to avoid the crowds it is probably best to avoid the street during the week between 5 and 6.30 pm and on Saturday afternoons. The queues to pay in shops and to access the underground are normally more dense at that time.
Leading from Oxford Street you can also enjoy the luxury shops of Regent Street towards Piccadilly Circus and take a stroll through Carnaby Street on the way and experience a taste of London's cool and trendy 60's heritage.
Our Mayfair serviced apartments are the ideal home from home offering you the freedom and independence of your own accommodation, with kitchen and WiFi, alongside the services of a good hotel including regular cleaning (including linen and towel change) which is standard in all our properties.
