One Fine Stay: {lovely london}

Ok, so the ‘summer’ in Great Britain was probably the rainiest ever. But what with everything going on- the Jubilee, the Olympics, the Paralympics and tons of other great events - who really cared anyway? It was a brilliant summer, regardless of the weather. And now that the hordes of spectators have left town there is a little more breathing space to enjoy the sights and sounds of the city again. And, what with autumn in full force, there is nothing better than taking a stroll through one of the many parks the city has to offer. Or perhaps go for a shopping spree along Oxford Street, do a little sightseeing, or maybe even see a concert. For visitors to the city, things can also become a bit overwhelming, especially when it comes to one of the most important choices; selecting the right hotel.

To mix it up even more you’ve got onefinestay now, London’s first ‘unhotel’. The idea behind the idea is that you stay in somebody else’s place while they are out of town, while still be able to enjoy the perks of a five star hotel. Apart from the fluffy towels and fresh linens, you are also given an iPhone to use during your stay. Want to feel like a real Londoner? Then the iPhone is filled up with recommendations from the home owners about things to do in the area, from- the cosy coffee shops and the tiny vintage store around the corner, to the fancy Italian restaurant with the best pasta in town. As such, onefinestay offers a boutique alternative to the usual 
hum-drum of a hotel.

The company is based in London, but has a newly opened office in New York as well. The apartments vary widely, from quirky one-bedroom flats to large mansions with impressive chandeliers. However, there is one thing they all have in common: when you stay there, you get the chance to live like a real local...
