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 enjoythe 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
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…
