Travelling for a short break to a city can often be as expensive as a weeks holiday in a 5 star hotel but staying in a serviced apartment, especially if travelling as a family with children, can often be a cost effective way. Being able to cook and eat in your accommodation can bring the cost of your trip down enormously and it’s also a great way to really get the feel of a city and live like a local for a few days.
A company we have used before, who have some of the most amazing accommodation on their books, is OneFineStay. They have a wide range of styles and budgets send you regular updates of new properties they have acquired if you register with them.
This property in Shoreditch London, which was formerly a factory building, can be rented for a minimum of 3 nights and is in a great part of the city.
I love the interior which is a homely mix of flea market finds, lots of textures and the warm patina of the exposed brick. I’d never want to leave.
