City of London apartment description

Concerted effort

To those who live their life in poetry, painting and song, the Barbican is home from home. But when the curtain falls and the conductor sweeps a bow, there’s no need to fetch up your coat. For on the top floor is Frobisher Crescent, a home to draw the loudest ovation of all. Here are tapestries and trinkets, fossils and orchids, African sculpture and Caribbean fish. From the sitting room you’ll see the Shard, from the bedroom the Gherkin. And, when the sun sets over the City, the balcony is your gallery ticket.

Educated tastes

Your pioneering hosts were the first to occupy the highest floor, previously used for offices. They love fish, 1970s furniture and taking weekend walks through the whisper-quiet City.

Dramatic licence

If your preferences run towards the sonnet and the string quartet, seek no further. Every inch of this top-floor home is highly cultivated, from the lofty vaulted ceilings to the vintage brass shoe brushes. Step inside and sink into a sofa with a Penguin Classic, or wander in awe from African bust to Asian print to beautiful tapestry. And while left-brain thinkers inspect the orchids and fossils, those poetically inclined will be lost for words. The view from the balcony is rather incredible – and when you’re done gazing, Europe’s largest multi-arts centre waits just downstairs.

Location

You have to look very carefully for the few remains of the walls that once girded London from the outlying fields and villages. Today, despite making up just one square mile of London proper, it holds its own city status and jurisdiction (spot the red-and-white checked badge on police uniforms).

Amongst the glass-clad offices you’ll find some of the city’s most historic landmarks: St Paul’s, Monument and the Royal Exchange. During rush hour the streets throng with suits, and lunch venues thrive off hungry white-collar workers. But in the evening, and at weekends, the City (as it’s known) becomes eerily deserted and thus the best time to explore these evocative passages of old London.

Manager info

About: onefinestay gives you the chance to stay in someone's place while they're out of town. You get to live their life for a few days and nights. Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room. And there's service to match. Nobody wants to be a tourist, so our homes come with recommendations from the people who live in them. For everything else, we're here 24/7.

Why City of London:
You have to look very carefully for the few remains of the walls that once girded London from the outlying fields and villages. Today, despite making up just one square mile of London proper, it holds its own city status and jurisdiction (spot the red-and-white checked badge on police uniforms). Amongst the glass-clad offices you’ll find some of the city’s most historic landmarks: St Paul’s, Monument and the Royal Exchange. During rush hour the streets throng with suits, and lunch venues thrive off hungry white-collar workers. But in the evening, and at weekends, the City (as it’s known) becomes eerily deserted and thus the best time to explore these evocative passages of old London.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room, with online payment and confirmation. You get the same attention to detail and personal service too. Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There’s a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities. Once we’ve helped you settle in, we’re just a call away, 24/7. If it’s something we can’t solve over the phone, we’ll pop over to lend a hand. And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them – places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
