City of London apartment description

Visual feast

Because here’s a home for body and soul. Just a ten minute walk from St Paul’s, this airy apartment is housed in a vigorously contemporary building, right in the heart of ancient London. Peer carefully into the backstreets and you’ll detect cobbles once paced by the likes of Dickens and Pepys, towered over by the Brutalist masterpiece that is the Barbican. Whether you’re here for business in the City or sight-seeing along the Thames, your location couldn’t be handier, while inside, this home’s bright light and clean lines will refresh and inspire you for the day ahead.

Food for thought

Your hosts are an architect and a nutritionist. Put them together and the result is a life that’s just as good as it looks. They’ve a second home in Wales, and when they’re not lighting up the capital’s party scene they’re tearing through the valleys on their mountain bikes.

By any measure

There’s a real elegance to this home, a sense that every shape and every shade has been chosen to suit its space. The sitting room divides into three, a reading area (which can be screened off with concertina doors to create a second bedroom), a dining area and the main space. Curl up on the sofa or the curiously curving chairs, then move to the sunlit table and open the doors out onto the balcony. Take an architecture magazine to the reading room, where you’ve books and a sofa bed, or stay and admire the Le Corbusier print adorning the main space. The galley kitchen is long and sleek, and, courtesy of your hosts, there’s a terrific collection of cookbooks.

The master bedroom is understatedly stylish, with rich blue walls loaded with Penguin classics, and doors opening out onto the balcony. The bathroom has a retro tinge, with its butchers’ tiles and mirrors, and we know you’ll adore our White Company toiletries and fluffy towels.

                          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:
                          Make plans Because architecturally, and gastronomically, this is one of the most rewarding parts of the capital. Head to Smithfield for some Victorian grandeur and dine in Michelin starred St John, before ambling past the suits at Bank, through the City and down to the river. Then, explore Tate Modern or follow the water around to Covent Garden. The tube from Barbican to Oxford Circus takes around fifteen minutes.

                          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.
