  1. Apartment stay is rolling up as it is cost saving + all homely amenities gives a being at home feel.
    But these luxury Apartments look perfect for city breaks.

  2. If there are a number of you holidaying it can often be more socialable to rent an apartment than an hotel particularly if one is in a city

  3. I particularly love The Cape Town & Venice apartments. They both look perfect for their locations & luxurious. This is the way to travel! Stunning ….

  4. Reading this article reminds me how much better it was when I stayed in a hotel during my trip to Edinburgh versus my stay at a hotel in London. The cities may vary but the apartment v/s hotel stay difference is huge! Apartments allows you a better sense of the city and gives you a lot more freedom and ownership of your stay- a feeling of ‘belongingness’ perhaps?

  5. I really like the Cape Town apartment – gorgeous and I imagine the view is great too. I’m not keen on the Grovesenor Penthouse Suite. Maybe it’s just that horrible office desk!
