When I had a long weekend in London I was very much looking forward to staying in an apartment, where as mostly I would use hotels. The ‘home away from home’ feeling isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I love the idea of having my own space, being able to cook if I wish and feeling less claustrophobic as you do in some of those tiny central London hotel rooms. FG Property Management look after a variety of luxury apartments in London, Paris, Barcelona, Marrakesh, Amsterdam and Rome. All apartments essentially, are privately owned and whether its for 6 months or 1 year they are let out through FG Management. All are kept in exceptional condition, cleaned after each guest and each one unique. The selling point is that they are mostly short lets, unlike a lot of apartment rentals, you can have one just for a night!
FG’s Mission: Our mission is to provide a fully curated experience for Guests, offering service & style of a boutique hotel with the comfort & privacy of a home. Enjoy one of our apartments in London, Paris,Barcelona, Amsterdam, Rome and Marrakesh.
We arrived in London on a rainy Friday afternoon and headed for the City Relay office, a company that do the ground work. From handing out the keys, giving you directions to offering information packs on the area – they are the ones on hand if you need anything throughout your stay.
We gladly escaped the rain and arrived at our top floor apartment in a beautiful old Kensington terrace building. As you do, we headed straight for the bedrooms to see which one was the best! Both were a great size and lead off from the front room. With a mainly open plan living space the kitchen/diner looked over the lounge area and had a great flow throughout. The bathroom was recently renovated with clean white tiles and modern fittings – not forgetting the brilliant, hot power shower!
The biggest bonus of the apartment was its location. Five minutes walk from the nearest Tube Stop and 10 to 15 minutes into central London. It made such a difference being able to pop back to the apartment and freshen up during our busy weekend or just to have a quick power nap before a night out.
The whole experience was well organised and easy. I know what it’s like to arrive in a big city after hours on a plane and all you want is either a comfy bed or a nice shower. The last thing you need is hassle finding your hotel, or getting the wrong room. City Relay worked well with FG Management to provide an efficient service and it truly made our mini break in London memorable, I won’t hesitate in using them again for my future trips whether business or pleasure!
