Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Consider an Apartment On Your Next Trip to London Or Paris

Share Article

The holiday rental market has vastly expanded in the last few years and not just in the form of villa rentals, according to luxury apartment rental company AvenueStory. Frequent city visitors are increasingly more aware of the limitations that a traditional hotel stay imposes on the visitor experience of major cultural and business hubs such as London or Paris.

Check-in when your flight lands and check-out when you need to leave, not when it is convenient for others.

How does an apartment stay compare to a hotel stay? Here is AvenueStory’s top 10 reasons to rent an apartment on your next trip to London or Paris:

1.    Check In – When you arrive, at your convenience, in your apartment (not from 3pm at a hotel or having to pick up keys at some office). Also, depending on availability, check-out at the time that you want to, i.e. not at 12 noon.

2.    Unique experiences – Instead of standardised rooms, each Avenue Story apartment offers unique spaces, real homes away from home – be that a Mansion by the Louvre in Paris, or a chic townhouse in London’s Chelsea.

3.    Your own space – for the price of a standard four-star hotel room, you can have your own suite, with its living room and fully equipped kitchen.

4.    Free Wifi and International Calls – All our apartments have wifi for guests and we also include a local mobile phone which will let guests contact AvenueStory’s concierge team at all times and make any local arrangements using a local mobile phone. Landlines in our apartments also include international calls to the US, Canada and Europe.

5.    Get picked up at the airport and dropped off at your own London or Paris doorstep – without the need to worry to print directions or carry your own luggage. This service is included on all premium apartments.

6.    A bottle of wine and welcome hamper on arrival – so you can enjoy the view and begin your trip in style. No extortionate mini-bar charges and you can obviously stock up your own bar by visiting a local store.

7.    Insurance – With the apartment industry being unregulated, AvenueStory offers its clients travel, cancellation and damage insurance, offering peace of mind in case anything goes wrong before or during your trip.

8.    Daily cleaning and breakfast delivery can also be organised on request, providing the same convenience as a hotel. Cleaning times can be scheduled at our guests’ convenience.

9.    Dedicated Travel Concierge – included in the Avenue Story experience, whereby we will provide you with all the information you need to make your stay truly unique. No queueing at the concierge desk to ask for a map – our team organise any day trips and restaurant bookings and your itinerary will be ready and printed for you on arrival.

10.    Your own key – feel like you really belong in the city you have chosen, giving you the opportunity to truly live like a local.
