I typically opt to stay in hotels during my travels, however, I’ve recently found that serviced apartments are a great alternative, especially for longer stays.  Last month, I stayed at a Go Native serviced apartment in Monument, which had beautiful views of London’s iconic Shard.
 

Most of the Go Native apartments cost less than a hotel of a similar specification and offer much more in terms of value and facilities.  There are 1,300 apartments across London alone, more than any other operator, in addition to properties across Europe and the US.

Booking is simple and easy is as easy – the Go Native staff are incredibly friendly and there’s a 24/7 customer service line if you have any queries.  On entry, you are shown to your apartment and given a welcome letter.

I had such a comfortable stay at the Go Native property in Monument.  It was spacious with wooden floors, modern fittings and most importantly of all, it was immaculately clean.
For days where you might fancy dining in, there is the option to prepare something in the well-equipped kitchen, which comes complete with utensils, pots and pans.  The cupboards are stocked with tea and coffee and there’s milk in the fridge, so you can make yourself a cup of tea on arrival.
The bathroom is equipped with a bath, monsoon shower, heated towel rails and lots of fluffy towels, not to mention being stocked with generously sized White Company products.

Whether your stay is for business or pleasure, for a few days or for a few months, I can’t recommend booking a Go Native apartment enough.  Many (although not all) of the Go Native apartments have a seven-day minimum stay, so they are a particularly great option for those who are planning a longer stay.  Apartments are also well worth considering if travelling in a group – splitting the cost will likely work out a lot cheaper than getting separate hotel rooms.

I had a wonderful stay at the Go Native property in Monument – I felt so much more at home than staying in a hotel room.   I would definitely book another apartment with them in the future, be it in the UK or beyond.

The Monument premium studio apartments, like the one that I stayed in, are currently reduced from £319 per night to £178 per night, based on a 7-night minimum stay.
