London epitomises a metropolitan lifestyle. It embraces a melting pot of food, arts, theatre, a Royal family and draws in over 15 million visitors every year.
When deciding where to stay, tourists are generally faced with two choices. To opt for high-priced hotels, which tend to be the same in every country; or to settle for small, cramped, shared accommodation reminiscent of student accomodation.
However now there is a third option, Kippsy.
Kippsy is a collaborative accommodation website which taps into the current trend of the sharing economy to connect landlords to travellers in luxury, centrally-located apartments.
Research has shown that visitors are looking for flexibility and 'home comfort', from a base allowing easy exploration of the vibrant 'local' regions of London including Primrose Hill, Notting Hill, Battersea, Islington and Greenwich. Kippsy offers over 1,000 short-term listings in London that can cater for all tastes and budgets.
Two Kippsy apartments below highlight where convenience, luxury and individual style combine to give visitors a sleep less ordinary in London town.
