A self-catering apartment in London for rent is cheaper than a hotel
Why you get more value for your money by staying in a holiday apartment in London rather than in a hotel:
- - The restaurants in London are quite expensive. Even more so if you have to change your euros into pounds. Eating out every day will get pricey and it’s unnecessary, because for sure you’ll have better ideas to spend your travel budget on. In fact, you’ll spend twice as much money on food if you book a hotel in comparison to an apartment where you’ll have your own kitchen.
- - The London Underground is the best, the oldest but also the most expensive underground. With a GowithOh apartment you can save on public transport too. Just choose an apartment in the city centre and most of the sights will be reachable by foot.
- - London is a busy city. Time to relax after a long day out. If you’re looking forward for some entertainment during your stay, you’ll have plenty of options: Watch a movie, listen to music or surf the web with the free internet access offered.
