Think Affordable Luxury is Impossible in a London Hotel? Think again…

One of the biggest problems I have when looking for accommodation in London is the price. I want to stay somewhere reasonably nice, but I don’t want to have to splash £350 a night for the privilege. So when I discovered CitizenM Bankside I was thrilled… and I hadn’t even got there yet!

Branded as ‘affordable luxury’, this is a chain hotel with the feeling of a boutique. The décor is out of this world (for an instagram-addict like me I was in heaven!), the bed one of the comfiest I’ve ever slept in, and the staff friendly and accommodating without being in-your-face annoying.

It reminded me a little of the famous capsule hotels I’d seen in Japan. While the rooms are compact, they ooze cool. The coma-inducing king-size bed was incredible, the pod-like shower and loo cubical weird but awesome, and free movies (including adult ones oh la la!) a surprising addition. Each room also comes equipped with international plug sockets, a Samsung tablet and free WiFi. In short, literally everything you ever could need.

48 Hours in Berlin

After teaching The Blogcademy that weekend, Gala, Shauna and I had two free days to explore Berlin before heading to Amsterdam midweek. Although our time was limited, we didn’t let that stop us, in fact we really packed a lot in.

Everyone I spoke to before this trip that had visited Berlin before, told me just how amazing it was. I was expecting a lot but I’m pleased to report that even with those high hopes I wasn’t disappointed. Berlin is such an amazing place! If you’re in the UK, the flight is also less than two hours, making it the perfect inexpensive and relatively stress-free honeymoon location.
