Today I am sharing with you my latest home while in London – Native Bankside! Native Bankside is a building with serviced apartments, all renovated and in a great location! It was an extremely cozy place to stay at and I absolutely loved it! Let me tell you why!
Apart from the apartments, Native also has a huge lounge space where reception is on the ground floor and another common space on the 1st floor with tables and kitchen facilities, where you can grab all the essentials for a quick breakfast or a pasta for dinner, and it is all for free! Of course, you will also find a gym at Native Bankside, which is so important for regular travelers like me, who wish to stay in shape while traveling.
The design of the apartments is super trendy and cool and I absolutely loved it! You will find anything you need inside your apartment, as you have your own bathroom and kitchen. The fact that you have everything within your apartment is the reason why I often prefer to stay at serviced apartments like Native than in hotels. It just feels more like home and you have the chance to cook something for yourself if you wish to.
What I also loved about Native Bankside was its building! Once a Victorian tea warehouse, it took Native many years to carefully restore it to its former glory. However, now the building looks beautiful and I love how they have managed to preserve the exposed brick walls and the arched factory windows.
The location of the building is also amazing! It is just behind the Thames and it is about 10 minutes walk to St Paul´s Cathedral and to the Shard and Borough Market! So it is very central and very close to some of my favorite areas of London!
They also have many other properties across the UK, so make sure to check them next time you travel! Below you will see some of the pictures I took while at Native! Don´t you love the design of the apartments?
