The Urban Hideaway

By Natalie Grant, USA, February 2012

No reviews, be the first!

Guesthouses sometimes seem to hold a zero-sum battle between location and atmosphere. Staying in the heart of any city is going to be more convenient – a shorter journey home at night, more people and activities around for you to get the flavor of an area… but it can be too loud, impersonal, and expensive for someone who just wants to take a peek. On the other hand, staying in a secluded bed and breakfast offers quiet time, friendly greetings (from people who might even remember your name!), and a healthier home base, especially after a long day of sightseeing… but it may wind up being so far away as to warrant thoughts of a car rental, or worse, that glance at the watch that says, “Well, we better start heading back if we’re going to make it home at a reasonable hour.”
