Over the past month we have stayed in lots of guest apartments. No one under the age of 18 has booked one but we’ve all had our favourites. So here is my view on an ideal apartment.
One of the worst things you can have in a guest house is that you are staying there fore a week with a limited number of clothes and the is no washing machine! On air bnb it will tell you if there is a washing machine but when Mummy or Daddy booked they never thought to check the washing limits. So quality no. 1 is there a washing machine?
You would think that with a family of 6 there would be a lot of squabbles over the bathroom especially when we are used to the luxury of 6 lavatories at home but the only thing to say about the bathrooms is plan carefully if you make it very clear that “I am going to have a shower tomorrow morning” you should be okay.
Being a large family we do always end up sharing a room or sleeping on a sofa. It was quite a shock for me when I found out I was going to have to share a bed with Magnus however we are a creative family and magnus ended up sleeping in a cot. For some reason I don’t quite understand some family apartments don’t have one single bed in them where as others don’t have a double however there was nothing really wrong with the beds in any apartments that we stayed in.
For some reason no one seems to understand that people do cook nowadays and so some kitchens have been a slight struggle to cook with. When we get home everyone we meet will be weirded out by our obsessing over garlic peelers and colanders. Mummy did enjoy Krakow’s “kitchen of a real cook”. But we (Mummy) have always managed to make a delicious meal in every kitchen we have stayed in
We have really enjoyed some of the apartments that were in the centre of the city yet would have missed the amazing experience of a train to Cologne with Pink Panther and two fairies
