OneFineStay Launches Updated Version of iPhone App
On this side of the pond, Airbnb provides not only a website where travelers can book time at a home away from home instead of a hotel, but also an app that can offer the same service. But if you happen to hail from the UK -- specifically London -- or you're looking to travel there, you might want to consider their version of this service, an upscale website (and attendant iPhone application) called OneFineStay. Airbnb bills their service as a community marketplace designed to connect those with rooms (or apartments, or houses) for rent with anyone seeking a place to lay their head when they travel. But OneFineStay has taken a slightly different approach by calling their listings unhotels. In other words, you'll get all the comforts of home, but in a house that's likely far nicer than yours. And they're taking it even a step further by offering features that will help you to live like a local while you're living in a local's house, whether it's for a night, a week, or longer.
