Renting an Apartment in London

London is the center of the United Kingdom, and is home to many attractions to visit and things to do. Whether you're just stopping by for a few days or would like to stay longer, consider renting an apartment, house or town home in the area. Many of these come with a barbecue and hot tub, and are pet friendly.

Museums

With London's storied past, you likely won't be surprised to find out that there are well over a dozen museums situated throughout the city. The museums you choose to attend depend primarily on your tastes.

British Museum

The British Museum is one of the oldest museums in the world and houses around eight million priceless objects, including everything from the Rosetta Stone to the Sutton Hoo ship burial. The Discovering the World exhibit is a particular highlight, as it shines light on London in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Science Museum

The Science Museum has seven floors filled to the brim with scientific collections and exhibits. Some of these focus on historical education and medical history, while others choose to highlight contemporary science and technology. This fascinating museum is a must see when visiting London.

Shopping

Shopping is one of the most relaxing ways to pass the time in London. There's so many options to choose from on every street corner in the city, from antique shops to contemporary fashion stores and everything in between.

Oxford Street

Whatever you're shopping for, Oxford Street is the place to be in London, as there are well over 300 shops on this street. For high quality department stores, you can't do better than Debenhams and John Lewis. Topshop and River Island are the go-to destinations for designer fashion.

Notting Hill

While this street is primarily famous because of the film with the same name, it's one of the best shopping streets in all of London. This is the place to shop if you're into rare books, vintage clothing, organic food and antiques. Some of the better shops include Huntsman and Sons and Gieves and Hawkes.

Food and Drinks

When traveling to London, visitors will immediately discover that there are an endless number of upscale restaurants, diners and cafes. No matter what your budget is, there are plenty of delicious restaurants to choose from in the city.

The Ledbury

One of the most luxurious eateries in all of London is The Ledbury. The menu contains a vast array of tasty French dishes, including grilled cuttlefish and Iberico pork. The primary meal consists of four courses. Pair your meal with a sumptuous glass of rose wine or champagne.

Regency Cafe

When in London, the Regency Cafe is your best bet for a full English breakfast and menu. The prices are good and the portions are large. Their main breakfast includes a fried egg, bacon, sausage, baked beans, toast and a choice of coffee or juice.

Weather

London is a fairly comfortable destination all year round. The average highs during the summer months of July and August only reach into the mid 70's, while the average highs during wintertime are slightly below 50. While London is known as a rainy city, most days throughout the year are generally sunny. The best time to visit would be in the spring, as the temperatures are rather mild and the crowds aren't yet at their summer peaks.

How to Get There

The only way to get to London from the United States is by plane, all of which fly to the London Heathrow Airport. Once you're in the city, you can get around in several ways. The most comfortable and luxurious forms of transportation come with a rental car or private car, while public transportation includes buses and the London Tube.

The apartment is in a quiet street ensuring a good nights sleep even with the window open. A short walk to Kensington Palace Gardens a bonus for early morning walks. Also close to the beautiful Holland Park. Everything needed was in the apartment including a good washing machine, the bed was comfortable, good pillows and plenty of space to spread out. It was warm when we were there and we had a nice breeze with the windows open, although it may get hot on a really hot day as on the top floor. Would definitely recommend. Peter and Fiona

My friend and I stayed for (9) days in the flat (2 women from USA), and it was great having our own rooms, and plenty of space to sprawl out and relax at night. Very close to Victoria Station and near lots of great restaurants (we recommend O'Sole Mio!). We loved having the washing machine and dishwasher! Our neighbors were very quiet, (a huge plus!), and the balcony windows were perfect to have open in the evenings. Being two single women, we also liked that it was on an upper floor, so we could have the windows open, and feel safe. I would recommend this to business travelers looking for a Zone One address that's on a quiet street, to single travelers, as well as families with one or two kids. A Place Like Home was very responsive to our needs, and was able to help us when we had a bit of trouble with the keys. (Turns out the door just needed a little WD-40! Thanks for the help Ed!) Nick was fantastic to work with - he was able to answer my many questions, and was available to us throughout our stay. Keren met us at the flat (and helped us when we were a bit lost!), and check-in and check-out were very easy. A Place Like Home gets 5/5 Stars! The reason this flat only receives 4/5 is because the WiFi doesn't reach the lower bedroom, the electricity in the flat literally fried the inner workings of our hairdryers and hair straighteners (to the point where we had to pick up a hair dryer in London - we left it in the flat, so enjoy future travelers!), the lack of plugs in the bathroom, along with the lack of good lighting in the bathroom. (While that might not seem very important, putting makeup on with huge shadows on your face is not ideal in a fashion-forward city like London!) Also be advised that there is a small staircase to get to the flat, so if you have a lot of suitcases, be ready to carry them up a very small stairwell!

                                                                                                    4 of 5

Communication with Hugo and Lizzie during the booking stage, upon our arrival and for the refund was very easy. Emails and calls were promptly replied to and any questions or concerns were always answered. What we really enjoyed was being able to come 'home' after long days of sightseeing around London. The flat was quiet, clean and had nice big windows that allowed for a nice breeze to flow through. We enjoyed being able to spread out our maps on the dining table and having the comfy living room to sit down at the end of the day. The beds were comfortable and the cotton covers were cozy. Perhaps the one negative we found with the apartment was the convenience to the tube stations. We have visited London a few times and are familiar with the tube but did not realize the Kensington/Olympia station nearby does not have easy connections or run as often as other lines; the more convenient line stations that are nearby are at least a 10 minute walk away. Often, after being out for the day walking all over London then coming home late in the evening, we would take a cab to the apartment from one of these stations. For us, if a different tube station was closer or more convenient, we would have given 5 stars for our review. Overall, it was a good stay...and the apartment is especially handy if attending the Kensington/Olympia conference centre. On a side note, The Havelock Tavern (about a 3 minute walk away) provides fantastic meals and a lovely atmosphere-highly recommend going for dinner.
