Renting 1 Bedroom flats for vacation

by venture4u

We are going to be in London at the end of September. We have seen 1 bdrm flats for rent. They almost sound too good to be true. Can anyone tell me if these are truely flats to rent or if they are scams?

They're for real.

*Some* are for real. Be sure to use a reputable agency.

It is not possible to say whether they are for real without knowing exacrly what flats you have seen and where you have seen them advertised.

Perhaps you could post a link, or give a few more details (especially location)? Then we might be able to guide you more specifically.

The ones on vrbo are fine, but not what I'd call 'too good to be true' in terms of rental charges. Those rates are petty standard for London, really, as one would expect. One must also expect a certain amount of 'puff' in terms of location, beauty of furnishings etc..they are adverts, after all!

The official London tourist information site has an excellent search engione which lists self-catering accommodation as well as hotels etc. I suggest you look there for ideas:

Before I moved to the UK, I often rented a very nice flat at One Harrington Gardens. I'm sure they have a website, and the building is in a terrific location and near a Tube stop with two lines running through. There are lots of flats for rent all over London, but I'd stick with ones that perhaps appear on www.traveladvisor.com with reviews.

Interesting site there leics. They quote rates for the mid-range apartments, but there are no posted rates for the economy apartments...

Re: Renting 1 Bedroom flats for vacation

by leics

That is their 'economy' rate. The site places 1 Harrington in their economy section:

Costs even more if you book it here:

They put the economy rate on the mid-range page? Sounds strange...

Re: Renting 1 Bedroom flats for vacation

by leics

It's a mid-range place listed on the economy section...looks like a website mistake to me.

How times change! Those rooms shown on the website look Nothing like the ones I used to stay in, although the bathrooms were always modern marble and fantastic. I think someone bought the building and refurbished the entire place, and more in keeping with the neighbourhood. I used to pay about £99 a night but that was quite awhile ago. All the rooms had kitchens and a great concierge. I bet he's gone, too. :-)

Travel Tips for London

Visit the British Museum.

by asantetravel

I vividly remember touching some of the Egyptian sculptures. I think they allow it with the idea that the objects were created to be placed in the elements, so they can stand up to a few million hands – definitely one of the greatest policies of any museum I’ve visited. It was tremendous to rub my fingers into the grooves created by the hieroglyphics on the granite figure of Amenophis.

The Monument

by deeper_blue

Standing 202 feet high and over 300 years old is the monument. It was built in recognition of the rebuilding of London after the fire of 1666. Sorry but there are no lifts here, you have to climb the long winding spiral staircase all the way to the top. However it's well worth it for the view.

Tower 42...

by BluBluBlu

I always think of this building by its original name which was the Natwest Tower named after the high street bank that commissioned it. In 1980 when it was built it was by far the tallest building in London. I was lucky enough to attend a party on the top floor and the view was fantastic...but no digital camera's back then!

Its on Old Broad street, between Bank and Liverpool Street...

red pillar boxes

by uglyscot

The red pillar box for posting letters in dates to Victorian times when the use of postage stamps , which made sending letters easier ,was introduced.
The size and shape may have changed since then, but not the characteristic 'pillar box red' colour.
In some places the old Victorian pillar boxes ,which were hexagonal and not round like they are today, still exist although only as memories of the past. One such relic is in Hampstead High Street opposite the post office.

Read about London

by KennetRose

Invest in 'The London Encyclopaedia' edited by Ben Weinreib and Christopher Hibbert. It's not a tourist guide, but a compendium of historical information that brings the most humdrum locations to life. Its accuracy has often being questioned, but I can guarantee that it will keep you fascinated long after you have returned home.
