7 myths about London short lets dispelled

There are many situations where temporary accommodation in London could become a requirement. Perhaps you’re planning an extended trip to or are waiting to complete on a property purchase. Maybe you are relocating to London and want to get a feel your chosen area, or need alternative accommodation while your home is undergoing renovations. In this months article we unmask 7 myths about London short lets and explain how a Your Apartment short term rental in London is the perfect solution for temporary accommodation.

1. Short-let apartments can only be rented for a short period of time

When you rent one of our apartments in and around London, you can stay as long as you like (subject to availability of course!). Whether that’s a week, a month, or a year – or even if you don’t know how long it’ll be – we’ll help you find the ideal solution. All our apartments are offered on a flexible, contract-free basis. And if you just can’t bear to leave, extending your stay is usually not a problem.

2. Short-let apartments are more expensive than hotels

In fact, the opposite is often true. Our short-let apartment rates are around the same as the rates for one mid-range hotel room. So if you need more than one bedroom – perhaps if you’re travelling with the family or a group of friends – you’ll make an immediate cost saving. Renting an apartment also saves on other costs – with a fully fitted kitchen, there’s no need to spend on meals out every night or hotel laundry. You’ll have more space to relax in or work from home, so you won’t need to head out to a café to escape the same four walls. Plus each apartment comes with a parking space – another major cost saving if you need your car close by!

3. The quality of the property is poor with short-let apartments

We’re proud to offer a portfolio of fully furnished luxury apartments. Our apartments are light and airy, all with two bedrooms (or three bedrooms at two of our Finchley properties), two bathrooms, fully fitted kitchens and spacious living areas. And our trusted team of property professionals regularly carry out routine maintenance on all our apartments, so you can relax in the knowledge that you’ll have a high-quality place to stay.

4. Furniture will not be included in a London short let

All our apartments are fully furnished, and we go the extra mile by providing utensils, cutlery, crockery, bed linen and towels as well as flatscreen TVs and unlimited WiFi. When you book with us, we want you to feel at home straight away. So all you need to do is unpack your suitcase and make yourself comfortable.

5. White goods will not be included in a short lets in London

Our fully fitted kitchens include all white goods as well as kettles and toasters. So you won’t have to worry about squeezing your favourite chilled drinks into a tiny mini bar or waiting for your clean socks to return from the laundry. You’ll have all the fridge space and dishwashing / laundry facilities you need to hand.

6. Short-let apartments do not have good travel connections

We know you don’t want to be stuck in the middle of nowhere. Which is why our apartments are all within easy walking distance of local shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs and entertainment. Our apartments are also conveniently located if you’re looking to explore further afield. With tube or train stations nearby that will take you to the centre of London and excellent transport links to the surrounding areas and nearby tourist attractions.

7. Short-let apartments never offer car parking

The last of our 7 myths about London short lets will come as no surprise and it has to do with parking! As we are all well aware London ranks not only among the most expensive cities to park in the UK. But, also among the UK cities where it’s most difficult to find a parking space. With parking at such a premium, accommodation that comes with a parking space is rare. However, all our apartments have an allocated parking space included in the cost. Saving you money and freeing up all that time you would otherwise spend roaming the streets searching for a space!
