London’s sprawling city can make finding a location for accommodation a challenge. The local touch when renting a house or apartment transforms the experience of a large city like London. Even if you are a foodie and have restaurant reservations lined up, these listings below offer more than a well equipped kitchen. Here’s our selection of some of the best Airbnb’s in London.
$747/night River Thames
For those who are looking for a centralized location and a view of the skyline next to the River Thames, this big apartment for $747 a night is worth it.
Camden is a great neighborhood – some would say, London at it’s best – full of shops, bars and Camden Market and Primrose Hill. Considering the location and beautiful decor it’s a steal for only $68 a night.
$955/night, Greater London
The place is walking distance from the London Museum and School or Arts. The two-floor penthouse features original street art and sleeps up to 16 people.
Looking at this listing, it seems almost too good to be true for the price. It’s not greatly exciting, but it’s clean, has a garden and is located in Knightsbridge, which is perfect for a first-timer to London.
$1,082/night, Cadogan Square, Knightsbridge
This gaff once cost over 8 million pounds. It’s all yours for just over $1000 a night. If you need luxury and glam, this will tick those boxes. It’s located in Cadogan Square, one of the more exclusive areas of Knightsbridge. The owner asks for background information about guests before booking. If you are not PLU — people like us — don’t bother inquiring.
$2,379/night, Piccadilly Circus
Don’t be too alarmed at the cost per night as this 7-bed, six-floor townhouse in Piccadilly Circus sleeps up to 30. It goes all out in the way of comfort with many jacuzzis and a steam room.
The 20-foot-high penthouse was designed and crafted with “love and wit” by Scandinavian designer Rowan. It’s right next to the canal facing Nottinghill, famous for carnival in August.
$1,387/night, Hyde Park
The place makes our list mainly for its location. The house has a balcony overlooking Hyde Park which is famous for its art and architecture exhibitions. Perfect place to enjoy a spot of afternoon tea.
This place makes the cut because of the decor. The house has been designed in traditional British country house style. Located in Chelsea it’s tucked away in a very quiet part of the district. It makes it a super base for exploring the city without sacrificing a good night’s sleep.
$694/night, South Kensington
Just off Sloane Avenue, this three bedroom, renovated house would be perfect for those in London for a long weekend. Note, it’s in a relatively posh area, so remember to pack your Barbour jacket and wellington boots.
