Q and A

Q&a

March 12, 2006|By SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS

Two couples are looking for a flat in London for four or five days next summer. How can we find a rental?

There are several companies that offer short-term rentals of homes or apartments in London, usually near Underground stations and within walking distance of tourist sights and shopping. Always check to see what the minimum stay is.

Here are a few worth checking out:

Emperors Gate Short Stay Apartments (www.apartment-hotels.com) has one-bedroom suites in the southwest section of central London near several Underground stops. It's 10 minutes from Harrod's and 15 minutes from Buckingham Palace on the Underground. There's free Internet access and a laundry room.

On the luxury end, Lancaster Gate Hyde Park Apartments (londonchoice.com/lancast ergate) has two- and three-bedroom apartments across from Hyde Park and boutique shopping on Bond Street. Prices start at about $396 per night for four.

You can also rent a home or apartment from a London resident who is away from the city. Coach House London Vacation Rentals (rentals.chslondon.com) has a variety of properties for a five-night minimum.
