Hotels are really very costly in London for the short stay. So better to book apartments for short stay. Some websites are http://www.houseofmoli.com, http://www.holidaylettings.co.uk and http://www.directholidaylets.com

1 small tip, always inspect the room first if you can.

I have stayed in so many places that has an air-conditioning unit outside which then oscillates outside against the window pane and causes a 24 hour droning sound.

Tip number 2...
dont always take the cheapest hotel as you could find that it works out more with the daily tube ticket as many of these cheaper hotels are not in central london.

Tip 3.
Check any swedes in london websites ... you may find a swede who lives full time in london and has no place in sweden to stay when they want to visit ... you may always be able to work out a deal with each other.

This site I managed to get really good prices on with our trip.
I paid something less than 20 pound per night on a 4 star hotel special near Heathrow.

Another good idea, HALE.

In my rather limited experience, I have found that hotels, etc., around airports anywhere are the cheapest places to stay in - especially now when tourism is down, and they have vast overcapacity - and provided they have good, cheap transport to downtown, they should be seriously considered.

we always use www.tripadvisor.com. you get comments from people who have stayed in the hotel. we have been using this for 4 years and have always been happy with the hotel we choose sfter reading all the comments. It is essential if you are staying in a cheap hotel anywhere. we always use it before booking a trip with a tour operator.

I've used Ivy Lettings for short term, they might also do some longer term rentals.

Foxtons are a big real estate agent in London who deal with furnished and unfurnished rentals over 6 months.
