If you are looking for temporary accommodation in London, then you may wish to consider becoming a property guardian.
Accommodation in London is well know for being expensive especially for short term rentals. However an alternative to short lets is the Property guardian model. Property guardians occupy otherwise empty properties and in doing this, help to protect the building simply by living in it.
Many of the properties are unusual in that they may be former commercial space, but if you are looking for short term lets in London this is an option well worth considering if you are prepared to open your mind to this type of accommodation. Short term lets range from budget studio flats, perfect for people moving house, to spacious townhouses, school buildings and commercial space. For those considering cheap short term lets in flats, rooms in house share and self catering accommodation in East London, or, located in Central, North-West and West London’s areas, mainly in zone 1 and 2.
So for temporary accommodation in London, rather than an expensive and un-friendly serviced apartment. If you are looking for your own space and something both affordable and quirky. Then consider Ad Hoc.
