London is a city unlike any other in the world. Rich in history, culture, fine dining and shopping, the metropolis has enough to cater to virtually any taste. Looking for hip bars and trendy coffee hangouts? Head on over to Hackney. Want to be gape at Instagram-worthy, candy coloured houses? Notting Hill and Chelsea are your friends. And who can forget the gorgeous, old-world bohemian buzz of Hampstead? Or the always-buzzing beat that is Soho?
There are literally hundreds of reason to visit London, so we'll just assume you've been convinced and are actively planning your next trip.
But how can you make sure your getaway is truly memorable?
Here are three things you should do to ensure your stay is unforgettable:
1. Stay in beautiful, Victorian home, hand-selected by OneFineStay
Where you stay in London can make or break your experience. And while hotels may be better suited to some travellers, renting short-term accommodation can be both more comfortable and less costly for most others. But how do you know the rental will live up to your standards? Unlike hotels, it's difficult to find trusted reviews of accommodation. That's why OneFineStay does the heavy lifting for you, sourcing only the most outstanding properties in London.

2. Customise your rental with essentials from Rentuu.com

Or perhaps you need to find an extra air bed for a friend who wants to stay at yours. Whatever the case, Rentuu.com is the go-to for all your customised needs. Designed with the busy globetrotter in mind, ordering a rental delivery will only take a couple of minutes of your time, and will be collected from you once you're done.
