Best Airbnb Rentals in London

Airbnb Research on London, United Kingdom

The year 2015 was a game-changer for London, as 17.4 million foreign visitors arrived in the city. This increase in arrivals resulted in an economic boost of nearly 11.8 billion Euros, with the tourism industry at the forefront. However, the profits reached far beyond London’s big businesses. Specifically, Airbnb and its hosts also benefited from the tourism growth.

London is was one of biggest laggards in Airbnb adoption but is now making up for lost time and is one of the fastest growing. 60% of the listed rentals are considered to be “entire places” while the other 40% are registered as “private rooms”. For London, seasonality does not have as significant of an impact on demand as other cities throughout the world. Occupancy rates remain consistent throughout the year, peaking in July at 78%, and lowest in January at 45%. The majority of rentals consist of private rooms and 1-room apartments, accounting for over half of all Airbnb properties in London. Central districts of London house the most rentals, with the greatest concentrations being within the neighborhoods of Shoreditch, Notting Hill, and Marylebone. In these neighborhoods, the average price for a 1-bedroom listing is $180, while private rooms average $85.

Previously illegal, as of February 2015, a new amendment to the capital’s legislation allowed homeowners to rent out their homes as short-term holiday rentals for no more than 3 months per year. This has allowed locals to make additional income while residing in one of most expensive cities in the world.
