The Homestay Revolution:

London's Latest Trend Among Visiting Professionals


London’s hospitality industry has recently experienced a shift. Rather than looking for an extended stay in a traditional hotel, professionals visiting the city for work have discovered the magic of finding a home away from home in the spare room of a family home.
Of course, hotels are always an option. In recent years they were the obvious choice for tourists and travelling professionals. And as new technology and the short-term rental platforms phenomenon has emerged, there is more competition in the travellers’ accommodation market than ever before. Visitors to London have the upper hand.
At Doctor in the House, we offer stays for professionals with London’s best hosts.


A home away from home for a longer stay
The visiting doctors and academics that choose our rooms for short-term rentals or extended stays benefit from being welcomed by locals in a functioning London area, rather than a tourist-trap. We have an array of options across the city.
We can even find homestays in Central London, suitable for professionals who wish to frequent institutions such as the British Library, the Natural History Museum, the Crick, or UCLH. We list rooms for stays in all corners of the city, from leafy Hampstead in the North West, home to the Royal Free Hospital. To Camberwell in the South East for King’s College Hospital.
Our homestays are more secure than a simple sub-let, as our team have vetted our hosts and personally photographed the space to ensure our guests can be promised a high-quality stay.

The unique homestay experience
There is an overwhelming amount of choice for visitors choosing accommodation for extended professional stays in the current climate. As well as hotels, there are bed and breakfasts, serviced-apartments, casual sub-lets, studios, and short-term rentals.
At Doctor in the house we provide a special experience. Guests often benefit from having access to all the amenities that would be available if they rented a whole property on a short-term rental platform, along with the comfort of a welcoming host living their own life alongside you.
