Looking for reputable flat rental agency in London

Hi, I'm planning a trip to London in Oct with my spouse and two friends. We would like to rent a flat as we did on out last trip and are looking for advice on reputable agencies. So far I have found lovinglondonapartments.com and londonguestsuites.com. The forum posts have been mixed to say the least. Several years ago we used gonative.com. They seemed to have changed over the years to focus more on business/apartment building rental. Any recommendations and advice on what to look out for when choosing an agency would be appreciated. Thanks

And of course, VRBO for the widest choice. They only provide an interface between customer and letting agent, but as long as you follow the usual golden safety rules they're a good and safe option. They don't tolerate fictional listings like some free sites do.

Thanks for all the links. I noticed nothing about London Guest Suites or Loving London. Any experience with them at all? Do you consider all the provided companies as safe bets to book with?

The reason the agencies have been mentioned is that they have track record on the forum (are reputable and seem to have good properties).

Londonguestsuites.com (not a .co.uk with same name) is OK, loving london apartments if you do a search seems to have mixed response.

I reccommend http://www.residence-apartments.com/. I have used them for my last two visits and have been very pleased with the flats and the service. He has catered to my extreme pickiness.

London Connection is another option. We are coming to London in July and they have been extremely helpful!
