Does anyone know of office space to rent by the day, or hour, in central London?

I may need it week days or week-ends (may be ideal for someone with a small office who wants to make some money at the week-ends when it is empty).

I would just need desk, 2 chairs, power supply. A small office would be fine.

Many thanks.

I looked into something similar as I found myself in London alot in between meetings.

I found that most office space was only for proper hire, so you needed to commit to months etc.

So I started to look at clubs like Bhive. I have been in a few times and every time it hasn't been busy, which is good as I was concerned about getting a space. It is decorated nicely, however it isn't that large and you can easily hear what the people on the next table talking about...

The cheapest club I'd consider was www.connectionsattrafalgarsquare.com/membership/ at £350 for the year + £150 joining fee. I am guessing there might be a deal to be done! A client used it and was happy with it.

The term seems to be 'co-working' so if you google that you'll see there are lots of places, depends where you want to be.

I didn't go for it in the end as I secured a big contract which required me to be in a client's office for a lot of the week for a period. I might return to it.

Hope that helps. Good luck.

Bhive is definitely a good option, I've looked around the covent garden offices to use for business meetings and they're splendid!

Do you need to go to offices? Is it for meetings? If so, you could look into using something like Skype or Google Hangout for meetings. Otherwise, meet at your client's office, if possible?
