    Let by

    "The rooms let by the hour."

    Does it mean 'the room which is rented by hours'?

    Can 'let by' be used in any other expression other than this?


    Please help.

    Yes it means that the rooms are rented by the hour - meaning that you can rent them for one hour, 2 hours, 3 hours, etc. Rooms of this type are used for romantic liaisons, for which the couple only needs the room for a short period of time.

    "let by" is not the expression. "Let by the hour" can also apply to bicycles, paddle boats, etc. but they are usually "rented" or "hired".
