YOUR OWN ENTRANCE TO LONDON LIFE, IN PADDINGTON

Paddington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 15 minutes to the West End

Live like a Londoner. The flat has its own entrance as originally it was a corner shop.

The open plan living/dining/kitchen is at ground level with a decorative fireplace. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking, if you wish. It has an oven, microwave, gas hob with extractor fan, dishwasher, fridge, freezer. There are two stools for eating at a counter.

A few steps down to the two bedrooms and shower room (with toilet and basin) and en suite bathroom (Shower over tub, basin, toilet and bidet).

The master bedroom, with en suite, can be arranged as a King bed (6ft wide) or as two extra long twin beds. It opens onto a small patio where you can enjoy your morning coffee or a evening drink. Smoking is allowed on the patio.

The other bedroom has a Queen bed (5 1/2 ft wide bed).

The living room has two sofas, one of which has a small double sofa bed.

The dining room seats 6.

The entire flat is about 900 ft 2 (80 square meters).

This is a non-smoking, non-pet flat.

We provide some items for your arrival but you will probably have to get more, especially for stays of more than a few days. Items include shower gel, hand wash, toilet paper, paper towel, dishwasher tabs, dishwashing liquid, tea, coffee, oil & vinegar.

We have a crib and high chair for use at no charge, upon request. Due to the nature of the decoration, the flat is okay for 2-5 year olds only if they are well behaved. It'll save you from constantly running after them.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful place in Paddington. The apartment is very clean and spacious and just perfect for a family up to 5 people. The kitchen is fully equipped. The bathrooms are large and there is a bath in case you have little children.

The apartment is perfectly located just 7 minutes' walk from Paddington underground station and the supermarket.

We highly recommend this apartment for any family looking for a comfortable stay in London.

Nacho and Joel were perfect hosts. Thanks for everything guys.

An American living in London for more than 17 years.

Joel Schweitzer purchased this apartment in 2000

The flat used to be a corner shop. It still has the stained glass windows with farm scenes. As I grew up on a dairy farm there was some resonance for me.

I was looking for a project and this house had to be completely redone. I have enjoyed doing it up, while learning the history of the area and the type of construction typical to London in the mid-19th century.

You'll like the location as it is central to the best parts of London. The area is quiet and residential but close to shops and restaurants.

We hope you, like other guests, will feel very comfortable in a flat that is like a home, much more than a rental flat or a hotel room.

Excellent London Experience

  • 5 of 5
The location here is outstanding for touring London, especially if you want an experience beyond the tourist traps. Lots of restaurant and grocery options are nearby. It is an easy walk to the tube or train. There is a pleasant shady park nearby for strolling. The owners were very responsive, happy to help us with anything we needed in the apartment or in London in general. The apartment had lovely historic details, a plethora of travel books, very comfortable bedding and an adorable kitchen where everything was just right.

Perfect Place near Paddington

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five loved this flat in Paddington near Little Venice. The apartment is clean, tastefully decorated, and close to Paddington Tube and train station. The master bedroom has a very comfortable bed and great bath and shower. The second bedroom is spacious with good storage with the 2nd bathroom just steps away. Having a washer and dryer made life in London and packing for our trip much easier. The kitchen is well equipped with a nice size refrigerator, freezer, and dishwasher. The apartment is on a quiet street and just a 5 minute walk to Paddington Station via a walkway under the road and a bridge over the canal. The area near the canal has several good restaurants and a small grocery to stop by on your way home from the tube station. Joel was friendly and very helpful during the entire booking process. When we return to London we will definitely call this home again.

Perfect location for a stay in london

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week during the triathlon world championship. The location of the flat near Paddington was ideal. We were a very short walk to the tube and several restaurants. The flat was clean and well equipped. Joel was a great host.

Great apartment, great location

  • 4 of 5
4 of us (2 couples) spent a week in this apartment and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Joel was an excellent host who welcomed us warmly and showed us around. The apartment is exactly as advertised. It has an excellent kitchen with high quality mod cons including fridge, freezer, dishwasher microwave, washing machine, dryer etc
The bedrooms are large and are well appointed with heaps of hanging space. Linen and towels are supplied and are of excellent quality. The ensuite is huge by London standards and the 2nd bathroom is great.
The lounge and dining area provides plenty of room to relax after a day out.
The apartment is no more than 5 mins walk to Paddington Station but is in a quiet and picturesque street. We really enjoyed our stay here and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
