HYDE PARK/KENSINGTON GARDENS - SUPERB LOCATION.

Westminster Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

'Cheap and Cheerful' in a Superb Location is exactly what it is. This is a small, 20 square meter (215 square feet) studio flat with lots of light and a superb location with WiFi. STRICTLY NON SMOKING

Note: The flat has now been totally repainted, the wooden Venetian blinds have been replaced with white blinds (be careful not to be too rough with the cords please), Thick white curtains for the winter. New flooring. Nice and fresh.

The Studio: Located on the 4th floor (5th floor for North Americans), with lift, with rooftop views. The whole of one wall is window so the flat is very light indeed. One comfortable double bed, ample storage space, desk, TV, small kitchenette with microwave, fridge, sink, two ring hob to cook on, kettle, storage, cutlery and crockery.

Bathroom with wash basin, bathtub with overhead shower, toilet.

Ideal for a single or a couple visiting London for a week or more. Although small, it is very light and airy. The location is absolutely superb with the whole of London within very easy reach.

Where is it? : Just over a minute's walk from Kensington Gardens with the Peter Pan statue, Italian fountains, Kensington Palace. This just next to where Kensington Gardens joins Hyde Park. Wonderful for strolls and picnics. Walk through the park to the Royal Albert Hall, the museums of South Kensington and the up market areas of Kensington and Knightsbridge (with Harvey Nichols and Harrods).

A 15 minute walk (if you don't want to take one of the many buses or the tube) to Park Lane, Mayfair or Oxford Street (Selfridges) or a little further to Bond Street.

A 20 minute walk, or a short bus ride to Portobello Road.

Transport is fantastic in this area: The flat is a two minute walk from Lancaster Gate tube station - very frequent and short journeys to Marble Arch, Bond Street, Oxford Street, Tottenham Court Road (for Soho and Theatreland) OR to Notting Hill, Holland Park or Shepherds Bush for the largest city centre shopping centre in Europe - Westfield.

Many and frequent buses.

If this is not enough, you will be a 5 minute walk from Paddington station with the Heathrow Express, Heathrow Connect and another 4 tube/underground lines. Mainline trains to the West of England - Bath, Oxford etc, Wales.

Many buses available here too.

Queensway, a 24 hour International eating area is just a 10 minute walk away.

Super Location - London could not be easier than from this spot.

NOTE: Check in - We always try to get you in as soon as possible however, if your flight arrives early in the morning you must understand that you will not be able to enter the studio until 1100 - that is the earliest we could do it.

Check out is by 1100.

STRICTLY NON SMOKING.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Derek



Thank you for the opportunity you gave me to stay in Central London for such a reasonable price. I really think I was lucky to find your wonderfully light studio at such a bargain price.

The location was superb, as you had promised and the studio, although small, was more than adequate for my six month stay.



I shall be in touch again when I next come to London.

Great time in Centrally Located Flat.

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time while visiting London, and the Flat played a big part in that. It was very comfortable and Don (the owner's Father) was very helpful and free with tips and information about getting around London. It was also centrally located, and very close to several tube stations. Although the Flat was very comfortable, I would not recommend it for individuals with mobility issues, as the shower/bath would be hard to negotiate in that instance. Will definitely try to book the Flat again on my next visit to London.

best studio ever for a stay in London

  • 5 of 5
My friend and i had a really nice stay in this studio. The studio is comfortable, clean and have everything that necessary (towels, good bed, cooking stuff, ...). We were welcome by Derek father don who gave us a wonderful welcome (explanation about how the city work, monuments to visit he even pepared for us some food which was very thoughtful. We are two young girls and we felt very safe in this neibourghood, the studio is really close to the subway station (3-5 minutes) and next to Kensington Gardens.
We highly recommand this studio because it's well located, it's clean and comfortable, and because it's so much nicer than the hôtel. So don't hésitate and enjoy your stay !

Excellent deal

  • 5 of 5
This studio was perfect for our girls getaway. We stayed one week and we couldn't be more satisfied by the location of the studio as it is very easy to go anywhere in London thanks to the tube which is only 2 minutes away and which can lead everywhere. The flat was very bright and we had everything we needed. A special note to Don who was so nice and welcoming to us and who gave us some very helpful tips for the visits.
For sure this is an address to remember if one of us was to come back to London for holidays.

Best studio ever

  • 4 of 5
My friend and I stayed there for just 1 week in september.We found it very suitable for two young girls( we're just 18) anyway we really spent a good time. The owner, Don, was a very kind person, he talked us as a granfather and he gave as a lot of useful suggestions about the city. As far as the studio is concerned, it's located in a very comfortable zone, indeed you can reach the underground and the bus station in few minutes, and even if it's small, it's a very nice apartment, good equipped and very clean. Thank you Derek and Don!

Best location and best deal!

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I stayed for one week and could not have been happier. The property's caretaker (Don) was helpful (suggested sites to visit) and we were greeted with nibbles upon our arrival. The accommodations were well fit for two. We had everything we needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The location is in fact central to everything. We will be back. Thank you Derek (and Don)!

A very good stay

This flat was exactly what we needed. It was well arranged and perfectly well situated, next to the tube station. The district is great, and everything is at hand.
We have passed perfect holidays.
