Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

London’s official centre! We’re located between two completely contrasting neighbourhoods: The busy Edgware Road, where you can get the freshest, best kebabs at any time of night or shop for bargain fruit and veg, at a real London street Market and sample real street food (as opposed to expensive Hipster Street food). Walk in the opposite direction and you’ll find: Little Venice prettily perched on Regents Canal (and part of a wonderful canal walk). Little Venice is home to London’s chattering classes. As well as being very pretty you’ll find the best, most exotic fruit and veg shop I’ve ever seen, one of London’s oldest (and finest) wine merchants as wells as cafes, organic butchers & grocers and little boutiques. This place is a wonderful crossroads and a great place to explore London from for the curious.

Landing in London

This place is pretty convenient from wherever you land in London. Paddington is a twenty minute walk away, or super quick bus ride. So perfect is you arrive from Heathrow or have been visiting Bristol, Oxford, Cornwall (etc). If you come from Stansted or Luton get off at Marble Arch or Baker street, and it’s a very very short bus/underground ride. King’s Cross/St. Pancreas also a short ride away on the underground (Eurostar) as is Victoria (Gatwick).

Underground, Bus or even Bike!

I think a real plus point is that there is an Oysterbike stand literally 2 minutes from the flat, which means you can travel for free by bike round central London! (Oyster bike stands are only found in the centre). 3 mins away are a couple of bus stops with many, many bus routes, also a cheap way to travel though not free! But if you want to spend top dollar on your transport, but admittedly get there faster then there are 3 tube station nearby the nearest is 8 mins walk away the furthest 15, and you have 4 lines to take far and wide.

For Iconic London?

There are so many ‘must see/must do things’ - but just to get your bearings... Regents Park is 15 minutes walk away and Hyde Park/Marble Arch are a good 25 mins by foot. You could be in Baker Street in about 15-20 mins and the same for Notting Hill, home of the movie, the carnival and Portobello Road. For most of the major galleries I think you’d be there is 20-30 minutes and if you want to explore East London it will take a bit Longer. Considering London is such a great vast city (with 6 travel Zones) - you have everything on your doorstep.

About me?

I’m a Londoner born and bred and I still love exploring this city: Coffee, food, cocktails and a fancy glass of wine are my weaknesses. So if that is your thing, I am truly and oasis of information!

Central, value for money, reliable and helpful host

  • 5 of 5

Ewa was very nice and sent us a lot of helpful information prior to our trip. The place was very well located, near the underground and main buses. The apartment is on the ground floor with easy access. The area felt secure and really near buses and underground. During our stay in London we visited the Harry Potter Studios in Watford, the apartment is also very near the overground metro so it was really convenient!! Great value for money!

Nice and quiet. Great host!

  • 5 of 5

Really nice, quiet apartment. Very peaceful. The host Jasmin sent me tips on local eateries, which was like an insider's guide and was great. This place is close to the center and you can walk to Oxford Street and Hyde park in 20 minutes. Good public transport from here as well. Loved the neighborhood, food/restaurants very reasonably priced (for London!) Would come again for sure!

Walk to bus and tube, apartment in ambient neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I attended five plays in the West End and visited Tate Modern,

Tate Brittain, the National Gallery, the British Museum plus visiting Harrods, Selfridges from this apartment. We shopped at the local Church street Market for supplies to eat late suppers in. We also entertained an overnight guest. Restaurants in the area are ethnically diverse and modestly priced. The apartment is in a vintage building and there are some ways that it is not up to Holiday Inn. The hostess was gracious and helpful. We would definitely return should we return to London.
