Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-5)

This is a terrific apartment in the heart of Paddington, London just a few minutes walk from Paddington Railway Station (where the Heathrow Express arrives), Edgware Road, Hyde Park etc.

The apartment is located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of a corner building on an attractive, quiet block. Spread over two floors, it has a spacious, bright living room, a large, eat-in kitchen and two bedrooms on the top floor, a master bedroom and smaller bedroom. In the master bedroom there is a King-size bed from the store Loaf, and in the smaller bedrooms a queen size bed, and there is both a high quality folding bed and an airbed also available. There is both a washer and dryer and wi-fi. The apartment was recently renovated; both the kitchen and bathroom were completely refreshed and a new carpet was laid down.

All the amenities are extreme close: three grocery stores (Tesco's Paddington, Marks and Spencer's food hall) are literally around the corner; Paddington and Edgware Rd. Tube stops are a couple minutes walk; Hyde Park is 4 minutes walk; and the area has numerous restaurants of all kinds nearby. My favourite local places are the Middle Eastern restaurants on Edgware Rd. and the Front Line Club restaurant on Norfolk Place. There are also numerous pubs in the area!

The apartment is privately owned by me, but is professionally managed by a company that specializes in VRBO rentals. They ensure the apartment is immaculate before each rental and any issues during a guest's stay are resolved.

The flat is a great base for a visit to London. Because of the light and space, it's really nice to spend time in, but it's location also couldn't be more central. It's an especially good flat for families, because of its size.

Perfect amount of space and lots of light

  • 4 of 5

This two bedroom flat was perfect for our family of four. Our 12 year old son took one bedroom and our 7 year old daughter slept on the inflatable mattress, which was quite comfy for her. The bathroom was well-equipped with a full size shower and heated towel rack which was great. We were pleasantly surprised to find a fresh loaf of bread, jam and a small container of fresh milk waiting for us. The apartment was clean, comfortable and felt quite roomy and bright. It's a short walk to the Edgeware Road tube station, and full-size grocery store is also a short walk away. We did have a little confusion with the heat, but after contacting the apartment manager, it was rectified quite quickly. The only reason we don't give this rental five stars is due to the neighborhood noise. There is a pub right across the street and while they ask their patrons to respect the neighbors and keep the noise down, that's a tough request for people to follow and it was quite loud on some evenings, even with it being winter and cold out. We can only imagine what it's like when the weather is warm. BUT, this is certainly not the owner's fault. Fortunately, we always travel with earplugs and were able to drown out most of the noise by using them. Our only suggestion to add into the apartment would be a few extra blankets to use if needed. Note to renters that there is one flight of narrow stairs from the street to the main level and then another flight to the bedrooms/bathrooms.

Excellent apartment in London especially for a longer stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 loved this spacious apartment. It had everything we needed and was perfect for our 8 night stay. Close to grocery stores and the underground we found it easy to get around but also loved walking through Hyde Park. We would highly recommend.

Convenient location and comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay. The owner and the delightful woman who met us with the key were responsive and helpful, and the flat was clean and comfortable. The proximity to Paddington and Edgware Road stations made this spot really convenient for accessing all parts of London. The neighborhood is bustling with options for eating out and shopping. We would stay here again.

Nice as a home base

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with two teen boys and two adults. It is very centrally located to the subway station and train station. We found good eats in the neighborhood, especially Java U for breakfast, the most delicious croissants! We found the apt comfortable. The staircase is steep, we had no problem but if we were traveling with my parents this wouldn't have been good choice.

We didn't use the kitchen but it was very nice. The manager was so nice to have a few essentials for us in the fridge; milk, bread and jam. It was a very nice touch.

The beds were very comfortable. My teen son tried both the extra beds, the fold away bed and the aerobed. Neither were great, I think the aerobed had a small leak (probably fixed by now) and I think the fold away bed isn't meant from teens. A younger child would have been fine in the foldaway bed. So the boys slept in the second bed together and did fine.

We didn't spend tons of time in the apt but when we did it was home.

Great stay in Bayswater

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 5-night stay in this charming 2-bedroom apartment. Jasper was very helpful in making the arrangements, and Barbara had the apartment in great shape for our arrival. The location is very convenient to the Tube, restaurants, grocery stores, and Hyde Park. The kitchen was well-equipped and the beds were comfortable. I would definitely recommend this apartment.
