Overview

About the property

One Of Two Adjoining Properties / Families Especially Welcome

Apartment is located above a Security Showroom directly across from St. Mary's Hospital (where Prince George was recently born!) and only a one minute walk from Paddington Station.

There are several flights of stairs to climb after entering through the front door so access to disabled or elderly may be limited.

Upon entering the apartment you will be greeted by black & white tiled floor, huge windows and the exposed brick wall of the living/dining room. A large, well equipped kitchen also awaits you. We have just installed a brand new bathroom on the ground floor, featuring shower, toilet and sink! The flat is tastefully furnished with brand new, modern furniture throughout. There is a small rooftop patio for barbequing or sunbathing (weather permitting). We also ask that smoking be confined to this area!

Up one flight of stairs you will find the three bedrooms, the bathroom and a utility closet. Two of the bedrooms furnished with double beds, while the third is smaller and features a bunk bed (sleeps 2). Floors on the upper level are hardwood except for the bathroom which features black and white tiling.

Recessed lighting is featured throughout the apartment. There is central heating but no air conditioning. In the rare event of a heat wave we will provide you with fans! A cleaner is available on request (at your own expense).

Should you be part of a larger group, you have the option of also renting our next door property which has 4 bedrooms & 2 bathroomss and can sleep up to 12 persons!

Wonderful owner and staff- very accommodating

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful stay in London! The flat was so easy to access from Paddington Station, and was in walking distance from a great local pub where we ended several of our nights. Thank you for your flexibility in accommodating us when our arrival time changed at the last minute. Also, we found the flat quite spacious for our family of 5. Any medical professionals or science enthusiasts should certainly visit the Alexander Fleming museum- located in St. Mary's Hospital directly across the street. It was a hidden treat! We had a great stay, thanks!

Great location, comfortable flat.

  • 5 of 5

Nice spot. Close to underground station, and Paddington train station. Also, bus stop just across the street. Mini-market just a couple of doors down, and many restaurants. Well equipped apartment. Overall, a great place to stay in London.

The place was small but sufficient, clean and utilitarian

  • 3 of 5

The beds were tough with very apparent spring mattresses but the rooms were decent and what we needed. It's not a place to hang out in as there is no balcony but it works for a place to crash and we felt safe. Very easy access to transit.

Good location. Clean. Convenient.

  • 3 of 5

The location, check-in, help, and general comforts of the apartment are good. However the beds are uncomfortable. Mattresses hurt while sleeping because the springs poke through and sheets aren't soft. So if you are looking for a luxurious bed and sleeping conditions you won't find it here. One of the table fans in the room didn't work and we weren't given a replacement as they didn't have one. I do hope the owners update and change out the bedding and mattresses. That would help a lot. The kitchen is adequately stocked with cooking pots, utensils, and flatware/dinnerware. However as with other VRBOs we have stayed in the fridge didn't have condiments - ketchup, mayo, butter, etc. These kitchen staples are a pain to buy when you are staying for a short time. So it would be nice. Even a fruit bowl or welcome gift would be a nice touch. The kids were given toys to use while we were there which was good. We enjoyed the proximity to everything and the street/location was vibrant and varied. Would give this rental 4 stars if the beds were more comfortable.

Great Apartment in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Paddington. Great location away from the hustle and bustle of London. The space of the 3 bedroom apartment was an absolute bonus.

Beware that this apartment is on the 3rd floor then the bedrooms are on the forth floor... being fit and able is a must.

Owner's Response: Funny, but I always presumed Paddington was IN London!!!! Could I have been wrong all these years? (Kidding of course)! Glad you found it peaceful!

Perfect family hangout

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our family! We were traveling with our 12 & 9 year olds as well as a family friend. The apartment was spacious enough for us to each have space from the others at the end of the day (or when the kids weren't getting along), yet cozy enough to enjoy each other's company as well.

This is a third floor walk up, so be prepared to navigate the stairs. We just counted it as part of our exercise each day - lol! All three bedrooms as well as one bathroom are upstairs in the unit. The second bathroom is on the main floor with the kitchen/dining/sitting area.

The apartment is located conveniently close to Paddington Station - only 15 mins from Heathrow if you take the express! We were able to get everywhere we wanted to go from Paddington Station following the tube as well as the National Rail Service trains.

There are several excellent coffee and pastry shops just steps from the front door as well. The restaurants we tried in the neighborhood were good and decently priced. Our favorite was Ya Holla, a Lebanese place kitty-corner to Paddington Station.

There is a convenience store near the entrance to the apartment, but we were charged different prices each time we shopped there. There are several other grocery stores that are within walking distance though. Our only recommendation for the apartment would be to have a few reusable grocery bags available as all the stores charge for bags.

Everything else we needed was well provided. Plenty of place settings, glasses and tea/coffee mugs, toaster, electric hot water kettle, extra towels, dishwasher, washer, dryer, etc... Having a washer and dryer is a must when traveling with kids. Be prepared for them to take a little longer to do their job than the American ones though;-)

We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book this apartment again if we return.
