What a great host! Our host was so helpful...even helped carry our bags up and down the 115 steps! The weather was hot so we took full advantage of the fans! Really enjoyed how handy the apartment was to Paddington station, buses, and the lovely small grocery stores inside Paddington station. Really enjoyed fixing our breakfast each morning. Really enjoyed the place!!!
What a joy! Robert was amazing to help with luggage and information. Friendly! Friendly! Being two from Texas, we had no idea what to expect. We were so close to everything we needed Paddington Tube station, food, and lots of things to see. If you love to sew, Joel and Sons fabric (the queen uses their fabrics) is very close. We are in better shape than when we left home. We are in our 70's and walking the stairs daily let us exercise even before we left the building. We can't say enough wonderful things about our stay in London and want to go back. Memories for a lifetime. Thanks Robert... Bill and Linda taylor
Fantastic flat that is close to transport and very central. A quick walk to Hyde Park. Robert was lovely and helped with our luggage and explained everything to us. The flat was clean and had everything you needed. The bed was small for 2 people but after such huge days we slept really well. Lovely views from the top floor and it was a quiet building.
This was our second stay here and we just love it. The location is fantastic as Paddington Station is an excellent launch pad to the metro lines, Heathrow Express and trains to other locations outside London.
The five flights of stairs may not appeal to everyone but offer amazing view from the apartment windows and reduce the city noise from such a prime London location. An easy walk to Hyde Park and Oxford Street.
Compact but everything needed for a stay is there.
Robert is an excellent host, responsive to emails, carried our bags up the stairs (no mean feat) and made us feel very welcome.
We will be back!
We stayed here for 11 nights and found the studio to be a great place to stay. The owner Robert who was lovely met us at the flat and helped with our suitcases up the stairs and showed us how everything worked. The studio was clean and had everything you needed. Yes it is up the top of a lot of stairs but we managed them fine everyday. The views are lovely and the apartment is very central. Hyde Park a few minutes walk away, Paddington Station just minutes away as are supermarkets, restaurants, pubs and buses into central London. The only negative and it is a small one would be the small bed. It was very cosy but comfortable and after the busy days we had we slept really well, but if you like a lot of space it might be a problem. Robert did provide a single blow up mattress though if we needed it, which we didn't. We enjoyed the studio so much we are going back again.
