Please come and enjoy my flat in the true heart of Central London! Why do I love living here? Because everything I need or want is so close! It's 5 minute walk from Paddington Station (so from Heathrow to my flat is 30 minutes if you take the Heathrow Express!), 5 minute walk from Hyde Park, and a 10-minute walk over to the charming cafes and cool shops of Notting Hill and Portobello Road! Also within walking distance is Little Venice (~15 mins) and Abbey Road Studios (~20 mins).
My flat is one of those historical white stucco period conversions - a true 'only in London ' type of experience. It's located on the 2nd floor (1st floor for you Americans), so there aren't too many stairs to navigate with bags. The ceilings are very high, and the rooms are bathed in natural light most of the day.
While at my place, you'll have use of the entire flat, including the master and guest bedrooms, living room, bathroom, and roof deck. You are also free to do your laundry with my washer and dryer (the latter is a real rarity in London!!)
I hope you enjoy staying in my flat and discovering London!
3 Golden Rules of Kelly's Flat:
1. Please take your shoes off while inside the flat - London experiences a lot of rain, and this helps keep things tidy. :)
2. *Absolutely no smoking!!* I'm serious - not even out the window. If you are a smoker and are thinking of staying with me, I kindly request that you look for another, smoke-friendly place.
3. This is my home, so please do your best to leave all as you found it - your courtesy is much appreciated!
That's it! :)
We just spent some days in Kelly's flat and it was terrific. Indeed, it's a lovely flat as shown in the pictures, well-located in the center of the city in a nice neighbourhood, with Paddington station, shops and restaurants. Hyde park etc in easy walking distance. The flat has all you need and you can feel at home quickly. Kelly and her maid have been very responsive and flexible to accommodate check-in and out as it fitted best for us. We can highly recommend Kelly's flat, and we would know a place where to come back! Thanks Kelly for the wonderful stay we had in London!
My family (brother and grandparents) and had a great stay in London at Kelly's apartment. It was in the perfect location - close to the Paddington tube/train station and a short walk to many restaurants, pubs, etc. After a slightly bumpy start (note to others: confirm definite time and place for check-in before arriving), we enjoyed the apt thoroughly. The bathroom was a little small and there wasn't much room to put personal belongings, but we were able to work with it. It's also worth noting that the neighborhood was very quiet and the streets were well-lit. I would definitely recommend Kelly's apt to anyone visiting London!
My husband and I have just spent a week in Kelly's flat and it was just as described - "lovely". Kelly made us feel very welcome with her communication via email and arranged for her boyfriend to meet us on arrival. Checking out early was not a problem either. The flat is just as seen in the photos and the location was safe and close to shops, Underground, Paddington Station and several tourist attractions. There isn't a TV but, for us, that was a nice change. It was great having access to WiFi, washing machine and dryer. We would love to stay at the flat again in the future if the opportunity arises and would highly recommend it to others. We were very comfortable and, as it was our first experience with Airbnb, we were very relieved for all to go well. Thank you Kelly.
We had a great time at Kellys appartment. It was very bright with wonderful wooden floors. Exactly as advertised :-)
Apartment is just awesome and location so close to Hyde Park and Paddington is ideal. We've spent there great weekend and we're looking forward to visit London and also Kelly's apartment again. :)
Great apartment. Great host. Exactly as on the website plus more. Hope to stay again next summer but for longer. Thanks so much Kelly.
Great apartment! Very spacious. Conveniently located.
Would definitely stay again.
Some people travel for work. I work so I can fund my prodigious travel habit. :) I am an American living in the heart of London and loving life in this wonderful city. Before the UK, I lived 4 years in Japan and 4 years in China. I find living abroad to be the best way to travel - every day is a new adventure, and you still get to sleep in your own bed!
