Queens Park, Zone 2, West London
Our house is a 2 bedroom flat built in 1896 (Victorian). It has the original floorboards throughout and is tastefully decorated. Its a warm house, with central heating and rugs throughout. In our lounge we have all mod cons (cable TV, free wireless internet access etc), and a good sized kitchen with large kitchen table on which you can plan your days over fresh coffee!
Once you have discovered London, come home to our garden retreat. We have a good sized, private garden, which captures all day sun. When the sun goes down, light the BBQ if you like to eat outside!
Your room is a relatively small room - we would rather you knew this before booking. If you want a spacious room to lounge in, then we are not your perfect choice! However in this compact room, there is 1 bunk bed (ie, 2 single beds on top of each other).
THE LOCATION (QUEENS PARK)
Queens Park is central and convenient for exploring the best of London (parks, galleries, shops, gastro pubs and theatres!). We are located 5 minutes walk from Queens Park tube station, and its a 15 minute tube trip from Queens Park to Oxford Circus.
In addition to this, we are 10 minutes walk from Kensal Rise Overland station, which takes you directly to Richmond, Hampstead and Camden. There are also direct buses from our door to Marble Arch (15 minutes), Portabello (15 minutes) and Notting Hill (20 minutes).
More importantly, we are well served by some of London's finest pubs. In 10 minutes you can be enjoying a pint in "The Paradise", "The Regent", "The Salisbury" or "The Chamberlayne" - all of which are 5* pubs and must be visited. (website hidden) them for reviews, each has its own ambience - and all have great restaurants.
Besides being central, and well connected - Queens Park itself also provides a pleasant retreat from the hustle of the city.
We are a relaxed professional couple, who are well travelled and always planning the next trip!
I have no hesitation in recommending folks stay with Mat and Slavka - great hosts in a great location.
I liked it so much I'm back for my third time! The room is exactly as described (compact) but Mat and Slavka make you very welcome in the rest of the house and you won't regret booking here.
I booked Mat & Slavka's place for my colleague, and he gave me this review for them:
"Mat and Slavka are helpful, friendly and welcoming people that really allow you to feel at home. I would stay with them again anytime."
He's right, you know.
You couldn't ask for nicer hosts. Mat and Slavka were the perfect balance of friendly and let-you-get-on-with-your-own-thing and I had a wonderful two weeks with them. The bunk bed was surprisingly comfy and the location was great. You can't go wrong! I know where I want to stay next time I'm back this way...
It was my first time in London and what a comfortable and memorable stay it was! Mat & Slavka's apt is extremely stylish and comfy. I was very well taken care of - clean towels, sheets, a well stocked fridge and was even given an Oyster travel card. Their apt is located near a tube station and it was very convenient to get to town.
Mat & Slavka are every guest's dream host. Warm, hospitable and friendly; they provided me with everything and took care of all my needs. It is my pleasure and honour of knowing them and I am so happy to have found them as my host for this trip. I will definitely stay with them the next time I return to London and I highly recommend everyone to stay with Mat & Slavka for an amazing time!
I had a comfortable and enjoyable stay with Mat & Slavka, who were both incredibly kind and helpful during my month-long stay in London. They offered useful advice on how to get around, where to eat and always made me feel welcome in their home.
Our stay with Mat and Slavka was great. They were always very helpful to talk about how to get around the city and just all around great conversation. Mat was very helpful as he walked us down to a great little restaurant in the neighborhood. I would definitely stay again and would recommend to all. Thanks Mat and Slavka!
Esperienza più che positiva, Mat e Slavka sono molto amichevoli e ospitali, la casa è perfettamente arredata e la cucina permette ottimo svago se si vuole fare da mangiare.
Fermata del bus a pochi metri che porta direttamente in centro (il 6 passa 24h su 24).
Hallo, die Betten waren Ok, der Aufenthaltsraum ebensoo das Bad war sauber doch etwas veraltet insgesamt für unseren Bedarf ausreichend, denn wir waren im Prinzip nur zum schlafen da.
Mat & Slavka waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit !
Mat & Slavka were amazing hosts!! I really want to thank you for your kindness and making our stay so easy & treating us very kind.
Next time I come to London I would like to stay at your place again and I will recommend your home to my friends. Even our room was small but we had 2 separate bed which were very comfortable to sleep in and there was enough space for the luggage. Mat & Slavka provided us with 2 big clean towels, on top weve got delicious little breakfast, umbrellas and a sightseeing map, which made our 2,5 days sightseeing trip very special. Also the the bus station which brings your directly to Oxford street couldn't be closer, just few steps away from the door. Further few steps is underground station. By the end of our trip Mat spent so much time helping us to get to find directions online to get to the airport. That was a huge help, God bless you!!!
My recommendations is: Don't look for other places, go to Mat & Slavka :)
