You cannot find a better location to stay in London!
Mayfair is one of the oldest and most exclusive parts of London. Every amenity you could possibly want is within walking distance and every major site in London is either nearby or within very easy access. The restaurants and cafes of historic Shepherd's Market are around the corner and the world-renowned shopping and restaurants of Bond Street and Mount Street are a 5 minute walk away as are Oxford Street and Knightsbridge. Hyde Park and Green Park are right across the street, Buckingham Palace a 4 minute walk, Big Ben, Parliament and the London Eye another minute or so. The bars and restaurants of Soho and all the great stage shows in Theatreland are also less than 10 minutes away.
Right on the doorstep are Green Park and Hyde Park Corner tubes stations and more buses than you can count on Park Lane and Piccadilly to take you in every direction. The Heathrow Express at Paddington is less than 10 minutes away or the Piccadilly line from Heathrow comes almost to the front door. The Gatwick Express from Victoria station is approximately 5 minutes away. This is the ultimate location for anyone visiting London.

My first experience of airbnb and unfortunately I had to call off at the last minute. But Francine had been responsive and helpful in the preparation and I was just sorry I did not get to stay.
Since I didn't get to stay I really can't rate the room (which will be what others will want to understand from the scoring) but the site forces a rating even so - hence the "average" score to remain neutral
Very welcoming, room as described. For my 1st airbnb the standard has been set.
I recently stayed in Francine's room for one night and I could describe my experience in one word: OASIS :)
The room was clean and quiet, furnished with a perfect bed (not too soft and not too hard), I slept better than at home! Francine thought of all the little things that made my stay very comfortable, including bottled water on the bedside table, unique collection of London guidebooks and of course, password for the internet. The bathroom is conveniently situated right next to the room and just like the photos, is luxurious, warm, and everything works fine.
Francine's apartment is also perfectly located at the heart of London, within walking distance of all the major sites.
Francine - thank you for sharing your home :) Next time in London, your place is my choice of accommodation. Cheers! Jana
For a first timer on Airbnb the experience was all I could have hoped for. Francine was friendly and helpful during the booking process and gave simple, clear instructions for finding the apartment. It's an easy and short bus journey from Paddington as well as being close to the tube and many other bus routes.
The location is central for shops, art galleries, theatre and I walked almost everywhere. The apartment is super clean and luxurious. With a large, comfortable bed and own bathroom what more could you want! The provision of milk for tea and coffee and the other extras thoughtfully provided all made for a really enjoyable stay.
Thank you Francine!
Great communications. My partner was welcomed on arrival to Francine's spacious apartment. Bed is super comfy, you'll find it hard to get up, yet the central location will draw you out to explore the city at some point! Definitely recommend. Well kept apartment with everything you need for a break in the city. Clean, comfortable and 'fabulous' - as described. Thank you Francine.
A delightful room in a lovely part of London. Both bedroom and bathroom very luxurious - felt like a smart hotel suite! Very highly recommended.
I have really appreciated my stay in Francine' house. I have not the chance to meet Francine,who was not there, but there was somebody in time when I arrive to show me the flat and room.
All was perfect. The house is perfect, the bedroom is very nice, large .
private bathroom with all what is needed included. Really nice .
The emplacement was 10 mn of my work area , then absolutely perfect.
I will highly recommend this host and I will definitely come back here if I come back to London.

I'm a displaced American who has lived in Europe for decades.
I'm easy going, read a lot, enjoy movies, the theatre, listening to music and have developed a big interest in football by default thanks to my son. Love to cook and entertain and like having a house full of people but will respect your privacy too.
Have travelled a lot throughout the US, Europe and parts of the Middle East but not as much as I want. Still want to check out Southeast Asia and parts of Africa and hope to do that soon.
