The Space

A double bedroom (and annexe) with own shower room/lavatory (not en suite) in quiet shared basement flat in a garden square with professional owner in Central London. Owner is generally away each weekend (Friday to Sunday) and some evenings midweek. This makes checking in on a Saturday problematic.

In an annexe to the double bedroom, divided by a curtain, is a full size bunk bed suitable for children or an adult seeking some privacy. I am afraid that I only accept children over 10 years old and a maximum of 3 guests at any one time.

Minimum stay of 3 nights or I will need to charge a £10 premium per night per person.

Part of the Notting Hill general area, a safe area with lots of shopping, restaurants and cool cafes.The location is extremely well connected for public transport as 2 tube stations (Bayswater and Queensway) are within a 5 minute walk from the property and will easily connect you to the rest of London. Paddington Station is also nearby (where the Heathrow Express is based) and there are plenty of bus routes.

This is the perfect location to be in when visiting London, as Bayswater itself is busy and Notting Hill and Paddington are just a short distance away. Nearby there are lots of great restaurants, shops and cinemas. Whiteley's Shopping Centre is a 3 minute walk, the huge Westfield Mall is 2 stops away on the tube or a short bus ride, and Oxford Street is 3 stops away. Everything you will want to see and need is on your doorstep. Also, just a short walk away (about 5 minutes) you will find Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park which is great place to relax and enjoy a sunny day.

Cereals, tea and coffee, linen, towels,some toiletries and the use of a hair drier are all included. The facilities include kitchen, TV, etc. I do have wifi and there are lots of pubs and bars nearly with free wifi and internet cafes too. Great security.

Check in is quite flexible, although, as I work, I would prefer either lunchtime or after 5.30 pm. and check ins on a Friday need to be by 2pm. Otherwise I am pretty flexible and are subject to me being able to leave the office. Please let me know what check in time you would like when you contact me. There is a locked cupboard outside the apartment if you would like to leave your bags and head off into town before checking in. Check out is not a problem - just put the keys through the door as you leave.

Please get in touch if you have any questions!

  • We stayed at Adam's apartment for 6 nights. Adam has a great apartment in a very convenient location. He was a wonderful host and made us welcome. Adam gave us useful information about local facilities and eating places. We would certainly stay there again.

  • Adam is a wonderful host and his apartment is well located. We arrived earlier than planned but it was no problem and Adam let us right in. Our beds were comfortable, the area clean and the bathroom was updated with a heated towel bar and a shower with several spray options! Adam had breakfast items for our use and even went out to get us multigrain bread. We rarely saw him as he was gone on the weekend and every morning he was out early, before we were up. When he was in he stayed in his own area, so we essentially had the whole living room/kitchen to ourselves. I would highly recommend this apartment and our host Adam!

  • Good location

  • Nous avons passé 4 jours dans l'appartement d'Adam en mai 2014, et nous pouvons que le recommander !

    L'appartement est vraiment bien situé, tout près de Notting Hill et de Hyde Park. Le quartier est super safe, très agréable à vivre et très joli ! De nombreux arrêts de bus sont dispersés tout autour, et le métro est à 5 minutes à pied seulement.

    Nous n'avons vu Adam que lorsque nous sommes arrivés, il nous a donné les clés puis nous a laissé son appartement entier pour tout notre séjour. L'appartement en lui-même est largement assez grand pour 2 ou pour 2 adultes et 2 enfants. Adam nous a laissé libre accès à l'ensemble de toutes les commodités : réfrigérateur, micro-ondes, four, plaques, télé, wifi, machine à café, et nous a même laissé de quoi nous faire des petits- déjeuners.

    En bref, si vous cherchez une chambre à un prix plus que raisonnable en plein coeur de Londres, vous ne serez pas sécu par celle d'Adam. Et avec un peu de chance, vous aurez l'appartement entier pour vous (même si Adam est très sympathique et que rester avec lui sera surement un plaisir pour vous et en apprendre plus sur la vie londonienne).


    Adam has been an amazing host. He gave us the keys when we arrived, and then we had the entire apartment for our whole stay. He gave us many good advices about London, and about many things to do in the city.

    The apartment is in a super quiet and safe area, everything is close enough, and there are many bus stops near the flat. We couldn't have asked more for our stay. The apartment itself is spacious, very clean and comfy. We loved our stay there.

    If you are looking for an affordable place to crash in London, my girlfriend and I highly recommend Adam's room for you. You won't be disappointed !

  • We had a lovely and uncomplicated 7 day stay in the apartment. Adam was a wonderful host and was very gracious with sharing his apartment with us. The location is extremely central and safe, with 2 tube stations within close walking distance, plus lots of shops/restaurants nearby as well. I would definitely book with Adam again in the future.

  • Adam has a great home. He is very gracious and generous with it. Not only were the beds super comfortable, the living area was clean, very well and beautifully furnished and had all the mod cons to enable you to properly relax after a long day of shopping.

    The location is excellent too. Not far from 2 central tube stations and a very short walking distance to Hyde Park and Notting Hill/Portobello Market. The area is full of restaurants, from good old fashioned London pubs offering hearty English grub, Moroccon, Portuguese and Ghanaian food stalls, to more trendier food establishments. If you're a food lover, love shopping for trendy clothes and knick-knacks, I suggest you stay at this flat. The weather was also so nice when we were there,that we were able to walk virtually anywhere from Adam's flat; Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben......

    I would definitely recommend Adam and his home to anyone wanting a London escape.

  • We had a great stay at Adam's! He's a kind and helpful host; even though he was out during the weekend we stayed at his place he was very kind to reply to all my e-mails within minutes.
    His appartment is cozy, well-equipped and clean, we cannot complain about anything! And for the ones who do cook, you'll love the kitchen area, it's so tidy and well supplied.
    The appartment is well located, there are plenty of restaurants, bars, supermarkets and a beautiful park at walking distance.
    Whenever back in London, we'll definitely choose his place again!
