About this listing
Great apartment in Central London location with easy access to all parts of town. The apartment is in a quiet square but in a busy area with lots of shops and restaurants a short walk away and is very close to public transport links.
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 from Thursday night until Sunday so during these times you will usually have exclusive use of the apartment. This makes checking in on a Friday or 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 before 9.30 am, lunchtime or after 5.30 pm, otherwise I am pretty flexible, 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!
Bedroom, sole use of shower room/toilet and shared access to sitting room where there is a TV and kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
I am at the apartment sometimes in the evening but generally not between Thursday evening and Sunday evening.
The area is very central but the apartment is in a square which is quiet and has a very tranquil air. The Bayswater and Notting Hill area has lots of interesting things to do - shopping, sightseeing and super restaurants too.
Lots of busses and 2 tube stations to quickly get you around town. A 15 minute walk (and a faster bus ride or taxi) from Paddington train station too, with fast links to London Heathrow Airport and trains to the West of London.
No smoking either inside or immediately outside the apartment, otherwise it is pretty easy going!
