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.

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 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!

Adam was a great host! He waited patiently for our arrival and made us feel right at home from the get go. I traveled with my 2 adult children and had enough space to settle in and spread out with our luggage. Comfy beds and sofa. Fabulous Shower and large white bath towels. Apartment is located in a cental area, though was very quiet with a private garden in the center. Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Notting Hill, were walking distance. Around the corner were hand full of great restaurants and cafes. We had a Wonderful stay!

This was the perfect location for my daughter and me, the underground station was five minutes walk away and using this we were able to travel to all the areas that tourists love to visit. The neighborhood gave wonderful access to local shops and restaurants and the apartment was exactly as pictured. The beds were so comfortable which is not always the case when traveling, and the whole apartment was ideal for our needs. Adam was out of town four out of the six nights we stayed, but made sure to leave us information on websites that we would find useful. All in all a great experience, and we hope one day to return

Before we arrived in London we knew it would be fine to leave our luggage in the secure cupboard just outside Adam's apartment. This is a wonderful facility, especially if you have a heavy case to carry around. As it happened, Adam was earlier home than we had thought so we were able to get ourselves settled in straightaway. Adam was very welcoming and showed us around and told us all the things we needed to know and how everything worked. He left us cereal, milk, coffee, tea, bread, butter and preserves. Adam's apartment was just perfect. Clean, comfortable, very homely and attractive. He pointed out a little damp problem around some of the skirting boards which had occurred when work had been undertaken in the apartment but this didn't affect our stay at all. We were very cosy and warm. The situation was ideal for getting around. We enjoyed Portobello Market on the Saturday morning - a short walk away. There are lots of nice shops and eating places in the area. At night we slept well and found it to be so, so quiet which we appreciated very much. My daughter who lives in Clapham South stayed over a night with us and couldn't believe the quietness of the apartment - she normally has to wear earplugs! All in all we had a very enjoyable stay at 59b Kensington Square Gardens and would certainly return.

Staying at Adam's place was great. It is a beautifully furnished flat in a really nice area. Adam left just after I arrived, but as far as I can say he is very friendly and helpful. He explained everything (heating, kitchen facilities, wifi,...) and also texted me during our stay to ask if we are fine. The flat is amazing, we felt so comfortable and liked it a lot. You have easy access to the underground and also taking a taxi is just around 15 pounds from the city centre. London is a great city anyway but having such a awesome accommodation made our trip even better.

Adam was a great host. He made us feel welcome right away, gave us a tour, and hints at making the most of London. He pointed us in the direction of some restaurants that were the highlight of our London experience. The place was just as described. The beds were nice and the private bathroom was wonderful. We didn't see Adam much throughout the week as he was gone early in the AM and kept to himself at night. He was a perfect host since he was there when we needed him, but gave us privacy when we desired. The location was close to everything including several nearby tube stations. It was easy to navigate London from this location. We would highly recommend a stay at Adams place.
