Ideal for exploring London, the Studio has everything expected of a self-contained flat. And we live next door if help is needed.
In a Central but quiet area, we're very close to trains, buses, and the Underground, and a short walk from Hyde Park.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Studio. Guests have exclusive use of the Studio with its own private kitchen and bathroom. The Studio is equipped with a washer/drier, dishwasher, combination oven (grill/convection/ microwave), iron, laptop safe. Shared use of the patio.
Guests can cook for themselves, or make use of the complementary breakfast supplies provided daily.
We are located a short walk from Paddington Station, which is the destination for the Heathrow Express & Connect services from Heathrow Airport. The Express service takes just 15 from Heathrow.
Hyde Park/Kensington Gardens are a 5 minute walk. Oxford Street and the West End a few (bus or Underground) stops away. There are 4 underground lines within 8 minutes walk, as well as Paddington Mainline. Waitrose supermarket is just five minutes away.
Bayswater is well served by shops selling useful things – there are many banks, bureaux de change and cash machines on Queensway, as is the Post Office, and Boots the Chemist (open until midnight).
Whiteley’s Centre (Queensway) is the local shopping emporium, and contains shops such as Marks & Spencer, Zara, H&M, Gap, and The Body Shop. Waitrose is the best local supermarket on Porchester Rd and is open until 9pm each evening except Sundays when it closes at 5pm.
Westbourne Grove has more interesting shopping options and as the Grove reaches Notting Hill the shops become more exclusive and expensive. Westbourne Grove is also the route to Portobello Rd - famous for its weekend antique market.
Local recommended eateries within walking distance include Patisserie Valerie (Viennese style café on Queensway), The Frontline (modern British on Norfolk Place). Cafe Anglais in Whitleys is a real treat. There are many Chinese restaurants on Queensway (near Queensway station) and The Royal China is famous for its Dim Sum. Pizza East is on Portobello Rd is also very good but is a bus ride away or a 25 min walk.
There are many other restaurants locally including many chains including McDonald’s, Burger King, Pret a Manger and Bella Italia. There are also several very reasonable Indian restaurants.
Local pubs include The Porchester (corner of Bishops Bridge Rd and Porchester Rd), The Redan (Queensway) and The Albert (Queensway). Most pubs serve food at lunchtimes and in the evenings.
Guests have full (and exclusive) access to the Studio and its amenities, as well as the shared outside Patio.
Interaction with Guests
We are happy to supply information about public transport and getting to places of interest etc. Our flat adjoins the Studio, so we are usually on hand if needed. But mostly we leave guests to get on with their holiday.
We love living in Bayswater because it's a quiet residential neighbourhood, is very close to Hyde Park, and access to the West End is easy. Transport links to other places are great too.
We are an eight minute walk from Paddington Station which is fifteen minutes from Heathrow Airport via the Express service. Paddington also serves Oxford, Bath, and the west of England.
The Underground service is great because we are within ten minutes walk of five different lines. We are also surrounded by buses that regularly pass within a few minutes walk, including the night bus service.
No smoking inside the Studio.
Our neighbourhood is a quiet residential area and guests are asked to respect that.
The Studio is located at basement level down some steps from the street. It is therefore not wheelchair accessible.
I stayed in Eamon and Tomas's lovely studio for two nights and I felt so comfortable and cared for thanks to the welcoming, kind hosts. They helped me all the way from changing reservation online before arrival to every detail needed during the stay (e.g. heating, kitchen, washing machine, luggage storage, etc.).
The house was just as pictured in the information page and equipped with everything described and explained. The area was quiet and within easy walking distance to Paddington station or bus stops. The petit garden at the doorstep and shared with the hosts made it more like home, with family.
I am sorry I stayed too short. I wish I could stay here again when I go back to London if they allow me. Thank you very much, Eamon and Tomas. :)
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Eamon & Tomas! The apartment was lovely and just as described. E&T were extremely welcoming and very diligent hosts. They provided us with breakfast every morning which was great. The apartment is nicely decorated and was very warm & cosy to escape the winter chill. Thank you so much for hosting us!
Situated on a quiet residential street, but just blocks from three tube stations, one train station, numerous stores and restaurants, the studio is the perfect location to explore London. The very clean, carefully arranged studio meets every need of a traveler. Eamon & Tomas are great hosts - warm, knowledgeable, and very kind. I would not hesitate to book the studio for any future trips to London.
We had a fabulous stay at Eamon and Tomas's studio flat. They made us feel so welcome and it was so home-y with everything we needed. The area is great and only a short stroll to the tube and the main street with shops and every cuisine you could think off. We would definitely stay here again, by far our best air bnb experience yet.
Eamon und Tomas waren tolle Gastgeber: Immer aufmerksam, höflich und freundlich. Die Wohnung ist ideal für einen wunderbaren London Reise für zwei Personen: Es hat eine gute Größe, eine komfortable Ausstattung und liegt sehr zentral in unmittelbarer Nähe zu Notting Hill. Weiterhin ist das Apartment nur wenige Gehminuten von öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln, Supermärkten, Bars und Restaurants entfernt. Alles in allem hatten wir ein rundum gelungenes Wochenende in London und das lag nicht zuletzt auch an unseren großartigen Gastgebern.
A wonderful oasis from which to explore all that London has to offer. Splendid hospitality from Eamon & Tomas. The studio was very well appointed and met and exceeded all our needs and expectations for our short stay. Its a quiet residential location within easy reach of tubes and buses. A great place to stay and wholeheartedly recommended.
Dear Eamon & Tomás, you've truly created a beautiful and cozy little appartment that became our home away from home for a few days. Everything is as the pictures describe. The hosts couldn't have been any more nicer and attentive. We LOVED it and hope to stay again soon.
