About this listing
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.
From Dec 17, 2015 - Jan 17, 2016 the minimum stay is 7 nights.
It was fantastic experience staying in Eamon&Tomas's studio for two nights. Before we arrived, Eamon contacted us a few times and provided all the useful information about visiting London and how to travel to their apartment including maps, recommended route, instruction about London Pass, etc. Eamon was very hospitable to receive us even though we got there very late in the night. The studio was perfect, even beyond our expectation. It is very well decorated, clean and tidy with very comfortable bed, all the facilities in the kitchen and bathroom. Breakfast including fresh fruit, bread, eggs, milk, soybean milk and yogurt was well prepared everyday. We really enjoyed the two-night stay there and Eamon was a very helpful and superb host. This is the best B&B I've ever stayed around the world and I would highly recommend to any visitors to London to stay there. It will add more good memories to your London trip.
This studio has it all - location, service and amenities. We were in London for Wimbledon and didn't even realize the convenience of the location until we arrived. Hosts were so generous and attentive. The breakfast supplied as well as the washer/dryer were icing on the cake. This is a very sweet neighborhood. We were there on the "hottest day of the summer" and the apartment remained cool and comfortable. Very comfy bed.
Very convenient to excellent restaurants and two metro stations that took us everywhere!
We have just spent a week staying in Eamon & Tomas's charming basement studio apartment. It has everything required for a comfortable stay in London. The location is so convenient to everything with several tube stations within easy walking distance. Hyde Park is only a short walk away. Every day fresh supplies for breakfast including fruit were supplied. Eamon & Tomas are wonderful hosts who enhanced our stay in London and we would definitely recommend their apartment.
Both Eamon and Tomas made us feel very welcome.
The property is even better than the description.
The neighbourhood is as expected, in very easy walking distance of many, many shops; several tubes; buses and taxis.
A smashing little home-from-home.
The hosts, Eamon and Tomas were more than welcoming and we immeditely felt at ease and comfortable. They provided us with fresh fruit and breads daily. The flat itself was very clean and was furnished with more than the basic essentials. The neighborhood was well kept and we felt very safe.
Cuando decidimos reservar el studio teníamos la sensación de que era la forma ideal para vivir nuestra primera estada en Londres. Ahora estamos seguros de que es la opción para nuestra vuelta. Nos sentimos como en nuestra casa con dos maravillosos vecinos dispuestos a atender cualquier requerimiento. El studio es fantástico por su equipamiento y exquisito buen gusto. El desayuno es perfecto por su abundancia y frescura. La zona es elegante y tranquila (un paseo en sí misma) con acceso a muchos medios de comunicación y a minutos del Hyde Park.
Gracias Eamon y Tomás por su hospitalidad, calidez y discreción.
What a wonderful place to stay! The studio is well equipped with the necessities as well as nice small touches that make it feel like home as well as a very comfortable bed. (Just a short flight of stairs to descend to enter this studio.) A Lovely, quiet location within walking distance to Paddington Station, tube stations and bus lines. The hosts are wonderful, too, providing us with everything from plenty of breakfast foods to tourist tips to friendly chats. Couldn't ask for more! We would certainly stay here again.
