Our house is perfectly located for getting to know central London and its sights. The excellent transport links also make our house ideal if you are working in London short-term e.g. as an actor, artist, academic or project-worker.
We live in zone 1 on a residential street in the heart of Paddington, close to the famous St Mary’s Hospital where penicillin was discovered. The public transport connections are fantastic, with central London sights such as Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square only 15 minutes away by tube. It’s a 7 minute walk to Hyde Park, a 15 minute walk to Marble Arch at the start of Oxford Street and a short trip to Portobello Market in Notting Hill by bus or tube. There are lots of restaurants and traditional pubs in the area. The newly developed Paddington Basin is a 5 minute walk away and has lovely places to eat by the canal just south of Little Venice.
We are renting a double room with a kingsized bed that is on the first floor of our house. It has a bathroom next to it, with bath and shower attachment. The bathroom is shared.
We have a lovely kitchen, which you can share and we’ll provide tea, coffee, cereal and bread/toast. You are also welcome to use our living room.
We also have wireless internet/internet access, which is included in the price.
For an additional person after the first it costs an additional £30 per night per person.
The hosts were extremely friendly (with dinner offers), helpful (with local travel tips and transit cards), and accommodating. I'd stay here again anytime.
Efficient, well located and value for money...
Jerry's a good host: informative without being intrusive...
My experience with Julia and her partner was great. The room was perfect and the apartment was located in a very convenient spot -- about a 5 minute walk to Paddington tube station. Julia offered me tea on several occasions. Though my interactions were limited, the time I did spend with Julia and Jerry was very nice. They both had great suggestions about how to spend my time in London and they were both very easy to talk to. Jerry provided me with an Oyster card and a decent map of London. The only critique I have is that they should fix the shower. This accommodation was modest, but perfect for the price.
Just five minutes to Paddinton station by foot. The hosts are very kind. Also, the room is bright and clean. I think I will live here next time.
Now there are good airbnb hosts, great ones, and then there is Jules and Jerry. These guys are the most! They are really cool and helpfull and it's nice and fun to be around them. Also neighbourhood is beautiful and the room even nicer than what it looks like in the pics. Stay here if you go to London!
Very welcoming and comfortable. Nice location. Great conversation with Julia and Gerry/Jerry and they made me feel like a guest in their home, I'd definitely recommend it.
Stayed here for the second time.. Hopefully it won't be the last! I like everything about this place. Most importantly, the hosts are some of the nicest people I've ever met so I definitely recommend staying here.

We're a fun couple who love living in London and having people to stay. We're passionate about the city and its history, in fact we're just setting up our own walking tours. We love cooking and making great cakes. Our current favourite is banana and chocolate cake but the yorkshire scones are not far behind. We also like writing songs, the quiz at our local and lovely pub, and watching films. We're very easy going and relaxed when hosting.
