About This Listing
Enjoy your own central-London pad in the sought-after area of Connaught Square. Situated in a classic-Georgian town house in a quiet garden square, the apartment has all the charms of a period property with the benefits of modern comforts, such as under-floor heating, wooden floors, high ceilings, flat-screen tv, Wi-fi, designer furniture and comfortable king-size bed.
This really is central London, you are minutes away from the open spaces of Hyde Park and the shopping, dining and theatre facilities of the West End. A ten minute walk takes you to Paddington Station, home to the Heathrow Express, while nearby Marble Arch underground station means you are a 20 minute tube ride to the financial district. Nearby is Connaught Village, with the famous artisan bakery Cocomaya, quirky shops and great restaurants.
The apartment consists of living/dining area (17'11 x 15'1), walk-in wetroom and a seperate bedroom (11'4 x 10'10). All linens are provided, including large, fluffy Egyptian cotton towels and 500 thread-count bed linen. A weekly maid service is included for those staying over a week. Wi-fi is provided within the cost.
I try to be as flexible as possible with checkouts. However, if another guest is arriving the same day as you are leaving, I will need the apartment back by 11am in order to prepare the flat. You are more than welcome to leave your luggage with me during the day if your train, plane or transport isn't leaving until later on in the day.
Rachel was very helpful during the booking process and on the day of our arrival. Rachel met us at the agreed time and had very kindly provided loan Travel / Oyster cards which although we didn't actually need we thought was a nice touch. In addition fresh flowers, chocolates and a diffuser in the bedroom. Rachel showed us around, pointed out local restaurants and bars. We travelled to London by rail and Rachel allowed us to keep our suitcases in the apartment until later on the day we checked out. The bed was very comfortable and the apartment had every amenity you would need including full oven, washing m/c and complete complement of kitchen equipment and utensils. Everything was in good condition and worked and we had no issues at all
The description on the listing was accurate and the location was excellent. Considering how close this is to Marble Arch / Edgeware Rd / Bayswater Rd it was very quiet.
Thank you very much Rachel. We would love to stay here again next time we come to London and hope it's available when we next visit the Capital
Rachel was a wonderful host- excellent communication before our arrival and during our stay. The flat is roomy and well-appointed. She walked us through the neighborhood to point out the nearest grocery stores and gave us tips on the best spots for coffee, baked treats, etc.
Rachel even gave us a tutorial on using Oyster Cards (she provided) for getting around town- in short, everything we needed, Rachel provided- and more!
A very convenient location- close enough to walk almost everywhere, plus buses, tube station and even a rental bicycle rack are all nearby. There's a wealth of middle eastern restaurants just around the corner. And honestly, we never waited more than 20 seconds for a taxi right at our door
We'd stay here again in a heartbeat!
We had a great stay at Rachel's apartment! It's near the bus stop and underground station. A few minutes walk will take you to a shopping street and Primark! We had to cancel our last day and Rachel's really kind to understand our situation. The apartment is really huge and clean. The bed is really comfy. The apartment is in a quiet neighborhood and safe to walk back to even at night. Thank you Rachel!
Rachel was a great host and we were very satisfied at our stay. The affordable very clean and newly renovated lower ground level apartment was quite good enough for enjoying London and the location was perfect. We loved it, and definitely wants to get back next time when it's available. Thank you, Rachel!!
Both Rachel and the apartment are fantastic. She met us upon our arrival and made us feel welcome. The apartment is exactly as pictured, and was clean and comfortable. The location cant be beat, being a block from Marble Arch tube station and Hyde Park, and a ten minute walk from Paddington Station. There are plenty of restaurants and markets within walking distance, along with lots of shopping on Bond and Oxford Streets. Thank you, Rachel, for your hospitality and letting us stay at this fantastic apartment.
Rachel was a perfect host! She was also very nice is a huge bonus :) Also Andrea who we met !
Let us leave the bag when we arrived in the morning, and during the day on the day of departure! In other words - very flexible!
Towels, soap, toilet paper, everything was in the apartment!
Firstly it was so easy to get to Rachel's. We took the train from the airport. And then a taxi. Rachel met us - she was friendly, gracious and helpful. The place was great! A lot of unexpected space, kitchen well equipped with crockery etc plus breakfast things. And CLEAN!!!i Fantastic easy walk to Hyde Park and shopping with marble arch underground five mins away. Lovely patisseries and coffee shops. Our first airbnb on this trip and very impressed. Highly recommended
