Nice and comfortable home and convenient location. Good size of unit for the stay this time, by six of us.
We found many restaurants near the place serve nice food,,, that's what we enjoyed unexpectedly.
El departamento es excelente. Muy cómodo. el barrio es hermoso. El jardín privado también. tiene los subtes a una cuadra. Hyde Park a dos cuadras. Para una familia es muy recoendable. Está bien equipado para cocinar básico.
Das Quartier war für uns 6 Personen perfekt geeignet. Die Lage ist sehr günstig. Danke für das herzliche Willkommen (auch an Katie) und den Begrüßungskorb. Wir kommen gern wieder.
Our stay at Robert's flat absolutely contributed to making our summer vacation one of the best family vacations ever! This was our first experience with staying in a flat instead of a hotel for a vacation and the ability to come back to a spacious place after a busy day of sight seeing where we could all just relax was incredible! So much less stress than a hotel! Robert was wonderful; he met my husband way before the regular checkin time to accommodate our early landing and was very attentive to any comments/questions/requests that we had. The location of the flat cannot be beat; it's close enough to streets lined with restaurants/ shops/public transportation but removed from all of the noise and congestion of the city. There was certainly no need to rent a car at this location! Thank you for the wonderful accommodations, Robert!
Many thanks Robert (and Katie) for your hospitality in making our stay in Bayswater so welcoming and valued.
The welcome snacks and breakfast goodies as well as fresh fruit were certainly appreciated upon arrival.
The cleanliness of your flat as well as general location, access to the Tube stations and other amenities along Queensway were valued and cherished by myself and my family during our stay
We would certainly consider your flat upon our return to London soon.
Kind regards from the Stephen family (Melbourne Australia)
The host canceled this reservation 72 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Our week long London family experience (2 grandparents, 2 adult children, and 5 year old granddaughter) was excellent in no small part due to Robert's flat. His quick response to email inquiries from initial booking to actual arrival 5 months later was consistent and appreciated. The verbal and pictorial descriptions of the flat are very accurate. The setup is great for a multi-generational family with two bedrooms and bath at the back of the flat, another bedroom with its own bath in another section, and then the generous sized living area and kitchen connected at the front of the flat. This works especially well when individuals go to bed or get up at different times.
The location is ideal for proximity to historical areas (10 minute walk to Kensington Palace and a fabulous playground for kids), restaurants of all variety, shops, and bus/tube service. The benefit of being so close to two tube stops is that each serves a different underground line, so if one is closed for service the other is available (which happened to us but did not disrupt our travel needs). The private park across the street is beautiful and tranquil, and a great outlet for youngsters to let off steam.
This was our first experience with Airbnb and it was terrific. We will definitely use the service in our future travels. And if we return to London, we would enthusiastically seek to again enjoy Robert's hospitality.
About the Host, Robert
I am an Australian living in London. I've been here for 15 years now so I know what it's like to come and visit and want to make sure that everything goes just right. I've travelled extensively worldwide and we enjoy meeting people from all over - which is the attraction on London.
My wife and I will do our best to host you during your stay and feel free to contact us. We've tried to equip the apartment with the things you might need when abroad.
