***LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION ***
This Lovely quaint studio in the heart of everything that matters is in a Victorian Heritage building with an opulent entrance with a real British presence, based in Queensway.
Its a great place for diverse activities
The handsome early 19th-century stuccoed buildings in the area give a glimpse of its fashionable past.
With leafy, elegant roads nearby it epitomises the diversity and charm of Bayswater. This isn’t a homogenised tourist trap it’s a living, breathing, multicultural community.
With a rich history and a multitude of restaurants and things to do, the area is an excellent choice for a visit to London.
The studio is located on the ground floor and sleeps four. One real bed and one sofa bed.
The studio has just been redecorated and is in stunning condition.
It comprises of a lounge with a fully equipped kitchen with all modern conveniences including cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine, etc.
There is also a separate bathroom with a bath/shower.
We provide Linens and towels and a light breakfast of tea coffee and cereals.
There is also a TV with free view.
The transport is incredibly great with both Bayswater and Queensway Underground a short walk away and numerous bus routes going in all directions at your doorstep.
The culturally diverse Bayswater is one of London's most architecturally traditional areas.
With a great expanse of Hyde Park's landscaped English parkland almost on your doorstep.
Edgware Road is London's Arab high street, and in summer the air is rich with the scents of Okacbasi barbecues and full of the sounds of Middle Eastern and North African music.
Between Queensway and Bayswater Underground Stations is the Queens Ice Rink, careful it’s easy to miss with stairs going down into the main part of the building. The bunch of skittles at the top of the stairs is a clue. The main attraction here is the 10 pin bowling alley and the ice rink
Whiteley's, a century-old department store that was the closest thing London has to a US-style mall prior to the opening of Westfield
Every place is at your doorstep. Bayswater , Harrods, Knightsbridge, Hyde Park, Natural History, Science and V&A Museums, Royal Albert Hall. I could carry on and on and on.
Splendid Walks Through Kensington Gardens
The location could hardly be bettered, with wonderful walks, monuments and restaurants.
The city’s most popular attractions are within easy reach.
Hyde Park, The Serpentine boating lake and the Diana Princess of Wales’ Memorial Playground just beyond. The kids can run wild while you relax with a picnic or a good book.
Holland Park is considered by many to be the most romantic park in London.
Music and Museums
The celebrated Royal Albert Hall, with its fabulous schedule of concerts and shows, is only a short walk.
The Victoria & Albert Museum, the world’s greatest museum of art and design, is a further ten minutes easy stroll.
Next door to the V&A you’ll find two favourite family attractions –
The Science Museum and Natural History Museum.
Two Royal Palaces
Lovers of Royalty adore Kensington Palace, the former residence of Queen Victoria and more recently Diana, Princess of Wales.
Kensington Palace is a working Royal Residence and has a significant place in the history of London.
Buckingham Palace the Queens residence is just a short journey away.
At the heart of London’s best shopping districts
The area is paradise for shoppers, with Knightsbridge, Harrods Bayswater and Oxford Street only a short distance away.
Notting Hill is not too far away with a lovely gentle stroll through Kensington Park and into Portobello Road Market where you can search for bargains of all kinds especially antiques.
To the north-west lies the Westfield shopping centre with over 265 retailers from luxury designers to high street labels.
Bayswater has always been one of the most ethnically diverse London neighborhoods. As a result it boosts a fusion of reasonably priced international cuisine. Restaurants, all perfectly placed for the travellers staying nearby.
No shortage of nightlife
London’s legendary West End is easy to reach by tube - you are only minutes from vibrant theatreland –
Piccadilly Circus, Shaftesbury Avenue, Leicester Square and the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.
Dive into the warren of narrow streets that criss-cross Soho and you’ll find endless old pubs, lively bars and countless restaurants.
Close to the capital’s biggest attractions.
A few minutes in a cab or a short tube ride away and you’re in the heart of Whitehall, Big Ben,

This is a place what we recommend to stay in London, as we have been in several places than this was the best where we have been. I recommend this place: clean, quiet, good beds and easy to find, also very near to everything.
This place is maximum for 4 people, not more and this place is best for friends trip or 2 adult and 2 children, but not for 2 couples as apartment is very small and it is not nice to be in the same room :) Anyway this is a very nice and good place to stay when you are in London. We will be back !!
Superkleines Studio im Kellergeschoss an sehr ruhiger und trotzdem zentraler Lage in unmittelbarer Nähe des Hyde Park. Zu dritt tip top, mit kleinen Kindern aufgrund der beengenden Platzverhältnisse nicht empfehlbar.Küchenzeile (verständlicherweise) nur dürftig ausgestattet, kochen ging jedoch tip top. Sehr sauber. Wir würden dieses Studio bei einem nächsten Aufenthalt wieder buchen.
The place is perfect! Extremely clean and located in a beautiful and practical street. There are metro and bus stations nearby. We did not see Carrie, but she provided all the instructions we could possibly need. Great experience!!
Baywater ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt, um London zu erkunden. Lebendiger, liebenswerter Stadtteil. Das Appartement liegt in einer ruhigen und schönen Straße und dennoch sehr zentral. Die Wohnung ist wirklich sehr klein. Wir waren zu viert und das war eine echte Herausforderung.... wir haben es gut hin bekommen. Man muss sich sehr mögen... weil es auch nur zwei Übergröße Bettdecken gibt... für vier Leute.
Die Dusche hat ihre Macken, lässt sich schwer abstellen.
Insgesamt jedoch, hat es uns in dem Appartement gefallen, vorallem wegen der Lage.
Geh ins Artcafe' zum Frühstück und abends zu Bella Italia, Queensway. Ist beides zu empfehlen.
Wenn wir Fragen an Carrie hatten, haben wir diese per Mail sofort beantwortet bekommen.
London ist eine berauschend schöne Stadt!!!!
Viel Spaß! Katrin, Uwe, Pauline und Tassja (16/16/52/54)
La estadía fue muy buena, el apartamento es muy bonito y está en una excelente ubicación. El apartamento es muy cómodo y práctico y Carrie ha sido una muy buena anfitriona, cada vez que necesitamos de ella nos solucionó todo lo que necesitábamos. Volveríamos sin dudarlo.
The place is well located and there are shops and restaurants nearby. The apartment is very small, I was with my husband and two kids so it was tight! The place was clean and ready when we arrived and all the instructions I recieved were spot on! The sofa bed was not ready and we had trouble turning the sofa into a bed. The bed spreads are very worn out and we were short on them for the sofa bed and no pillows. Carrie was very kind everytime we were in touch and tried her best on our demands.
The location for this studio is a real plus. Only a two minute walk to Hyde Park and the same to two tube stations and the bus stop. Central London is about a 15 minute bus ride.
The studio is small although for two people is adequate as you should be spending most of the time out of the apartment. More than this would be a real struggle. In saying that its fine to lay back in bed and watch TV to rest the legs.
The studio is fitted out quite well although the cutlery seemed a little sparse and there was no iron board which we could find. Had to use the fold out table which was a little tricky.
The bathroom shower head had come away from the wall so there was no way to hang it while showering which was also tricky. I had read some reviews about the hot water not working although while it did work we could not put on any cold water due to the hot not heating up enough. Didn't worry me but my wife wasn't happy.
All in all it was a nice stay in a nice apartment, The issues i have raised are only trivial and I'm sure Carrie will sort them out.
As for our host Carrie, well we didn't meet her although I was not expecting to and she did reply to all my emails and there were no hiccups. My only real complaint was that it didn't snow while in London. A very disappointing thing for an Aussie boy.
I would actually rate this as a 3 1/2 star if i could.
The apartment is very well located, 5mn from Hyde Park and from 2 different underground stations. It is small but clean and equipped with everything you need for your stay.
The communication with the host was OK, you won't get to meet her but she organised thing perfectly so you get easily your way and the keys to the apartment.
El apartamento esta muy bien situado, es pequeño pero agradable y esta bien acondicionado. El sistema de recogida de llaves es muy util si tu vuelo llega tarde, y la anfitriona contesta siempre rapidamente a tus consultas.
wij waren 6 dagen in London.
De ligging is prima. Het appartement is niet ideaal voor 2 volwassenen en 2 kinderen het is aan de kleine kant en je verblijft in 1 ruimte.
verder is het wel netjes en je hebt gelegenheid om te koken en een ligbad.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
