Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Primrose Hill - Prince Albert Road II
3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home just across the road from London Zoo
No fixed abode
At the foot of Primrose Hill, a little way from London Zoo, sits Prince Albert Road II. But it doesn’t do to be tied down. This light, learned home goes where the mood takes it: the artwork wanders from Monroe to Martini, the bookshelves start with yoga retreats and end with Lonely Planets, while the furniture alternates from the traditional to the contemporary. And if you too are impatient to be up and away, there’s no better starting point: Camden is one way, St John’s Wood is the other, and Regent’s Park is in between.
One for the road
A pair of free spirits, your hosts are shortly to swap the Balearic Sea for the Californian sun. She’s a yoga instructor, and he’s a DJ and wine connoisseur.
Follow your curiosity as it leads past the sitting room’s vintage armchair, comfy sofa and walls of enlightened art. Punctuated with iconic modern prints, you’ve plenty to marvel – or you could simply drowse an afternoon away in a period armchair by the light of the fireplace’s fairy lights.
Discover fresh flavours in the shiny black kitchen, the Warhol print in the hallway, or the master bedroom’s blend of old maps and new furniture. And before you call it a day in the comfy, white double, do expand your horizons with the zoo view from its arched window.

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Primrose Hill
Primrose Hill, particularly Chalcot Square, is almost comically celeb-laden. You can’t move for luvvies, supermodels and fading and flourishing rock and pop stars as well as the odd politician and star columnist. Don’t let that put you off though. Primrose Hill is one of the loveliest spots in London. That’s why they are there.
There are the squares and crescents of fantasy early Victorian piles, most of them painted in subtle pastels and many of them boasting a blue plaque celebrating residents past, from Sylvia Plath to Fredrich Engels (and a fun couple they would have made).
Just north of Regents Park and London Zoo, the hill itself is more mound really but still offers sweeping views of the London basin. The larger park it sits in is the perfect sun bathing and picnicking spot during the summer.
Regent’s Park Road is a charming little strip where you can find artisan bread, a Vanessa Bruno dress, the new Hilary Mantel in hardback and a case of decent Riesling within 100 yards. And despite the eye-watering property prices, there is still something a laid-back charm about Primrose Hill. And a few, but only a few, reminders left that twenty years ago, the area was still a little rough round the edges, more shabby than chic.
What makes this apartment unique
Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room, with online payment and confirmation. You get the same attention to detail and personal service too.
Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There’s a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities.
Once we’ve helped you settle in, we’re just a call away, 24/7. If it’s something we can’t solve over the phone, we’ll pop over to lend a hand.
And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them – places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
