CENTRAL LONDON (SLEEPS UP TO 12) ONLY 15MINS FROM HRW!

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday apartment in Paddington

One of two adjoining properties - Large Groups can Rent Both!

Apartment is located above a Security Showroom directly across from St. Mary's Hospital (where prince was recently born!) and only a one minute walk from Paddington Station.

There are several flights of stairs to climb after entering through the front door so access to disabled or elderly may be limited.

Upon entering the apartment you will be greeted by the tiled terracotta floors, a huge skylight and exposed brick wall of the living/dining room. A compact but well equipped kitchen also awaits you. There is also a small rooftop patio for barbequing or sunbathing (weather permitting).

Also on the first floor of the maisonette is a large bedroom comprising 4 single beds, walk-in closet and a gas fireplace. The windows look out onto busy, cosmopolitan Praed Street.

We have just had a brand new 2nd bathroom installed on the lower floor, featuring a shower (no bath).

Up one flight of stairs you will find three additional bedrooms, the bathroom and a utility closet. Two of the bedrooms are medium size furnished with queen size beds, while the third is much smaller and features a single bed. Floors on the upper level are hardwood except for the bathroom which features black and white tiling.

Recessed lighting is featured throughout the apartment. There is central heating but no air conditioning. A cleaner is available on request (at your own expense).

If you are part of a large group you can also rent our next door property which has 3 bedrooms and 1 bath and can sleep 7 persons.

About Maria Barry

The property has been in our family for over 60 years. My father started the business on the ground floor as a bicycle (and scooter) repair shop. He later expanded into cutting keys and eventually into a fully fledged locksmith firm. Today my 3 brothers and one sister continue the tradition! My role, since my older brother and his family moved out, is to keep the upstairs flat rented out as frequently as possible. The family is of Italian/Irish/Scottish decent. (We also have a property in Barga, Tuscany (Italy) listed with VRBO).

Maria Barry purchased this apartment in 1946

Why Maria Barry chose Paddington

Its proximity to many London sights and the easy access from Heathrow makes the location an ideal one!

What makes this apartment unique

The fact that there is almost always someone in the downstairs Security Showroom whom you can go to with problems and/or queries is definetely a bonus!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed in the rental along with his parents and two children. The space was even better than I expected and we were all very comfy and happy there. Very clean and tidy with a lot of room…so nice so that everyone had their own space. Amazing location and Maria was fantastic. Highly recommended! Oh, and even with the stairs, my 80+ parents in law were able to move around comfortably.

Great find in London!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed as a group of colleagues visiting London for a conference. The apartment was huge, extremely clean and located right smack in central London. The location was a dream for commuting practically anywhere we needed to be. We were so busy we didn't get to do much other than sleep at the flat, but I would definitely recommend the place to anyone looking for a big, centrally located flat in London with a lot of beds!

A perfect rental in London

  • 5 out of 5
This is an ideal rental for a large family. Our 7 people (3 generations) were able to spread out over 2 floors (4 bedrooms and 2 full baths) very comfortably. It was very clean. The dishwasher and washer/drier were in excellent condition and easy to use (something not always true in rentals). WiFi was fast and reliable.
The location, right down the road from Paddington Station, was excellent although on arrival we did chose to walk all the way to the London Eye. The “stroll” took one hour fifteen minutes with stops to see the sites and take pictures. It was very enjoyable to get a feel for the city in this way.
There was a huge variety of restaurants and pubs to choose from. Hyde Park is 8 minutes away, perfect for an early morning walk or run.
Those with mobility issues would find all the stairs difficult. Fortunately, this was not the case for us.
Maria was very friendly and professional from our first email conversation through to our departure.

Great place

We stayed in the two apartments (witch are connected) with eleven girls for a weekend. The apartments were very nice and clean. There was plenty of room and the location is perfect! We had a great time and Maria was very friendly and helpful!

Fantastic stay

  • 5 out of 5
We were a group of 9 visiting London for a conference over the weekend. Maria was very professional and hospitable right from when I emailed her, and that same attitude was constant throughout our stay. The place was very clean, central, towels and linens were all clean and fresh, laid out for us upon arrival. Location was great, 2 minute walk to Paddington train station and tube station, easy to get around. Heathrow Connect is 9.50 pounds and takes you directly to and from Heathrow, about 25 minutes (leaves every 30 minutes). Great eats and pubs around the flat, was a great stay overall, have nothing negative to say! Thanks Maria & Orlando!

Great location.

  • 4 out of 5
Really enjoyed our stay. The flat was in a great location (less than a block from the Paddington tube station, near lots of restaurants - including a great little bakery/coffee shop were we ate breakfast almost every morning - and a short walk from Hyde Park), was clean and kept up well, and had plenty of space for our party of 8. Our only complaint was that while there two days were extraordinarily hot and the flat did not have AC so it was very hot. The owner provided a couple small fans but since there were 8 of us in 4 bedrooms 2 bedrooms were without fans and even with the fans it was very hot. The owner was very accommodating with our departure - allowing us to stay until 12:30 as our flight out was not until 4:45 that afternoon.
