CENTRAL LONDON (SLEEPS UP TO 11) 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.

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

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

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!

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

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.

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.

Great with kids

My children and I stayed at the Paddington Maisonette while in London. It was as described. Many local eateries, very close to public transit. It was clean and had all the amenities we needed. We enjoyed the proximity to Kensington Garden, and to Hyde Park. There are a couple of local grocery stores. We used the Tube to get all around London. It was easy to use the local trains to get out to the studio tour for the Harry Potter movies. We could get to all the museums and tourist sites very easily.
