Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Bayswater

Newly decorated spacious studio, next to Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens

This studio flat would suit a single or couple. It has its own entrance from the street, but is part of a large private house. It is quiet and brilliantly located for the park, shopping and sightseeing. The flat is maintained to a high standard and is quiet and well heated. It has a large double bed with new mattress and pillows. There is a clothes washer and dryer. Separate kitchen (separate room) with microwave, cooker etc. The Studio room has lots of cupboard space, a TV, WIFI and a small sofa. There is a small shower off the bedroom and between the bedroom and kitchen there is a small table for eating. This is a really sweet studio and it isn't that small.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • pets considered

About Ann-Mari

We are an English family who have restored the whole building as our home. The front room studio works perfectly to rent as it has its own entrance. We have only just started letting out the studio in the basement. It has worked very well, and there is a housekeeper who will make the beds on arrival and make sure everything is absolutely perfect.

Ann-Mari purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Ann-Mari chose Bayswater

This is a really beautiful house of grand proportions and lovingly restored. The area is just wonderful and we really love living here. It is both quiet and vibrant and centrally located plus perfect for the park as we have two dogs.

What makes this apartment unique

Its the only complete house in the street, all the others have been converted into hotels or flats and it makes this house really special

Cannot beat the location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this flat! We walked from Paddington to the location and when walking we could tell it was a safe area and very nice are (we noticed a lot of high end cars around). We could not tell at all that we were in a basement location because of the amount of sun light that came through the huge windows, and unlike other posts we did not find that it smelled musty at all! The location is unbeatable! Close to a bus stop, two tube stations and a walk to many restaurants. Ann-Mari left restaurant suggestions that were very helpful! The Leinster Arms pub down the street was our go-to pub while we were there. We did ask for the manual for the washer/dryer combo just because of never using that type of machine before. Ann-Mari and her husband were so welcoming and even helped to order us a taxi for the airport trip home. We had a great stay and would stay here again in the future.

Lovely flat

  • of 5

My daughter and I just returned from our stay. We had a great time and the flat was perfect. There were supplies for coffee and tea there and even shampoo and laundry soap. Americans, do ask about the washer/dryer combo. If you are going to use it. They can be confusing. There is a tight staircase to get into the basement flat but we managed to get even our big duffel down it. Ann-mari was lovely, working with me even though I had made a date error and our stay had to be shortened.

As with any stay my only suggestion for travelers is to bring your own power strips/converters. My experience in Europe has been that older homes don't have as many electrical sockets as today's technology uses.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I will certainly will provide a power strip and it is currently in the flat. There are already 10 power sockets in the studio, plus a further 4 in the kitchen.

Girls trip

  • of 5

My friend and I decided on a flat rental for our trip to London and we were not disappointed with this flat. Superb location with lots of cute restaurants and pubs within walking distance. Hyde Park is just down the street and Paddington Station only a 10 min walk away which made transport to and from Heathrow super easy! The flat itself was very spacious with new finishes. Don't let the basement location deter you from renting this place as it was very warm and the large bedroom window provided ample light during the day. I must comment specifically on the bed as it was very comfortable! Most other places I have rented in the past the beds have been not very comfortable. The owners Ivo and Ann-Mari were very helpful in getting us settled and allowing us to store our luggage on site after we checked out as we had a late evening flight. Overall a lovely experience and I would highly recommend this flat to friends and family for future rentals!

Fantastic apartment 10/10

  • of 5

My partner and myself have just returned from a 5 day stay at Ivo and Anns lovely apartment. It is in a perfect location to reach everywhere in London. Close enough to walk to Oxford Street for shopping or to Hyde Park which is literally at the bottom of the street. There is also a frw pubs at the top of the rd and restaurants around about the same area. It is a fantastic flat a real home from home. You are also very close to the underground and bus routes. Ivo is a lovely man who made sure we had everything we needed. He is also there if you need to ask anything . We visit London every year at this time and this is the best place we have stayed. In fact I am in the process of booking again for next year. I would recommend this accomodation to anyone and would give it ten out of ten. Cant wait to visit again. Thanks again Ivo and Ann for ka fantastic stay in your lovely apartment.

This property was in an ideal location for us.

  • 4 of 5

Even though it is a basement suite, the floors were warm and there was absolutely no smell of damp or mustiness. The amenities were top notch: good shower, excellent bed, clean and well cared for. Our only suggestion would to make it more homey with a coat rack by the door, a full length mirror and more cozy seating in the hallway/kitchen. We really enjoyed the Leinster Arms and the proximity to Kensington Park and the tube stations.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I think you are right and that we will put a coat hook in the hallway and a mirror too - will get on to it in January 2015.

Our favorite place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in 7 different places over 3 weeks in Iceland, London and France and this was by far our FAVORITE place! It was clean, comfortable and we would absolutely stay here again.

It was perfect for a couple and larger than many of the places we stayed. The pocket door that separated the bedroom from the sitting area and kitchen was nice when one of us wanted to rest. The location was great and only a few blocks from public transportation, restaurants and stores. Ann-Mari was also very nice.

I was hesitant to pay in cash upon arrival but there were no problems. 5 Stars!

This flat is located in Bayswater. The street is quiet, but the area is vibrant and fun, with shops, bars and restaurants nearby. It is close to all public transport (tubes & buses) so for a base it is excellent. Oxford Street is just 4 minutes by bus, Kensington Gardens 2 minutes walk from the front door and it's a 5 minutes bus ride to Portobello Road Market. Round the corner is Whiteleys Department Store, which has lots of shops cinemas and restaurants. Queensway is a few minutes walk away & is full of ethnic restaurants and great fun. It is in a brilliant location for sightseeing as well as shopping and eating. Paddington Station is 5 minutes walk from the flat making it very easy to get to from from Heathrow airport - you take the Heathrow Express from Heathrow to Paddington, which takes 15 minutes.
