Overview

About the property

Apartment in great location, sleeps 4. Direct link to Heathrow & St Pancras.

This is a very bright apartment on the third floor (with an elevator) of a historic Victorian town house (A typical grand white London mansion block which is now a listed building). The apartment has long west facing views over a mews and is only four minutes walk from the largest open space in London - Hyde Park. The apartment comprises a sitting room with integral kitchen, a small bedroom and a bathroom.

The sitting room has a large west facing window with great views. There's a large comfortable sofa-bed, a dining table and four chairs, a coffee table, some high level cupboards and a tall fitted cupboard. The kitchen area is integral to the sitting room. There's an electric four ring hob and oven, a microwave, a fridge freezer and a washer-dryer. The bedroom has a large double glazed west facing window, a double bed, some high level cupboards and a chest of drawers. The bathroom has a bath with power shower above, a washbasin, a WC and a linen cupboard. The apartment is not large (only 35 square metres) and would be ideal for a couple to live in long term but can sleep up to four people for a short holiday.

Guests can access the whole of this self contained flat. There will be someone available to interact with you by telephone or to come to the apartment to deal with any problems throughout the whole of your stay.

Please note that whilst I'm happy to let the apartment out over the Christmas period, no booking can start between 24th and 27th Dec. because I will not be available to meet you. The check out time of 11am allows the cleaner to prepare the apartment for the next guest (bookings are often back to back). If a guest has a late return flight and wants to make use of the apartment until a later time they would be advised to book an extra day. Alternatively there is a left luggage facility at Paddington Station.

The neighbourhood:

The flat is in a great location, within walking distance of Hyde Park (London's largest park), Little Venice, Oxford Street, Notting Hill Gate, Portobello Road Market and Paddington. There are lots of excellent restaurants on your doorstep. It's a very safe area.

Getting around

The apartment is a four minute walk from Lancaster Gate Station which is on the central line which connects with Oxford Circus, Liverpool Street and many other places of interest. It's a six minute walk to Paddington on the Bakerloo, Circle and Hammersmith and City lines. There are also lots of bus routes along Bayswater Road which is four minutes walk from the apartment.

Great value in a good location

  • 5 of 5

I gave 5 stars because although it is not large it was just as represented and in a fantastic location and the value for the money was fantastic. Ian was also very easy to work with and very helpful.

Cozy, Clean, and Centrally Located

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Lancaster Gate! The location is ideal---only a few blocks from Hyde Park, and a very short walk to both the Lancaster Gate and Paddington tube stations. On our first morning, we strolled through the park to Buckingham Palace for the changing of the guard. The flat is modest in size, but the beds and pullout were comfortable for one adult and two children. We ate several meals at home in the mini-kitchen, though there are lots of great eateries just outside the door. The property manager was also very responsive via text when we had questions. We would definitely stay at this flat again.

Fantastic Location; Two Upgrades Necessary

  • 3 of 5

The flat is perfectly located and bright and sunny as described. It was also clean and offered plenty of storage. Given its location the flat is remarkably quiet and peaceful at all times of day and evening.

The flat is comfortable for a maximum of two people. While technically possible to sleep four it would make things quite crowded.

My two suggestions are for the owner to purchase an electric tea kettle and to replace the linens, which are worn and well past their prime.

Other than the above, however, I had a lovely visit and look forward to returning to the neighborhood.

Small unit in convenient location

  • 3 of 5

Property is in very good location, close to both Paddington and Lancaster Gate stations. Apartment is on third floor and unfortunately elevator was not working throughout our stay. It is a small unit, suitable for two people.

Genau richtig für eine Städtreise auf der man London erleben und ...

  • 5 of 5

... auf der man eine Unterkunft zum Regenerieren braucht, also zum Schlafen, Duschen und Frühstücken. Mit 4 Erwachsenen war es ein bisschen eng, aber "gemütlich" haben wir zu hause. Da die Tage zu kurz waren, um alles zu sehen, werden wir sicher nochmal wiederkommen.

appartement calme et bien situé

  • 4 of 5

appartement vraiment calme (on a dormi les fenêtres ouvertes, et les oiseaux chantent le matin!!).

ds quartier résidentiel, à 5 min de hyde park (lancaster gate) = tres bien situé!

équipement correct, avec machine à laver (super pratique avec des enfants)

plutôt pour une famille de 4 que 4 adultes.

difficile de stationner bon marché ... mais ça, c'est Londres.
