Just a short walk from Baker Street Station you will find this cosy modern apartment. A perfect place from which to explore London's West End and visit all the sights and attractions.
This quiet street has no through traffic so you won't be disturbed at night, yet you have all of London on your doorstep. Madame Tussaud's and the Sherlock Holmes museum are just around the corner. Marble Arch and the famous shops on Oxford Street are just a 15 minute walk through the streets of the West End. Catch a bus or tube from Baker Street Station and before you know it you will be admiring Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. Take a stroll along the South Bank and visit the London Eye. The British Museum, the National Gallery on Trafalgar Square and Tate Modern are all within half an hour’s travel.
This is authentic London so try traditional London grub, get Fish and Chips at the Seashell or enjoy Sunday lunch at The Chapel, my favourite local pub with a fine selection of beers and a gourmet menu. All of these are just a few minutes away. A little further along explore the intriguing metropolis London has become. Edgware Road, with it's delicious Middle Eastern restaurants. Crawford Street has splendid Thai and Indian curry houses. Baker Street has many restaurants, from Pizza and Pasta to Mexican and Japanese.
Rustle up a quick breakfast or dinner in the kitchen, fully equipped with gas hob, microwave combination oven and a fridge freezer. Both Tesco and Marks & Spencer supermarkets are less than 5 minutes away and they are open late, so grocery shopping is quick and easy. Eating in can be fun too and helps balance the budget! Don't want to cook? Just order a takeaway for delivery within the hour.
There is free unlimited WiFi so you can connect your phone or computer to the internet, or use the classic iMac which is in the living room. Check the latest bargains or current exhibitions London has to offer or connect with the folks back home. Once you have seen the major sights, why not take time to explore the area and find your own London. Stroll down Marylebone High Street with its wonderful shops or visit the fascinating Wallace Collection on Manchester Square.
Check out some television on the 32' flat screen TV or watch a movie on the Blu-Ray player, which also has Netflix, YouTube and the BBC iPlayer. There is a collection of DVD's and Blu-Rays including some classic Sherlock Holmes movies. Or relax with a good book.
If you have an iPhone or iPad I recommend the City Mapper app for getting around London and the Table Pouncer app for finding a table at a restaurant with a huge discount!
Constant hot running water is available for a long bath to relax or a refreshing shower: the choice is yours. Fluffy towels give you that luxurious feel. If you are staying a bit longer, feel free to use the efficient Hotpoint washer dryer. The 30 degree time saving wash gets things done in just over an hour. Clothes airer, Ironing board and Iron are provided as well as a hair-dryer. There is also a first aid kit in the kitchen for those little emergencies.
I think it's got all you need for a comfortable stay in London. Try it for yourself and let me know if you think the same!
This was my first flat when I was working as an editor in the West End, I bought it because I didn't like the idea of commuting in every day and I'm so glad I did.
The area is lovely with easy access to the West End but with the tranquillity of Regents Park and so many great shops and restaurants.
Neil Roberts purchased this apartment in 1985
The apartment is close to the bustling heart of London but in a quiet street with no traffic. Ideally located for travelling by underground from Baker Street, train from Marylebone and even by air from Heathrow which is only half an hour away on the Heathrow Express from Paddington.
Location, Location, Location! This flat is so centrally located but in a quiet street within easy walking distance of Regents Park, Baker Street, St Johns Wood and Edgware Road. Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus and London's Theatreland are just a few minutes away by bus or tube as are all of the tourist attractions like Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, the Houses of Parliament and the London a Eye on the South Bank.
Absolutely perfect. From first contact Neil was wonderful to deal with, an honest and forthright person. The apartment was exactly as photographed and as expected (in fact slightly larger than expected). We were travelling with a baby and a preschooler and Neil was very encouraging about this from the start. The kitchen, laundry and bathtub made our travel with children pleasant, and the location was very convenient to busses and the tube. The Oyster cards were filled for us on arrival and we filled them up before leaving - just so convenient! The little touches in the apartment (Union Jack pillow cases, map of London tea towels, etc.) were just plain fun. We walked to and from both Paddington and Euston station, easy walks, and were in Regents Park (a 5 min walk away) almost every day. Deposit was returned promptly. Stay here - you will not regret it!
We were so pleased with our decision to rent this flat. With two young boys, we probably loved the washing machine the most. But it was very comfortable for us. Very convenient to the Tube. And there's a Tesco between the flat and the Baker Street Station, so we could stop in for some quick groceries when we got back each night. A couple of nights, there was a good deal of noise out on the street, but we were too tired to care. We'd stay again.
For a vacationing couple this is the ideal one bedroom apartment. It is set up for the international visitor. Even the decor is themed to welcome you to the British culture. The apartment has all the necessary amenities ...a completely outfitted kitchen, washer/dryer, power converters, maps, books, toiletries, hair dryer, iron, Internet, computer, etc. Everything a guest would need. Plus, it is located in a quiet neighborhood but less then a 5 minute walk to the Marylebone tube/train station and a bit further to the Baker tube. All of London is readily available. A Main Street of stores and pubs is only a few streets away. Next time we are in London this will be the first place we will try to reserve.
We had a wonderful experience at this flat. Everything was exactly as it had been described. Our family appreciated the convenience of the tube stations at Marylebone and Baker Street, as well as major bus lines. We were met at our appointed time and welcomed by some treats and staple groceries already on the shelves and in the refrigerator. The neighborhood is quite quiet and very convenient to all London's main sights. We would not hesitate to stay at this location again and were very appreciative of Neil's hospitality.
Neil and his colleagues were excellent hosts. Very welcoming and accommodating. Flat is small, but worked well for our family of 4. Flat was clean, well appointed and great location to all public transport.
This is what we sent to the owner:
Thank you for advising that our deposit has been refunded. Thanks also for being prompt and friendly in all our dealings including meeting us at the flat.
We do have a considerable list of things that disappointed us at your property and I have outlined them for you as constructive comment:
* The bedroom is NOT AT ALL as shown in your online photos, there is no headboard, no foot-board and certainly no bedside tables, nor was there room for them and one could access the bed from only one side; additionally there were no drawers...as far as we could see this room is a obvious misrepresentation and it certainly was a complete disappointment.
* The carpet is completely threadbare in many places and is tired and not clean throughout...one daren't go barefoot.
* The toilet seat is broken and off one hinge.
* The livingroom furniture is exceptionally uncomfortable for any length of time and all we wanted to do was to watch the news!
*The kitchen was absolutely not clean other than superficially....food is stuck to all surfaces. There was one small tea towel, no dish cloth and the bare minimum of everything else. The place mats were caked with dried food from previous tenants and there were no napkins.
* The building, while well situated, is not well maintained and other flat occupants pound up and down stairs at all hours and leave the front door to slam when exiting...this reverberates through the flat.
* A good 20 hours before we were due to leave, cleaning folks arrived with a request to leave their two giant sized bags of supplies in the flat till we left; since there already wasn't sufficient room to swing the proverbial cat, I declined their request!
We have been renting this type of accommodation for the last 15 years in all parts of the world and for the last 10 years in London on an annual basis...so we know something about what to expect for what price. Yours was not inexpensive but ranks as well towards the very bottom of our list and we could not possibly recommend it in its current state. And this is a shame as the neighbourhood is one that we will return to next year. As we see it, your investment is not being maintained and eventually that'll catch up with you ...especially as the photos misrepresent the flat and are not what one finds on arrival.
I will be sharing this info on the HomeAway site so others will not be "caught" as we were!
We were welcomed with treats and supplies for next mornings breakfast which was very helpful considering we had just traveled or such a long time. The place allowed for the four of us (Parents plus two teens) to come back at the end of the day, unwind, do laundry and sleep.This was avery tight space for us, but it did the trick for a few days. The pad is incredibly close to Marylebone station and made for easy planning. The Sherlock motif was appreciated by all and the Wi-Fi and television were good. There is a grocer a few blocks down to buy your supplies like paper towels and coffee pods. The property was clean and there was a helpful guidebook to all amenities like the washer/dryer and microwave. All kinds of new toiletries were provided although we brought our own. Quiet neighborhood.
The Flat is located within easy walking distance of both Marylebone and Baker Street Stations.
It is within walking distance of Madame Tussauds, The Sherlock Holmes Museum, Regents Park, The London Business School, Lords Cricket Ground, St Johns Wood, Maida Vale, Little Venice, The Shops and Restaurants of Edgware Road and Londons West End with all the shopping, Restaurants and Entertainment you could wish for.
