About the property

One Of Two Adjoining Properties / Families Especially Welcome

Apartment is located above a Security Showroom directly across from St. Mary's Hospital (where Prince George 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 black & white tiled floor, huge windows and the exposed brick wall of the living/dining room. A large, well equipped kitchen also awaits you. We have just installed a brand new bathroom on the ground floor, featuring shower, toilet and sink! The flat is tastefully furnished with brand new, modern furniture throughout. There is a small rooftop patio for barbequing or sunbathing (weather permitting). We also ask that smoking be confined to this area!

Up one flight of stairs you will find the three bedrooms, the bathroom and a utility closet. Two of the bedrooms furnished with double beds, while the third is smaller and features a bunk bed (sleeps 2). 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. In the rare event of a heat wave we will provide you with fans! A cleaner is available on request (at your own expense).

Should you be part of a larger group, you have the option of also renting our next door property which has 4 bedrooms & 2 bathroomss and can sleep up to 12 persons!

Perfect family hangout

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our family! We were traveling with our 12 & 9 year olds as well as a family friend. The apartment was spacious enough for us to each have space from the others at the end of the day (or when the kids weren't getting along), yet cozy enough to enjoy each other's company as well.

This is a third floor walk up, so be prepared to navigate the stairs. We just counted it as part of our exercise each day - lol! All three bedrooms as well as one bathroom are upstairs in the unit. The second bathroom is on the main floor with the kitchen/dining/sitting area.

The apartment is located conveniently close to Paddington Station - only 15 mins from Heathrow if you take the express! We were able to get everywhere we wanted to go from Paddington Station following the tube as well as the National Rail Service trains.

There are several excellent coffee and pastry shops just steps from the front door as well. The restaurants we tried in the neighborhood were good and decently priced. Our favorite was Ya Holla, a Lebanese place kitty-corner to Paddington Station.

There is a convenience store near the entrance to the apartment, but we were charged different prices each time we shopped there. There are several other grocery stores that are within walking distance though. Our only recommendation for the apartment would be to have a few reusable grocery bags available as all the stores charge for bags.

Everything else we needed was well provided. Plenty of place settings, glasses and tea/coffee mugs, toaster, electric hot water kettle, extra towels, dishwasher, washer, dryer, etc... Having a washer and dryer is a must when traveling with kids. Be prepared for them to take a little longer to do their job than the American ones though;-)

We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book this apartment again if we return.

Convenient, spacious, clean

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (2 adults, 2 teens, 1 child) stayed at this property in Nov. 2016. It's just as described - spacious and very clean, just over a block away from the Paddington tube and rail stations, and walking distance to Hyde Park, restaurants, etc. We mostly ate out, but the kitchen was well stocked and it would be easy for visitors to cook if they choose. Noise level was as expected for a city property. We appreciated the central location - we walked across the park to Buckingham Palace one day, and the other direction to Regents Park another. Bunk beds in one room worked well for the younger teen and child, but I'm not sure I'd put a bigger kid or adult on the top bunk. Overall, a great property in a super location. Maria was responsive and there if we needed her. Five stars - highly recommend.

Clean & Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the maisonette for three days as a family of 5 (two parents, two kids and a grandmother). We found the place to be exactly as described, clean and well equipped. The location is perfect in terms of exploring London. We also enjoyed our daily walks to Hyde park. We had to leave very early to get to Heathrow airport and this proved very easy with a quick walk to the train station. Maria (housekeeper) was very friendly and very helpful. Email communication leading up to our stay was always very prompt and professional. All in all, a perfect experience for us.

We would highly recommend this apartment.

Clean and reasonable size

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I like this apartment. The only thing was as an Asian, one quilt was not enough to me during midnight as I feel cold. So luckily there are a spare bedroom which I could took those quilt to roll myself up as well.

Basically everything is clean. WIFI cut once, but Maria fixed it on the same day which is fine. On Saturday mid-night there were some drunk people shouting on the street, but not long(maybe I felt asleep again). The only recommendation would be some new cooking pan would be perfect.

By the way, I love the dryer and the dishwasher. Great thing to have it as I stayed longer than a week.

Amazing location, comfortable flat near Paddington

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six (four adults and two kids) had a wonderful three days at Maria's massionette near Paddington station in July. The location was excellent, easy access to anywhere you want to go in London, plus just a quick walk to Hyde Park for a summer afternoon. The service was excellent and the apartment well appointed. Maria was very responsive to any requests before our arrival and all went great! The apartment is just like the pictures, very clean, well kept, spacious. Lots of coffee shops and little restaurants nearby. Sleeps six in beds with a pull out couch.
