2 Bedroom Penthouse near Notting Hill w/ BALCONY

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property


Our bright modern penthouse flat in the Westbourne Grove area of Bayswater is a stone's throw from Notting Hill and Kensington in the heart of West London. It has a balcony and views overlooking historic Whiteleys. In the vicinity are endless shops, grocery stores and restaurants.

The location is ideal, 10 mins walk from Kensington Palace & Gardens, Hyde Park, Portobello Road Market, and Notting Hill Gate. 5 mins from Tube stations Royal Oak, Bayswater, Queensway, and Paddington.


This is a two-story penthouse flat on the 5th and 6th floors in a 1930s Art Deco style brick building, with the Master Bedroom and Bath upstairs and the second bedroom and bathroom downstairs.

The Master bedroom has 1 (UK) King size bed; the second bedroom has 1 double bed. Please note that a UK King is an American Queen size bed.

We also have a lovely patio with deck chairs to enjoy with views down the famous Queensway all the way to Kensington Gardens and a spanning view of the historical Whiteleys building, the oldest mall in London's history.

For your comfort the flat comes equipped with WIFI, a French press, microwave, hair dryer, electric kettle, clothes drying rack (in addition to a dryer) and dishwasher.


The building is accessible via two different entrances - one on the main road (Queensway) and one on a residential road (Inver Court off of Inverness Terrace). Either entrance has access to either lift, but you may need to go to the other side of the building through the court yard.

You will be given 2 sets of keys.


The key handover will be done in person and will give you a chance to tour the flat and ask any questions. Your point of contact will be reachable by phone and/or text.


The Bayswater/Notting Hill area cannot be beat for location, a mix of culture, relaxation, food/drink and shopping.


A 5 minute walk to Bayswater and Royal Oak tube stations and 7 minutes to Queensway. Bus stops are just steps away as well but you may find that you walk to many of the spots around town because it's so lovely and there's lots to see along the way. We recommend you download the Citymapper app to help you navigate London.


Check in is flexible - just let us know your estimated time of arrival.

Check out is at 1pm (but can also be flexible, depending on whether we have another guest checking in that day - please inquire)


Please note that a UK King size bed is equivalent to an American Queen size bed. Also, BBQ'ing is not allowed on the deck.

Flat near Hyde Park

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of this flat.. right off Hyde Park. Tube is very close .. tons of restaurants and shops. Nice walk thru Hyde Park to Whole Foods.

Kitchen seemed to be stocked but we did not cook since there were so many restaurants near. I would recommend Arro coffee around the corner.

Nice master upstairs.. bedroom downstairs is very small( not a complaint since owner did tell us this) but probably better for family then 2 couples.

The owner Sy was so helpful.. gave us several suggestions that really made our stay a lot easier.

Great location and lots of room

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice place to stay. We were traveling with another couple and the space was perfect. It has a bedroom with bathroom upstairs and another bedroom and bathroom on the main floor. The views were spectacular. We loved the deck outside. It was a nice place to come home to after a busy day out enjoying beautiful London.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

This flat is as advertised with the exception of the clothes dryer. It does not work so we used the provided dryer rack. Flat is equipped with all essentials and some extras you don’t expect. It really is a great location close to tube stations, coffee shops, grocery stores and good restaurants. The bed is a comfortable American queen size and on the soft side and we slept great in it. Prax was attentive when we needed him and provided a warm welcome to begin our Lodon vacation. Be forewarned, there are steps! So if you can’t manage steps to get up to the property, you might have difficulty (they have a small lift for floors 2-5 on one side of building and another small lift for floors 2-4 on the other end of the building). Overall, it was a roomy, nicely furnished retreat from the bustle of sightseeing. The patio was a wonderful place to relax in the evenings. The bathrooms are roomy and the showers GREAT!!!! One recommendation would be a chest of some kind in the downstairs bedroom for unpacking. Upstairs has tons of storage, but downstairs could use some drawers for clothes. Thank you Sy for renting this excellent property. We will recommend for friends traveling to London.

A great place!

  • 5 of 5

Location, amenities, availability of restaurants, shops, grocery stores, and the Tube ( three stations) couldn’t be better. The flat is completely equipped with all you need during your stay. We loved it. No exceptions!

Great space, great location, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this flat/apartment. The location was terrific. We felt like Londoners as we came and went from the flat. The neighborhood has everything you could possibly need. There were many nearby Tube and bus options. We walked through Kensington Park several times which is located only a couple blocks away. The flat itself was extremely comfortable. My husband and I enjoyed the upstairs master bedroom, with its comfy bed and spacious bathroom. Our 18 year old had the first floor bedroom to himself which he really liked considering we had spent the prior weekend together in a small hotel in Edinburgh! The kitchen was great and easy to use. I enjoyed a cup of coffee on the balcony on one of the warmer mornings. WiFi worked great. The building was clean and quiet. I highly recommend this flat to anyone looking to find a relaxing spot away from the busy tourist areas.
