“As good as it gets”
Reviewed September 23, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Home away from home! From booking to departure, Rob is a pro and answered all of our questions and was accommodating in every way.

Perfect Location! Easy walk to Paddington and Lancaster Gate tubes; Having multiple lines is essential due to the labor strikes and breakdowns that often affect the tube.

Quiet! Hard to believe in such a great location that the flat is perfectly quiet and no noisy neighbors that you might get with a hotel.

Comfort! The bed is a comfortable US Full size equivalent. Having laundry meant not having to pack too much.

I can't say enough good about this place...wish we didn't have to come home.

“Fantastic place!!”
Reviewed September 8, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My fiance and I had a wonderful stay at this flat. (Who proposed to me in this very flat) Everything was perfect about this place. The location couldn't be more perfect, just a short 5 minute walk away from Paddington.
Rob was there to greet us, and gave us a very thorough tour of the place, which was greatly appreciated. He was very thoughtful and made us feel comfortable. And kept in touch with us on any updates.
The flat itself was a lovely place with everything we needed. It was beautifully decorated, with lovely art pieces and various trinkets. Also, as it was very warm while we were staying, the addition of the fan and Dyson Air was spot on! Made a huge difference.
The bed was very comfortable to sleep in after a busy day in the city.
The pictures really don't do the place justice! You have to see it for yourself! I would highly recommend this place to stay, and we will hopefully return on day!
Many thanks Rob!

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed August 12, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

From staying late to greet us on arrival from a delayed flight to helping us down the stairs with our bags on our last day (and up the stairs on our first day) every thing about this apartment reflected Robert's interest in making our stay a pleasant one.
The apartment is close to Paddington which makes access from Heathrow easy by using the Heathrow Express - 15 minutes on the train and you're 5 minutes from the apartment door.
As is noted in the listing there are stairs and this does need to be considered but it can count towards your 10,000 steps target if you have one.
We'd certainly stay here again.

“Wonderful!!”
Reviewed May 29, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

What a great flat! the photos do not do this apartment justice. Robert is a wonderful host.
There's a Waitrose not too far and a convenience store around the corner as well.
Very close to the Tube and busses.
We would definitively rent this flat again if it's available next time we go to London.

person found this review helpful

Rob greeted me at door to help with luggage & explain how things worked in flat There are some stairs plus lift but views over the rooftops are worth it. Flat was spotless and comfortably furnished. New kitchen & bath (shower over bath). Perfect for one or a couple. Very quiet. Walking distance from Paddington Staition & 10 minutes to Hyde Park. Would highly recommend

“Lovely apartment, perfect location,gracious host”
Reviewed January 6, 2016 for a stay in December 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed for 8 nights in this apartment in December. I echo all the positive comments of the other reviewers. The apartment is conveniently situated, 5 minutes from Paddington Station, with its multiple Underground lines, and all nearby services such as groceries ad pharmacies. Hyde Park is about 7 minute walk.

The apartment is very thoughtfully designed, decorated and quite comfortable. Amenities include a washer-dryer which is very helpful for longer stays, as well as a dishwasher. The wi-fi worked well. I would share the comments of others that the small double bed takes a bit of getting used to, but that's a minor issue.

Rob is a gracious host, very helpful and informative. As noted earlier, he kindly assists with transporting luggage into and out of the apartment., One tip: When you use the elevator, make sure that you close the metal grate after use. The elevator will not respond if the grate is not properly closed. We found that when the elevator appeared not to be working, it is only because an earlier passenger failed to close the grate behind them.
