London’s official centre! We’re located between two completely contrasting neighbourhoods: The busy Edgware Road, where you can get the freshest, best kebabs at any time of night or shop for bargain fruit and veg, at a real London street Market and sample real street food (as opposed to expensive Hipster Street food). Walk in the opposite direction and you’ll find: Little Venice prettily perched on Regents Canal (and part of a wonderful canal walk), Little Venice is home to London’s chattering classes. As well as being very pretty you’ll find oe elf the best, most exotic fruit and veg shops I’ve ever seen, one of London’s oldest (and finest) wine merchants as wells as cafes, organic butchers & grocers and little boutiques.

This place is a wonderful crossroads and a great place to explore London from for the curious. Landing in London This place is pretty convenient from wherever you land in London. Paddington is a twenty minute walk away, or super quick bus ride. So perfect is you arrive from Heathrow or have been visiting Bristol, Oxford, Cornwall (etc). If you come from Stansted or Luton get off at Marble Arch or Baker street, and it’s a very very short bus/underground ride. King’s Cross/St. Pancreas also a short ride away on the underground (Eurostar) as is Victoria (Gatwick). Underground, Bus or even Bike! I think a real plus point is that there is an Oysterbike stand literally 2 minutes from the flat, which means you can travel for free by bike round central London! (Oyster bike stands are only found in the centre). 3 mins away are a couple of bus stops with many, many bus routes, also a cheap way to travel though not free! But if you want to spend top dollar on your transport, but admittedly get there faster then there are 3 tube station nearby the nearest is 8 mins walk away the furthest 15, and you have 4 lines to take far and wide. For Iconic London? There are so many ‘must see/must do things’ - but just to get your bearings... Regents Park is 15 minutes walk away and Hyde Park/Marble Arch are a good 25 mins by foot. You could be in Baker Street in about 15-20 mins and the same for Notting Hill, home of the movie, the carnival and Portobello Road. For most of the major galleries I think you’d be there is 20-30 minutes and if you want to explore East London it will take a bit Longer. Considering London is such a great vast city (with 6 travel Zones) - you have everything on your doorstep. Is the flat as nice as it looks in the picture? In a word ‘Yes’. I’ve done the photos myself, partly because I think it’s important that photos are representative. I haven’t used any cameral angels to distort. What you see is what you get. By London standards this is a spacious one bedroom, the flat is 50m2 and it comfortably sleeps 4, with two on a very comfortable sofa bed. This place is a home so I think you’ll find all the furnishings comfortable and functional. You’ll find everything you need from washing powder to olive oil, a hair dryer and an ironing board (and maybe even a fancy juice in the fridge). About me? I’m a Londoner born and bred and I still love exploring this city: Coffee, food, cocktails and a fancy glass of wine are my weaknesses. So if that is your thing, I am truly and oasis of information!More

I selected this London booking based on the photo (and price). The host, Jasmin Nowak (the person's actual name is Ewe), was very polite, gracious and helpful but without disrespecting my host, the flat was disappointing. The photo shows a clean, lovely room but in...More
