Within two minutes walk there are at least four markets (Tesco, Sainsburys, and smaller local stores), two Tube stops (Central, Circle, and District lines), a drugstore (Boots), a bank (Barclays), an entrance to Hyde Park, and countless restaurant options (Chinese, Persian, Italian, Indian, Pub) and snack shops (kababs, gelato, coffee). 20-30 minutes on the Tube will get you anywhere in the City. The apartment itself is a lovely, well appointed place to call 'home' - very quiet, despite the busy street location. Supremely comfortable bed, convenient kitchen with all the appliances and tools you need to cook yourself a meal, and a wonderful shower with plenty of hot water. The building is secure and well heated. The owner was in contact with us before and during our stay and provided all the information that we needed to enjoy our time in London. We were sorry to see our vacation end and would love a return visit very soon.
What a great apartment to stay in. Everything you need and more. Rafael sent excellent instructions prior to our stay and we used the Green Tomato taxi he suggested from the airport which was great. His assistant was there to meet us and everything went smoothly.
Getting around from Queensway is easy, you can do a lot on foot, but the Queensway tube is so close you can use that. Do get an oyster card for the transport, so easy and cheap.
We would not hesitate to recommend this stay and will use agian ourselves when we return to this fantastic city!
We have stayed in London before and wanted to try this area. We found it very easy to take subway, bus or walk to gardens.Great it was between Bayswater and Queensway so you had a choice of the underground lines.Easy to get to Oxford road, Notting Hill Market and the giant Westfield. Well appointed apartment with all you need. Handy to restaurants and supermarkets. We like to stock up on food and stay in and relax when we have been out and about all day. Rafael very easy to deal with. Would recommend!
My husband and I spent 5 nights at the apartment. Located on the 2nd floor, access is via either lifts or the staircase. It was beautifully furnished, very clean and had very good amenities. The bed was very comfortable. The location is excellent as it is only about 30 metres from Bayswater tube which offers both District and Circle lines and about 40 metres from Queensway tube which has the Central line. It makes travelling throughout London a breeze. Hyde Park, Kensington Park, the Serpentine plus Buckingham Place Are within walking distance. We also walked to Westminster Abbey which takes about an hour but as it was early in the morning it was a lovely time to enjoy the stroll.. Queensway has a great number of restaurants offering a variety of cuisines. The Four Seasons is a really good Chinese resturant. The area felt very safe as we often came back late at night due to shows we had booked. The owner Rafael is very helpful and offers great advice. He was quick response to any requests was excellent.
Arriving early evening after a long flight, we were warmly greeted and given full instructions about the property.
The apartment had everything we needed for our stay . Great location.
Location is excellent in terms of convenience, and the cosmopolitan ambiance of the neighborhood is just terrific. I wish the bed had been a bit bigger, but it was comfortable enough, and I slept just fine. Building has an elevator, and the apartment is well-equipped, including a washer/dryer. Wi-fi works well, and you can stream Netscape on the TV. If you need an immersion blender, there's one in the drawer ...
Excellent value for the money.
Apartment was just as advertised. Very clean and well equipped. Location is perfect. Close to 2 tube stations and Kensington Gardens
