This apartment was an excellent place for in London. It was clean and we felt safe and there was plenty of room for the two of us. Robert was accommodating and briefed us when we arrived on all the features of the apartment.
The place is an a very good location and only a couple minutes walk to the Paddington train station and tube. This was a good thing as we really need the tube to get around London. There are also a boat load of restaurants in this area.
I give it only 4 out of 5 stars because if there was one thing my wife and I figured out on this trip is that we are getting older. The apartment is on the top floor of the building and once we got off the elevator (or lift) which is very tiny, by the way, but that's Europe, one has to walk up two long flights of stairs. We did this okay, but like I said, we're getting older and it's just not so easy for us. Therefore, the 4 out of 5 rating is more to do with us than the flat.
I've had three wonderful stays at this flat and I really can't imagine visiting London and staying anywhere else. The apartment really is the perfect home away from home - spacious, comfortable, quiet, always impeccable, and featuring every amenity you could need. And the location really can't be beat with Paddington rail and Underground stations just a short and easy walk away (containing a Boots, Sainsbury's, M&S Simply Food, and other shops for quick, convenient shopping).
Rob is wonderful, always helpful and welcoming and easily reachable if you need him (and will carry your luggage up to the flat from the lift two floors below). I don't think you could find a nicer flat or a nicer owner. When next I visit London, this flat will once again be my go-to place to stay for sure.
We rented this flat for ten nights this trip. Everything about it iwas beyond my expectations. The one thing about it is that it is CLEAN! Everything works! It has everything you need for a short or long visit. There is a lot of room in this flat compared to most rentals in London. We love the location as you are a five minute walk from Paddington. Last year at this time we rented another flat from the same owner and it was the same. This was our 13th trip to London and when we come back we will do our best to rent from Robert D. He was a great help to us and will try to accommodate any of your wishes. Anyone that has visited London knows how hard it is to get a good clean rental there at a reasonable price. The internet works great as well.
Thanks - Bill
My husband and i loved this apartment! It was so convenient, within easy walking distance of Paddington Station for train and tube access, and so much cozier than a hotel. The stairs were a challenge at the end of a long day exploring, but totally worth it! We would definitely stay here again.
Very nicely decorated, furnished & equipped exactly like a home sld be. Cutleries, utensils, coffee, tea, sugar and even salt-pepper is available. Rob is very helpful & responsive. He helped me carry the bag up the flight of stairs. Location cant be better 15min to the right is Hyde Park to the left is Little Venice and less than 10min to Paddington Stn. There's a Sainsbury in the station and Waitrose is 10min away as well.
