Property description

'Cheap and Cheerful' in a Superb Location is exactly what it is. This is a small, 20 square meter (215 square feet) studio flat with lots of light and a superb location with WiFi. STRICTLY NON SMOKING
NOTE ABOUT MINIMUM STAY: Please write to ask if you wish to fill a shorter stay gap.
Note: The flat has now been repainted, the wooden Venetian blinds have been replaced with white blinds (be careful not to be too rough with the cords please), Thick white curtains for the winter. New flooring. Nice and fresh. The bath tub is old and there is a shower overhead.

The Studio: Located on the 4th floor (5th floor for North Americans), with lift,* with rooftop views. The whole of one wall is window so the flat is very light indeed. One comfortable double bed, ample storage space, desk, TV, small kitchenette with microwave, fridge, sink, two ring hob to cook on, kettle, storage, cutlery and crockery.
Bathroom with wash basin, bathtub with overhead shower, toilet.
*Please note that the lift is not operating for a few months in 2015 as we need to put in a new one.

Ideal for a single or a couple visiting London for a week or more. Although small, it is very light and airy. The location is absolutely superb with the whole of London within very easy reach.

Where is it? : Just over a minute's walk from Kensington Gardens with the Peter Pan statue, Italian fountains, Kensington Palace. This just next to where Kensington Gardens joins Hyde Park. Wonderful for strolls and picnics. Walk through the park to the Royal Albert Hall, the museums of South Kensington and the up market areas of Kensington and Knightsbridge (with Harvey Nichols and Harrods).

A 15 minute walk (if you don't want to take one of the many buses or the tube) to Park Lane, Mayfair or Oxford Street (Selfridges) or a little further to Bond Street.
A 20 minute walk, or a short bus ride to Portobello Road.

Transport is fantastic in this area: The flat is a two minute walk from Lancaster Gate tube station - very frequent and short journeys to Marble Arch, Bond Street, Oxford Street, Tottenham Court Road (for Soho and Theatreland) OR to Notting Hill, Holland Park or Shepherds Bush for the largest city centre shopping centre in Europe - Westfield.

Many and frequent buses.

If this is not enough, you will be a 5 minute walk from Paddington station with the Heathrow Express, Heathrow Connect and another 4 tube/underground lines. Mainline trains to the West of England - Bath, Oxford etc, Wales.

Many buses available here too.

Queensway, a 24 hour International eating area is just a 10 minute walk away.

Super Location - London could not be easier than from this spot.

NOTE: Check in - We always try to get you in as soon as possible however, if your flight arrives early in the morning you must understand that you will not be able to enter the studio until 1100 - that is the earliest we could do it.
Check out is by 1100.
