Here's a ground floor apartment with 2 bedrooms and its own front door that's ideal for a family getaway to London, a couples weekend away, or for business guests who want easy access to all of London, in a location that can be easily reached from Heathrow Airport.
The Living Room / Kitchen / Dining Area
First on your right in the entrance hall is this pleasant and attractive space designed for socializing. The living area has a sofa, armchair and cushioned window seating that all offer up different vantage points from which to watch the apartment's TV or just sit and relax or catch up with fellow guests in your group. A raised area in one corner contains the dining table and chairs, really adding a sense of occasion to any special meal you might want to host during your stay, perhaps to celebrate an anniversary or birthday.
Immediately next to this is the kitchen, in which you'll find all the appliances you'll need to cook and clean for yourselves, so you can exert your self catering independence in London. A dishwasher and washer/dryer are both included.
The 2 Bedrooms
The master bedroom is across the hall from the lounge area and features a kingsize double, plenty of storge space and an ensuite shower room with WC and wash basin. The second bedroom nestles in the far corner of the house and has 2 single beds.
The main bathroom is next to the twin room and features a tub with shower over, plus a WC and wash basin. As already mentioned, there's an ensuite shower room in the master bedroom, so that's plenty of space for guests to get ready without having to wait too long for everyone else!
THE LOCAL AREA
You're sure to be impressed by the stature and style of the whitewashed houses in this highly desirable area of London. Staying here makes it easy to access all kinds of places across central London such as:
It's a short walk east along the Bayswater Road to London's premier shopping strip, where you'll find, among a whole host of shops and stores, the famous Selfridges department store.
It's not too far from the apartment to the area of London that's home to perhaps the most famous department store of them all - Harrods.
The wide expanse of this most central of London parks is about a 5-10 minute walk from the apartment. Come here for Winter Wonderland every November to January, and for summer concerts. Or just a pleasant stroll or jog anytime of year.
St Mary's Hospital
If you want to stay near the hospital, perhaps while someone you know has treatment, then it's good to know that the hospital is just the other side of Paddington Station from the apartment, easily accessible on foot or with a very short cab or bus ride.
Paddington Station is a very short walk from the apartment. And it's from here that you can catch railway services to Heathrow Airport via the Heathrow Express. It makes this a great place to stay if you are flying in and out of the UK's biggest airport. Trains from Paddington can also connect you to South Wales and locations in Devon and Cornwall.
Paddington also has a London Underground station that's served by multiple lines, So you can easily get from here to places like Wembley Central (for Wembley Stadium), King's Cross St Pancras (for Eurostar services to Paris and other European mainland destinations) and many stops in the City of London - handy if you have work there. Buses and taxis also serve the area around the apartment, and the London Bike Hire Scheme has pick-up points nearby.
