Comfortable, light, bright top floor (4th) and self contained studio in a great location for getting to see everything London has to offer. Two tube stations and buses galore. A few minutes walk to London's Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.
Small studio, 20m2 (215 sq.ft) with kitchenette, bathroom. Clean, Very bright - top floor (with lift). Rooftop views.
Double bed, desk, 2 dining chairs, an armchair, TV, internet. Bright and airy.
Excellent location: Two minutes from the entrance to Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. The same to many buses and Lancaster Gate tube station.
Very good value for money and excellent location.
NOTE: The studio has just been painted, had a new floor put down, lights changed, curtains cleaned, new blinds. It is a very bright, comfortable base for 1 to 2 people.
HOWEVER - NOTE: The bathroom is old but functional and clean of course. Please note that the bath tub enamel is thin and discoloured but not dirty.
Restaurants, pubs, supermarkets, launderette - all within a very short distance.
Five tube (underground) lines are within a five minute walk: Lancaster Gate is just a few minutes walk and is on the Central Line - 1 stop to Marble Arch, two to Bond Street.
Paddington is less than a five minute walk and is where you will find the Circle, District, Bakerloo, and Hammersmith and City lines.
The Heathrow Express and Heathrow Connect are also here.
Many, many buses.
However, you can walk, within half an hour, to Notting Hill, Portobello Road, Kensington, South Kensington (for museums and the Albert Hall), Knightsbridge (Harrods), Mayfair, Oxford Street.
This really is a superb location for getting to see London.
The studio is self contained so the bathroom is within the studio.

The photo was me at 13 and it is staying there!!!!
Very well travelled Londoner - 59 years old.
I have been a Tour Director for 35 years - it is now in the blood.
When I travel, I prefer staying in flats/apartments/houses rather than hotels and discovered airbnb on one of my recent trips to Israel.
As I travel so much for work, I do nowadays prefer my free time to be spent at home or on short trips. I love the English countryside so I plan to go as often as possible. My two favourite cities (apart from London) are Tel Aviv and New York. I plan to stay in the Negev soon.
London is home to me and probably always shall be - great city.
I now have two properties on airbnb - a small studio close to Kensington Gardens and a lovely, spacious studio loft in the very best location in Barcelona.
Hope you like my little place in London - just two streets from my home and my place in Barcelona. Two excellent locations.
