About

Our apartment in Central London is located near Hyde Park (on the North side). The park is across the street. It is sometimes available for short term rentals, for one week to one month, and occasionally as long as two months. For availability during concrete periods of time please respond to this ad because availability changes very quickly. The apartment is near several tube (metro) stations (the closest two stations, Queensway (Central Line) and Bayswater (Central and District), are just one minute away on foot South and North respectively; and Notting Hill Gate, Royal Oak, Lancaster Gate, and Paddington are fairly close, all under 10 minutes walk). The apartment is located in a well maintained large red brick mansion block with high ceilings, two lifts and 24 hour porterage. It is on the 3d floor (US 4th), with all the windows looking into the courtyard (hence it is quiet, though the location is very central and bustling with activity). There are two large (by the UK standards) bedrooms, a very large living room (reception), a brand new separate fully equipped kitchen with all new appliances (washer, dryer, dishwasher, extractor fan, fridge and freezer), and a brand new bathroom. There are restored original wood floors in all the rooms and tile in the kitchen and bathroom. We use one of the bedrooms as an office, but does have a double bed as well. The refurbishment was finished at the end of 2012. The flat has everything you may need away from home, from pots & pans to bedsheets, towels, dishes, TV, and wireless broadband. The location is very convenient. In addition to the excellent transportation links, the grocery store (Sainsbury's) is in the next building; and Marks & Spencer, Tesco, and Waitrose are about five minutes away or less; numerous restaurants (from high cuisine to inexpensive ethnic places) are in the same or next block. The Imperial College London is on the other side of Hyde Park (a pleasant walk when the weather is good) as is Harrods. Oxford Street is about the same distance East along Hyde Park edge, on Bayswater Road. For the UCL and British Library, the direct tube line from Royal Oak or Bayswater will take you there in five minutes. Central Line (n the same building essentially) takes you to the British Museum. Paddington is a walking distance for Heathrow Express (15 minutes to Heathrow), and Eurostar terminal at St. Pancras is less than 10 minutes by metro, again, on a direct line to Kings Cross. Portobello Market is an easy walking distance. Regents Park is still a walking distance, though 30 minutes away. There are numerous garden squares within five minutes or less walk from the apartment. The list can be continued.
