Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Just a short stroll from Baker Street Station you will find this bijou georgian apartment. A perfect place from which to explore London and visit the well known sights and attractions.
This quiet street has no through traffic so you won't be disturbed at night, yet you have London on your doorstep. The Planetarium, Madame Tussaud's and the Sherlock Holmes museum are just around the corner. Marble Arch and the famous shops on Oxford Street are just a 15 minute walk through the streets of the West End. Hop on a bus or tube from Baker Street Station and before you know it you will be admiring Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. Take a stroll along the South Bank and visit the London Eye. The British Museum, the National Gallery on Trafalgar Square and Tate Modern are all within half an hour's travel.
This is authentic London so try traditional London fayre around the corner at The Pie Shop, get Fish and Chips at the Seashell or enjoy Sunday lunch at The Chapel, my favourite local pub with a fine selection of beers and a gourmet menu. All of these are just a few minutes away. A little further along explore the intriguing metropolis London has become. Edgware Road, with it's delicious Middle Eastern restaurants. Crawford Street has splendid Thai and Indian curry houses. Baker Street has many restaurants, from Pizza and Pasta to Mexican and Japanese.
Rustle up a quick breakfast or dinner in the kitchen, fully equipped with gas hob, microwave combination oven and a fridge freezer. Both Tesco and Marks & Spencer are less than 5 minutes away and they are open late, so grocery shopping is quick and easy. Eating in can be fun too and helps balance the budget! Don't want to cook? Just order a takeaway for delivery within the hour.
There is a 15' MacBook Pro for you to use or you can connect your own devices to the WiFi. Check the latest bargains or current exhibitions London has to offer or connect with the folks back home. Once you have 'done' the major sights, take time to explore the area and find your own London. Stroll down Marylebone High Street with its eclectic shops or visit the fascinating Wallace Collection on Manchester Square.
Check out some television on the 32' flat screen TV or watch a movie on the Blu-Ray player, which also has Netflix, YouTube and the BBC iPlayer. Or relax with one of the books I have provided.
If you have an iPhone or iPad I recommend the City Mapper app for getting around London and the Table Pouncer app for finding a table at a restaurant with a huge discount!
Constant hot running water is available for a long bath to relax or a refreshing shower: the choice is yours. Fluffy towels give you that luxurious feel. If you are staying a bit longer, feel free to use the efficient Hotpoint washer dryer. The 30 degree time saving wash gets things done in just over an hour. Clothes airer, Ironing board and Iron are provided as well as a hair-dryer.
I think it's got all you need for a comfortable stay in London. Try it for yourself and let me know if you think the same!
