Key Info
  • A small, homely residence located close to zone 1 Paddington Station, this residence is perfectly located for anyone studying or visiting Central London. The residence borders Hyde Park close to the Lancaster Gate entrance near the beautiful Italian Gardens and the serpentine waterway.
  • This is a 'budget' hostel-style residence which means it offers basic but clean accommodation at a very reasonable price. It also means the residence not only offers single rooms but shared twin and multiple rooms as well. This provides an even wider range of budget-friendly options in one of the most expensive areas of London.

Location

Lancaster Gate sits on the northern edge of Hyde Park, and is one of the grandest and most stylish Victorian housing areas. The streets are lined with traditional white British terrace houses made famous in films such as Mary Poppins, Paddington and Notting Hill. The local area is filled with boutique 5-star hotels as tourists flock to the location due to its proximity to a large number of tourist attractions and the famous shopping districts of Oxford Street, Carnaby Street and Bond Street.

The residence could not be situated in a more convenient part of central London with both zone 1 Lancaster Gate Station and the huge ‘London Paddington Station’. This not only gives you access to all of London via four underground lines but also all of the UK via the excellent overground rail and coach services from the station.
