About Robert Davies

I have lived in London now for about 20 years and enjoy its diversity.

Robert Davies purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Robert Davies chose Westminster and West End


I love the property which has a lovely view of the rooftops of Bayswater. It's just a 5 minute walk to both Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. You get the sunshine (when it comes out) all day long as the flat is west facing.

1 double bedroom apartment:

When I bought this property, I loved the fact that the view was literally the top of a tree. As with the property above, the apartment is a stone's throw from the parks and within walking distance to the west end including Marble Arch, Notting Hill and Kensington High Street.

What makes this apartment unique

Within 5 minutes walking distance of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park and tube stations. A brisk 20 minute walk to Marble Arch and Oxford Street. Both properties are situated in a recently refurbished early Victorian building.

Fantastic location - everything you need so close

  • 5 of 5

The studio is a perfect base for your stay in London, five minutes to Paddington station, 10 minutes to Hyde Park 15 mins to Portobello Rd Markets, all at a casual stroll.

Exceptionally clean, very light, great views over the district. Lots of stairs - don't pack a big suitcase.

Robert is amazing, he met me early, carried my bags showed me how everything worked and was available for help during my stay. Totally recommend the studio. Hopefully I'll be back to visit again.

Quaint and perfectly British

  • 5 of 5

Rob was absolutely delightful. He met us upon our arrival and even carried our suitcase up! You can tell that Rob cared for his guests' needs - the apartment was filled with amenities for both short and long-term guests.

The studio loft was the perfect size for us. Rob took the time to explain all of the inner workings to us non-Brits (I'm sure so we wouldn't blow a fuse!). The space was quiet as well, almost no interruption from the world outside.

This spot is indeed very close to Paddington and the hub of London. It's even near a great fish and chips place! (Hobsons).

A fair warning there are many steps to the top floor, and only a lift to the 2nd floor.

  • 5 of 5

Robert was very helpful, let us in early since our flight got in in the morning, carried our luggage upstairs. He took the time to show us all the features (how the combination microwave/convection oven worked, how the combi washer/dryer worked, etc.). Very good host, and the apartment itself was great too. We had a very nice stay. Thanks Robert!
