Style Notes

Modern British. These stylish serviced apartments in Maida Vale have an understated elegance punctuated by one-off design pieces by Tom Dixon and Mark Brazier Jones. The one-bedroom apartment overlooks an award-winning 3-acre communal garden, the real jewel in the crown of this property. With a sleek color palette, floral prints and vases of flowers, the sun-filled apartments are breezy and welcoming. Elegant wood flooring makes the 2-bedroom apartment feel like a chic home from home. The standout apartment, the penthouse suite, has design pieces including a Pierre Vandel coffee table, cushions by Tracey Boyd and vintage trunk side tables. We love the views from the penthouse roof terrace, the great location and the thoughtful family perks.

Loved our Stay at The Europa House; perfect London apartment in an elegant and accessible location. We received a warm welcome with our toddler being shown straight to the cupboard by reception full of books/toys. Highlights: (1) The locked garden! A rare treat to have access to one of London's 'secret' community gardens. The most glorious English garden with swings and small playground perfect for young kids. Fantastic in February's blustery wind and rain, must be even more magical when the suns out. (2) Very clean, and with a thorough and fast daily service. (3) Ample space, our 2-bedroom was large (by London standards) with very good storage for stroller/shoes/luggage etc. Lowlights: None. We would highly recommend and will be returning when next in London.

We loved our stay at the Europa House. It's the perfect serviced apartment type accommodation; there is fresh water, milk, fruit, and most importantly with kids, daily housekeeping ;). We stayed with my 10 year old son and my dad, and they were able to share a second bedroom with twin beds. They were also able to provide a comfortable portable bed for a friend who was staying for the night. There are two full bathrooms and a fully operational kitchen. Maida Vale / Little Venice is a perfect and well-connected central base to explore London, with a Tesco Express grocery store just across the street and surrounded by charming pubs and a cute high street. Guests have access to a beautiful private garden with a playground that is only accessible to the homes around the garden. We love the Europa House and will be back soon.!

Little Venice, London

Canal boats, Regent's Park and London Zoo

Right in the heart of the city, just north of Paddington, this lovely neighborhood of canal boats, Regency houses and ducks is just the place to relax as a family. It's easy to reach the rest of the city from here, and when the hustle and bustle gets too much, retreat to this little oasis, take a walk along the Regent's Canal Path to discover parks and playgrounds along the way, or take the boat to London Zoo.
