Edgware Road is one of London’s most vibrant, multicultural, central areas which isn’t on the standard tourist trail. With hidden waterways like Paddington Basin five minutes away, and fifteen to Little Venice, there are pockets of serenity in this otherwise lively region of restaurants and shops. At the top of this stretch, just a minute from Edgware Road tube station, your home is another peaceful space away from the hustle and bustle. Natural-coloured fabrics like stone and grey set a calming tone, while the dark olive-green headboard and Persian-style hanging rug add hints of colour. You’ve got a bright window space where you can perch with a good novel, or a Scandi-style workspace where you can sit and pen your own. For inspiration, walk down the road, peering into delicious Lebanese restaurants and Middle-Eastern cafés, and end up at the iconic Marble Arch in less than fifteen minutes. Or maybe longer, depending if you stop in somewhere along the way for a snack or a tea. From here, you can enter into the vast, verdant space of Hyde Park past the historic Speakers’ Corner – the home of free speech frequented by William Morris and George Orwell.
Home truths: *As this home is on a lively main road, you might hear a bit of street noise

* There's no in-suite laundry, but you can head to a nearby laundrette
*A pack 'n play cot can be provided by the host if you request this in advance
*Your host regularly updates the decor, layout, and furniture, so the home might not look exactly like these photos
* This is a more hotel-like suite with a bedroom and bathroom – there’s no kitchen or lounge (the space is just over 22 square metres)
