Edgware Road is London's Arab high street, and in summer the air is rich with the scents of Okacbasi barbecues and full of the sounds of Middle Eastern and North African music.
Between Queensway and Bayswater Underground Stations is the Queens Ice Rink, careful it’s easy to miss with stairs going down into the main part of the building. The bunch of skittles at the top of the stairs is a clue. The main attraction here is the 10 pin bowling alley and the ice rink

The flat was exactly as it appeared in the pictures, the bathroom was okay and so was the kitchenette, although the apartment wasn't clean at all, full of dust bunnies everywhere and hair in the "clean" sheets the owner left us.Anyways our stay was good enough for the price we paid, quite low compared to the majority of the flats you find on the internet.
