Best Airbnbs in Hampstead
A Creative Retreat
Sleeping up to five people, this cool loft boasts its own balcony and features plenty of working spaces – it’s an ideal apartment for those who might need to keep on top of emails during a trip.
The overhead skylight and floor to ceiling windows help to keep things light and airy, while the fur-laden arm chairs offer a stylish place to unwind after a long day of exploring the capital. Though, it has to be said that the fabulous brick and glass staircase is the real star of the show.
The home is located in a quiet residential area, so you can get your head down at night undisturbed, not to mention it’s also great value for money.
Minimal and Spacious 2-Bed
Tranquility comes to mind when describing this beautiful 2-bedroom apartment. Ideally situated in the charming village, the nearby pub is a quaint spot – ideal if a Sunday roast followed by a walk on the heath sounds like a lot of you.
A neutral colour palette is accentuated by renaissance-style art pieces, and while this apartment is small, it has everything needed in a London Airbnb – including a well-stocked coffee machine. We also adore the cosy bedrooms: imagine sinking into those beds after a long day!
A Cosy Apartment in a Victorian Building
Whilst this flat may only be slightly larger than a studio, it wins all the awards for style and flair. The apartment is located in a Victorian building, tucked away down a quiet side street in Hampstead, and is decorated to perfection. The cool carpet in the living room is a particularly welcome touch.
Begin the day with a Nespresso coffee before taking on the nearby heath – or catching the tube into central London and exploring all the main tourist attractions.
Large Family Home
Nestled on a leafy residential street amongst other period buildings is this lovely modernised family home. The large kitchen is perfect for rustling up wholesome meals – that is, with all the brilliant restaurants nearby, if you can be bothered.
All three bedrooms are cosy – and the three separate bathrooms are a huge bonus. But, trust us, you’ll be lusting over that emerald sofa for weeks after.
Sleek 3-Bed with Roof Terrace
With two terraces, a couple of bathrooms, and a spacious kitchen/diner, you’ve got plenty of space to chill out in this gorgeous property.
Entertainment is sorted: from the grand piano to the huge TV, you’ll never find yourself bored in this home. Hampstead’s swimming ponds are only a stone’s throw away, too.
The best part? There’s nothing more luxurious than coming home after a long day and jumping into the extra-long bath for a relaxing soak.
An Exotic Escape (& a Pet Tortoise!)
Boasting four bedrooms and bathrooms, this is the perfect Hampstead Airbnb to get the gang together and head to the capital for a chilled weekend.
Throw open the doors and the space works as an open plan living and dining area – the kitchen is huge. We’re already dreaming about the delicious recipes we could create there. And don’t get us started on that freestanding bath.
Basil, the pet tortoise, lives outside on the lush, green patio – and he makes the perfect breakfast date.
Arty 1920s Home
With simple but well-put-together decor, this character-filled home is plenty modern, but pays its respects to the roaring 20s. Browse the owner’s personal collection of art, books, and fascinating antiquities for a glimpse into the past.
The two bedrooms have ample space for four and the reading book provides guests with a little bit of “me time”. Additionally, both bathrooms and the kitchen in this Hampstead Airbnb are well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay.
Classic Home Near the Heath
This one-bed is located next to Hampstead station and has great transport links – in other words, it’s a great place to bed down for the night away from the chaos of central London.
It may be small, but the minimalist design of this flat means it doesn’t ever feel too crowded. The onsite gym means that you can stretch your legs even if the weather doesn’t play ball (likely).
The open-plan living and dining area allows you to chat while you cook. Or you can head to one of the many fine-dining restaurants for something a little classier.
Stylish 2-Bed Studio
If you can peel yourself away from the fluffy main bed featured in this property, an eclectic living and dining space awaits down the spiral staircase. Luckily the twin room is just as comfy, too.
Rustic decor decorates the living room, with dark and white wood furniture accessorised with striped cushions and an impressive Moroccan rug. The country-style kitchen comes fully equipped for any dishes you might like to make, while the outside terrace is small but perfectly formed.
Charming English Flat
Treading the line between minimal and colourful perfectly, this one-bed flat is a stunning option if you’re looking for an Airbnb in Hampstead. Just a three minute walk from Hampstead Heath, the location couldn’t be any more ideal. If you’re looking to see London sans crowds, this is a great spot.
If the weather allows (we can hope), gather your friends and cook up a storm on the BBQ outside on your private balcony.
Practical Tips for Booking Hampstead Airbnbs
- Hampstead is a little bit further out of the capital than the likes of Camden or Soho – this can save you money but also means you’ll spend more time travelling in and out of central London. Weigh up whether staying closer to the centre would be more beneficial than saving some cash.
- If you opt to explore Hampstead (and you definitely should), make sure you pack comfy shoes.
