Luxury Central Apartment
|Address||St Pauls Avenue, NW2 5UG London, United Kingdom|
|Property type||Private room|
|Response time||A few hours|
Transport facilities are very good, underground stations ( Zone 2), Jubilee Line which takes about 25 minutes to Oxford St or Piccadilly Circus and straight to Stratford Olimpic Venue. The flat is 5 minutes’ walk to the underground station
If you like to exercise, Gladstone Park is just a 5 minute walk where you can exercise in a very relaxed setting but if you are more into swimming or weight training, Willesden Sports Centre is a 12 minute walk. The sport centre is very good and you can pay by the day, so you could incorporate training in your holidays or your short stay.
The flat is in a Victorian Mansion block with all modern facilities. There are two bedrooms, one occupied by me and a double room which is the room offered to rent. You will have access to a sitting room, a quite large family kitchen. You will also have access unlimited access to Internet through WIFI.
I am flexible in terms of checking in and out and you will have your own keys. I love London and have quite a busy social life, so I can also give you information about this wonderful city in terms of what is going on for people who want to feel the real London and not just the tourist visits
I speak English, Spanish, some Portuguese, some Italian , and my son is fluent in French so we can answer questions in a few languages and help you if you need further information about the area.
I think I have covered quite a lot, but please if there is anything I have left out, just email me and will be happy to answer all your questions.
I hope to see you soon in my home soon.

Reviews of this property
For us it was the perfect accommodation for our 6-day London trip. The location of the house in Willesden Green area (north-west of London) had all the advantages: good transport links to / from airport in Luton (approx. 1 hour including change to Finchley Road) and in the City (about 20 minutes) with a very fast S-Bahn connection almost by the minute. There were sufficient shopping and numerous restaurants nearby.
The apartment was about a 7 minute walk from the train station. This was on the third floor (no elevator) of an over 100 years old, very well-kept house in the immediate vicinity of the railway line.
The room was big enough, bright, friendly and very clean as the apartment as a whole. The furniture was more than adequate, among others with a large built-in wardrobe, which offered plenty of space. The bed was comfortable and had a perfectly adequate size for two adult persons.
The remaining Faszilitäten that could also be used were very good. This included the bright and beautifully designed bathroom in old English style and very comfortable kitchen with all the things that one example needed for a breakfast. For guests free compartments in the refrigerator and in one of the cupboards were provided.
As very attentive and charming proved our host Gabriel, to whom we owe also very valuable tips for tours and attractions in London, which are not necessarily to be found in any travel guide. He was always approachable and always friendly. We felt as welcome guests - could not be better!
Für uns war das die perfekte Unterbringung für unseren 6-tägigen London-Trip. Die Lage des Hauses im Stadtteil Willesden Green (Nordwesten von London) bot alle Vorteile: Gute Verkehrsanbindung vom / zum Flughafen in Luton (ca. 1 Stunde inkl. Umstieg in Finchley Road) sowie in die City (ca. 20 Minuten) mit einer sehr schnellen S-Bahnverbindung fast im Minutentakt. Es gab ausreichende Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und zahlreiche Restaurants in der Nähe.
Die Wohnung lag etwa 7 Minuten zu Fuß vom Bahnhof entfernt. Diese befand sich im dritten Stock (kein Fahrstuhl) eines über 100 Jahre alten, sehr gepflegten Hauses in direkter Nähe der Bahnstrecke.
Das Zimmer war ausreichend groß, hell, freundlich und sehr sauber wie die Wohnung insgesamt. Die Möblierung war völlig ausreichend unter anderem mit einem großen Einbauschrank, der viel Platz bot. Das Bett war bequem und besaß eine durchaus ausreichende Größe für zwei ausgewachsene Personen.
Die übrigen Faszilitäten, die man ebenfalls nutzen konnte, waren sehr gut. Hierzu zählte das helle und wunderbar gestaltete Badezimmer im alt-englischen Stil sowie die sehr gemütliche Küche mit allen Dingen, die man z.B. für ein Frühstück benötigt. Für die Gäste waren freie Fächer im Kühlschrank und in einem der Hängeschränke vorgesehen.
Als sehr aufmerksam und charmant erwies sich unser Gastgeber Gabriel, dem wir auch sehr wertvolle Tipps für Touren und Sehenswertes in London verdanken, die nicht unbedingt in jedem Reiseführer zu finden sind. Er war stets ansprechbar und immer freundlich. Wir haben uns als willkommene Gäste gefühlt - besser geht es nicht!
Gabriel is a charming host. Very considerate. Unfortunately the apartment was very cold, about 13 celsius thermometer according corridor. Gabriel said nothing was not to upset him but take in these conditions was very rude. For cons, the location was great apart. About 20 minutes from Piccadilly. Despite the inconvenience our stay at Gabriel went well.
Gabriel est un hôte charmant. Très prévenant. Malheureusement l'appartement était très froid , environ 13 celsius selon le thermomètre du corridor. On a rien dit à Gabriel pour ne pas le vexer mais prendre un dans ces conditions était très désagréable. Par contre, l'apart était très bien situé. Environ 20 minutes de Piccadilly. Malgré ce désagrément notre séjour chez Gabriel s'est bien passé.
My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Gabriel's flat, and it was the best place we could have ever imagined to stay in. This flat was absolutely stunning. Gabriel was an amazing host, very warm and welcoming. He was very informative, and was the nicest man to have as a host. This place will one hundred percent be my go to place to stay when I make some trips back to London. Our room was very spacious, so we never felt like we had to spend our time else where in the flat. Great location about 10 to 15 mins away from central and there was everything you needed as soon as you exited the tube station. I fell in love eith Gabriel's place.
Very good welcome from Gabriel. Nice room in a nice apartment. Trips to London without difficulties (subway and bus) of shops and restaurants nearby.
Très bon accueil de la part de Gabriel. Belle chambre dans un bel appartement. Déplacements vers Londres sans difficultés (métro et bus) Des commerces et restaurants à proximité.
La casa estaba genial y muy bien conectada, todo segun lo acordado y gabriel muy amable, volveriamos sin duda
The place was lovely- very clean, very Special, very comfortable! Gabriel is a very friendly and helpful host. We enjoyed talking to him, when he was there (which he isn' t very often!).
The tube line was close but didn' t run during the Bank Holidays over Easter. The replacement bus took much more time. Another small flaw: If you are used to standing while taking showers you might get a problem, because the beautiful antique bath tub only allows you to sit while showering...
I was there with my friend for 3 days and it was absolutely great! The apartment and decoration is amazing!
Gabriel is an excellent host with good advices and very friendly and courteous.
We immediately felt at home :-)
We would absolutely stay there again at any time.
Abbiamo trascorso una bellissima settimana in ambiente accogliente e di classe ancora più bello di come descritto nelle foto. Il proprietario, molto cordiale e disponibile, ci ha fatto sentire subito i benvenuti in questa casa dalla vera atmosfera vittoriana. La zona è raggiunta facilmente dalla tube Jubilee con cui arrivare in centro velocemente. Inoltre non mancano locali e supermercati. Grazie Gabriel!
A charming place to stay and a charming host. A comfortable, clean and stylish apartment to return to. Thank you. Cheers Rosalie and Jude
Gastheer erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Mooie inrichting, schoon en dichtbij metro. In de buurt lekker gegeten bij Sanzio, italiaans restaurant. Volgende keer gaan we weer naar Gabriel toe.
The host was very kind and helpful. Beautiful interior, clean and near by the tube. Near by we have had a nice dinner at Sanzio, italian restaurant. Next time we will stay at Gabriel's apartment again.
