October 2014

Under no circumstances would I recommend this property to anyone! #1 reason,we arrived in London after an overnight flight from the States,only to find that we unable to contact "Irene" as we were instructed! After several attempts,we made our way to the property.There was a key code on the door.No code was given to us! The gentleman who owned the business next door asked how he could help.He knew the handyman who worked in the building and called him to let us in.The room,in no way resembled the pictures on the Wimbu site.It was dirty, and musty,the shower caulking black with mold!The "bath towels" were the size of a tea towel,2 each for 10 days.And,we never saw "Irene" in the 10 Days we were there!

| 204 High Street Harlesden, NW10 4SY London Apartment "E" |
Location on a busy road junction with traffic lights, thereby extreme noise nuisance, this enhanced by a loose steel manhole cover on the road, which is like a blacksmith's hammer on its own when driving beats

DESCRIPTION (excerpts with commentary):
| The flats are fully furnished, own private bathroom (toilet and shower cabin), ..., washing machine, ... |
The shower room looks as if it had been recycled from a building demolition. Adhesive residues on the wall tiles show where there was even a coat hook or a shelf bracket.
Washer not available,
Toilet brush available, but only with half a stick,

• | self-catering fully fitted kitchen (including Fridge / Freezer, Microwave, Cooker / Oven, Vacuum Cleaner) |
Vacuums absent,
A so rusted (not: is rusted) colander has not seen the world.
Extractor hood filter available, greasy-tacky (but so what one has not to handle as a guest).
Smoke detectors available, however, in two parts and without battery.
The window curtains (not to speak of curtains) defy description.

• | double bed with bed linen & towels (one bath and one hand towels for each guest) |
Double bed only suitable for those who like that sort of thing. Hard, uncomfortable mattress, so loud creaks with every movement that the partner is reliable awakened.
Bath towels yes, towels not provided

• | furniture: ..., chairs, ..., dinning table, ... |
No chairs, just a rust bucket 2 seater upholstered sofa, dining table and not (if not a knee-high club table is to apply for it)

• | Underground (Tube): Willesden Junction Tube station 2-3 min walk |
right: 7-10 min (depending on luggage), traveling a staircase, 2 floors high

• | Local and Night Buses in seconds away |
Bus from London coming - about 240 seconds
Bus to London - about 90 seconds

What else?
Oh, the whole thing will cost € 31 p. P. i. DZ, without any service, clearly too expensive, especially since the whole house makes a worn, dilapidated impression.

And otherwise?
But otherwise everything is perfect there.

Not a very good place to stay for more than a couple of days. The price is far too high for the quality you get - and the quality is, in fact, quite low.

I lived here for 7 weeks during a work-related visit to London. The apartment I got did not look like the one in the picture. It was a lot dirtier. The kitchen sink had a rotten smell to it that never went away (and wasn't fixed despite me teeling the person in charge). I ended up buying a new pot because the one that was provided was badly damaged and unusable. I also bought cleaning supplies to keep the place somewhat tidy.

Worst of all: At least one wall seems to be moldy from a water damage. It gives off a very unpleasant smell.

One the plus side: Harlesden isn't fashionable but nice. Very international. And it's easy to reach the city (via Overground).

Large Studio to rent in London #205.1

El trato personal por parte de Wimdu, muy bien. El apartamento , está bien situado, pasa un autobús al lado que te lleva al centro (45 min) y la parada de metro está a solo 7 minutos andando (al centro en 15 min). La zona también es muy agradable con muchas tiendas y sitios de comer. Pero está viejo (aunque es cierto que parecía que estaban arreglando las casa). Los muebles, muy malos (la cama hacía ruido, el sofá cama estaba medio roto, dos sillas rotas por abajo, una ventana no cerraba bien). Y todo muy ruidoso (la calle, el baño donde se encendía un extractor con la luz, se oyen mucho los vecinos... nosotros acabamos comprándonos tapones para los oídos y así poder dormir). Creo que los de los muebles tiene fácil solución (poner unos nuevos, no hace fata que sean caros...). Creo que la relación calidad /precio ha estado descompensada (demasiado precio para lo que te dan).

Large Studio Swiss Cottage, London #FR5

Monolocale carino, attrezzato con stoviglie, asciugamani e biancheria per il letto.
Con fornelli a gas, forno elettrico, frigo e forno a microonde tutti perfettamente funzionanti e puliti.
L'appartamento è a 400 metri dalla stazione metropolitana di "Swiss Cottage" o "Finchley Road" però vicino alla seconda c'è un supermercato e un centro "O2" con diversi locali dove poter mangiare (dalla pizza ai tortellini...passando per il sushi)...
Altri piccoli negozi sono presenti anche a 100 metri di cui ristoranti o "Tesco Express"...
Bagno pulito, funzionale e doccia spaziosa.
La zona è molto tranquilla e siamo stati contenti di essere stati in questo posto per il nostro soggiorno a Londra.
P.S. l'appartamento è al secondo piano senza ascensore...ma il ragazzo che ci è venuto a dare le chiavi ci ha portato su le valigie.

Studio for a short stay London, #19.1

L'appartement est convenable, propre, un peu plus petit qu'il ne le paraît sur la photo mais correct malgré un évier bouché et une ampoule de chevet grillée (le gérant n'est pas très rigoureux quant à l'entretien des lieux).
Par contre, la porte d'entrée est très peu sécurisée (porte "légère" malgré des codes à taper pour entrer dans l'édifice).
Le pire reste la rue où plutôt l'impasse où se trouve l'appartement : on doit passer un porche non éclairé plutôt angoissant et surtout, la ruelle est pleine d'ordures, des tas d'ordures écrasées par les véhicules garés (des voitures de luxes!), des poubelles qui sont restées intactes du début à la fin de notre séjour (une semaine entière), des tas de sacs poubelles éventrés, un bouteille de gaz posée dessus devant notre appartement et tout le long de la ruelle et bien sûr des rats grouillant partout!
Passer par ce décor sordide et respirer des odeurs nauséabondes de détritus en décomposition matin et soir a été fort désagréable!
Je trouve donc le prix excessif ou le service déficient pour les 600 euros demandés.
Je garderai le souvenir d'une ville sale (des tas de poubelles sont souvent déposés sur les trottoirs), ne sachant pas gérer ses ordures malgré son activité financière si réputée et son niveau de vie très élevé.
J'ai des photos prises tous les jours sur ce que je dénonce là.

XLarge Flat near Kilburn Park (#K8)

L'organisation et l'accueil ont été très bon. En revanche les abords de l'immeuble sont sales, avec des détritus et des poubelles et ça sent mauvais.
L'immeuble est aussi très mal isolé pour le bruit et nous avons eu la malchance de tomber sur des voisins très bruyants la nuit.

Rent Large Studio London, zone 1 #IN4

El estudio estaba muy bien situado, el metro estaba muy cerca y además dos lineas diferentes, la calle paralela tenía mucha vida con restaurantes, tiendas de todo tipo supermercados, centros comerciales. Contacte con Irene por teléfono y muy amable, así como el chico que nos recibió en el estudio, eso si no hablaban español ninguno. Pero el estudio era muy pequeño cosa que ya sabíamos. para 2 personas vale pero para 4 que era nuestro caso el sofá cama era muy incomodo para dormir, el colchón de la cama tampoco era para tirar cohetes. Nos tuvimos que turnar para que mis pobres hijas no se destrozasen la espalda en el sofá que era como la cama de un faquir. Luego lo de la electricidad es otro cantar el contador tiene un llave con unas 4 libras y pico y si se te acaban tienes que ir a recargarlo en un super. Me parece de lo más cutre después de pagar una pasta por el estudio.

Big Studio to rent in London, zone 2 (#SG6)

Appartamento al confine tra la zona 2 e 3 di Londra, 5 minuti a piedi dalla stazione della metropolitana ( tenendo la sinistra e seguendo la strada principale ) 2 comodi supermercati a 100 mt dalla Metro ( consiglio quello sulla destra appena usciti dalla metro -Sainsbury's Local- )
Zona molto tranquilla per dormire la sera, adatta quindi alle famiglie. L'appartamento non è cosi splendido come appare nelle foto, abbastanza datato, abbastanza pulito, situato al secondo piano di una palazzina, mancava una sedia e un bicchiere ( in una settimana non hanno mai avuto il tempo di portarli...mha.... ) il secondo letto ( divano letto nero che si vede nelle foto) e la cosa piu scomoda da poter dormire, duro come una tavola )ci ho dormito io e mia figlia ha dormito nel matrimoniale.
La responsabile dell'alloggio ( Irene ) molto cordiale al telefono, se avete problemi con la lingua alcune volte potete trovare Sofia che parla italiano ed è gentilissima.
Il quartiere a prima vista non è ben tenuto e un po sporco per strada.
La scelta dell'appartamento è stata azzeccata, si risparmia rispetto un albergo, dai 15 ai 20 minuti di metro si raggiunge il centro di Londra, con una minima spesa si trova di tutto per fare colazione al supermercato, io mi sono portato moka e caffe da casa. Nel complesso mi sono trovato bene.

Rent Holiday Studio London, zone 1 #IN10

L'esperienza avuta è stata purtroppo negativa. Infatti il giorno stesso del nostro arrivo, ci siamo resi conto che le lenzuola non erano state cambiate; in particolare una federa era macchiata di giallo, mentre il lenzuolo risultava macchiato di sangue in più punti. alla nostra richiesta di sostituzione tramite sms (ore 18:01) ci è stato risposto che avreste verificato (come se fosse messo in dubbio quanto da me affermato). Poi più nulla, nemmeno una telefonata di scuse; naturalmente abbiamo dovuto sostenere la spesa dell'acquisto di nuove lenzuola oltre al disagio avuto. Non so se questa recensione sarà pubblicata; spero soltanto che prenderete gli opportuni provvedimenti affinché altri non subiscano il medesimo disagio da noi provato. Stefano Biondi
