Description
Description

Hi! Our names are Pilar and Gabriel and our property is located in NW2, Willesden Green.

The flat is in a Victorian Mansion block with all modern facilities. There are two bedrooms, one occupied by us and a double room which is the room offered to rent.

The room is spacious and comfortably decorated. It has a double bed, a fireplace, large windows which makes the room bright. There is also a desk and an armchair.
You will have access to a sitting room and to a quite large family kitchen. You will also have unlimited access to Internet through WiFi.

It is located in an area very close to Wembley, Portobello Market and Queens Park, Westfield Shopping Centre and the Central Middlessex Hospital (buses 266,260,187 and 226).

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.

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 our 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.

House rules

I am flexible in terms of checking in and out and you will have your own keys.

If you are a driver I have a guest parking permit so there is no problem for you to bring your car.

Ich war mit meiner Freundin für 2 Nächte bei Gabriel zu Gast. Es gibt "eigentlich" nichts schlechtes über unseren Aufenthalt zu berichten. Wir hatten bei unserer Anreise nur ein kleines Problem:

Ich habe es versäumt mich bei Gabriel zu informieren in welcher Wohnung (Flat) er wohnt. Ich dachte, dass sowas wie in Deutschland gehandhabt wird, also das es ausreicht den Namen derjenigen Person zu kennen. Das ist in England jedoch leider nicht der Fall.... Also informiert euch vor eurer Anreise wo genau ihr klingeln müsst ;)

Zum Glück konnten uns die netten Nachbarn weiterhelfen. Schade finde ich jedoch, dass Gabriel mich vorab nicht dahingehend informiert hat wo genau ich klingeln muss, denn er weiß ja, dass sein Name an der Klingel nicht zu finden ist... Dann wären uns die 45 Minuten spät Abends in der Kälte nämlich erspart geblieben, er hatte in dieser Zeit leider auch nicht auf mehrere Anruf versuche reagiert und mir auch nicht wirklich gesagt wieso er das nicht getan hat.

Ich bewerte meinen Aufenthalt trotzallem keines Wegs negativ! Nach dem wir es endlich in die Wohnung geschafft hatten war Gabriel sehr nett zu uns und hat uns auch bei allen Fragen gezielt weitergeholfen und uns sogar angeboten sich um unser Taxis zurück nach Hause zu kümmern.

Deswegen gibt es auch "nur" 4 Sterne.

Ich würde jederzeit wieder bei Gabriel wohnen.

I really would like to speak to superior to you , I feel you are not the appropriate person and you only bring disfame to your company with your replies to me. I am amazed with your anwsers that basically you call me liar. I feel that you deserve action to be taken against you to protect others from you. You on the top it is you that you say lies

The first lie, you say is:
'There is nowhere mentioned that the offer has a garage where you can park your car savely...'

you make it sound that safety was my problem where I never said anything about safety. I said there was NOT parking space.

Second lie you say is:
'The normal parking was available for you, but you refused it....'

Where you there? I have a witness that there was not a parking space , and I even looked to park on the road and there was none as well.

Third lie, you say is:
'There is nowhere mentioned that the offer has a garage..'

Did I asked for a garage? I display you again here what was addvertised since by purpose you are overlooking it. THE STATEMENT OF THE HOST IS AND STILL IS IF YOU LOOK TODAY ON THE WEB:

» If you are a driver I have a guest parking permit so there is no
problem for you to bring your car.»

HE SAID HE HAS A GUEST PARKING PERMIT, AND WHEN I ARRIVED the host said sorry ' it is on the first come first served basis and it seems that somebody else has parked, so about the room take it or live it'.

Please refer me to your superior to resolve this matter.

Thank you
Maria Telidou

Sonja di Montalban, Oct 23 11:08 (CEST):

Dear Maria,

thank you very much for your reply and your feedback.

We regret that you do not agree to our terms & conditions, which mention clear, that we as a mediator keep the money for you only till one day after arrival for security reasons. You have contacted us regarding this issue one week after the departure day. The contract is closed between you and the host. You have received the booked accommodation as mentioned in the offer. There is nowhere mentioned that the offer has a garage where you can park your car savely. The normal parking was available for you, but you refused it. So overall there was no reason for not using the accommodation as booked and find an expensive hotel in the middle of the night and thats why regarding the cancellation policy which you have agreed, unfortunately you are not entitled to any refund. If the parking in a garage was so important for you, it would have been very helpful, if you speak with the host before about.

Still I have written an email to the host to ask him for any refund for you. I will let you know his answer.

Please understand that the hosts and Wimdu have fulfilled our part of the contract.

Thank you very much for understanding.

Best regards,

Sonja

Dear Wimdu,

I was the second guest together with Ms Telidou to the above property in London.

I live in the UK and I have a Ltd company as well.

I have seen the correspondence between Ms Telidou and yourself and I find your replies unacceptable under UK trading Standards legislation as the property was not as advertised and therefore not fit for purpose.

If you do not refund the money immediately to Ms Telidou and also provide compensation to myself and her you will leave me no option but to report you to the UK'S Trading Standards office and to BBC's Rogue Traders program as well as sending my complaint to all UK newspapers and put it on Twitter , Facebook and Google plus, if this matter if it is not dealt fairly and a full refund and compensation is not given to Ms Telidou from the other hotel Accomodation we had to pay.

I will wait 72 hour for your response prior to go to Trading Standards and start Small Claims Court proceedings against you.

Kind Regards
Costas Lambropoulos on behalf of Maria Telidou

Dear Wimdu,

About the booking

DOUBLE ROOM IN LUXURY APARMENT IN CENTRAL NW2 LONDON

St Pauls Avenue, NW2 5UG London, United Kingdom

Wimdu booking confirmation (6BX056QR)

Please leave a review for your Wimdu stay (6BX056QR London)

Wimdu booking confirmation (6BX056QR) (2) I would like to ask you
to refund my money since I did not stay. The reason was the car
parking. I arrived there and the person told me that I could
have a parking space for my car, only if, the only one, parking
space for guests was available in the yard. Since I arrived late
at night( and he knew about that) the space was occupied already
by another person. I chose that place on the grounds that there
was a parking space for me to leave the car and then move via
metro in the city. This is what was written in his description about
car parking on the web, so I made a booking because of that:

» If you are a driver I have a guest parking permit so there is no
problem for you to bring your car.»

Since our agreement was not kept and I had no other choice, I
left. I was searching 2 hour to find a hotel to go and it was 12
at night. This was not funny at all, arriving at the hotel 2.30
at night after a long flight and forced to pay triple from what I
would pay if the agreement was kept.

It is only fair to return to me the money and force the owner
to remove that false statement for car parking. I expect you to
return to me the amount asap. I am booking with you because of the
services you offered so far were good. I hope your understanding
and solving the issue properly will keep me using your services
and make good comment about you in the reviews.

Thank you
Maria Telidou

Very nice room/appartment and lovely, helpful hosts. We arrived 2h late, because of some issues with the british road system, but Pilar came back from her work to let us in. We got to the city in no time, the room is just a 5 minute walk away from the Jubilee Line. We can definitely recommend this room!

After some initial issues with contact and agreeing on how to get acces to the key, everything was fine. The apartment was great, we got our own room and shared the rest with the owner. In the weekends, we had breaksfast together with the owner and got a lot of tips and ideas for tours, practical things etc.

The apartment is close to the Underground with 14 minuttes to Piccadilly. Also very close is Sainsbury supermarket.

We can recommend this place for a nice vacation in London.

My stay in London has been very comfortable, large room, all cozy and elegant apartment. It is close to the subway station and very well connected to all of London in general, especially in the downtown area. I had the good fortune to meet Pilar, but if Gaby, who helped and guided at all times in our visit to the city. Without hesitation, ten for the host. Thanks for all your attentions.
