Comfy Sunlit Room With Fireplace
My property is in NW10, Willesden Junction. It is an area very close to Wembley, Portobello Market and Queens Park, Westfield Shopping Centre and the Central Middlessex Hospital ( buses (phone number hidden) and 226).
Transport facilities are very good, two underground stations ( Zone 2), Bakerloo Line which takes about 25 minutes to Oxford St or Piccadilly Circus. The overground will take you all over North London or to the South with a final destination in Clapham Junction. There are also a number of buses to take you to central London, number 18 to Euston, 266 to Hammersmith or to Golders Green. For more information look into (website hidden) where you can get all the information regarding public transport.
If you like to exercise, Roundwood 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. For more information about the centre please have a look at their web page: (website hidden) There is also a Bikram yoga centre about 15 minutes bus ride from the flat: (website hidden) If you are interested in mediation and more alternative ways of life, the Brahma Kumaris centre is a 15 minute walk from the flat, more info in : (website hidden)
The area has quite a few good affordable restaurants ranging from Spanish, Caribbean, Brazilian and Iranian as well as a few good pubs on the Harrow Road such as the trendy Paradise or William the IV.
The flat was completely refurbished in 2009 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 quite large family kitchen and if If you are lucky enough to have good weather, a lot of my guests, have breakfast in the garden. We get the sun all day and it is very pleasant in the morning to sit and start the day in a peaceful manner.
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.
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 and if you are a dancer... that is my passion, so you will have all that information at your hands. I speak English, Spanish, French 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.
If you are a driver, I can book parking on the street for your stay. I provide this service free.
I interact with my guests as much as I can. If I am home and I am cooking I love to invite the guests to share the meal with my son and myself. I am very proud to say that some of my friends are from Wimdu that came as guests and we become friends.
I love interacting with people and any information you need I would be glad to spend time with you and explain. I love London and everything that it is offered, therefore I have good knowledge of how to get the most out of this wonderful city.
I love the diversity of this neighbourhood, different cultures and sometimes the crazy ambience that the area provides.If you are a cook, the area is like Aladin's Cave. You can find meats from Brazil in the local Brazilian's butchers. All type of Caribbean food at Blue Mountain ( a shops that caters for the Caribbean community).
There is also a 24 hour supermarket that offers Turkish food, olive bar, polish deli counter and freshly baked bread.
There is also some good restaurants in the area such as Iranian food, Spanish, Italian and Brazilian.I love the fact that you don't have to leave the area in order to meet all these different cultures.
There are also a couple of Brazilian/ Portuguese clubs with one of them offering Kizomba classes.
The flat is located 12 minutes walk from Willesden Junction. The Bakerloo line will take you to central London in 25 minutes, Picadilly Circus and the overground can take you to the North of London in very short space of time as well as to the South of London ( Clapham Junction).
The M1 is 10 minutes drive from the flat and the North Circular is also very close. The M40 is about 15 minutes drive.

Reviews for this host's other properties
Ich habe mich bei Pilar sehr wohl gefühlt. Ich hatte ein kleines, nettes Zimmer. Das Bad war völlig in Ordnung und in der Küche konnte man sich immer einen Tee kochen. Es war zunächst nicht ganz einfach die Unterkunft zu finden, sie liegt doch ein ganzes Stück von der Station Willesden Junction entfernt.
Es gibt jedoch auch Busse und so ist man innerhalb einer halben Stunde in der City. Sehr empfehlenswert.
Ein nettes, kleines Zimmer in einer insgesamt hübschen Wohnung. Mit den öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln (kleiner Fußmarsch zu der Bahnstation) ist die Londoner City in ca. einer halben Stunde zu erreichen.
Als Gast ist mehr sehr unabhängig.
Für Sightseeing-Touren und kurze Wochenendtrips ist die Unterkunft zu empfehlen!
Enjoyed the stay. Everything was clean and the bathroom nice. The kitchen was big and it provided everything.
Pilar is a very nice, helpful and lovely host. And the place is very clean and quiet. I would definitely stay in Pilar's house whenever I get the chance to visit London again.
Nice little room in an interesting part of London. Friendly and helpful host.
Pilar est une hôtesse très prévenante, sa maison est très bien desservie par les transports (métro ou bus) - je recommande
en revanche, les voyageurs ont perdu leurs règles de savoir vivre ensemble (c'est une chambre d'hôtes, pas un hôtel)
C'est mon troisième séjour à Londres depuis que je suis membre wimdu.
J'ai choisi ce logement au regard des nombreux commentaires positifs des invités précédents.
Tout était conforme à mes attentes.
Merci à Pilar et à son fils pour la qualité de votre accueil. Je vous recommanderai et je reviendrai.
Je vous mets la note de 10/10 pour la recommandation.
Very nice host. The room is okay. But the dictrict Harslesden is very special... only blacks...
Pilar's house is clean and comfortable and everything I needed was provided. We did not see much of each other but I can tell she is a friendly person.
I would be happy to be her guest again.
