Antes de nuestra llegada, Nada estuvo muy atenta para informarnos sobre cualquier cosa que necesitáramos. Nos recibió su hijo, que nos explicó lo básico del piso y nos indicó dónde dejar las llaves el día de nuestra salida.
El apartamento está genial, idéntico a las fotos: a la cocina no le falta absolutamente nada; los dos dormitorios son espaciosos, con los colchones de las camas impecables, y cada uno con un amplio armario. El salón es muy grande, y tiene una cama supletoria instalada. Y el baño también está bien.
Por poner una pega, la distancia hasta la estación de metro es de 10-12 minutos andando. Es cierto que hay líneas de autobuses, pero si se prescinde de ellas, ese paseo a la estación de metro de Ladbroke Grove, después de todo el día caminando, se hace un poco duro.
A 10 minutos del apartamento, hay un supermercado enorme (en España, hablaríamos de un hipermercado), en el que no falta de nada. Quien tenga pensado no ir de restaurantes en Londres, lo puede utilizar a diario (abre incluso los domingos).
Nada fue muy atenta al dejarnos algunas cosas para comer: leche, zumo, fruta...
Londres es genial, y este piso también.
Everything was perfect again! I've been here already with my family last year and we came back because we really felt good at the apartment. We will definitely come back again!
Highly recommended - absolutely fantastic value place close to the centre of London!
We were met at the flat by Nada's son, who showed us around and welcomed us. The flat has two very good sized double bedrooms, one with a balcony, as well as a good sized living room (which has a lovely big balcony), and a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. The flat is perfect for 5 adults - two couples and a fifth for whom there is a single bed in the living room.
The flat was immaculately clean with all the necessary essentials - and more! The location is close to the local bus routes which take you to the very centre of London and all of the sights are within 30-40minutes, plus the Westfield White City shopping centre, and Ladbroke Grove tube station.
All in all, it was a great stay!
We are a family of 5 (including two children) and spent 4 days at Nada's flat. It was an excellent experience! Nada was very helpful and was always available. The flat is just as described, very clean and modern. The neighbourhood is very good, with pubs and supermarkets nearby. We surely recommend it!
Our hostess, Nada, greeted us in person. She went over everything regarding the apartment and gave us directions to the grocery store, bus line and nearby restaurants. She had even purchased some grocery staples, i.e. milk, bread, juice and instant coffee for use to use.
The flat was as described, clean and adequate for a family of 4 (bearing in mind that one bed is in the living room). Nice touch to have a few breakfast items in the fridge. Flat is part of a small complex of flats near a hospital and other flats in a non assuming street, walking distance from a supermarket and a few minutes from a bus stop and subway. We found it easiest to use the bus after the first day. A couple of eating options within minutes, including a typical local pub. Portabelo market area (Notting Hill) is a couple of bus stops away. Overall we found the location convenient while we spent most of our days in the city. Recommended, taking into account that cost for value for location is good. As other reviewers have noted the flat is not obvious when first getting there so best to look for 4a which is a business then flat complex number. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
Nada's unit was clean and warm and we thoroughly enjoyed staying there. It is presented as per the photos and is close to transport (underground) and the usual useful facilities (grocery stores, cafes etc.). Nada greeted us on arrival and kindly provided a few things to get us started (cereal, fruit, milk etc.) which was greatly appreciated. We would have no hesitation in staying at Nada's unit again and would recommend its use to others.
About the Host, Nada
I love traveling, reading (travel writing if I can not travel) and walking. Enjoy going to museums (Victoria and Albert Museum being my favorite), shows and concert.
Sunny day is enough to make me happy!
