Super Family Home! 1 Minute to Tube Station!

House, Private room - London, United Kingdom

ID 95505
5.0 (19 reviews)


Hi there!

The advantages of renting a room in our place :

1)Reasonable rent. Why pay more, possibly much more, for a room in Central London when you can hop on the tube, a minute away, which takes you into the heart of London?
2)Spacious and comfortable accommodation.
3) Safe, friendly family ambience.
4)A beautiful garden where you can sit and chill out!
5)Very convenient for travel.
6)Very convenient for amenities: the park, restaurants, shops just a minute away!
7)Off street parking (please note cars are parked on the property at guests' own risk!).

A bit more:
There is satellite tv (46inch flat screen), Wifi, washing machine, dryer, kitchen, garden etc.
The house itself is spacious and comfortable. Guests have use of the communal facilities: lounge, diner, kitchen, tv room. There are two bathrooms (one with shower, one with bath and shower) as well as downstairs cloakroom. Great news! We have recently refurbished our shower room to high standards. We have re-tiled, fitted new shower enclosure, new toilet, new vanity unit (washbasin and cupboard) and new illuminated, sensor operated, mirrored cabinet. The shower room is a delight to use!
We have a beautiful garden which has a range of shrubs and trees, a lawn and tables to sit at and eat outdoors if you should so wish (weather permitting!).
As mentioned, we are particularly well placed for public transport. We are just one minute from the tube (subway) station.
The centre of Edgware is nearby with its shopping centre and other amenities.
We are opposite Canons Park, a beautiful park where you can enjoy the walks and the scenic views.

This room has two beds so would be suitable for one or two persons.

We can, if required, provide meals as an optional extra but otherwise we are happy to provide tea, coffee, etc at no charge.
Guests also have free use of washing machine and dryer (including soap powder) once a week but for additional use there is a charge of £5 per wash.

Please note that this is a family home and we are looking for guests who are comfortable in family surroundings. We have had the occasional guest who expects 5 star hotel quality. If you want perfection then please book into a 5 star hotel (and pay their rates!!)! However, I am pleased to say that the vast majority of our guests (from here and from other websites) have been very happy with their stay. I should also add that we welcome constructive comments as we are always striving to improve.

Please also note that we can only consider booking requests which are accompanied by profile and photo. We may ask to see ID upon arrival.

    It's a nice, clean house, about 40 minutes with the metro to the centre of london. Recommended!

    The place is perfectly located to walk London the whole day and to come back at night to rest at a very calm place with a fantastic view into the green when you wake up in the morning. And the London Tube is just around the corner - perfect!

    I enjoyed staying at phils house. The room and the house in general are really clean and comfortable. the room is exactly like on the photos. The house is only one minute from the tube station and in 20 minutes you can be in central london! So it is perfect for everyone who wants to explore london with a small budget. Phil was really friendly and did his best to make sure his guests felt welcome and comfortable.

    Phil and Aquilla were a delightful and gracious host family, making a lone traveller feel welcome in their home. We shared interesting, lively and varied conversations during lovely breakfasts overlooking their peaceful garden. Phil helped me plan my daily itinerary to ensure that I had a wonderful experience of London. Thank you both for your thoughtfulness.

Positiv: - Zentrale Lage, 10 min bis zur Underground Shoreditch High Street - Supermärkte und Läden in der Nähe - sehr einfache Schlüsselübergabe - ruhig gelegen Negativ: - Duschhahn konnte man nicht anbringen - Toilette, sowie Bettlaken verschmutzt - beschädigte Kleiderhaken im Schrank Insgesamt liegt die Wohnung sehr zentral in Shoreditch, man benötigt nur wenige min. zur Undergroundstation und Einkaufsläden sind schnell erreicht. Als wir in der Wohnung ankamen war die Toilette und unser Bettlaken stark verschmutzt. Außerdem war das falsche WIFI-Kennwort am Kühlschrank angebracht. Aus diesen Gründen riefen wir den Vermieter an, er nannte mir das Kennwort und sagte, dass jemand vorbeikommen wird um sich ein Bild von der Lage zu machen. Der Vermieter hat es nicht geschafft innerhalb von 5 Tagen uns ein neues Bettlaken zu bringen,und so haben wir die verschmutzte Stelle mit Handtüchern abgedeckt und so 4 Nächte auf einem dreckigen Bettlaken geschlafen.
from $60 per night

Everything was as described and actually we received even more than that (complimentary soaps, teas, and more.. ) Very professional to say the least. As already described by others, our host(s) drew us a map of the surrounding area and were in general very nice and helpful. 10/10 Will definitely stay there again. Thanks for the hospitality!

Je m'attendais à une chambre un peu plus grande car nous étions 3. Mais vu le rapport qualité pris cela me convient.
