Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The Quarters Kilburn Apartments is located in area which is available a variety of banks, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, Gym’s and shopping stores. I think so all what you need is available in that local area. Also, It has been located near to Paddington Recreation Ground (Gardens). All public transportations are available and near such as Kilburn overground, Kilburn park underground and buses. The Kilburn High Road is a bit crowded through the day but peaceful in the night.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The location is very great.

What is the best feature of your home:

Suitable area, clean, convenient color’s wall and safe.

Flat you’d expect in London

The building does what it is required to although falls into overpriced development area. The overall flat layout could be improved. The property itself is outdated. Furniture is outdated and dark making the flat feel crammed. The furniture is inappropriate to the scale of the flat and beaten up. The office chair cannot be placed under the desk. Kitchen is too small and the bathroom is too big. There is no storage for utilities. The entrance space would benefit from hooks for your bags and coat. The cleaning staff is nice and public areas are clean but maintenance is appalling. It takes weeks to get something sorted and emails sent are constantly ignored. Having flat near external lamp post flat would benefit from blackout blinds. Furniture that can be taken to the balcony would be ideal.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Its a bit too far from My work night tube is not available. The area is a bit dodgy I was once almost robbed in the local tesco. It is nicely located to some convenient food stores but I prefer maida vale and queens park for socializing

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The water pressure is pretty weak and boiler constantly runs out of hot water. Maintenance is difficult to teack

It is warm in winter. It feels very comfortable.

The building is quite nice:
Very safe as it has cameras in all common places, clear fire exists, fire extintors and blankets…
It is warm in winter. It feels very confortable.
You do not get to hear other neighbors noises…
It is very calm here and safe.

About the staff, they are all very kind and willing to solve all your problems. I can only have good words to them.

About facilities, there is a laundry room with washing machines that you need to pay for to use and dryers which are free to use. Also, you get the chance to hire room cleaning service.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

It is pretty close to the Bakerloo Line which brings you to the centre of London in 25 min. The street where is located is excellent in terms of supermarkets, shops, groceries, gyms… It might not be a very beautifuk street but it gathers all you need. Also, it is zone 2 of underground which is cheapest, thats a good thing too.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I did not expect it to be that safe with all cameras and card door opening system.
Also, i want to mark out how silence and calm the place is.
Just to name a bad thing i could not see is that washing machine costs 5 to 6 pounds per use

Great place for someone who is new to the city. Great facilities and responsive management.

Pros:
The Quarters Kilburn has been a great place to live these past 4 months. With lockdown there’s a low level of interaction but the manager Selna is so warm and welcoming. The maintenance team has also been pleasant and responsive. They even left a card and a delicious box of cookies at my door for Christmas which I really appreciated. They also put up nice decorations in the lobby for that time.

When I expressed interest in my flat, someone had been living here for 3 years prior and before I moved in, they did a very good job with the deep clean. I also got a brand new bed. They repainted the apartment and put in new floors and made sure it felt like new. So the facilities are quite good. Only thing I would beware of is the chair in the room isn’t made for long working sessions, gave me back pain so I bought a regular office chair since I’m working from home.

They take pride in the building maintenance. Since I’ve been here they’ve redone the carpets on all the floors. I’m on the fourth floor. They’ve done maintenance to the pipes in the apartments. The shared spaces, elevator, hallways, laundry room etc. are kept clean.

No issue with noise from neighbors or anything. People pretty much keep to themselves with the lockdown and everything.

Not all flats are the same. So some have balconies, some have bathtubs instead of showers. What you pay is dependent on how your flat is configured and what market rates are at the time.

They collect your packages and bring them upstairs as well depending on the time they arrive and if it’s during the week.

I’ve felt very safe here as well as someone who lives alone. There are cameras all over the building and swipe card access which only allows persons who live on your floor to access your floor. So that’s one of my favorite things about the building.

So in summary:
1. Good/pleasant staff
2. Prime location
3. Good facilities
4. Package collection
5. Good maintenance
6. Swipe card access and cameras. Safety mechanisms in the building.

Cons:

The hob provided is a single hob so if you love to cook you may need to invest in some additional cooking equipment. I got a ninja foodie so I’m able to deal with that.

The internet here i would give a rating of 85%. That’s because there are times where I’m on work calls on google meet with let’s say 2 other people and it goes to shit because they can’t hear me or I’m distorted and I end up calling in with my phone. It’s been suggested that I connect with an Ethernet port, so planning to try that. It’s paid internet for ask 4, so I guess you can always try another provider too.

If you want to get pets you’ll need permission and I believe there’s extra cost (for instance if you plan to get a dog they must be trained and have a walker, but that sort of thing takes time if you got a puppy, so not ideal) involved so that’s not ideal if you plan to do that.

1. Pricey parking
2. Internet can be shakey sometimes.
3. Pets are an additional cost/may be not allowed.
4. Will need extra kitchen appliance if one hob isn’t sufficient for you.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The location is excellent. You really can’t beat the proximity to so many supermarkets, restaurants, clothing stores and gyms. There’s 5 or more supermarkets within 7 minutes walk from here. There’s 2 gyms even though they’ve been closed due to lockdown. There’s primark argos a few of other high street stores nearby. Lots of fast food options too. The London overground is also super close by. Location for this place is super prime, very convenient. The parking here is paid however and pretty pricey. But I don’t have a car so I’ve been unaffected where that is concerned.

The area is quiet, I’ve been working from home and only had a disturbance one day because some work was being done. But you’re usually sent an email before to let you know work will be done in the building or in the area.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Wish I knew the “complimentary internet” didn’t mean internet was included in the rent. It just meant it was hooked up in the building but I still had to also pay for this. So I hadn’t factored this into the cost when making the decision.

What is the best feature of your home:

I like how everything in here was either new or up to a very high standard.

The concierge and team have been great but do seem to require one chase before things get done but they do have a large building to look after.

I decided to move here primarily for the great location. The Quarters is 5 minutes from the station and as my clients are based across the south it is very convenient – before I was living in Purley and had to travel to East Croydon to then travel back out. I had never lived in a new build development before but my manager and a colleague recommended I look at them because there are a number of new ones now completed in Croydon.

Bravo were really clever with their advertising as I actually found them on Spareroom. Other places I went to view had pictures of the flat that were clearly from years ago and not a good representation of what the flat was actually like. When I came to view The Quarters it looks exactly like the pictures and it was a really positive experience. On their website they have a 3D viewer which shows you the room and layout – this is also really accurate so you can see exactly how big the room is and my mum who lives abroad could see where I am living.

My previous landlord was not being helpful when it came to providing references and she was being tricky as she would only fill in part of the form. The team at Bravo were really understanding and went out of their way to help me, they were really human about it and actually care.

The concierge and team have been great but do seem to require one chase before things get done but they do have a large building to look after.

The room is quite small but the rent factors this in and is based on the room size and if you have a balcony. I wanted to rent a studio as I had had bad experiences before with housemates. I also think this is excellent value for money, it is close to the station, the place is clean and tidy, water electricity and WiFi are included in the bills.

I don’t know any of my neighbours – other than someone I helped carry some things for – and there aren’t any community events but I probably wouldn’t go anyway. Most people living here are young professionals and keep to themselves and are quiet.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The fact there is no park nearby is my only dislike. Travel is really convenient and Box Park is 3 minutes away with lots of food options and there always seems to be people drinking and socialising there with loud music. There are lots of places to eat, a bank and big shopping centre nearby. We are meant to have 24 hour security, though I never see them but I do feel safe here

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

You can’t really modify the room. The tables are fixed and the bed is big so you can’t move it – so all the places here end up looking the same. I would like to put up posters but I am not allowed to and there are three pictures on the wall that I am not allowed to take down!
