Welcome to Kilburn!
The room is in a great area (25 minutes from Oxford St) with some really good local venues, too: The Tricycle Theatre, Ariana II (best Afghan food going!), The Black Lion & North London Tavern.
Kilburn Station (Jubilee Line) and Brondesbury Station (Overground) are just at the end of the road, which makes access round London really easy.
Finally, the balcony is an awesome place to chill in the summer with views into central London, including the London Eye.
