One stop from London Bridge, this room is normally a twin but we can also put in extra mattresses and accommodate up to four people.

The flat, which is very comfortable, has everything you need, including wireless Internet, a shared bathroom, kitchen, microwave, fridge and parking. You also have your own key, so you can lock your room.

The place is about 400 meters from New Cross Station, which gives you access to the Overground and the mainline railway (Note: the Overground is connected to the tube/underground - it just runs over ground - all tickets are valid). Deptford Bridge Station is even closer. From here the DLR (Docklands Light Railway) will take you to Greenwhich and Canary Wharf.

There are also numerous buses, which pass New Cross Road and go straight to central London, including several night buses, so you can always get home no matter what time of night! You can be in Trafalgar Square (by train) in just 15 minutes. The vibrant and eclectic area of Shoreditch is also just 15 minutes on the Overground. The location is ideal for any tourist or person working in central London!

So far all the guests in the flat have been very nice, interesting, responsible and very respectful of one another. I believe that they have all enjoyed their stay. The apartment is maintain daily to a high standard.

In the local area you will find everything you need for a great stay; there are 24 hour food shops, cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, bars and the famous Deptford Market all within walking distance of the flat. The flat is very close to Goldsmith University campus, so could be an ideal base if you are visiting the university for a conference.

The communication worked great before, but unfortunately on arrival has not worked. It has been said that we find a combination lock where we sollen..aber enter the code that did not exist unfortunately. thank god we have encountered after 20min 2 girls who had rented an apartment next door and who first let us through the inner door, finally we have reached someone on the phone who then opened our door to our apartments. The apartment was as far as "clean" only the bathroom not properly come very down and hygienic. yet enough the apartment for a maximum of 2 nights, you can of course do not have high claims.

Good and bad things about the room.

Firstly - the room itself is basic but everything you need - 2 twin beds, enough space, very fast internet access which was excellent. The kitchen had everything you needed - but was small and shared with other people - which was fine. The bathroom was clean - a cleaner came every day to take out the rubbish.

Cons about the room - the apartment is in "Lewisham Estates" - I am fairly sure it used to be (and maybe still is) housing estates. The neighbourhood was okay... but we could often hear people yelling at each other having fights and also people having sex. The walls were thin.

I had emailed Sidney 3 days before our arrival confirming he would be there to meet us. He didn't reply until 3am the morning we arrived (we were arriving from Australia at 10am) with instructions on how to get into the apartment. So when we got there, found the apartment in this old weird building, he wasn't there, I didn't have the email as we had been flying and didn't have internet access before we got there, and the only people there were some Spanish girls who were staying in another room in the apartment next door. Sidney didn't answer texts or phone calls. Eventually we found another resident who helped us but I think it was quite unsatisfactory that this was done so badly. While we stayed 3 girls stayed in another room in the apartment and they said exactly the same thing happened to them.

Sidney has a lot of rooms in the same building which he rents out to foreigners - I think he should manage them a little bit better because this is effectively his job...

Overall, the room is what it is - basic, but clean, it's what you need and was a very good price. I don't know that I would stay there again though. It's "10 minutes to London Bridge" on the overground which is quite expensive (up to 5 pounds per trip depending on the time of day) which means that what you save for the room you spend a bit of on transport anyway. It's pretty much hostel type accommodation so you might be better off going with a hostel closer to the city for slightly more money.

Sidney ist ein sehr freundlicher und aufmerksamer Vermieter, netter Kerl. Das Zimmer ist ok, hat allerdings einige Einschränkungen, die man wissen sollte. Es liegt direkt an einer Bahnlinie, daher die gute Anbindung an die U-Bahn-Station "New Cross", Küche und Bad sind stark renovierungsbedürftig. Für absolut pingelige Menschen nicht geeignet.

Sidney was really nice and helpful for the short time that we saw him. The apartment itself could do with some renovating. For a short trip to London it was okay.

Zimmer in einer Ferienwohnung. Zentral zu U-Bahn, Bus und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gelegen. Sehr laut, unbequeme Betten, Küche und Bad renovierungsbedürftig. Schimmel im Bad, Temperatur bei der Dusche nicht regelbar, entweder eiskalt oder kochend. Kühlschrank und Kochgelegenheit vorhanden und funktionstüchtig. Erhebliche Probleme beim Check In, da niemand da und telefonisch nicht erreichbar. Insgesamt nicht nochmal.

personne pour nous accueillir à notre arrivée .pas les bonnes clés pour accéder à l'appartement et donc à la chambre et personne joignable par téléphone!! (il a fallu escalader et passer par la fenêtre de la salle de bain heureusement ouverte pour accéder à notre chambre et récupérer notre jeu de clés) De plus la chambre était vraiment trop petite pour 4 personnes.

Era bastante lejos del centro pero estaba muy buen cuidado el apartamento, tiene cocina compartida con todas las comodidades, todo muy limpio y prolijo. Nuestra estadía fue muy agradable, lo recomendamos.

June 2014

Im großen und ganzen OK.

Die Zimmer wirken auf den Bildern größer, als sie es in wirklichkeit sind, etwas staubig ist es auch aber wenn man den ganzen Tag unterwegs ist und nur zum Schlafen da ist, ist es vollkommend ausreichend.
Es sind drei Zimmer in der Wohnung, dementsprechend voll ist morgens das Badezimmer.

Sidney ist sehr hilfsbereit und ist auch kurzfristig erreichbar.
Das Ein- und Auschecken war problemlos.
Gepäck kann am Abreisetag in der Wohnung gelassen werden, allerdings nicht im abgeschlossenem Zimmer.

For the price we paid we were very happy:
Close enough to the tube.
Close to shops.
Simple, but decorated nicely.
