Reviews of this property
Room was ok, but transport connections were great. Very easy to get to main tourist attractions. If you need just a place to stay for a night and spend all day in the town - this is good choice.
Das eizige Highlight war die Bushaltestelle vor der Tür: mit dem Bus 453 erreicht man sehr entspannt in ca. 30 min das Stadtzentrum; mit dem Bus 177 in andere Richtung ist man in ca. 12 min in Greenwich. Die versprochenen 7 min sind höchstens mit einem Helicopter denkbar.
1. Es stand nirgendwo in Beschreibung dass das einzige Badezimmer mit weiteren 4 Gästezimmer (bis zu 15 Gäste) geteilt wird. Keine Kleiderhacken, Klo-Deckel lose, Sauberkeit läßt sich wünschen.
2. Unseres Zimmer war nicht mal 12 m2 wie beschrieben. Wir konnten uns dort zu dritt kaum bewegen. Geschweige die spartanische Ausstattung.
3. WiFi war gar nicht verfügbar
4. Erst kurz vor Anreise hat Sidney uns informiert dass die Tucher extra zu bezahlen sind (£2 pro Tuch)
Zugegeben, es war für Londoner Verhältnisse günstige Unterkunft, rückwirkend betrachtet hätte ich lieber etwas mehr ausgegeben...
Although I enjoyed my stay in London I have to say that I wasn't very happy about the flat.
When we arrived the room wasnt made up and although they tell you in advance that this would probably happen was really anoying arriving to a dirty and smelly room. Around 3pm the room wasnt clean still. So we had to leave again and comming back around 7pm. What was pretty late after the whole day travelling.
Appart from that the wifi network didnt work and I had to call the host 4 times until they fixed it.
In addition, the rooms didnt have any been, you have to pay for towels...
What is true is that you are just in front of many different transports.
Camera carina, posizione ottima vicino alla stazione New Cross Gate e fermata bus sotto casa, in pochi minuti si raggiunge il centro. L'alloggio è pulito, la cucina ben fornita e il bagno spazioso, internet veloce ma il riscaldamento in camera non funzionava (per fortuna non c'era tanto freddo). Ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo, in generale consigliatissimo.
London mag nicht billig sein, aber ein stark verschmutztes Bad in dem die Dusche nicht wirklich funktioniert (kaum Wasser und nicht einstellbare Temperatur entweder kochend Heiss oder Kalt, Seitenverkleidung der Badewanne ist aufgequollen und löst sich - steht ab) oder eine Matratze die schon lange ersetzt sein sollte (einzelne Federn drücken nach oben durch) oder das im langen Flur nur eine von zwei Lampen eine Birne besitzt oder das Zimmer sehr schmutzig ist von der Küche ganz zu schweigen. Das gehört sich nicht.
It was not a good experience for us.
The kitchen was quite clean but there were not enough pots to cook.
The bathroom was awfully dusty. The floor seemed to not be cleaned every day and the bathmat remained the same our all stay.
The doors make too much noise, especially when people open it in the middle of the night.
We were in a room with windows giving on the corridor and when the lights were on it lighted the whole room up, not very comfy at 3 in the morning.
The mattress was very thin and some springs got out of the bed hurting our legs.
We had a lovely stay in Sidney's room. The room was neat and warm. Internet was good. Although it's a shared accommodation there were no other people in the other rooms during our stay. The bus stop is outside and we were able to get very quickly to the centre. The tube station is also just about 3 minute away. We enjoyed our stay in Sidney's room.
We didn't see Sidney too much but he was there to advise us on going out and visiting great spots in London. The appartement was exactly like the photographs. We had really nice trip.
