The location is very convenient for Central London by train and all the restaurants, shops and bars of the High street. The apartment is an 8 minutes walk from East Croydon train station. The station provides access to Central London and Gatwick Airport within 15minutes. A regular bus outside the apartment offers easy acess to Heathrow airport. Croydon's Whitgift shopping Centre is just 10minutes walk away.
Lewisham is a suburb in South London. There are many train lines in the area, which gives you easy access to Central London. Many trains go to London Bridge station, which is a very popular area. It is the home to the famous food market Borough Market, and there are lots of bars and restaurants to enjoy.
Most attractions of London are within easy reach, such as Piccadilly Circus, Madame Tussauds and Tower of London. Hyde Park is located west of Oxford Street where you will find Kensington Gardens. If you walk through the park you will reach Kensington where you can find the famous department store Harrod’s and plenty of museums, for example Natural History museum and Science museum.
Greenwich is just around the corner from Lewisham and is famous for its maritime history and for giving its name to the Greenwich Meridian (0° longitude) and Greenwich Mean Time. Greenwich is very cosy and makes you feel like you are in a village rather than a big city. There are lots of little shops and a popular market during the weekends. The park in Greenwich is very enjoyable, and from the top of the hill you will see a panoramic view of London. Greenwich University’s main buildings are also situated in the park and are very impressive.

Had a excelent stay here , very clean and cozy.
The host cancelled the booking, this review is automated.
The accommodation is our rather disappointing: bald, neglected, ill-fitting doors and such no lock on toilet and bathroom. Well spacious, close to train station, but far from center. Not to be repeated.
De accommodatie is ons nogal tegengevallen: kaal, verwaarloosd, slecht sluitende deuren en bijvoorbeeld geen slot op wc en badkamer. Wel ruim, dicht bij treinstation, maar ver van centrum. Niet voor herhaling vatbaar.
Good transport links to London if they went fast trains. Wrong train took nearly one hour.
The apartment smells bad and there are moisture problems in the bathroom.
Everything is worn and a little dirty. The double bed was broken when we arrived and the shower did not work, but it was fixed quickly after mail contact. We got a completely different bed!
The washing machine worked very well.
Bra kommunikationer till London om man åkte de snabba tågen. Fel tåg tog närmare en timme.
Lägenheten luktar illa och det är fuktproblem i badrummet.
Allt är slitet och lite smutsigt. Dubbelsängen var trasig när vi kom och duschen fungerade inte, men det fixades snabbt efter mailkontakt. Vi fick en helt annan säng!
Tvättmaskinen funkade mycket bra.
Clean apartment and convenient place to stay. Have encountered some problem with the bathroom, but can get it fix after sending email. Quick response with telephone or email. Recommended to stay.
No problem about booking, payment, checkin/checkout, wi-fi, local shopping area and London connection. All have been ok and very easy to use.
Basically it was what we expected, just few notes: - An Apartment for 5/6 person should have at least 5/6 chairs and not just 4. Also, the table was just for 4, so was impossible have a dinner all together. - The bathtub was not so usefull and hot water was not always available... a shower could be much better. - Some awnings were broken, so they were not so easy to use. However, our target was visit London and we have had a very nice vacation.
Apartment clean and functional. Only the mattress of the adult room is very comfortable.
Appartement propre et fonctionnel. Seul le matelas de la chambre adulte est peu confortable.
We have not had the chance to meet our host, but a heating problem was quickly resolved by telephone. The apartment is right in the heart of London 1/2h in transit. Small problem though: he is praised by 6, but there is not enough crockery and the apartment has a small table and 4 chairs ...
Nous n'avons pas eu la chance de rencontrer notre hôte, mais un problème de chauffage s'est rapidement résolu par téléphone.
L'appartement est correct, à 1/2h du cœur de Londres en transport en commun. Petit bémol cependant: il est loué par 6, mais il n'y a pas assez de vaisselle et l'appartement ne compte qu'une petite table et 4 chaises...
Overall, the apartment for 6 people is definitely too small. The photos show images of 2 apartments in the house. Of these, only the most beautiful rooms. The apartment is well spent. Floor tiles are loose, kitchen is poorly equipped. There are hardly any dishes to supply themselves (no bowls, no coffee). Washing machine was abgeklempt and was only connected when telephoning again. Otherwise, the good transport links to London. Supermarket super.
Insgesamt ist die Wohnung für 6 Personen definitiv zu klein. Die Fotos zeigen Bilder von 2 Wohnungen im Haus. Davon jeweils nur die schönsten Zimmer. Die Wohnung ist sehr verlebt. Bodenfliesen sind lose, Küche ist schlecht ausgestattet. Es gibt kaum Geschirr um sich selber zu versorgen (keine Schüsseln, keine Kaffeemaschine).Waschmaschine war abgeklempt und wurde erst auf telefonische Nachfrage wieder angeschlossen. Ansonsten ist die Verkehrsanbindung nach London gut. Einkaufmöglichkeiten super.
Pros: well situated for exploring the city, housing a total clean and tidy, keys with key-safe very easily, suitable for 4 people, easily communicate with landlord via email. Cons: too small apartment for 6 people, sofa beds for 5th 6th person and very uncomfortable at the dinner table only fit max. 4 people, kitchen facilities inadequate (no way to cook coffee, no kettle for tea, etc., no dishes, no igniters for gas), water pressure is too low
Pro: Lage optimal für Ausflüge in die City, Wohnung insgesamt sauber und ordentlich, Schlüsselübergabe mit key-safe sehr unkompliziert, für 4 Personen gut geeignet, Kommunikation mit Vermieterin über E-Mail problemlos.
Contra: Wohnung für 6 Personen zu klein, Schlafsofas für 5. und 6.Person sehr unbequem, an den Esstisch passen nur max. 4 Personen, Küchenausstattung mangelhaft (keine Möglichkeit, Kaffe zu kochen, keine Kanne für Tee etc., keine Schüsseln, kein Anzünder für Gas), Wasserdruck zu niedrig
