The flat is 200 meters from New Cross Gate 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). There are also numerous buses, which pass the flat 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 and very respectful of one another. I believe that they have all enjoyed their stay. The apartment is maintained 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, a big supermarket (Sainsbury’s) and bars all within walking distance to 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 apartment is really convenient if you are visiting the Olympic games this summer. It is just 20 minutes by bus to Greenwich were a number of events are taking place, and just 20 minutes to the stadium at Stratford, via the Overground and Jubilee Line.

Meanwhile, I have found that the standard of hotels / rooms / hostels in London with our Standard (Austria) are. It really is not so bad, is just that. But when I arrived at the booked apartment from me, was my heart silently for a while. Even the rise / disposal to the basement were very dirty and covered with garbage. In the front yard were old, used, dirty mattresses and even the Christmas tree of Christmas +++++. When we got to the front door, came to meet us a very strict urine odor. Well just thought outside the Pooh and Hui inside !!! But it got even better / worse.
We went to the booked apartment, entered, found a single room for three of us (with under aged child on the way) - but not their own apartment for us. The room had a size of max. 2 x 2 m, as lighting a light bulb, the part of the door, in which should be a glass was glued a cardboard spartan, they also showed Klussen right and left, the beds (a double bed) was not done, it refused to the wall still two mattresses, which meant one of us had three on the ground to sleep, the window did not properly closing, the toilet was .............. I do not use an exact description here at this point, in another room've been two. and and and and ...........
Mittlerweile habe ich herausgefunden, dass die Standards der Hotels/Zimmer/Hostels in London unter unserem Standard (Österreich) liegen. Ist ja auch nicht so schlimm, ist halt so. Aber als ich zu dem von mir gebuchten Appartment kam, stand mir das Herz für eine Weile still. Schon der Aufgang/Abgang zum Keller waren stark verschmutzt und mit Müll bedeckt. Im Vorgarten lagen alte, gebrauchte, schmutzige Matratzen und auch noch der Christbaum von Weihnachten +++++. Als wir zum Hauseingang kamen, kam uns ein sehr strenger Uringeruch entgegen. Na ja dachte halt außen pfui und innen hui!!! Aber es kam noch besser/schlimmer.
Wir gingen zum gebuchten Appartement, traten ein, fanden ein einziges Zimmer für uns drei (mit minderjährigem Kind unterwegs) - nicht aber eine eigene Wohnung für uns. Das Zimmer hatte ein Ausmaß von max. 2 x 2 m, als Beleuchtung eine Glühbirne, der Teil der Türe, in der ein Glas sein sollte, war ein Karton spartanisch eingeklebt, sie zeigte auch Klussen rechts und links, die Betten (das Doppelbett) war noch nicht gemacht, es lehnten an der Wand noch zwei Matratzen, das hieß, einer von uns drei musste am Boden schlafen, das Fenster ging nicht richtig zum Schließen, das WC war .............. ich verzichte auf eine genaue Beschreibung hier an dieser Stelle, in einem anderen Zimmer sind schon zwei gewesen. und und und und ...........
The apartment is well to do for a few days. We were six of us and then do it right. Unfortunately, we have missed some things in the kitchen. That has not been set for 6 people. Sydney is a friendly guy and did bring a coffeepot because there was no koffieapperaat present.
het appartement is goed te doen voor een paar dagen. Wij waren met ons zessen en dan is het net te doen. Helaas misten we wel het een en ander in de keuken. Dat is niet ingesteld voor met 6 personen. Sydney is een vriendelijke jongen en kwam een koffiekan brengen, want er was geen koffieapperaat aanwezig.
The host cancelled the booking, this review is automated.
Room, kitchen, shower, toilet are ok
The address was difficult to find, no one knew the house.
It is right at a major bus stop, about New Cross Road 220th
Zimmer, Küche, Dusche, WC sind ok
Die Adresse war schwierig zu finden, keiner kannte das Haus.
Es liegt direkt bei einer grossen Bushaltestelle, ungefähr New Cross Road 220.
Before arrival: communication worked well, however, it can take some time until you receive an answer, so just take your time and do not talk about essential details the day before your arrival. From Victoria Coach station, it takes you 30 min to get to the house. It's located in zone 2.
Arrival: worked very well. www.tfl.gov.uk comes in very handy when looking for ways to get to the house. By overground, you get to London Bridge Station (Tower Bridge) within 7 minutes. And: Get an oyster card! You'll need it.
Accomodation: The room, of course, is not too big, but, it was clean and more than sufficient for our three-day-trip to London. The bathroom and toilets are clean, too.
Host: Sidney is a good host and tries to help you whenever he can.
Positive: very economical price. A 15 minute subway ride from downtown and 15 minutes walk from the charming town of Greenwich.
There are shops near the house (especially a butcher preparing meat pies incredible and hilarious vintage pub "Vinyl".
NEGATIVE: poor cleaning. No towels. Unlocked bathroom and a toilet for sharing with 4 rooms. The paint on the walls dirty.
We've had a great time in London but I think Sydney should take better care of hygiene and details of the apartment and would greatly improve the feel of visitors.
En positivo : Precio muy económico. A 15 minutos en metro del centro y a 15 minutos a pie del precioso pueblo de Greenwich .
Hay tiendas cerca de la casa ( en especial una carnicería que prepara pasteles de carne increibles y un pub vintage divertidísimo " Vinyl ".
En NEGATIVO : Limpieza escasa . Sin toallas . Un baño sin cerrojo y un water para compartir las 4 habitaciones . La pintura de las paredes sucia .
Lo hemos pasado muy bien en Londres pero creo que Sidney debiera cuidar más la higiene y los detalles del apartamento y mejoraría mucho la sensación de los visitantes.
It is clear that we must not have any great expectations when booking through Wimdu. There are now out my hotel. I was with my girlfriend in London and we enjoyed the hotel very much. It was all necessary equipment, also we were out all day anyway. To Overground station to get very quickly on foot, the Directions to hotel was very helpful. The Overground it takes only 1-2 stops to the Jubilee Line Underground and is therefore quite fast in the first sights.
Mr. Sidney we have seen only once. A very friendly and cool young man. A supermarket and nice pub with lots of young people (students) is also around the corner. At first we were concerning. The area where a bit skeptical, but were quickly released from our skepticism. Quieter than thought and nice helpful neighbors.
A few drawbacks, however, there still. The mattress was very saggy in our room. Under the bed was indeed to find a second, but that seemed a bit too small. The building is also very noisy. Do not interfere, but can, if you're sensitive. The bathroom also had stains on the ceiling, am sure if the mold was not.
Otherwise, it was neat and clean.
We would book the hotel again and recommend it therefore continues.
Klar ist, dass man beim Buchen über WIMDU keine großen Ansprüche haben darf. Es sind nun mal meine Hotels. Ich war mit meiner Freundin in London und uns hat die Unterkunft sehr gefallen. Es war alles nötige vorhanden, außerdem waren wir ohnehin den ganzen Tag unterwegs. Zur Overground Station kommt man sehr schnell zu Fuß, auch die Wegbeschreibung zur Unterkunft war sehr hilfreich. Mit der Overground fährt man nur 1-2 Stationen zur Jubilee Linie der Underground und ist somit recht schnell an den ersten Sehenswürdigkeiten.
Mr. Sidney haben wir nur ein Mal gesehen. Ein sehr freundlicher und cooler junger Mann. Ein Supermarkt und netter Pub mit vielen jungen Leuten (Studenten) ist auch um die Ecke. Anfangs waren wir bzgl. der Gegend dort ein wenig skeptisch, wurden allerdings schnell von unserer Skepsis befreit. Ruhiger als gedacht und nette hilfsbereite Anwohner.
Ein paar Nachteile gibt es allerdings trotzdem. Die Matratze war in unserem Zimmer sehr durchgelegen. Unterm Bett war zwar eine zweite zu finden, die allerdings etwas zu klein schien. Das Haus ist außerdem sehr hellhörig. Muss nicht stören, kann aber, wenn man empfindlich ist. Im Badezimmer waren außerdem Flecken an der Decke, bin mir nicht sicher ob das Schimmel war.
Ansonsten war es ordentlich und sauber.
Wir würden die Unterkunft erneut buchen und empfehlen sie deshalb weiter.
The apartment is very near the new cross tube station in Zone 2. In just two seasons and catch the Water canada station that picking the Jubilee Line takes 10 minutes to central London. The area of the apartment is very quiet despite being in an apartment on the ground floor. The supermarket is a bit far, about 500 mts. The apartment is equipped with the necessary equipment if you are having a meal. a double bed and two mattresses beds that can be put together in the room. During the time I was in London I saw the owner. But it was also not necessary. All instructions were correct. Good option for those who just want the apartment to sleep.
O apartamento é muito perto da estação de metro de new cross, na zona 2. Em apenas 2 estações e apanha a estação de canada Water que apanhando a Jubilee Line leva 10 minutos ao centro de Londres. A zona do apartamento é muito sossegada apesar do apartamento ser num rés do chão. O supermercado fica um pouco distante, cerca de 500 mts. O apartamento esta equipado com o equipamento necessário se tiver que fazer uma refeição. uma cama de casal e 2 camas colchoes que se podem montar na sala. Durante o tempo que estive em londres não vi o proprietário. Mas também não foi necessário. Todas as instruções dadas estavam corretas. Boa opção para quem só quiser o apartamento para dormir.
Horrible. Later lost in London and escape the apartment. We had to find alternative accommodation for the delayed response as Sydney. If not for a tenant who happened to be in the apartment, we could not enter. Sidney erroneous instructions. The incomplete set of keys from the apartment. Without sheets without notice. Clogged sink.
Horrible. Tarde perdida en Londres y huída del apartamento. Tuvimos que buscar otro alojamiento por la respuesta tan tardía de Sidney. Si no es por un inquilino que casualmente se encontraba en el apartamento, no hubiéramos podido entrar. Las instrucciones de Sidney erróneas. El juego de llaves del apartamento incompleto. Sin sábanas sin previo aviso. El fregadero obturado.
The apartment is exactly like the presentation! Very happy to have quickly found favor with the indications of Sidney! It is a host available to answer your questions if you need help. Moreover, what a surprise to find that a bus right outside the door takes us to London Bridge! :)
Small bathroom but it's actually just a detail!

L'appartement est exactement comme la présentation! Très heureuse de l'avoir facilement et rapidement trouvé grâce aux indications de Sidney!

Petite salle de bain effectivement mais ce n'est qu'un détail!
