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.

Reviews of this property
Sidney was seriously fantastic! He was really prompt in returning emails before and during the stay. He provided Great recommendations for places to go and made himself available for any questions during our stay. The apartment was clean and in a great location close to transport, making it easy to get to London Bridge and Big Ben. There are enough shops around by the apartment and we went to some great pubs in the local area.
The room was massive and the apartment had all we needed for our short stay. Transport connections were fantastic, as there were buses running from outside the apartment and the station was only a few minutes away. Having a really large supermarket so close by was also a good point. The area has many pubs, places to eat and 24 hour shops. The host was friendly and welcoming.
The place is good to stay quite cheap in London. The room was clean but not very comfortable. We had an appointment with Sidney but when we arrived he didn't came. The place is ok, when you can arrange with simple accomodation.
The best thing about the apartment is the location. She can be reached from Gatwick Airport, directly linked to the railway line "Southern"!, Convenient features include the buses (24 per day), the drive off outside the front door, especially directly to the west of London, such as Westminster (approx. 40 min) or directly to Madame Tussauds (journey time 1 hour) and Picadally Circus (for example, in the evening after the theater, 45 min). The East is open to the "Overground". The apartment itself is a bit worn. (Reminiscent of a dormitory of 90 acetic years), mold in the shower, a towel in the kitchen, no coffee there. We were 4 in the Presidential Suite, a double bed with a blanket and he 2 2 mattresses on the floor. Noise from road side (permanent traffic 24 hours a day, including sirens of rescue, police ....) and very leaky windows. The courtyard with lawn would be very nice in itself - in good weather. The supermarket nearby is also very good. Washing machine available, but there is overall lack of space. Wifi does not work often, the TV also did not work. Overall, the great location (though longer distances) 3 of 5 stars. London Bridge is not as close as it appears. (Thought I already but when looking at the city map).
Das beste an der Wohnung ist die Lage. Sie ist vom Flughafen Gatwick direkt mit der Bahnlinie "Southern" zu erreichen!!!, Praktisch sind auch die Busse (24h pro Tag), die vor der Haustüre wegfahren, insbes. direkt in den Westen Londons, z.B. Westminster (Fahrzeit ca. 40 min) oder auch direkt zu Mme Tussauds (Fahrzeit 1h) und Picadally Circus (z.b. für abends nach dem Theaterbesuch, 45 min). Der Osten ist mit der "Overground" zu erschließen.
Die Wohnung selbst ist etwas abgewohnt. (erinnert an ein Studentenheim der 90 iger Jahre), Schimmel in der Dusche, kein Geschirrtuch in der Küche, keine Kaffeemaschine dort. Wir waren zu 4 in der Presidential Suite, ein Doppelbett mit einer 2 er Decke und 2 Matratzen am Boden. Lärmbelästigung durch Straßenseite (permanenter Verkehr, 24h am Tag inkl. Sirenen der Rettung, Polizei....) und sehr undichte Fenster.
Der Innenhof mit Wiese wäre an sich sehr nett--bei gutem Wetter. Der Supermarkt in der Nähe ist auch sehr gut. Waschmaschine vorhanden, es herrscht jedoch Platzmangel insgesamt gesehen. Wifi geht oft nicht, der Fernseher funktionierte ebenfalls nicht.
Insgesamt durch die Super Lage (wenn auch weitere Entfernungen) 3 von 5 Sternen. Die London Bridge ist nicht so in der Nähe wie es den Anschein hat. (Dachte ich mir aber schon beim Betrachten des Stadtplanes).
Me and my friend had an excellent time here. The other occupants was really nice and if we had any questions the answers were always only a phonecall away. Even though it is located a bit from the places that we usually visited, like Oxford street, the nearest overground station was only about 200 meters away so there was no problem moving around London. The apartment had everything we needed for our week long stay and I say we got our moneys worth.
Thank you for having us Sidney and we will try to book a room with you next time we're in London.
The room is adequate, bathroom and shower are small but clean. The house is located on a busy street. Since the room is down the street, it was quite noisy at night. The plot itself and the neighboring houses are pretty trashy - unfortunately. But metro and bus links to the city center are good. Total price performance for a large city is still okay - if you want to stay a few days and not very picky. Sidney and Eddie the janitor are in order.
Das Zimmer ist ausreichend, Bad und Dusche sind klein, aber sauber. Das Haus liegt direkt an einer vielbefahrenen Straße. Da das Zimmer zur Straße hin zeigt, war es auch nachts relativ laut. Das Grundstück selber und die Nachbarhäuser sind ziemlich vermüllt - leider. U-Bahn und Busanbindung an die Innenstadt sind aber gut. Insgesamt ist Preis-Leistung für eine Großstadt noch okay - wenn man nur einige Tage bleiben will und nicht sehr wählerisch ist. Sidney und Eddi der Hausmeister sind in Ordnung.
The apartment is located just outside of the center - about 30 minutes by bus you are in the heart of London. The bus stop is right outside the house. This is on the one hand very practical - on the other hand also a disadvantage, because the room is right for vielbefahrenden street. It herrsscht a corresponding noise. The room was clean, broken TV, shower mediocre, as it could be bad and adjust the water jet was more of a trickle. Kitchen was adequate with microwave, electric stove and a private refrigerator compartment. - Supermarket - was just near the hotel. I only had 2 nights booked - that's it OK but would not want to spend a long stay there. Bottom line, you must also always price / performance rate - by London standards I have stayed low.
Die Wohnung liegt etwas ausserhalb des Centrums - in etwa 30 Minuten Busfahrt ist man im Herzen Londons. Die Bushaltestelle ist direkt vor dem Haus. Das ist auf der einen Seite sehr praktisch - andererseits aber auch von Nachteil, weil das Zimmer direkt zur vielbefahrenden Strasse liegt. Es herrsscht eine entsprechende Geräuschkulisse. Das Zimmer war sauber, TV defekt, Dusche mittelmäßig,da sie sich schlecht einstellen ließ und der Wasserstrahl eher ein Rinnsal war. Küche war mit Mikrowelle, E-Herd und eigenem Kühlfach ausreichend. - Supermarkt - war fußläufig schnell erreichbar. Ich hatte nur 2 Übernachtungen gebucht - dafür wars OK- würde allerdings längere Aufenthalte dort nicht verbringen wollen. Unterm Strich muss man ja auch immer Preis/Leistung bewerten - für Londoner Verhältnisse habe ich günstig übernachtet.
We were a party of 5 people. 3 adults and 2 teenager staying in 2 of Sidneys rooms.
Sidney was very helpful.
The other guests was nice and it was a friendly athmosphere.
It was quiet during nights which gave us good nights of sleep so we could manage beeing tourists in London during days.
Public transport was very easy from the apartment to central parts of London.
I recommend Sidneys place for budget travelers!
This property is ideally located, bus stops just outside the apartment, 3 minutes walk to station, supermarket shop and snack bar also. Sanitary ware, toilet, and kitchen are regularly maintained, the rooms are propres.Seul small problem, the room overlooking the street is very noisy. The host is correct, moreover, kate who lives on site and always available to inform us good address
