Snug Room by the London Bridge

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.
The flat 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!
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 apartment is really convenient if you are visiting the Olympic games this summer. It is just 10 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.

Estuvimos muy agusto durante nuestra estancia. Todo estaba limpio y correcto.
La habitación olía a cerrado y había un radiador que goteaba y mojaba la moqueta pero por el resto todo perfecto. Bien situado, a 200m de la estación de tren. El propietario muy atento, nos dio buenas indicaciones.
Great for the price! Sidney seems to have many properties and was consistently the cheapest on wimdu! The communication and instructions were great. We were able to arrive late at night and used key codes to access the apartment, which was reassuring as waiting around for someone to show up is no fun. The apartment was simple yet clean and warm. The connection to the city was efficient and quick. If you are on a budget, this is your place!
After the last review we became a little anxious that the place was not going to be as we’d expected. However, we did have a really good time and thought that the flat was great. The bed was comfortable and seemed new (maybe the owner had replaced it since the last person’s complaint). The flat is located on a really nice street, which backs on to the Thames. You are basically on the otherside of Canary Wharf. We discovered that you can easily access the river by going out the back door.
Sidney was really helpful and came over to give us the remote for the garage, as we wanted to park our car.
We found the place to be peaceful with excellent connections to the central attractions.
We recommend this place for a short getaway in London!
The bed was comfy and the room was clean and as shown in the pictures. The transport links were excellent. Access was made easy by the use of key boxes, so we weren't under pressure to arrive at a certain time. Good stay!
Wir waren zu viert für 5 Übernachtungen in der Wohnung und es war für den Preis echt in Ordnung. Als wir morgens kamen, war es jedoch unaufgeräumt, aber abends war es aufgeräumt. Das Zimmer sieht auf den Bildern größer aus als es ist. Die Wände und Vorhänge sind nicht mehr grade so sauber und es insgesamt herunter gekommen. Es ist zwar relativ laut im Zimmer, aber wenn die Fenster über Nacht geschlossen sind, kann man gut schlafen. Der Raum mit der Toilette war in Ordnung und die Dusche war klein und nicht so sauber. Die Küche war okay. Was sehr gut an der Wohnung ist, ist die Lage. In ca 30 Minuten ist man mit dem Bus (der übrigens direkt vor der Haustür losfährt) am Big Ben und somit direkt in der Stadt. Auch nachts fahren Busse. Alles in allem würde ich die Wohnung denjenigen empfehlen, die nicht viel ausgeben wollen, keine hohen Ansprüche stellen, schnell in der Stadt sein wollen und an die Menschen, die viel unterwegs sind.
Lieben Gruß Julian :)
La habitación demasiado pequeña, eramos 3 , teníamos una cama grande y un colchón, si poníamos el colchón en el suelo, no podíamos estar de pie.
En el correo que me mandaron me ponía que había sala de estar y alí solo había una cocina en común.
El piso era muy viejo y había mucho olor a humedad, una parte del jardín de fuera estaba lleno de colchones , parecía un desguace.
Además el barrio no es bueno, el metro a partir de un horario no llega.
The room and everything around were ok for a shortbreak. The location, so close to the city was perfect, too.
everything ok only fridge in the kitchen not working
chambre très agréable, spacieuse pour 4. Salle de bain en mauvais état, pas propre. Principe de partage cuisine et salle de bain très bien. Globalement très bon séjour.
We spent three nights here. Although it was mostly as advertised (everything kind of worked, if you have the patience), I cannot recommend this place for a London stay.
First, you are not "on the river." You face a street with housing on the other side, and access to the river is kind of a joke, so don't be swayed by that part of the ad.
The flat is very, very sad and tired. The owner needs to replace the bedding and this cheap and gross couch. There is an even grosser cheap and gross wool blanket on this couch that servces as a cover, but I'd hesitate to let my dog sleep on it.
There is not a stick of artwork on the walls, giving it a "single lightbulb in the centre of the room" look. The oven was nearly impossible to figure out, and one of the radiators would not shut off even when you turned it off. We eventually got both appliances to work, but repeated phone calls to Sidney, our contact, for help were ignored. We never did hear back from her.
Oh -- and there's no hot water in the place after 10 a.m. My takeaway from our stay is the owner's a complete cheapstake....
Also, the area is purely residential, remote and boring. The nearest pub is winner (the Mayflower) but it's a considerable hike, and groceries are a full 20 minutes on foot -- as is the nearest Tube station.
If we paid half price, I'd be okay with this accommodation, but we paid full. The biggest joke was the tip jar.
I wouldn't want to call the property total crap -- more like the bare minimum -- but at this price, give it a pass.
Sidney, can you explain your lack of communication? Don't tell me I had the wrong number because I confirmed it with you by email before we left.
