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.

I had a nice stay in London with my kids. Sidney was very kind and alway available for questions (regarding the appartment, public transportation, the city of London, etc). There is a bus station directly in front of the house. The bus bring you directly to the city centre.
Sidney is very nice and attentive, the place is perfectly located and affordable.
I'll definitely come again.
Just one thing : the room miss a table lamp to make it cozy at night, the bed with the head so close to the heater is not a good idea. But hey it's constructive feedback because everything was nice even the most tiny shower I've ever seen ;)
Accommodation is satisfactory.
There is just one small problem.
The keys are hard to recover.
we believe we should review the key procurement method.
Otherwise all in all, the apartment is clean and well located for the center of London.
L'hébergement est satisfaisant.
Il y a juste un petit hic.
Les clés sont dur à récupérer.
nous pensons qu'il faut revoir la méthode de passation des clés.
Sinon dans l'ensemble, l'appartement est propre et bien situé par rapport au centre de Londres.
I can only recommend all the accommodation if you do not go on vacation to stay in his room. The rooms are clean and the possibility to use the kitchen very important (England is really expensive). I with my mistress thought about to fly back next year.
Ich kann allen nur die Unterkunft empfehlen wenn man nicht in Urlaub fährt um in seinem Zimmer zu wohnen . Die Räumlichkeiten sind sauber und die Möglichkeit die Küche zu nutzen ist sehr sehr wichtig ( England ist richtig teuer) . Ich hab mit meinem Frauchen schon überlegt nächstes Jahr wieder zu fliegen .
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Everything as expected, but there was only one bathroom for the whole house we had no problem. Everything clean and ordenado.No is next to London Bridge as the description says but does not take anything to get downtown
The worst was that Sidney gave information to get the keys and other barely 9h before catching the plane and even sent him messages Wimdu therefore as their number did not answer me, which made we got to look for cheap hostels case. Finally he gave the instructions and everything was as expected.
Todo como lo esperaba, aunque había un solo baño para toda la casa no hemos tenido problema. Todo limpio y ordenado.No está al lado de London Bridge como dice la descripción pero no se tarda nada en llegar al centro
Lo peor ha sido que Sidney nos dio la información para conseguir las llaves y demás a penas 9h antes de coger el avión y aunque le mandaba mensajes tanto por Wimdu como a su numero no me contestaba, lo cual hizo que llegáramos a mirar hostales baratos por si acaso. Finalmente nos dio las instrucciones y todo fue como esperaba.
Sidney allowed me to book at really short notice. He really saved my life! I was able to call him straight away and get into the property. The process was really organised. The apartment is well placed and well connected. For sure I'll use again!
This was our very first experience with wimdu and I can say that it was really positive. Sidney is very friendly, helpful and welcoming to his lovely apartment. It is exactly as in the pictures and description and close enough to the tube station. It's a quiet place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. The view of Canary Wharf from the lounge is beautiful. I would recommend Sidney and his apartment to anyone.
THANK YOU SIDNEY!!
The room was for our purposes in order, as we did not spend much time in it and always were very tired when we came back in the evening. But as the Internet site, the room was not. The photo is deceptive total. The room was old and in fragile condition. The wall had cracks and the window was not close, so it has always drawn in the room and it was very cold at night. Shower and toilet were fine, they just had to share with three other parties. I personally did not mind, but others do not like it already when you come out of the shower and someone stands in front of a complete stranger. Also, I had booked for 4 people but there were only three blankets available so had to sleep without a blanket. So I sacrificed myself and slept with full clothes. Not just beautiful. I have also expected at 4 persons booked and 4 beds are available, however, there was only a medium-sized double bed and 2 mattresses, so had to sleep 2 of us on an old mattress on the floor. The only positive was the city location. But in 7 minutes, as indicated on the Internet, it was still not to create. On the whole, it was a disappointment. I will the next time think carefully about it, if I would book again through Wimdu.
Das Zimmer war für unsere Zwecke in Ordnung, da wir nicht viel zeit darin verbracht haben und immer sehr müde waren als wir abends hin kamen. Aber so wie im Internet angegeben, war das Zimmer nicht. Das Foto täuscht total. Das Zimmer war alt und in brüchigem Zustand. Die Wand hatte Risse und das Fenster war nicht dicht, sodass es im Zimmer immer gezogen hat und es in der Nacht sehr kalt war. Dusche und Toilette waren in Ordnung, man musste sie nur mit drei weiteren Parteien teilen. Mich persönlich hat das nicht gestört, aber andere stört es schon, wenn man aus der Dusche kommt und jemand wildfremder steht vor einem. Außerdem hatte ich für 4 Personen gebucht, es waren aber nur drei Decken vorhanden, sodass einer ohne Decke schlafen musste. So habe ich mich geopfert und mit voller Kleidung geschlafen. Nicht gerade schön. Ich habe mir außerdem erwartet, dass bei 4 gebuchten Personen auch 4 Betten vorhanden sind, jedoch gab es nur ein mittelgroßes Doppelbett und 2 Matratzen, sodass 2 von uns auf einer alten Matratze auf dem Boden schlafen mussten. Das einzig positive war die stadtnahe Lage. Aber in 7 Minuten, wie im Internet angegeben, war es trotzdem nicht zu schaffen. Im großen und ganzen war es eine Enttäuschung. Ich werde mir das nächste mal genau überlegen, ob ich noch einmal über Wimdu buchen würde.
One of our best experiences and I would definitely recommend to stay with Sidney. A really lovely guy and he even offered us some of of his granny's home made cake. He was very welcoming and chatty. It was really easy to get to the centre too!
Thanks Sidney. Can't wait to visit London again.
