The flat, which is very comfortable, has everything you need, including wireless Internet, a shared bathroom, kitchen, microwave, washing machine, fridge and a back garden. You also have your own key, so you can look your room.
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, responsible 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 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.

Reviews of this property
The room and the apartment are nice. It is a really good place to stay if you are on a budget. Close to tube. Sidney is friendly and super nice. On the last day when we had already checked out he called us to inform us that £500 had been found in our room. We hadn't even notice that we had left our money under the pillow. We were so happy. Thank you Sidney. We will recommend you.
Sidney was very professional and a nice host. It turned out that we needed to stay longer, and although he did not have any room he did find us alternative accommodation in another place. He was kind enough to give us a lift to the new place. The room itself was warm and quiet. The apartment has a large kitchen were you can also sit to eat breakfast. Kitchen, toilet and shower were all clean.
We had a nice time in London thanks to Sidney. It was straight forward to communicate with him and his information made it super easy to find the palace and check in. The apartment is in zone 2 and the tube and buses make it very easy to get to the centre.
Coming up from Gatwick was really easy - just go straight to London Bridge and then New Cross Gate on the train. The apartment is very close to the station, so getting to and from the centre was easy. There are many shops and places to eat in the area. The room itself was comfortable and warm and the bed was cosy. All other facilities were fine. We hope to come back when we next visit London.
We were happy with the room. Sidney greeted us and gave us lots of information about the city. The location is good because you have lots of buses to the centre, the train/tube station is near and there are lots of shops and pubs around.
The room was warm and quiet and the bed was comfortable. There was also a good internet connection. We slept well and made good use of the other facilities. The kitchen was large enough and had all we needed as we just wanted to make breakfast. The shower seemed new and was powerful and warm. The apartment itself is in a great location, as you are just two minutes from New Cross Gate Station, which take you directly to the centre in under 10 minutes. Sidney and the assistant were very welcoming and made us feel at home. The room was really cheap and we think that it is really good value.
Price-performance ratio is very good for London, as the location with good access to public transport. Practical, well-equipped kitchen. Very friendly, always approachable landlord.
Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist für Londoner Verhältnisse sehr gut, ebenso die Lage mit einer guten Anbindung an öffentliche Verkehrsmittel. Praktikable, gut ausgestattete Küche. Sehr freundliche, immer ansprechbare Vermieter.
The location of the apartment is great. Directly to an Overground station and even better, right outside a bus stop. It is therefore relatively easily at the center. There are also shops in the vicinity. The transfer has unfortunately does not work well with us, we never learned Sidney personally. The room is ok and sufficient. There is a large wardrobe and a small table and chair. The bed is big and comfortable. You can (with mattress on the floor) to sleep three in it. The bathroom is ok, the shower unfortunately very dirty (mold) and there is hardly any water. Often it was cold or lukewarm. The kitchen we have not used, but it was fine. Again, unfortunately, but some drawers are pulled out. Since we were out all day, the apartment was fine for us.
Die Lage der Wohnung ist super. Direkt an einer Overground-Station und noch besser: direkt vor der Tür eine Bushaltestelle. Man ist daher relativ schnell und einfach im Zentrum. Es gibt auch Einkaufsmöglichkeiten im direkten Umfeld.
Die Übergabe hat bei uns leider nicht so gut funktioniert, wir haben Sidney nie persönlich kennen gelernt.
Das Zimmer ist ok und völlig ausreichend. Es gibt einen großen Kleiderschrank und einen kleinen Tisch+Stuhl. Das Bett ist groß und bequem. Man kann (mit Matratze auf dem Boden) zu dritt darin schlafen.
Das Bad ist in Ordnung, die Dusche leider sehr schmutzig (Schimmel) und es kommt kaum Wasser. Oft war es auch kalt oder nur lauwarm.
Die Küche haben wir nicht benutzt, sie war aber in Ordnung. Auch hier sind aber leider einige Schubladen herausgerissen.
Da wir sowieso den ganzen Tag unterwegs waren, war die Wohnung für uns in Ordnung.
We enjoyed our stay in London very much. One of the reason was the wonderful accommodation. It was near a train station, and we could get there easily from Gatwick airport. The room was clean with window away from street. We had all what we needed. We liked, that because of the kitchen and the supermarket nearby we saved a lot of money. We were satisfy with our stay there and would recommend the place to our friends.
Only one thing: when you have problems with small rooms, you will not like the room with the shower. But when you just want a simple room for two, with good connection to the city, perhaps a kitchen for own cooking, is this accommodation perfect for you. Thank you for this wonderful vacation!
The room was perfectly fine. We were greeted very nicely! The location is good, because the bus / train and shops are just around the corner. :-)
Das Zimmer war vollkommen in Ordnung. Wir wurden sehr nett empfangen! Die Lage ist gut, da sich Bus/Bahn und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten direkt um die Ecke befinden. :-)
