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.

sono stata abbastanza soddisfatta della scelta fatta perchè avendo pagato un prezzo medio-basso non mi aspettavo certo il confort di un hotel, la camera abbastanza pulita (anche se per igiene personale ho portato lenzuola da casa mia!) bagno e cucina condivisi ma utilizzabili facilmente grazie anche a dei coinquilini gradevoli. L'unico aspetto negativo la possibilità di contattare Sidney,la proprietaria, quando ho avuto difficoltà con la porta di ingresso che si era rotta. Chiamandola al suo numero personale non mi ha risposto lei ma altra persona...che non si è preoccupata di venire a vedere cosa fosse accaduto...però per il resto la consiglio! ottima proporzione qualità prezzo! ciaoooo
The room is functional and clean, ideal for people who come to visit and in this sense are out and about all day. Only black spot the shower is small and capricious (hot water not continuous)
But that does not diminish the value price of housing.
La chambre est fonctionnel et épuré, idéal pour des gens qui viennent visiter et dans ce sens sont en vadrouille toute la journée. Seul point noir la douche qui est petite et capricieuse (eau chaude pas en continue)
Mais cela n'enlève rien au rapport qualité prix du logement.
A suite for the (deaf) President of cockroaches!
First of all this room IS NOT IN LONDON BRIDGE. This is a BIG LIE. The area is called New Cross and it is a dodgy, dangerous, dirty and very noisy area of London. What makes this place even more dangerous is the fact that the keys to enter the building and flat are always left in the post box slot right outside of the house for anybody who knows (or has seen) that they are there. There is an unidentified number of disrespectful people living and moving in and out of the flat day and night. The first night we were there, a guy left in the middle of the night (after slamming his room door and talking on his phone like it is daytime) without bothering to close the main door of the flat, so basically woke up and found the front door wide open for everybody to help themselves in the flat! Couple that with the fact that the keys for the building are constantly in a public space and you can see the potential for disaster. I was living for 10 years in London and have lived in very ugly places. This room / flat is a definite champion.
The president of the cockroaches must be deaf because the presidential suite is by far the most noisy room of this horrible flat. The building is located on one of the busiest roads in London leading to the port for France, so you can get the picture. I am not even bothering mentioning the non-stop buses, ambulances and police sirens throughout all night and day. It is humanly impossible to sleep. Since the windows are from the 50s, don’t expect them to reduce the noise at all – at times I really thought that we had a window open, but no, they were all closed. The first 2 nights it was really cold in the room and the flat and we only found comfort under the duvet; the president of cockroaches does not feel any cold.
We brought our own bedsheets and towel because we read that one reviewer came in and Sidney had left the bedsheets of another guest. Also, Sidney in his welcome email lets you know that you may actually have to sleep in dirty bedsheets – if there is no time to change them netwen guests. Having our own stuff proved to be a great thing - we even used owr own duvet cover. Although our bedsheets looked clean, they had big oil marks all over which we found quite disgusting. Also there was no towel. However, I have to say that the common areas and the room were clean. The toilet was taken care of on a daily basis, which is much appreciated given the number of people who use it.
Since there are 5 rooms in the flat and some of them can accommodate up to 4 people, you may have to share the TINY shower and toilet with up to 8-10 people at a time. In our case it must have been 6-7, not sure. Don’t bother asking how long you have to queue and hold your pie (and other larger items) in the morning and you must be crazy if you expect to be able to have anything near a normal shower after 4-5 people have done so before you. So, the bottom-line is that if you are a champion in holding your pie indefinitely, remaining sleepless or sleep regardless of what happens around you, have a 30 second shower and risk having dodgy strangers in the night in your room / flat, then this is the flat for you. If you are the deaf president of the cockroaches, it is even better!
El edificio es antiguo pero la relación calidad precio es buena. La cama es cómoda y aunque solo hay un baño esta independiente de la ducha con lo cual hay mas posibilidad de q uno de los dos no este ocupado. No conocimos a Sidney pero nos dejo instrucciones para todo.
Wir hatten das Appartement gebucht, weil wir eine Unterkunft mit Parkplatz suchten. Mit dem Auto ist das Haus in London gut von Dover aus kommend zu erreichen. Das Appertement ist mit dem Notwendigsten ausgestattet. Leider gingen mehrere Lampen nicht, es waren quasi nur 3 1/2 Trinkgläser in der Küche und es gab - Pardon - keine Klobürste. Die Betten waren OK, zum Kochen war alles vorhanden, WLAN funktionierte. Die Beschreibung von Sidney zum Appartement und zur Umgebung, die man Vorab bekommt, ist ausführlich und hilfreich. Die Bahnstation ist ca. 15 Minuten zu Fuß vom Haus entfernt, man ist von dort dann schnell in der City. Alles in allem hätten wir 3 Sterne gegeben, obwohl jemand in unserer Abwesenheit in der Wohnung war.
Nach unserer Abfahrt hat unser 17jähriger Sohn kurz vor Dover festgestellt, dass er seine EC-Karte, sein Monatsticket, Schülerausweis und 10 Pfund in seinem Zimmer in einem Regal vergessen hat. Er hat noch von Dover aus Sidney angerufen (wir hatten ihn nicht persönlich kennengelernt) und ihm sein Mißgeschick erklärt. Sidney sagte ihm, er würde alles sofort schicken. Inzwischen haben wir auch noch zweimal per mail nachgefragt, aber nichts mehr von Sidney gehört. Da unsere Rückkehr jetzt fast vier Wochen zurückliegt, wir aber gar nichts von unserem Vermieter gehört haben, sind wir
doch sehr enttäuscht. Natürlich ist es unser Verschulden, aber zumindest eine Rückmeldung hätten wir erwartet.
Bonnes explications pour arriver jusqu'à l'immeuble mais difficile de trouver l'entrée exacte. Un peu déçue de trouver un matelas sous le lit faisant office de 3ème couchage au lieu d'un vrai lit. Poussière en retirant le matelas qui laissait à penser que la femme de ménage contournait le matelas au lieu de le retirer pour nettoyer . Sinon cuisine bien équipée. Il manque juste la mise à disposition de serviettes pour la salle de bain. Assez bien situé. Par contre, porte extérieure fermée la nuit et nous n'étions pas en possession de la clé sur notre trousseau donc enfermés dehors. Impossible de joindre le propriétaire. Heureusement que les occupants des autres chambres nous ont donné leur numéro de portable au cas où la porte serait fermée afin de pouvoir tourner le verrou de l'intérieur. Bonne organisation pour trouver la clé.
Unless you need to stay in a very cheap place, I won't advise this "Presidential Suite". There are only two good points : it's cheap and it is relatively clean. On the negative side :
- It is very noisy : the noise of the traffic will prevent anyone to sleep unless you are equiped with wax ear plug.
- As far as public transport is concerned, it is badly serviced : 20 minutes to London Bridge by bus ; you'll need to change the underground twice for a wholes journey of 40 minutes to get to downtown (piccadilly circus)
- one tiny shower ; one toilet that is in the same room of the lavatory. It would be ok if not for the 8 people or more that stay in the appartment : "Presidential Suite" is only one of the room that are rented here. Prepare then for queueing up in the morning, waiting your turn to go to the loo or to brush your teeth.
The location of the property is well located, within walking distance of overground and a supermarket. Sidney we not met at any time and did not answer our emails quickly when needed. The property was decent: the kitchen and bathroom were not very clean; and although the room was large had no closet. We were 4 people and two had to sleep on the floor with mattresses. The Presidential Suite elapsed faces a street with heavy traffic, so it was quite noisy at any time of day or night. I think the images get to see something that is not, so it was a bit disappointing when we arrived and saw that there were many different things. Usually we had no problem, but do not think we repeated accommodation when we return.

La localización de la propiedad está bien situada, a poca distancia del overground y también de un supermercado. No conocimos a Sidney en ningún momento y tampoco contestó con rapidez a nuestros mails cuando lo necesitábamos. La propiedad era decente: la cocina y el baño no estaban demasiado limpios; y aunque la habitación era grande no disponía de armario. Éramos 4 personas y dos tuvimos que dormir en el suelo con colchones. La Suite Presidencial da a una calle transcurrida con mucho tráfico, así que había bastante ruido a cualquier hora del día o de la noche. Creo que las imágenes te dan a ver algo que no es, así que fue un poco decepcionante cuando llegamos y vimos que había muchas cosas diferentes. Por lo general no tuvimos ningún problema, pero no creo que volvamos a repetir alojamiento cuando volvamos.

Das Apartment hat zwei Schlafzimmer, ein Wohnzimmer, ein Bad, eine Küche. Es liegt in einer ruhigen Gegend im Südosten von London (etwa 10-15 Minuten von der U-Bahn Haltestelle entfernt). Nach einer ausgiebigen Sightseeing tour durch London ist man froh ein ruhiges, gemütliches Plätzchen zu haben. Es ist alles da, was mensch braucht, incl. wlan router.
Wir hatten eine super Zeit, London macht nur Spaß..........The people in London are very kind!!!!!!!!
Calm down and enjoy your time.
