Reviews for this host's other properties
Had a nice stay in London.
The flat is a bit outside but with a very good connection to the city via overground/underground and bus.
The room, presidential suite, was good. Very big, but too noisy, because of the street and with a lot of sirens because of a hospital nearby. Could hardly sleep there.
Would prefer another room next time, much smaller but to the back, there you don't here anything of the traffic. ;-)
The shower is very small but works fine, the toilet with a bin is separate which is very good since there are five rooms which have to spare them.
(The flat was well booked as we arrived, but there wasn't a problem about queuing in front of the bath anytime.)
The kitchen can be used, you have your own space in the fridge and there are enough plates and stuff.
Would book a room again, but next time one that faces the back. ;-)
We enjoyed our stay very much. Everything was as expected and the room had a perfect size for four persons. We never got to meet Sidney, but he was very helpful upon our arrival. It was easy finding the place and the keys, and we enjoyed very much that we could take bus number 453, which stops near almost all of the citys biggest attractions, directly from just outside the apartment. That made everything very easy and convenient.
I would definitively reccomend this place to anyone else going to London.
GREAT space nice clean shower and toilet. The road on the window side was quite noisy at night. But with some good earplugs we will book it again possibly. The apartment was really close to the metro overground station from where you are fast to any place in town in a sec. Thnx a lot!
Sehr schönes Zimmer, wie erwartet.
Die Wohnung war durch das Foto sehr leicht zu finden.
Wohnung war sauber.
Hat alles gut funktioniert.
Ich bin sehr zufrieden.
In the beginning we were a bit disappointed, as nobody was there nor reachable on the phone as we arrived and it took some time to get into the appartment (we would suggest to make a fixed arrangement). Further we would have preferred to know that the way from the overground station to the appartment is quite long with heavy suitcases.
But then everything was all right: Sidney is a kind guy and gave us good instruction for the appartment. All equipment was at present and working, beds were good and we appreciated very much the wooden floor in the rooms. With 5 people it was no problem to get along, having two bedrooms and a sofa in the living room. Maybe one or two reading lights for the evening would be helpful and the fixing of the shower needs a repair.
From New Kent Road there are a lot of busses to the center of London, you'll get everywhere easily and can get into contact with different kind of people.
We can remmoned Sidneys appartment especially to other families who are not keen on having lots of night life nearby. If you are looking for a base to visit London for reasonable value-for-money it is definetely all right.
Die schöne, große Wohnung, in der man ja ein Zimmer von fünfen bewohnt, ist direkt an der Bushaltestelle gelegen, von der man 45 Minuten bis zu Viktoria-Station braucht. Klingt lang, gewöhnt man sich aber schnell dran - Busfahren ist nirgends so unkompliziert wie in London. Shop gibts in der Nähe, Pubs haben wir nicht so wirklich gefunden. Wir waren zu dritt in einem Zimmer, das war ok: ein großes Doppelbett plus Matratze auf dem Boden. Wenn man hier zu viert wohnt, stell ich mir das sehr stressig vor, weil die vierte Matratze dann den Rest des Bodens füllen würde. Ansonsten sauber und Schlüsselübergabe, Gemeinschaftsküchenbenutzung etc. wunderbar organisiert. Morgens gabs Stau vor Dusche und Toilette - also früh aufstehen! Wir würden auf jedenfall wieder dort hin gehen und es weiter empfehlen.
We enjoyed our stay and the room was clean and fitted out with only the bare essentials but we really didn't need any more than that. The bathroom and shower were very clean and we were pleasantly surprised by the fact that we could have used the kitchen for breakfast or to make a hot drink if we had been better prepared. One small criticism: there was only a central naked bulb in the room, which gave a harsh light and the impression of being in a storeroom! It would have been much nicer if there had been at least a lampshade on the light. We would have welcomed bedside lights too. However that said, we would most certainly visit again as our impression was overall a positive one.
Sehr gute Unterkunft - tolle Anbindung an die Öffis (Bushaltestelle direkt vor der Tür). Leider fehlten genaue Instruktionen, wo man sich bei wem melden muss. So gab es spät abends einige Anrufe, aber lief dann alles geschmiert...
alles in allem... sehr ordentlich!
Sidney is a very friendly and helpfull person. the flat was a bit crowded but the room was good and clean. Quiet neighbourhood. Shops and bus / subway stations are within a short distance.
The room was workable for the price of it. All facilities needed were there. Including washing mashine. Nice area to stay in. Though a bit far from the city. Unfortunately there was a reparation of the New Cross Gate station during our stay so there were replacement busses going instead. A bit tricky at ones first stay in London, but the staff at the stations and busses were awsome to explain and help out. So it was really not a problem. Can indeed plan to stay there again if going back to London.
