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.

we had a nice holiday! the flat is very beautiful and clean.
it it not far from tower brige, about 20 minutes
Das Zimmer war ordentlich und sauber, es war auch alles so, wie auf den Bildern abgebildet. Allerdings wurde vorher nichts darüber gesagt, dass das Zimmer in einer WG ist, also wohnt man mit 3 anderen Parteien zusammen, die ebenfalls die Küche/Bad/Dusche mitbenutzen.
Eine Frau, die dort alles sauber hält und die Dinge vor Ort erledigt, putzt zwar regelmäßig (es war recht sauber), aber die Nutzungsspuren der anderen sind immer dort, man ist eben nirgends allein. Außerdem kann diese Frau kein Englisch, das war etwas problematisch, trotzdem war sie sehr freundlich und bemühte sich.
Das Zimmer an sich war recht klein, aber ausreichend bestückt. Auch war es ruhig, auch die Mitbewohner hörte man kaum. Die Wohnung an sich liegt sehr zentral, man kann mit der "Overground" schnell ins Zentrum, das ist praktisch für einen Städetrip.
L'appartement est correct, mais nous avons été un peu déçu, car contrairement à la description, il n'y a pas de canapé lit, mais 2 matelas en 90 cm calés contre un mur. Nous étions 5 ; aussi l'un d'entre nous a du dormir parterre sur le matelas...
A par cela, l'appartement est quand même à 15 min de la station de métro à pied, ce qui n'est pas tout près.
Sinon, l'appartement est bien meublé, l'équipement est convenable.
Fin beliggenhed. Vi var 4 der delte et værelse. Vi fik sovet, men det var ikke til 4 personer. 2 af kogeblussene i køkkenet virker ikke, men ellers var både bad og toilet ok. Ingen luksus men fint til prisen.
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.
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!
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.
Auch wenn wir Sidney nie kennengelernt haben war unser Aufenthalt sehr schön. Die Verbindung in die Stadt ist sowohl mit der U-bahn als auch mit dem Bus sehr gut. Unser Zimmer war klein, aber sauber und das Bett war sehr gemütlich. In diese Unterkunft würde ich wieder gehen.
