About this listing
I am proud to present this fabulous two bedroom recently renovated apartment. The flat, which is on the top floor of a private block, consists of two double bedrooms, a large reception room, a separate fully comprehensive kitchen and a bathroom with both power shower and bath. There is solid wooden flooring throughout and porcelain tiles in both the kitchen and bathroom. The property, which has full double glazing throughout and is taken in a very clean state, also boasts fantastic views of Canary Wharf and comes with off street parking. The block is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac. There are also communal gardens in this popular development. Everything can be provided for your stay, including towels and bedding.
In the local area you will find everything you need for a great stay; there is a large Sainsburys, cafes, restaurants, and trendy 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. The area also has great transportation links and the flat is located just a few minutes from New Cross Gate Station, which gives you access to the overground and the mainline. There are also numerous buses, which pass close to 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!
Die Wohnung hat alles nötige beinhaltet und liegt in einer ruhigen Wohnlage, perfekt auch mit einem Mietwagen zu erreichen. Der Zugang erfolgt per Code-Schloss, die Vermieterin war nicht vor Ort, was aber auch kein Problem war. Zur U-Bahn (bzw. Overground) sind es ca. 12 min. zu Fuß, aber gut machbar. Nach ca. 25 minuten ist man in der Innenstadt.
Für den Preis absolut okay und empfehlenswert.
The flat was - as described - Awesome. A great flat in a great location. Thanks
Good value for money. Little bit far from the train station especially when you come with heavy luggage plus there is no elevator. It was great base for making trips in London, Sainsbury is close. Our group of six people slept there comfortably and there us almost no noise from street.
We spent 5 nights in Sidney's flat. The first thing we had to do after a good 20 minutes walk from the station was to talk one of the neighbours into letting us get into the building... Sidney wasn't there, the door opener doesn't work after 2PM (it was about 2.30) and he didn't turn up until 7PM...
The kitchen is rather well equipped, but if you want to have a meal there, you will have to go shopping first: the cpboards are absolutely empty, not even a jug of instant coffee or a couple of tea bags!
For a 5 nights stay, we were provided one towel each... and only one set of keys, for a flat where 6 persons can stay.
The station, bus stop and nearest shops are all 20 minutes walk. There is nothing to help you find your way around in the flat, not a map of the area, or the bus routes, nothing.
The flat is clean, and the view from the livig room window very nice.
Merci à Sydney qui nous a mis à disposition un appartement fonctionnel et très calme, bien placé, zone 2, et surtout à sa patience face mes problèmes techniques qui m'empêchaient d'accéder à toutes les explications sur l'appartement...et face à notre arrivée très tardive. Merci encore.
Host was friendly and check-in and check-out were very simple. Please note that he walk from the apartment to the New Cross Gate station takes a little longer if you're traveling with children. Beds are good and space is ample for a family (we were 2 adults and 3 children 7-11). Neighborhood was quiet and the commute to London/London Bridge was easy. Having the grocery (Sainsbury's) next to the train station/on the walk home was also incredibly convenient.

About the Host, Sidney
I'm from the UK, a Cambridge Graduate. Usted to work for an investment bank, but now I work mainly with property. In 2012 we started to list some properties on here. I have always been proud to see people satisfied with my actions and my aim with the properties I have on airbnb is to give service and value.
In terms of being a guest I always treat your property as if it were my own - I believe in clean living. I am sociable and can talk a lot, in fact sometimes too much! At this stage in my life I do like some level of comfort, but it does not have to be extravagance.
My life motto: No matter what happens I'll be singing, dancing and praising the good Lord!
