The great transport links of this flat have made it very popular with tourists and people working in the city and Canary Wharf. It is situated in a quiet cul de sac between New Cross Station and Deptford Bridge Station. It consists of one large double bedroom, reception room, separate kitchen and bathroom with shower and bath. The shower is always hot and powerful.
The bedroom has a new and comfortable double bed, so can sleep up to two people. We can also put up to 3 single beds in the flat (see pictures), so in total, the apartment sleeps 5 people.
In addition there are several parking spaces and the flat has gas central heating. It is fully furnished and has everything you need.
As you can see from the maps in the pictures the development is just around the corner from New Cross Station (trains go direct to London Bridge – 5mins, Waterloo – 8 mins, Charing Cross 12 mins, Cannon Street – 9 mins). The London Overground also passes through the station. Deptford Bridge DLR is also a five-minute walk away, making it ideal for someone working in Canary Wharf or the City. Both stations are in zone 2 and an Oyster travel card would be valid for all means of transport.
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!
In the local area you will find everything you need for a great stay; there are food shops, cafes, restaurants, 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. 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.
Notes about Key Collection:
Although we say that the accommodation will be ready anytime after 3pm, very often it is ready before. In most cases guests may arrive early, leave their bags and collect the keys. We can meet you at the property to give you the keys and check you in at any time. You just need to let us know when you expect to arrive. You will get our telephone number from this site once the booking has been processed.
Reaching the address was very easy. We used a Taxi from Heathrow and there was no problem. It takes 45-60 minutes. The general facilities available were OK. However, the accommodation is unsuitable for 5 people. The photos attached with the accommodation description convey a different picture. The same single bedroom, photographed with different linen conveys a feeling that the accommodation has two bedrooms. This needs to be corrected. There is only one bedroom with a single double-bed. There are three mattresses provided which have to be spread on the floor for three guests. Not at all acceptable. Mattresses had covers, but no bedsheets. The linen provided on the double-bed was smelly. A hotplate, microwave oven, washing machine and refrigerator were available. However, utensils provided were found to be insufficient. Connectivity is good from the New Cross station. Provisions, etc are available close by. When I contacted the host, I found him to be quite sarcastic. The accommodation is unsuitable for 5 people.
Sidney antwortete sehr zügig auf unsere Anfrage und beantwortete auch sofort alle offenen Fragen.
Die Weg- und Hausbeschreibungen waren so, dass wir am Ankunftstag problemlos in die Wohnung gelangen konnten.
Sidney had keys ready for us on arrival in a lock box at the flat and then stopped by to see if we needed anything and provide any directions etc. He came back with two extra towels as we only had two on arrival and needed two more as we had our two teenage boys with us.
Flat location had great access to train station which was just a 3 min walk away and had us in the downtown core with in 10 mins.
Flat was comfortable with stove, microwave, fridge, washing machine and TV. The bathroom could do with a bit of updating and cleaning but was not an issue for us.
In all a good place that met our needs and price range.
My family and I had a great stay at Sidney's flat. Sidney was accommodating with our early arrival and answered the few questions we had promptly (via e-mail, since we didn't have a phone). The flat was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed and more (although we didn't do much cooking). The location was perfect for us; very close to New Cross station for easy access to central London, but in a quiet neighborhood. The bathroom could do with a little sprucing up, but otherwise the flat was perfect for our needs. I would definitely stay there again.
The place is great if you're planning to stay 'south of the river'! And especially if you're attending a conference or workshop at Goldsmiths College, it's a stone's throw from the campus. Very conveniently located a street away from New Cross railway station. Our host Sidney's an amiable chap!
Easy enough to get to using the directions provided. Didn't meet Sidney in person but did message. Location isn't central London but it is very close to the metro and London metro and railway is very easy to navigate. The apt itself is good so that you can rest and shower in after being around town. We did have the next listing come in the morning of the checkout day to leave luggage; this wasn't communicated to us but they were lucky to catch us before we left for the day and we were happy to oblige. All in all, it was a good experience.
I had a great stay at Sidney's flat - it was perfectly located to Goldsmiths University which was where I needed to be. The flat was a perfect size for me and in a very quiet area which was great.
Sidney had prepared everything regarding entering the flat which made it really easy and hassle free for me to access the apartment.
