The Space

One stop from London Bridge, this room can accommodate one, two or three people (we'll put an extra single in there).

The flat, which is very comfortable, has everything you need, including wireless Internet, a shared bathroom, kitchen, separate bathroom, microwave, fridge and parking. You also have your own key, so you can lock your room.

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!

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.

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.

  • We stayed here for 3 nights. Transport links are good and we had good instructions for getting into the place. We never met the host. There are 3 guest rooms and some of the others guests were a bit noisy. The train passed right outside our window and I could still hear it with ear plugs in. The bedroom was actually quite nice (apart from the strange pictures on the wall - different from the ones shown in the picture) and the kitchen was functional. The bathroom was a bit mouldy in places. Tea, coffee, towels are not included. So OK for a super budget stay, but I don't think I'll be back.

  • The room is clean. There was sufficient space for two. However, the train passing by may be rather noisy for people who are light sleepers. Overall, it was a great stay over at the place. :)

  • The apartment was nice and is very close to tube (overground) and bus stops.
    You can find lot of supermarkets near the apartment.
    The apartment was exactly as described and we even met Sidney who is a very cool guy.
    Tnx for everything Sidney ;)

    ps:they are even books in the room if you decide to stay in the room instead of exploring London! ;)

  • Es hat von der Buchung bis zur Abreise alles super und problemlos geklappt, danke Sydney! Die Anbindung in die Innenstadt ist unschlagbar!
    Der Zug fährt zwar direkt am Haus vorbei, aber der hat uns nicht gestört. Haben allerdings für 3 Personen das kleinste Zimmer bekommen (zum Glück waren wir doch nur zu 2.), was wir nicht recht verstanden haben. Das Zimmer als auch das Bad waren gezeichnet mit Schimmel-unschön und bei einem längeren Aufenthalt nicht zu empfehlen. Für ein paar Tage aber aushaltbar. Allerdings war das Haus eine reine Baustelle, wird wohl komplett renoviert (wahrscheinlich wird dann das Schimmelproblem aufhören!), worauf wir leider nicht hingewiesen wurden, denn Wochentags liefen dort die Handwerker rum und könnten super ins Zimmer schauen.
    Aber an sich ist die Unterkunft zu empfehlen, grad für den Preis! Und die 2 genannten Probleme werden dann wohl in naher Zukunft auch nicht mehr vorhanden sein.
    Danke für ein schönen London Aufenthalt

  • Thank you so much Sidney for receiving us, even if we didn't meet.
    We had a very nice time in London.
    See you the next time, maybe !

  • It is situated in the middle of several stations, giving people the option to take either Overground or southeastern rail. The apartment is cozy and has all the basic amenities. It is definitely value for money. I would definitely be back if I come back to London again.

  • The room had all the amenities promised, though there was some issues with the shower at the time. I was satisfied with everything, but my companions complained that the train passing directly by the flat was too loud and that it was too cold.

  • We spent a nice time here! Unfortunately, we have not seen Sidney. But the organization was great, the apartment is in a nice location and is not expensive. I recommend and thank you!:)

  • It was all in all allright, but we would have appreciated a little more cleanliness in the bathroom and a little bath mat on the floor ...
    The organising of letting us in was excellent and very uncomplicated, which was really good for us and we appreciated a lot!

  • Thanks Sidney! We had a great time there in London! I hope we will meet again each other in the future! Fabio

About
Born in the sunny old UK; A Cambridge Graduate that used to work for an investment bank. For some years now my main activity has been property. I set up a short term letting company last year to address the increasing demand from tourists looking to rent a room or apartment in London We now have a small team and work in the business full time. So if you have booked a room or apartment with us you can be sure that we are fully focused on you having a great stay. On a more personal level I am a laid back person who loves dancing Forró, travelling and mixing with fun and interesting people. In terms of being a guest I always treat your property as if it were my own - I believe in clean living I don't smoke and only drink tiny amounts. I am sociable and can talk a lot. At this stage in my life I do like some level of comfort, but it does not have to be extravagance. My life motto: Stay POSITIVE; Look for the POSITIVE; Generate POSITIVE Energy!
