The room was as seen on the web and clean when we arrived. Common areas were shared, but always clean. We liked that the apartment gave good access to the centre. Sidney communicated well and did come to help us when we messaged him. For the price this was really good value. I would book again.
The room was nice and clean. A cleaner came everyday. The kitchenfloor was always wet, because the washing machine was leaking. The bathroom was also kinda wet. The walls were really thin, so you could hear the neighbours playing music a lot.
It was an okay place to stay for a week, but I don't think we would book it again. Oh, and we never saw Sidney even though we tried to contact him via Wimdu while we were staying at this place.
The communication worked great before, but unfortunately on arrival has not worked. It has been said that we find a combination lock where we sollen..aber enter the code that did not exist unfortunately. thank god we have encountered after 20min 2 girls who had rented an apartment next door and who first let us through the inner door, finally we have reached someone on the phone who then opened our door to our apartments. The apartment was as far as "clean" only the bathroom not properly come very down and hygienic. yet enough the apartment for a maximum of 2 nights, you can of course do not have high claims.
Good and bad things about the room.
Firstly - the room itself is basic but everything you need - 2 twin beds, enough space, very fast internet access which was excellent. The kitchen had everything you needed - but was small and shared with other people - which was fine. The bathroom was clean - a cleaner came every day to take out the rubbish.
Cons about the room - the apartment is in "Lewisham Estates" - I am fairly sure it used to be (and maybe still is) housing estates. The neighbourhood was okay... but we could often hear people yelling at each other having fights and also people having sex. The walls were thin.
I had emailed Sidney 3 days before our arrival confirming he would be there to meet us. He didn't reply until 3am the morning we arrived (we were arriving from Australia at 10am) with instructions on how to get into the apartment. So when we got there, found the apartment in this old weird building, he wasn't there, I didn't have the email as we had been flying and didn't have internet access before we got there, and the only people there were some Spanish girls who were staying in another room in the apartment next door. Sidney didn't answer texts or phone calls. Eventually we found another resident who helped us but I think it was quite unsatisfactory that this was done so badly. While we stayed 3 girls stayed in another room in the apartment and they said exactly the same thing happened to them.
Sidney has a lot of rooms in the same building which he rents out to foreigners - I think he should manage them a little bit better because this is effectively his job...
Overall, the room is what it is - basic, but clean, it's what you need and was a very good price. I don't know that I would stay there again though. It's "10 minutes to London Bridge" on the overground which is quite expensive (up to 5 pounds per trip depending on the time of day) which means that what you save for the room you spend a bit of on transport anyway. It's pretty much hostel type accommodation so you might be better off going with a hostel closer to the city for slightly more money.
Sidney was really nice and helpful for the short time that we saw him. The apartment itself could do with some renovating. For a short trip to London it was okay.
For the price we paid we were very happy:
Close enough to the tube.
Close to shops.
Simple, but decorated nicely.
Great room. We had use of the kitchen and all appliances. There was a cleaner who cleaned every day. We only spoke to sidney on the phone, but he was really helpful and also sent us lots of emails and texts. The other guests were nice too.
We really enjoyed staying in this room. The apartment is simple but clean and sidney has decorated it with fun pictures which come from the streets of London. We thought it was original.
The apartment was good for the price. Sidney is cool and did everything to help us enjoy the stay. It was easy to get to the centre.
