Reviews of this property
Accommodation is satisfactory.
There is just one small problem.
The keys are hard to recover.
we believe we should review the key procurement method.
Otherwise all in all, the apartment is clean and well located for the center of London.
L'hébergement est satisfaisant.
Il y a juste un petit hic.
Les clés sont dur à récupérer.
nous pensons qu'il faut revoir la méthode de passation des clés.
Sinon dans l'ensemble, l'appartement est propre et bien situé par rapport au centre de Londres.
I can only recommend all the accommodation if you do not go on vacation to stay in his room. The rooms are clean and the possibility to use the kitchen very important (England is really expensive). I with my mistress thought about to fly back next year.
Ich kann allen nur die Unterkunft empfehlen wenn man nicht in Urlaub fährt um in seinem Zimmer zu wohnen . Die Räumlichkeiten sind sauber und die Möglichkeit die Küche zu nutzen ist sehr sehr wichtig ( England ist richtig teuer) . Ich hab mit meinem Frauchen schon überlegt nächstes Jahr wieder zu fliegen .
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Everything as expected, but there was only one bathroom for the whole house we had no problem. Everything clean and ordenado.No is next to London Bridge as the description says but does not take anything to get downtown
The worst was that Sidney gave information to get the keys and other barely 9h before catching the plane and even sent him messages Wimdu therefore as their number did not answer me, which made we got to look for cheap hostels case. Finally he gave the instructions and everything was as expected.
Todo como lo esperaba, aunque había un solo baño para toda la casa no hemos tenido problema. Todo limpio y ordenado.No está al lado de London Bridge como dice la descripción pero no se tarda nada en llegar al centro
Lo peor ha sido que Sidney nos dio la información para conseguir las llaves y demás a penas 9h antes de coger el avión y aunque le mandaba mensajes tanto por Wimdu como a su numero no me contestaba, lo cual hizo que llegáramos a mirar hostales baratos por si acaso. Finalmente nos dio las instrucciones y todo fue como esperaba.
The room was for our purposes in order, as we did not spend much time in it and always were very tired when we came back in the evening. But as the Internet site, the room was not. The photo is deceptive total. The room was old and in fragile condition. The wall had cracks and the window was not close, so it has always drawn in the room and it was very cold at night. Shower and toilet were fine, they just had to share with three other parties. I personally did not mind, but others do not like it already when you come out of the shower and someone stands in front of a complete stranger. Also, I had booked for 4 people but there were only three blankets available so had to sleep without a blanket. So I sacrificed myself and slept with full clothes. Not just beautiful. I have also expected at 4 persons booked and 4 beds are available, however, there was only a medium-sized double bed and 2 mattresses, so had to sleep 2 of us on an old mattress on the floor. The only positive was the city location. But in 7 minutes, as indicated on the Internet, it was still not to create. On the whole, it was a disappointment. I will the next time think carefully about it, if I would book again through Wimdu.
Das Zimmer war für unsere Zwecke in Ordnung, da wir nicht viel zeit darin verbracht haben und immer sehr müde waren als wir abends hin kamen. Aber so wie im Internet angegeben, war das Zimmer nicht. Das Foto täuscht total. Das Zimmer war alt und in brüchigem Zustand. Die Wand hatte Risse und das Fenster war nicht dicht, sodass es im Zimmer immer gezogen hat und es in der Nacht sehr kalt war. Dusche und Toilette waren in Ordnung, man musste sie nur mit drei weiteren Parteien teilen. Mich persönlich hat das nicht gestört, aber andere stört es schon, wenn man aus der Dusche kommt und jemand wildfremder steht vor einem. Außerdem hatte ich für 4 Personen gebucht, es waren aber nur drei Decken vorhanden, sodass einer ohne Decke schlafen musste. So habe ich mich geopfert und mit voller Kleidung geschlafen. Nicht gerade schön. Ich habe mir außerdem erwartet, dass bei 4 gebuchten Personen auch 4 Betten vorhanden sind, jedoch gab es nur ein mittelgroßes Doppelbett und 2 Matratzen, sodass 2 von uns auf einer alten Matratze auf dem Boden schlafen mussten. Das einzig positive war die stadtnahe Lage. Aber in 7 Minuten, wie im Internet angegeben, war es trotzdem nicht zu schaffen. Im großen und ganzen war es eine Enttäuschung. Ich werde mir das nächste mal genau überlegen, ob ich noch einmal über Wimdu buchen würde.
The location is okay for London. It's just 200 m from New Cross Gate Station and you get to the Centre quite easily. If you expect to be closer to the City you will have to pay more.
We didn't meet Sidney but with the key instructions it was easy to get into the appartment. We had the Asian room with 3 people which was okay.
Not okay was the fact that there is just one single toilet and one single shower for more than 10 people. And you just need one person who doesn't clean up after using the toilet/the shower and the whole place becomes really disgusting. We had that problem and therfore wish that the facilites would be looked after/cleaned more often.
The room was not as quiet as the descritption would suggest but a look at the map and google street view showed us before that the house is located at a big road so we didn't expect it too quiet.
Would we recommend this appartment? In general yes for all those who need a place to sleep in London and know about the fact that you share a single toilet and single shower with 12 other people and don't care (you might be lucky and have other travellers who are clean, you might be less lucky - as we were - and live there with travellers who are not quite as clean as you wish).
Good room. Quiet and clean. Friendly host and housemates. Supermarket and tube station just 2 minutes away. Shower warm with good pressure. Convenient and cheap place.
Sidney was at the apartment to welcome us and he gave us all the information we needed and some other tips. We were in the Asian Room, which faces the garden. It was quiet and not close to the street. You can get to the centre on the train in about 10 minutes; with the bus it takes about 30 minutes. Buses are 24 hours. The supermarket is really close to the apartment. For the money we paid, we were really lucky. Thank you Sidney!
Sidney was really nice and helped us with all our questions. The room was as in the Wimdu pictures and clean and tidy. Location is great, as you are very close to the station and the buses. To get to the centre of London is very easy. There are also shops and a supermarket close to the apartment. We enjoyed our time in London.
