The flat, which is in a riverside development on Rotherhithe Street, consists of double bedroom, reception room, separate modern kitchen and bathroom with shower and bath. Please note that the bedroom and lounge are separate. We also use the lounge for sleeping if required. Here we have the option to put single mattresses. Please see the pictures. The bathroom and kitchen are tiled and the rest of the flat has oak flooring throughout. There is also a secure gated parking space. The apartment is fully furnished and has WI-FI.
In the local area you will find everything you need for your stay; there are supermarkets, bars, cafes, and restaurants. The apartment is just steps from the Thames, and just a short walk or bus ride to some of London's most famous sights including Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, and Greenwich.
The area has great transportation links. The flat is just a short walk from both Rotherhithe and Canada Water Tube Stations, which gives you access to both the overground and the Jubilee Line. If you are in London on business this flat is the ideal place for you to stay. The River Bus to Canary Wharf is close by, and takes just 3 minutes to cross the Thames!!

The room was nice and clean, public transport right outside the door! I would for sure stay here again.
We had a great time at Sidney's place. It is looks exactly as discribed. Clean and airy, well equipped, close enough to the tube station and to several bus routes.
Moreover, we spent a long time searching for an apartment and must point out that it was the best offer on price/quality criteria.
The flat was clean and in good condition, stocked with plenty of bedding/towels, all the kitchen essentials and had good wi-fi connection. It is peaceful and gets lots of light. The location was good: Just 10 minutes from the nearest tube station. Sidney was an excellent host - he gave us really detailed instructions and met us at the property when we arrived.
Very good location! It`s easy to get to the city center from the flat without taking too much time as bus stops and the underground station is very close to the apartment. Some good pubs are also not far away :)
The flat is very clean, bright and cosy. You are free to use all devices in the flat - including wi-fi and kitchen utensils. There is even a view of Canary Wharf from the balcony!
Sidney is absolutely a great host! Very open, friendly and polite. He made time to show us the city, and even took us for a drink in a local pub.
For a budget place, this is one of the best!
1) Very, very noisy
The New Cross Road has lots of traffic all night and all day.
You have sirens from ambulance all night.
Bus Garage from London Traffic is around the corner.
There is no difference in noise reduction between open and closed window (old single glass windows)
2) "Shared bathroom" is mentioned in the text, but I didn't read it carefully enough.
This means, there is one "bathroom" (toilet and 1 basin) for the whole floor (5 frooms, maybe 15 persons or more)
I took some fotos to document this, but wimdu had no interest to publish them.
We had a lovely stay in Sidney's apartment. It was a decent size and we'd say that it's great for families or groups of friends. Everything was comfortable and as in the wimdu pictures. The benefits also included wifi and free parking. The nearest tube station is about five minutes away and getting into the centre is relatively easy.
Sidney was really helpful and gave us a good orientation. He let us check in early to the apartment and also leave our bags on the last day. This was really convenient. Compared to the price of a hotel, this option was really cheap. We recommend this place for anyone wanting a short break in London.
After reading the last review we actually became a little concerned. However, Sidney did everything he could to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. He even met us early in the morning to drive us back to the airport. The room itself is simple, but large. It is on the front side of the street, so if you are sensitive to noise, you may need earplugs. We were ok without. Sidney put the storage heater on while we were in the room and this made the temperature very nice. The rest of the property is large, with a decent size kitchen that you can use and separate toilet and bathroom. There are buses that go to the centre right outside the property and the station is two minutes away. From the station you can get a mainline train to London Bridge, which literally takes five minutes station to station.
Thanks again Sidney for all your kindness. We will come back here.
thx for the positive comment, but actually we regard the room as far to small for 3 persons. Anyway the room is quite economic, clean and save. For Two ok but defiantly not for the three of us.
A suite for the (deaf) President of cockroaches!
First of all this room IS NOT IN LONDON BRIDGE. This is a BIG LIE. The area is called New Cross and it is a dodgy, dangerous, dirty and very noisy area of London. What makes this place even more dangerous is the fact that the keys to enter the building and flat are always left in the post box slot right outside of the house for anybody who knows (or has seen) that they are there. There is an unidentified number of disrespectful people living and moving in and out of the flat day and night. The first night we were there, a guy left in the middle of the night (after slamming his room door and talking on his phone like it is daytime) without bothering to close the main door of the flat, so basically woke up and found the front door wide open for everybody to help themselves in the flat! Couple that with the fact that the keys for the building are constantly in a public space and you can see the potential for disaster. I was living for 10 years in London and have lived in very ugly places. This room / flat is a definite champion.
The president of the cockroaches must be deaf because the presidential suite is by far the most noisy room of this horrible flat. The building is located on one of the busiest roads in London leading to the port for France, so you can get the picture. I am not even bothering mentioning the non-stop buses, ambulances and police sirens throughout all night and day. It is humanly impossible to sleep. Since the windows are from the 50s, don’t expect them to reduce the noise at all – at times I really thought that we had a window open, but no, they were all closed. The first 2 nights it was really cold in the room and the flat and we only found comfort under the duvet; the president of cockroaches does not feel any cold.
We brought our own bedsheets and towel because we read that one reviewer came in and Sidney had left the bedsheets of another guest. Also, Sidney in his welcome email lets you know that you may actually have to sleep in dirty bedsheets – if there is no time to change them netwen guests. Having our own stuff proved to be a great thing - we even used owr own duvet cover. Although our bedsheets looked clean, they had big oil marks all over which we found quite disgusting. Also there was no towel. However, I have to say that the common areas and the room were clean. The toilet was taken care of on a daily basis, which is much appreciated given the number of people who use it.
Since there are 5 rooms in the flat and some of them can accommodate up to 4 people, you may have to share the TINY shower and toilet with up to 8-10 people at a time. In our case it must have been 6-7, not sure. Don’t bother asking how long you have to queue and hold your pie (and other larger items) in the morning and you must be crazy if you expect to be able to have anything near a normal shower after 4-5 people have done so before you. So, the bottom-line is that if you are a champion in holding your pie indefinitely, remaining sleepless or sleep regardless of what happens around you, have a 30 second shower and risk having dodgy strangers in the night in your room / flat, then this is the flat for you. If you are the deaf president of the cockroaches, it is even better!
There are awful lots of things wrong with my stay. To start with, the room was half ready, no pillows. At a time, 8 people were sharing 1 toilet and bathroom and later 10 people. The heater in the toilet was very filthy. There was renovation going on around the property which disturbed our sleep (my sisters and I). Never ever going back.
