Snug Room by the London Bridge
- Parking available
- Lockable room
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.
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!
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.
The apartment is really convenient if you are visiting the Olympic games this summer. It is just 10 minutes by bus to Greenwich were a number of events are taking place, and just 20 minutes to the stadium at Stratford, via the Overground and Jubilee Line.

Reviews for this host's other properties
We spent three nights here. Although it was mostly as advertised (everything kind of worked, if you have the patience), I cannot recommend this place for a London stay.
First, you are not "on the river." You face a street with housing on the other side, and access to the river is kind of a joke, so don't be swayed by that part of the ad.
The flat is very, very sad and tired. The owner needs to replace the bedding and this cheap and gross couch. There is an even grosser cheap and gross wool blanket on this couch that servces as a cover, but I'd hesitate to let my dog sleep on it.
There is not a stick of artwork on the walls, giving it a "single lightbulb in the centre of the room" look. The oven was nearly impossible to figure out, and one of the radiators would not shut off even when you turned it off. We eventually got both appliances to work, but repeated phone calls to Sidney, our contact, for help were ignored. We never did hear back from her.
Oh -- and there's no hot water in the place after 10 a.m. My takeaway from our stay is the owner's a complete cheapstake....
Also, the area is purely residential, remote and boring. The nearest pub is winner (the Mayflower) but it's a considerable hike, and groceries are a full 20 minutes on foot -- as is the nearest Tube station.
If we paid half price, I'd be okay with this accommodation, but we paid full. The biggest joke was the tip jar.
I wouldn't want to call the property total crap -- more like the bare minimum -- but at this price, give it a pass.
Sidney, can you explain your lack of communication? Don't tell me I had the wrong number because I confirmed it with you by email before we left.
positive points: price, great location / London center, room and kitchen
negative points: very noisy road (also during the night), bathroom (not possible to take a shower)
My boyfriend and me where visiting London from 4. of October until 8. of October. Directly after the booking we got all the informations about the apartment and the directions. The contact to Sidney was always impecabble. She is a really kind person. Due to the clear directions it was easy for us to find the apartment but it was not as close to the centre as we were thinking. It took between 40minutes from Victoria Station. At first sight the apartment seemed to be clean but if you looked at more closely it wasn't. The shower room and the kitchen were in a more desolate condition. The fridge and freezer were not clean inside also the cupboards. The mattress of the bed (cuban room) was also uncomfortable. The price of the apartment was incompatible to the conditions.
Basically fine for money, good location, but a few issues- far too hot- radiator was on full and we were unable to alter the temperature which led to us having to keep the window open overnight which was obviously noisy. The wifi code was incorrect and the shower was like a small dribble of water. Neighbors were quite noisy and not everyone had respect for the fact that other people use the bathroom. Basic and cheap but nothing special and not having wifi was a real nuisance. Heating was a real problem too- turn it down!
What Sidney doesn't say is that you have to share one toilet with other five rooms with at least two people in each one. ONE REGULAR TOILET FOR 12 PEOPLE!!!
Wij kwamen s 'nachts aan en het adres was moeilijk te vinden.
Zeer klein kamertje met een kaal gloeilampje aan het plafond als verlichting en een oud bed met spiraalbodem. Beddengoed was schoon. Gebruik van de keuken was goed en netjes de badkamer echter was vies met een toilet met een kapotte bril .Mai contact met Sidney verliep goed. Toch een prettig verblijf gehad ondanks de gebreken.
Bien situado y cómodo. Lo recomiendo.
Es una habitación bien ubicado, entrada y salida muy cómoda y sin problemas. Lo recomiendo a quien quiera pasar unos días en la ciudad.
Es hat uns in dem Apartment gut gefallen. Bis zur Bahn sind es ca. 10 Minuten zu Fuß auf dem Weg ist auch ein großer Supermarkt. Das Apartment bietet alles, was man braucht und es ist suber und praktisch eingerichtet. Die Beschreibung zur Wohnung ist super gut und hat uns wie eine kleine Schnitzeljagt viel Spaß gemacht.
Preisgünstige Unterkunft. Komfort ist nicht zu erwarten.
Sauber und zweckmäßig. Es gibt keine Steckdose im Zimmer, daher auch nur eine Deckenleuchte. Im 140cm großen Bett, gab es eine Bettdecke, obwohl für zwei Personen gebucht war.
