We had booked (7 days 3 pers.), But obtained in the first book neither of Wimdu even a response or confirmation of Sydney in July. Therefore made a second booking, again in Sydney, but accidentally to another room. The mistake we only noticed when two automated confirmation e-mails have come shortly before departure, and we have noticed the same time that in July both full amounts of the credit card had been debited. The telephone customer service of Wimdu canceled us a room, and informed us that our host Sydney refused to repay the double booking.
The room we were given was not described, but another, smaller in same about 6-room apartment.
We liked not all. We think it's irresponsible of Wimdu that the credit card is charged three months ahead of the full amount, and that their confirmation e-mail system does not always work. It is also dubious that we never get Sydney to face, and emails were never answered, not on questions at booking later. He has a high amount of money we get for nothing at all, and does not respond. Lesson learned: We will never back services from Sydney Wimdu or avail.
Wir hatten im Juli gebucht (7 Tage 3 Pers.), jedoch bei der ersten Buchung weder von Wimdu noch von Sydney eine Antwort oder Bestätigung erhalten. Deshalb eine zweite Buchung gemacht, nochmals bei Sydney, jedoch versehentlich ein anderes Zimmer. Den Fehler haben wir erst gemerkt, als kurz vor der Abreise zwei automatisierte Bestätigungsmails gekommen sind, und wir gleichzeitig bemerkt haben, dass bereits im Juli beide vollen Beträge von der Kreditkarte abgebucht worden waren. Der telefonische Kundendienst von Wimdu stornierte uns das eine Zimmer, und belehrte uns, dass unser Host Sydney die Rückzahlung der Doppelbuchung verweigere.
Das Zimmer das wir erhielten war nicht das beschriebene, sondern ein anderes, kleineres in derselben ca. 6-Zimmer Wohnung.
Uns gefiel das alles gar nicht. Wir finden es unseriös von Wimdu, dass die Kreditkarte drei Monate zum voraus mit dem vollen Betrag belastet wird, und dass ihr Bestätigungs-Mail-System nicht immer funktioniert. Ebenfalls unseriös ist, dass wir Sydney nie zu Gesicht bekommen haben, und auf Emails wurde nie geantwortet, weder auf Fragen bei bei der Buchung noch später. Er hat einen hohen Geldbetrag von uns bekommen für nichts und wieder nichts, und reagiert nicht. Lektion gelernt: Wir werden nie wieder Dienste von Wimdu oder Sydney in Anspruch nehmen.
Watch Out !!! I booked a room with this man, and when he had told me estava paid already occupied, but offered me another of similar characteristics. The site was an apartment under construction in the façade and rooms with a very dirty carpet (smelled), very old furniture and eventhough it guaranteed me two beds, there was only one bed ... and an old mattress to sleep on floor !!!! It took three days to attend the hearing without offering any solutions, so we had to leave the apartment and go to another site more habitable. He then refused to refund the money or even a part of it.
Watch out !!! I booked a room with This Man, and when i paid've Already Said That it was busy, and Offered me another of like Characteristics. The site was a flat in work on the facade and rooms with a very dirty carpet (it stunk), very old furniture and eventhough it guaranteed me two beds, there was only one bed ... and an old mattress to sleep on the soil !!!! It Took three days to make Themselves without offering any solutions, so we HAD to leave the apartment and go to another site more habitable. Then I refused to refund the money, not even a part of it.
Cuidado!!! Reservé una habitación con este señor, y cuando ya había pagado me dijo que ya estava ocupada, pero que me ofrecía otra de similares características. El sitio era un apartamento en obras en la fachada y con las habitaciones con una moqueta muy sucia (apestaba), mobiliario muy viejo y apesar de que me garantizó dos camas, solo había una cama... y un colchón viejo para dormir en el suelo!!!! Tardó tres días en personarse sin ofrecernos ninguna solución, por lo que tuvimos que dejar el apartamento e ir a otro sitio mas habitable. Luego se negó a devolvernos el dinero, ni siquiera una parte del mismo.

We had a very nice vacation in London. The apartment was almost as expected! At the Photos you saw a room with two beds inside, but in the en it was one bad an two matrass at the ground. The rest of the description was correct. But however, the apartment was clean an totally ok. there weren’t trouble with the other guests (shower, kitchen or toilet). The check in was also very easy. In total it was more or less what we expected and for the price totally ok.
Thanks to Sidney...
Nice place for a small visit to London. 30 min from the center by bus. Just what you need for a couple with two chidren.
Presidential Suite by London Bridge’:
It´s recommendable suite
Traffic in London is quite heavy and some noise come into the room, but room is clean and reasonable.
It´s easy to travel center of London and district areas.

We had the pleasure of meeting Sydney as we only stayed one night. However, instructions for accessing the property were not accurate and took little discomfort so that they were. The property is shabby but clean, correct other tenants. It is not a type suitable accommodation to go with children, although I must say I slept wonderfully
No tuvimos el gusto de conocer a Sidney ya que sólo estuvimos una noche. No obstante, las instrucciones para acceder a la propiedad eran precisas y se tomó no pocas molestias para que así lo fueran. La propiedad es cutre pero límpia, el resto de inquilinos correcto. No es un tipo de alojamiento adecuado para ir con niños, aunque también debo decir que dormimos estupendamente
Clean flat, helpful owner, good location. I would highly reccomend this flat.
We've been staying in this flat for three nights with our family of 4 people. The kids had comfortable mattresses and the bed in the other room was very comfortable as well. We found everything we needed in the kitchen and had a great time! The fact that we could securely park our car although we were really central was especially positive. We loved to go into the city by bus, there were several bus stops close to the flat. Sidney was very friendly and helpful and he managed to meet us immediately when we came in! Thanks again! Altogether, we would love to come again some day, it's been a perfect stay- only too short! :)
We had a very pleasant stay at the Heston House. The station was close and there were small shops where we could buy groceries. The room we stayed in was clean and well kept, the only downside was that there was a train going by every five minutes and the tracks were only about ten meters away from our window, so there was a lot of noise at night. For light sleepers like myself this was something unpleasant and I think it should have been made clear in the accommodation description. Everything else in the house was okay, the bathroom and kitchen were both clean. I would definitely stay at the house again, but in a different room at the other side of the building.
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).
