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!!

On the host I do not have much to say because I have not had a relationship with her, only and exclusively by email, but in respect to the house if I would comment that the pictures do not correspond to reality we have lived, it has not since been accommodation looked at the pictures, as there is an apartment if not a room we stayed 4 people. Found room in an apartment with 4 more rooms in which 4 people per room is also housed, and only has 1 bathroom for all the guests, the house is old and needs updating, has good communication by bus and train.
Sobre el anfitrión no tengo mucho que comentar ya que no he tenido relación con ella, solo y exclusivamente por email, pero respecto a la casa si me gustaría comentar que las fotos no corresponden con la realidad que hemos vivido, ya que no ha sido el alojamiento que parecía en las fotos, ya que no se trata de un apartamento si no de una habitación en la que nos hemos alojado 4 personas. Habitación que se encuentra en un piso de con 4 habitaciones más en las que también se alojan 4 personas por habitación, y solo dispone de 1 cuarto de baño para todos los huéspedes , la casa esta vieja y necesita una reforma, tiene buena comunicación en autobús y tren de cercanías.
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.
Sidney allowed me to book at really short notice. He really saved my life! I was able to call him straight away and get into the property. The process was really organised. The apartment is well placed and well connected. For sure I'll use again!
This was our very first experience with wimdu and I can say that it was really positive. Sidney is very friendly, helpful and welcoming to his lovely apartment. It is exactly as in the pictures and description and close enough to the tube station. It's a quiet place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. The view of Canary Wharf from the lounge is beautiful. I would recommend Sidney and his apartment to anyone.
THANK YOU SIDNEY!!
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.
One of our best experiences and I would definitely recommend to stay with Sidney. A really lovely guy and he even offered us some of of his granny's home made cake. He was very welcoming and chatty. It was really easy to get to the centre too!
Thanks Sidney. Can't wait to visit London again.
At first there was a problem with the apartment because of a new laquered floor so Sidney managed to fix us another apartment for the first night of our weekend. Except from that there was no problem with our stay and the apartment was as described. Very near to the subway and both restaurants, a pub and a little supermarket nearby.
Will definitely be the place very well, there are supermarkets nearby, everything clean, Connection bus or subway very close, and very comfortable room, and Hector one great person. Thanks for everything.
Volvere sin duda, el lugar muy bien, hay supermercados cerca, todo limpio, conexion en bus o en metro muy cerca, y la habitacion muy confortable, y Hector una grandisima persona. Gracias por todo.
The room was nice and clean, public transport right outside the door! I would for sure stay here again.
