|Address||Fairlawn Mansions, SE145PL London, United Kingdom|
|Property type||Private room|

The flat, which is very comfortable, has everything you need, including wireless Internet, a shared bathroom, kitchen, microwave, washing machine, fridge and a back garden. You also have your own key, so you can look your room.
The flat is 200 meters from New Cross Gate 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).
There are also numerous buses, which pass the flat 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!
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 maintained daily to a high standard.
In the local area you will find everything you need for a great stay; there are 24 hour food shops, cafes, restaurants, a big supermarket (Sainsbury’s) and bars 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.

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...
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

Hola, me llamo Carmen,
Si insisten que les comente como me fue en mis vacaciones con mi familia, les diré que fue lamentable.
Les cuento brevemente, porque deseo olvidarlo.
Cuando llegamos vimos que la fachada estaba muy descuidada, no nos creímos ni que fuera esa la casa, no había nadie para recibirnos y darnos la llave en mano. Le llamamos por teléfono, llamamos al timbre, después de tanta insistencia de tocar el timbre las inquilinas del piso nos dieron la llave para subir a la habitación, tanto el pasillo como las escaleras, tenía un olor muy desagradable, cuando llegamos a la habitación era una vergüenza, no nos creíamos que hubiéramos pagado para eso, solamente teníamos una televisión que no funcionaba, además estaba de cara a la pared sin mueble en que ponerlo, no teníamos ni un armario, el espejo que tenia estaba todo oxidado y sucio, solamente teníamos una de esas mesas y cuatro sillas de picnic para comer, tenía solo 1 cama de matrimonio y solo dos colchones pequeños individuales sin somier, por primera vez tuve que pagar para dormir toda la semana en el suelo con mi esposo.
La limpieza lo tuve que hacerla yo, porque no lo hacen.
Las sabanas, dudo que hayan estado limpias y toallas no dan.
Si me hubieran contestado el e-mail que les envíe preguntando sobre las sabanas y toallas, yo lo hubiera llevado y no lo hubiera comprado.
En el piso había cinco habitaciones con varias personas dentro hospedas, nosotros éramos cuatro, te puedes imaginar el calvario para ir al baño y ducharse. Para ducharse era otra historia porque te duchabas con agua muy fría o te caída agua hirviendo, corrías el peligro que te salgan ampollas.
Todo el mobiliario era muy viejo.
En resumen no volvería a hospedarme
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).
We stayed in the presidential suite, which was a big room, with a double bed, a couch and table with chairs. While most of the stuff was obviously ikea stuff it was more than sufficient for the few nights we spent there. Unfortunately the room was next to a busy road with a lot of sirenes. I found it quite hard to sleep there. I recommend getting another room at this place. I also recommend reading the key instructions carefully ;)
Appartement bien desservi en transports mais pas bien situé.
La chambre est relativement "correcte" (mais bruyante) mais l'appartement est sale.
Nous n'avons jamais rencontré Sidney, juste la femme de ménage qui ne parle pas un mot d'anglais.... (contradictoire avec les échanges par email reçus)
Le wifi ne fonctionne quasiment pas voire pas du tout.
Question hygiène, c'est très limite (mauvaise odeur, mal entretenu, salle de bain et wc sale, = 1 seul pour toutes les chambres, non indiqué dans l'annonce).
Bref, pas aussi agréable que la photo semble paraître, annonce mensongère?
Nous avons été renfermé dehors un soir, pas agréable du tout....
Super Place for trips to the city,
shops and great communication
kitchen, bathroom, clean rooms
wifi, washing machine
