Nice apartment in a reasonably convenient location

  • 3 of 5

Pictures are accurate - this is nice modern(ish) apartment in the Lewisham area of London. A short stroll to the Lewisham DLR station for easy access to London underground and other transportation. We were met by Nanna who I understand is the cleaner/caretaker for the owner Eli. I never met Eli but did speak to her - a very nice woman from my brief chat. Unfortunately we did have an issue during our stay - the hot water system decided to pack it in whilst we were there. A few phone calls to Nanna who tried to assist as best she can. Eventually the next day it was escalated to Eli (should've been sooner). She was very sorry and apologetic so despite the cold water & the bad experience overall, I can't fault the care taken by Nanna and Eli - only that it could've been brought to Eli's attention sooner. We were leaving before a technician had a chance to fix it, so we had 2 days without hot water. Brrrr.

So so apartment in out of the way location

  • 3 of 5

Upon first entering the building, you are hit with an unpleasant odor in the main lobby and then again in the stairway. The beds were stiff and uncomfortable. We all had a hard time sleeping on them. The water heater is solar powered, which worked great on bright, sunny days. If you took a shower at night or in the morning, however, it was quite cold. The housekeeper didn't explain very well how to turn on the regular water heater. Also, the shower in the smaller bathroom didn't drain very well. Other than that, it was clean and within walking distance to the Lewisham train station.

Well kept, clean and recently updated.

  • 5 of 5

Nice place and clean. Nana did a nice job communicating. Great local ethnic foods within 10-15 minute walk. We ate Sri Lanken and Turkish for dinner. Two small markets within five minute walks. Bigger market 15 minute walk. I underestimated how bad London traffic is so the trips to downtown took 35-50 minutes. Cost for UberX was 13-20 pounds. It was extremely hot for London so we kept the huge windows open to keep it very comfortable. This in turn highlighted how noisy the local traffic is. Closing the windows did an excellent job of canceling the noise but we did not have that option. The lift/elevator for my father was perfect.

Grubby, noisy, uncomfortable, overall amenities shocking

  • 1 of 5

Apartment was grubby, wet towels left, lack of crockery and glasses. Dirty balcony with crap left on it. Curtains that don't cover the whole window. It states it sleeps 6 with sofa bed. Sofa bed had no bedding, curtains covered 2/3 of window so light comes in and so can everyone' waking past. When called the owner to complain was told that it was not meant to be used as a bedroom. It said it slept 6 using that room! It took a day to get bedding for that bed.

Other bedroom again curtains did not cover the windows sober had to use ironing boards and hovers to push curtains against the wall to try and keep the light out. The apartment is next to a 24 hour Tesco garage so the cars playing music wake you up throughout the night.

The beds were small and hard and the bed lining was grubby and had holes in it.

The comunal areas stink of smoke and sgdin are dirty.

The sink in the kitchen was blocked and woukd not drain so stunk.

We even had to clean the kettle before using it!

It looks lovely on the website but it's not.

I travel a lot with work and stay in many apartments and this was a let now, very very poor.

Apartment Stay

  • 4 of 5

Very well-looked-after, spacious apartment. Plenty of room for 4 people. It contains everything you need for a short stay, apart from drinking glasses! Considering it is close to a main road it is nice and quiet. The temperature was always warm. (in winter time) Walking distance to Lewisham railway station and shopping precinct. We appreciated the parking spot even though we had to pay extra for it. There is hardly anywhere to park around SE London without a permit.

Lewisham is in south east London, within easy reach of all the capital has to offer from fashion, food, film and art to theatre. Closer to the home, Greenwich, Blackheath and the River Thames are literally minutes away.

ALGERNON apartment is just a short stroll away from Lewisham Station and offer the area a completely new way of urban contemporary living. Local shopping, which includes a charming farmers’ market, will expand with additional retail space which may include a Tesco Metro or similar and a Creative Quarter for artisans working in design, fashion or pottery etc.

Central London is at your fingertips and combined with charming local spots like Blackheath and Greenwich, Lewisham is an ideal base. The eight miles to City Airport means weekend getaways from Europe are even easier and to explore Britain by car, it’s just 15 miles to the M25 and the wider motorway network

London Bridge and the South Bank, 8 minutes from Lewisham, is an area rich in culture. The walk along the Thames takes you through historic winding cobble stone streets via Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the Tate Modern, the Oxo Tower restaurant, the British Film Institute and the Royal Festival Hall. Head out from Borough Market, a gourmet’s delight, and end up with glorious views from the London Eye.

The bustling scene of London’s world-renowned theatre land showing an array of live classic and contemporary performances is just 28 minutes from home.

The dramatic skyline of Canary Wharf by the Thames defines London’s new financial district, with its host of employers and large luxury shopping centres, 25 minutes away by DLR. Boutiques and upmarket retailers mix with a range of eateries, including Ubon and Jamie Oliver’s delicious Italian. Waterside bars provide the perfect setting for an alfresco drink in the summer.

The London skyline at night, from historic Westminster and Big Ben to the sparkling modern day: London Eye, breathtaking just 21 minutes from home.

Historic Greenwich is a World Heritage Site and is home to Greenwich Mean Time and the Meridian Line and historic landmarks such as the National Maritime Museum and Cutty Shark. It’s a beautiful place of contrast, from the awe inspiring architecture through to the tranquil open spaces and views of Greenwich Park, bustling quaint street markets and cosy pubs and eateries.

The capital has one of the largest concentrations of leading universities and higher education institutions in the world, with an ever growing student population. Famous institutions like the LSE and Kings College London are, amongst others, only a tube ride away. University of Greenwich is 5 minutes away by DLR.
