Cosy first floor studio .Convenient for central London.Sleeps two
Because of the studio's convenient location, and its excellent transport links, this studio provides guests with ready access to all the sights and sounds of central London but at a very affordable price. The studio is 12.5 kms from London's central point, Charing Cross
This studio apartment is on the first floor of a detached house 10 minutes walk away from the local railway station. Trains go to East Croydon (3 mins) , South Croydon (10 mins), London Bridge (10 mins), Victoria (20 mins) and myriad other destinations. The studio affords privacy and is set in a friendly house. The property is centrally heated and all utility bills are included in the nightly rate. There is a wall mounted TV and free WI FI internet access. There are plenty of shops and pubs just 10 minutes walk away and central Croydon is just a 3 minute train ride away.
During the day, there are 6 trains every hour to London Bridge. Two of these trains are fast (a 10 minute journey), 2 trains stop just once, and the remaining 2 trains are slow (journey time 25 minutes). There is also a regular and frequent train service to London Victoria from the same station.
Night trains run hourly from London Victoria, or every 30 minutes from London Bridge, throughout the night to East Croydon railway station. It is a 10 minute taxi ride from there to the studio.This means you can enjoy the night life of London without worrying about getting home in the early hours. Night buses run from London's West End to London Bridge throughout the night..
The studio's sleeping facilities include a double bed, and a bed-settee. The facilities are thus suitable for a couple sharing the double bed or for two single people (one in the double bed, the other on the bed-settee). We are unable to accept a group size of more than 2 people. The studio does not have en-suite bathroom facilities although there are 2 shared bathrooms, each with a shower. Although the bathrooms are shared with the family, a queue is unlikely to occur.
The owners live on the ground floor and have 3 cats. Although the cats are not permitted in the studio, guests may encounter them on the landing or on the stairs. Guests who dislike cats or have an allergy to them should not book.
The studio apartment is conveniently situated for many of London's tourist attractions as well as its major business and commercial centres. Take a train to London Victoria and you will be in the West End with its museums, art galleries, theatres, restaurants, shops and historic buildings. Take a train to London Bridge (10 mins) and you will find yourself in the City of London and its myriad financial institutions and historic buildings. Take a boat trip on the Thames to see London east to west or visit Greenwich Maritime Village for its history and beautiful architecture. And then return to the studio where a well equipped kitchen and other creature comforts await you. Excellent value for money!
Shopping for provisions can be done in the local shopping centre of South Norwood or in Croydon town centre, which is London's biggest shopping centre outside central London. Croydon has many pubs and nightclubs and has Fairfield Halls for concert goers and a theatre. There are frequent bus, as well as train, services between Norwood Junction and Croydon town centre.
We believe the studio offers excellent value for money to the discerning and canny visitor to London!
Street parking is available but it is not free - a parking permit will need to be purchased if parking penalties are to be avoided..
Guests who may be allergic to, or who have a strong dislike of cats will not be comfortable here and should not book..
