Seamless check-in, clean rooms, no noise whatsoever from the trains (but we were on the other side of the building from the tracks), comfortable beds and overall a really good-value stay. It's basic but for a London hotel it was cheap and exactly what we were after.

Hiya this was our second visit to Balham Lodge, it was back in October but the system has only just let me put another review on. Second visit very similar to first in many ways, still very clean, the staff were very helpful - we needed to change rooms part way through our stay as we booked late and they... More

I stayed in this hotel recently while visiting relatives in Balham. It was very reasonably priced for London and situated about ten minutes walk from Balham Tube and Railway Stations which was very convenient for travel around London. Our room was very clean with a well appointed bathroom. Staff at the reception were very pleasant and helpful. I would certainly... More

We wanted to stay in the Streatham/Tooting area and chose Balham Lodge due to its reviews on Trip Advisor, it was everything previous reviewers have reported, not in the same league as Claridges but friendly and very clean. The bedrooms are arranged over a number of flights of stairs so guests with mobility problems need to ask for a room... More

We we're in London for sort of extended weekend. We chose Balham Lodge because of good reviews on internet and for reasonable price. And we weren't disappointed. Clean, super friendly, decent breakfast, on a peaceful place. Not much of a traffic noises or other interferences. Only a ten(ish) minute walk to train and underground station, where deaparts regular trains to... More

Friendly staff, well priced and not far from the center of London, next to a nice park, if you like to take a morning jog, ideal! Takes 10 mins to walk to the underground or overground station (Balham) Train 15 mins to Victoria, 35 mins with underground to Leicester Square. The area (Balham) has lots of nice restaurants and bars... More

Stayed for one night as had a night out in London near by. The receptionist didn't give us a great welcome and hardly said two words to us. Room was very small but expected that. Breakfast was a bit of a let down seemed like no love went into the food and again the staff here didn't welcome us -... More

Reasonably priced, friendly welcome and very clean all round. Ensuite bathroom clean, though could do with new shower head. Excellent breakfast and fresh coffee - none of the instant stuff oh no. Practical and 10 minute walk from the station.

Was in Balham for a birthday party and chose this guest house because of the reviews on trip advisor.. Very satisfied with our stay. A beautiful building, with lots of character and charm. Spotlessly clean. Stayed in room 9 at the front of the building on our first night, then another family member had a single room, number 14. Some... More

I sense people are very slightly nervous of staying at Balham Lodge and I wonder why? I think some of the photos do not do justice to the Lodge, they tend to make it look a little old fashioned and perhaps there is a thought its uncared for. We booked late wanting to stay three night, they could only fit... More
