Hotel Balkan is a good hotel with spacious room and bathroom. Street outside is noisy sometimes, but that goes for all of London. Breakfast can sometimes be difficult to get if there are many guests and 9 is too early to stop serving it.

At first, when I arrived to this hotel I was a bit disappointed as there were building works on the go. Once in the room I liked it. The room was spacious and clean, just I didn't like to be below the ground floor as from the windows you could only see the cars going by and smell the smog.... More

It is a small & friendly hotel with a reasonable price in Zone2 within a few minutes walk from Shepherd's Bush tube station. It is a great location for anyone visiting London. We had a street-view 3-bed-room on the upstairs, just for sleeping it was ok though a little bit noisy. Reception is in a separate building. Breakfast was OK.... More

Stayed at this hotel for five days in August with my partner. After reading some of the reviews on here we were a little worried about the standards and cleanliness, but we found no problems at all. The hotel is what you would expect from a 2 star - very basic but clean and tidy, and the staff were helpful... More

I booked a room at the Balkan for one night at £49 to attend a gig at the Shepards Bush O2. When I arrived there was a notice on the door saying if shut, which it was, go to the Euro Hotel next door. If this happened to me abroad I would be pretty upset but at least at home... More

I booked through Booking.com for 1 night at £44. For this price in London I knew it would be a no frills stay, and that is what I got. There was a TV, bed, wifi and bathroom; This is what I expected and needed, so the Hotel Balkan does what it says on the tin.
