We like it and we don't need to write more than this. This is to be force to write, we did not like it at all. Why we have to write too many sentences it. It could be a pleasure to write not to be forced to write 200 characters. Not happy at all.

I stayed here for four nights whilst on business in the area. I had a room on the top (third) floor in Hotel Balkan itself. The room was a decent size and looked as if it had been recently refurbished. It was nicely decorated and well appointed with a small fridge and tea and coffee facilities. The mattress was firm...

Not at all impressed and where did they obtain the 2 Star rating? Because of where we needed to be in London (Hammersmith) it seemed a good idea at the time based on the price and previous comments. They had fire doors wedged open. The good part was the en-suite had recently been updated but they forgot to include anywhere... More

Budget hotel is exactly what this is, so if you're after something flash or luxurious this is not the hotel for you. We were after a place for 6 of us to crash in so that we could go explore London and that's exactly what it did, 10 minute walk to the tube station and 15 minute walk to the... More

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
