The Fire Alarm starts ringing in the middle of the night, the hotel was in construction and the noise begins at 08:00AM and when you ask the constructors to stop they pretend they don't understand you. And the staff are arrogant, rude and useless, with complete desrespect for their customers, particularly with women! Worst hotel i've ever been to.

This "hotel" has some good points: Good price for the area. Nearby restaurants. Two underground stations nearby. Eventim Apollo nearby. Free wi-fi. Fridge in room. Mostly new bathroom. Okay breakfast. Unfortunately it also has a number of bad points which outweigh the good points: The room was cold and the bed covers were really. The top bed covers were, shall... More

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.
