My friend and I stayed here for about a week and a half while on holiday. The room we booked was small but nice and clean. We had a window facing the street so at night the traffic was noisy. The staff were very friendly and helpful as necessary. The location is very close to an underground station so going... More

This small, friendly hotel was a brilliant find. We were attending a wedding in Central London, so South Clapham tube being 5 minutes away was a bonus, as is the car parking, which is reasonable at a fiver a night. The staff are young and helpful, the ensuite rooms are clean, comfortable and big enough for us. earplugs were provided,... More

Hot day so we had to have window open onto noisy street with pub beer garden close by. However, we didn't have any problems sleeping. Very clean and very friendly staff. Excellent location - close to tube, shops and restaurants.

We were running from a close hotel and found The Gateway Hotel. The young lady at the reception, Anna, was absolutely lovely and helped us so much! Sadly, we could only stay one night, as the hotel was fully booked. We would have loved to stay longer. Our room was big, neat and tidy; clean bathroom. We were very happy!... More

Superb. Very helpful and friendly staff (Alexander on main reception was amazingly welcoming). Very well presented room, clean and well equipped. We stayed as a couple with our 2 year old son whilst visiting friends in the local area. We will DEFINITELY be using The Gateway again.

Modest hotel. It was clean and well kept with the features to be expected of an economy establishment. Reception closed at 9 and the heating was not on in my small room. Furnishings all very modest and functional. The staff recommended the "Common Room" eatery nearby for breakfast rather than their pre-packed offering. Good advice.

I stayed in this hotel for 8 nights while in London. It is just 2 mins to get Clapham South tube station. So, it was very easy to get to the city. Free Wi-Fi worked well. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Good value for money. There were very loud traffic sounds in the room. You even can find... More
