Under £50 for a comfortable night in London is excellent value. The situation, by the underground in Balham, was perfect for my visit. We were on the road side rather than the train side of the hotel and it wasn't too noisy. Some reviews have commented on the heat as the windows don't open but this did not bother us... More

Stay in London fairly regularly and usually use either Travelodge or PremierInn and this was a first time at this Travelodge and no complaints. If you use Travelodge you know what to expect from the rooms, they are basic but not really all that basic and Travlelodge have been making improvements lately to make the rooms more comfortable and after...

Booked into the Travelodge Balham as we were in London for the weekend for a family party and the hotel was located close to the venue. Hotel is really easy to find from Balham train & tube station as it is situated right beside it. The staff were super helpful & friendly and the room was clean and had what... More

I chose this hotel as it was local to the tube station. Talk about convenient. The hotel is about 20 feet from the station. Great location! The staff were friendly and even after we checked out we were allowed to leave our bags with the lady on reception as we did some shopping. The only complaint was that there was... More

Stayed here with my husband for one night - first of all, the positives: Great location next to the station, friendly helpful receptionist, room beautifully clean and a comfy bed (mattress very firm but I like that), also a very good rate for London. Not so good - our room (404) looked out onto the station platform so was noisy,... More

Stayed here for 5 nights and had a pleasant stay. Checked in by Mo who was very welcoming and efficient. Hotel is next door to Balham tube station so easy to get around. Room basic but clean. Was located on the 5th floor room 509 and did not experience any noise from the train station next door. No bath in... More

We have a number of people working in central London, and have arranged rooms for them at the Balham Travelodge, which leaves them with just a 20 minute tube journey to work. The staff have been really helpful, particularly in offering advice and practical help with regard to parking issues. The hotel is absolutely fine, great location next to the... More

Good location. Clean and comfortable. No air con in room just a very small fan so if going in summer months take note as you cannot open the windows! We were warm and it is April. Staff friendly and helpful. Parking free on roads by hotel £2.50 an hour or part thereof but free after 5.30pm until 9.30am next day.... More

Hotel is in a great location right next door to Balham tube station which sits on the northern line. A good base not far from central London but because it is a little further out it costs a lot less than other chains in London. However the rooms are way too hot. Room 507 did not have a window that... More

This hotel is very conveniently positioned next to the train and tube station. Rooms are average size, but far too hot and airless. Windows cannot be opened and a 10.5 tog duvet provided was far too heavy and unnecessary. Air conditioning would help as a small fan provided just wasn't good enough.
