We could not have asked for a better location, right next door to the Balham Station, and surrounded by eating options and supermarkets. Would love to have been able to open the window in the room, but Company policy forbids this. Whilst the room is good value for money, there is simply not enough storage for 2 people staying 5...

My husband and I have stayed here several times. The staff are always helpful and gracious and the rooms are cosy and comfortable and well insulated from any exterior noise. Very convenient for travel as the hotel is situated next to the underground and overland railway stations.

The hotel was convenient for where we wanted to be but it was very basic. No storage space - no drawers and just open hanging space for 5 items. No hair dryer. There were tea/coffee making facilities in the room.

We've just returned from a 3 night break staying at this hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is next to the underground and railway stations. The northern line gets you into the West End or City in 25 minutes, the train gets into Victoria in about 15 minutes. Tip - use a contactless payment card on the underground,... More

The travelodge is right next to the tube and train station which is good but also bad as you can hear trains going by every 5 minutes which isn't good if your a light sleeper. The rooms also get very hot as the windows don't open and no air con!

This Travelodge is located right next door to Balham Train & Tube station making it extremely convenient but you sacrifice this for some train noise. Rooms are functional and value for money if you book well in advance but should be <£50. However, when staying in the summer, the rooms can be unbearably hot and the fan provided just fans... More

This hotel is in a Great location being bang in the middle of Balham. It is quite new. The front reception is pretty bare and has a self service machine for snacks and drinks which doesn't seem to work properly. Checkin and out was easy and staff why helpful and friendly. The room was good value for money, unfortunately though... More

I was expecting comfortable beds, it seems that this is not the case if you choose a twin room, the single beds were so narrow that you nearly fall out. I would like to say they were 2ft 6in wide, but they felt like only 2ft wide. It would have been great to have had 3ft wide beds, there was... More

Stayed here 30th dec -1st jan over New Years payed 100£ for two people for two nights! Cannot go wrong. Very basic but clean, that's all you want. It's not in the best area but right next to tube station so it's perfect. I would recommend staying here if your not staying in the hotel all day! I would come... More
