My husband and I stayed here following a friend's party in South London - easier than the long train ride home! It is newly refurbished, very smart if extremely small. Tiny bathroom, but all perfectly adequate. It was quite warm but as it absolutely freezing outside - we didn't mind at all!! Reception very polite. Would definitely stay again if... More

We stayed here for three nights and didn't get a good nights sleep once - the staff are lovely and the rooms are standard travelodge, but the heat is a massive issue - as others have said, there is no air conditioning, the windows don't open, and the supplied fan is entirely inadequate. Having spoken to a friend who lives... More

Would not have like to have stayed here on a really hot night! Also avoided the higher floors as they are even hotter. Have now stayed twice, apart from the comments about ventilation, and yes you wonder how this remotely meets building standards, its a standard Travelodge. Very close to Balham Railways Station and bridge which does make it noisy.

This is a great budget hotel, terrific location, friendly staff. But WHY oh why did they build a hotel in the 21st century with no air conditioning and windows that don't open? Staff will provide an (old fashioned) electric fan but it's far too noisy to leave on for more than a few minutes. The room was unbearably hot, it... More

Ideal for the train. Never missed one from Friday to Sunday re: International Convention Of Jehovah's Witnesses 2014. Sadly no 24hr reception when I tried to get someone to have a word with my noisy neighbours.Result no sleep. One massive migraine. Hence I have plans to return.

The location was perfect for what we wanted and the bed was nice and comfy. The decor was tastefully modern and we quite liked our view of the train station. The staff were very friendly and helpful. However, the rooms were very stuffy because none of the windows in the hotel open and the shower seemed to only have one... More

I was put into room 3 on the ground floor. The room was next to the overland railway track and a laneway which was constantly lit. The curtains did not begin to block out the light from outside so the room was never dark. Coupled with the fact that trains pass every 3 - 4 minutes most of the day... More

Convenient for what we were doing but as windows do not open then the room got unbearably hot- so hot that it melted a chocolate bar and curdled the long life milk cartons supplied by Travelodge. Local management tried to ease things by putting fans in the room but that only circulated the HOT air. Serious risk to young children... More
