All in all a pretty standard experience for a Travelodge, except for the bedsheets (under the duvet) being covered in human hair... When this was reported with a request that the bed be remade while we were out to dinner, we returned to find no change and the receptionist gave us a clean sheet to make the bed ourselves -...

The Travelodge group provide basic rooms well located for public transport. Friendly staff and clean rooms but the pillows are awful - too hard and lumpy. In addition no fresh air so the room tends to be stuffy and hot. The bathroom is a little small and cramped.

Good travel links next to Balham station and all staff are helpful. Clean shower but the shower curtain was very flimsy so water can leak onto the floor, very hard uncomfortable bed. Reasonably quiet considering location. No air conditioning in room and also sealed windows, the room can seem airless and hot. A fan was provided but this didn't help.... More

The room was unpleasantly hot and so we didn't sleep well. There were no opening windows and no ac. The Manager apologised and agreed it was a problem in summer. They did provide a fan or it would have been unbearable. Don't use this hotel in summer months.

Comfortable, clean basic room. Convenient for rail travel. As no restaurant facility the snack vending machine could be stocked more regularly although very convenient to shops. Rooms stuffy and hot. No ventilation or air conditioning!

We stayed in travelodge very recently, the location is excellent but the hotel is far far too hot, the widows do not open, no air in the room at all. A very inadequate fan circulates hot stuffy air and to add there is not even an extractor fan in the bathroom/ toilet area. You actually do feel like you can't... More

Travelodge Balham is in an ideal location if visiting Balham. It is basic, clean and with most things you need. If you want 5 star then you need to pay for it! It is right next to Balham station and very central for local attractions, pubs, restaurants, etc. we took the boat cruise to Greenwich which was well worth the... More
