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

This is a small, very clean, no-frills hotel that offers excellent value for the frugal traveler. Small rooms, amazingly quiet, with cheerful, friendly & helpful staff. Very close to the tube station, and an easy tube ride to central London. Bring your own alarm clock and face cloth. No a/c, and the windows don't open (only real negative thing about... More

I booked this hotel as central London hotels were just too expensive. This Travelodge is about 25 minutes from Victoria Railway station by underground or overground rail. The hotel is immediately next to the underground station; 35 meters. Staff at reception were very friendly and accommodating and did everything to make our stay comfortable. The rooms have recently been upgraded... More

I booked this hotel because it was inexpensive, near a tube, and you know what you are getting with Travelodge. It had no catering facilities but there were eateries within easy walking distance. The only problem really was the heat. Each room had its own fan but this wasn't enough to cool the room sufficiently for it to be comfortable... More

Hotelli sijaitsee Balhamin metroaseman vieressä. Hyvät julkiset kulkuyhteydet kaikkialle Lontooseen. Huone on perusvarusteltu siisti ja tilava. Hyvä sänky. Hiljainen ja rauhallinen.Tilava kylpyhuone. Merkittävä puute kesällä oli ilmastoinnin puuttuminen. Sen korvasi huoneeseen tuotu tuuletin. Ilmastoinnin puutteesta huolimatta saimme nukuttua yömme hyvin. Yleisarvosanamme on erinomainen ja se perustuu hyvään hinta-laatu-suhteeseen. Suosittelemme. The hotel is located in Balham Underground Station. Good public transport... More

Great hotel, does everything you expect for the price. Location is excellent dont be put off by the road or railway and is super convenient for any Central London stay (14mins into Victoria by train). BUT until the ventilation is working again the rooms are too HOT and ruins the stay.

I needed a value hotel for a night out in Clapham - and the Balham T/L was just right. Next door to the underground station, it's perfect as a base when I needed to be out and about in London and Clapham at night... just a short night bus ride from my evening out.
