“Great location - good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

Stayed with family, able to arrange rooms next door to each other at check in which was quick, efficient and staff were helpful throughout. Rooms clean functional and good value for the price, next to the train line and not disturbed at all by noise either inside or out. Would recommend to use for a base when visiting South London / next door to the jubilee line

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Good location as it was just a few minutes walk to the Tate Modern on South Bank and about 10 mins walk from Waterloo station. Rooms are basic but clean and newly refurbished. Our room, 708 on the top floor had a good view of the skyline and The Shard. Although railway was below, we weren't disturbed by train noise. Bed was very comfortable. Only downside was no opening window which felt a bit claustrophobic. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Plenty of eating places around. There was food festival on on the South Bank this weekend so great choice of street food and street entertainment. Enjoyed a visit to Borough Market and Maltby Street market - a great foodie weekend. Went on the London Eye late afternoon when it wasn't too busy - amazing views.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

I have stayed in Travelodges before and know what to expect so wasnt surprised by the lack of toiletries and fairly basic rooms. However, this time I was stunned that they could charge me (well my company) £171 room only.
Location wise it's not too bad and is close to Southwark Tube and bars and restauarnts on the South Bank.
However the view from my room was a close up of people passing by on trains along the nearby viaduct.
The hotel claims it has been recently refurbished by tiles were cracked in the bathroom, bits of the shower had fallen off, the movement sensing lights in the corridor didnt seem to work so it was vert diffuclt trying to get back into the room at night, there was a smell of damp and the twels were like sandpaper.
The bar does a fairly standard selection of pies, burgers, chips etc and wasn't badly priced but again you get what you pay for with the food, although Claudio who was serving was very friendly, polite and professional.
And if it wasny expensive enough the soft drinks vending machine decided to eat my money and not give me a drink.
Was it worth £171? Absolutely not. Would I have been satisfied if I had paid the more usual price of around £50? Possibly but I have stayed in bettwer Travelodges.

I booked into this hotel at the last minute and was pleasantly surprised. While basic, bring your own shower gel, shampoo, soap etc, the room was clean and very comfortable. Reception staff was fantastic, I asked for a quiet room and it really was quiet! Breakfast was good value. I would stay here again.

My bedroom was unclean and I only realised how bad when I spent all night itching!
Food from the cafe was usual microwave or quick fry food
Breakfast was good
Trains were very loud past my bedroom window!
