“Return visit, still great value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

We've used this Travelodge a couple of times now. It's in a great location for us as we like this area of the city and there are very good transport links nearby; the bus stop for the 15 route from the Tower to Trafalgar Square, passing St Pauls and the Strand, is a 2 minute walk and there are underground stations at Bank and Cannon Street nearby. Because it's in the City area, it's fairly quiet at weekends too.

We stayed in a 4th floor room, which minimised the noise from passersby on St Swithins Lane. The room was clean and the bed was really comfortable. My only minor issue with the room was that the sink was so small, it was difficult to was in; it would have been easier to shave in the kettle!

All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful.

Unfortunately, the City Harvest café we previously used for breakfast has now closed down, but there are plenty of alternatives around. There is an All Bar One nearby on Cannon Street which is open until 11pm and the London Stone pub too, along with Boots, WHSmith and M&S food outside Cannon Street station.

If you van book early enough, this hotel represents excellent value for money and it will be the first hotel we check for our budget trips away in future.

Not cheap and definitely not on their offers of a £29 room, but this hotel is very well located in the centre of the City of London. The beds are comfortable, the hotel is clean and the accommodation is adequate. There are many eating places nearby, a very good restaurant at street level and coffee shops all over. In terms of London pricing, it is at the lower end of the price scale, but in the overall UK hotel bedroom scene, it is average priced.

Excellent location for a visit to London. This Travelodge is on a pedestrian walkway so very quiet but convenient for both Bank and Cannon Street underground stations and walking distance from St. Pauls.

On arrival the receptionist was polite, the room was very clean and well furnished. The bathroom was clean and basic but good. I think we heard the folk in the next room talking once for about a minute and then didn't hear the other guests at all. The hotel was quiet and, as it's located well off the main road (in the city anyway so nice and quiet) it was really quiet. I would recommend this for any type of stay as it is walking distance from a good few tourist spots, good for transport, and is clean and quiet. The one and only criticism is that it isn't signposted very well so is a little tricky to find but that's all. Very happy :)

Room Tip: I would guess that all rooms are equally quiet but I would presume that the higher the floor: the qu...

I arrived at about mid-day and was asked for even more money and was not able to just drop off my bag in my room; even though it was evidently ready. Bring your own shower get etc. as none is provided. The shower was nasty and flooded into the room, so I avoided using it. One receptionist was exceptional the rest ........... were not. If you need City go there - otherwise I shan't go again. Shame really. Oh and make sure you are not in a room opposite the lifts - the noise from the "Doors closing" etc. was ghastly.

TravelodgeUK, Amy from Customer Care at Travelodge London Bank, responded to this review, January 21, 2014
We are sorry to learn you are unhappy with our early check in service keithevco, our check in time is 3pm across all of our hotels however we will ensure that a number of rooms are ready from 12pm for our customers who wish to check in early. There is a £10.00 charge for this service and it is subject to availability. As a brand standard we do not provide toiletries, this is so that we are able to continue to offer competitive rates, we do however have a vending machine at reception where you can purchase any extra toiletries. The facilities we provide are expected to be in good working order so it is regrettable to learn you found your shower had a problem with the plumbing on this occasion. We also expect our lifts to be quiet and fully operational so we are sorry to learn that you were disturbed by the noise of the lift during your stay. We will be sure to pass on your feedback to the Hotel Manager so that they are able to ensure our showers and lifts are in good working order. Thank you for your feedback.

Your bulk standard Travelodge offering a couple of minutes away from Bank station. I had a quiet nights sleep in a confortable bed in a clean and tidy room. Book well in advance to get the best rates. I would not pay the rack rate for this place.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor or above.

For the proce I paid I would get a same basic room in the area with breakfast and free wi-fi. These should be included in a £98 room! Did not matter what I was asking for, the only answer I always get was I have to pay extra for that. This is ok in a matter of a £45 room but not for the price I paid in Travelodge.
