We stayed here as we were visiting the comedy festival at The Bedford. This hotel was perfect! Right next to the station and the venue just round the corner! The room was clean, spacious and a fan was provided as it was a hot day. The staff were very helpful and friendly and offered us free bottles of water on... More

We were greeted with a warm welcome from the staff and Mo who could not do enough for us to make our stay comfortable. The hotel is in the midst of all amenities including restaurants, railway and underground and shops. The trains did not affect our stay thanks to good soundproofing.

The staff here were very helpful. Had a few problems with the key cards but that's technology for you. A bit of noise from the trains as it overlooks the railway, but it was good not to thave to walk far to the stations. You cannot open the bedroom windows but luckily the room wasn't too hot as they keep... More

Basic and as part of a group you know what your getting. We were there for a party at The Bedford. It is next to the station so very handy to get to other places. We had a ground floor room next to a walkway this wasn't a problem as it is shut at night.

Booked into the Travel Lodge at Balham as I had no running water at home, we used it predominantly for the shower and bathroom facilities, my baby slept on the bed, and found it to be comfortable. The double room was a good size and ticked all the boxes for what we needed. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful,... More

Customer service and location were good. However the room's cleanliness could be improved. The room had a strong smell of sweat, which I eventually got used to. The bathroom was clean, but not sure they were actually replacing the towels that I put in the shower when I left the room in the morning. There are instructions to put towels... More

We always stay here if we are in London. It is quiet at the back, clean and the staff are so nice. It is easy to get into London. Balham is a great area where you can get good food. Delicious curry Thali and Pickles and really reasonable cheap for London food The Honest Italian.
