Overnight business trip to south London Clean and smart room if basic. Very convenient for travel as right next door to the station and tube. No air con which in summer makes it a bit of a hot night. Train sounds were noticeable at night and in morning. Pleasant staff, very basic breakfast options. Overall it did the job OK.

My boyfriend and I stayed here on Saturday night as we were meeting friends in the Balham area. Arrived late afternoon and the staff member who checked us in was very friendly and provided us with complementary water. The room and bathroom were both clean but the bed was only made up with a sheet, and although it was a... More

The staff at Balham Travelodge are extremely welcoming and deserve recognition for this. The hotel itself is clean, is in an excellent location next to the tube and rail station and you can set off on foot if you enjoy longer walks and reach Wandsworth Common or the Thames near Battersea, for example. Many good pubs and restaurants are right... More

The location is ideal. The buses( the 155, etc) pass right there, the underground train stations are just outside the door. Wished the room had AC instead of a table fan though. However the room was clean and tidy. The shower was a bit small and my elbows hit the brick red plastic tiles lying the walls when showering. Some... More

Stayed there in July'16 for a night. The best part is it is right next to the underground station and in the main market. Nice and comfortable rooms. Clean bathroom. I would stay again. Worth the money.

Great location right next to Balham tube Rooms facing south away from the railway line are the quietest. Try and book a room on the lower floors as they are less hot. There is no air con so make sure you get a fan in the room if you can. Great value for London - just over £50 per night.... More

Have just come back from a two night stay at this hotel, everything was great! The reception staff were so friendly and helpful as we checked in and throughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble. Hotel itself was in a perfect location, Balham tube literally a minute away and the Travelodge was right in the centre of everything. Plenty... More

Fantastic location right next to the train and underground stations. Conveniently located near lots of places to eat which makes breakfast choices plentiful. Hotel room was great, smelt very clean and fresh. Was quite a warm room as the weekend was good weather but there was a fan provided which came in handy!!
