Please keep in mind it's a TRAVELODGE, not THE RITZ.
This is by far the best TRAVELODGE we have stayed in. Fantastic value, great location, it's own bar and friendly STAFF.
After reading some earlier reviews, about not friendly staff and noise from the train station, I must I had second thoughts at what we had booked for our 1st WEDDING ANNIVERSARY, but we are the type of people that make our own minds up and speak what we find.
I have never stopped in this area before, so here goes.
Firstly, we got to the hotel about 1pm. Check-in is not until 3pm, you can check in at an extra cost of £10. I have never understood this practice, your room is either ready or it is not! What difference does an extra £10 make, does the room get itself ready? I don't think so, this dropped it a star. But other than that, the reception staff was very pleasant and I did like the idea of donating a pound to charity for each bag you left while you used the left luggage facility. This was for the Mac Millan Cancer Fund, to which you put your donation in the collection tin yourself. GREAT IDEA.
We was and at the time of doing this review still are on the 7th floor(top) entering our room the was a strange type of smell, but I do think it may be a cheap type of air freshener, hence that lost the other star.
The room was spotless, basic, but what the hell we paid for basic. Fine by us. The bar was also used as the breakfast room, but also clean and tidy, slight problem in the bar gents toilets with the ceiling tiles on the sink, don't know what happened their! But easily solved. Can't speak for the ladies toilets for oblivious reasons. We could see the train tracks from our room, but never heard them day or night. In fact never heard any noise from anything.
Bar prices are good, compared to the 3 pubs near by.
Southwark tube station less than 5 mins walk away. Exit tube station cross the road and straight down to the right of the big office type building opposite to get there. 24 hour mini supermarket next to the Travelodge, very handy.
OVERALL, use the tube train to get anywhere you want to go. Feels a very safe area. The Travelodge great budget hotel.
If your rich, use the RITZ, if you not and want a base use SOUTHWARK TRAVELODGE.
I hope this helps, it is an honest and down to earth review.
It is now midnight and the bar is now filling up, with patrions coming back from the shows.
