“Good base”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Stopped here loads of times and its a really good location

Very easy walk to London eye, Westminster , soho

Not fond of the new mattresses if honest

Try the fire station pub for good food and drink

10 mins walk from Waterloo station

The hotel is well-situated for public transport links, local bars & restaurants. Close to the Old & New Vic theatres. The area has a nice feel to it. The room was airy and spacious and being on the 8th floor had the added benefit of a view of St Pauls and the London Eye. Would definitely return when next in London.

Very good location, great to use as a base in London as its within walking distance of Waterloo Station.
Outlook not very appealing, but a good quality Travelodge. Book early to get the best rates (we didn't!)

Stayed at this hotel for the weekend as my husband and I was going to see the bodyguard in theatre. Our room was rather small and the bathroom was as big as a broom cupboard, but for one night it's not too bad. I mean we were only in the room to sleep and have a shower. The bed was quite comfortable if I'm honest and as small as it was, the shower was nice and hot. Under £70 for the two of us including two breakfasts in London you can't really complain too much. It done it's job at the end of the day. Breakfast however was lovely, a massive improvement from a few years back. Breakfast consists of sausage, bacon, beans, tomato and scrambled egg. It is the pre packed egg though so not that nice. They have two coffee machines and a juice machine for drinks. There are croissants and bread for toast. Muffins, cereal and fresh fruit and yoghurt. You also have all your spreads, butter, jams etc. all in all there is something out there for everyone. The hot breakfast was also nice, fresh and piping hot.
If you are looking for somewhere cheap to just lay your head for a night or two, and a decent breakfast you can't really complain about this hotel.

Our second stay at this Travelodge- outstanding location and importantly for us pretty quiet at night. Room was basic as you would expect but hotel has had a makeover since our last visit. Bed very comfy but oh dear the pillows!! It was like sleeping with my head on a breeze block - so hard and uncomfortable. Realise that this is my personal preference but wish that there were softer options available as well. The very helpful receptionist did say she would pass on my comments and try to see if anything could be done to address it. Would also be good to have a socket near to the mirror to help with using hairdryer. Or put a mirror near the sockets!
Room very clean, nice bar area and would happily stay here again (pending softer pillows).
