Travelodge London Waterloo Hotel
Ranked #434 of 1,078 Hotels in London
Reviewed July 12, 2014

During our one week stay in London, we were just after a simple room which we could use as a base for our sightseeing. Very close to Waterloo station and walking distance to many of the sights. The room itself was small but adequate. The staff were friendly and efficient but for some reason would never top up our milk or tea and coffee? Even though he weather was mild, the room was stuffy and we had to have the fan running all night in some cases. Overall served its purpose and was cheap compared to other similar accommodations.

Room Tip: Not facing Waterloo road as you may need to sleep with the window open.

Just returned from a 4 night stay. It's not the ritz but it's lovely, clean, happy welcoming staff and very acceptable food. Location is perfect..
If you are looking for central London you will not get better for the money.. it's lovely. .
I was very happy and I would recommend you stay here. Only issue I experienced was, I was on the top floor and it was very warm, but i was supplied with a floor standing fan was in my room.
Enjoy London

This is a travelodge. Simple and basic. Food and drink are either open 24hrs or very late, as we ordered wine and a pizza at 1am.
Breakfast is not included but it cost £8 and is all you can eat including English breakfast.
Not a fortune but not a 5 star hotel.

My wife and I stayed at the Travelodge in Waterloo Road, London this week for two nights, the room was clean and comfortable and I can recommend this hotel to visitors to Central London, theatre land, the London Eye, and all visitor attractions are within walking distance of this hotel.

The hotel staff were friendly and trying to please, the bar area has been upgraded and basic food is available at reasonable cost. The buffet breakfast is basic, but excellent, and all in all you can't ask for more.

The only downside is no air conditioning, which in London can be torture, especially when trying to get a good nights sleep, having said that, the Hotel does provide a fan in the room which is a godsend.

All in all, a hotel well worth recommendation.

This Travelodge is one of the better ones in which I've stayed, not least because it has a bar/cafe/offers cooked breakfasts. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, everything worked (excellent shower) and although a bit dark and on the hot side, you don't go to London to spend all day in your hotel room!
The only slight negative is maybe the location... unlike others in central London, the immediate area is maybe not so great but nevertheless, it's only a 5 minute walk to Waterloo station, plus the Old Vic is just up the road.
Recommended.

Actually the hotel was fine, bedrooms up to standard generally but two bulbs gone, one in the lobby and the one in the bathroom so couldn't even leave the bathroom door open to get light in. Staff said they would get it fixed whilst we were out but didn't and said they would offer us a voucher but didn't. Would we go back? Probably but a bit disappointing.

I stayed here back in February this year, it was better than I anticipated.

Staff- They were all friendly and welcoming. They would get you anything you needed.

Room - I was in a double room at the front of hotel with large windows, had a view of the London eye. The room was spotless and so was the bathroom. Had kettle and mugs in room if you wished to make drinks. It did get a bit hot throughout the night as duvet was quite thick.

Location- It is about a 4 minute walk down to Waterloo station & underground which is convenient and also off licences and take aways near by if you needed them.

Food - Breakfast was good, apart from lack of glasses for juice at some points but that quickly was sorted. Also I had an evening meal which was very nice.

Overall was a good price for room and breakfast for 3 days. I am returning in August!

Stayed: February 2014
