“friendly stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014

We stayed at the travelodge for 5 nights.Found the staff on arrival friendly and welcoming as we arrived late on and were glad to book in .Room tidy comfortable and cosy a thank you to the cleaning staff who done a good job and also were helpful.Area close to tube and has several small shops nearby if you need things during your visit.This area has an early start time for work and you can hear the footsteps from early morning say from about 6.30 no need to set your alarm but not a problem if like us you intend to be up early to sightsee and enjoy the day. would certainly recommend this travelodge and would hope to stay there again.

While this hotel was probably not the most holiday central of residences, it was as central to the tube as we could have hoped. The rooms are well proportioned and fresh from renovation with all the necessary extras. The staff here were wonderful and helpful. I would say that there could be more air conditioning in the rooms as we happened to be in London during the hottest weeks of the year thus far, but it's Britain, how are we to know it'll get that hot? All around lovely, though!

Visited this place with another couple on a weekend during the school holidays. The staff: excellent, professional and friendly! The room: clean, spacious and comfortable with a good shower and a fan. The price: very reasonable and excellent for this part of the city. The location: struggled a bit for a beer on the Saturday night as this place is in the finance/office area of London. Nearly all the bars were closed on Saturday afternoon and all were closed by 8pm. The plus side is it is a 1-2 minute walk from bank tube station and can street tube station and a 7-9 minute walk from St Paul's tube station! There is a bar that opens Monday to Friday on the outside of the hotel and they were very welcoming. All good and an excellent hotel to stay at! Would recommend.

Only a few steps from Bank or Cannon Street tube station. The hotel is down a walk way so very little traffic noise. There is a sainsburys and M&S nearby for snacks or breakfast stuff if you don't want to eat out. The Tower of London is within walking distance as is the Thames. A lovely hotel, not masses of storage if staying longer than a few days, but we managed. The reception staff were friendly and lovely.

Overall exactly what you would expect from a Travelodge. Clean room, all the stuff you need, everything has a purpose, nothing is just fancy crap for extra money.

With this particular stay, though, I'd like to point out a few things that were a bit weird. Note that these are just the observations of one person, and you most likely won't encounter any of them. But just in case.

1. The shower - a couple times, it just started switching randomly between freezing cold and burning hot, right in mid-shower, even though it was set on a specific temperature. This always happened in the evening or at night, so I assume it might have something to do with a lot of people showering at once across the hotel.

2. The truck - there was a truck coming every night with clean bedsheets or something like that. It made gargantuan noises that would make the Old Ones crap themselves with fear, and it made it pretty much impossible to sleep for the 15-30 minutes it was there. If it can't come in the afternoon, could it at least come in the morning, when people are actually kind of awake for the most part? Anyway, ask for a room that does NOT have windows looking into the back street (Sherborne Lane), if you value your ears.

3. The maintenance guy - we had bought the late check-out option, just in case we needed it. It lets you check out at 2PM instead of noon. We were all packed up and ready to go by noon anyway, just making some final arrangements, when a guy (presumably a maintenance man) knocked on the door, and tried to kick us out at 12:18. I tried to explain that we had the late check-out thing (confirmed later by a receptionist asking us why we're leaving so early, so I know we definitely had it), but he didn't seem to understand much English, and insisted that we go now. Since, as I said, the late check-out was just a "what if" thing, and we would have left within a few minutes anyway, we didn't really care, and told him we'd be gone in a bit. But I can see how someone who buys the late check-out option for a reason, and needs to stay a bit longer, would feel annoyed, or even insulted, by a guy forcing them out of their room.

That's pretty much it. Not a huge deal - to me, these were all just minor glitches. But if you think you'd be annoyed by these things, beware.

Other than that, the room was good, the staff were friendly, and it was all around a good experience.

Stayed here one night 31st July warm welcome on reception and were given lots of information and asked if we needed anything just ask. First room had an issue but this was resolved quickly and we were moved this was handled very well and professionally. The room was quite big, clean and comfortable room wasn't that hot considering it being hot that day.

Nice to stay here as it's in a work district so at night is very quite which is great for a good nights sleep.

This hotel is excellent for a base in the city BUT at weekend there are no facilities to eat close by mespecially on the Sunday.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful especially a young lady named Vanessa who helped us to transfer to a larger room.The only drawback is the lack of air conditioning and the extractor fans not working in the bathrooms-we had the warmest weekend so far.
We were ten minutes walk from St.Pauls Cathedral where we attended the wedding of Bren's godson.
Buses travel close by and there are two underground stations within two minutes walk which we used to go back to Euston as the taxi fare was just short of £30.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
