We've used this hotel twice now for SW4. It's pretty basic but clean and friendly. It's main selling point is that it's cheap and right next to Clapham South. I will definitely be staying here again for SW4 next year. Thanks.

We stayed last night after attending SW4 Festival on Clapham Common. This hotel was perfect! Inexpensive, ideal location with tube station right on the doorstep, really clean and a great welcome. Highly recommended and will most certainly book again for next year.

After a lot of searching for a hotel in London I came across this. It was the nicest looking one in my price bracket, so I booked it, very local to a tube station, upon arrival was greeted by a very friendly Brazilian man, who was just so welcoming and friendly and made us feel completely relaxed at home, he...

My friend and I stayed here for about a week and a half while on holiday. The room we booked was small but nice and clean. We had a window facing the street so at night the traffic was noisy. The staff were very friendly and helpful as necessary. The location is very close to an underground station so going...

This small, friendly hotel was a brilliant find. We were attending a wedding in Central London, so South Clapham tube being 5 minutes away was a bonus, as is the car parking, which is reasonable at a fiver a night. The staff are young and helpful, the ensuite rooms are clean, comfortable and big enough for us. earplugs were provided,...

Hot day so we had to have window open onto noisy street with pub beer garden close by. However, we didn't have any problems sleeping. Very clean and very friendly staff. Excellent location - close to tube, shops and restaurants.

We were running from a close hotel and found The Gateway Hotel. The young lady at the reception, Anna, was absolutely lovely and helped us so much! Sadly, we could only stay one night, as the hotel was fully booked. We would have loved to stay longer. Our room was big, neat and tidy; clean bathroom. We were very happy!...

Superb. Very helpful and friendly staff (Alexander on main reception was amazingly welcoming). Very well presented room, clean and well equipped. We stayed as a couple with our 2 year old son whilst visiting friends in the local area. We will DEFINITELY be using The Gateway again.
