First time visiting Travelodge, wasn't sure what to expect because as it's right next to the Balham train station, thought it was going to be very noisy and run down. But to my surprise, it was pleasant and the receptionist was very nice and delivered good service, the room was clean, had a nice shower and a nice big bed,...

The manager was very helpful generally and especially, printing out documents for me. the bed was comfortable, convenient to catch tube though location is nearly an hour from central London; the desk was a bit basic and cramped

Booked Balham travelodge as visiting daughter for weekend. I was a bit apprehensive at first but need not have worried. Staff were very welcoming and friendly, room was great clean and quiet. Could not fault plus is not far to travel on the tube/buses into central London. Well worth a visit!!!!

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It was much quieter than I had expected. Very convenient for both tube and trains, but no noise from either in the room we were in. Clean, comfortable and good value for money, the usual consistent Travelodge quality.

Always a pleasure to stay at this hotel. We have come here so often, the manager recognises us from previous visits! Rooms are clean and tidy, bathroom is spotless and the bed is comfortable. Balham is a great location, offering a wide range of shops and restaurants. The hotel is right around the corner from Balham tube and rail station,...

We booked a one night stay at a special weekend rate through Late.Rooms.com which made it very reasonable for London. However, given how basic this place is (with very limited parking facilities and no proper breakfast facilities), we would not recommend at the full daily hotel rate. We cannot comment on service in the hotel, as we only encountered one...

Prime location, just a few yards from the underground station making it perfect for those wanting to travel into the tourist destinations in the city centre. Everything you need from a hotel at the best price, travelodge always offers a no frills service that is perfect for me, as a student, to be able to afford to visit new locations...

Me and my partner felt comfortable and welcome throughout the whole stay, staff left you to it but were more than happy to help whenever you needed it. The room was warm cosy and spacious with comfortable bed and great sized tv, the shower was sooo lovely too!

This was our first experience with a Travelodge, and yes, if you’re looking for any frills at all you simply won’t find them – there can’t be a more bare-bones hotel chain around. However that said, it was very reasonably priced, spotlessly clean both in the public areas and (more importantly) the bedroom, and with fast check-in and check-out handled...
