    Great location, less than a minutes walk to train (underground & overground). Room had everything that was needed, including kettle and tea/coffee. Some train noise but nothing unbearable - and worth it for the convenience. Shower pressure not great. Bed comfortable.

    We were pleasantly surprised by the quietness of the room despite the hotel being in a busy part of London and next to a railway line. We almost didn't hear the trains - they were certainly not loud enough to waken us. The room was...More

    There is a parking place in Balham not far from the traveloge. You should be able to google parking in Balham or contact the traveloge . Hope that helps.
