“My room was level with the train tracks!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

I'm giving this hotel 'average' rather than 'poor' because the soundproofing did keep out some of the noise of trains passing - including late night services (or freight). However, there should be a warning that some rooms may be level with train tracks about 20 yards away.

I endured the noise for three nights running as they couldn't offer me a room on the other side of the hotel. The staff were very professional though.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the train tracks - or stay somewhere else.

Had a 2 night stay and the first room was like a small box. Asked to move and this was no problem. Payed in advance for breakfast and after the first morning wished we hadn't. As it was buffet people were just taking as much as they possibly could and wasting it. I felt sorry for the staff as one particular family were spitting food out onto the floor if they didn't like it. The hotel itself had benefitted from a recent refurb so was pleasantly slick and span.

I stayed last week for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. It was the perfect base to explore london from. Southwark. We had a 3 bed room - 1 double and 1 single. Large spacious room with bath shower and air conditioning. A 2 minute walk from the tube station. Convenient place to eat next door - carlos kitchen, Italian. Tesco express very near and a 24 hour shop next door. Staff helpful and friendly, able to leave bags there free of charge on booking out day, ready to collect later that day. Right next to train line - could be heard but did not disturb sleep

Room Tip: No swimming pool or fitness centre.

We stayed here for a couple of nights during a visit to London to do some sightseeing. It's located close to the Southwark tube station, which has the jubilee line so was ideal for going to sites such as the Eye, Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Also, only one stop away from Waterloo. It was a nice sized room, very clean and the bed was comfortable! We also had a view of the shard from our room. The staff were also welcoming. Perfect for anyone wanting to check out the sites!

Clean, cheap and central! Very near the tube station and plenty of shops and places to eat nearby. One of the better travelodges. Staff were friendly and the area very quiet at night. Not far for a stroll to waterloo!
