Travelodge London Waterloo Hotel
Ranked #438 of 1,077 Hotels in London
Reviewed 4 January 2014

We had a short break at this hotel to do some sightseeing in London.
Got here at 6AM and the great staff maaged to secure us a room at this time for a small administrative fee.
The location of this hotel is a big selling point as it is located a 5 min walk from London Waterloo Station
Whilst the room is basic, the bed was super comfy and the service of the staff made this a bargain stay.

This hotel is very good. We were really happy staying in this central location with lots of local amenities and in fact having the London eye and Thames just around the corner. As the hotel is on the South bank, I found that there was slightly less people and there was not any 'bad crowds'! I would definitely recommend this hotel! It was great coming back to the hotel, after a busy day, to a clean room! You have everything either in the room or available from reception for a cost, letting you know that you really are at home!! I found the bar and reception area very spcious and welcoming to all and will hopefully return

Over the years I have stayed in many different hotels in London and my price range has varied from very cheap to luxury stays. One thing that I had learned is that in London you always get less than what you pay for. Until I stayed here.
Shortly before New Year's, my boyfriend and I decided to celebrate it in London with another couple. As it was last minute, we did not have many alternatives, so we decided to "settle" for this particular Travelodge. The main reason for choosing it was the location. For me this is hands down the best location in London - it is an excellent base for exploring the city, but Waterloo is a hip and happening place in itself.
My expectations about the rooms were very low, I have to admit. Having been to other cheap hotels in London, I was a little concerned. However all my fears disappeared the moment we walked in the lobby. It was light, spacious and very clean.
There was a mix up with our reservation but it was resolved within 10 minutes. I'd advise you to print out your reservation to avoid the same problem. We had payed for early check in (which is 12) but we got there at 10 am, luckily, they were able to give us our rooms immediately, which is great!
Our friends got a room on the 1st floor - 133, which was at the bottom of a very long corridor and rather small. We got lucky, because we got a corner room - 407, which was almost twice as big. Do ask for it, if you get the chance. The furniture is basic but new and comfortable. You get everything you need! The bed is really comfy, I've had better sleep here than in many other much more expensive hotels. There is a good choice of tv channels. The bathroom is tiny, but it is clean and most importantly - mould free. The carpet could use a slightly better cleaning.
Another surprising aspect of this hotel was the food. The food is actually pretty great. We did try many different things and everything was of great quality. Service could be faster, but it was a very busy period after all, so I can't really blame them for that.
All in all, this is great little hotel. You get an amazing value for money, unbelievable for London. We will return. Soon!

Room Tip: get 407! Its the biggest

We had a family short break between Christmas and new year and were so pleased with this hotel that we came back for another night later in the week! We had good sized rooms which were clean and comfortable with decent bathrooms. The breakfast is okay, not great, but convenient to set you up for a long day of walking around London. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Incredibly good value for the centre of London, an easy walk up to Westminster and the south bank. It also has buses stopping just outside and the underground just up the road. Only downside, make the single beds wider please!

Room Tip: They will book you a double room by default, so be sure to ask for twin or family when booking,

I took my parents to this travelodge and paid £58 for a family room (bargin) which was very spacious and really clean throughout the hotel and the beds were so comfortable as always! We even had a great view of the London Eye from our window!! Staff were lovely and helpful at check in desk including one woman (I didn't get her name) but she took care of us when our room wasn't quite ready. Just a short walk from Waterloo station with a 24 hour sainsburys which is great when coming back from a west end show late at night. Would definitely stay here again!

Stayed for one night while going to theatre! Decent location , had a little trouble checking in as room not quite ready but staff very helpful and arranged us a hot drink in bar area while we waited which was only 10 mins or so - room was a family room very spacious we even had a view of the London eye between two other grey drab buildings! Clean room , fresh towels -sparse but that's what we know and expect and is fine by us for one night for the price we pay! Most importantly we had a good nights sleep as the beds were extremely comfortable and large ! There was some noise from about 6am as people were rising and banging doors etc but this is to be expected ! Didn't have breakfast in hotel so can't comment on this but Would stay here again

we booked the Travelodge because of price its a typical Travelodge nice room comfy bed good shower restaurant 24hr bar nice staff rate 100% location is fantastic 3mins walk from waterloo mainline & tube which connects you to anywhere in London. 5mins walk from the southbank & festival hall & the London eye. then a short walk across the river to covent garden, parliament, Trafalgar square, need I say more. we went to visit hyde park Christmas wonderland, oxford street lights. Perfect. the area the hotel in is safe and we felt comfortable walking around even late at night.
