As there are so many poor reviews of the Farringdon Road Travelodge, I wasn't going to comment, but then I read Tracy H's report and wondered if she'd stayed in the same place as us? There is another refurbished Travelodge in King's Cross?
Two weeks ago we stayed at the Kew Bridge Travelodge, which was very nice indeed - very clean, lovely position, as good as many non-budget hotels.
By contrast, I can only agree with many other reviewers about Farringdon Road - our room was decidedly grubby, especially the bathroom, the public areas were run down and dirty, the exception being the bar which was OK.
Breakfast was chaotic, with things running out frequently because of the numbers they were serving, but the staff were working very hard to replace items, and also cleared tables quickly. In fact the one saving grace with this "hotel" was its staff - they were delightful, and as helpful as they could possibly be in the circumstances.
We would never stay here again, simply because of the dirty and run down nature of the place - but we were frequently told that they were due for refurbishment - until that happens, I'd avoid it!
I was horrified to discover that if we'd booked on the day, the price would have been £139, whereas we were fortunate enough to have only paid £39.
