If you suffer from vertigo then avoid this hotel as it's based on floors 7 to 9 of a tower block. Our room was on the 9th floor and was at the rear of the building.
The room had secondary glazing and was very good at keeping all the noise out as 'blues and two's' could be heard very loudly when open. The bed was a new style where they can now get a vacuum cleaner under the bed and a 10 inch king size mattress that was much firmer (a rating of 3 to 4 on the firmness scale) than other Travelodge's that we have stayed in. There were also 4 very well stuffed pillows rather than the 3 thin one's you normally get. This is a great step forward and let's hope Travelodge role these new beds out very quickly. For the size of the room the bathroom was very small; barely enough room to turn around.There was a shower only, which for myself is a big plus.
Security is taken seriously as getting to your room you need to use the key card in the lift to access floors 7 to 9 and then through the door to the bedrooms. Our only gripe was that our key cards needed to be reset everyday of our 3 day trip. Really don't understand why.
We arrived by public transport. It really is the only way to travel around London. The bus stops, to Croydon (20 minutes) and up to London (50 minutes to Trafalgar Square), are within 50 metres and run at very frequent intervals. There is also a Night Bus (N3) and route 197 run from the West End to the hotel throughout the night.
