“balham TL”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

Be prepared to wait to check in as the reception staff are just not around. The call system is inefficient. Further, there is a rather "take it or leave it" attitude as regards the "check-in" process.
You will most likely have to have the cardkey reinitialised as the front desk seem to not consider that your stay is longer than one night - hopefully there will be someone on reception when your cardkey does not work!

Recently stayed albeit for one night, pleasant staff and a comfortable clean room. Located less than 50 meters from the Tube was very convenient for getting around. Good local shops nearby. Would recommend if you need a short stop over.

Hotel was comfortable, very clean and found all staff to be very friendly, best of all the tube was on the doorstep.considering being so close to the underground we did not experience unreasonable level of noise. great facilities close by.

Balham Travelodge is a new modern hotel close to rail and underground(Northern line). Rooms are basic but have everything you need. Comfortable and clean. We found staff to be v friendly. Check in 3pm . Probably only downside is that the rooms can be very warm and windows do not open.

Spotless room with very comfortable bed and two pillows. TV worked well and shower pressure was good with adequate pressure. Friendly staff were very welcoming. Although next to Balham station, noise ingress was minimal.

Great location with plenty of places to eat and drink nearby and on a direct tube line to Euston. Very clean and recently updated hotel. Quiet rooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. Only slight downside was that it was very hot in out room (but it was a warm weekend and the staff did give us a fan to use).

I was going to a gig at Brixton Academy and booked to stay here for a night as it was very good value for a room in London on a Saturday night, and also fairly close. Very easy to find coming out of the underground station, doesn't look like much from the outside but inside is one of the refurbished hotels. Our room was on the ground floor, fairly small but comfortable and clean. I was surprised to see that finally they offer four pillows on the double bed rather than two and a spare one. My friend said the bed was much more comfortable than the ones she's slept in before at other Travelodges. We didn't have any temperature issues and although we were right next to the train tracks the noise didn't really bother us either. We had no trouble finding places to eat in Balham on both days we were there.

There's one thing I wish Travelodge would do, and that is put plug sockets next to the beds! It would make life so much easier being able to charge a phone there as opposed to halfway across the room and not worry about whether you're going to hear the alarm going off in the morning or not.
