More about Comfort Inn Vauxhall

nice, clean and quiet

by A TripAdvisor Member

My husband and I were in London right before Christmas 2005 and we stayed at the Comfort Inn Vauxhall for 3 nights.

The hotel and the rooms are clean and quiet. That's all we needed for sleeping over!

Great location, great value.

by TripAdvisor Member analoguecat

We got a great deal on this hotel direct from their website. I stay in London every other week for business and so this has been a very pleasant find. A quiet yet convinent location south of the river, good big clean beds, good power shower, internet access from 50p -ideal for checking your emails quickly, safe car park and bar open til 1.30am. After a hard days's work or sight seeing it's an affordable haven.

Nice Hotel, Not a Great Location.

by TripAdvisor Member mjgalway

This hotel is ok you know. Its clean, its quite reasonable in price and it has comfortable rooms. I stayed here because I got a good deal on it for a group. The room I stayed was supposed to be for 4 but had enough beds to easily accomodate 6 people and it was still quite big.

It is about 7 - 10 mins walk from Vauxhall Station and the roads are indeed a bit confusing and I did get a bit lost once when walking back to the hotel. The buses in the area are quite good though. The bus stops just down the street from the hotel and if I can remember correctly, the No. 88 gets you to Westminster, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Street in a couple of minutes. the No. 2 also stops outside and gets you to Victoria, Hyde Park, Marble Arch and Baker Street. These are the ones on South Lambeth road, if you go to Vauxhall Bus Station, there are lots of bus routes passing through there as well.

The staff here were fairly helpful, not rude or anything. There was no remote for the tv in my room and they instantly got me one.

The area is not the best, there aren't many restaurants nearby.

The breakfast is one thing I would not recommend, it cost about £ 6 each and was just a cereal, juice, tea, nothing hot. Overpriced.

I would probably stay here again but it is possible to get more convenient hotels for a similar price.

Basic but clean

by TripAdvisor Member LEVERS

Fairly cheap and basic (more like a college hall of residence than a hotel) but clean with comfortable beds, decent continental breakfast included and tea/coffee making facilities, shower, towels, soap, tv. Bad points are that the room we stayed in stank of stale smoke and we weren't given a choice of a non-smoking room. The location is not great- next to a busy noisy main road. The heating system was good, but noisy. The double room had only one teacup so we had to share it and the staff weren't that welcoming. Overall, ok for 1 night if you are on a budget.

Would never return

by A TripAdvisor Member

I stayed at this hotel with my two friends, we booked a triple room. what we got was a twin room with a fold up bed squashed into the room, it wasnt the safest of beds and i was afraid to move as springs in certain parts of the bed were very week. The heating in the room was also very loud. When we booked into the room we were not told what time breakfast finished at and as a result we missed it. This hotel is not near the city and i would definitely not recommend it.

will stay at Hotel 87 again

by A TripAdvisor Member

Good value for the money. Attracts family for the weekend stay. It was about 10 minutes walk from the tube, and would require a transfer at the Green Park station if going into Central London. Do look for the Comfort Inn sign or else it would be easily missed. The continental breakfast is more than adequate. Room size is relatively big compare to most of the hotel room in central London. Room is clean and bed is comfortable. Stay away from the roller bed for the third person in the room. Ask for a doulbe and a single if you have 3 adults. Service was inconsistent from good to indifferent depending who was minding the check-in desk.

A lower than average standard of hotel

by TripAdvisor Member riverboy115

I only spent 1 night at this hotel but to be honest that was enough and i won't be returning.

Hotel reception staff were surley in their approach and tone and left you feeling that you were more of an inconvenience to them rather than a valued guest.

Whilst i acknowledge that i got a room at a discounted rate this is no excuse to be given a substandard room.

There were no tea / coffee facilities in the room, (given that this is supposedly a 3 star hotel i found this strange, I have stayed in Bed and Breakfast accomodation on many occasions and a tea tray is always provided)

The room its self was basically furnished with no real wardrobe as such, light bulbs were missing from fittings, the room itself (Room 107) was unbearably hot and the only way you could realistically sleep was to have the mobile air conditioning unit on full power which obviously made for a noisy nights sleep.

As for the view...well i had the pleasure of overlooking the laundry and refuse area!

All together a disapointing hotel that does not live up to its glossy broucher image nor its image as featured on many internet hotel booking sites.

This hotel really in the opinion of this writer is only becoming of a 1 star hotel whoever rated it 3 stars certainly didnt have the same room or meet the same unfriendly staff like myself and my partner did.

Would we go back to Hotel 87? Only if they paid me to stay because i certainly would not pay out to stay there again.

better than expected

by TripAdvisor Member princess235

stayed at this hotel for one night as was going to a gig at the brixton academy. Staff were a bit rude but for one night was bearable! After reading some of the reviews on this site I was slightly worried , however was pleasently suprised. Rooms were nice , modern and everything you needed for a short stay. breakfast was a little unappetising but we were in a rush so didnt try much! location was not so bad , great for the academy just a short bus ride door to door. From Paddington only one tube change. Short walk from vauxhall tube station. If like us you were just looking for a hotel close enough by public transport to all major amenities and great for the academy this hotel will meet your needs. Not luxury but for a base - Great

Budget sightseeing!

by TripAdvisor Member BramSheffield_UK_

Had 2 nights sightseeing in our Capital with my patner and 2 kids.
Family room was basically a decent sized twin room with 2 camp beds put in!
very basic, but 10mins walk from Vauxhall tube station, our room was clean and the continental breakfast was adequate, but nothing fancy.
We found it ok for a budget weekend, but don't expect too much!

Plus point - Fantastic little Italian resturant that you pass from the tube station just before the hotel, the Children were welcome and the food was wonderful, recommended.

London

"London Trip February 2003"

We tend to pop for a weekend break in London once or twice a year. In February 2002 half term we decided to take a couple of days break to celebrate our daughter's 12th birthday by seeing a show. We were able to get a great deal on Virgin Trains...4 of us, return with a family railcard, for about £60 (which is cheaper than taking the car, and so much easier on the stress levels). We left Prestatyn at 06:50 and were pulling up in Euston at 10am, which is great. We had booked a family room in the Comfort Inn, Vauxhall, which was just a short tube ride away, so we purchased a family day pass, saving us quite a lot on the individual fares. Once we had off loaded our bags at the hotel, we headed off to Leicester Square where we managed to get last minute tickets to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang that evening! We spent the afternoon in the Science Museum, before returning to the hotel to change, before dinner and the show (which was awesome!)
The second day we spent at the Imperial War Museum, followed by dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe (a family favourite!), and we rounded off the trip with a wander round some of the landmarks on the Sunday morning, taking in Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace etc., before returning to Euston for the train home.

"London Trip May 2003"

This time we were en route to a family wedding, minus the kids, so we decided to spend a day and night in London, in order to visit the Titanic Artefacts exhibition at the Science Museum. Used the train again, and this time stayed in Kensington, in the Kensington Close Hotel after getting a room for £49 through an online discount booking agent. We once again managed to get show tickets, this time for Les Miserables at the Palace Theatre, and although the whole day was one enormous rush, it was very enjoyable.

Sorry but its not a nice area, it is very congested with traffic and Vauxhall is little more than a large interchange for road and rail. Moreover, it not the safest area. Its a bad choice, I'm afraid.

Comfort Inn are a chain. Their okay, nothing flash. If you don't care for breakfast i always find the best and the cheapest are Travel Inn. Their just cleaner than comfort inn, and their nothing basic, but, for a budget hotel the rooms are generally better than you get in the Hilton hotel's ( i know, i used to refurbish them) otherwise, have a look at one of the corus and regus chain of hotel's. Their normally pretty good, thistle are a bit hit and miss however.

RE: -=Another hotel question=-

by RinkyD

The closest attraction to that hotel is the MI5 building or the Vauxhall Bus Station! Haha..

Its about 5 minutes walk from the tube station (Vauxhall) so its quite central. There is a Sainsbury's (supermarket) nearby to pickup groceries if you're on a budget, but it closes at 10pm Mon-Sat.

Also forgot to mention that the area is quite safe, just don't go down the dark alleyways or parts where you see alot of teenagers loitering.
