If you don't need to be near Waterloo station....
...I'd choose otherwise. Wasn't very impressed with this hotel at all to be honest. Stayed here during Royal Ascot week for easy access to Waterloo Station which was handy however for 2 nights it cost me £219.00 and there was no air conditioning, the room was poky and the room service food was terrible. The staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful and there is a separate ironing room which is a great idea. All in all though if you don't need to be near Waterloo I'd choose somewhere else. You can pay these prices more centrally and get a much bigger and better room with aircon.
Clean, but nothing special.
The bright side: the rooms and towels were clean, and the hotel offers very easy access to the Tube. The down side: nonchalant staff and pretty overpriced. Let me clarify, though: by overpriced, I mean it in the universal sense. For London, I must admit the hotel is only slightly overpriced.
The worst hotel we have stayed in, either in the UK or other countries. The room was far too small for two people. There was just 15cm of hanging space for clothes. The lifts broke down, there is no central heating and the traffic noise made sleep impossible - sirens 24 hours a day. The bed was uncomfortable. The maid took away one set of towels and didn't replace them and the shower was dirty on arrival. On the plus side, the location is good for tourist spots.
great location one minute from lambeth north underground station, you can be at most major attractions quickly and easily. the room was very clean and we got clean sheets and towels daily. best bit was probably breakfast which was served til 11 at weekend and 10 during the week, lots of choice from fruit and cereal, yoghurts, pastries and a full english. all in all very good value for money would definitely stay again.
We stayed in the Days Inn for one night in February as we were catching the early Eurostar train to Brussels on the Saturday morning. We did not really know what to expect having read some of the earlier reports on Trip Advisor. However we were pleasantly surprised. The staff on the desk were polite, helpful and very quick at booking us in. The room was fine. We did not need to unpack our case for one night so had no problem with wardrobe space etc and did not think the room was too small. Have been in smaller rooms!!!! The room was very clean as was the bathroom.
We had booked in for bed and breakfast, at a very good rate, and because we would be leaving very early on Saturday the hotel said they would do us a packed breakfast which consisted of two croissants, jam and butter, two apples, two oranges, two cakes and two cartons of apple juice (2 people) which we really appreciated.
All in all for the amount of money we paid for the room the service was very, very good.
Also we left our car at the hotel (£10 per night) and picked it up on Monday night on our return. Again the staff were courteous and helpful.
Would recommend this hotel for a short stay especially if getting early train from Waterloo and we walked to the station and back on our return which was not far at all.
I spent six nights at the Waterloo Days Inn and my experience was very positive. I found the staff to be friendly and accommodating, and the hotel to be clean (even a computer in the lobby with free internet). I had read the reviews that said there was a lot of road noise, and sirens from the adjacent police station. I requested a room away from the police station and invested in a cheap pair of earplugs and I slept like a baby. The rooms are very small by American standards, but I found mine to be functional. The bathroom was modern and the shower was just large enough and provided lots of hot water. I had a hot breakfast every morning (bacon, sausage and eggs). There were plenty of rolls, croissants, cereal, fresh fruit, cheese and yogurt to accommodate your tastes. The nearest tube station is Lambreth North (approximately 150m from hotel) on the Bakerloo Line which is about a 10 minute ride to central London. By the way I would definitely suggest getting an Oyster card rather than a multi or single-day pass. You should be able to get one of these at any of the tube stations, and basically it's a prepaid card that can be used for the tube, buses and/or trains. You will never be charged more than a single day pass per day, and any remaining money you have on the card can be refunded at the Heathrow Airport tube office. Also, as my friend found out on a previous trip they will not refund you for a lost multi-day pass. With the Oyster you can at least get a new card. There are a couple of small convenience stores located near the Days Inn and a nice Thai restaurant just east of the tube station. I would also recommend the London Pass (1,2,3 or 7 days). London is super expensive for American's right now, but this is a great way to check out all the cool touristy things and not have to pay all those expensive entrance fees, although all of the Museum's are free! I got mine through ---.com and they also have an area for coach and train trips. I went on a coach tour to Windsor, Stonhenge and Bath and it was a LOT of fun. They send you a booklet with great recommendations for reasonably priced restaurants, which was a must for someone on a budget. Speaking of Museum's the British War Museum is just across the street, and they have a fantastic WWI trench simulation and a Holocaust section that is very powerful. If you want to stay in a place that is in a quiet section of London, and offers a decent home base, I would recommend the Waterloo Days Inn.
I stayed in this hotel last year and forgot to write a review, I was so surprised at how nice it was for the money.Rooms though not very large were spotless and comfortable. food was nice and the location is great! dont hesitate to go if u are unsure,for a budget hotel its just perfect and right beside the police station so its a really safe area, just two min walk to tube and lots of convenient shops nearby.
