GOOD (PRICE) FOR THE CITY

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 10, 2014


I have stayed here a couple of times and you can sometimes get rooms for either £6 (January sales) or £60 and even less if you book in advance or take advantage of their occasional sales. I would recommend signing up to their newsletter if you have a lot of time before you are planning to stay in London. Some locations are cheaper than this one. The hotel itself is right on City Road, a major road in London – night and day. Some of the rooms facing the noisy main road are larger. I have always asked for a quiet room on the back of the hotel, which is absolutely silent. With no air-conditioning and windows that only open slightly, you will have your windows open except in mid-Winter. If you do keep the shades drawn in the day the rooms are ok temperature wise. They have decent heating in winter.

The staff are nice enough and you do have a good buffet breakfast, evening meals and a 24 hour bar. The rooms are good sized for London and you can swing a cat in it (please not literally!). The beds are ok, but reasonable. You also do get a desk, chair, small TV and some closet space. If you are here to work for 1-2 nights, it is a good option, especially on an advanced deal.

The location has an amazing array of places to eat, drink and even do banking nearby – especially at lunch time. You can have any cuisine in the world within a 5-7 minute walk. There are also several of the main grocery store chains nearby and even an up-scale Waitrose supermarket. It is 1-2 miles from every major central London tourist attraction.

Travelodges are basic, clean hotels that are economical when booked early or during their many sales. It is over-priced if you are booking last minute and you can get into 5 star hotels cheaper using last minute type websites in London. If you do book in advance, make sure you ask for a room on the back side of the building and reconfirm or check in early on your arrival day!


Please note: This location is known as ‘London Central City Road’. Previously it was known as the ‘London Moorgate’ location.

Decent hotel, but poor breakfast

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 5, 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed at Travelodge from dec 28 through january 2nd. The hotel itself is decent enough, but the breakfast there is horrible. We found several hairs in the scrambled eggs and the bacon is not crispy, it's more raw. The room we had was fine. The bed is actually very comfortable and soft! Also, we got three pillows. The thingsI would change was that the shower was not cleaned good enough when we got our room and the cups and spoons were used and not washed. And we only got one little piece of soap for 5 days. No hair dryer either, but that's just details. We never had supper/dinner at the hotel. The hotel's location is good enough, and we liked the financial district. We walked to Liverpool station, about a 5 minute walk, and we took the tube from there. Also, bus 23 goes directly from the Oxford Circus to Travelodge. That's convenient to know. We were on the 7th floor, so we were not disturbed by noise when we had the window open at night. Another thing that is important to mention is the elevators. The Travelodge has three elevators, one wasout of service during our entire stay. But most of the time, there was only one elevator in use. A bit irritating... But overall, Travelodge is decent enough for a limited time. Subway across the street have great subs that you can eat for breakfast! =)

Cheap, convenient place to stay

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 27, 2011

As a budget traveler, I found Travelodge hotels in the UK to be perfect for those who just want a place to sleep during the night and go out sightseeing during the day. I was able to book at a good rate in advance at this Travelodge on City Road (through Travelodge UK's own web site - link below), which is within walking distance from the Liverpool Street Station, where you can find a host of restaurants and shops as well as buses and trains.

Our stay was pretty good. The room did not face the street and we had the windows closed, so it was pretty quiet during the night. As we expected, there was nothing fancy in the room, but the bed was quite comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to the budget traveler.

Unique Quality: The room has: A small LCD TV with a few channels, a coffee/tea maker with free instant coffee and tea, cups, soap in the bathroom.

The room does NOT have: Shampoo/conditioner, free wireless internet in the room (paid wireless available).

The lobby and bar have free wireless internet. The bar offers a breakfast buffet (not complimentary) in the morning. We also had several dinners in the bar, which we found to be surprisingly delicious. The fish pie and chicken tikka masala were excellent.

Note: Early check-in before 3pm requires an additional fee. If you only need to store your luggage, you can use the left luggage facility at the Liverpool Street Station.

Directions: Nearest tube stations: Moorgate or Liverpool Street. From Liverpool Street, walk west to Moorgate and Finsbury Pavement, then walk north. Hotel on the right.

Appers to be a recent addition to the Travelodge chain.
On City Road, close to Old Street underground station. As ever book early for the best prices. A very large clean comfortable and quiet room for us, did hear some peaple complaining of noise on front facing rooms - ask for one at the back!
Breakfast is available at extra cost.
Enjoyed our overnight stay here.
