Adequate but a bit soulless.

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 6, 2011

For those of you not familiar with the Travelodge chain they provide a fairly no frills service at a reasonable price, and they generally do it pretty well.

I remember many years ago, my late Mother stayed here and I do recall a very pleasant public area with a pleasant bar where I waited for her to get ready to go out. I think the pictures speak for themselves here. This is now part of a chain, and you could equally be sitting in Liverpool, Cambridge or anywhere else, it is all a bit sterile. From the number of laptops in evidence in the foyer as I checked out, it appears to be much patronised by the business community, although it is in a prime position for "theatreland" should that be the reason for your visit. Perhaps the reason for all the laptops was that, somewhat oddly, wifi internet is free in the foyer but charged in the rooms.

I may sound a bit negative but there really was nothing wrong with the place. The accomodation was spotless with all the usual trappings, tea and coffee making facilities, flatscreen TV etc. The only problem with the room was that the basement location meant there was absolutely no view whatsoever with frosted mullioned windows. Note also that Travelodge do not provide complimentary toiletries, so bring your own.

I didn't eat in the restaurant but the menu in the room indicated that it was quite good value for a central London hotel.

Unique Quality: Nothing unique, just a functional hotel in a good location.

Unpleasant Hotel in Hard to Find Location

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 29, 2005

The hotel is located in what appears to be a former office block, however it is not easy to spot so best ask directions from someone who knows the area.

The rooms are smelly, dark and not pleasant. The bathrooms are old, smelly again, and supplied with a single old, threadbare towel.

The staff are efficient but not helpful in any way. Don't even bother to ask if they can look after your luggage for an hour or so after check-out - they won't.

Unique Quality: Nothing - I would never dream of returning.

Avoid this hotel!

I stayed here for 3 nights and was checked every morning for breakfast voucher. On my last day here, my backpack was stolen at the hotel breakfast enclosure area. It all happened within a minute. A guy well dressed in suit came over to my table & took my bag away. This is all too unbelievable in a secured area within the hotel. The staff at the breakfast entrance failed to check the thief for breakfast voucher and just let him walk in and took my bag away. The thief was not a hotel guest and neither does him hold a hotel breakfast voucher. I lose my valuable and unused British rail passes.

The hotel had this guy’s photo-fit photograph on the security wall, but all the staff failed to recognize him. The whole incident was recorded by the hotel CCTV. According to the hotel staff this thief had been moving around Travelodge hotels, stealing their hotel guests valuable for the past 3 days and he is still out there. There was clearly negligent from the hotel, but the hotel management claims that anybody can walk into the hotel freely. Then I wander why the staff been checking me for breakfast voucher every morning without fail but not the thief?
I am sure for £73 a night; you can stay somewhere else that is safer and give you better room amenities. Don’t bother to buy the breakfast voucher as according to the Hotel Management everybody can walk in and take free breakfast. I was really traumatized by this incident, but sadly I was even asked to pay £1 for the use of internet in order to retrieve the rest of my holiday bookings.
