We've just stopped here for one night for a 2 day break in London. We are a family of 5 so I always find accommodation difficult to find if we want to just have one room. Hotel Balkan was found on booking.com at a reasonable price including continental breakfast. We arrived late which wasn't an issue and had to check...

nice hotel which offers everything you need on a short trip to London. Sainsbury's and Indian restaurant right opposite the street. just a few minutes walk to get to the next tube station. we would definitely recommend this property and book again. only the change of the hotel's name was a bit irritating :-D

Well where to start. Staff in the reception (which turned out to be in the building across from where we were staying) seemed very helpful and polite. Directed across the road to the building in which we were staying we were a family of six and given a family room on the ground floor but our single room to accommodate...

Generally the room looked very good. Clean place. The personal was nice. The only problem was that it was very cold! Central heating was not opened all night. You will have tea and water heater in the room, like in any other hotel in London.

Stayed here for Nashville concert. First off there is no free parking close by . We parked in the shopping centre at shepherds bush which was £8 for all weekend as opposed to £40+ to park close to hotel and is just 5 mins walk away. The hotel is currently being modernised and is looking like a bomb has hit...

Good hotel, worth the price I paid. The room was recently refurbished, so it was lovely, even though they still use keys to open the room doors. The only issue I had was because it had been recently refurbished, they are still doing renovations, which I was not informed of. Being on the third floor, I could hear every single...

I stayed here with my daughter for 1 night, as we needed to be near to Olympia. It was a 15 walk, so great location. The room (no. 9) was an ok size, containing 2 double beds. The bathroom was nicely decorated and had a double shower. Plenty of electric sockets too, especially outside the bathroom, so you could use...
