I was a little aprehensive about my stay at Hotel Balkan. I needed something cheap and close to my university and it ticked those boxes, but the reviews I had read were not very good and the pictures didn't look nice. Luckily - the hotel looked nothing like the pictures! It has recently been refurbished and they clearly haven't updated... More

I booked a double room through booking.com. However, without me realising the invoice showed a single room had been booked. I wasn't sure at which point in the booking process this had changed as I never book a single room even when I'm travelling on my own! I emailed the hotel when I realised and got no response. I then... More

The hotel is still undergoing refurbishment and redecoration, and so we had to check in at the neighbouring Euro Hotel. A few grumbles: our room was on the ground floor, and the corridor reeked of fresh paint. The door to our room had to be forced open and shut. the room was pokey and had nowhere to put luggage or...

this is an ideal location to stay near to the underground and motorways. The hotel is currently being refurbished but our room was basic and clean. the bathroom was brand new. Breakfast was the usual variety of cereals, yoghurts, croissants and a cooked breakfast. All in all good value for money.

Booked to stay one night as I was attending a conference at Olympia - walking distance so positives in terms of location but the hotel was in the process of being modernised and when I checked in it was almost like a building site! Positives: location, clean room which was obviously in the process of being updated and modernised Negatives:... More

The Fire Alarm starts ringing in the middle of the night, the hotel was in construction and the noise begins at 08:00AM and when you ask the constructors to stop they pretend they don't understand you. And the staff are arrogant, rude and useless, with complete desrespect for their customers, particularly with women! Worst hotel i've ever been to.
