We only stay one night in London, but it was a great place. We arrived before check in, the staff let us leave our luggage there so we could go sightseeing. The room was great, it had a small refrigertor in the room and there was coffee, tea, hot chocolate and biscuit. They had breakfast for a fee. It is...

I stayed here for one night at the end of September. On arrival, we were greeted by friendly staff who showed us to a very spacious double room with a large ensuit bathroom. (Great value for money) The location couldn't have been better for us! Super close to the station, and great bars and restaurants close by. I will definitely...

A great place to stay! Other reviews have complained about noise - we heard none to disturb us. Clean: clean room, big enough, good housekeeping. Convenient: 250 yards from the tube, passing M&S food on the way; 20 minutes on the tube to central London. 300 yards from Clapham Common. Loads of shops and cafes nearby. Comfy: nice bed, freeview/...

Upon calling the hotel I was greeted by a very friendly lady named Denah. I was traveling with my husband and we were bringing my Mom and sister with us from the states. She was extremely helpful with the directions on how to get to the hotel. It turns out it's a straight shot on the Northern tube line from...

We've used this hotel twice now for SW4. It's pretty basic but clean and friendly. It's main selling point is that it's cheap and right next to Clapham South. I will definitely be staying here again for SW4 next year. Thanks.

We stayed last night after attending SW4 Festival on Clapham Common. This hotel was perfect! Inexpensive, ideal location with tube station right on the doorstep, really clean and a great welcome. Highly recommended and will most certainly book again for next year.

After a lot of searching for a hotel in London I came across this. It was the nicest looking one in my price bracket, so I booked it, very local to a tube station, upon arrival was greeted by a very friendly Brazilian man, who was just so welcoming and friendly and made us feel completely relaxed at home, he...

My friend and I stayed here for about a week and a half while on holiday. The room we booked was small but nice and clean. We had a window facing the street so at night the traffic was noisy. The staff were very friendly and helpful as necessary. The location is very close to an underground station so going...

This small, friendly hotel was a brilliant find. We were attending a wedding in Central London, so South Clapham tube being 5 minutes away was a bonus, as is the car parking, which is reasonable at a fiver a night. The staff are young and helpful, the ensuite rooms are clean, comfortable and big enough for us. earplugs were provided,...

Hot day so we had to have window open onto noisy street with pub beer garden close by. However, we didn't have any problems sleeping. Very clean and very friendly staff. Excellent location - close to tube, shops and restaurants.
