This Travel Inn is arguably the best, cheapest, most well positioned accommodation in London you will find.
If you want London on a budget in an excellent location then choose this one. And if you are not entirely satisfied with your stay they will refund your money!! - can't say fairer than that.

We had a good time but ...from A TripAdvisor Member
You won't find lots of pubs but it's safe and fairly quiet.
I stayed here with my parents and brother in late October. The rooms were fine: clean and in good repair. We had to ask for that extra sheet but had no problems with the hotel staff. They were friendly and generally helpful. Yes, the bars of soap were tiny but I always bring my own. They don't provide wash clothes. We bought some at Boots.
Check-in early. The lines only grow longer as the afternoon wears on.
A few things to note:
-- The restaurant at the hotel is ok, but there are better places to eat. They no longer do a continental breakfast, just the full English breakfast for 6.5 pounds ... about $10 US. We had coffee and a pastry most mornings at the Starbucks across the street. We ate one evening meal here. It was OK but we didn't come back.
-- There aren't many other amenities here. But, so what? You're here to see London, not the hotel. Don't expect ice and soda machines like you find in the states. The rooms are bigger than many in London but they aren't huge. If you're on the courtyard, be prepared for some noise as workers bang garbage cans and dump glass early in the morning. It didn't bother us but it might bother others. Bring ear plugs if you're sensitive to noise.
-- We had booked a twin room for two. The "twin" was a double bed and a couch that converted to a twin-size bed at night. Not exactly what we expected but it worked. If you want two double beds or a king, go to the Marriott next door (and be prepared for a really BIG bill!).
-- There's a great mini-mart across the street (everything from hard liquor to juice, fruit, ice cream ... they get alot into a small space; very friendly). Also a bagel deli and a restaurant with a Mideastern slant to the menu (didn't eat at either). We did eat at Ned's Noodle Box (chow mein, ramen, won ton soup, etc.). It was great, inexpensive and they have a liquor license. Down the street is a branch of Yo Sushi (didn't eat there but looks good) and, soon to open, an Italian restaurant with an eat-in or take-away menu that looked promising.
There's also Studio C on the corner by Westminster Bridge (indifferent food and drinks), a McDonald's and a cafe at the London Eye. The Chinese restaurant on the Thames side of the building is expensive and portions are small. It has a great setting with magnificent view but you pay for it.
-- There are more restaurants on York Road, including an outpost of All Bar One that had a promising menu but was crowded and smokey at night.
We had drinks there one afternoon but didn't return to eat (fussy Americans ... can't stand a little smoke). There are also places on the other side of Waterloo Station (including the Old Vic Theatre) but we didn't get there.
-- Don't miss the London Eye. Yes, it's pricey (11 pounds ... about $17) but the view is great. Go early on a weekday morning and it won't be too crowded.
-- Tube connections aren't too bad: Waterloo is just a few blocks away; Westminster station is just across the Thames.
London is a great city. Enjoy!
No better value for the same pricrfrom dascreenname

If you want to sleep past seven a.m., be sure that you have ear plugs as the courtyard is loud as is the street side. The windows only open literally 2-3 inches so if it is musty or hot in your room (both in our case) you should plan on staying out late and waking early (which this hotel can assist with).
The cherry on top for us was the dishonesty of the employees. We were unable to meet with a friend who lived in London and had a gift of two bottles of wine from a local vineyard for him and his wife. We left it at the front desk when we checked out and the desk clerk wrote a large note and left the gift in the manager's office. Several hours later when our friend stopped at the hotel to pick up our gift to him, he was informed that there was no such gift left for anyone. I hope the Travel Inn employee(s) enjoyed our gift. I was apalled to find this out. My wife called and spoke to the manager and was told that we needed to have a claim check for any such thing. We explained that we were not told of that policyand that we knew the name of the employee we gave the gift to. He didn't seem to care. I believe we found the culprit.
Other than that, our stay was fantastic. London is a wonderful city and our trip outside of the hotel was nothing like our experience in the hotel.
Top Local Tips for London
Nearby to the Travel Inn Near to the Travel Inn (as you walk out of the exit, walk down the road to the right towards Westminster bridge) is Ned's Noodle Bar on the left hand side of the road. This has deals before 5pm weekdays (and Sats I think) and 3-5 on Sunday for freshly made noodles with your choice of meat and sauce along with spring rolls and a drink for under £5! Bargain - and great food too!
No deposit reqiuired You dont pay in full until you arrive and can cancel up to near your date of travel
Going Underground! Use the tube!!!!! Its quick, cheap and safe. Cars are a no no due to the dreaded congestion charge!!!!
