Good (Price) for the City May 04, 2017
I have stayed here a couple of times and you can sometimes get rooms for either £6 (January sales) or £60 and even less if you book in advance or take advantage of their occasional sales. I would recommend signing up to their newsletter if you have a lot of time before you are planning to stay in

London. Some locations are cheaper than this one.

The hotel itself is right on City Road, a major road in London – night and day. Some of the rooms facing the noisy main road are larger. I have always asked for a quiet room on the back of the hotel, which is absolutely silent. With no air conditioning and windows that only open slightly, you will have your windows open except in mid-Winter. If you do keep the shades drawn in the day the rooms are ok temperature wise. They have decent heating in winter.

The staff are nice enough and you do have a good buffet breakfast, evening meals and a 24-hour bar. The rooms are good sized for London and you can swing a cat in it (please not literally!). The beds are ok, but reasonable. You also do get a desk, chair, small TV and some closet space. If you are here to work for 1­2 nights, it is a good option, especially on an advanced deal.

The location has an amazing array of places to eat, drink and even do banking nearby – especially at lunch time. You can have any cuisine in the world within a 5­7 minute walk. There are also several of the main grocery store chains nearby and even an up­scale Waitrose supermarket. It is 1­2 miles from every major central London tourist attraction.

Travelodges are basic, clean hotels that are economical when booked early or during their many sales. It is over­priced if you are booking last minute and you can get into 5 star hotels cheaper using last minute type websites in London.

If you do book in advance, make sure you ask for a room on the back side of the building and reconfirm or check in early on your arrival day!

Please note: This location is known as ‘London Central City Road’. Previously it was known as the

‘London Moorgate’ location.

DAO’s Verdict:

- Rooms are either facing a noisy main road or a quiet alley

- Excellent location for transport, food and drink

- Wi-Fi charges start at £5 per hour. There is free Wi­Fi in nearby cafés and pubs

- No air conditioning, No toiletries except small bar of soap, No left luggage facility

- No car parking and nearby is £36 per 24 Hours! The hotel is within the Congestion Charge Zone

- Must have photo ID or you will lose the room and your money!
