Location Rate Friendly staff Clean & comfortable room
Noise from fridge in room (didn't realise it was fridge until morning otherwise could have turned it off)
Near Clapham South tube station, clean room, biscuits every day, friendly welcome.
TV reception was intermittent, the room was quite dark with all the lights on
Very conveniently located near the Clapham South Tube station. Cleanliness of the hotel in general and the bedding and towels in particular. Also the helpful, friendly staff who just couldn't do enough for us.
Breakfast in a box - yuk! We gave it back and went across and tried the two excellent cafes straight across the road. Excellent hot breakfast for less than £7. Beware, we did not get a full refund on the breakfast boxes because we booked through Booking.com which soured our experience of what is otherwise a very nice hotel.
BED FRIDGE VERY CLEAN STAFF
close to tube
no bar reception closes at 9pm
Near underground station
close to tube and rail lines
Street noisy with traffic. We were there in autumn so may be a problem in hot weather. Ear plugs provided without asking though.
Single room was pretty quiet, although could near guests next door at times. Staff lovely and room was comfortable. Lovely double bed for a single room. Handy location to the tube and only 15 min walk to Balham train station.
Shower pressure was non existent and there was a broken bulb in bathroom, making it very dim.
Staff were really lovely and the hotel was handy to the tube station. Lots of food places nearby like Tescos, Sainsbury's, Burger King and a lovely pub next door.
Very close to the busy road so sleep was difficult. The hotel provides earplugs but found these ineffective. Lighting in room was dim but solved when I asked for an additional lamp
location, staff very frindly and willing to help you, especially Alex
room too small
Staff were friendly and most helpful to the point where our daughter visited for one night from London and was put up free of charge. The staff tried to contact us before we arrived to check the time of arrival which I thought was very good as we arrive late in the evening. the room was very clean and tidy with excellent WiFi. The location is superb beside the tube station in Clapham South.
The travel directions from Gatwick were good but the last leg from Balham Station (national railway) could have been undertaken by tube to Clapham South. However this is not the fault of the Hotel
Location was ideal. Place was very cozy and comfortable. Staff was helpful and cooperative. Public transport is just next door. It was two minutes by bus and five minutes walk to the high street. All and any amenity required was available in the vicinity. The place looks like a small boutique cottage. Would love to stay there again.
At times the reception was unattended or close. There are no provisions for late check in. Arrangements are required by guests which are occasionally uncomfortable.
I stayed 3 nights instead of 6 because of an emergency and the receptionist was very helpful.
Have stayed here several times and will continue to do so, very quiet and private, bed very comfortable and room always has very good standard of cleanliness bathroom spacious and modern.
Fridge, close to underground, easy to enter after 22
The location can't be beat, it is a short subway ride to most attractions. The staff were wonderful, friendly and eager to help. They went out of their way to help out and also had wonderful suggestions for restaurants in the area. All in all it made for a great trip.
The rooms face a busy street (but you can't really fault the hotel for that). Although this wasn't a problem for me, noise sensitive travelers would be advised to use the earplugs kindly provided by the hotel. Also the rooms are of smaller size but again this is London and you get what you pay for. The cons definitely don't outweigh the pros in this case.
I'm so proud of myself for finding this place. It was perfect! The price was unbelievable good, location was great (right by the tube), great room amenities including a nice TV, hair drier, good wifi signal, fridge, tea/coffee and light snack replenished daily in the room, plenty of 2in1 body wash/shampoo in the shower. The staff was so friendly as well.
There was a disconnect between the hotel and booking.com on office hours to check in on Sundays. I'm glad I caught that before showing up at 8:50pm, wondering where everyone was. The staff was so nice to stay late for us to check in. So warning: they close at 6pm Sundays! There was also a smell in the bathroom that we noticed every night when we walked into the room. It was a strong, humid smell. It wouldn't last long though. We either got used to it or it would dissipate pretty quickly, one of the two. Lastly, the bed was a little hard but that's just a preference thing. I like my mattresses a little softer. I was worried that the noise would be loud from the street (reading the reviews) but it wasn't bad at all. We used the ear plugs they gave us but we probably didn't even have to.
Very nice and clean. Right outside Clapham Common on clapham South side so great place to stay for anyone attending a festival there! Sw4 or Calling festivals :)
liked the location, just round the corner from the tube station. Also close to shops, eg. Marks and Spencer Simply Food so we could buy all of our supplies for Wimbledon. Bonus having a fridge in the room. Very clean and comfortable.
A bit noisy outside on the Friday.
Perfect location. Short taxi ride to Wimbledon which was the purpose of our stay. Had a parking space which is very rare in London. Clean, tidy and comfy room. Ear plugs provided for traffic and underground noises but this wasn't a problem and they weren't needed.
Great location and older building. Clean and quiet. Central area.
Had to go to reception for WI FI connection.
I have booked that hotel because of its location near Clapham Junction Station and spent ther just one night. It is quite new, very cozy and clean and has a nice and green front garden. Room was on the top floor. It was clean and had a new furniture and shower room. In the room was coffee and tea facility. Room size is reasonable at least for one person.
I couldn't find the TV remote control!
Nice room, everything we needed was there (hairdryer, water boiler, tea). Comfy bed, very kind staff.
Hot water needs a little time, low pressure on the shower.
I can't speak highly enough of the Gateway Hotel. Before booking, I had already read a lot of the comments on here - and I have to say, I have nothing but praise for the service, friendliness and location/value for money that the hotel offers. From the moment that we arrived, they made us feel at home - the manager and staff were so accomodating; they provided a baby bed for my daughter, took the time to show us around, give us recommendations and made it clear that they were happy to help us in any way. The location is fabulous - just a few steps from the metro, near to shops and amenities, and in a gorgeous old style building with lovely bay windows. Our room was light and airy - we were facing the road, and while I have read in other comments that the noise was perhaps an issue - we did not find this at all. In fact, my 1 year old daughter slept, well, like a baby, and did not wake at all during the night. The staff passed by to tidy each afternoon while we were out (light vaccum, new towels and bins changed) which meant we could really take a break, without worrying about anything (and as a new Mum, I really appreciated it!). This is one of the friendliest hotels I have stayed in - and I have travelled quite a bit around the world; I can definitely recommend the Gateway to anyone, families, couples or individuals. Thank you so much again to the staff for making us feel at home and we hope to see you again next time we come to London!
We loved everything about the Gateway Hotel. The only thing we didn't like was leaving - even our daughter didn't want to have to go home!
