The Balkan Lodge Hotel, Oxford
Quite Comfortable
This was an excellent place. As i needed to be at the university, it was a bit out of the way, but the breakfast was nice, the staff friendly, and the room well appointed and clean. The mattress was one of the hardest I've ever slept on, and the blankets were thin, but the heater worked well and I slept like a log. The bathtub was a real pleasure - a deep jacuzzi tub. I'd do it all again.

The Balkan Lodge is Fabulous
The staff of the Balkan Lodge makes you feel at home. They answer questions about how to use the public transport if you choose. They make sure their guests have everything they need. The

Unusually good for Oxford in this price range
Great for Oxford ..this does seem more like a hotel tho small, with a good sized breakfast room, separate small room with small counter that looked like it could be a bar, and a separate small sitting room with sofas and plugs so you could potentially sit somewhere other than you room. Hotel was very clean and well maintained. Owner John lives on premises and very helpful with details of getting around Oxford, avoiding traffic and traffic tickets, etc. very accommodating including help with getting luggage up and down the stairs since there is no elevator. Better than concierge service at more expensive hotels. Excellent signage makes it easy to find this place even in the dark night. Great parking lot with plenty of spaces. Coop market with fresh baked goods daily just down the block. Straight shot to walk to the high street with all he shops and restaurants. 15 minutes to get to the shops and 30 minutes to get all the way to the pedestrianized Cornmarket street. There is also the number 3 bus that runs along the road in front of the hotel and along the high street so if you don't want to walk, you can take the bus. The one drawback is you need to bring your own hairdryer..dual currency of you are from another continent, because the hairdryer which is attached to the wall overheats and cuts off so you can only dry your hair 45 seconds at a time and have to wait in between for the thing to cool down so it will restart.

Charming hotel with great location and breakfast
Actually a very charming small hotel (maybe 10 units?), and a great location for visiting Oxford. The service was very friendly, and helpful. Every morning there was a lovely, individually prepared breakfast with several options (including the full English breakfast). In terms of location, it is a short and easy bus trip with the #3 bus passing by the stop across the street every 8 minutes, and even a nice walk (~30 minutes) to the center if you are so inclined...and I regularly walked back because it was a charming stroll down Iffley Road. And the neighborhood itself was nice with a fish and chips shop on the same block, and two pubs (at least) within a short walk. The rooms ARE a bit old in terms of furnishing, and I did have one occasion when the hot water did not come (but all other times it was fine)...but I suppose it actually has a nice old England charm to it. And the bed was perfectly comfortable and sufficient. Good internet access, small television (if wanted) and in-room coffee and biscuit. A good value given the cost of other accommodations in Oxford.
