Really great location a stones throw from Paddington Station. Personnel were very friendly and helpful, both at reception and in the dining room. Rooms were comfortable. Stairs are steep if. You are concerned but understandable.

About
Description
The perfect place to stay during your visit in London. Very nice neighborhood, a personal favourite, with nice cafes and restaurants. A very nice walk to Hyde Park is recommended or to Oxford Street for those More shopping lovers, both are walking distance away. Rooms have been upgraded and there is always someone to help. The price is very low, for what you get, so be sure to check us out. Less
