We were in London for one night for a funeral. This hotel was great for getting out and about as it is so close to Paddington station and underground. It is set back on a quiet street yet only a 1 minute walk from the station. The hotel was clean tidy and breakfast good we had to cross the rd...

We stayed here this week...I was hesitant after the reviews....Maybe should take more notice of them. Staff were friendly, it was also clean and freshly decorated however it's quite old fashioned inside. I didn't like the room set up for 5 of us...walk through one room to get to back 2 bedrooms ( no doors) 2 sinks in 2 back...

A tidy, neat hotel which is situated across both sides of the road that is well located for Paddington Station which gives access to the whole of London very easily and quickly. Reception staff friendly, helpful and efficient with very clear and concise explanation of facilities, breakfast location etc. Room was clean and well appointed although no air conditioning which...

Stayed here last fall and this review is long overdue. Maybe things are better now, but I kept thinking about our experience here, which kind of put a damper on our whole family trip. Basic budget hotel, old beds, not super comfy, bathroom so tiny you can hardly turn around (and I'm a 5'3" thin girl). I could tell they...

Myself and my friends arrived on a Friday evening, before we were shown to our room we were told we have to pay for the next night in advance, this was strange to us but we went along with it. We were shown to a triple room which was ridiculously small, with a tiny bathroom! Tired from our journey we...

Myself & 2 work colleagues booked this hotel for a weekend away. We stayed one night and could not face another. The tiny room we shared (double and single bed, with tiny shower room) was riddled with bed bugs. What was interesting was the acceptance from the gentleman at the desk (as if to say 'oh yeah..THOSE bugs..'). We were...

Good big family room slept 5 easily and was clean and tidy - but tiny shower and trying to get everyone through breakfast before 8.30am ( last orders ) is poor and caused queues and unnecessary hassle. It is convenient to Paddington and indeed Hyde Park - but it is what it is - a basic budget hotel.

The good things first. It was clean. It had a tea tray and basic toiletries. It had a fan to combat the London heat. The bad. Broken shower. Bathroom tiny and dirty. Old uncomfortable beds. Tiny TV. Breakfast was chaotic. Not enough tables, had to wait 20 mins to be seated. Paid for full English breakfast but was given choice...

Very conveniently located near Paddington station, the room was very clean and beds comfortable. The full English breakfast which was included was very tasty and a good start to our day. All in all this hotel was good value for money. Will thoroughly recommend.

Booking in was not the friendliest of affairs. We got told we were across the road at the other part of the hotel. Five sets of stairs later we found our room. It was small but functional. It was very hot despite the window being open. The room was ok for an overnight stay but would not want to stay...
