Excellent location. Staff friendly and efficient. Breakfast very good indeed. Room very clean. Bathroom tiny but had everything I needed. Hotel itself is a bit well worn but not a real issue for me although the very old, single glazed badly fitting windows will let in serious draughts in the winter! Had a little trouble connecting to wifi with the...

Our family of four were squeezed into the smallest hotel room we have ever stayed in. It was at the top of the hotel, fourth floor - elevator not trust worthy. We could barely walk around the beds. Not the cleanest place. The breakfast area is too small to accomodate all guests. We had to wait both morning for a...

Pleasant and helpful staff, booked last minute , ended up on top floor (4) key card did not work and lift was waiting for repair (done next day) so had to walk back down....and back up! Rooms not massive but these are old Victorian buildings , what you lack in space you gain in character. 4 mins walk from Paddington...

This hotel was booked as part of a package deal. I booked weekend trip with my son, staying two nights in single rooms. I read the reviews and was concerned about the number of complaints about noise and in particular noise from kitchen in the basement rooms. I therefore sent an email prior to visit explaining that I have a...

A lovely friendly hotel,clean and tidy, we enjoyed an adequate breakfast very friendly staff. A quick walk from Paddington Underground Station, central to Hyde Park, Marble Arch and the West End. We would recommend for a short stay in London at a very reasonable cost.

I called a week before my stay to cancel the reservation but the hotel was not very helpful and kept giving me the runaround. They said call Booking.com I called booking.com who said call the hotel. I went back and forth between both parties and both said they could not help me. So what is the point of having customer...

The hotel was decent for the money. Upon arrival they couldn't find out confirmation but the issue was quickly resolved. The rooms are small and you can hear everything outside your door. Try to avoid a room on the 4th floor if you have big luggage. The lift only goes to the 3rd floor and then you have to carry...

We came to the hotel having booked a 2 single bed room, hoping for not a massive room, just one that is a little spacious. However what we came to find was not like that at all. The room was tiny, there was no where to sit except for one of the two beds. The designers literally just about managed...

Clean hotel , walking distance from Paddington station. Suitable for Malaysians and Aseans . This hotel is 9 mins walk to Malaysian Hall Canteen and near other restaurants. I feel safe here as I always travel alone. Basic but with attached bathroom. Book early and get best rates .
