The Hotel was nice, and we thought the rate was very good for central London. Our room was small (which you expect for a London hotel), but all the fittings and fixtures were new and well thought-out. We found the queen-sized bed to be more than adequate for the two of us, plus there was a small desk, though not a great deal of other room.
The drawbacks were, potentially, transient, but worth mentioning. First, and most inconveniently, the lift (elevator) was not operating while we were there (two days). This meant a three-floor trudge up to our room each time we came in. Fortunately, the hotel staff was very solicitous, and laboriously carried our (heavy) luggage up and down for us, but this was really not ideal.
The other problem was outside their control, but the Paddington station is currently under construction, and on one of my visits I had to walk all the way to the far end of the station (with my luggage) to get the Tube to St. Pancras. This was a long, hot, and unpleasant trudge, and really eliminated the anticipated location advantage of the hotel.
All that said, we found the hotel staff polite and the price was right, and we may try the hotel again on our next trip to London.
