      The toilet in the room was very bad. I had to purchase bleach to clean before i could use. During my stay, i later discovered that it was the sewage that is not functioning well. Excretion keep coming back after the toilet is flushed and left for some hours

    • Single

      Conveniently located for Paddington station/tube, hence reasonable proximity for central London, and the room had en-suite facilities

      Difficulty of access to/from room, size of room, poor facilites in room, and very basic breakfast facilities,

    • Single
      6.6

      the reception staff were helpful and friendly,the location was good

      the breakfast was poor.good quality bread would have been nice instead of cheapest white.also would have expected the cleaning staff to replace dirty cups in room with clean ones

      Nothin at all,

      it was filthy, dangerous need health and safety to go there it will be closed down, had broken plug sockets hanging of wall, one towel to share amongst three people for 3 days, kitchen was disgusting, i would not recommend this to anyone, please stay away, after complaining we just got sarcasim answers back, we also had to pay upon arrival before we saw the rest of the hotel and room. The location wasnt too bad at all but that is the only good thing i will say

    • Couple

      I liked only the location of the hotel.

      The rooms and the facilities were quite poor, not like mentioned in the website. The rooms were very small, the double bed was at the size of a single bed in a usual 3 star hotel, there were even no room to stand inside the room, heating system was not properly operating, all equipments in the bathroom was too old and dirty, and sink was not working. The breakfast served was quite poor. To sum up, I was quite disappointed with this hotel. That was not worth the money I paid for.

      It was not the cleanest hotel I have been! Also they had problems with the rooms ! in the begging the give a room that stings and it is not like the one u had choosen but if u will complain they will give u another! The y do the same to many guests! I saw it by speaking to the other guest that they were there from many countries! The staff was polite but this doesnt change the fact that the hotel is not clean and the services bad! The breakfast was very poor!

      Cleaness, breakfast and organisation!

      Centrally located and it is near to beautiful parks.

      The phone at the hotel didn't receive overseas call , as my wife in several occasions tried but could not reach me. The bathroom when turning on the tap water made uncomfortable noise and it smelled.

      Travel links for tubes and buses were excellent. Reception staff very friendly and helpful especially when air con was not working at 1am in the morning – they came and sorted it out.

      I was upgraded to a double which was not worth the money I paid for a single. Room was next to the kitchen which had the extractor going all night which was very noisy and staff would not turn it off. Room was very small and very hot with no outside window although had air conditioning which I could not get to work. One side of the double bed was against a wall making exiting very difficult. Wardrobe only opened 6 inches due to bed being in the way. Shower cubicle was too small to take a shower properly and the doors didn’t close properly so water went all over the bathroom floor. Breakfast started at 7.30 which was too late for me to have breakfast and get to my conference by 8.30.

      the hotel's rooms were so tiny you couldn't bread in.some of the rooms were in the basement without any windows.The breakfast area also without windows and very tiny, the value of the food was very poor and unsatisfaying. not recomended for anyone above 21 years old or backpacker

    • Single
      6.6

      The location is very close to the paddington station, main station to go everywhere in London, or outside London. Even if I consider it is quite expensive one room in this hotel is one of the most convenient based on location and price from many other options.

      The room is very small and the price was quite high for the space or the facilities they offer.

    • Couple
      4.6

      The only good thing was the location...

      -Could only switch the lights off in the room from outside the room -the toilet seat was broken -the plug socket didn't work -I had to ask for towels -and the tv was tiny, fuzzy and had a green tint to it... i would recommend it for the location but it was definitely not worth the price i paid and if i had been staying for more than one night i would have had to leave.

      Close proximity to where we wanted to be, quiet for an hotel in city centre, easy booking and payment, soft bed linen, polite pleasant staff and clean throughout, room and public areas.

      Would like to have had a plug in the hand basin in the bedroom and possibly shower gel, (I know it is additional cost). Also on tea tray sachets of hot chocolate in addition to tea and coffee.

    • Group of friends

      location very close to the tube station and close to the shops. Hotel was clean although I would describe it as a B&B more then a hotel.

      Not guaranteed parking.....on a first come first served basis with only about 3 parking spaces available if the staff aren't using them!!!! Parking was the main reason for booking the hotel and it should state clearer it is allocated this way. Room very hot, no hair drier and tea and coffee was not topped up the next day, although they did clean the cups!! Breakfast was served in a small room also very hot and we had to share a table with other people on both days as there were not enough tables. Breakfast was a very basic continental breakfast served with pre cut sliced bread and I would describe it more as a Eastern European breakfast!

    • Couple
      4.2

      The location was ok.

      We were told to change rooms 3 times to rooms that had not yet been cleaned. We came home late at night and we didn't have towels, soap or anything to shower. The sink was blocked and the general facilities ie shower, toilet were dirty and not pleasant. At least the manager was smart enough to give us 1 night for free because it was that bad. I am not picky and have always been satisfied with where I stay, but this place was a disaster.
