Check in in the continental hotel was smooth no problem, the receptionist was helpful gave us free map of London. Our room was on the four floor no problem with that, the room was okay clean, the bathroom a bit small but was working and it was enough for one person. We recommend this hotel.

We spent 3 nights at this hotel which offers basic accommodation but clean, our experience was positive. The staff is friendly and helpful, our room which was en suite was clean and quiet, the breakfast decent.

Very old and outdated, damp everywhere, washbasins hanging from the wall, rubbish in the wardrobes, hot water limited to a couple of hours a day and you have to pay extra for towels! There were stains on every surface, including the sheets, and I'd characterize the room as a cupboard..Administrators are so nasty.They act the way that you feel uncomfortable.... More

The location was good, but it was not clean, and breakfast was not actually good, I expect better conditions but unfortunately I will not be there one more time, the hot water was available at the specific time .

We booked directly in this hotel, their prices are great really cheap and the location is excellent just around the corner from Paddington station and bus stop. The place is clean, the staff are friendly and the breakfast is ample.

Speechless !!! This has to be the worlds worst hotel on earth, it's so unbelievably dirty, the rooms are never cleaned and the sheets are used, my sheets were blood stained, I took the safe option and slept dressed so as not to catch anything, pointless complaining as the reception staff just tell you tough luck and no refund, unbelievable...
