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Very old and outdated, damp everywhere, washbasins hanging from the wall, rubbish in the wardrobes, hot water limited to a couple of hours a day and you have to pay extra for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...

This was the most shocking stay for me in London ever. We just needed to sleep over but at this place I was even afraid to take off my shoes in the room. We arrived late (2 pm) but the room was dirty and unclean, there was no space at all & leaking tub in the room! It was like... More

Our friend who lives in London booked us in the continental hotel for few days as he said this hotel is cheaper than a hostel without having to share the room with strangers. We had our own room which was clean, big and had good beds, we had also breakfast with this price which is ample. Now that we know... More

We do agree with Agnes K where will you find in central London so cheap prices. My friends and I stayed in a room with four beds, the ceiling was high, the beds were almost new and the room was clean, we shared the bathroom which was clean all the time.
