Upon our arrival at the Shaftsbury metropolis we were informed there was some problem with the air conditioning. we took the receptionist at his word and agreed to stay at an alternative hotel for one night while they rectified the problem. The hotel taxi brought us to another hotel and upon arrival we were informed this was not the correct... More

This hotel in reality has nothing to do with what you'd imagine. It's just one entrance in a row of many others in one building (all of them are different hotels). The room I got was unbelievable. The size was about 3 m3 - just a tiny bed and 50 cm of space. Another amazing thing is the blanket -... More

The location was decent enough to be in London and close to Paddington station. People were nice and also the rooms were clean, extremely small but manageable if it's just for two people or yourself. Would probably not do a family trip here. My and my fiance were just fine and paid just about the cheapest price we could have... More

I booked this hotel and after our experience there now wish I had read the reviews here. When we arrived at about 18:00 on the day of our booking we were informed that there was a problem with the airconditioning (in January in London??), and arrangements had been made for us at an alternative hotel, further out of London. After... More

I can't believe that this hotel is recommended by 74%! First of all I booked this hotel on the morning the day I arrived. That is not very smart. It was very expensive. But I saw it was a 4 star hotel and it looked nice on the site so I just booked. The site (booking.com) say (jan 28.) that... More

I booked this hotel 3 days ago to stay for two nights - tonight and tomorrow. After reading the reviews on this and other hotels in the Shaftesbury Group I thought it best to ring and confirm my reservation. Upon doing so I have been informed that there has been a problem with the heating for the last two days... More

I've stayed in this hotel before and it was always nice. Staff was little reserved but respectful. Rooms small,but that was the case with every hotel I stayed in London... I had breakfast included in the price and it was great but I wouldn't pay 15 GBP extra for it because it is too much. Loved plasma tv in room... More

We were searching for a non-expensive hotel, but we wanted it being comfortable, and in a walking distance from some of the attractions in London. Of course, we also wanted it to be near metro station. At first it seemed impossible, keeping in mind that we both are students and we are from Spain (here is much more cheaper than... More

This hotel is one of dozens of small hotels lining the roads of the Paddington and Hyde Park area. I've stayed at several and this is the best I've been to so far. We got a clean, reasonably sized room with decent furnishings and a good en suite. The staff was efficient and nice enough. Don't get the breakfast -... More

My wife and I stayed for three nights in a club room (join the premier club for free) with full english breakfast for 95gbp/nt. Location is only 5min walk from Paddington station (heathrow connection) and Edgeware Road underground. Plenty of good resturants in the area (try Delima right next door). Rooms were typically London small but very clean and efficient.... More
