Walking distance from Paddington so you great for taking the train to Heathrow. Walking distance from Hydepark too! Good restaurants around, recommend the Swan Pub nearby. Relatively neat and clean. Bed comfort AVERAGE, but I have been spoiled before. Good but only Wired internet connection in the rooms, so bring along an access point if you want to use your... More

I have never written a review before, but I feel I need to share my experience of this hotel. We booked a room for 2 nights in summer, it was reasonably priced. We arrived and were greeted with hostility from staff. The room we were given was a box. However, it was only for 2 nights so this didn't bother... More

We got there and a nice and friendly receptionist offered to 'upgrade' our two rooms to what they call 'Club Room' (which as we discovered later means not as horrible as the regular rooms). One of the rooms (307) was close to the lift and it was like having in your room all the people chatting outside waiting for the... More

It is hard to reconcile the great range of reviews for this hotel, they seem to range from excellent to terrible. I do not doubt the veracity of the bad reviews but I can only write a review based upon my own experiences and, quite frankly, that was great. I stayed at the hotel for two nights with my wife....

The hotel is located in a charming street, very close to two tube stations (Paddington and Lancaster Gate) within 5-10 minutes walk. The Paddington station is the terminus of the Heathrow Airport express train. It is a very convenient location for visitors to London. While the room was very small and the building oddly configured, it was clean and well-maintained.... More

My partner and I stayed in this hotel and had to be moved twice whilst we were staying there. The first time was because the air conditioning did not work properly and also the room was tiny. The second room was a bit bigger but after two nights my partner woke up with bites all over him. After some investigating,... More

The location of the hotel is good. Rooms very very small but clean however can hear noise from neighbouring rooms. Did have a problem as no hot water, raised this at reception and the girl just shrugged and said it was reported - she had awful attitude. Would rate hotel at 3* not 4* Would stay again if could again... More
