I have been staying in this hotel in May 2012. I booked a singol room but I think no room can be so small. Honestly speaking I think it is very bad image hotel that are offering room which are like 4 squared meter. I was of course not expecting to have like king size bed or something like that... More

we stayed at this hotel after X'mas until NY 2012. we booked this hotel through the internet, and saw the price went tripled in a span of 2 weeks!! needless to say we're pretty pleased. the hotel is near the Paddington station, so getting to and fro the airport was a breeze, and very near to the Paddington tube station....

My Mother and I were transferred to the Best Western Shaftsbury upon our arrival at the Park Grand following our overnight flight on May 19th from Chicago. We were told our room there would be ready at 2. After coming back at that time and desperately wanting to get settled, our room still was not ready - several others were... More

The location was great. We arrived from an overnight flight at noon and our rooms were not ready until 2PM. They let us leave our luggage but we had to walk around for a bit until we could check in. The room was incredibly small (single bed) and the bathroom was absurd. I had to turn sideways to walk into... More

I'd booked one night at this hotel via a booking website. Payment was taken immediately. I'd had a very long day on one of the hottest days of the year and all I wanted was a shower, a cup of tea and a bed. I arrived at the hotel about 11pm and it was extremely busy at reception. When I... More

I stayed in this hotel hesitantly because the hotel I usually stay in near Paddington was booked solid. The experience I had here was terrible. When I first checked in I was shuffled across the street to another building and they claimed that these were the "remodeled" rooms. The room numbering was confusing but once I got to the room...

Hotel room VERY small, hardly qualified as a double, decor very tired with one of the smallest shower cubicles that I have ever experienced, there must be people who would not be able to get through the very small entrance! Reported twice that the TV didn't work, on the second was told "my colleague will come some time as he... More

If your room is too small, ask for a new one. They vary a lot. Do not stay here if you don't like stairs--they are everywhere. Rooms are clean. Staff is nice. The A/C is not great. Bathrooms are small. I would stay again to save money but not a vacation spot for sure.

We booked into this hotel for an overnight stay, as we were going to the theatre in Leceister Suqare in the West End. We were given a very small room at first, bearing in mind, that this is a Best Western Hotel and I am a best Western member of some time now. I complained to the management. they responded... More
