I'm quite confused at the many negative reviews on this hotel, it's lovely for the prices offered, a lot cheaper than expected. It's a lot more "luxury" standard than a £114 a night TravelInn. I arrived at the hotel alone (met up with spouse later), to check-in to a busy reception area and checked in within a few minutes, the... More

We booked a twin room at this hotel for 2 nights via Laterooms at quite a good price so perhaps should have been prepared for something to be wrong with the room. When we first saw the room we thought it looked good - nice decor, clean, plasma tv, great view etc. However this changed in about 5 minutes when... More

My partner got me the weekend break for my 30th birthday 24-26 January so was really looking forward to it. I rang the hotel before we set off to make sure we had a room booked and breakfast was included as we booked over the internet. Everything was fine and i asked if we could leave our case with them...

As if landing in London on the coldest weekend in years wasnt enough, there was nothing to warm or cheer us up about this dreary little hotel in the heart of London. Agreed, its not meant to be an exclusive hotel, but its not meant to be exclusively average either! They first checked me into Room 30, which is, truth... More

Stayed here for 3nights.Great location. We caught the train to Paddington station and found the hotel easily and only a short walking distance.You can catch the Big Bus Tour just a few streets away..Also a choice of places to eat nearby. Staff were friendly and always helpful.Rooms are small but we were told to expect this in London.Plus we were... More

The heating in our first room didn't work, and only after having demanded to move rooms twice, did they give us another room. The staff (predominantly Eastern European) aren't very friendly and having returned after a late Saturday night out, we entered our room to discover that a member of staff had gone through our things and stolen cash and...

We booked this hotel as part of a British Airways package deal - thought the price was good and location convenient for London sightseeing...specifically intended to NOT stay in an Americanized hotel, but...I'd have gladly paid more for better accommodations. Our nightmare began in just trying to find the hotel via rented car. (That's another issue altogether, maybe, - I... More

Not all rooms are refurbished. We got a room that was quite bad, the tv didn't even work. Make sure you get breakfast included in your booking. They changed us to a different room after we complained three times. This location is not ideal to downtown. Victoria is a much better location.

As others have stated the rooms and bathroom are small and suffer from design flaws, but not so much that it should be a problem. Room was comfortable, clean, everything worked if on the small side (not so small by London standards just could have been laid out better really). However I found the majority of the staff friendly but... More

We arrived several hours before check in. The friendly staff were more than happy to look after our bags while we went to our business meeting. Checked in later, retrieving our luggage with no fuss - and all done with a smile. The room (on the 3rd floor, but the lift worked) was smaller than expected - almost no room... More
