Decent Hotel, very close to Hyde Park (a short walk). Rooms were okay, but fridge was busted and cupboards seemed to need a bit of a fix. Elevator was not worth the risk of riding in. Good place to sleep after a busy day though. The lounge downstairs in nice.

Just come back from staying at this Hotel. I went to complain about the size of the room. It was one of those "special rates" things you find on the internet. I will not do this again. The room was one of the smallest I have ever seen.There were two people already complaining about the rooms whilst I was stood... More

When we arrived our room wasnt ready but we were able to leave our luggage with the receptionist. Its close to the train station and tube stations which was handy. When we got into our room, which was tiny and very difficult to find, the only upside was that the bed was big and comfy! The bathroom was very small... More

The generally possitive reviews and good price were what made me choose this hotel in the first place. The reviews were wrong and I suggest you heed my advice. I paid extra to get a deluxe room but there was nothing deluxe about what I was given. The cons are as follows: Star rating: The hotel sells itself as a... More

we stayed in a basement room across from the main hotel the room was so tiny, the bed was hard and dirty and the bathroom was filthy. We didnt get much sleep all night as there was some sort of courtyard outside our room and people were using it to smoke in through the night . On checking out we... More

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

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
