Have just got back from a two nite weekend stay in London with my boyfriend. The hotel is easy to find, straight down the road from Paddington station- which is why i booked it. On arrival we were politely greeted by friendly but foreign staff with good English. The reception was modern and clean with fresh flowers- always a good... More

I would not recommend staying at this "hotel" to anyone. I had prebooked a self contained studio apartment in January 2007 for a 5 night stay in July/August 2007with another booking company (Quality Apartments London). Arrived early in the morning after a 30 hour flight and checked in. Could not get into the apartment as it was too early, so... More

I booked this hotel via a reliable online source but it was a disaster. I have stayed at a different property Hogarth Kensington, which is all owned by the same conpany. I thought since the prior experience was great I would have no problems but I was fooled. The webiste boast amentites(iron/irioning board ,internet access, air conditioning) none were in... More

Don't be conned by the title "suites". A sink and a kettle do not a kitchen make - especially when the rooms are already so tiny. BEWARE - they seem to have a passion for overbooking. Turned away several guests - with bookings - when I turned up. Took some time to persuade them to find me a room to... More

I booked this hotel without any knowledge of the area or what I would be in for, but compared to many reviewers I was pretty happy with the accommodations and I understand the rate I paid is pretty typical. The hotel is a bunch of old Georgian homes cobbled together so the hallways are mazelike and narrow but that wasn't... More

Be prepared for very bad service and lots in inconveniences. Location is OK, that's about it. Hotel staff obviously is the biggest problem!

Let's be honest about London hotels - if you want them to be up to American standards (spacious, modern, flashy) then London is not the place to visit unless you have a very generous accommodation budget. I was booked into this property by my company. When I found out, I immediately came to Trip Advisor to see what I was... More

We could use more channels though. Like most other reviews on this site, we were just abit disappointed by the size of... More
