This has to have been the worst experience I have ever had in any hotel, It is very very rundown, old and not a bit nice, I would even go as far to say it is not very clean. The rooms are tiny and have not been decorated I would guess in decades, the ensuite is tiny with a shower... More

Bed was comfy, wifi strong and free, close to Paddington station, and receptionists nice. But...I got the 4th floor room that smells like damp mold. No elevator. Thank goodness the weather was nice and street noise doesn't bother me so I could keep the window open the entire time - otherwise the smell would have been unbearable. I don't have... More

We were also told that we had one of their better... More

One hadn't even been cleaned the others had hair on the bed, stained ceilings and just a disgusting condition. It's not 3 star.. We refused to stay, the girl on reception said we would get a refund,... More

Having booked it we decided to take a look at the reviews on trip advisor. Have to say was very worried at this point because of the amount of complaints and pictures that... More

The room and bathroom was clean... carpet could need a change though. But then again who use carpets those days?! Street is silent even though its only 1 min from Paddington station. If you can't sleep in the city I would say - go somewhere else... Room and bed was made daily. Bed was very soft, so depents what you... More
