I booked the hotel through LastMinute.com - I suppose it's a question of what do you get for £85 per night. Usually with lastminute - quite a lot! I was offered the basement room which was incredibly old fashioned and had no O2 signal. I went for the 4th floor room. On the way up they were storing large cardboard... More

This hotel takes the concept of a budget, no frills hotel to a whole new low level. Yet it cost a fortune to stay here. Some examples of the experience: There is no lift. Walking up the narrow dirty stairs, there are lots of cardboard boxes and plaster boards on the landings. I had to touch a grubby door handle... More

I have booked this hotel throug booking.com, they gave us a room which was just painted. Room wasn't even properly cleaned from paint works. Breakfast was very poor. Only thing which was good is internet connection and perfect location. I will avoid this hotel in future.

This place is as says, Value for money. It's cheap and cheerful, and the staff were friendly and helpful, and the location was brilliant. It is located less than a minutes walk from Paddington, and is virtually opposite pubs and cafes, however no noise came through (at least for us, although we were 4 floors up). Unfortunately, being four floors... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights for a short stay in London having booked visits to the Imperial War Museum, Bond in Motion exhibition, Elvis at the O2 and a theatre visit for Sunny Afternoon. Staff at this hotel were pleasant and helpful. Our room was a semi-basement room handily placed for the breakfast room which was on... More

Tiny rooms yet located almost on top of Paddington Station. No lift in this hotel - our room was located on level 3, so many tight stairs to navigate with my heavy suitcase! If you have large, heavy luggage don't stay here as it's quite scary carrying this up / down the stairs. Shower drain overflowed although management fixed it.... More

This is by no means a great hotel, but it gets the job done. We got moved here from their other property in Kings Cross when they had a problem with the room there. Check-in was quick and smooth, with someone at the desk even though it was past midnight. The room was clearly recently renovated, and generally had a... More

廁所沒有馬桶,說有書桌也沒有書桌,也沒有椅子,房間霉味很重,又很貴!! 服務生人數很少,以至於沒人幫我開門,在門外等了10分鐘!! No toilet in bathroom. Also, they promised that table and chair are included in my room, but nothing here. The room still musty when I came in, not worth to stay!! The number of staff is not enough, therefore, no one can open the door for me and I waited outside at least 10 minutes...

London was going to be hard to get a half decent hotel for a good price so I was shocked when I found this hotel at £62 a night (booked in January). Perfect location, decent photographs, good price. What could go wrong? We arrived there overwhelmed at its exterior/location, entered the building to a receptionist that didn't seem interested in... More
