We stayed here for one night as a family of four. Reviews weren't good but we thought we got what we payed for. When you pay less than a hundred pounds for a family of four in the city centre within walking distance to lots of the sights then it's great. Paddington tube was 2/3 mins walk. Hyde park around...

The Admiral hotel is an central location, very close to Paddington metro station (serves 3 lines) and Lancaster Gate (serves 1 line). There are total 4 lines for the undeground in the area. This is very useful for a tourist who wants to use metro for exploring quickly the city. Unfortunately we were so disapointed when they gave us our... More

Worst hotel I've ever stayed in my entire life. Did not get the room I paid for, cracks on the wall, smelly very old style furniture and beddings. Did not get the room even on the second day. I got a very small one no space, no windows, very smelly very broke down. The roof fan almost fell down, it... More

Booked a couple of nights at this hotel to meet up with friends who had already made a reservation at this hotel. The hotel seems to cater largely for tourists from Europe on a tight budget and who have reserved online. On arrival, we found we were to stay in another hotel a couple of doors along the road from... More

I booked 4 rooms at this hotel based on the admiral write up and photographs. On arrival, I was told that 1 room had been cancelled because I had made 2 seperate bookings (an extra person joined us so needed extra room) they assumed I had mistakenly booked my fourth room. They only thought to ask on the day of... More

I had some problems with this hotel. I booked months in advance - June to stay in September - and even then they put me in a room downstairs (should I say basement?). Kind of claustrophobic as there was no window, only a hatch that could be opened or closed depending on the weather! Then the TV remote control was... More

Stayed here for a few days with my girlfriend to celebrate her birthday, and our experience exceeded all expectations considering the price we paid for our double room. Check in was swift, and the reception helped us with our bags to our room on the first floor. The room was a nice size and very clean, with a little balcony,... More

VERY DISATISFIED. We booked 3 double rooms well in advance to attend Proms in the park. When we arrived, we were told by other guests we had to check in at another hotel a few doors down. On checking in we were told that only1 room had been reserved for us. I showed the receptionist my copy of reservation clearly... More
