I've just returned from this hotel. I felt it was more of a b&b. They only do breakfast, which was disappointing. It was meant to be continental but it's was toast or cereal. On our first morning there was only white bread but the second brown bread made an appearance. They had a a selection of jam. There was what... More

Booked this hotel for my Niece to spend four nights in London. She said it was a great value hotel. Good breakfast. Clean room with good facilities. Room was a little small. Location only 5 min walk from Paddington. Lots of local eating establishments. Close to all the main attractions. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is very well situated on a prime site with easy walks into the city accessing all amenities and tourist sights. The hotel has incredibly poor car parking arrangement with a very small car park. It also charges£15 per night for residents which quite frankly is outrageous. The same period in the nearest car park which is quite some... More

The hotel is one of many along Sussex Gardens. Typical central London townhouse conversion which normally means cramped, noisy and overpriced. I found this particular hotel to be very well fitted out - modern floor and fittings, nice shower, heated towel rail and aircon - and reasonable by London prices. Breakfast is served downstairs and is just above average for... More

The Hotel is very noisy, all the doors slam shut and the setup of the hotel is very loud. Also, asked them to clean our room several times, it did not happen!!:( Same stain were on the floor when we got there from previous. We asked for accomodations for 3 people and got accomodations for 2 people, then they told... More

Rooms: clean. Beds: nice. Breakfast: okay. Not my fav part of London, but objectively, the location is very good with Paddington connecting you to anywhere you want to go. Had a fantastic stay here with two friends. The rooms are small, but we didn't mind.

Great stay, ignore previous reviews was concerned when I arrived but nothing like review. Clean spacious room brand new bathrooms, reception couldn't be any more helpful if they tried. 5 min walk away from underground and shops/places to eat. Great stay will defiantly return :)

After reading the other reviews we were in some trepidation as to what to expect, but not wanting to spend more than £100 a night we thought we would treat it as research! We were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness but unpleasantly disappointed at just how small the bedroom was ( bed against wall and about 15" of floor space... More

Very old building, needs a lot of renovation, electricity went off while we were there because of a blown fuse and took ages to fix, stains on walls from heater etc, could do with a lick of paint at least. Breakfast sucks, but that's not really a big deal for me. Slept badly but mostly due to heatwave. They did... More
