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

It has been the nicer place where I have eaten pub food, by that I mean that you don't get confused by its name (don't expect some kind of hight cuisine). The food was alright and the quantities more than generous (that made me specially happy, i am tired of seeing big plates empty). i just missed a bit if... More

Near Paddington station/Underground. Excellent for touring London. Found it great to access the underground to all where we needed to go. Hotel very clean, rooms small but adequate. Hotel staff very helpful. We will definitely use this as our base again!

Stayed here for 3 nights in December and I was shocked at how stunning this hotel was, very glamorous... The rooms are just so chic. It's literally with in walking distance of Oxford street and hyde park. The breakfast is continental but do have sausage and bacon which I wasn't expecting! But everything about this hotel was just spot on...... More

I stayed at this hotel on 8th December as we wanted to be local to covent garden. They charged us £179 for 1 night without breakfast which I feel was a rip off. They obviously know they can charge this because of location! The look from the outside and the ground floor was ok but the room was tiny, my... More

Booked up to stay here as it looked nice, not the cheapest but was kind of last minute so it was fine. When we got there we were told our room was having building work done (sorry but surely that level of building work would have been in the diary well before I booked up!) was told they had booked...
