Went to check in to be told that we had been relocated around the corner at another hotel of similar quality. We had lots of bags and started the Walk to find they had given us the driving directions which were the long way if you are walking. New hotel was ok but further away from our friends and they...

We stayed for one night in this disgusting little Paddington hotel. Will NEVER stay here again. Got a room in the lower ground floor, with spiders and mould all over the walls. Smelled of chlorine, as to overpower the smell of rot and mould. Neighbour room talked quietly on the phone during the night - we could hear everything she... More

Bad hotel. Very dirty. Been here a ten years ago. Had a very small and very dirty room. Toothpaste of former guest was still on the sink. Didn't dare to take a shower in the dirty showertub. No elevator, very poor breakfast (didn't ate there, bought breakfast somewhere else). Fire extinguishers were overdued. Staff was unpolite, the only thin that... More

Admittedly, I was slightly worried about visiting and staying at the Mina House Hotel, having looked at reviews, however it seemed good value considering the location and therefore took my chances. I was visiting London as a tourist with my other half, and I have to say, the Mina House was exactly what we needed. It was clean, and despite... More

We only paid £40 for a night, so I could over look the fact the room was tiny and only one light bulb worked. I could even turn a blind eye to the mold on the ceiling and the filthy carpet but what I find totally unacceptable is, that at 9am there was no hot water so we were unable... More

I have stayed at quite a number of "budget" hotels in Paddington and this is certainly one of the best in my experience. I guess the other would be Tune. Any room I have stayed in at the Mina (including the basement) has been refurbished to a decent standard. They are clean and tidy and (rather eccentrically) the showers are... More

I return to MinaHouse each time to am in London. Great manager, good prices and decent room sizes. If you can, spring for the "quad" room size, like room 103 (bottom floor) and get a little extra room, totally worth it. To clear a few things up: 1. Many buildings in Europe have no elevators. American tourists are often shocked... More

Arrived at 8pm to find after a day of walking around london we would not be able to have a shower until the next day and that theres nothing they can do (not even move us rooms) in the end we checked out the next day with no shower and no sympathy from staff! Great location but poor service... very... More
