What do you expect for £100 a night in London? Clean room, warm, lumpy bed crushed into one corner one - very small bedroom and shower room. Though breakfast is included I wouldn't bother. The food is actually very nice, except for the fact it's served with white bread or nothing. The problem for me was that it's served in... More

Good stay for a few days London. Don't expect too much. Expect clean rooms, bit of a noisy Hotel with a simple breakfast. The price you pay insnt too high either so it is fair. Good place to stay near Hide Park and Oxfort street (walking distance). I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again if I don't... More

You got what you payed for. The hotel was alright, the rooms okay and they were clean and the breakfast was fine. The location isn't ideal if you're looking for shopping but is located really close to paddington station, 2 minutes walking distance. This hotel is a good place to stay at if you're just planning on staying a few... More

We stayed here to see Tom Jones in Hyde Park. The staff were extremely helpful and couldn't do more for you including letting us check in early. The rooms are basic but clean and yes for a triple were a little cramped but for the price in the city of London what do you expect! Would definitely stay again. My... More

Not the best location, small rooms with thin walls and there was a family staying next door to us with loud kids, nice staff, good food, good price. A long walk from any restaurants and tubes. They have a weird policy with leaving your key at reception when leaving the hotel. Get what you pay for very average.

Nice little hotel near Paddington and Hyde park. Room was OK but nothing more as I had expected. Breakfast isn't really good, but there are lots of pubs nearby where you can eat nice English breakfast. Considering the price it's a place actually.

Good location near Paddington station and a lot of restaurants. Good but not overwhelming breakfast. The room OK, but are there never any fire escapes at London hotels? Our first room was in the basement with a window into a shaft.

It is a hotel I have mixed feeling. It is convenient to travel by bus or tube but the street outside the hotel is dirty. Its facilities and amenities are of poor conditions but it is also very cheap. Value for money is a fair comment for the single room I spent two nights in early June. I am satisfied... More

I stayed one night, in a single room. These are my conclusions: Perfect location if you need to be near Paddington station and Hyde Park, Staff are very courteous. Breakfast in English but rather limited in variety - ok overall. BUT: I honestly did not think there are still hotels like this in London. One of the worst I encountered... More
