I will use this hotel again for sure, quite area, clean room and toilet, close to the station and the Hyde park, nice different restaurants near by. But the only negative thing is you can not book on arrival, so you have to book through one of the online booking web sites.

Stayed here for 1 night end November with two young children,9&7. Family room was downstairs near breakfast room. Decent size, clean crisp bedding, carpet looked well cleaned too. Tiny bathroom with shower but that was OK. Massive key fob, or curtain tassle! But just left key at reception when went out. Very close to Lancaster gate tube, could hear when... More

I travelled to London with my boyfriend in December for one week and we stayed at the Craven Hotel. This hotel is at a walking distance of 3 minutes to the Kensington Gardens, 5 minutes to the Lancaster underground station and 8 minutes to the Paddington underground station. There are some caffees and restaurants like Illy, KFC, Burger King and... More

The worst Hotel we have ever stayed in. The room was so small, 2 of us couldnt stand up in room together., 1 of us had to go in shower to allow other to get changed. The breakfast was cold. Never again. TV didnt work. was promised an engineer but he never arrived

This place ain't great, especially for the money they charge. £100 + for this place is shocking. As soon as you get your room key which appears to be attached to a very large piece of rope you realise that this isn't quite right. It's allowed me to develop a new rule when using hotels - never stay anywhere that... More

The hotel is very well located : near Paddington Station and Lancaster Metro. We had a very big room (for four people and we are only two), but with a very litlle bathroom. What bothered us were some flying insects and two small cockroaches found in the room. We complained and the hotel staff tried to stop the insects. They... More

Staff (reception & kitchen) was very friendly I must say, bed was very comfortable and bathroom clean (tho very small). It's OK for one night but I would not stay there more and I would not go there again. The walls are very thin, you can hear everything that is said (or done ...) next door! I had a russian... More
