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

Booked last minute on LateRooms.com was one of the cheapest available in that location. Around corner 5minute walk from Lancaster Gate tube. Top floor 4th floor no lift. That was tough going up and down especially in the heat as no air con. If you are unfit, or have health issues check this first with hotel. Very clean room but... More

Arriving at the Craven we were met with a polite welcome and allowed to check in early which was extremely convenient. Check in was quick and efficient and a large sign displayed the times for breakfast including a sign with traffic light system for which times were busiest which is always useful when planning the trip home (this was also...

Me and my friend booked a twin room for one night, I was expecting the room to be small but not so small that I could lie in my bed, reach out my arm and touch my friends bed!! Our room was on the top floor so we had to climb 4 or 5 flights of stairs, no chance of... More

I booked this for my teenage daughter and friend just for one night after they went to see the Libertines in Hyde Park. It was one of the cheapest hotels close to Hyde park, though not much cheaper than others closer to HP. My mistake was not to first check on tripadvisor (how bad can it be? I thought). The... More

After reading some of the other reviews on this hotel I was expecting something truly awful. What I got was OK... Stayed in room 107, was small but had everything I needed for a week on business. Room was always clean and tidy. Some things about this place we're comical, the door keys being attached to curtain ties. The height... More
