I was there for three nights only but I can tell you it is a good place. The owners are lovely, always kind and they succeed to satisfy all your requests. The room and the bathroom were small but clean. They have adapters and hair dryers, you just have to ask. In the bathroom there is a shower without the... More

I stayed here as a single traveler for nearly three weeks in June 2014 (visiting someone in St. Mary's Hospital) and found it more than merely acceptable for the bargain (by London standards) price of 50 pounds a night for a single traveler. The single rooms are small but adequate (with wardrobes rather than closets, a small desk, a double... More

Nice B&B near Paddington Station (3 min walk). It's a silent area so you can rest properly. The rooms are quite small and the bathroom too, but after a long day spent walking around the city a bed is all you need. Cheap and nice

The room was small, but clean and we had everything - comfortable bed, tv, wifi, small closet, clean bathroom and hot radiator. Stuff was also very polite and welcoming and we had really good breakfast... I will definitely come here again, because of the combination of very good price and location and hotel itself are not possible to say no.

My mom and I stayed at Monopole Hotel at the end of May 2013 and had a great experience. We paid for a double room and actually received a triple room for the same price. We also had an ensuite bathroom (some rooms do not), and the only issue we had was that the shower did not have a curtain.... More

I have just spent a week at The Monopole, and it was all in all a very nice experience. As said in other reviews here, the hotel isn't new or flashy, it's a bit worn all right, but in my opinion that's actually a plus in my book. Makes it cosier. The rooms are clean and of a modest size.... More
