As others have said, there are a lot of steep stairs in the hotel. The carpets on the stairs have seen better days. We did get a warm welcome and a comfortable compact room with a fridge and a safe. But for the price where else will you find such a bargain with a continental breakfast as well.

We stayed one night here during a long layover on the way back to USA from India. The rooms are quite small, but the linens and bathrooms clean, the room and facility tidy. Plenty of hot water, and we enjoyed a quiet walk in the nearby park in the morning before heading out to our flight. Free breakfast was adequate... More

We have just stayed here for two nights and other than the friendly staff and the location this hotel doesn't have much going for it. We were on the third floor (6 flights of stairs) rooms were shabby, really old blankets on the beds that need replacing and a window that appeared to let wind in even when closed! Place... More

tiny tiny tiny room... I was expecting the Paddington Bear to show up and claim it was his room! The location is really convenient, but I would not stay here for long stay. You shouldn't stay here if you don't like small environment.

This was a good budget hotel in London - the rooms were spacious but dated, the bathrooms were small but clean. There is no lift so be prepared to walk up and down stairs. Although it only advertises free wifi in the hotel lobby, we were able to access the wifi in our room on the 3rd floor. The reception... More

A budget hotel in a great location, 5 minutes from paddington station. Rooms where pretty good bad on the bad side it was the lack of elevator and that there wasn't wifi in the rooms! Also it was a bit expensive for what you get but a good price for London!

My husband and I stayed in room 207. The location is great. Two blocks to the Lancaster Gate Underground station, and about a 5 minute walk to Paddington Station. The employees were helpful (directions,etc) and friendly and the continental breakfast is just what you would expect. The hotel is shabby. Our room was very small with a bathroom barely larger...
