We stayed 3 nights in a family room with our two children. The room was warm and clean, the staff were friendly and attentive and the location was perfect. We were within easy walking distance of Hyde Park and Marble Arch, and on several bus routes (more fun than the underground, which is also very near). The breakfast was good.... More

Myself and my parents stayed here in June 2011 and I can say it was by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was tiny, the wardrobe and safe were broken in the room, the shower was leaky and made loud noises during the night. The staff were rude and unhelpful and seemed uninterested in doing...

Great location 5 min walk from Paddington station and no more than a 30 min walk from royal Albert Hall, natural/science museums and harrods, cheap for the area, comfortable room with basic amenities. Cons.... Unprofessional staff the day receptionist... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my 19 year old daughter. Even though it stated a 2pm check-in we arrived at 12.00 and were offered 2 choices of rooms either a twin or double. We were actually given keys to both rooms so we could decide which we preferred which I thought was good of them. We chose a double... More

A pleasant hotel, with friendly staff, a good location fairly close to Oxford Street. The hotel was good value for money and the breakfast included in the price was reasonable, the staff were obliging and there was a good supply of toast.

I had a great stay in this hotel. It's spot on if you're not very interested in a luxury hotel, but somewhere clean and comfy to sleep. The breakfast is great, you get toast, and you can choose from a small menu, and they constantly give you more toast if you run out. We were 5 people in one room,... More

Payment on arrival was fine by me but even though the booking agents advised that the hotel would accept credit card payment, on offering to pay the hotel would not accept my Credit card.
