I stayed in the room for about 4 days, I had no problem at all, the bed was ok so as the shower. The localization it's good,close to underground stations and from a avenue with a lots of restaurants and food options. There was also a guy very helpful at the reception that helped me to book a taxi.

Arrived as a group of four friends in two twin rooms. My friends immediately turned around and walked straight out to stay elsewhere. My friend and I stayed. The bed was moderately comfortable, our sheets were clean. That's about all I can say about the room in a positive light, but for £80 a night in Mayfair, I suppose that... More

I cannot even begin to explain the ordeal that I experience here with my mother and 2 sisters. When we arrived, we handed over £360 in CASH, for our 2 rooms for 2 nights as we were asked to pay up front. We where shown the rooms, and the hotel was damp, smelt of smoke and was dirty and outdated.... More

The bedroom we had was a little small and parts of it could do with a coat of paint. But the breakfast was good and the location was good for Marylebone and Paddington. The en suite was clean, though the shower head could do with some limescale remover.

With paddington station just a few minutes away made our stay enjoyable. Ok the hotel is basic, but we had everything we needed and it is value for money being... More

I was given my room key by reception and was directed towards the stairs to find my room. My heart sank when I passed a communal bathroom upstairs as I was hoping to have a relaxing bath that evening. I entered my room which was dated, very cramped and had a separate 'wet room'. "At least I didn't have to... More

Thanks for taking time and writing unacceptable reviews for the hotel you stayed in. Firstly I would like to make it clear that common bathroom was not for you, was for communal use. Secondly the room which you have been allocated at first - was absolutely fine & sometimes it may happen that rooms are not cleaned so it can... More

This a very standard no frills place to stay. Small but clean rooms, working bathroom. Its a good home base as it is near many cafés, restaurants and tube stations. Within walking distance to Hyde Park. Great price for basic needs.

I have stayed for 10 days in this hotel and it was a pleasant stay. Its not a fantastic hotel, but I don't have many things to complain. The price was reasonable and the location was excellent (near several tube stations). My room and bathroom was cleaned everyday and there was free wifi everwhere in the hotel. They serve a... More

Hotel was well positioned for tube stations. We stayed in the family room it was clean , spacious,comfortable includes a microwave and fridge. No complaints would definitely stop there again as a base. Value for money.
