The room smelled like dirt mixed with chemicals. The carpet had so much dust like it was never vacuumed. The shower had black stains. We talked to the receptionist and he was rude. He laughed. Of course we canceled the reservation. This place needs to be checked asap for the hygiene by professionals.

I arrived at the hotel after a tiresome journey to be kept waiting while the receptionist found my booking. Finally, when he found it, I discovered that my room was located in another building and I was told they I needed to walk up the road to book in. When I got to the other building (About 200 yards away)... More

Just spent two nights at this hotel. Booking in was ok. The receptionist first gave me a key to a room over the road but after reading reviews I asked for a room in the main building. When we got the room it was minute....a window looking right onto a wall with a bathroom that was the smallest ive ever... More

I booked the room a few weeks before as I know London will be expensive, the room was £50 for a double room, and all the reviews seemed very similar, so I was expecting an ok and out of date room. I was pleasntly surprised, the area is nice and very easy to get too, the receptionist was friendly, the... More

I wasn't expecting anything fancy but I did not expect to be sent across the road to another building that has definitely seen better days. Thankfully we were on the ground floor as there was no lift. To say the rooms are basic is an understatement. Storage space very limited and nowhere to put toiletries. Décor very old and worn...

Location is great! Near paddington underground. That's all what I needed. Safe area. Very easy to get around. Grocery shops outside. That was a plus. Customer service was good. Rooms were ok and tidy. Good for the price you pay. Would go back.

Firstly location is amazing, in the centre of Paddington, where you can find nice restaurants & great pubs. Staff were... Ok. They weren't rude, but not friendly. The complementary Continental breakfast is what you expect with free breakfast, heaps of variety for continental, great to start the day with. BUT... I have never, ever been to a hotel/hostel that has... More

Booked as part of a theatre package. Basic but clean,bathroom a little tired. Comfy bed,should have a mattress cover though. Breakfast pretty good,only criticism would be that the yogurts need to be kept chilled and not left out on the table top. Staff were helpful.

We were transferred here at the last minute after originally booking at The Bayswater Inn we found the night time receptionist very poor and unhelpful . We were directed to a room across the street on the 3rd floor. The stairs were narrow and steep and the room was very substandard.
