I was travellimg with my family of eight people, with my parents and in ln laws. They had alloted us rooms in the building across the road.... More

We have been accommodated in a different building then the one with the reception. The rooms are small there is no elevator and the stairs are very narrow and twisted. We liked the view from the room and the hotel is well positioned - Paddington Underground station is less then 5 minutes walk distance. The breakfast is poor in terms... More

The Alexander Hotel is not a place to stay if you expect fine dining, spa treatments and a chocolate on your pillow. It is, however, a place to stay if you don't want to sell your first born child in exchange for a decent room in London, you want a comfortable bed and good service. It is very, very close... More

We stayed for 5 days in this hotel, it is quite nice. They only have one lift which goes to the upper floors. The breakfast room and some hotelrooms are in the basement, which you can only reach by stairs. The beds are very comfortable and the room were sufficiently heated, very clean. We enjoyed our stay a lot. The... More

The lobby looks like a scene from a really bad 80's show and unfortunately it doesn't get much better from there. The staff are efficient, but uninspired and frankly, a bit bored and the rooms are pokey, outdated, but at least they are quite clean. There must be a bit of a trust issue when it comes to remote controls,... More

Like everything else in London this is quite expensive compared to the quality. But it is a great location and the staff are very friendly. Breakfast was boring but acceptable. Our room and bed was good. Check out time was too early 10.30 am

I really wasn't expecting the Ritz. I was expecting a reasonable amount of space in the bathroom. I was expecting a basic level of hygiene. The room was small, but not too bad. The bathroom, however, was so small that it was difficult to use the toilet. The shower wasn't just next to the toilet, it was practically on it.... More

Had pre-booked and paid for 8 nights. Was horrified when we arrived at hotel. Small single beds, filthy room with mould growing on carpet, shower had never been cleaned, it had black and orange mould all over the walls and floor. Hallways full of cigarette smoke (there were no smoking signs, obviously not enforced). Breakfast was the stuff of nightmares,... More
