Possibly up there with the worst hotels I've stayed in. The room was super small and poorly laid out so my mum and I were constantly squeezing round each other. The bathroom was horrid. I hated using it. It was a little pod about the size of a caravans bathroom. If you are large, you may not fit (not joking... More

My second stay at the Alexandra. The restrooms have undergone some much needed reno. Most importantly the rooms are quite clean, not spotless. The beds are soft. No air conditioning. Well worth the price. Recommended for those on a budget. Great location.

My 11yr old son and I arrived here after flying from perth, australia. After a 22 hr flight we had to carry 2 cases and 2 backpacks up to the second floor (4 flights of stairs) because the lift wasn't working. Had to do the reverse when checking out 3 days later. The double room we had was very small.... More

2 minute walk to either Paddington Station or Lancaster Gate. Clean and room are basic. Room size fluctuates with very little room for suitcases. Has a lift which is good for bags. Breakfast is very basic and bland

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
