It was one of the worst experiences of my life. My purpose is to make known what they will encounter when staying at this hotel and then everyone will decide for whether it be left or not. Let me start with the positives. People were polite and eager to serve you in that they wanted. Finally positive. To go to... More

I stayed here for 4 nights. Did not know that there is a surcharge if paying by c/c so I went to a cash point machine and got cash to pay for my room. The hotel is in need of renovation which I was told is beginning this fall. My room was on the top floor and there is no... More

OK so we decided to stay here for a few reasons: 1. The price was right. Paid $288 per night. 2. It accommodates 3 adults and 1 child in one room. 3. Very close walk to Paddington tube station. We had read most of the reviews on Albro house prior to booking and thought it was a decent place to... More

Although the cleaning ladies/cooks were lovely and I would never visit them. The owner is too cheap to replace the flooring and you can see through the crappy flooring the mold. The air in the bathroom was so thick we had to hold our breaths when using the bathroom and kept the door shut the rest of the time. It... More

Excellent location close to Paddington station and Hyde park. Great place to use as a base to see London. The manager and his wife work very hard to ensure that the guests are very well cared for. A lovely breakfast to order can be had, though I think the 9am cut off is a bit rough on the night owls.... More

We needed a reasonable hotel convenient to Paddington for an early morning train. Sussex Gardens seemed like a quiet, safe street. Our proprietress prepared breakfast 30 min early so we could catch the train. Thanks. Our room was quiet with all the basics. I almost didn't make it up the narrow stairs to the top floor with my bags. A... More

Staffs were friendly and helpful. I booked a single room but they kindly upgraded me to a double room located at the floor, saving me from having to carry my heavy luggage (40kgs!!) upstairs. Room was basic but clean. English breakfast was good. Close to tube station, heathrow express and hyde park. I would choose this hotel again if I... More

I was greeted by the wonderful Italian owner who couldn't be more helpful with my room and bags. I loved the room with a mix of traditional English and Italian décor. It was very safe, close to local shops and only one block from the tube. The English breakfast was the best I've ever had with beautiful smoked bacon and... More
