Good Hotel for the most part. Couteous staff. Rooms could be better taken care of better (More thorough cleaning required). Breakfast was limited (not buffet). Options given include english breakfast (one sausage, one egg, one rasher of bacon, a small amount of baked beans) or continental (toast, butter, jam, 2 slices of cheese), Tea or Coffee. Choice of 3 cereals.

I stayed at the Chrysos last year while on a London trip with my boyfriend, and the experience was awful. The room was tiny, but my biggest issue was the staff who absolutely rude. We went down to have breakfast and in the middle of our meal we were promptly told that breakfast time was over and we needed to... More

We were booked into this hotel for 7 nights by a travel agent. Before saying yes to it, we looked at the pictures on the website and even came to Tripadvisor to look at the reviews. I travel a great deal for my work so I know what I like in a hotel and this one didn't come close to... More

This hotel just meets the required standards for a decent stay. There could be made a lot of improvements. Wifi is only available in the lobby where it's quiet cold because of poor isolation of the windows. The breakfast is very poor, you get some slices of toast, jam into jars and butter in small packets, no fresh juice, no... More

We were looking for a hotel that was well positioned,clean and comfortable and that was exactly what we got with the Chrysos.When we stay in London,we always stay in mid range hotels as we spend so much time out and about all we need is a base but,saying that,we still want that base to be of a good standard and...

Two people, two suitcases in one room was difficult. On our 3rd day, Nickolas at the front desk provided us with a new room, two beds and more closet space. He had his staff handle relocation of suitcases. Went to Oxford after a week and returned to Chrysos, this time Nickolas provided an even larger room, 3 beds and more... More

My only explanation for the fact that other reviewers have given this hotel 5 stars is due to it's location. Literally a convenient five minute walk to Paddington Station, and close to bus routes. From there unfortunately it's all down hill... Upon arrival, the helpful chap behind the counter, helpfully watched me and my partner lug our cases up the... More
