This hotel is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. We arrived at the hotel only to realise we had to carry our heavy suitcases up two flights of stairs. The receptionist only offered to carry one. The reception desk was dirty smelly and tiny. The whole hotel had a really bad smell. Our room had three beds. Everything was... More

Before booking this hotel there were many bad reviews so it was with trepidation we booked it and hoped for the best. It has surpassed our expectations for a budget hotel. The location is fantastic near Paddington tube and rail.near major attractions such as Kensington palace and hide park and oxford street. Within walking distance. The sheets and towels charged...

Very good location, we were upgraded to a room for 4 from our double room, very happy with that service! Room had a shower, toilet, TV, free WiFi, a double bed and two singles. Its a cheap hotel in a good location, don't expect much and you won't be disappointed.

Stayed here as a couple for two nights in June 2014. Upon arrival we were told that check in was an hour later than advertised, and to go away and return an hour later. When we came back, we were told rather rudely that we would have to pay our £115.60 not only in cash, but with the exact change,... More

You may imagine the small room when I say that it was nearly filled half by theese two beds. From the not so easily to open... More

The room was extremely snug. 3 single beds crammed in where even one would have been a push. Shower room was OK once I'd worked out how to reverse myself in. In all - functional and within staggering distance of Paddington Station. However, where this hotel really shines is its inclusive continental breakfast. Never in my wildest dreams could have...
