This hotel is awful, the room we stayed in was dirty .skirtboards were dirty carpet torn light bulbs missing cables hanging loose. The only thing good is Paddington station. The whole of the hotel was. Mess from reception to rooms. How this hotel hasn't been inspected only knows . Never again staying here

The hotel is conveniently located next to Paddington station but has no other redeeming qualities. Dirty walls, smelly carpet and no central heating. Do not go if you have kids especially as the allergies will definitely flare up.

Not sure why this place had such bad reviews - ok, if you're after a cheap place, close to the station and somewhere to sleep while you go out and experience London, this place was fine. I stayed a total of 5 nights (3 at the beginning of my holiday, 2 at the end), and it was basic, but clean,... More

Our room was very dirty, signs of damp on the ceiling, the dirt and grime in the shower absolutely disgusting and there was no way either of us were going to use it.Our room was at the front and the noise from...

The worst hotel i ever been. Dirty, no cleaning, bad smell in the bedrooms, also bedrooms too small. Not a single positive thing to appoint except the location. Very noisy. Defenitively Avoid it! Better to pay a little more, and stay in a decent hotel.

We were shocked and sicked by how terrible this property was as we had believed the 'good' comments on tripadvisor. The comments put onto this site to say how wonderful the property was should be checked out. Maybe someone from tripadvisor should also go and check out this property. The acrid smell of stale cigarette smoke and sewerage odour coming... More

I stayed there for two nights. Booked single en-suite but they upgrade me with a double bed. Room have all basic facilities. Breakfast was continental. Best part is the location and staff. They were very helpful. If you like a short stay then this is your place as every thing is so close by and transportation is excellent.

This place is filthy. Our room stank of mould so bad we had to leave the windows wide open all night. Couldn't tell u about breakfast as we couldn't eat food in somewhere so dirty, so checked out first thing. Didn't even shower as that too was filthy. We slept on the bed in our clothes. Apart from the location... More
