“Convenient location. Comfy but very dated facilities.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2010

Room furnishings & fixtures from the 1970s, but comfortable. Separate bathroom was behind a thin wall next to the room but luckily no-one else used it while I was asleep. Very reasonably priced.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2009

We got a twin room at £40 per night for the room, an excellent price and a five minute walk from Paddington Station and the Bayswater Underground. There is a bar next door but there are others in the local area that are just as nice. God amount of take aways and coffee shops. There is also an internet cafe round the corner and many of the cafes have WIFI while the hotel does not. Kensington Gardens is within walking distance which was nice in the evening and the street itself isn't too busy, considering it's quite central.

The room was clean, though the decor is old fashioned, gloomy with torn wall paper. As stated elsewhere the shower was freezing, which wasn't great and there was no light in the toilet at one point, to be fair this was quickly fixed. Generally tere wasn't much spae ut we were expecting that. The walls are quite thin and we could easily hear next door but as we had quiet neighbours this wasn't an issue. No reception on TV which looked about 25 years old. I wouldn't want to stay for any longer than a couple of nights but I have no real complaints about the actual hotel because we got a clean room in a good location at a fantastic price.

The only thing I would complain about is the maner of the young reception at the desk incredibly rude. It was the same girl we spoke to on arrival and departure and she acted with utter disdain, rolled her eyes, was very abrupt and looked as if her face would crack if attempted to smile. We didn't ask any questions or make any complaints just checked in and out. I know this was cheap accomodation but her colleague was treating other customers with good maners and she could have done the same thing. I rarely make personal comments about people in the service industry because I work in it myself and know how horriblet it can be but she had no reason to be so unpleasant with us and to be honest was the rudest person we met on the entire trip

Small room with bed, TV, sink, wardrobe and bedside cabinet. Kettle and coffee / tea. Surprisingly quiet at the back. Bar available in hotel next door. Breakfast available - but cheaper options in cafes roundabout - I can vouch for Luigi's in Spring Street. Staff friendly and helpful. Reasonable price £35 for a single. Handy for publ;ic transport (tube, bus and mainline rail services) and also an easy walk to central London.

Great location - a short walk from the city. Great value for money - I paid 55 pounds for one night. Rooms are fine - nothing flash. Recommend it if you are looking a well located, value for money spot.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2008

Just what one would expect for a cheap hotel in the middle of London. Oddly, though I had the chance to see two rooms. When I first arrived my room was #3 a tiny room with two twin beds, a shower and sink in the room and a toilet outside of the room but inside an unlockable door marked "private". This was fine with me, although I booked a single room with facilities in the room. Off I went to enjoy a walk around Hyde Park only 5 minutes away. When I returned, they had moved my luggage to room #5 for a reason they did not explain. This room had a double bed and a twin bed with shower, bath and toilet all in a room within the hotel room. Both rooms were cozy, clean, old, and typical. The staff was as good as they needed to be. Would recommend to a friend and indeed did to my friend visiting from Holland who enjoyed her stay as well.

Clean room, good bed, windows open onto quiet street, not too noisy at night considering location. One shower between 7 rooms is really not adequate and it was cold in the morning. Breakfast okay if you like deep fried eggs, lukewarm beans and burnt then scraped toast. Nice staff. Toilets not so nice.
