“Perfect for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

When we first arrived at the Mina House Hotel we were a bit disappointed. The Staircase that led up to the reception, and the reception itself, didn't really look that good. But as soon as we saw the hallway were the actual hotel rooms are located, we felt a relief. The Rooms are Newly refurbished with a good bathroom and a flatscreen TV. I would definitely go here again. You really get value for your money.

Just renovated, the tiny room and the relatively tiny price were a good choice for someone wanting to lay their heads after a long day touring London. A great plus is the vicinity to Paddington train station (and from there to Heathrow). The rooms were poorly equipped. Be warned there is no elevator.

Room Tip: Lower levels, as there is no elevator

Myself and my wife stayed here for two nights in July.We wanted somewhere cheap and near to transport.
This hotel was very well situated for buses,trains and tubes.
There are loads of shops nearby as well as a few pubs and places to eat.
As another review mentioned-the hotel is undergoing renovation work and the reception and stairs area were being seen to when we stayed.Our double room was quite small but all we needed was a bed,somewhere for our clothes and a shower room.The room was very tastefully decorated and modern and served our needs very well.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.All in all-a very reasonable place to stay near central London.

When we arrived first, I was very disappointed - reception areas was in bad not of updating, but soon became aware that they were updating the hotla and we stayed in a very modern, clean and adequate room. Would use again.

This was a 3 night stay and for the price, we couldn't have gotten better. The hotel was under renovations at the time we stayed (no interruption to our sleep) but we did stay in a new room which was well appointed. The only issues we could find was that it was on the small side, but it was in London, and the shower/bathroom didn't have anywhere to put your cosmetics/soap etc. On the upside, the location was wonderful. Half way between Paddington station and Notting Gate (??) tube. Restaurants of all kinds are within a quick walk. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a great value for money room which they won't be spending much time in - it is London after all!!

We stayed here for 4 nights in mid-May. They are in the process of renovation, so part of the hotel is updated, and the rest is in process. We stayed in the "new" section, which still was pretty basic, and nothing that I would consider overly nice. However, it had everything we needed - beds, bathroom w/ shower, and just enough space for our suitcases. We didn't run across anything uncleanly.

There is no elevator, so plan on carrying your luggage up steep, narrow stairs.

The front desk service was friendly and helpful.

The best part was that this hotel is situated just a couple blocks from Paddington Station which was very convenient for getting around town. It was nice being close enough to good transportation, but away from the craziness in the city center. The surrounding area is charming, close to Notting Hill and Hyde Park.

If you don't plan on spending much time in your room and just need a place to sleep and shower, then this would be a reasonable option. London is very expensive, so it may be worth it save some money.
