“be very very careful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

While it looks and sounds great on the web, these are not apartment but very small rooms....if your a bloke of any size you wont be able to even sit on the toilet with out adopting a bent man act. The worst room is outside and under the road in a World War II bomb shelter....which may sound exciting but its not....full of mould, and no room to move.....its also to far into the city!

Room Tip: avoid the bomb shelter at all costs...in fact avoid the whole lot

We had to pay in advance, but we get no receipt.
In the beginning the heeting system was out of order, so the room was very hot. We tried to switch off the radiator, but anything happend. Staff was incapable to help. So we had to sleep window open the first night. On the second day the problem was repaired.
Soundproofing between room and corridor was poor.
Bed squeeked noisy.
Assortment of utensil in the kitchenette was modest, for example pans haven't lids and there was no brush for dishes.
The best point was location so near Paddington station
Our opinion is the hotel is not worth three stars.

Hey,
My first stay upon reaching London was at Dylan Paddington... i stayed here for around 4 days.
I stayed here in a studio room. I liked it.. the place was clean, spacious, beautifully decorated with a fully equipped kichenette, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is the biggest plus point, i felt.
The only problem was with the WiFi internet, given it was a basement room... i had problems with the signal..
the price is also a bit on the higher side.
but overall, i liked the place...
will recommend it, but not the basement room if uninterrupted internet is one of your requirements...

Booked on Wotif.com
I booked a week here, In June and it was last minute, a lot of places were already booked out mid week and I was on a budget after travelling a month.
I took this place as there was wifi and a self contained unit.
But on arrival no internet, in fact other guests left because of no Internet during the week before. The room as in the basement. WARNING: The walls are VERY thin. I could heard the lady next door eating chips/crips, people coming in the front door and people walking the stairs. The cleaners are not very good either. I def wouldn't be staying again or recommend especially after not receiving multipal important phone calls, and visitors. The guy at 'reception' even wanted to WRITE down my credit card numbers on paper .. Just in case. No machine. Not a good experience :(

7 flights of stairs to a room so small that my small bag only fitted in the tiny toilet.
On arrival they insisted i write my card details on a piece of scrap paper that was left on the open desk for all to see even though i had paid, he left the office door open and anyone could see them.

Shower means burn/freeze/burn/freeze and a fun game to play.

I could not get a receipt when i left as the staff don't turn up until after 9am, instead there is an emergency number on the office door but don't bother calling it as no-one answers.

After many many calls the promised receipt is still not with me.
I work in London 10 months a year so i am experienced.

on the upside it was very quiet (no traffic all night)

The first thing to note is the rooms look nothing like the pictures, they are small cramped and to be honest its hard pushed to see how they can advertise this as a hotel, its really a hostel.
I had a room on the front with a sash window which didnt close, so i may as well have slept on the pavement all night, my sink didnt drain, the TV wasnt tuned in and no one could help re-tune it.

The rooms are tiny and a joke, apartment sounds lush doesnt it, but its all smoke and mirrors, its a rip off, DONT STAY THERE.

Room Tip: I cant give you any tips apart from, Sussex Gardens is just around the corner and has some rooms of...
