“January 2013”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We stayed here for two nights in January. The room was clean and cozy. The bathroom was fine. It was very near Paddington Station as well as the metro station. The staff was friendly and kept our luggage until check in time. Would stay here again without question.

Stayed January 2013, traveled as a couple

We just stay 3 nights in this hotel
It was pretty much what we expect after reading another customers reviews.
Friendly staff, tiny room, worn out... ( not three stars ) just place to sleep. good location, bus and underground near by.
So if you don´t look anything fancy and need just base to explore everything what London
can offer, it´s ok for that
btw wifi was not working... and breakfast was kind of hilarious, if you don´t pay extra for english breakfast only thing you get is toast (no topping), butter and cup of tea, yammy =)
I upload few pictures, room tv antenna was hi-tech solution, and maybe some customer stole lamp shades =)

The location is just right, not in the congestion zone but 15 mins walk to Oxford street and Hyde Park. three different Tube stations less that 10 mins away with different lines at each and Paddington Train Station 5 mins away. Added bonus was parking for a small fee for 24 hours... a rare thing for Central hotels. There is a really nice bar in the hotel and the reception desk is 24/7 with really helpful staff. The rooms were clean with a good sized en-suite; choice of blankets or quilt; full sized kettle and plenty of teabags; Full sized hair-dryer; room could be a tad small for some but it was fine for us! Will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor facing away from the road. There is a lift and it was quiet.

This hotel, along with the dozens of others like it in this neighborhood, offers a comfortable room with decent shower for a competitive rate. It was what we expected.

We wanted a basic room within short walking distance to Paddington station. That's just what what we got, and a great night's sleep as well!

Stayed here overnight for NYE. The rooms are clean, warm and secure, but terribly small - we were in a double room which had the smallest bed possible for 2 people. If your looking for a cheap one-night stay near Paddington station, this hotel is fine.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

the location is good - just steps from Paddington railway station with easy access to Heathrow airport. The hotel is located among dozen tipical hotels on Sussex Gardens street. The staff is friendly and could help you with any of your qouestions about 'what to see...where to go...where to eat". Our room was very basic, small (this is common for London hotels) but clean and rather comfortable. The only negative is there was no outside window in it, only internal window to corridor. It means that you can hear almost everything what is happening outside your room. There is no wi-fi in the room. Breakfast costs additional 5 pounds, and it's VERY basic...so, I would recommend to go outside and to get much more for your money.

Room Tip: avoid rooms with internal windows
