To call the Radnor seedy is to pay it a massive and undeserved compliment. The building's interior is in shambles. Evidence of roof leaks were in every area we entered. Walls even had stains and damaged areas.
Our room was filled with a bed with a single thin Ikea blanket, flimsy sheets, and two wafer thin pillows. Other furniture consisted of a pair of standard dining room table-style chairs. The bathroom was cramped. My knees were up against the wall while seated on the toilet. I'm 5'10. The towel rack was broken, hilariously mcguyvered to the wall with scotch tape.
The outer door to our room (perplexingly, there was an unlockable inner door,) was cheap as cheap can be. The lock was worse. The whole thing looked like a botched amateur's first attempt at a home repair. It felt exceedingly insecure.
Breakfast was strange: hard boiled eggs, corn flakes, and some other odds and ends. We never partook.
There is no distinct lobby, only an adapted dining room where a single employee always was, sitting at a folding table with a laptop. Service rendered was polite but had an air of subtle confusion whenever we interacted with anybody. The morning we checked out we awoke an employee who was curled up in a sleeping bag on the floor of the dining room/lobby.
As a whole, our stay in the Radnor (not to be confused with the Hyde Park Radnor, which is rather nice. We went there.) wasn't marked with anything flagrantly unbearable. Still, the wifi wasn't free, the building condition was appalling, and our room had no air conditioning. Also, we have a suspicion that our luggage may have been rifled through. My girlfriend is missing several items, although we can't be certain they went missing at that particular stage in our trip.
I would not stay at this hotel again.
