We had a great holiday in the city and more memorable when we chose to stay in this hotel. We met the manager Mr. Vipan, and he assisted us throughout our stay. He managed to respond to our request and solved our little things. We are treated very excellent by the staff. Surely will come back again.

I have stayed the hotel in last week, they have provided excellent service and memorable stay. Mr Vipan was helpful during my stay and the front desk. I will recommend this hotel to my friends also. Good location also :)

A good location is the best I could say. It was cheap. Not a lot of space for a family of four and there are no towels provided. Breakfast is very basic. Cereal and toast ( which is what I like). The rooms were tidied every day which is a nice touch. One of the beds the springs had broken... More

I have about 80 nights at hotels in London a year. Always staying in the Paddington area, and within the cheap hotel standard. In my 2 years doing this in London, this is the absolute worst "hotel" I ever stayed at. Truly terrible. It's dirty, it's smells. I don't mind sharing toilets with others but when one toilet is shared... More

I have stayed in all kinds of budget places all over the world but I have never seen anything like this before. This place is hell. How on earth are the owners of this 'hotel' allowed to run it in this state - it should be closed down due to health and safety reasons (not even to mention the lack... More

Stayed here overnight when I was in London on business as I was on a budget and its location was perfect for my meetings the next day. My room was clean and tidy and the staff were friendly. Breakfast was only basic but thats all I needed. Would stay again if work made it necessary.

As we approached the hotel we were filled with hope- that didn't last. We were told we had been "upgraded" - we were 2 adults and 2 kids- the new room had a double and two singles with little space between however the stained bed covers were a telltale sign of things to come - toilet did not flush; no...

I visited this hotel last month which was recommended by a friend of mine, I was very happy with my visit; clean room, clean toilets, very friendly staff, the location is amazing, everything in a few minuets walking distance. Will defiantly be visiting again.

Great location, but you get what you paid for, and that is pretty much a roof over your head. Nothing here works that says it does in there brochure, the breakfast consists of Corn flakes (well they were in the early 90's) and cold toast (I didnt eat because i witnessed them scrap an un eaten piece onto a fresh...
