We stayed here for 3 nights, room very dated, although bedding very clean, fresh towels every day.. Room on ground floor, at front of hotel, can be noisy as traffic goes by.. Breakfast was awful, the scrambled egg was watery and tasteless.. Not much choice at all.. We ended up just having toast and yogurt, plenty tea and coffee offered..... More

Really Wishing I'd checked TripAdvisor before booking this hotel, I booked through a theatre package website and really wished I'd gone for the much cheaper Travelodge option, I was treating my wife to a nice weekend away for her birthday and thought that this place might be nicer given that it was more expensive!! Good points were location and friendliness... More

The room felt bigger due to high ceiling. Great access to Paddington Station and Lancaster Gate Station. Hyde Park is just minutes away. Great services by the hotel staff. Breakfast included. Option for further discount with 'crystal1' promo code.

Great location, close to Paddington station (with express train to Heathrow) and Hyde Park. It's a old building, so creaky floorboards and entertainingly mysterious plumbing are part of the charm, but a very comfortable bed, great breakfast and friendly staff made this a lovely stay. I managed to walk to all the museums and tourist attractions I wanted to see... More

During my first visit, I was put in a basement room, having booked a single room. Yes, it was rather small, but I had two single... More
