Pluses: Excellent location (just two blocks from Paddington station and several blocks from Hydes Park), cleaning (given the size of the bedroom, I cannot figure out how the cleaning lady was able to perform her job greatly as she did) Minuses: the room was the smallest room I stayed in my life (The queen sized bed basically occupied the whole...

In a word the room they gave us in the lower ground floor " the basement " was tiny. I had to go outside to turn around. The window opened to a brick wall and the adjacent room which we opened to get some fresh air only to find that the people in that room were smoking. The hotel is... More

Had a good stay but on checking the room rates online for that time found that we were being overcharged. Upon querying this with the front desk we found out that our 1 St night was at a charge of £500 pound. Other nights were an average of £ 100 pound a night. Upon querying why this was there was...

After we had been transferred from The Central Park Hotel which was overbooked (although we made reservation several months before to visit New Tate Modern) we were transferred to Prince William Hotel. We got a room in the basement, stifling and without the possibility of opening a window. We complained to hotel stuff immediately, but also this hotel was fully... More

my room was on second floor. Stairs Very narrow with a suitcase. The reception male difficult accent to understand, slovenly and always out front door with a cigarette. The noise from the traffic is loud 24/7. The smell of fumes from traffic is bad. The rooms are way too small and stuffy. If you have a window open you cannot... More

Visited this place last week. Very nice hotel. Small room though for three people. It said on the website that the rooms have the latest mod cons but there was no hair dryer in the room. The shower was amazing. More towels needed though in all rooms. It was very hot in London and we had to sleep with the... More
