Really good location as we were going to a concert in Hyde Park. The room was clean, but that was pretty much all the positives. Very, very hot in the room with a fan that just moved hot air around. No lift, so lots of walking and breakfast was rather poor. I wouldn't stay again but it served a purpose!

Reserved a room with the aim to allow my friend, time to recuperate after a 26 he flight. Instead had a room at the top if the hotel, far too hot with minimal ways to cool the room. Ended up with a rather sleepless night and a less than satisfactory rest. Breakfast looked good but ended up with bad and... More

The location of this hotel in Paddington is excellent, a 3 minute walk from both Lancaster Gate Underground and Hyde Park. On arrival, a notice on the hotel door advised that the reception for the Pddington was closed and now transferred to the Westbourne Hotel across the street so guests had to go there to check in/out. On entering the... More

Room was fine. Clean which was the main thing. As others have said the main fault was the amount of stairs. Good workout though I guess. We had to check into a hotel across the street for some reason but wasn't a major hassle. Oh your breakfast cereals are way out of date. We found some from April . Bit... More

This hotel looks good on the pictures on the booking site but the reality is far from it. The outside and public areas are not welcoming, clean or in a good state of repair. The room was ok, comfy bed but on the whole poor. Good choice of tv channels, no lift or WiFi other than in lobby. Come on... More

Wished I had done some pre research on this hotel. Really not my kind of place and can't imagine why people would choose this if they were able to see realistic photos of what it's actually like inside. It's horrible. Why can't the owners just invest in some paint and tidy the place up and replace the disgusting carpets that... More

We booked a family room in this hotel for one night as it seemed like a good location for getting around London. It’s about a 5-10 minute walk from Paddington train and tube station. The hotel is on a main road, so it was a little noisy. It was also one of the few reasonably priced family rooms that had... More
