We were after somewhere low budget and central and this hotel ticked both boxes so we were (wrongly it turned out) optimistic. On arrival we were given a key to a room which had not been cleaned, there were empty bottles and rubbish everywhere. After telling them about this we were given an alternative room which was better, only because... More

Oh geez, where do I start. Arrived London a day early, no availability at our originally booked hotel so found this, close to Paddington. It was so bad I burned 32K points at the newly renovated Best Western down the street for a 7x8 room. No fan, no AC, no protection on open windows, nasty carpets, old, worn out hotel.... More

Booked as birthday treat for daughter. It inspired thoughts of the film 'Taken' as we were genuinely scared. We locked our room door and lay awake most of the night in anticipation of daybreak! The reception was full of men all looking a tad serious, they remained there everytime we returned throughout the day... It was really disconcerting. Great for... More

But after these four nights I can only confirm what others said. But the location and its connection to public transport there is not much positive to find. Old and shabby rooms. Dark and... More
