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

We chose this hotel because of its central location but our room was very dirty, electrics (in the form if an extension cable on the wall) didn't work and the bedding was insufficient. There was no mattress cover and the sheet was so thin you could see the stripes on the mattress through the sheet. We chose not to stay... More
