Hotell close to Paddington Railwaystation and tube. Nice people in the reception. Very many stairs(77) to my room. The tinyest room I have stayed in. You have to slide sideways to sit on the toilet. The room was clean and had the aminities you need. Boiler, coffe and tea, hairdryer. It took some time for the hot water to run,...

Me and my 4 friends stayed in hotel for three nights. Even the family room can be larger this one was clean and we had enought place for all. The breakfast is good as well the staff. The only problem was tiny bathroom (supose the normal situation in London) and basement room.

Perfect location. It's just a few minutes walk from Paddington station. The twin room is quite small and shower room is tiny. Narrow stairway with no lift. I've had hard time to bring my heavy luggage upstairs. Overall acceptable for a short stay.

I stayed here for work during the time of the Brexit vote. The price was great, but the room was tiny. If you're on your own and just need a bed, toilet and shower, then go for it! There's literally no room for anything else.

Everything was fine: the breakfast although the same every day, was more than enough: warm and cold, traditional and continental with a variety of choices: beans, bacon, sausages, eggs, cheese, tomatoes, toast, fruits, butter etc. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are small but it's not an inconvenience since you are there to visit London. Situated on a...

Hotel is in a superb location - very close to Paddington station and central London. It's in a nice quiet square though and so noise wasn't an issue. We booked three rooms - two twin and one double. All of the rooms had a double and one single bed in them and so we can only assume this is the...

The hotel is strategically placed, right across the street from Paddington Station. You can get there easily from any airport and then you're ready to go anywhere in the centre of London. The lining in my room were not very well cleaned and the hotel smelled at all time of either frying or cooking or... Anyway, the prices are really...

It is a nice, small hotel, conveniently located next to the underground station. The rooms and the bathroom are very small, but clean, so if you just need a place to sleep after the whole day of sightseeing this hotel will be a good choice. Very friendly and helpful hotel staff will make the stay even better.

We have 3 young children aged 5 and twins who are 3. We brought them down to London for a short 2 day trip in Feb half term. We went to the science museum first and got a taxi to Norfolk square for about £11.00 which was so much easier than the tube with 3 tired children! The hotel receptionist...

Arrived yesterday for two nights. Fantastic location - a hop, skip and a jump to underground station and bus stop. Rooms are a little snug but scrupulously clean with new bedding and curtains. Unfortunately we were woken in the early hours of the morning by another guest talking at the top of her voice. I spoke to the receptionist this...
