We were a bit worried about some of the comments on Tripadvisor regarding this hotel, particularly about small dark rooms and rude staff.
I have to say though that we found it to be an excellent base for a short London trip. The location is really about as handy as it gets with Paddington literally around the corner and almost everything else you want within a comfortable stroll. This includes full retail torture in the form of Regent St/Oxford St or casual exercise in Hyde Park.
Staff were very polite and very keen to be helpful, indeed in the course of our stay we must have been asked if everything was OK an average of 3 times a day! We had a club room which had 3 beds, 2 windows, microwave, fridge, air con, large TV (though not a good picture), great shower and very clean bathroom generally. The public areas are particularly nicely finished and are relaxing places to sit and recover from a hectic day in town.
By booking directly with the hotel you get free breakfast which was as good as any I've had in a UK hotel, at any price.
In summary then this was a well priced, well located and very nice hotel and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in both recommending it to others and of visiting again next time we're in London.
