The hotel was nice, typical english style, with ordinary english breakfast. A nice garden outside the hotel.
2 minutes walk to Paddington station.
15 minutes walk to Notting Hill and Portobello road.
10 minutes walk to Hyde park.
This hotel can be recomanded! :)

On the first day, we noticed the bathroom was unclean, especially the shower. When we complaint, one of the recepcionists yelled at us and was very unpolite.
We slept the 4 nights in the same sheets and when a friend of mine poured some tea in her sheet, they turned it upside down to hide the stain. We expected more from a 4 stars hotel.
Some members of the staff showed little iniciative to solve problems and were not very helpful, except for Joanna. She was kind and helped us a lot. If it was not for her, our stay here would have been very unpleasant.

Stayed here on a Saturday night with a group of 5 people. We had two rooms between us, a twin and a triple. We wanted somewhere quite central and not too pricey.

I wasn't expecting much from the hotel as it was relatively cheap, (£169 for a triple room). On arrival we were greeted well by reception. My room (the triple) had a double bed with a single in it. It was a good size and nice and clean. The bathroom was also to a good standard and included shampoo and shower gels. There was a safe, a hairdryer and a fan in the room too.

The location of the hotel is great. Less than 5 minutes from Paddington tube station and seemed to be in a quiet area. It cost us £25 in a taxi from Piccadilly between the five of us at the end of the night.

Breakfast was served between 8:30 and 10:30. There was a selection of cereals, fruits and yogurts and also self service cooked breakfast which was good.

The hotel is a little dated but nice and clean, great location. It's not exactly luxurious but definitely a step up from a Travelodge! Would definitely stay here again.

We arrived early but were able to leave our suitcases at reception. At the time the lift did not work but we were upgraded to a great room. Clean, tidy, staff very helpful and we enjoyed three days being in the right locationfor all the tourist spots. The hop on and hop off bus for touring was around the corner.
The breakfast was GREAT!!! It was a wonderful way to start the day but I do reccommend to go in early as it gets busy.
Organised a taxi for us when leaving and very courteous staff.
Firs time in London.

This hotel is located a couple blocks from Hyde Park and a few blocks from Paddington Station. Since we arrived early in the day, our room wasn't ready but Mr. Witek was really helpful and gave us a great tip to take the Super Tour Bus on-off for the day until our room was ready. Our room for three people was large enough but the room was very loud with the sound of running water throughout the night. Fine place for a few days but would have to check other rooms if we would stay for longer.

Room Tip: Room for three people has three twin beds.

Arrived on a very rainy day. I was too early to book in but the staff were very helpful and offered me the use of their facilities to dry and change.

I was meeting a friend at the hotel so had a couple of hours before they arrived. I returned around 2pm and was able to get into the room early, which is when I discovered there is no air conditioning! The room was very warm and there was no outside window - our room overlooked a corridor on the side of the hotel.

However, the room was very clean, well maintained and adequate for our needs. It is still a shame that more hotels are not accepting that guests of a 4*+ hotel would expect free wi-fi as standard.

We did attend breakfast on the first morning and although it was only the continental choice it was satisfactory. My only observation would be the size of the room does not accomodate the number of guests very well and staff seem to be rushed off their feet. The toast arrived at our table cold and when we were leaving! However, the staff were very friendly and seemed to be working hard to attend to everyones needs. Why not leave tea and coffee available for guests to help themselves, it would save your staff so much time.

We did ask for a change of room because the lack of air con was making our room pretty unbearable, although we were out most of the day and left the fan running all day it was still pretty warm when we got back. The receptionist was very helpful and said she would see what she could do but unfortuanately it was a busy weekend and any available rooms were in the basement or were on the same side as our existing room. However, we came back to the room after a day out and found an additional fan in the room which did alleviate the problem a little.

The hotel is very well situated and is literally "up the road" from Paddington and is very easy to find. Access to the tube, station and bus stops are excellent.

In summary, this is a great hotel for a short trip and when it isnt too warm! Staff are friendly, hotel clean and well maintained.

I would recommend this hotel to others.
