After reading the reviews, it is quite clear that rooms in this "hotel" differ from floor to floor. I stayed on the top - and laughed out loud when I saw the size (or, the lack of it) of my room. It's minuscule, seriously. And the stairs never seemed to end: narrow and slightly claustrophobic. As my phone did not work, I had to walk down to tell them the phone isn't working (and the TV cable had been unplugged) - not a pleasant task if you've just spent the better half of the day dragging luggage around.
No shampoo provided and it took a while to find a socket for the water boiler, but at least they had toilet paper :D And the water pressure for the shower was non-existent. Took a while to get thoroughly wet (thankfully, the little water I got was hot enough).
The staff: kind and helpful and friendly. Well above what you'd expect after seeing the premises.
Cleanliness: my room was spotless and freshly aired, so that was all good.
Stay again? If I could get a room somewhere lower, maybe. The location is above average (close to Paddington station and Marble Arch/Oxford street is just a 15 minutes walk away, as is Bayswater with all the good restaurants). And the staff is absolutely lovely.
