“A pleasant stay”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights while touring London. The prices are reasonable and the location is great - just minutes away from Paddington and Lancaster Gate underground stations. It's also only a minute walk away from Hyde Park.

We had the unfortunate luck of having a room on the very top floor (75 stairs!). If you have problems climbing stairs perhaps request a room on a lower level. Our room had four single beds, so we were expecting it to be quite small. However, we still found it spacious, with enough room for all beds, a closet, mini fridge, and microwave. It also had its own bathroom (beware, as the floor creaks very loudly).

I found the front desk staff pleasant to deal with, and the breakfast adequate (though you may want to try one of the many pubs' full English breakfasts for 6 pounds). The breakfast consisted of cereals, buns, and croissants (with selection of cream cheese and jams).

If you want a room that is dirty, no space to store luggage and very very tiny then this is your place. Staff don’t really seem to care about anything, and could care less if you have only 1 towel in your room for 3 people. Take my advice and save yourself aggravation and stay elsewhere.

We chose the hotel because of its location, (we used to live in the area so wanted to visit our old haunts), it is a couple of minutes from Earls Court tube and on the high street, there is every type of bar, restaurant and shop you need. The street it is on has a number of similar style hotels, The Oxford looked the cleanest and best maintained from the outside. The rooms are small, but you pay for square footage and location when you stay in London and this hotel is great value. The bed was comfortable, the shower effective and the room and bathroom both clean. Not much storage space but perfect for one or two nights. The staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Perfect for a cheap overnighter in Central London.

It's hardly any star hotel, rather cheap B&B, where breafast is nothing. The room was tiny with rather shabby bathroom, blanket with a huge hole and wet towels.
Breakfast is packet tea and coffee, butter and jam, breakfast room is in the basement, tiny and cannt accomodate all guests!
I also saw how "clean" bed sheets prepared to be changed were on the floor near to the room.
Never again.

Room Tip: better do not book

This hotel provides you exactly what a student group needs, a clean place to drop your bags and return to at night. We really enjoyed the kindness of the staff, the reasonable location to a tube stop, and the quirky/enjoyable stores in this neighborhood. Down the street was a wonderful cafe for breakfast. Next door you could get reasonable items of need while on your stay. Around the corner, Indian and other ethnic restaurants.

I think the people who have complained are used to Marriots and typical American-style hotels. This is a quaint, reasonably priced, and very clean hotel that is well-priced in a safe neighborhood. I was a bit nervous about our stay because of the mixed reviews and yet I have absolutely no hesitations taking my students back to this hotel in the future.

Room Tip: The hotel lacks an elevator. So, be prepared to muscle your bags up a long staircase. They do prov...
