“Had a great stay :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. We had a great stay on the whole. The hotel look good on the outside and was lit with green lights at night so easy to spot. The only things we could find wrong with it was that the beds were not the most comfortable and the elevator was extremely slow. We stayed in connecting rooms which shared a bathroom which was fine as we were a four party group. We liked the english breakfast which was very filling for long days we spent in the city. Loved the location. The closest tube stations were Lancaster Gate (Central Line) and Paddington station (Circle, district, bakerloo, Hammersmith and city). Very easy to get around. We easily walked to Hyde Park, Marble Arche and Oxford Circus. Restaurants were located close by and had for example a great dinner at Angus Steakhouse. I also highly recommend Vapiano's by Oxford Circus. This hotel could use some renovations as it is old fashioned but we liked it and the homey vibe it had. Good service at the front desk and people willing to help.

I had a great experience at this hotel. I was visiting London during a busy time, during the Paralympics, and Kate and the staff helped me immensely with all my changing plans and last minute hotel needs. She and the staff also helped me with all my dumb tourist questions about local attractions, electrical needs, vegetarian needs (also at breakfast, which was pretty hearty), where to change currency, etc. The location was excellent - there are a ton of budget and not-so-budget hotels in the area - and besides access to Paddington Station, the area was also convenient to Hyde and Regent's Parks, other public transit and taxis. There was a bit of noise with street improvements outside - not the hotel's fault. WiFi was good. The bar and lounge areas were a step above the usual Paddington hotel standards. But it was the staff that was the best! and all this at an EXCELLENT price point during the busiest London season in ages!

We stayed here one night while sightseeing in London. The hotel is conveniently located to Paddington station. There are lots of restaurant choices nearby. We easily walked to Hyde Park and Oxford Circus.
The room was a bit old fashioned. The bed quality was average. There was no way to control airconditioning in your own room. Although we were on the third floor and this was the "non-smoking" room, the smoke from other floors came up through the air vents. The bathroom was small and old fashioned, but the water pressure in the shower was good.
The complimentary breakfast was above average.

The Sussex Gardens area has been really updated and the outside of the Mitre House really shows its character. The hotel is a great boutique alternative to big chain, all the rooms resembling one another. Clean and very affordable, I have stayed may times at this hotel and enjoy the family like atmosphere. Rooms vary in size but are all clean and provide the necessary comforts to make them appealing. Staff are friendly and breakfast is included and appreciated. I have recommended this hotel to many friends and none have been disappointed. Enjoy!

This was the 2nd time I'd stayed at this hotel.
I'll probably be back again, the hotel is excellently placed and provides free parking, which is in short supply these days.
The hotel is half an hours brisk walk, or an affordable taxi ride, from the city and has a wide choice of Underground stations nearby.
The surrounding area has all the facilities you will need, we especially enjoyed the crack in the Sussex Arms around the corner.

Most of the staff were lovely, except for ... as mentioned previously ... one chap, called Rudie, he was abrupt to the point of ignorance, and can't be excused on the basis of cultural differences. His attitude can be enough to spoil what is otherwise an enjoyable experience in an allright, value for money, hotel in 1 of the worlds great cities. Come on Mitre House .. sort it out!

I read some of the reviews but decided it was probably going to be adequate for our needs (that is my daughter and me). Well we arrived form Beijing tired to be greeted by a rude frontdesk manager called Rudie (aptly named!). Our room was very small, stunk of cigarettes and had no Wi-Fi that operated in the rooms or hotel. I had booked the hotel because it said it had free Wi Fi in all rooms. The website describes the hotel as having "stylish and comfortable rooms." I wonder where they keep these as we certainly did not see any that fitted this description. The rooms are very small, the toilet did not flush properly, pillows were made of lumpy rubber and the final straw was the boiler blowing up (according to the guy on the front desk this happens quite often, I suggested they might consider getting it fixed properly) and there was no hot water. The up sides were that when we complained about the first room on the second day after rude Rudie had gone off shift the new woman named Kate (the woman in charge on the second day of our stay) moved us to a clean room which had intermitent Wi-Fi the next morning and apologised for the problems. The breakfast was reasonable and the staff who served us in the dinning room were pleasant. Very good bacon. I cancelled our second booking and we stayed elsewhere when we returned to London the following week.

Room Tip: If you do stay here do not stay on the top floor in a corner room - request a non smoking room
