“overnight in london”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Very friendly clean hotel. Excellent breakfast. ideal for exploring London. a stone throw from Paddington station.
Remember when staying in London and paying £50 per night don't expect the ritz.
Value for money.

Chose this hotel as it was close and convenient to Hyde Park and Marylebone station.
Situated in a very nice area, along with lots of other hotels. Good selection of local shops, restaurants and Pubs, near Paddington Station.
Hotel staff could have been more welcoming. After all, a smile doesn't cost anything.
Room was decent, a little outdated, but good value for money for a twin room with enough space for our two bicycles and luggage.
Choice of breakfast was Full English or Continental and included in the price. The staff were trying to explain what a Full English comprised of to a foreign overseas couple, being foreign themselves, they just about did an adequate job, but could have been a little more understanding.
Overall, good value for money, location and would probably stay again.

Room Tip: As we had bicycles, we were lucky to been given a room on the ground floor. There is an outside yard...

Far too expensive for what you get; no shampoo; but there was a small cake of very poor soap. Although the sheets were clean you should not look at the pillow under the case and certainly not under the sheets.
Breakfast was cold but we were told by the not at all nice girl that if we wanted hot we should have come at 7:30.
I have had far better rooms in this area for half the price.
Certainly would never go back.

27/4/13 Booked one night's accommodation in this hotel because it was close to Paddington Station - quick exit on the Heathrow Express. When we arrived we were told that our room had water damage and they had booked us into another hotel around the corner and they had already paid this other hotel and wanted me to pay before I saw where the hotel was. I refused and advised I would pay once I had seen the other room. The other room was in St David's hotel which was at the top of 3 flights of stairs and was so small that you could not open the door properly because the cupboard was in the way. We could not lay our suitcases down because there was not enough room on the floor, the bathroom was of course tiny and in a cupboard and the room decor was so old that the paint was peeling off and the one chair in the room could not be sat on because the only place there was room to put it was under the homemade shelf that the telly sat on. To add insult to injury I went back to Europa to advise that I was not happy to pay 135 pounds to stay in a dump and was told that I would need to speak to the manager who was not at work until tomorrow morning after I would have caught my train to the airport. Avoid this hotel at all costs.

We paid around £120 and got a dingy damp room with no proper lightening, the toilet was so small(2 foot by 2 foot) that one can only stand. The bed was terrible and my wife could not sleep all night.The behavior of the asian person at the reception was fully of attitude and air.I am myself an Asian but sad to see such behavior from an asian in London. Avoid this hotel at any cost.

What a dump!
We had booked a room before arriving to London, and upon arrival it wasn't ready yet; so, no problem, we left our luggage in the lobby and went out. When we returned to the hotel at night, our luggage was still there, and the guy at the desk didn't even know which room was for us.
They assigned us a room in the basement...it was dirty, the towels had strange stains, there was no soap in the bathroom, the walls were full of humidity (even near the electric plugs) and there were moths flying around (we didn't dare to look under the bed).
We notified the guy about the towels, and he brought a few more...which were dirty too! He wasn't even able to solve a basic problem like getting us a power adapter for those strange british plugs; instead of it, he told us that we should buy it in a store!
The owner (a spanish guy) and the desk guy are arrogant and don't even stare at your eyes when you talk to them, as if the hotel was a Sheraton or Four Seasons, come on!
Luckily the area around is full of hotels, so we went out, found a decent one for the same price, requested our money back (they only charged the first night) and left, because we wouldn't have spent a single night in that hole!
Avoid this place at all costs if you want to have a good time in London, don't let them ruin your stay in this wonderful city!

I have spend a weekend there on the 25Th of January, and we had a good service for our money. Of course, the rooms are" small, but the beds are good, the breakfeast is included and not bad at all.
There is one or two places in front of the hotel were you can leave your car (10£ for that service)
