Wow. I reserved this room for one night during a July 2012 England vacation because it was close to Paddington and Marylebone stations - SO GLAD I only had it for one night. This "hotel" room was the smallest I've ever stayed in, even for a single. The door would barely swing open due to the bed and the chair. 5 flights of stairs to my room, no lift/elevator. No soap (!) or hair dryer in the room, I had to ask front desk for them & took forever to get them, I think they actually had to go to the store to buy soap. Advertised free Wifi didn't work in my top-floor room, signal too weak, I actually had to go sit on the stairwell downstairs by front desk to get it to work. Filthiest TV remote I've ever seen, I Lysoled it & still didn't want to touch it. Dirty rug on floor, hair (not mine) on phone. No hot water or water pressure in shower in AM!! No heat in room & it got cold, no extra blankets either. Very flimsy pillows, only 1 in pillowcase. Bathroom fan wouldn't turn off & I had to call front desk yet again to find out how to make it turn off. Sometime after midnight people were clopping up the stairs to rooms, yelling at the top of their lungs for other people ("Derek! Derek! Which room you in man?!") & at each other. I had to finally angrily yell out from my bed "HEY!" to get them to shut up. Breakfast was in the basement in a cramped room with no windows. All that for 85£, about $125, unbelievable. That would never fly in US for that much money, they couldn't stay in business. As I left guy at front desk said "you no worry about no wifi and no hot water, you come back again, it be better." Yeah right buddy, never.
