Nice clean hotel in an old large Victorian terrace. Right around the corner from Paddington station - literally a 5 minute walk. So handy for the tube and mainline station. We took cab's most of the time to Convent garden & Oxford street, between £15 & £20 a go. The room was very comfortable, lovely bed and all the facilities you would expect. WiFi is free with a password, but not every room gets access. Public areas are just fine. The rooms are small, we had a double and single for the 3 of us, all fine, but you have to plan your move around the room if you know what I mean. 2nd day we got back housekeeping had made the beds and taken the towels, but not replaced them, or the tea facilities. This problem was soon sorted out to be fair. We had breakfast, which was adequate but used all of the cheap cuts of bacon and sausage, and the tea was even cheaper. It fueled you for the day, but hardly a 'great' breakfast. we had one nightcap in the bar, which is tiny and had zero atmosphere. Things I didn't like was that our room was in the basement, a dodgy window opened into a basement area, just (it seems) by the steps the staff use by the kitchen, so at 3am when they are out having a cigarette and a good old chat at full volume we woke to hear everything - but I don't understand their native language. The hotel is near St Mary's hospital and I think a police station as we heard all kinds of sirens at all times of the day. In Summary, not a bad hotel, the staff were helpful etc and it was fine for us as a base. But if you wanted a hotel to relax in you might find better relaxation to be had elsewhere.
