Great Hotel Experience

Booked a single room which was in the basement but was whisper quiet. The staff were so professional both in presentation and interaction. Small hotel but room was spotless and almost brand new. Nice relaxed experience. Hotel between 2 tube stations easy walk and Tesco is around the corner. Definitely recommend.

Booking not honoured

Had booked through Hotel many weeks previous. Arrived after 10 minute walk from Paddington Station and with arrangement to meet friends there later. On checking in reception guy mumbled "sorry maintenance" and said they would put me in sister hotel 15 minutes away. Trying to get further explanation got me nowhere. They arranged free taxi which arrived 15 mins later. I waited and watched others being checked in. Alternative hotel was ok, but tiny room and had to re-arrange friends - very incinvenient and why could I have not been text or emailed about this in advance? Verdict - bookings can't be guaranteed.

Comfortable stay

Stayed in a standard double room. Room was a little small, but if there is only 2 of you it's more than adequate, and its very clean and comfortable Staff are friendly and help you with your bags. I would stay again for the price

A bad choice

Had to move rooms because each room had different sort of issues. In the first room, telephone was not working. Location of the room was awful. Mattress was worn out. Hotel staff was very polite and helpful. We were moved to a different room next day morning. This room had a different problem, lights in part of the room was fused out and it took nearly 48 hours to fix it. By and large, our stay in the hotel was very disappointing and certainly not a value for money, except for the hotel enjoying good location being close to Paddington tube station.

Good location which is very close

Good location which is very close to Paddington Station. At check in I was advised that breakfast was not included - I specifically made sure when I booked the rooms that breakfast was included so pointed out that it was. I was then told I had been charged too much by RatesToGo and this could not be refunded. The room. I had read the reviews saying the rooms were small - I assumed this was an exaggeration. The rooms are tiny. There is approximately 12 inches between the bed and the wall at the side and bottom. If you weigh more than 80 kg you will not fit in the shower. I would not recommend this hotel unless you are extremely small. Wont be back.

Ok, so rooms are small, but so what? If you need a big room go somewhere else, if you like nice staff, free Internet connection, clean and very nice rooms (for London quality the standard is absolutely great) this is the place. I travel a lot in business and can really recommend this hotel.
