Disappointing

Razor socket did not work; no plug for sink; sink very slow draining; hot water tap falling apart. Little choice of food for breakfast if you do not want full English, just bread (toaster provided) and jam and tinned fruit.

Not what we bargained for

The pictures does not represent the standard of the avarage room. They are small, hot as a furnace - without A/C, noicy, and all seems broken down - the lift actually did so while we were there. I don't mind staying in these kind of places actually, but I do mind paying that amount of money for it - it's simply not worth it! So unless you get a good bargain and more reasonable prices - stay away!

Cheap, you get what you pay for

We had a problem when we arrived, they said our rooms were cancelled. We had to solve the problem ourselfs, the staff didn't know what to do. We were 16 people without beds, not very funny. three hours later, we got rooms, but not the ones we had asked for. All rooms haven't got windows, and the walls are probably made from paper. On the other hand, it is a good location, very close to Paddington station and a walking distance to Oxford street. Lots of restaurants nearby also.

"Standard" redefined

A standard room meant a very small basement room with a double bed in a corner and a small desk in the opposite corner. Lots of noise from upstairs. Single bed sheets overlapped across the bed.

A few missing things

Generally, it was what one would expect for the price. However, there were some issues I didn't expect. First, when I arrived, I was told that my reservation did not include breakfast. There was nothing that alerted me to this before. I didn't like the fact that there was no warning, and that the description of the deal when I first made the reservation showed that breakfast was included. Also, they didn't have a hair dryer. First time this has happened to me in a hotel. So, not a bad deal, but there are some things to be aware of. I was not very satisfied.

good for a short stay

The room was small which we expected, but was clean and in good condition. The staff were very friendly and the location near Paddington Station was awesome. Very good value for money.
