                Location is excellent!

                Room was very small ... but adequate and pleasant for a one-night stay. Would stay again if cheaper.

                Bar and lounge area and location

                Rather dated decor and very narrow corridors

              • Single
                7.0

                Room size was good in this hotel compared to other similar grade hotels I have used in the surroundings of Paddington Station. The bathroom was very clean and well serviced. And the lift did work. Out of 3 hotels I have used this week, this is the only hotel where the lift worked.

                No airconditioning system. In summer in London this is a necessity for any decent hotel. Fortunately there was a fan in the room.

                The hotel was clean and comfortable. It was ideally located for us to go shopping, attend a show and to get to wimbledon for the tennis

              • Single
                9.2

                Very pleasant staff, comfortable bed. I asked for a quiet room & got one in the rear. The shower room / toilet was a fantastic modern thing with stone walls that was absolutely surreal next to the actual room decore. I had no problem at all with the continental breakfast, there was plenty of room at 8:30am both mornings.

                There was an enormous tear in the bed cover that was ludicrously badly stitched together. The carpet on the stairs up from the room were also more worn than I've ever seen before. If you are used to typical inexpensive London hotels this stuff is fine / funny but some might be put off.

                Vicinity to public transport and good location.

                Small dining room, there was "rush hour" around 09:00 a.m. Needed to wait some 10 minutes to be seated. Staff was over-strained. Glasses for juice missing most of the time.

                Location is excellent.hotel is a beautiful 19th century building in a superb area.

                Bathroom is a bit cramped bit this is normal for a hotel in london

                Clean bathroom, good breakfast

                Horrid bed linen (stained sheets, lumpy pilllows) wallpaper peeling off walls...

                9.6

                Excellent location near Hyde Park; friendly and efficient staff; clean comfortable room.

                Nothing too bad - it could do with a bit of updating (carpets, tv) but this doesn't matter as long as the room rate reflects this.

                Location near Bayswater was good, Room simple but clean and a good size for a single. excellent value for money and would stay there again.

                8.8

                Breakfast was included in cost of room, means so much when considering budget. Nice bar for evening drink

                Room was overly hot, difficult to turn heating down

              • Older travelers
                7.0

                The best hotel within an affordable price, in the most accessible location in London.

              • Single
                5.8

                Room was clean and there was complementary tee available.TV worked.

                Hotel needs complete renovation, carpets and walls smell bad and old windows make rooms noisy. Why have 2 people at the reception when none of them is able to recommend any restaurants nearby?

                One tube stop from Paddington station & a short walk from Bayswater underground station. The hotel has a decent amount of lounge space & a bar. The hotel is a short walk from a large selection of shops & restaurants & the Whiteleys shopping centre. Despite being -1c outside, room 418 was a warm 21 to 22c. Good size single room (6ft 10 x 16ft 3) & toilet/basin/shower room (6ft 2 x 3ft 3). Room & area were quiet. 22- inch widescreen Hungarian Samsung lcd tv with terrestrial & digital tv and radio.

                Continental breakfast seems penny-pinching, especially as there's a big selection of cereals, bread, yoghurt, ham, cheese, etc.. Would it be more expensive to provide inclusive full-English buffet breakfast (it's available at extra cost)?

                I liked the appearance of the public rooms. The staff at reception were on the ball.

                The room looked dreary after the light of the day had gone.I would have loved tea/coffee making acilities in the room.
