    The bed was very comfortable.

    The shower needed serious attention, also the towels diminished daily, i.e. 6 when we arrived, 3 bath, 3 hand, down to two bath on the last day.

    Very good staff and nice location near Paddington st.

    narrow room

    I have been to London several times and it was what I expected for an hotel in this price range and location. A good place to stay for a city trip.

  • Couple
    5.0

    The location of the hotel was very good, and the room had a working television. You couldn't really expect much more for the price that was paid.

    The room was very small, and not as shown in the pictures on the internet. The 'double' room which we booked and paid for, did not actually have a double bed in it, the bed was 3/4 size. The bathroom was also very, very small; you could barely get in it, and was also in need of refurbishment. Rather small breakfast, the portions were not at all generous!

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    The location was ideal for visiting the north and central West End of London. The TV in the room was new and could receive many channels. A lift was available to go to the top floor where our room was situated.

    The room and its en-suite bathroom needed refurbishment. Breakfasts were adequate for those wanting the full cooked breakfast but no continental breakfast available. Dining room and lobby in need of some refurbishment.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Convenient location only 5 minutes walk from Paddington tube station. English breakfast was served quickly and although it was not a generous portion it was adequate and tasty.

    The room was really too small to be used as a double, and the bed was too narrow for two people. Although the room was at the back of the hotel there was noise all night from the bathroom extractor fan that did not turn off, and in the morning you could hear everyone running up and down the stairs.

    receptionist and breakfast room lady extremely helpful and pleasant. Room basic but clean, lots of towels, spare blankets, tea, coffee. Good value for money. see my comment on trip advisor

  • Family with children
    6.6

    The hotel's location. It is only a short walk to Paddington U. Station

    The tray and tea cups were very dusty

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Clean hotel in reasonably quiet location with sufficient facilities for a 1 or 2 night stay. The breakfast staff were very pleasant and helpful.

    Only 'powder' creamer provided with the tea and coffee making facilities. I would have preferred to pay an extra £5 for the room and got real milk.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    The hotel information gives an info that there is 5% additional charge for credit card transactions. At the same time, the hotel's payment system can not differentiate the cards - so the additional charge was accounted for from debit card for a transaction as well.

  • Family with children
    4.2

    nothing other than it was close to the area we wanted to be in London. The staff were approachable and did assist with all enquiries.

    It was a tired old hotel in need of a major spruce up - bad smells in the hallways, carpets old and pulling away from the floors, furniture old and falling apart. I do not know how this hotel could rate 3 stars. We were placed in a smaller room than was booked - and it looked like a major catastrophy to have us placed in the correct room. At least the staff did fix up this error.

  • Family with children
    3.8

    The location was the best part of my stay.

    I was not impressed at all by this hotel. The Receptionist was very nice but this did not continue with the other staff. The waiting staff at breakfast were very rude and unhelpful; they would need to take a course in customer service and basic manners.The room was dusty although the bed linen was clean. It was a very basic hotel that was in need of basic maintenance.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    Staff were very pleasant and helpful

    Booking through Booked.net, it never stated that we would have to pay an extra 5% when paying by credit card

  • Family with children
    6.2

    The hotel was very close to Paddington Station and the express train from Heathrow.

    The room was not well maintained, and was in serious need of painting and care.
