Short visit to the city.

Yep, the hotel was pretty much what I expected for the money. Everything worked, kettle, ,hairdryer, tv etc. Hot water was not consistent. Maybe to be expected at certain times but I was only brave enough to shower at evening when demand was low. I would take a room there again.

Very bad Hote staff and management (“Absolutely apalling! DO NOT STAY HERE”)

You WILL be woken up every morning by the cleaning staff standing at the base of your bed asking whether or not you are checking out today. Upon reporting this to reception the FIRST time it happened to me I was told that I was the rude one for not giving the cleaning staff a straight answer. (I refused to cooperate as I do not believe anyone has the right to walk into your room whilst sleeping just to ask if you're checking out. The rooms werent amazing. The bathroom light didnt work. The hot water was off. The controller to the tv remote didnt have batteries. The milk and coffee facilites were expired and the room stank of marijuana when we checked in. In all I would say completely avoid unless you have money to waste and wish to have a terrible time.

Great place in London/Paddington

Great place to put your head down at night and rest up for your travels. It is very basic but it gets the job done. You cannot beat the price of the hotel verses its location to Paddington station (train and subway) stations. Well worth the money.

The hotel is close to Hyde park (walking) and short bus rides to everything that is "London".

McBusted Concert

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, the room was very basic but the bathroom was lovely with a great shower. The location of the hotel is perfect and was handy for getting to and from the places we needed. It wasn't far from anywhere at all. For the room the price was expensive enough but overall I would stay here again as it was extremely handy.

expensive

God location and clean but size, quality, stuff and amenities were too low value for the price of the hotel. We had to pay 5£ per bag for leaving the luggage in the luggage room a couple of hours and when we came back for the door of the room was open so anyone could take them.

Great location, but needs some work

The hotel is conveniently located enough -- a block from Paddington Station (easy connections to Heathrow via the Express or Connect service) and half a block from the Paddington tube station. The price wasn't bad either at an average of $76/night across my 5 night stay in a single room. Those are the upsides of the place. The downsides? My room was in the annex of the hotel, so it wasn't connected to the rest of the hotel but was entered directly from an unmarked door facing the street. And my room was also facing the street, so it was quite noisy -- aside from the bus and truck traffic, the hotel is quite close to St. Mary's hospital, so you get sirens and any hour. Ear plugs helped enormously. The annex does not have an elevator so I had to literally lug my luggage to the 3rd floor (4th floor in American parlance), which was a bit of a chore. The room itself was very clean but tiny. The bathroom was a work in progress. It looks newly refurbished to the point that there was no toilet paper holder, towel rack, cup holder, or any other accoutrement. Those were, in fact, still in a box next to the sink, waiting to be installed. Also, the phone booth-like shower was not properly caulked at the bottom, so water leaked out under the glass onto the floor. I mitigated that problem by taking a "Navy shower" and using the bath mat to trap the leakage, but that wasn't really optimal. I brought the matter to the attention of the guy at reception who promised me that he would send someone up to fix the problem. That didn't happen. There was one hiccough during my stay. The staff was confused about the duration of the stay and somehow decided that I was only staying 2 nights instead of 5. So sometime before the last night of my stay, they changed the door look (which uses real keys) because they thought I had left and not returned the key. Fortunately, my stuff was still in the room and things were straightened out quickly. Still, for the money paid and in London, I didn't have higher expectations. The room was a quarter of the price I paid just prior at the Hilton London Metropole down the street and that was a special convention rate. The hotel served me well enough during my stay. For quiet, I would recommend looking at one of the many hotels on Norfolk Square about a block away. But I wouldn't have a problem staying here again if it came to that. None of the downsides were unbearable and the location and price made it easy to extend my stay in London.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Micky's Fish and Chips a block-and-a-half away on Norfolk Place is highly rated and reasonably priced. Breakfast at the very clean and bright Raffles right next door to the Ascot entrance is also inexpensive and good. 5.75 pounds for a full British breakfast (including fried bread and black pudding for those who are into that sort of thing). I enjoyed both places.
