Very pleasant experience

Would recommend Wed, Jul 22, 2015
Hotel is in a great location, very near Paddington Tube, and in very pleasant surroundings, green and leafy area of London. Staff extremely friendly and helpful, could not fault them. Only drawback about the hotel is the size of the bathroom, it was TINY! We were in London at the beginning of July, it was extremely hot (98 degrees), and very uncomfortable, so a shower was necessary, but in such tight surroundings was almost impossible! Other than that, our stay was wonderful, and we would definitely stay there again

Room was very small for three people, but I believe this is normal for London. The hotel was very convenient to the subway/train station.

Good Value - Short Stay - Very Easy Trip to Heathrow

Would recommend Tue, Sep 23, 2014
Small, (double bed + single bed) ensuite; comfortable, English breakfast available. Good value. Clean. Less than 5 minutes from Paddington Station for Heathrow Express (15 min. to Heathrow). Plenty of good restaurants on next block. Recommend for short stay.

One step up from a hostel

Would not recommend Tue, Sep 16, 2014
I booked this hotel b/c it was our last night after traveling throughout England and Scotland. It was cheap and super close to Paddington station where we'd be catching the Heathrow Express. I didn't expect it to be as nice as to the hotel by Kensington Gardens where we'd spent the week before but I didn't expect it to be this bad. People talk about just needing a "place to sleep" but London is an exhausting city & vacations should be fun & relaxing. This hotel was neither. There was no ventilation in the room (A/C, fan, nothing) so we had to open the floor-to-ceiling window to get some air. Unfortunately this meant we had to smell the cigarette smoke from all the smokers who stood on the hotel front steps all night long. The shower had one temperature setting: scalding. Both the shower and sink drains were very slow draining so you had to keep the water pressure low. While washing my face a piece of lettuce floated up from the sink drain which was definitely off-putting. The mattress sunk down on each side so I woke up in a lumpy pit. There was a fridge and the room didn't look visibly dirty but I wished I had remembered how to look for bed bugs. Again, I suppose if you're looking for bargain accommodations this might pass but I do need to be able to sleep comfortably and properly wash myself. Never again.

Average place

Would not recommend Thu, Aug 21, 2014
Location was good for us to get to the underground tube to get to other areas of London. Room was a little cramped for 3 people and could have been cleaner but not bad for the price.

Very slow WiFi

Would not recommend Sat, May 24, 2014
Good location but very slow and unreliable internet. Not good for business use. Breakfast is five pounds extra.

Time saver

Take the Heathrow Connect instead of the Heathrow Express. Much cheaper and not much longer.
