Booking and arrangements were easy, the accommodation itself was clean, comfortable and well equipped and nice and quiet. It is within walking distance of Paddington Station and the reception desk will look after your bags to save carrying them around London.
On arrival at 10.30pm,the hotel had no transport to take us to our apartment for 45 mins, so the guy gave us the choice of walk or wait outside as they close at 10.40pm. We chose to walk. Flat was stinking of sour milk or something under the sink, but the office was closed. The towels were stained, and bottom of shower was all rusty. It definitely wasn't luxury and not worth the cost. I wouldn't advise anyone else to use them.
On arrival, we had to check in at another hotel 10 minute walk away. The company says it supplies a taxi, but there was none! We had to walk late at night through streets we did not know with suitcases and a very tired 11year old. First thing that struck us when we opened our room door was the awful smell, like sour milk or cheese. We tried numerous phone calls but no one answered so basically we were stuck! My bed was high at the bottom and low at the head - definitely broken. The fridge was broken, TV didn't work and the towels were stained. No cleaner came next day, towels, tea & coffee were not replenished. And ughhh... that lingering smell, it was there from when we arrived until we left!
Price is okay for this, location is good and it is comfortable for what you get. The ground floor you can hear the entry and exit of people. Read some of the other reviews, if you expect a basic accommodation you won't be disappointed. Beats staying in backpackers!
Studio apartment was exactly as expected. Great location, very quiet. However website hid in the small print that the location of the 'front desk' was a 10 minute walk away. There is nothing on the door to indicate how you contact them or directions to the office. A frustrating waste of time finding how to get to the other location.
A lovely apartment with fantastic amenities and very central to nearby train stations and attractions. Staff were very helpful and accommodating and I would definitely stay there again when I travel. Slightly noisy but not enough to keep you awake at night. Overall a very pleasant stay. Adnaan Nana South Africa
Stayed here two nights. It's about 10 min walk from station to collect key. No probs, friendly receptionist. Ordered cab to take us to apartment. We had 14 on 4th floor. Was clean and tidy. A double bed and two singles with table and chairs (no sofa). Didn't cook but kitchen was ample for short stay. Bathroom was clean but soooo hot so turned off the towel rail. Was glad of the aircon. The only negative thing was that the noise from the apartment as the flooring is marble tiles and someone thought it was funny to do a jig at 6 in the morning. Totally get the tiles near the kitchen for keeping it clean but these apartments could do with carpet to absorb the noise. Would definitely stay here again. Nice pubs nearby and a lovely Greek taverna.
Only the location is good but rest are poor. It suppose to be studio for 2 not apartment for 4. Sofa bed is not clean and bathroom is terribly small and dirty. Anyway they provide small built in kitchen. The elevator is so small. Oh and the water in toilet is not clean at all....it has brown colour and it s disgusting !!!!
We needed a place to stay after meeting friends for a meal out and we didn't fancy the rush to the train and the inevitable hassle and crush that goes with it. We discovered this little gem on Booking.com and thought it was too good to be true. The downside is that you have to collect the keys from a remote location but you get a free taxi to the apartments and we needed that. The lovely receptionist made the collection of the keys a real pleasure. The apartment we stayed in was a good location, off the main road, close to Paddington Station. Cheap as chips for two people so one can't expect much, but it was more than we expected to be honest. You can open the window after unscrewing the lock, which other guests reported that you can't. The room was small but adequate, very clean and had all the amenities you could wish for. The shower was excellent, if small. I'd stay here again.
Stayed here last night, went to pick up key cards after getting a cab from the station then told there was no free shuttle taxi for a minimum half an hour (it was 21:50) I Was not prepared to wait so left and flagged a taxi to the apartment costing £6.00, went in its nicely decorated could have had a better quality mattress very dim lighting but did the job.
