Rose Park Hotel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Just home from 4 nights at Rose Park. Me and my friends had booked three rooms, my two friends got rooms six floor above me. My room under ground had a window facing a corridor. The room was small and nowhere where I could store my cabinbag. If I hanged clothes in the cabinet I couldnt open the bathroom door. There was a TV but no control. The breakfast that was included cost 7 punds across the street. The AC was a welcome but impossible to sleep with since it was noisy. The bathroom was clean though and I think that you could get hot water if you waited long enough.
- very nice location - very friendly service in the reception - it was very hard to fit three people in the three people room (no place for luggage) - The room was not very clean and basic things like a towel for the hands and enough toilet paper was missing - we were not informed that we could not keep our luggage in the hotel on our last day there after check out. We had planned a plane home in the evening but that doesn't make much sense when you have to carry suitcases around I wasn't expecting anything fancy because I know that the price was pretty fair. But still I will not be coming back to this hotel.
Modern bathroom - so I was happy. Short walk to tube/main line station, which was great after such a long day. Reading other reviews I can't understand that you would expect a large room - it's a 3 star! It was clean, friendly staff, comfortable and convenient. Be back.
Stayed here in March earlier this year. Would have returned, but it was full so stayed at a neighbouring hotel this week. The staff were excellent and friendly and the hotel was clean and very comfortable. The decor is antique-like so quite old england like. The locations is excellent to get out and explore London. I would definitely return.
The hotel has both very bad and quite ok rooms.First night we were put in a minuscule ground floor room which was very cold(in December) and with a horrible draft coming from the window( the bed was placed right in it).After complaining we received a top floor room where the air conditioning did manage to heat up the air to a decent level and with no draft, which made it possible to stay for the 7 or so nights that we had booked.That being said, room is quite small but clean, second bathroom was ok, the first one was ridiculously small.Overall with our second room I think the hotel was good value for money, given the sky high London accomodation prices.Position was quite good for its price, very close to Paddington station and with a good (and cheap) halal restaurant nearby.
After looking at the pictures on the website showing a lovely park we were dumped in the basement of the hotel. The window didn't open and air conditioning didn't work. The tv only gave radio stations, the shower was dreadful and the walls were filthy. The bed was the most uncomfortable sleep and woke up with the worse pain. Have only given a rate of 1 as i cant post a rating of 0. Don't bother with it!
My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights. We both had single rooms, and even though we weren't next door to each other, that was ok as we weren't far away. The rooms were small, which was fine for us as we only had a single room and didn't spend a lot of time there. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and you didn't have to go far for the kettle, teabags and coffee sachets! Breakfast was £5 extra pp, so we opted to have breakfast in London whilst we were out and about, although we were told it was a continental breakfast in the hotel. We were only about a 5 minute walk to the tube station, and there was plenty of newsagents, pubs and restaurants close by. The only downside (and it's not a huge problem) was that the only soap to wash our hands with in the bathroom was, what I was assuming, a dispenser of shampoo/shower gel. Other than that, I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.
I would say you get what you pay for, but you never pay for bed bugs. Within an hour of checkin in, we were already looking for vacancies at other hotels. We chose this hotel for the price and even emailed the hotel in advance slightly concerned about the mixed reviews. Our first room was stuffy and up in a high corner of the hotel. I used the stairs because the lift was too small for three people and tried to tell myself that there was no way the room could be worse than the stairs. The carpets were worn beyond levels of high-traffic wear and tear and the walls were marked up. The first night, we were nervous to sleep under our sheets. The room was also freezing. The room itself was grimy and very concerning overall. It was a terrible night sleep and we all woke up with back pain. I will give it to them, the bathrooms, although expectedly small, did seem to be recently redone. However, the shelf above the sink was placed in such a way that washing one's face was impossible without also washing one's shoes. That morning, we asked for a different room and the staff immediately relocated us to a room on the first floor that was already prepared. We were a bit confused as to why we were not just assigned that room upon arrival to the hotel. That evening, I found that I was covered in clusters of bites. They were on my chin, face, ankles and back. I voiced my concern to the man working behind the front desk and he seemed apathetic to the situation at best. Overall it was a truly terrible stay.
Pre booked at the last minute online and paid for in advance otherwise we would have walked away. Very small basement bedroom in which they had jammed a third bed. Bathroom tiny but clean. No toiletries supplied other than a shampoo dispenser. Hair dryer did not work. Food/drink stains on a wall. Carpet need cleaning. Shabby looking reception, threadbare carpets on the stairs. Miss matched and tired furnishings in the bedroom. To cap it all the air con/ heating system in our room was controlled via the reception desk. Strange All in all not good.
We stayed for 7 nights in April, when the weather was a bit cool but not downright cold. The room had no heating. So thankfully in April it was alright but we cannot imagine how it works in winter. Our room was small but clean. The walls are thin and you can hear everything from the neighbours. The location is fantastic. The staff were friendly. So overall for the very cheap price for London, it's pretty good value but it's certainly not a comfort hotel. I'd recommend this place to people who only return to the hotel to sleep at night. We got what we paid for and we were OK with it.
