Almost all the hotels in the Paddington area are old, ratty, refurbished row houses, one expects that. On the up side the location is good (easy walk to Portobello street and several metro stations, about a 15 minute walk to Paddington Station and the Heathrow Express), and the staff was fine, if a bit harried. The elevator barely works. My bathroom smelled of mildew and was average for the area (i.e. tiny but useable). I was there on business, but they had no wireless internet and I was forced to use dodgy 3rd party internet services. TV remote required a 10 pound deposit. In my case the price was good and it wasn't too much worse than any other place, but the lack of internet will force me to stay elsewhere next time.
DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL. THERE ARE RATS! This is a converted apartment building built around WWII. The carpets smell, the rats are more friendly than the staff. The plumbing smells. The shower is not big enough for one person. Mildew on the shower curtains. Stains all over the mattress and sheets. The beds are military bunkbeds with paper-thin mattresses with the springs sticking out. They lied about the free airport shuttle services. They charge you for this service and they tell you when they will pick you up, you do not get to pick the time. We had to get up at 4:00am to be ready for a 5:00am shuttle for a flight leaving at 10:00am.
We had a basement room with bars on the windows and a great view of the trash cans. Also heard the two-person elevator motor all night. No clock, no kleenex, no washcloths or hand towels. For 10 pounds (refundable) you could have the room's TV remote. Bathroom so small you stepped back from the sink and could fall in the shower. Very dark. No A/C. Breakfast was included and adequate and the rooms were clean. Won't stay there again. Not a close walk to Paddington Station as advertised. Had a really hard time finding the hotel.
The hotel was terrible. Dirty rooms, dirty "restaurant", awful breakfast (toast + jam + milk). I know that this is cheap hotel so I didn't expect 5*, but I expected CLEAN hotel. Unfortunately this one wasn't clean. Bed clothes weren't changed after previous guests! On pillows we found someone's nose mucus! AWFUL!!!! A spoon (just one in double room) looked like someone licked it! Beds looked like on camping (fold beds) with really old and dirty mattress. Summarizing - I didn't expect much, but I expected clean room - that's it and I missed it. If you can accept that your rooms won't be clean, wasn't cleaned up after previous guests than go to the hotel in other situations stay far away!
Rooms very small but ok if you just want to sleep. Tiny bathrooms, but was quiet in hotel. Lift could only hold 2 people with 1 medium suitcase each. But not too far from underground, plenty of restaurants around the area. Seemed to be very safe area, didn't return until 10.30pm no problems with people walking around.
