On the plus side: The location was perfect, close to the tube station and good restaurants; room was small but very clean with modern bathroom and great shower; bed was really comfortable, the room also had a TV and tea making facilities (although plug sockets were in inconvenient places); towels and toiletries provided; helpful and friendly reception staff; quiet area...

Extremely small rooms, everywhere smell of cheap detergent. The window barely closes. Lightbulbs broken and bathroom locked for the outside so that I was assigned a different room. The only pro is the the good location. Definitely 0 stars.

If your not good with stairs avoid as there are lots and no lifts. A descent breakfast but no full English available. One minor winge... They req a £100 deposit in case of...

The rooms are small but that's perfectly fine because you'll just sleep here. It was clean which was the most important thing for us. The bathroom was small but renovated and clean. The location is great, right across the street from the underground station. I'd stay here again.

We just checked out from the So Paddington after spending 4 nights there. The hotel is a bit tired and could do with a wee bit of refurb, a new water system ( you WILL hear the pipes) and a lift, but the location is great - 2 mins from the station, and the staff has been really good to...

Firstly I was asked for photo ID when I checked in (I don't drive so don't have a licence and don't tend to carry around my passport for fun). I had already paid for the room online, but as 'verification' they took a photocopy of my debit card, which strikes me as dodgy. My room was on the 4th floor...

The rooms were super small. The entire room including bathroom is less than twice the size of the bed. There is no space for luggage to lay flat. Bathroom was disgusting. Toilet seat was unhinged and crooked, the shower was disgusting and looks like it's never been cleaned. Red bloody smears and hairs lined the shower which isn't big enough....

Not really a hotel I would like to stay much longer. Standard is poor and our room was really really small and TV was broken. Area around the hotel is great , nice pub (Sawyer's arms just a few steps away). Would recommend not to have breakfast in the hotel, but in the little café next to the pub, it's...

Do not book this hotel. Their customer service is non-existent. The rooms are too tiny for more than one person. The bathrooms are small and moldy. There is NO HOT water. The only redeeming quality about this hotel is its proximity to Hyde Park and Paddington Station. A one star is generous, but TripAdvisor does not allow a zero or...

Just checked out this morning. The room was very small and very warm...however it was clean and comfortable. It is very central to everything with lots of nice restaurants to suit most budgets...the tube, Paddington station, supermarkets and pharmacies very near. If you are looking for an early night sleep don't expect to sleep early...a lot of street noise from...
