After seeing this hotel had been rated 3* and saw the decent (fake) photos of this hotel, when we were arrived we were beyond disappointed. So disappointed that we paid £250 extra to stay at the Westbourne Hotel which was more than delightful. I broke down into tears when entering the small, dark, musty room. The prison wash basin topped... More

Spend a few pounds more and get a proper hotel in London. The only perk was location. There is no reception. You have to go across the street to even check in. No elevator. Had 40kg of luggage that my boyfriend and I had to lug up 10 flights of stairs to get to the top floor room. Breakfast is... More

Really good location as we were going to a concert in Hyde Park. The room was clean, but that was pretty much all the positives. Very, very hot in the room with a fan that just moved hot air around. No lift, so lots of walking and breakfast was rather poor. I wouldn't stay again but it served a purpose!

Reserved a room with the aim to allow my friend, time to recuperate after a 26 he flight. Instead had a room at the top if the hotel, far too hot with minimal ways to cool the room. Ended up with a rather sleepless night and a less than satisfactory rest. Breakfast looked good but ended up with bad and... More

The location of this hotel in Paddington is excellent, a 3 minute walk from both Lancaster Gate Underground and Hyde Park. On arrival, a notice on the hotel door advised that the reception for the Pddington was closed and now transferred to the Westbourne Hotel across the street so guests had to go there to check in/out. On entering the... More

Room was fine. Clean which was the main thing. As others have said the main fault was the amount of stairs. Good workout though I guess. We had to check into a hotel across the street for some reason but wasn't a major hassle. Oh your breakfast cereals are way out of date. We found some from April . Bit... More

This hotel looks good on the pictures on the booking site but the reality is far from it. The outside and public areas are not welcoming, clean or in a good state of repair. The room was ok, comfy bed but on the whole poor. Good choice of tv channels, no lift or WiFi other than in lobby. Come on... More
