I stayed here with work for 2 nights, and prior to my staying there I checked out the reviews here and was worried that the hotel would be awful.
When I arrive at the hotel, my initial impressions were good. Location was great, nice lobby and very clean. Staff were okay, but not great, helpful when needed but not very speedy in their roles.
When I got to my room my impressions dropped. The room is TINY. Imagine a single bed, then draw a rectangle about 2 feet out from the sides and bottom, and that's the size of the room. You cannot get into the wardrobe properly, because the side locker is in the way, it's all just too small.
The bathroom is nice, although ventilation wasn't fantastic meaning I had a very steamy room after I took a shower (the shower itself is great to be fair).
Noise from other rooms was a problem, I'm a heavy sleeper so didn't stop me sleeping, but prior to this the noise of other TVs, showers & doors closing was very audible, this could prove problematic if you are a light sleeper.
There is a TV in room, decent size and has full access to Freeview, which makes a change from other hotels, so that's a plus. Hotel is advertised as having wifi, they charge £5 per hour or £10 per 24 hours, which is extremely expensive. It also did not reach my room on the third floor, so I didn't get the chance to try and waste my money.
Ultimately it comes down to what you're looking for. The rooms are tiny, it's not very quiet but the location is superb (literally 4 minute stroll from Paddington station) and the price isn't bad. If you're looking for somewhere to just sleep, no issues with this, but don't expect a great experience either.
