Well let me just say that the quality of the hotel could be compared to a hostel. And am actually very shocked that most rated this hotel a 4 or 5 stars?! The only positive aspect was the location, which was a short walk from Paddington station. The rest was poor.
My room was on the top floor, so that was about 5 flights of dragging my suit case. Had a teeny tiny shower in my room, and "my" toilet was 2 flights downstairs. Was a tight squeeze, with barely any room to turn around in there! Fun.
On the first night, had drunks in the court yard opposite the hotel having a good'ol time until 5am. Very amusing after being sleep deprived coming from Canada.
Room windows were from the 1800's and did not fully close, was like sleeping outside and could hear everything as though I was outside. Was drafty and kind of look like mold was on them.
All in all it sucked, would rather fork out some cash and get a decent hotel.
