If you're not planning on spending your entire vacation in the hotel room, this is a very good option. Simple room, but with small refrigerator and microwave oven so you can prepare simpler meals. Good handheld shower. The toilet doesn't get water at times if flushing repeatedly. Very friendly staff! The breakfast consist of white bread, croissants, butter, cheese spread, some selection of cereals, milk and tea/coffee. Ok if you're used to that but had to go elsewhere to avoid the white bread. Didn't try the offered English breakfast for an extra charge. Very close to Paddington station, Lancaster gate and several bus stops. I really recommend this hotel if you want a good and central place to stay in but with no extra fuzz!

Our hotel room was a 3-bed, 1-bath. This is definitely not a luxury hotel--drop off your stuff, go explore London, then pass out at night. The bathroom is about the size of an airplane bathroom, so maneuvering inside of it is difficult. The bathroom sink did not have a stopper, and has the separate hot and cold faucets, so washing your face (or washing any clothes, etc.) was difficult. The shower was very tiny, but at least the shower head was adjustable in height. The bed was not very comfortable, and the linens and blankets were questionable at best. The stairs are almost like a spiral staircase, meaning they are shorter in length towards the "center," so navigating the stairs with your luggage is very difficult due to the size of the actual step (if you have big/long feet, it's almost a hazard!). We were on the 2nd floor (3rd floor, American) and the room was fairly stuffy when we arrived so we slept with the windows open--bad move, as the windows rattled anytime there was even a slight breeze. It was very loud. There is a YMCA right across the street, and a pub and an Italian restaurant a couple doors down, so there was quite a bit of street noise. Wi-Fi was intermittent, at best. The hotel is great in terms of location (just 2 blocks from the Lancaster Gate tube stop on the Central line, near the "Italian Fountains" and Peter Pan statue in Hyde Park, and there's a great pub called The Swan just a block away on Bayswater Road), but the actual properties and amenities leave a lot to be desired.

Lets be clear - this is a small, slightly shabby hotel with no lift, no public rooms to speak of and no other facilities. I didn't try the breakfast. So why 4/5?

It's a good price for central London, it was clean, the beds were comfortable and the desk staff were very friendly. If you want more than this you will pay considerably more.

Room Tip: There was some noise from the street, maybe back rooms are quieter.

We stayed here one night and absolutely loved it! The man working the front desk was so friendly and willing to help us. Very easy to get Hyde park from the hotel as well as do some shopping on Oxford street. Free breakfast was a bit boring but it was free so can't really complain. Lots of cute places to visit all around the area. It was very posh and staying at the Oxford hotel was well worth our money! I would definitely return.

The staff was always friendly and helpful. It's a very good location near both Lancaster Gate and Paddington underground stations in central London. It's about a block from Hyde park and on a very quite street.

Room Tip: No elevator, so request higher floors for excellent stair workouts!

If all you want is a dorm room and private bath, and you don't mind walking up 5 flights of stairs (including the day you arrive with all of your luggage) and you plan on eating breakfast somewhere else, then this is the place for you!
Another family member ( single and poor) recommended this place. We are a married couple with means and were horrified. It didn't ruin our trip, but it it could have.
