For those used to the size and decor of European hotels, this is a great inexpensive place to stay in London. If you're expecting an American style and size room, then you'll be disappointed.
Our room was clean and the bathroom roomy enough. We had booked through a travel site and the only room left was a triple, but this turned out to be good because it gave us extra room for open suitcases.
There are stairs! and fairly steep ones, so don't book here if you have mobility issues, perhaps even mild ones.
The wifi works but really only in the lobby and the breakfast room.
There is an included breakfast which is a bit rudimentary (buns and croissants, cheese and jams, instant coffee and tea). Toast and hot chocolate are available, but you have to know to ask. OTOH there are several local cafes for breakfast, and Paddington station is quite close.
The location is quite good: Hyde Park is a short block away; Gloucester Road tube station is close (but is one of those tedious stations that relies on lifts/elevators); Paddington is only slightly further away, but the Bakerloo line access was closed when we were there, making getting to the West End a bit more complex than necessary.
