The plus points: when I told the girls on reception that I was never going to spend the night in the room they allocated me, they moved me without quibble. The new room was better; the bedlinen clean, the laminate (I think) floor spotless, and the white net curtains grey but not dirty. The kettle worked (though it was plugged in inside a cupboard on a special unit, watch out for steam) and there was an iron in the wardrobe. I didn't find hairdryer, but that doesn't mean it wasn't there, just not obvious. The minus points... The first room I was shown had a kitchen duct in front of the main window ... so you couldn't see out. As the room was on the fifth floor, I believe the staff member who told me it was an 'issue' all the way up the building 'for some people'. I take it those people are the ones who like light, quiet and don't worry too much about what might accrue between duct and window ... I don't know, it was dark when I arrived and I didn't wait to find out. The bathroom window was covered in perspex which couldn't be opened. Don't know why. The building is next door to a derelict one, which creeped me out a little bit, maybe cos the taxi driver was joking so much about the area. In daylight it didn't look so bad. I don't know what the food is like, the duct put me off everything, as did the dirt outside the window of the room I wound up in. Still, it is convenient for Paddington Station, just about. Would I stay there again? No.
