Location, location, location. I nearly didn't check-in when I saw the disused hotel next door and the six steps to climb up with bags to get in. The tiny reception and bar didn't hep but after travelling for nearly three weeks of business meetings I just didn't have the energy to change.
Reception was quick, friendly and efficient. I was put in a basement room that had limited wifi but when I asked to be moved, the staff did so with a smile … first big tick. They moved me to the 5th floor and after the slowest lift ever (there is only one lift) I had a room to call my own. Small but clean and functional with good wifi … big tick two.
Breakfast was exceptional and I can strongly recommend their omelettes, bacon and pork sausages … big tick three. Finally their proximity to Paddington Station, Hyde Park, laundry and local pubs and restaurants were added bonuses … big tick four.
Marginally over-priced but would definitely stay again.More
