due to business, i had to stay around paddigton area for a week and i've end up choosing this hotel because it was one of the best choice with a good quality/cost ratio founded while browsing booking.com -
so i've picked the Duke for my stay but i want's pleased with my move .
the service at the reception was good and i've enjoyed guides and instructions while talking to whoever was on shifts. good Personell and pretty competent.
instead i've got unlucky with the accomodation itself : infact the hotel assigned me a room at the ground floor just behind the reception which i've reckoned to be small and a bit oldish . it was indeed clean, which was the most important thing, but i always forget what it takes in uk to get a good room: money !!!
the bathroom was small and cheap : i didn't enjoy my showers and the sink was minimal and too little even to think to wash up my face. the sink was that small that even for brashing my teeth i had to get into the shower to find some room and not hurting myself while doing it.
the bed was good , firm and hard , long enough , while the curtains in the room were always closed because the view out of the window was simply awful .
I've spent around 200euros a night for a double bed room included breakfast and wifi : the signal needs to be improved while the morning breakfast was simply not good enough : the room at the basement is tiny and while it gets crowdy, becomes noisy and the entire breakarea feels small and smaller . the internationl breakfast instead is minimal and the quality was not amazing.
i hope you will get a better room the next time i show up at Dukes'.
