“Don't stay here”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

I paid £184.50 for 1 night (room only). I had read bad reviews but when I arrived the entrance and staff were very welcoming so I thought it couldn't be that bad. I was only staying for one night on business so I do not need luxury. However, my room was tiny. Very, very tired with a carpet covered in stains, a plug socket that had suffered a fire but the paint had a smoke mark left around the plug. There was mould in the extremely small bathroom. The window had condensation trapped between the two panes so I could not see out and the walls were dotted with marks. I could also hear every word of the ladies conversation in the room next door and I could hear every word of the TV as well. Paper thin walls. There was a black office type chair in the room which hand a handprint on the back where someone had moisturiser/talc on their hands and pulled the chair out. Why wasn't this cleaned? Such small changes could go a long way such as replacing the hotel leaflets in the room as they were so old and tatty. It just added to the room being well below expectations. If I wasn't going out for the evening or staying longer I would have definitely asked to change rooms.The staff were lovely and the bed was clean as well as the loo and sink but the room was vastly over priced and definitely not a hotel our company will use again.

I visited this lovely london hotel in 2013 and stayed there for about 5 days. the hotel was a choice based mostly on location and room prices, but it also turned out to be a wonderful stay in london. The room was quiet,very clean and well preserved and the hotel staff was kind and eager to help at any moment. The only thing that we didn't really consider reasonable was the extra charge for breakfast but it turned out not to be so much of a problem, because there were appliances in the room to make coffee and tea, and of course we could find a nice breakfast meal in any restaurant in the neighborhood.Regarding the location, it was a very convenient place to stay, just a few minuites from Marble Arch, Oxford st, many shops and restaurants, and of course right next to Hyde Park (during afternoons a walk through Hyde Park was great). London Paddington station with transportation (at a reasonable price) to London Heathrow Airport is also very close. The hotel is also located near to subway stations, bus stations and of course you can also find a taxi on bayswater rd. All in all it was, as far as I am concerned, a great hotel choice for a few days in London,reasonable prices and very good loacation. Have a nice stay and enjoy London!

There was only me staying in my double room and that was good because if there were two people in the room it would have been difficult. There was just enough room to walk around the bed, the bathroom was tiny and at 5ft 4in tall it was almost impossible to shower properly as the wall slanted in over the bath and you either banged your shoulder on the wall or got tangled in the shower curtain. If I'd have been taller or broader taking a shower wouldn't have been feasible. (ROOM 567). Breakfast was ok but the service for tea, etc was a little slow. Stayed at another corus hotel (Burnham Beeches) and really enjoyed my stay. Apart from the location this hotel however was a bit of a disappointment.

I have stayed in the corus a few times through working with work in London and everytime I dread it. On the first week a fire alarm went off every night at 3am, apparently there was a malfunction but staff did not warn guests or even explain the following day. The rooms have extremely thin walls to the point where you hear your neighbours tv over your own- not very good when you are trying to sleep at 1am and you can hear very clearly someone's tv!! Reception staff is a hit or a miss too, most are very nice and fluent English but a on occasions English has been very poor basic words like Wi-Fi was not understood. Food is ok- it's a Malaysian menu so if you don't like that type of food, you will struggle. Breakfast is ok too, only issue is you need to ask for toast meaning when it eventually comes, your food and toast is cold! I probably wouldn't recommend coming to this hotel as you leave hungry and sleep deprived :(

Arrived at the Corus Hotel for 1 night stay in the single room. Room was great except for the smell of damp but didn't feel the need to kick up a fuss.

I had a meal in the resteraunt hotel which was nice. However I had to order a prawn dish as all the chicken and lamb dishes were Halal. Again, no big deal.

The location is ideal to explore London with plenty on your door step.

A in all I got a good deal on the room with expedia and decent nights sleep.

As the title states, it's a decent hotel while you are out and about. It's located about 8 minutes by foot from Paddington Station so getting there from the Heathrow Express is easy. Underground station is a block away and black cabs are easy to find so getting around is easy.

It's not the smallest hotel room I've seen but not the largest by far. If you are just looking for a convenient located hotel while you run around London this is worth booking.

I'm attending a series of meetings in the City area of London and wanted to avoid silly prices while also seeking good accommodation and service. The Corus ticks all the boxes and there is the luxury of the park for a walk or run. I received an unsolicited upgrade to an Executive Room and this met all my expectations - King Size Bed with numerous pillows and crisp sheets, a well provided bathroom - shower pressure was good and plentiful supply of hot water. All other amenities were excellent including limited (emails & web browsing only) wi-Fi, digital TV and AC.

The Breakfast Menu is comprehensive and the service is attentive - only criticism is the stewed coffee - stick to Tea and you will be fine.

All in all - a good value location for visiting London - as demonstrated by the high number of business travellers and tourists - mostly American. Make sure you haggle when booking - I sense that the staff will offer a good deal.

Room Tip: Top floor was very quiet.
