“Perfect base for London”
Reviewed 6 September 2010

The hotel was a great find. It is an excellent location in London, just a short distance from Kensington and Notting Hill. The rooms were well appointed and very spacious. Check-in was quick and we elected for a smoking room after considering whether it would have a stale smell to the room, it didn't. Being so central there is a bit of noise but nothing to complain about. There were large comfortable beds and good showers. The room service options seemed a little pricey (breakfast in particular) and the heating was a little on the week side, but we are only just coming out of summer. Finally a warning !!the mini bar fridge is automatic. If you pick up a bottle to look at it you have inadvertently added it to your bill!!

You just can't beat the location if you are in London on your way somewhere else - there is the easy, 15 minute express train from Heathrow and you enter the hotel from the train station. The hotel is pleasant enough and has all the business-travel-basics: spartan workout room, business center, Starbucks. It was a fairly easy walk to Kensington Gardens and a touristy neighborhood, which would be expected given the central train station there.

The room was very large, especially based on my experience of European hotels. Overall, it was an excellent option for my business trip but when I go back as a tourist I'll probably find somewhere more quaint in a more interesting neighborhood.

This was an above average hotel, but this should be expected for the quite expensive room rates. The location was excellent, right next to the Heathrow express. The subway entrance was directly across the street from the front entrance. The room I had on the 4th floor was quite nice, and extremely quiet. I could not hear any street noise as others have complained about. The room was clean, the bathroom large, and it had plenty of hot water. The breakfast was included in our room rate and was excellent as well. My big complaint was the lack of free internet....they wanted 15 pounds a day, which is expensive for this American, who gets it free at most hotels here. Overall, I was pleased with the hotel and would recommend to others. Especially if you get a reasonable price!

Love the location. We landed in heathrow and took a train from paddington the next AM so it was perfect for this. The room was clean and nice. No view but not surprised. It was a little on the expensive side for the quality and size of the room but London overall is a little bit pricier. Breakfast was good. Never went to the bar so cant comment on that.
Would stay here again.

Stay here last week for 2 nights in 2 rooms-executive level. Well worth the extra money. The executive lounge staff were charming. One of our rooms had a musky smell. The front desk moved us the next day to a better room. Explanation was that the carpets were just shampooed,I can buy that.Never went near the restaurant or lounge as our drinks were free. Also, the exec lounge had free internet and interesting people. I thought the location was great. The train station is worth exploring. We walked to Hyde Park , Marble Arch , etc. No complaints....

This hotel was my life saver. After being stranded in Geneva airport with my four year old, for hours as our flight had been cancelled, we ended up getting a flight to London and then a train home the next day. My daughter and I stayed here at the last minute as it was basically IN Paddington. We arrived late and exhausted and the check in staff were wonderful, they took our bags, up graded us to a suite, nothing was too much trouble. The suite itself was gorgeous, spotlessly clean. We treated ourselves to room service breakfast which was stunning. I would like to go back for a proper stay, what a gem of a hotel with fantastic staff.

Hotel is very nice. Clean and quiet. It is connected to the Paddington train station and underground station, so the location is very convenient.
