In fairness, we only spent 5 hours in this hotel, but if you are like us, looking for a place to drop your things, or to put your feet up for a few hours during an overnight stopover in London, then this place is perfect!
We landed in the early evening on our way to Seattle and wanted to spend a fun night in London. We planned to take the Heatrow Express to Paddington, so chose this hotel, recommended by our travel agent, because of its location. The location is perfect , two minutes walk from the station.
In the end we went straight from Heathrow on a regular train and really enjoyed ourselves. We carried our overnight stuff in small backpacks and noted many tourists dragging their hand-luggage on wheels or on their backs.
We checked into the hotel at around 3.00 am and were efficiently received in the next-door hotel reception who gave us keys and directions to our room.
Our room was on the fourth floor with a private bathroom. After walking around London for hours, a few floors of stairs didn't bother us. The room was exactly what we needed - clean! The bed was terrible! Lumpy mattress of he poorest quality, probably decades old. The bathroom was about the size of a normal closet! But we managed a quick welcome hot shower and then collapsed on that bed. In the moning we virtually rolled out of bed ino Paddington, well rested and ready for our next flight.
If we were looking for more than a bare minimum hotel, this would not suffice, but then the price would skyrocket accordingly....
