Myself & my girlfriend stopped here for 2 nights on the 27th January 2012, and for £75 a night bed & breakfast it was very reasonable.
The hotel looks like it's had a makeover at some point, but the finishing off leaves a lot to be desired, but for the price you pay it's relatively clean and presentable, yes the rooms are small but show me any hotel in London below a 4 star that isn't.
The hotel is on Sussex Gardens which is about a 5 minute walk to Paddington tube station so is very well located in that sense. The staff are not English but that's fine by me and were very polite and even allowed us to leave our bags in reception for 6 hours after check in.
Don't hesitate to book here if it's a room you're after to sightsee, we just used the hotel for somewhere to sleep and eat breakfast which for us was spot on!
All in all, very good for the price - If i had to make one minor comment it would be on the size of the English breakfast, it is quite small but they do offer cereals, toast and fruit salad as well so you can fill up.
My overall advice would be to book :)
