“The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly .”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

A pleasant hotel, with friendly staff, a good location fairly close to Oxford Street.
The hotel was good value for money and the breakfast included in the price was reasonable, the staff were obliging and there was a good supply of toast.

I had a great stay in this hotel. It's spot on if you're not very interested in a luxury hotel, but somewhere clean and comfy to sleep. The breakfast is great, you get toast, and you can choose from a small menu, and they constantly give you more toast if you run out. We were 5 people in one room, that can be a little small, but i would recommend couples or business/solo people going here! :)

5th September 2013 The hotel was clean and comfortable with a good English breakfast include in the price. Good friendly staff. Payment on arrival was fine by me but even though the booking agents advised that the hotel would accept credit card payment, on offering to pay the hotel would not accept my Credit card. They said that the dates on it were wrong and would I pay in cash instead. I didn't have the cash to pay so I had to draw cash from my "suspect" credit card. No problem to get cash on my CC. So I went back to the hotel and asked them to try again to take CC payment. Same result cannot accept CC! In the end I used my Debit Card. Conclusion is they gave me the run around to avoid taking payment from my CC. Disgusting really! Never again!

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are quieter. Take cash to pay on arrival. Nice English breakfast.

Room was clean and spacious. Good sized bathroom. Staff were friendly. Good location, close to Paddington station and shops/bars. Reasonable price for two nights. Enjoyed my stay and would stay here again.

We stayed in a room of 5. The room had a bunk bed, which made our kids very happy.
It seems that the room has been renovated recently, the shower was really nice and up to date.
Our room was facing the street which was a bit noisy at night.
Breakfast can be improved...was served slowly, and in most cases the fried eggs were over cooked.
The location is quite good, a 15 minutes walk to oxford street, and right near Paddington station, and many bus stations, so transportation to anywhere was easy.
If the price was cheaper, it was fine but for the amount they charge you expect more.

Checked in for a weeks stay at around £180/night.

Run down, chips in the woodwork old decor.

Then I got to the room, the smallest room of any hotel I have seen in London. Paid the late cancellation penalty and checked out.

How do they continue to get away with this rubbish?

This was a nice hotel in a nice quiet part of London. It is close to Paddington mainline and underground stations and has shops nearby, The room was clean and the bed was comfortable.
The breakfast was a little small
