“Decent hotel ”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

Great location, lovely area , right next to Lancaster gate and Hyde Park, also a cracking little pub is just round the corner (on the way to Lancaster gate, recommend the Swan the food is amazing, cheap and some great ales on draught. The hotel is in a great location but the rooms are small, clammy, not sound proof at all but it's fairly cheap, you get what you pay for near Hyde Park!

Any evaluation is based on initial expectations. For a family with young children where luxury is not the point, and you are at the point of resignation about the price of hotels in central London - you might find this an OK option. However, I looked for, and based on the photos posted, thought I had found a nice 3 star hotel with a clean fresh feel at a reasonable price. However, the reality was a reception that had more of a feel of an internet café, dark corridors, grubby carpets throughout, a room with furniture as pictured, but rather worse for wear and a small slit of a window not visible from most of the room. In its defence, the bathroom was clean, the shower had good pressure, the beds were comfortable. The breakfast is "good value" at £5 if all you want is scrambled eggs and bacon and toast. I am not saying don't go here. But only consider it a means to an end.

We stayed here just one night but it is a clean, efficient small hotel. Our room was compact, as they all are in London in this price range, but contained all we needed including air conditioning which is unusual in this price range. The towels were white and fluffy, the bathroom was in good condition and clean. Bed linen likewise. All in all a well run hotel in allocation within 5 minutes of Paddington station and Kensington Gardens. Added advantage is that the traffic noise is low in this location.

- Nice and clean hotel!
- Close to Hyde park.
- OK prices comparing to other hotels in this area.
- 5 min away from Lancaster Gate underground station.
- Breakfest is an additional option. You have to pay 5 or 7.50 pounds. It says 7.50 but they charged 5 for some reason)))
- They don't have fixed prices for rooms!!! Prices change almost everyday.
