I don't work for any grading council, but this hotel is certainly not worthy of three stars. The rooms are small, the shower is small and the heating in my room did not work, no blankets were provided. The hotel is tired and run down, in dire need of refurbishment. My mattress' was at least 50 years old with springs...

An appallingly shabby and tired hotel that is in desperate need of refurbishment. The dingy room I was given on the fourth floor was tiny and not particularly clean. Even though I had paid up front they had the gall to ask for £100 deposit!!! In case I damaged anything!!! Is this even legal? And the place was falling apart!...

On the plus side: The location was perfect, close to the tube station and good restaurants; room was small but very clean with modern bathroom and great shower; bed was really comfortable, the room also had a TV and tea making facilities (although plug sockets were in inconvenient places); towels and toiletries provided; helpful and friendly reception staff; quiet area...

Extremely small rooms, everywhere smell of cheap detergent. The window barely closes. Lightbulbs broken and bathroom locked for the outside so that I was assigned a different room. The only pro is the the good location. Definitely 0 stars.

The rooms are small but that's perfectly fine because you'll just sleep here. It was clean which was the most important thing for us. The bathroom was small but renovated and clean. The location is great, right across the street from the underground station. I'd stay here again.

We just checked out from the So Paddington after spending 4 nights there. The hotel is a bit tired and could do with a wee bit of refurb, a new water system ( you WILL hear the pipes) and a lift, but the location is great - 2 mins from the station, and the staff has been really good to...
