Check in here was a breeze, and our room was very nice. It's in a great location, and the price was right. Breakfast was VERY good, and the staff in the restaurant downstairs was very friendly. When it was time to check out, the front desk was kind enough to watch our luggage while we saw a couple more sights...

Whilst we were really happy with the location of this place it just didnt do it for us. The staff quite abrupt and almost unfriendly,exept for the couple of ladies in the breakfast room who were really friendly. Probably wouldnt stay there again,it wasnt that bad just something missing.

We stayed for two nights in room 3, which, as we found out after the first night, is directly underneath the reception area. On the first night we were kept awake by thumping and dragging noises till about 12:30 am, and the next day we complained to the staff at the front desk. The staff assured us that the previous...

Stayed here before and after a Heathrow flight. It's a good small hotel. Clean and comfortable with helpful staff. The breakfast is excellent and served with a smile. For London, this is a well priced hotel. Great location. Five minutes: Hyde Park one way, Paddington the other. Definitely one to use again.

Convenient location---a short walk from Paddington Station and many pubs/restaurants/shops. Spacious, immaculate room. Generous breakfast included---Full English and/or Continental. Only downside...very, very firm bed. Would definitely stay here again next time we're in London.

It was actually two...
