Budget hotel with inflated price. Room small and cramped with cupboard sized shower. Steep steps from street level and down to breakfast room. Not suitable for disabled guests. Asked to pay for room in advance before seeing the room.

Had an amazing week long stay, so close to great places to eat, friendly happy staff who were very helpful while i was looking for tours and non tours, the place was clean and the breakfast was delicious, easy to get to from Paddington Station, so for me it was easy Airport access. looking forward to my next visit.

It's safe to say this isn't one of the greatest hotels and there are definitely pros and cons to this B&B. From the outside you can tell it's made up of 3 townhouses and looks fairly impressive. The reception had been all done up and looked really modern so I was expecting the rest of the hotel to reflect this...

Safe to say it's one of the best budget hotels in the area. I have stayed there many times over the years and have never been disappointed. It has recently gone through a refurbishment and breakfast buffet is included. Some of the rooms are a bit small though.

Box size room used as double bedroom with absolutely no space to move around. Smallest possible bathroom with shower fitted in under stairwell. Shower head and shower control at or below eye level - health and safety issue here. Only point in favour was that it was clean. Wifi abysmal despite claim of super fast broadband, and breakfast adequate despite...

Friendly reception staff. Rooms well appointed. Tiny bathrooms. Breakfast not inspiring and the room very cramped and hot if the hotel descends on it all once which happened one morning. Wifi worked well. What made the difference for me was its location which is a 2min walk from Paddington station and the therefore value for money. Would stay again.

Hotell close to Paddington Railwaystation and tube. Nice people in the reception. Very many stairs(77) to my room. The tinyest room I have stayed in. You have to slide sideways to sit on the toilet. The room was clean and had the aminities you need. Boiler, coffe and tea, hairdryer. It took some time for the hot water to run,...

Me and my 4 friends stayed in hotel for three nights. Even the family room can be larger this one was clean and we had enought place for all. The breakfast is good as well the staff. The only problem was tiny bathroom (supose the normal situation in London) and basement room.
