    The only positives for this hotel is the location and proximity to the Underground metro.

    This hotel is at best a 1 star hotel with very small rooms and dilapidated amenities. Heaters don't work and if they do turn on it sets off the fire alarms. The floor is dirty and the sheets have seen better days many years ago. The closet for a 5 person room is completely inadequate and the bathroom was moldy and the toilet permanently stained. The breakfast is the same everyday and at time we were served moldy bread and watered down orange juice that also tasted a bit rancid.

    The location but there is many better hotels just next to it

    The hotel is bad bad bad. It doesn't worse a penny of what we paid... I regret choosing the hotel. Lady at the reception dull but can say polite but the other 2 men has no customer service what so ever asked them to guide us about city attractions they gave us a face like we don't know. Next day for breakfast it was owfull another lady who are serving the breakfast was tough and shouting around although there was 2 nice girls, food was 2 eggs, sausage and beens thats it..only one kind of juice cereal in a plastic box not a standard hotel breakfast. Regardless to all this the room is very old and the toilet was disgusting I couldn't take shower for 3 days and hardly goes to the toilet..the smell of the paint was too much while passing though the corridors.. I would never recommend it to anyone..it doesn't worse a 330 pounds for 2 nights by any mean.

    The hotel had a good location near Paddington station and if yoy wanted you could walk to OXford street using 15 minutes. There were pubs and restaurants nearby. The hotel was clean (no carpets in the hotel room) and inviting. It was quiet even the hotel was filled with teenagers. The breakfast was good.

    The rooms were really small. The doublebed was at max 120cm wide and there was no floorspace. I would say this was a singleroom made in to a doubleroom.

    Good location.

    Trash can was full of garbage. Dirty blanket with a hole. No shampoo. No phone. disproportionate price in relation to other hotels . Demanded an additional 5% on the internet price for credit card payment. Every step of the customers over us made terrible squeaking noise and waked from sleep . We asked reception to call a taxi to the airport and to our surprise we paid £ 15!!! more than the taxi price without .informing us

    Superb

    Travelling with a young family and having mobility issues myself this hotel ticked all of our boxes, the staff were some of the most pleasant and helpful people that we could of hoped to meet. Breakfast could do with a revamp, a small increase in room rate and a larger breakfast would have been most acceptable, however the breakfast as was, was well cooked and well presented. All in all thankyou for a comfortable weekend, and the offer to keep my luggage in storage till we had finished a days sight seeing, (after check out) made all the differance

    It is being near to the Paddington Rail and underground station makes it easy for Heathrow connection and travelling pn London. Staff is friendly.

    The room I stayed was very small and it was not very comfortable. The towels and the room could be cleaner. When compared with the similar hotels nearby, it was expensive. I checked the rates of similar hotels on Sussex Gardens and compared the room quality with the rate they ask.

    Location, nice bathroom, convenient location, decent bed and breakfast for a quick stay.

    Front office staff needs to know more about London - transport and times attractions open. Bedspread a littel dirty.

    Shops were close and train station was close Bathroom was modern.

    We kept finding hair in our room and beds and even our food!!! Staff were moody and made us feel unwelcome. Duvets covers were worn and ragged. Would never stay again.

    Hotel Location

    They mislead by saying on the phone that will be a parking space arranged at the hotel for a certain ammount of money. When at destination,they increased the price for the parking. One word:misleading In the small room bad canal smell and cold during the night. Heater on but draft (wind) through the window.

    Very good

    The outside of the building and where it is is beautiful its clean as you go into the reception and the receptionist was polite. The room was compact but tidy and clean. Like the bright bathroom and the underfloor heating.

    Noticed one of the top bed covers had a stain on it which should have been washed and clean on the bed.
