It was a tiny and old room with a nice location. Reception was across the street at a different hotel. The hotel is dated with very minor renovations. There is a breakfast included with an acceptable selection!

I should thank the receptionist for letting me know where the farmacy was. The morning after my first night staying there I already realised bed bugs were on the mattress. Also I saw a mouse trap in the corridor by the entrance. This is far from a 3star hotel, at the most a 2star hotel.

We arrived at the hotel that looked so run down and dirty from the outside. On the door was a message to go the Westbourne hotel opposite to book in at their reception. This hotel appeared to be a 3 star accommodation. We were then kindly escorted to the Paddington to be shown 2 rooms, both were unacceptable as a...

The hotel was easy to find check in was quick and the staff were very pleasant. The room was cosy but very comfortable. It was a good location for the event we were going to. Check out was a bit stressful and they managed to use the wrong credit card to settle. I would return.

As I am reading these other reviews, I am puzzled as to why they are saying there is no lift and referring to "10 flights of stairs". The Pacific Hotel is only 4 stories tall, and there is a lift, albeit a small one to hold only one person at a time...but it was there and it is how I...

After seeing this hotel had been rated 3* and saw the decent (fake) photos of this hotel, when we were arrived we were beyond disappointed. So disappointed that we paid £250 extra to stay at the Westbourne Hotel which was more than delightful. I broke down into tears when entering the small, dark, musty room. The prison wash basin topped...

Spend a few pounds more and get a proper hotel in London. The only perk was location. There is no reception. You have to go across the street to even check in. No elevator. Had 40kg of luggage that my boyfriend and I had to lug up 10 flights of stairs to get to the top floor room. Breakfast is...

Really good location as we were going to a concert in Hyde Park. The room was clean, but that was pretty much all the positives. Very, very hot in the room with a fan that just moved hot air around. No lift, so lots of walking and breakfast was rather poor. I wouldn't stay again but it served a purpose!
