We had a terrible stay there! The staff can be very rude, especially those who serve breakfast in the morning. The room was very dusty, the curtains looked as though they've never been cleaned since they've been put up and the bed covers looked so terrible! Furthermore, some of the amenities in the room were not working. I will never...

As a family of five we stayed in the family room which has one double and 3 single beds. Room was clean and not too cramped. Breakfast was good and service was very good overall other than one of the ladies who serves breakfast who does have an attitude problem. Good value for money, would certainly stay again.

Stayed for my second visit. The hotel had been reurbished during last year and the room was nice and modern but rather small. We had ordered a twin bed room but got a double:-(( Breakfast was nice this time also.

This hotel is a few blocks from Paddington Station and about a 15-20 minute walk to Oxford st. The hotel seems to have undergone renovations. The room we were in was very roomy with high ceilings and clean. The beds were comfortable. There was a towel warmer in the bathroom which was quite handy. Breakfast in the morning was fantastic....

I chose this hotel for the location as it was close to both Oxford Street for shopping and Hyde park as we were going to some gigs there. The size of our room was a bit disappointing as there were 3 of us so I booked a triple room but this was more like a double room with a double...

I booked online for 3 nights for my friends to stay at this hotel. At the time of check in, they were asked to tell me to send an authorisation email since the card holder was not present which was me. i sent them the email as requested and they were checked in with no hustle. On their second night...

Our so-called 'double' room was tiny and inconvenient--no room to move, with about 12 inches clearance on each side of the bed. One person had to stay on the bed if the other wanted to move! It looked like a dorm room. The bathroom wasn't much better: sitting on the toilet meant your knees were in the shower, the only...

Two friends and I shared the family room, which was quite small but clean an with a recently re-modelled bathroom. Breakfast was full English (not just muffins) and staff was friendly. The hotel looked to be freshly painted, and was neat and clean with good daily room service. My companions did think the mattresses could have been better (or just...
