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.

Perfect location. It's just a few minutes walk from Paddington station. The twin room is quite small and shower room is tiny. Narrow stairway with no lift. I've had hard time to bring my heavy luggage upstairs. Overall acceptable for a short stay.

I stayed here for work during the time of the Brexit vote. The price was great, but the room was tiny. If you're on your own and just need a bed, toilet and shower, then go for it! There's literally no room for anything else.

Everything was fine: the breakfast although the same every day, was more than enough: warm and cold, traditional and continental with a variety of choices: beans, bacon, sausages, eggs, cheese, tomatoes, toast, fruits, butter etc. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are small but it's not an inconvenience since you are there to visit London. Situated on a...

Hotel is in a superb location - very close to Paddington station and central London. It's in a nice quiet square though and so noise wasn't an issue. We booked three rooms - two twin and one double. All of the rooms had a double and one single bed in them and so we can only assume this is the...

The hotel is strategically placed, right across the street from Paddington Station. You can get there easily from any airport and then you're ready to go anywhere in the centre of London. The lining in my room were not very well cleaned and the hotel smelled at all time of either frying or cooking or... Anyway, the prices are really...

It is a nice, small hotel, conveniently located next to the underground station. The rooms and the bathroom are very small, but clean, so if you just need a place to sleep after the whole day of sightseeing this hotel will be a good choice. Very friendly and helpful hotel staff will make the stay even better.
