Arrived to find I had been allocated room 1 which is located on the ground floor next to the front entrance. The room entrance is in reception area. The room was around 5.5 foot by 6 foot. The bed was next to the window which wasn't double glazed and so there was an icy draft blowing directly onto the bed....

I stayed here Sunday at a busy time, despite how busy the staff were quick, polite, efficient and really helpful. Now I stay around Paddington a lot and have used many of the local independent hotels, most are poor quality. However this place was fantastic and in great condition and exceptionally clean with good facilities.

Since arriving on our first day, the staff have been the most genuine, attentive and polite people we have met in a hotel. Any problems, they found the solution with a smile on their faces, we could not have felt more welcome, like family for the week! We couldn't thank Olesea and Florin enough, we even stood talking to them...

Honestly what I love the most about this hotel are the staff; they go above and beyond their duty to make you comfortable and at home. Ms Olesea from reception was absolutely remarkable at accommodating me in the best room for my needs. It really helped color a great stay. Also for those arriving with heavy bags like me always,...

我們一家三口預訂了豪華三人房,但飯店給了我們一間超小的地下室房間,完全不通風而且臭味很重。連絡晚班工作人員但對方根本不想回應,態度很差! We book a delux triple room for our family, but we only got tiny double room. Ask staff at night to change room but they don't really care our needs. I feel so bad to choose this hotel for my family, will NEVER come again.

Very small room but we both agreed that for the amount of time we would spend there it wasn't worth saying anything. The breakfast was superb with a fantastic choice of...

After booking, there were an alarming number of negative reviews. We were braced for the worst...but were delighted when we opened the door to our room (#118). The room had plenty of space and a very large bed. The bathroom was a tight fit, but overall we were quite pleased. The location is excellent, a very short walk from Paddington...
