    Fabulous

    Great location for Paddington station and only about 15-20 minutes walk to the shops on Oxford Street. The 3 person room we had was snug but clean, whilst the staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay here again due to its central location and it felt a safe place to stay.

    Our room was right up the top which meant a number of stairs to negotiate as there is no lift but it meant that it was quiet. The shower room was clean but the shower head was too far low down so if you are above average height you would have to crouch a bit - not a showstopper but a bit of a pain.

    Fabulous

    Staff obviously working hard but very courteous and helpful. Location is excellent - peaceful and serene square but just two hundred metres from Paddington.

    Stairwells a bit grubby.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is located in a perfect area. The room has enough space to move around with a pretty small bathroom. The full breakfast was great with hot food made to order. Luggage storage was convenient too.

    The TV did not function properly and the internet charge is expensive...The reception actually was not on 24 hr service and basically no one was there after 11 pm.

    Fabulous

    The location is superbe. The square is charming and very quiet and cloe to the city center. The rooms are not modern but they are functional and modest and clean (except for the curtains). Nothing fancy but for the price more than acceptable.

    The walls are quite thin and you can hear people vaguely through the ventilation system but it's not majorly disturbing.

    One thing I like about this hotel was near paddington tube,other than that it was horribble confort and services.I dont rec to anybody.

    small rooms...uncortable bed...to many steps to get to your room.dirty fllor carpets in the rooms and floors.small breakfast area etc.

    Good

    Good location, very close to Paddington tube and train station. Room very basic but clean. Friendly staff

    The single room was very small, you have almost no space to open a suitcase. Same goes for the bathroom, a small plastic box with a toilet and shower next to each other where you barely have space to move. Poor insulation of the room, may be an issue on a cold windy day. Overall for the price, you pay more and get less than a basic Etap hotel in Europe.

    Location is great. A little on the expensive side but you got to remember it is London. Clean rooms but very small. We only stayed one night. I think it is too small for a long stay

    Superb

    The location was good. The room was small but very clean. Staff was friendly. The breakfast was very good.

    Climbing four flights of stairs was a bit grueling at first, but I got used to it as the week wore on.

    The location of this hotel is great, max 100 meters from the subway. the breakfast is good and the hotel room is clean. The room was small but everything I needed was there. a perfect place for a city trip.

    The location is good. Really close to the station.

    The room was extremely small, just the place for a bad. That was a bit outrageous. More over, the room didn't have a proper bathroom, but a shower separate from the rest of teh room with a plastic curtain !!!! I had the impression to be a student again!!! More over, internet wasn't working. Breakfast was also a disappointement! Won't stay there again
