Needs improvementPosted Jun 11, 2014
The hotel needs to improve the conditions offered to guests. The rooms are basic and there is no locker or hanger or TV. Only 2/3 beds and that's it. If they give a paint to the room and add a locker and a TV it would be a great improvement at a low cost. It's a pity that they don't invest on this as the location is great near Hyde Park. Staff is very friendly and helpful but the room conditions do not compensate.

It was ok, Very handy for TubePosted Oct 21, 2013
Cons: Three hangers on a radiator constituted my wardrobe.., with a suit and a couple of shirts this was a little bit of a disappointment.
Location: Array of bars, wine bars eateries and more within 100 yards of the hotel.
I booked up pretty late, 1 day before staying; London was extremely busy so there was little choice. This Hotel was ideal for the commute in to London and for those people only needing bare essentials accommodation. It was 2 minutes’ walk from Lancaster Gate Tube. Not having a wardrobe to hang clothes was a little surprising and no TV or Tea/Coffee facilities, but you can survive without these. 2 minutes’ walk from the hotel was a very good array of restaurants and bars etc. really spoilt for choice. It was clean and tidy and a very good location for getting in to London city.

Stay away at any cost, this is a rat-hole, not a B&B.

Good location, and a place to sleepPosted Sep 19, 2013
Cons: See review above.
Location: Hyde Park, Paddington tube station, and a Barclays bikes stop.
No front desk, cash or pay an extra 5%. No wifi, television, or phone. Breakfast room smelled so bad that I didn't even bother to try the food. Nobody at the front, so if you need service you need to walk around the building yelling for the elderly woman that looks after the place. The hotel is 6 floors, no elevator, and the woman was 80+ years old so when there was a problem with the electrical outlets in our room on the 6th floor, she gave me the keys to 3 other rooms in the building so I could test the plugs there. When I asked to be moved to a room with working electrical outlets she insisted that the hotel was full and that I should just leave my devices (iPad, laptop and phone) charging in the basement under her supervision. When I explained that was not an option and threatened to demand a full refund, she than moved me to another room. Overall it's a place to lay your head, it's over priced for what little you get, even for London.

Buy cheap buy twicePosted Sep 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
From the moment I arrived at this hotel, it was clear the photos were taken in much better days. From holes in the walls to shared toilets and unbearable road noise whilst trying to sleep. Needless to say I checked out the next morning and went to a different hotel.

Don't expect muchPosted Jul 22, 2013
Location: near the park - good for morning walk.
Disappointing hotel for the price....but maybe thats London. Location is good....good hotel for someone who is out and about and just needs a place to sleep.

Basic yet convenientPosted Jun 14, 2013
Pros: Convenience and friendliness
Cons: Shared loo
Location: Fantastic for WestEnd and if coming by train to Paddington
This is a very basic hotel but in a superb location for west end and perfectly comfortable. Owners very friendly and welcoming. Reasonably priced for convenience.
