DisappointingPosted Mar 20, 2014
Pros: The owner was really nice and knowledgeable about the bus routes etc. the room was very clean, if worn. Breakfast was ok.
Cons: Decor. Blankets - the one on our bed was army surplus!
Location: Close to Hyde park and tube stations, so a decent location.
Glad we only had to stay here for 2 nights! Room tiny; wardrobe was a makeshift corner cupboard. The shower room had been recently refurbished, but if we had been anything other than 'standard' sized people it would have been a struggle to get in and out.

Good value for money hotel near Paddington stationPosted Nov 23, 2013
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Hotels furniture needs renovation.
Location: Close to Paddington station. Heathrow easily accessible by Heathrow Express and central London by tube and buses.
Very friendly and helpful staff. The manager extended our stay by one day and even has given a rate much better than available on the internet

Budget convenience in PaddingtonPosted Oct 29, 2013
Pros: Location and helpful staff.
Cons: Short of making the rooms larger and renovating the whole place, not much!
Location: Nearby to Paddington mainline and tube stations and various buses, plus eateries. Near to Hyde Park.
We were looking for a hotel close to Paddington Railway station and this was a short walk (10 mins) from the station, and close to numerous cafes and Paddington tube station, as well as Hyde Park. We had a triple room on the ground floor behind the Reception area for me and my mother (both adults), which was fine, although it would be pretty cramped for a family with children. Bathroom was small but clean. As there was no lift, the fact we did not have to carry bags upstairs was a bonus - you might want to note this if you have large or heavy bags. Not a lot of room for large bags though I managed to fit mine in the wardrobe. Although our room was behind the reception office, it was not noisy. Breakfast is provided and is fairly basic but filling. The manager was particularly helpful with recommendations for local sight seeing, maps, ticket bookings and booked us a mini cab for a fixed price for our trip to Kings Cross when we checked out, as well as allowing us to leave our bags at the hotel after check out to do some sight seeing before returning to take the mini cab. This was appreciated. Overall, this is not a flash place by any means but it is a good basic, reasonably priced (by London standards) convenient option.

Good location to Paddington, but noisyPosted Sep 17, 2013
Pros: The proprietor, Bobby, was very nice and helpful. There was not much else to like, other than the location.
The rooms were small, very typical for row-house type hotels in London. The bathroom was too small for our tastes. Only 1 person could fit in it at a time. We had trouble sleeping at night due to the street noise. We do not know if a room facing the courtyard would have had a double bed. The room teapot was filthy inside--I would not make hot water for tea in it. The kitchen downstairs (where breakfast was prepared) was also filthy. They ran out of fruit several days at breakfast. I did not get my money's worth for the "breakfast included" part of the cost.

Good location, terrible smellPosted Sep 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
While the location was fairly convenient and the neighborhood was nice, the tiny room reeked of moth balls and curry. The smell was so unsettling that we had to leave our window open and the fan turned on high 24/7. Aside from the smell, the room was a bit on the smaller side (even for London as I previously lived there), the front desk was closed from about 6pm to 6am, and the linens seemed worn and very old. Good neighborhood, descent price, and some good bars/restaurants nearby.

Great locationPosted Jun 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great location - close to a lot of the popular sites. The room itself was decent, but i think 3 stars is pushing it. I found the room hot with no A/c and couldnt open up the window because there was no screen to keep bugs out. The free Wifi was a great bonus and the staff was really friendly and helpful.

Barry House not so good...Posted Mar 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
We booked this hotel on the basis of published reviews only to discover that the hotel is 1-star at best and does not live up to its description.

Where's the waterPosted Feb 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
There was no hot water in the morning when we woke up. The owner didn't seem to care and provided no appologies or explanation, just told us to wait a little longer and we'd have water - after over an hour and a half of waiting.

great location, great for cheap skatesPosted Jan 21, 2013
This hotel is fine for 2 or 3 nights. Good breakfast and friendly reception. But not one to take the Mrs. to for a fancy weekend, more of a weekend with mates on the tiles kind of place. If youre on a budget, its good.
