It met my expectations .....Posted Feb 28, 2014
Pros: Location & Quietness
Cons: In our room, the curtain could have been fitted a bit better and we could have done with a thicker quilt.
Location: Quiet location, a stones throw from Hyde Park, Paddington and all that London has to offer
Let's start by stating that this is one of the cheaper hotels in the Paddington area. Therefore do not expect the Hilton! I found that for a one night stay where we would only be sleeping in the hotel it was just what we wanted. It was clean, the facilitiies (toilet, shower, sink, tv, kettle, hairdryer, fridge, safe) all worked and for the price I was happy. The breakfast was adequate (cereals, croissants, fruit, yoghurt, toast, juice, tea + coffee and boiled eggs) set out as a buffet - help yourself. So, for the price I paid and for what I was expecting, a quiet hotel less that 5 minutes from Paddington station, it was great!

Exactly what I neededPosted Feb 9, 2014
Greeted by friendly staff and shown up to my room which was clean and warm, comfy bed with plenty of pillows! The breakfast was spot on every need catered for. The staff where extremely helpful with pointing out where shops and restaurants where found even helping me find the correct buses needed to reach my destination during the tube strike! A nice touch was the re making of my room although only there for a two night stay. Overall a comfy stay and I will be returning in the near future!

Old hotel in need of renovation and upgradingPosted Jan 12, 2014
Pros: The staff and breakfast and elegant staircase.
Cons: Size of rooms, curtains,.coathangers, decor/
Location: Near Paddington, Hyde Park and good for transport by bus and ubderground.
No problems with reception - all booked in OK. Staff helpful and polite. This was a very cheap deal (for London) and the location near Hyde Park was ideal for our one night in London. It included breakfast. Our room and en-suite were as small as it was possible to be to accommodate 2 adults. The bed was clean and relatively comfortable. It was at the front of the building and single glazed so there was noise of traffic all night although Gloucester Terrace is not a very busy road. Worse, the curtains did not cover the windows so the bright street lights shone in all night and the combination of noise and light prevented much sleep. The rooms at the back may be quieter. Amazingly, there was little noise from plumbling or other guests, so it was a real surprise to see how many other guests had been in residence. Breakfast was very good - plenty to eat and eat as much as you like.

Nice budget hotel with good locationPosted Jan 9, 2014
Good location, cleanness and staff. The bath room is a little small but consider the affordable price, it is still acceptable. Would return for my next visit.

Handy LocationPosted Dec 24, 2013
Pros: location, price
Cons: First impressions, better signage, clean welcome mat
Location: Location was good, close to tube & shops
We found the staff to be very pleasant & helpful. The location was good, motel was clean. Unfortunately first impressions were not good - the welcome mat was filthy. We found the stairs an issue, especially with the stairs.

Affordable hotel, close to Airport transportPosted Dec 14, 2013
Pros: Affordable. Convenient. Clean rooms
Cons: Breakfast basic, but nutritional. We were on the 3rd floor: challenging with a lot of luggage and no lift. However, hotel staff carried cases to room.
Location: Short walk to Paddington Station (with Heathrow Express service). Several tube stations nearby. Several reasonable restaurants nearby.
