It did state a single room but the size of this room gave a new meaning to a single room

Too many stairs

Poor, old and unfriendly. Avoid.

Receptionist not at all welcoming. Hotel rooms are very small. Whole hotel needs badly updating with frayed carpets etc evident throughout. Very poor that breakfast isnt served until 0730. When I said I was looking for some breakfast at 0700 so as to be able to go to work - it was simply met with a shrug of the shoulders. Altogether very poor in my opinion and I wont be returning.

1 night stay.

Posted May 5, 2015
Pros: The staff were cheerful and friendly.
Cons: A lift. The ensuite in our room, was better than non at all, but not really acceptable for the price of the room.
Lovely old building.We received a friendly welcome. Sadly no lift, 60 stairs to the 3rd floor! Our double room had a comfortable bed and the linen was nicely laundered, the furnishings and decoure however were tired and dated The public areas were much smarter. The ensuite was unlike any other that I have ever seen, tiny, moulded plastic like in caravan. Clean but disappointing.

Convenient to Paddington with friendly staff

Posted Dec 18, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness and breakfasts
Cons: Difficult in an old building but some redecorating would be a help. Double rooms are small and I was told a single room would be very small.
Location: Couple of minutes from Paddington Station. Walking distance to Marble Arch and Regent Street. Lots of easy public transport. Lovely Lebanese food.
Asked for lower floor room as no lift. Only problem was that it was over a tube line. However, I was amazed how quickly I forgot about it and slept well. Room small and needed redecorating but very clean. Minute pod bathroom but adequate and again very clean. Steep stairs to breakfast room but worth going down for the delicious freshly cooked scrambled eggs and hot toast that I had both days. Helpful and friendly owners and staff. Would stay there again for convenience and the scrambled eggs.

Pros: The English Breakfast.
Cons: Better building insulation.
Location: The location is ideal because there are a variety of restaurants and small stores nearby, and the hotel is a five minute walk from Paddington Station.
I occupied a room below ground level and constantly heard the rumble of arriving and departing Underground trains from nearby Paddington Station. Also, in the early morning there was an intermittent loud machine-like noise coming from outside. Typical of London hotels, the room was too small. The bathroom was cramped and barely fit a shower stall, commode, and wash basin.

Pros: It is in the very center of London next to Paddington rail station.
Location: walking distance to the Hyde Park
If you can climb steep stairs and live without clean sheets for 3-4 days, it is a good hotel to stay for people with low budget. Breakfast was good and was included.
