                    The heating system is good and fully on for the whole of my stay

                    Bath room should be provided with small bucket for muslim guest

                    Location

                    No lift(third floor without lift with the luggage it's not so nice) . Noise from other rooms.No hot water.

                  • Older travelers
                    7.8

                    Staff, position, convenience, easy transport.

                    Insufficient ventilation in the bathroom has resulted in a stale smell. The grouting of the tiles was discoloured, which could be improved simplt using Dettol mould remover which is sold in a green bottle for less than £3. The beds were in need of renewal as you could feel the structure, but we slept all right.

                  • Older travelers
                    7.4

                    It was a normal hotel for travelling

                    The Nigth Lamp lights didn t work and they did not fix them

                  • Family with children
                    5.4

                    No left in the hotel and very small toilet

                  • Single
                    5.4

                    I booked the hotel via the smokers-united website, but it turned out to be a non-smoking hotel so I stayed elsewhere and won't be back.

                    7.4

                    The location was very good, a few minutes walk from Paddington Station. The room was clean, each staff I spoke with did not display the typical "I hate my job, I don't care" attitude that is so typical in other places in the area...they were quite friendly and helpful.

                    No elevator and the stairs were long and narrow...an elderly person would not make it. Very low water pressure up on the 4th floor in the tap and shower...I Had to use the shower head to fill the toilet tank in order to flush. Otherwise the facilities were brand new and very clean. It was overpriced (due to it being London Marathon weekend perhaps?).

                    9.6

                    It provided a clean and comfortable single room and a decent breakfast at a budget price. The staff were freindly and helpful.

                  • Family with children
                    5.8

                    Nice personal and helpfull. Frukost personal very nice

                    the beds are not confortable att all, I couldn´t sleep att all, they make sounds and move. You have to bring with you your own schampoo, For 5 persons family who stay 5 days we just got 2 små soap. The breakfast is good but lite and allways the same.

                    6.6

                    The receptionist - she was charming

                    the breakfast was disappointing - poor quality food - coffee machine broken - staff though were helpful

                    Good location close to Paddington Stationa and Tube

                    A tired hotel hotel in need of some TLC!
