          We had good stay at the hotel although we were given the room on the top floor, luckily they have a lift. The place was near to the shops and hyde park. Our last day there the lift was on maintainance so had to carry all our bags down all the 4 stairs, but overall experience was nice. Breakfast are provided and the public transport are not very far from the hotel.

          We chose the Alexander for a second time because of it's close proximity to Hyde park & Paddington station. It was great to see that money is being spent on the exterior of the property & it was looking very smart when we left. This time we had to climb 70 steps to our room that was on the top floor with no explanation to why the lift wasn't working, hence the 3 stars for the facilities. This would not stop me booking again but this time I would check I was not on the top floor.

          My twin room was spacious (for London) well set up and renovated. Large bath, lots of hot water, double glazed. Good continental breakfast including fruit yoghurt. Only downside is the lack of air conditioning (only portable fan) which meant the window had to be opened onto noisy street.

          Within Expectations”
          We stayed at this hotel as it is very near to the paddington train station with the Heathrow Express train direct to the airport. Do overlook that the lift only operates to the 2nd floor and those staying at the higher floor will have to carry their luggage from the 2nd floor and you may need to call the front desk if there is no hot water for the shower. These maybe minor inconveniences given its price comparison with other hotels and Airbnb around the area and its location. Breakfast maybe the same everyday and towels are not changed everyday but they are indicated clearly in the room. Overall, we are satisfied with the hotel and will recommend to someone without very high expectation and you will not be disappointed.

I was cramped and uncomfortable but the way to the room is deep. we have to go so many stairs and pass about 4 door with the heavy bags so we didn't decide to talk to the reception but we are sure to not go in there anymore

Small room but i got everything i need. Although wifi is not complimentary, but who cares, most smart travelers would have purchased local sim for on-the-go internet access, and so what, this is London, u can get free wifi from anywhere around the city.

          Excellent location, 2 mins walk from Paddington station. Plenty of bus routes nearby, shops and restaurants, and Hyde Park. Pleasant area to stay. Rooms and décor are a bit tired, but okay, comfortable enough. Breakfast is Continental only, though very good. The main gripe here is it finishes at 0915, even Sunday mornings! If you've been to the theatre the night before and not got to bed 'til late this isn't what you want. Having paid £125 for the night, missing breakfast is not an option. Room checkout is 10.30, not 11.00 as it says on the website. Tube for two to Piccadilly Circus is £9.60, Black Cab is around £12.00, so a no brainer really.

          The location is perfect since it is located close to both Paddington St. and Lancaster underground. The staff is super friendly and helpfull. The rooms are clean but small.
          We where two friends going to London for only 3 days. We chose Alexandra since its location was perfect, and the price was low. The hotel was super easy to find, and the staff was very friendly. The rooms are very small. Ours was a twin-bed room, and there was just about 30 cm. between the bed, but the bathroom has a fine size, and was clean. There are no free wifi in the hotel, but it is not needed since you can just go to the nearest cafe and sit there instead of in the small rooms. Overall a nice hotel, friendly staff and a place we would definitely stay again!

          It is terribly horrible. The room is so so tiny! Probably 6sqm? An attic room? Lift only to level 2 and we had to drag our luggage up 1 more level via a very very narrow stairs. And there was simply no space in the room. I can't even open up my suitcase probably. Waste of money and totally spoilt our stay.

          The hotel is easy to find driving one's own car. Sussex Gardens is a very good location, an easy walk to Hyde Park and Paddington subway station; GBP15 for a taxi to Euston. Parking difficult as everywhere in London. Having an elevator is a great relief - not found in many similar hotels. Breakfast is standard and unexciting but well served. Altogether very satisfactory.

Its 1 pound for an hour and 3 pound for 24hours. and that's only for 1 person using it. No fridge in room. we read reviews on Trip Advisor and certainly didn't go for the continental breakfast they were offering. there are lots of eateries just minutes walk away......
