    A little small for 2 people but great staff! ”

    The room was super small, by myself I would’ve been fine but my boyfriend is quite tall and muscular so he had a hard time moving around in the room and in the shower without hitting the walls or the shower head. Service was good, staff was very helpful and it was clean enough. Amazing location so I guess you pay for the location.

    High value!”

    I booked this hotel on the same night due to my bookings in other hotels not allowed me check-in in the late evening. But very soon I stay in this hotel, they offer me the room on the ground floor because I have 2 big pieces of luggage. And the staff in reception is friendly and kindly guided me. The location is perfect coz it is just a few meters walk from Paddington Station, which allowed me to bring my luggage directly to take Heathrow Express. I will choose this hotel again if I visit London again!

    3rd time staying”

    This is my third time staying at this hotel and I will continue to be back if I'm staying in London! The hotel is located close to Paddington Rail and Underground stations (along with a number of bus stops nearby), and is not noisy at night. My room was very clean upon check-in, and the housekeepers are always very helpful! Staff at the reception are also very kind and polite.

    Overpriced Hotel with Small Room”

    The hotel staff were very friendly, helpful & courteous. The room were too small with toilet door half blocked by a bedroom table. They was no table or chair in the tiny guestroom & the small wardrode was light & wobbly. The standard room should not be charged more than £70 per night without breakfast for such condition and no one seems to vacuum our room during our 4nights stay. We were very unhappy with the hotel condition but was make right by the exceptional courteous & helpful hotel staff.

    This is my second time staying here. Their rooms are bigger and cleaner than most other budget hotels around the area and for a really decent price too. The housekeepers and receptionists that I met were really kind and helpful. Overall, I had a really nice stay at this place and will probably be staying here again if I'm going London.

    The hotel was clean. Same as any other hotel in the area, there is no lift so u must ready yourself to bring up your luggage on a flight of stairs. The room was small but comfortable enough. It was clean and well kept. The staff was kind enough to let us check in earlier and have late check out until 2pm for a small fee. Will recommend this hotel.

    Great location! Room was very clean & quite ok. Nothing exceptional but if you just need a decent place to stay at a great location - then it's perfect. Tho the problem was that the walls are very very thin and if somebody smoked the next door (tho it wasn't even allowed!) it sank into our room too. Staff was also very friendly.

    Excellent location, affordable room! ”

    Prior to our coming we asked for a low floor room bc we had a baby with us and since there is no elevator it would be easier. Demand fulfilled! We asked by curiosity if the breakfast was included in the price, the receptionist told us no but offered it to us! That's was very nice gesture. As for the room, it was more than correct and clean. Bathroom was very small but this is a detail. For the price it's worth it. I recommend!

    Location, price and comfort

    I needed a hotel in central London and wanted one with easy access to transport, small and price. This hotel ticked all the boxes and I would definitely stay again, especially because I found the room at the front noisy on the first night and they moved me straight away. The staff were friendly and helpful and it's a few minutes walk to Paddington and a few minutes longer to Hyde park. The downside of the hotel is the smallness of the rooms and the choice of food. However, to be honest while in London there are plenty of places to find excellent food and while in London there is far too much to do to spend your time in a hotel room. If you want 5 star luxury then look elsewhere but if you want a comfortable and affordable base then I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

    I don't know how to recommend and review this hotel, it's fully booked when we reached there at night and transfer us to another hotel. But we can still booking it at Agoda at the same day. We just stay there 15 minutes waiting for the taxi and we cannot feel any sorry. So King Cross Hotel, the hotel we transfer to have good location, near King Cross station, good service friendly staff but bad room, we feel like sleep on the spring directly. By the way, it mess up all our plan once she said FULLY BOOKED!

    Not awful but not great”

    Despite having booked two months in advance there were only rooms available on the top floor. None of my requests had been reviewed and I ended up in a room that wasn't great. I had to ask for a different kettle because the one I had stopped working. I found out it's a common problem. All hairdryers are kept at reception and I felt odd asking to use one. It wasn't awful but it wasn't great. It's really close to Paddingstation if that's what you're after.
