            Great location”

            Close to Paddington underground and Lancester Gate. Easy to find halal food nearby. But the elevator can fit only 2 person at one time. They did not provide the heater and the worst part was we can’t even close the window and the room gets really cold.

            Cheap and cheerful”

            The Craven is not really a hotel but more of an upscale hostel. The rooms are tiny but they have everything you need - beds, hot showers etc. Having stayed in numerous London hotels in my time this is by far the cheapest hotel I've stayed in but that's reflected in the rooms and the facilities. We had twin room and the beds were about 8 inches apart - so space is tight! However, if your plan is to visit London, see the sites and all you need is a bed for the night then you can't go far wrong. It's just around the corner from Lancaster Gate tube that takes you into Piccadilly in minutes. Breakfast is ok too. I'd probably stay again because it's value for money.

            Not what we expected”

            Upon early arrival we left our bags behind reception but a little worried as they were in a room not locked or had tags on. Booked a triple room but given a double & single which was fine but the hotel was obviously the middle of a refurb and our room had some wet paint. In rooms no bin, no telephone, floor in the wet room very slippery after our shower in the evening and the water remained around the toilet. Trying to sleep & a light from a window behind the bed kept coming on/off in the corridor all night (curtains as well as a blind then you would not have this problem) also the corridor outside our room, the door did not have a soft close on it, so every time someone walked through it banged shut. The same was outside our friends room on the first floor. The morning - no hot water at 8.15am my friend asked and we all still had no hot water after breakfast at 10am apparently all the water had been used? Breakfast was nice but waitress holding hands over plate of toast to table?

            Location and not much more.”

            I stayed at Craven Hotel for 3 nights. The facilities were undergoing a massive refurbishment and that's why I didn't give a lower rate. The double twin room was ridiculously small. The beds could barely fit in, no nightstands, no shelves. Only a tiny table squeezed between the beds. The bathroom was very small too with a microscopic sink(I flooded the floor when I washed my face).

            Great location quiet for sleeping and close to tube,own shower and toilet,clean and comfortable bed

            As a base this is good value. Was great location easy to get to all places and 5mins walk from tube but on quiet street. No lift so beware if you have difficulties climbing stairs but they were actually fitting lift whilst we were there. Small room on 3rd floor. Fan provided which we were grateful for in heatwave. Bedding was clean and bathroom adequate with shower toilet and basin as well as little toiletries. Tea and coffee in room. We had breakfast all in. The staff there were quite ignorant..no guidance given on how to get your tea coffee etc. Was given once we asked. Only bacon egg sausage and beans plus 2 cereals..white bread only for toast. For us personally this was all sufficient and was tasty. The desk staff were cheery and helpful. Looks tired and in need of lick of paint but all in all served it's purpose for us as sightseeing and was up and out until bedtime. Would stay again

            cost, centrally located , close to umderground

            There is no lift in this hotel so not suitable for heavy luggage traveller. We live on the top floor (4/F) and its hard to climb up all stairs if you hv big suitcase. The room is small but clean. However the soundproofing is so bad as next day early morning around 6am the next room start to take shower and it create a huge noise which all woke us up. The room has only a very small window with no air con or fan, lucky the weather is cool during our stay but I cant imagine how we can survive if in the hot summer time. The wifi works well on the first night but suddenly disconnect on the second night. Its close to the paddington station with 15 mins walk and not difficult to find.

            access to public transport

            We arrived at 11 AM, but were not able to check in before 12 PM. Room was even smaller than decent hotel rooms in Tokyo and had an awfull smell. The "hotel" had no lift so we had to carry all our luggage up the stairs to the third floor, so I wouldn't recommending any elderly people to stay at this place. Shower was either ice cold or burning hot, and there was no a/c in the room. We had to sleep with the window open during the night, but it didn't help much. The Internet was really bad as it got turned off between 8AM-8PM. The staff told us that the WiFi was up and going, but it didn't work on any of our devices (Mac, Iphone, Ipad). You could probably get a more decent and comfortable hostel for this price.
