Would repeatPros: Very close to paddington station. Staff was friendly and helpful overall. Breakfast was fine. Room was clean although tiny by US standards. Cons: No washcloth given even upon request. Bathroom miniscule with broken towel rack. Overcharged for taxi due to hotel arrangement with company, but the drive and driver were nice.
Pros: I loved the location of this hotel. For it's location the price can't be beat!Cons: Difficult to navigate the labyrinth of hallways and stairwells. I felt like I was in a video game the first few times I needed to find my room or way out.
Lovely hotel, great locationPros: We very much enjoyed our stay. Very close to Paddington station which made the trip from Heathrow very easy on the Heathrow express. They provide a "handy phone" a mobile phone for use during your stay. This was fantastic as we could call back to the USA for free! Additionally, it provided a local phone with internet access while we were away from Wi-Fi which made navigating the city very easy. Pre-programed on the phone were maps of the tube system and sights of the city. Cons: Breakfast was supposed to be included but the hotel said it was not. We are being reimbursed by the booking company.
Don't Let High Ratings Fool YouPros: It was available last minute and was cheap (definitely got what I paid for), the exterior is gorgeous (looks much nicer outside), the location can't be beat - 5 minute walk to Paddington tube station. Staff very friendlyCons: Broken/rusted side table lamps, stained/ripped sheets and towels, moldy grout in shower, walls paper thin (very loud), food choices were few and unappetizing.
Well located but very small roomPros: Well locatedCons: Very small room
Moved to a different hotelPros: I cannot accurately give input as they moved us to a different hotel and tried to charge us for breakfast even though it was supposed to be included. Felt scammed. Cons: They moved us across the street to a different hotel. We didn't even stay at the hotel I'd booked. Felt like a scam.
Poor nights sleep, but a clean roomPros: CleanCons: Noisy air conditioning unit (even when turned off), light from hallway was shining through door, ventilator noise from outside windows, green light from smoke detector.
