This is what you get for £60 a night in London. A room with a bed, toilet and shower. Nothing else. Narrow staircase. Window that falls out, overlooking the platform of Paddington tube station.
Rubbish breakfast. Instant coffee.
Location is great, that's the best part, Paddington station is seconds away from it, also loads of restaurants and shops around
Hotel is extremely basic but I expected it after reading reviews, the mattresses was horrendous, was down on the floor on one side, to be honest it could have gone away with rest cos as mentioned staff were ok and breakfast is very basic but I am fine with toast and coffee then it met my needs. About mattresses just a shame they keep that in
Not a lot to like here, besides the location.
The room is extremely loud, as if you’re sleeping on the side of the road. The bed is uncomfortable and squeaky, the shower is full of mould and panels are falling off the walls. The reception is closed at indiscriminate times, which caused me to get locked out of the hotel. The internal doors slam SO loudly, and there are tiny step everywhere which caused me to fall over a good couple of times and stub my toe. Hated it.
Very pleasant and quick check-in
The mattress was very cheap and very thin - i.e. I could feel every spring. I didn't sleep well as it was hot, the only option was to open the windows and it is very noisy every night outside.
Location is good tho
There was no staff serving breakfast and it's almost 840 that time. There's unwashed coffee mugs in our room.
