5.7 Fair
Pros:A short walk from Paddington Station, relatively cheap.
Cons:Rooms very small, i wonder how they got the bed in. Very heavy mould issue in the bathroom. Underground goes right beneath the Hotel.
6.5 Okay
Pros:Nice and kind staff. The room was small but cousy.
Cons:We stayed for five days and they didn't clean our room not once. We also found empty snacks bags under the bed, and a small piece of broken glass on the bed.
2.8 Poor
Pros:Only thing good is location- near Paddington station.
Cons:Greeted by man with thick French accent and immediate attitude. Gave me room on first floor and said I had to pay extra for breakfast... Tried getting in room several times with no luck, husband checked with him and was ssured that it was correct... Eventually a little girl opened door... Back to reception. Then we got a TINY room on 4th floor (no elevator) with horrible smell and dirty bathroom. I quickly found my paper work which indictated breakfast was included.. Back down 4 flights of stairs.. And he still tried to tell me it wasn't. Eventually he caved (only because I had print out clearly stating it was included). Thankfully we only had to stay three nights.. Had to keep the window open the entire time due to smell even though it was cold outside (slight headache entire time). I went back to kayak to look at pictures provided.... What a crock!!!! Highly do not recommend. Only positive was location near Paddington.
5.4 Fair
Pros:The location was great, 2 minute walk to Paddington Station.
Cons:The hotel was under construction so we woke up both mornings to the sound of hammering, sawing and general banging about coming from our ceiling. It started as early as 730 am and went as late as 930 pm. When I asked to be moved rooms, I was told they could only move us one floor down from the noise instead of on the other side of the building. They really should warn guests about this before booking.
7.6 Good
Pros:great location, satisfactory breakfast.
Cons:bad mattress
