Liked it all.

It was great! Very accommodating front desk and good location.

The location was perfect and so close to food, shops, and the underground. However, the sheets were not changed near as frequently as needed. Other than that it was a great stay!

Location is great , Near many attractions and close to all transportation ,beds are comfortable . Room was clean .

Amazing location but the family room was really small.

Friendly staff, quick check-in, and close location to Paddington Station and Hyde Park. Full breakfast was quite good.

This hotel was great if you like hotel breakfast and a soft bed. I stayed in a larger room with four beds. One that was a full and one twin, and then two bunks. The room had older style bedding and the bathroom needed some remodeling to cleanup some mold growth. But you could tell it was being cleaned. The location is highly convenient to Paddington Station and within walking distance two several shops. Breakfast was a highlight. Make sure to get the breakfast, which includes fresh made eggs, toast, sausage and bacon (ham). I would consider staying here again on my next trip to London.

After reading some reviews before going there I was a little nervous about how big the rooms would be. I was pleasantly surprised the size of our room was just fine. We had a family room so it included a bunk bed, a single bed, and a double bed which was perfect for my kids who don't like sharing beds. The breakfast was good. Unfortunately our stay here was cut short due to flight issues but overall it was a nice place.

Great location near Paddington station. The staff was friendly and the room fit our family of 5 well.

I liked how close to transport it was. I didn’t like that there want a fridge in the room.

Really nice staff. Close to the big bus tour stop and the tube, easy to get around.

Nice hotel, great location close to Paddington Station.

Very convenient location, quick access to bus, tube. Easy connections by rail to most locations. Rooms are extremely small, cramped space. Bed linen In need of upgrade. Housekeeping good, fresh towels daily. Breakfast met our needs. Pleasant staff. Overall stay was decent.

Very Close to Edgware Road and Paddington Stations, Many Attractions Around, Many Eating Places Around, Very Clean and Large Rooms, Excellent Reception Staff

In the heart of London but out of the hustle and bustle! Great breakfasts and service! Mimo’s Italian Restaurant is just around the corner. Paddington Station is a five minute walk.
