08 January 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Nice rooms, small but nicely arranged. Nice bathroom. Very close to Hyde park and many pubs and restaurants. Friendly staff. Clean and safe!

Disliked: Breakfast was a bunch of packed food, not terrible, but the same packaged roll and yogurt gets old after the 5th day. Bad directions... they should realize that there are 2 different exits from paddington station which are on different sides of the street, therefore without realizing this and "exiting left" led us on a 45 min hunt for the hotel which was 3 min away. Bummer.

Liked: Nice new bathroom in the ensuite room. Great location. A lot of nice restaurants nearby and the Paddington railway/subway station is on walking distance (2 minutes walk). The hotel is old, but the rooms are clean.

Disliked: It's an old hotel and a couple of things in the room where broken (chair, light, staircase). It can be a bit noisy with other travelers. And it's a bit expensive for what you'll get.

Liked: so friendly staff. Had fun with them. bathroom was big for London! bathroom was clean and new. very nice.

Disliked: small/tiny bed-two people in about 120-130x200 cm bed is too less space. traffic noises during the night, but that´s normal in London city. I´m just not used to it. so the bed is something for couples. The breakfast was a little unhealthy&the same every day. a roll, jam, butter, croissant filled with chocolate or jam, a cupcake, a yoghurt and cookies. would have liked fruits instead of the junk food better. but it was okay.
