06 September 2010

Liked: It was clean.

Disliked: The toilets/baths are in different floors than the rooms. The rooms are under 8 m2. The bed is just near the wall, so one of the people sleeping there should go out straight and not aside.

Liked: Its location, close to Paddington Station.

Disliked: Too run down, it should be fixed and renovated. If there is a fire, god help, no fire escapes at all just narrow stairs.

Liked: Location, only. But it wasn´t worth it.

Disliked: The place is supost to be modest, but its not described as being as terrible. First, even if we did schedule to stay at Metro hotel, we were sent to another place, called "Tony's house", which wasn´t in the plan. Secondly, the room was barely inhabitable: very dirty, window wouldn´t close, painting falling of the walls, only bathroon was two floors below, etc. Really terrible.

Liked: Central, right near Paddington Station, you coul actually see it from our "balcony"Sadly there is NO AIR CON, and the window wouldn't open more than a crack as the bed was shoved up against it. Probably a good place to crash in the winter only.

Disliked: David left no negative feedback.

Liked: I really enjoyed my stay at the Metro Hotel! Placed right in the centre of paddington. Paddington station is literally on the doorstep allowing for fast and easy travel to anywhere you want to go and see in London! The staff were friendly and catered well for my needs! Another thing I liked was the continental breakfast that was on offer. A good selection of cakes, pastries and yoghurts along with orange juice and complimentary tea and coffee available at all times in your room. Another thing was the en- suite bathrooms. Very clean and a good standard with complimentary soaps and a nice hot shower! I very much enjoyed my stay at the Metro Hotel and would recomend it as a place to stay on a budget in London.

Disliked: Anthony left no negative feedback.

Liked: Its location is ideal and the price is about as low as you will get for something this convenient, but you pay for it with the cheapness of the room itself. Everything is clean, just very very basic and looks kind of cheap. Breakfast is nice though.

Liked: The hotel has an excellent location, near subway / train stations. There are also restaurants, pubs, markets, laundry in the neighbourhood. We also like the tea/coffee facilities in the bedroom and the breakfast. Our room, in the top floor, was very quiet.The double bed is very small for 2 people. The hall and the stairs smell smoke.

Disliked: Camila left no negative feedback.
