t beat it for the pricefrom BobBeard
Nice Hotel but...from temmert45
My wife, two teenage daughters and I stayed at this hotel on July 22nd. We had a Club room which can accomodate up to 4 people with a little shuffling around. The hotel is very well located close to Paddington station so we walked from the station to the hotel with our rollerboard style cases.
The hotel is very nice mid range hotel. It was very clean and the staff was very nice and helpful. I had read earlier about unhelpful staff at this hotel. We did not see this.
The room was clean and efficient but with 3 twin beds and a rollaway you can imagine we were short on space but it was manageable.
Between the restaurants at the station and the surrounding area there is just about every kind of food you can want. We had dinner at a very nice Italian restaurant and bought some fresh fruit at a local market nearby.
Also the bus tours stop just around the corner from the hotel.
The real downside is that there is no air conditioning at this hotel. And this would not have been a problem except for the heat wave London was experiencing at the time. The hotel staff was kind enough to provide us with two fans but after one night we called it quits and booked another hotel.
If it were any season but summer I would stay at this hotel again.
Good Hotel for your Moneyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Excellent value for moneyfrom Kazcat65
Places to avoid eating in: Angus steak house - food cold, poor quality and expensive. They live off tourists who visit once and never return. We'd also avoid the other steak house (scotch steak house?)round the corner, same as above except food was hot and poor quality. ASK around the corner from the hotel are good for pizza, pasta around £50 for two including two courses and wine. Also The Golden Hinde on marylebone lane have fantastic fish & chips and a great atmosphere £21 for two - worth it though. You need to keep heading down the lane and across several roads to find it! Garfunkels by paddington station are reliable, but predictable, standard TGIF style steaks, burgers, chips etc @£32.00 for two. No vegetarian options - unless you want salad.
If you take a taxi book your own (not through reception!) or hail one. We had a taxi through reception and a bloke in an ordinary saloon car turned up and charged us £12 to Euston Station. The black cabs charge £7.40. He then had the cheek to play the 'don't think I have change' when I gave him £15. You are warned!
Excellent qualityfrom davegore
we had a room in the basement which seems to have caused most of the complaints, a triple room, and it was excellent, the room had more than enough space for the three of us, the beds were comfy and the room and especially the bathroom were spotless
the check in was painless and the breakfast which was a continental buffet and the full english was excellent, the staff were helpful and we got the impression that nothing would be a trouble to them i would not hesitate to tell anyone to go and stay here, good value, comfy and helpful staff, what more could anyone want
The hotel's continental breakfast was not a highlight, but you could certainly fill up on it if you wanted. We choose to go to a little cafe around the corner called Mimo's, where we got full English breakfasts.
Terrible!from A TripAdvisor Member
we stayed in the basement in a triple room , 3 beds a good hair dryer,iron,ironing board, trouser press,kettle . In the bathroom good bath and shower with soap shower gel/shampoo ( we forgot ours ) lovely towels . could not fault it , the only noise we heard was in the morning because we were across from the kitchen so the staff coming in and out slammed the door but it was only 2 mornings and it was not that bad .we didnt go in the bar at night or used the restaurant so cant say what they were like .
did not deal with staff much only to check in and to check out we were not shown to our room but told were it was . lovely place and would go back .

Overall: Great location, nice hotel. Would definitely stay there again.
The worst hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I am so sorry to say that, apart from its location (very close to Paddinton station and Hyde park), I cannot see any good things in this so-called 3-star award winning hotel. It would be a great shame if it is still regarded as up to the european standard. The truth is that, it is the worst hotel in my UK trip. First of all, it is dirty. After lying on the bed, the blanket is keeping my body itchy until I remove the blanket. Secondly, the staff is not friendly and helpful. The official check-out time is 10:30am. When we ask for check-out at 11am, just half an hour later than the official check-out time, they simply turn down my request. The truth is that, we can still see people check-out at 11am or later. They never try their best to suit customer's need. Thirdly, the hotel is noisy!! The noise can wake you up as early as 5am! Do you know what double room in this hotel is? They just simply putting 2 single beds together and creating a "bigger" bed! Simply speaking, if you want a hotel which is close to Paddinton station and if you do not mind small room, noisy environment, dirty blanket, unfriendly staff, go and pick this hotel.
Top Local Tips for London
The Original Tour London Sightseeing Bus This is a great way to get around London and "see" things. You can travel on any of their buses, hop on and off at any of their convenient stops.
London Taxis One of the biggest lessons I learned in London is the difference between black taxis and mini cabs. Black taxis are available all over the place but charge more and can be finicky about not wanting to take you what they consider to be a short distance. At Heathrow we could not get a black taxi to take us to our hotel 4 miles away - not enough money in it for them and they were not shy about saying so! If you can believe it we had to go back inside the terminal, find a phone number for a mini cab, and wait an hour in the cold for them to show up. It was extremely maddening to watch the black taxis just sit there lined up waiting for fares, and the captain of the taxi line refused to let a cab take us 4 miles to our hotel.
Tate modern Keep away. It is an exibition of the biggest swindle in human history. We walked around in amazement at the sheer audacity some people have to call these objects art. I have colourful drawings stuck to the front of my fridge done by my 3 year old grandson which are more worthy of inclusion. I can only say, I am glad I did`nt pay to go in.
