We stayed here last year and the experience still feels like yesterday, quite literally, I still feel the crawling where the weird and very persistent rash was that I got as a token of our stay. On the first night I woke up to a mutantly large rat forcing entry into my handbag for the bag of nuts I had...

Stayed 2 nights with my wife to visit family, was very cheap compared to other hotels, decent room, nice staff, clean, very good location, station round the corner, shopping in walking distance, restaurants very near also. Happy about service for what we paid.

I stayed here for a week with my friends visit in London over Christmas. It's a a wonderfully friendly place at such a good price of the staff so helpful and giving me a map with discounts for London. Will definitely come back next time I'm in London has saved money to spend eating out.

A never ending narrowing staircase was reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland as well as bed bugs that put wild beetles to shame. My room door was about 4ft high and...

I visited this hotel with 2 friends of mine for bonfire night, we didn't want to spend much as we were only there for two nights. We managed to do so much more for the price we paid because the location was amazing right in the middle of Paddington, even had breakfast included, we Saw the fireworks, we literally walked...

Disgusting 'family room' in a damp smelly basement. 4 different sized single beds, toilet didn't flush, TV was stuck on bbc2 and no remote available, fridge no where near a plug socket, no drink facilities, just awful!!!! Hoping breakfast could start us off for a busy day in London but a dingy room with small tables and nasty plastic chairs...
