Rooms are too small, but generally in London this is the situation... Otherwise the location is good and the hotel is quite.

We choose this hotel because of positive comments we heard about it and it was indeed a good choise: it is a modern hotel with clean, well equipped, quiet, neat rooms, nice bathroom. The hotel is not so far from Paddington station in a no through road, so not much traffic, though a motorway A40 is nearby; the surrounding area... More

Thank you for your review. We are indeed tucked away from the hustle and bussle of London whilst being in a very secure area (Paddington Central) with a security team operating 24 hours a day. For your next visit, I would certainly invite you to try the swimming pool and our leisure facilities: it's a great way to unwind after... More

In general we had a very good weekend stay in London at this hotel. The hotel choice was based upon previous good experience from staying at a different hotel in the same chain. Breakfast was great, room was good and reception staff very helpful. Interior in lobby and breakfastroom was also very modern and nice. Only "complaint" is that after... More

Yes, it was an asome internet line. But 15 pounds a day for internet a day? And if you want wi-fi as well.

Many thanks for your review. I am happy to read that youn like the hotel and facilities. Regarding Internet, we have a broadband system (higher bandwidth) and a Wifi network, but both systems are from different providers, which is why two charges are generated if you use both systems.

Stayed for a week on business. Was in one of the executive rooms - although it did not look particularly executive to me. Rates were within budget. Room service options were limited but fine.

The word romantic never came to mind during my visits here... But this hotel is a brand new building which has nice facilities, a small but rather good training room, pool and sauna and a nice breakfast buffet.
