                    This place is really close to everything in Paddington. The tube is across the road and many pubs and eating venues are within a minutes’ walk from the front door. There is a nice area just outside the hotel where you can sit on a park bench and relax.

                    There is no lift so if you have a lot of baggage, you will find it taxing getting to your room if it is on an upper level, especially the third or fourth level.

                    3.8

                    This hotel is a shocker, we had booked for 3 nights and jumped ship after 1 harrowing night, we had 5 beds in one tiny room 3 of us were itchy all night, fire alarm went off at around 1am for no reason, bathroom was just plain dirty, shower rose spread water everywhere but on you, all this may be okay for a backpacker if the price was right but we paid around $750 aud which was not a budject price. We went around the corner to mercure hotel and had 2 great nights in a clean modern and friendly well run hotel for $480 which was terrific value considering that was 2 rooms, the mercure even has a lift. Also shakespeare refused any refund even for 3rd night which was a disgrace avoid it at all costs.

                    The position is very good. 100 meter away from tube ( Circle Line, District and Bakerloo ).

                    Bathroom is little, but we was four friends in a room.

                    Location was good, shower was hot, breakfast was good. Plenty of places to eat and drink. Was working in London so was comparatively cheap and practical. Would not stay for pleasure or family holiday.

                    Room was quite shabby, small bathroom, no remote for the tv. Was working in London so was comparatively cheap and practical. Would not stay for pleasure or family holiday.

                    sewage smell in the room. breakfast non-existant. rude staff (especially the breakfast lady). one day no water supply (they offered showers in a building across the street). perfect location though.

                    The location is good. Large room. Ideal for stays where he spends a few hours in the room.

                    Small bathroom. With the fan that throws the smell to the room. The breakfast room is small, with little variety.
