Good 7.0 From 315 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Excellent location with very few downsides.
Overall I had a nice stay here. The room was very cute and clean. The staff was very, very nice and the location was exceptional (literal steps from the train and bus). A few very minor down sides. My room was right next to the stairs that led down to breakfast, so in the morning it was very loud. Additionally, as a vegan, coffee was the only thing available to me for breakfast, so that was a bit of a bummer. The water took literal minutes to heat up, but when it did it was fine. Overall, a decent place to stay for the price. I would recommend this property.

Bare bones, basic-You get what you (don’t) pay for
We stayed one night. Would not have stayed longer. Close to Paddington. Room was noisy due to underground. But I was so tired it didn’t matter. Staff was friendly. Breakfast ok. I did like the fresh made waffles but the coffee was horrible. No potable water. Really? For London prices you get what you pay for. But it suited our needs. Location is convenient. Decor is charming.

Good value for money
Considering the price, this hotel is really good. Just below average standard and much cheaper. So this is a good value for money.
Pontus, us1 night trip
Poor 2.0
Bare minimum of a hotel
Bathroom was in poor condition and the bed was even worse. The bed had broken springs and the pillows were horribly lumpy. There was a group of students staying in the hotel and they were running up and down the stairs all night despite noise complaints.

Good place
Great B&B style hotel, for a solo person works perfect. Just know no lift so be ready to carry your bags up the stairs.

Cute and convenient location
It was close by the Paddington train and underground stations and also bus stops, eating places right around the corner.

Very Good 8.0
Great location, good breakfast, mediocre WiFi
The hotel is in a great location, the staff were friendly and the WiFi was mediocre. The breakfast was simple, but good. I liked the eggs very much. Check-in was quick, and they even let us in our room almost 30 minutes before check-in time. One thing that rubbed me the wrong way (not the staff's fault) was that the bathrooms in the lobby didn't have potable water, and the only water available was from a vending machine. You had to pay, of course. Having water at the front would be a very simple way to make the place more welcoming.
Andres, us2 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Excellent locale, but lots of train rumble.
2 blocks from Paddington Station/Heathrow Express. Plenty of choices for sit down food within 3 square block area. Can catch hop on buses 1 block away. Free breakfast choices were good. No A/C--ask for circular fan. No washcloth--bring own. No Kleenex--bring own. Do have mini-refrigerators. CANNOT drink room tap water like in Mexico. Have to use bottled water to drink from faucet + brush teeth with it. Lots of rumble from 5am to 2am every 7-10 minutes as hotel is near underground Metro. Will keep you awake at night. Tv satellite channels were scrambled (did not work) 1 out of 2 nite stay.
