8/10 Very Good

Convenient location. Will be suitable for youth as no lift in the hotel
2-night family trip
Verified guest review

2/10 Poor

Worst hotel of my life, far from the cheapest.
The room was up four flights of stairs, which isn't the end of the world. However the stairs were incredibly narrow and dangerous. The shower in the room had zero water pressure, the water just fell out of the shower head. When I asked the front desk about this they said "it's just the time of day, probably everyone else was showering too". The "mattress" is an inch thick pad, the bed literally bruised my body. Sound from the street is incredibly loud, even on the fifth floor.

6/10 Good

Fine for solo travelers who are on a budget.
Cheap stay if on a budget. It’s a place to sleep and that’s about it. The hotel is in a great location right next to Paddington train station (literally a 2 min walk). However, please know that the entire hotel shakes and rumbles when the Tube runs (about every 5-10 mins until about midnight). Definitely do not stay on the first floor. The staff was kind and are willing to hold your luggage after checkout. NOTE: the tap water is not drinkable. Be sure to bring bottled water!
