The only good thing was the location, being very close to Paddington Station and well connected with buses as well. The rooms were very small and the water was cold and trickling from the shower. Breakfast was extremely poor.

Stayed there one night only which I booked this at the very last minute without checking this site first. Big mistake! The only positive comment I have is it's location - walking distance from Paddington. A very, very basic and scruffy room in a run down building. My door was damaged and looked as if it had been broken into....

Bed was comfy, wifi strong and free, close to Paddington station, and receptionists nice. But...I got the 4th floor room that smells like damp mold. No elevator. Thank goodness the weather was nice and street noise doesn't bother me so I could keep the window open the entire time - otherwise the smell would have been unbearable. I don't have...

We were supposed to stay here, but walked in and straight away the place had a terrible smell, we were shown three rooms.. One hadn't even been cleaned the others had hair on the bed, stained ceilings and just a disgusting condition. It's not 3 star.. We refused to stay, the girl on reception said we would get a refund,...
