Stayed here for a week in October in room #13. Everything was fine overall during our stay. Unfortunately, my family of 4 all developed scabies (which is caused by mites burrowing into your skin causing very itchy bite-looking spots) from our stay there. I emailed the hotel twice about this, and no one replied to me. Very disappointed.

Have stayed in a few hotels on Sussex Gardens, this by far was the most modern! Key cards a lift and swanky reception area. Was welcomed with a smile and was quickly checked in! The only problem I had was getting into the room, as the lock was a tad temperamental. Breakfast was good small but well cooked, not a...

The rooms were very clean and comfortable with all the extras ie, extra pillows and towels , a safe for valuables and a very modern up to date bathroom . The staff...

Staff was friendly and always there at the reception day and night. Windows in the room were quite thin. You could hear the cars and other noises from the street and...

This is a fairly basic hotel located in a block where all the 3-story buildings have been converted to small hotels. The room was quite small, but adequate; the bath was comparatively large and had a large luxurious tub! The location is quite good: walking distance from Paddington Station, and with easy access to bus routes and Tube stations that...

This was just a one night stay as we were in transit and did not need to stay in London for long. The whole hotel could do with some updating of decor…I do not mean modern I mean fresh paint and new bed linens. Although I did expect the room to be smallish I was happy to see a nice...

We stayed in a family room for 3 on a Sunday evening after the Radio 2 Festival in a day at Hyde Park. The hotel is about 10-15 minutes walk from the Marble Arch end of Hyde Park and is situated on a pretty quiet road. The staff were very friendly on check in and at breakfast the next morning....
