“Very nice, very friendly staff, I would stay again.”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

I stayed with my husband and son (3 years old) for 8 nights in a three bedded room on the first floor. The room was very quiet, clean and had all the comforts I could ask. English breakfast was very good and ready cooked, with a wide choice; every morning and night I asked for I bottle of hot milk for my son and it was immediately prepared.
The hotel is in a great position, Kensington Gardens is just one block away, as Paddington station, and the owner was very friendly.
I would stay there if visiting London again.

Reviewed 19 June 2011

We stayed here with my friend for 5 nights in June 2011.
There are several B&B’s around Paddington Station. We walked around the area asking the rates: Albro Hotel had vacant rooms and we got a twin room with 80 pounds per night.

The manager told us that we had to pay the whole amount of 400 pound up front, and they would accept only cash. This sounded very suspicious: why would they ask us something like this? Is there something wrong with the hotel and they want us to pay the whole amount before we notice the problem? Or do they think we’re some sort of criminals who will not pay the bill? (Not likely, because I gave my name, passport number and credit card number when we made the reservation.)
We agreed to pay the first night right away and the rest the next day if everything would be ok.

The room was in the 4th floor, no elevator. We were ok with that, but people with restricted mobility might want to get a room from the lower floors. The room was clean and nice. The temperature in the room was good and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom and the shower were clean. The bathroom floor was wooden, covered with thick plastic – a bit weird, but not uncomfortable.
The street in front of the hotel is quite busy, but the traffic noise didn’t bother us at night.

The breakfast was good. In the breakfast room you will be asked whether you’d like an English breakfast or a continental one. We tried both and they were both very nice. The breakfast ended at 9:00, which was a bit too early for us.

After one night we paid the rest of the amount. When leaving the place we asked for a receipt and got it.
We enjoyed our stay and would probably go back. The location was very nice, just one block from the Paddington Station. Considering the hotel prices in London the value was good. The only thing that left me wondering is why they want all the money paid up front. I see that other TripAdvisor users have paid attention to the same thing.
Fix this, continue the breakfast until 9:30 and it’s a lovely stay.

My cousin and I stayed here for four nights. The location is very good with nice restaurants within five minutes walk. Our room was clean. The beds are very good.
The host and staff are friendly and the breakfast room is cosy. We enjoyed the English breakfast every morning.
We can recommend this hotel.

We were here four days and everything was fine. Double room on the third floor was a small, very soft bed and small, but everything worked, the service cleaned up every day, breakfast was delicious and the family atmosphere. In Sussex Garden Street runs a lot of cars, who loves peace, he should have a room to the courtyard. Located in a prime location for visiting the city. Hotel managers are nice people, thanks for the nice visit. Yeah, definitely go to the Victoria pub, which is around the corner! Who sins, can use the Bible in the nightstand:-)

Reviewed 11 December 2010

When we arrived we were met by the manager who told us that there was a problem about our room as the central heating sýstem didn´t work properly. But in a very polite and competent way he let us chooze between 2 alternatives. And we were very satisfied by the way the problem was handled.
The full English breakfast was good and, the rooms (as we tried 2 of them) clean and comfortable and the manager very friendly and helpfull. We will certainly try to get a room here again next time we will go to London. Absolutely value for money.
