Poor 2.0
Do not stay here! Filthy and uncomfortable!
I had low ecpectations since the place is rated a 2 star. But even still, this is the most disgusting hotel i have ever stayed in. When i arrived, the pillow and blanket were dirty. When i asked for a new blanket, they just gave me another dirty blanket. The place smells disgusting and i was freezing cold my entire stay because the window was broken and heating is centrally controlled. I understand travelling to london can be expensive, and a room is just to sleep in. But it is simply not worth the savings when you have to return to a room that makes your skin crawl! This place is filthy and a major rip off for what they are charging! When i arrived, there was a mysterious brown splatter on the wall that was never cleaned over my 4 night stay there. This is the most disgusting place i have ever stayed in my life!!

Poor 2.0
Far from being a hotel
Very bad choice in summer. Very small, uncomfortable, poorly ventilated rooms. No room service or help in checking in and luggage delivery. Very old room furniture and old building. No elevator and terrible stairs for upper floors.

Fair 4.0
Neither cheap nor cheerful
Nice setting, despite closeness to Paddington Station but poor overall value and room rate would have been expected to be much lower for size and presentation of room, style and condition of hotel and breakfast offering.
