    Location

    No lift(third floor without lift with the luggage it's not so nice) . Noise from other rooms.No hot water.

    Fabulous

    Staff, position, convenience, easy transport.

    Insufficient ventilation in the bathroom has resulted in a stale smell. The grouting of the tiles was discoloured, which could be improved simplt using Dettol mould remover which is sold in a green bottle for less than £3. The beds were in need of renewal as you could feel the structure, but we slept all right.

    Guest rating

    I booked the hotel via the smokers-united website, but it turned out to be a non-smoking hotel so I stayed elsewhere and won't be back.

    Very good

    The location was very good, a few minutes walk from Paddington Station. The room was clean, each staff I spoke with did not display the typical "I hate my job, I don't care" attitude that is so typical in other places in the area...they were quite friendly and helpful.

    No elevator and the stairs were long and narrow...an elderly person would not make it. Very low water pressure up on the 4th floor in the tap and shower...I Had to use the shower head to fill the toilet tank in order to flush. Otherwise the facilities were brand new and very clean. It was overpriced (due to it being London Marathon weekend perhaps?).

    Nice personal and helpfull. Frukost personal very nice

    the beds are not confortable att all, I couldn´t sleep att all, they make sounds and move. You have to bring with you your own schampoo, For 5 persons family who stay 5 days we just got 2 små soap. The breakfast is good but lite and allways the same.
