      It's a centrally located hotel, clean, good value for money considering location.

    • Family with children

      Perfect location, close to underground. Nice, quiet neighbourhood.

      A bit oldfashioned but has got everything you need for a citytrip.

      • Average rating
    • Family with children

      The Hotel is well positioned near Hyde Park and close to shopping and transport. It is clean and quiet with quite good service levels. We stayed in a suite with two adults and two children and it had plenty of room. Breakfast was adequate and the staff attentive. Reception staff were very helpful.

      Rooms on the higher levels were a little hot and the A/C in the room not working for cool. Possibly not a problem in London however it did get quite warm in the room at night.

    • Family with children

      This is the third time that we have stayed here and whilst it appears to look the same there are always subtle improvements to the decor. The staff are always friendly and willing to help. There always seems to be another staircase to discover to take you to a different part of the hotel and never fails to remind me of Agatha Christies' "At Bertrams Hotel" always a favourite book.

    • Family with children

      It was quiet yet central and near buses and subway, we were a family with three children and they managed to give us a spacey familyroom with fridge.

      The fan was very loud and in the one in the bathroom was in such a poor condition that it couldn't handle a shower. It was damp and had a strange smell

    • Family with children

      This was my second stay at the hotel. Good and quiet location. The bus stop and two tube stations near. Close to Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park. The staff polite. The room nice and clean and not too small. Continental breakfast good.

      This time our room was on the basement floor, not on the ground floor as they said. Otherwise the room was nice enough.

      • Average rating
    • Older travelers

      It is close to the tube and bus stops.It is opposite to Hyde park and it's nice for a walk.

      We missed the ham at breakfast and cheese we saw it only once in 3 days.

      • Average rating
    • Family with children

      It is conveniently located, the stuff is friendly, the breakfast is better than many other places.

      It seems a little behind on maintenance, the main elevator not working, the bathtub clogged a bit.

    • Single

      The location and specific neighborhood is excellent -- a short walk from Paddington, in view of Hyde Park.

      While perfectly adequate, clean, and comfortable, the interior was old without charm. If your focus is on what's outside in London, it's great.

      • Average rating
    • Family with children

      Nicely located,close to Hyde Park which is an oasis in the city!

      Staff not overly friendly or helpful, but adequate. Television in room needs updating. Also the bathroom would benefit from redecoration.

      • Average rating
    • Older travelers

      The hot water system was very dangerous. It was hard work adjusting the shower temperature and it could change on you without warning. There is a risk you could get badly scalded.

    • Group of friends

      Proximity to Hyde Park and tube station, spacious rooms, clean and tidy.

      The hotel was a bit tired. All the paintwork and furniture needs painting or replacing, carpets need replacing and floors are uneven.

      • Average rating
    • Couple

      Location of the hotel. Sympathy of the ladies at breakfast.

      Bad assistence to costumers - the room and spoons were not that clean, there were no batteries on the remote, and they gave us new cuttelery, one still not clean and didn't fix the battery issue. The room was not very confortable, altough it was expensive.
