The hotel is a 2 minute stroll from Paddington Station. It is across the road from lots of restaurants and newsagent type shops so can always nick out for snacks and things like that. We were out of the room majority for the holiday so the closeness to the underground station suited us.
Even though the hotel is very very tired it is spotlessly clean. Our towels and loo roll tea coffee sachets etc were changed and replaced each day. initially we had two single beds seperated by a small bedside table but when we moved that and joined the beds together (with bf) they were kept like that for the duration of the week.
Staff seemed pleasant and were happy to hold onto our bags on the last day while we wandered about. I know lots of hotels do this but thought this was good of them.
There was a full breakfast offered at something like £5.65 but can't comment on it because we went out for breakfast each day as we were so central
Window looked out onto brick wall and was home to lots of pigeons. We had to keep the blinds closed as it is possible for the room diagonally across from us to see right in so they kept blinds closed too for privacy. This didn't bother us but would have been nice to see some kind of view rather than brick wall and pigeon poop.
All in all we got what we paid for. This hotel provided us with a warm bed and a private bathroom with bath and shower and suited our needs. We stayed for 4 nights and this was ideal - would stay again for another short trip and would consider upgrading to a more fancier hotel if staying for much longer just because we didn't get the best nights sleep as we could hear people getting in the lift, the lift going up and down and lots of talking and stuff from next door. Didn't bother us too much as we were tired out from the days of walking a lot but would have been nicer if it was a bit more sound proof.
