Fantastic Hotel! Perfect location! Stay Here!
Booked for three nights for a family trip to London. Arrived late and greeted nicely by the reception who was waiting for our arrival. Easy check in and ready visit the room. Nice they had an elevator after a long day travelling. Got to the room and it was an absolute breath of fresh air compared to other hotels I’ve stayed in. It’s was quite spacious for London, had its own bathroom which was large! The room was spotlessly clean! Nice wardrobe built in with a safe. Coffee/tea in the room with milk supplied. Beds were comfortable, clean and made daily. The Room was absolutely perfect! The person at the front desk in the morning was friendly local and always asked how our day was and what we were doing for the day. He was a great help on the knowledge how to get around the area too. Location is good for Paddington, hop on hop off busses and lots of shops and take away places. Plain and simple this is a 10/10 hotel, we will be back no question!! Thank you for making our trip a great experience!
