"Nice hotel, close to the Paddington tube station. "
I stayed 7 nights in the hotel. Rooms are small but airy, natural lighting and hotel is on a quiet zone. Room has air conditioning (for summer) and heating for winter. A tea and coffee maker and free Wi-Fi. Small gestures like a bite of cookies every day in the room are a welcome addition.
Enjoyed the stay basically.......................... staff were extremely helpful ...offered advice for touring etc.
The lounge was not as available as we would have liked.........the bellmen were very helpful............even to the point of serving at the lounge. . The air conditioning in the room automatically turned down during the night.............hence hot through the early hours of he night.
we had a good experience apart from a mix up when we went for breakfast we signed our bill only to find the next day we were asked to go to reception regarding this to be told we were not required to do anything. we then received a letter asking us to go to reception which we did and gave details of our visa card, we were not asked for this when we arrived. We then received a phone call only half way through this conversation someone interrupted to say there was no problem. Our friends who were staying in a superior room were disappointed to see that the only difference between the rooms were they were on the 17th and we were on the 10th.
Okay, so while I loved the location, the room was rather tiny! Hotel is close to Bayswater and Queensway station which was perfect. In addition there are restaurants, supermarkets, and a mall on Queensway all within a three minute walk from hotel, hence you could go out at any point and buy what you wanted. The park is also a minute away from the hotel, it doesn't get better than that.
The breakfast was way too expensive and I recommend going elsewhere. The room was SO tiny it was hard to move around. The comforter on the bed did not fit well as the sides were short leading to the creation of a draft under the covers.
Toiletries that were provided so extremely basic with no lotion given. While there were during towels there were no wash cloths given.... No fridge, no microwave, and no iron. There was a kettle to make tea.

Really enjoyed staying here. Only drawback was the front desk staff who I found to be quite unfriendly. When I checked out after a week the man I dealt with didn't ask me how my stay was or even thank me for staying. I was pretty ticked off as I walked away after that.
This lively residential and business area borders Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens where you can stroll along canalside streets and check out the houseboats and historic Victorian homes. Plentiful shopping opportunities exist at Queensway and Oxford Street. Paddington Station, a 19th century building, provides a gateway to towns in the west of England, including Oxford, Windsor, Bath and Bristol.
