Very nice staff. It's a good hotel, nothing exciting, but the location is perfect. It is a safe area with great restaurants and 2 minutes from Paddington Station. They provide all the basic things you need for your stay. It is a very old building, so it has charm, but it is loud from people walking above you, and the room gets very warm, and sometimes the windows are hard to open. The beds are ok but too hard for me, and the pillows are thin and lumpy. The pillows were my biggest issue. What a weird place to cut corners. I asked for different ones, but they said that they were all the same. They were very uncomfortable. The room was very small, comparable to most hotel rooms in London, but we knew that going in, so it did not bother us. However, they do make good use of the space.

I went to London with my kid to see two shows. I was very happy to get an offer for a late check out two days before arrival. that was extremely helpful as we were flying back late pm. Also the price for the late check out was very fair. This is my second time at this hotel and I really like it. Great location and beautiful property. I will be back in December. thanks for looking after us! Dominic
