                it is clean and newly reinovated and walking distance from the heart of the city hydepark.

                I give the reception the reservatrion number for 4 rooms and they told me that the system shows only 3 rooms? it is noisy, you could hear tv of other room and walking in the room above. no swiming pool and the mini gym was closed.

              • Single
                7.8

                The rooms were quite clean, bathroom was great, which I wasn't used to in this price range hotels. Will probably stay there next time as well.

                It would be great if rooms were larger but since it's not a holiday resort, no problems at all.

              • Couple
                7.4

                I Like The Location Of The Hotel and the cleaness of the room. in addition to the good house keeping.

                I didn't like the noise where I can hear from distance in the corridor.

              • Single
                6.2

                Location is rather good. Next to center

                Do not stay at basement fllor - rooms without windows, bad ventilation. Breakfast is poor for 15 GBP.

                It is location, clean, quite and comfortable.

                Air condition is somehow upset and the internet as well.

              • Couple
                8.8

                We really enjoyed our stay, the hotel had everything we needed - internet in the room, gym, large flat screen tv well placed at the end of the bed and even shaving and dental kits on request, as we forgot to bring these.

                The room was quite small, and very hot. We couldn't control the air conditioning ourselves as it was controlled centrally, so we had to ring down to reception to ask them to turn it on. I would wake up early in the morning due to the heat, as the air conditioning would get switched off again during the night. Other than this though, the hotel was very nice.

                The room was really clean and the emplyes were very nice people!

              • Single
                4.6

                Not a lot. Very disappointing.

                The staff couldn't find my booking when I arrived so had to re-do it and then charged me an extra night to my credit card which I then had to get refunded. The Internet connection didn't work. Room very small and in the basement with no window to the outside.

              • Single
                8.2

                The hotel is a good choice for the value for money especially for this location. Clean room and nice design.

                The rooms are small compare to Europe ones and some room are very tiny that you may can not turn inside the room (1m x 2m).

              • Single
                9.2

                The room although compact, was very well equipped, clean, comfortable and the fittings were to a high standard. There were plenty of towells in the bathroom, which was very nicely decorated if a little small. I was relieved to find that the quality of the room matched my expectations from the pictures I'd seen on the website. The Hotel was conveniently placed for access to local pubs and restaurants for food, with a cash machine and convenience shops within 5 minutes walk.

                I could only get a couple of channels on the widescreen TV in my room. It would be nice if the hotel were able to provide a simple evening food selection. I was staying at the hotel alone, and so my only choices for an evening meal was either to eat out, or order a pizza from the Chicago town pizza company - which the receptionist was able to order for me. I had to pay cash to the courier who delivered the pizza though, and it would have been more convenient had I been able to add the food to my room bill.

                This hotel is great. While the rooms are a tad small they are really well furnished and very comfortable. The location is excellent, making this a very pleasant base from which to get around London. I have stayed here a few times now and I highly recommend it.

              • Family with children
                7.0

                The staff was very forthcoming. When our baby was falling sick due to badly placed air conditioning in a tiny room, they moved us to a different, better room. In addition, we did not get charged for a better room in the end.

                The hotel had tiny rooms, many of them having windows only to the corridor. This did not allow to refresh air in the room. The air conditioning because of the small size of the room was blowing directly onto the bed and was really bad for health. However, without air conditioning it was like in sauna within half an hour there.

              • Single
                7.4

                All hotel staff was very friendly, polite and helpful.

                The room was extremely small (the smallest I have ever seen in a hotel) and therefore felt claustrophobic. The shower cubicle was even smaller and it was almost impossible to turn around in it. I would not chose the hotel again due to this.

                OK location, good for price

                The fitness room is very small, no weights and TV

                This hotel was in a perfect location for my visit to London being near Paddington and the Mayfair conference centre.

                The room however was small was it really deluxe? And the hotel is situated on a busy road. No evening food facilities in the hotel is a disappointment however there is plenty of options within 5 minutes walk of the hotel but when you wnat room service its not quiet the same.
