The Rom was small but ok, the beds was alright, and the bathroom very nice!. We mist a public area at the hotell, were we and our friends could meet. The breakfast was just bad,, the eggs overcooked, and just ham to the bread one day of our stay at the hotel. I think we prefer an other hotel mest timme we will visit London!

A very tiny room where the only possible way to open a suitcase was to place it. on top of the beds. Bathroom ok. A lightbulb was missing in the bedlamp and was not replaced until the second time we asked for it, despite the fact that we travled with small children. The breakfast was very poor. We decided after the first morning to eat elsewhere even though it was included in our price. The location was good, only a few minutes walk from Paddington station.

The hotel had a very good location, just 3 minutes to Paddington station, and 10 minutes to Hyde Park. Its price was great. The problem is that it was so packed with no place to put the bag and it had no wardrobe. The wireless did not work in the room but did in the common room. Nevertheless, I would be back for the price.

I have stayed in several hotels in London,but this hotel was one of the hotels I neverr vant to visit again!The breakfastroom was undescribable,- placed in the basement,dark,filthy and some of the guests had to eat their breakfast at the biljard-table,or just keep their plates on their knees!

The hotel was over booked. They offer us an apartment 10 minutes walk away. They have also missspelled the dates. Therefore we had to move before the last night. Their handle of their over booking was not satisfied. We ask for refund but without success.

We got off to a bad start. First they couldn't find our names, and was almost just thrown out, until I took a look at the list myself and easily found it. Then the elevator didn't work- 4 floors with crutches and luggagge, no help! The rooom was dirty and small, and right next to the elevator that of course started to work again during the evening and very noisely so... Tv and hair-dryer did not work. Worst of all was the shower-curtain smelling so strong of urin, it was impossible to be in the toilet unless you held your breath. Staff was not very friendly either... For only 2 nights we held it out, but needless to say, I wont be returning to this hotel. Obs-they make you pay the whole amount at arrival (before you even see the room of course..), not at departure as this site says. And unless you pay cash,they add an extra fee.

The hotel advertised triple rooms, there were only double rooms with 1 double bed and 1 extra bed squeezed in. The breakfastroom was tiny. We had to spend the first night in a tiny room at the 5 floor of a neighbouring building without a lift. The room was so small we had to place our luggage in the bathroom.

You can't be a snob visiting London on lowbudget. After reading a lot of guestrewievs we had low expectations and did'nt trust all nice pictures on booking sites. All over we were satisfied with Ascot - the service was okey.They served breakfast and the location was good. If they had renovated the bathrooms and open the restaurant pictured at their website they had got a better score. Because of price and location we will book at Ascot later visit. We stayed for three nights.

Hôtel très décevant. Très loin du 3 étoiles. Aspect peu ragoûtant de la chambre et des parties communes, pas d'eau chaude et de lumière au lavabo, trous dans le mur, ménage superficiel, fenêtres fermant mal, chambre surchauffée, salle de petit déjeuner glauque au sous-sol et surtout trop petite. Le restau présenté en photo était toujours vide. Les photos sont très trompeuses. Seuls points positifs : l'emplacement de l'hôtel et son excellente desserte par les bus et le métro. Les draps étaient propres et les serviettes changées. Bref, valable pour un court séjour si on n'est pas trop exigeant !

The actual hotel was really well located, right next to Paddington station. Rooms and breakfast were ok. On the whole it would have been a great stay except for the reception staff who were very unfriendly and unhelpful. When we booked a free evening meal was included, however getting this meal was more effort than it was worth, we would have felt better if it hadn't been included. If you can handle the staff, the place was actually ok.

We arranged to stay at the hotel for two nights, and part of the deal was for a free meal. We went to claim our free meal and waited 15 minutes before leaving as we were not served. The hotel is rated with 3 stars, which I think is over rated. We had no where to sit at breakfast. The room was so warm we had to sleep with the window open and listen to the traffic all night. As we had a microwave, fridge and hob, the hotel must be used for people that are mafe homeless and awaiting to be accommodated by the council. The only thing right with it was the location.

L'albergo sarebbe anche stato accettabile, camera abbastanza spaziosa, televisione con telecomando (che abbiamo dovuto chiedere alla reception, bagno abbastanza in ordine). Però il letto era scomodo, piccolo e cigolava di continuo, sentivamo ogni volta che la persona nella stanza sopra di noi si girava, quindi immagino che tutti i letti fossero così. E poi il lato più triste era la colazione. Un albergo con tante stanze ed una breakfast room angusta con una decina di tavoli, e su alcuni dei quali era impossibile posare alcunché perché dondolavano come un'altalena. Ogni mattina c'era la fila di gente che aspettava di sedersi, qualche volta esasperati abbiamo preferito far colazione fuori. Il personale era abbastanza gentile. Non era disponibile del latte caldo, ma su richiesta ce lo hanno scaldato tutti i giorni. Comunque mi sarei aspettato di più...

This hotel was probably one of the worst hotels we have ever stayed at. People at reception were extremely rude. We arrived at our hotel earlier than the check in time which was indicated on the website being at 1pm, but they insisted that it stated 2pm. They refused to allow us to get a room earlier and insisted that we place our luggages in their so called 'luggage storage area', which was a very small closet that was over packed with luggages - ours couldn't even fit in. When arriving at the check in time (2pm), we went up to our room which was dirty, toilet wasn't working, filthy sheets on the bed. I was very upset to find out that they didn't even clean the room! Not to mention that they gave us a room with two single beds after reserving a double because we are a married couple. After putting up a fight with the receptionist, we had our room changed. Thank goodness we only stayed there one night! Also, there was NO air conditioning in any of the rooms. I will never stay at this hotel again, nor will I ever suggest this hotel to anyone I know. I would suggest to Venere.com to take this hotel off its website.

La camera, al quarto piano senza ascensore, era talmente minuscola che non c'era nemmeno la possibilità di tenere aperte le valigie. Ovviamente non c'erano nè comodini, nè armadio. In compenso una buona quantità di polvere.
