We stayed one night in a family room for 4 people. It was very small room, with no place for luggage. The bathroom was very small too. the only good thing is the location on Norfolk's Square, near paddington station. But I wouldn't spend more time...

This was absolutely the WORST hotel I have ever stayed in. The light in the shared bathroom was not working, and even when I told the reception, they did nothing about it. So I had to shower in the dark. And the shower drain didn't drain and water backed up to form a small lake. Also, I was on the top floor - about a million uneven unsafe steps up. When I got there to check in my room was not made up and I had to wait. REALLY, spend a bit more money and stay somewhere else. ANYWHERE ELSE!!!!!!!!

The room was basic but enough, as I was there just to sleep and breakfast, I didn't need too much. The dining room was very nice and also the staff. I would recommend it.

I've been at the Ashley hotel for 2 nights and I was offered a single room at first as I'd booked. My room was situated on the last floor and it was extremely small, but I was warned about it. Another bad thing was that i couldnt get any hot water in the shower. Fortunately, when I informed staff about that I was provided another room and it was double. It was nice, and there was no problem with hot water. I enjoyed my staying at the Ashley because of the convenient position near the Paddington Station. There is a food shop and an internet cafe near the hotel. The breacfast was nice. Nice location and nice english brekfast.

I confirmed my reservation at the Ashley, but when I arrived I was sent to the Royal Eagle hotel (Supposedly a better one) but the room that I got was a twin room - NOT what I had reserved - the breakfast was NOT as advertised - the staff was NOT helpful - getting to the room was like running a maze. I was deeply disappointed in the entire thing and I will hesitate to use or recommend Venere again.

I've been at the Ashley hotel for 3 nights and I suggest this type of hotel only for single leisure tarvellers. It also indicated for young people not so vey fresh and clean but at the same time it's really cheap. Nice location and nice english brekfast.

Reading the past good comments from other cusotmers, the expecation was for a better service and room quality. I have found a sufficient service, clean and quietness of rooms, but just sufficient.

The Ashley Hotel is a cheap and cheerful place and reasonably good value for money. The location is excellent and the combination of price and location is the only real reason why you would stay there. The bathrooms are inadequate and the rooms are clean but threadbare.

It was a very nice hotel. Close by the station (Paddington), which is convenient. not to much traffic in the street. I will stay there again next time I go to London. They sure did meet my standard.

The small room with a shared bath was exactly what I ordered and needed. When I arrived, the woman on the desk was particularly helpful in providing an extra map and directions to a restaurant I had selected. They also had a convenient closet where I could store my bags after checkout while I visited the British Museum.

I have been returning to the Ashley since 1979 because the family have always recognised me and welcomed me back. The staff have always been friendly and helpful and the hotel is well located.
