The London Tube Would Be a Better Bet

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 16, 2008

As the title suggests, you'd find better accomodations in the Tube itself than at this pit of a hotel. Where to begin? Staff--horribly rude, unbearably slow, lazy, arrogant, and totally unaccomodating. Room--dirty, grungy, tiny (two people cannot fit in a double room), and a broken window. Bathroom--tiny and filthy. Facilities--no A/C, cannot make calls from the hotel at all (local or otherwise) except for to and from the reception desk. No payphone within a 5 min walk either. They have a lift, but it will fit two people without luggage, or one person with luggage. It is excruciatingly slow and very unreliable. Breakfast--not too much of a let down because we weren't expecting much anyway. Offered coffee, tea, rolls, sandwich meat and cheeses, cereal, hard-boiled eggs, and yogurt. Coffee was horrendous. Location--fantastic. Just 5 minutes from Paddington Tube and Train stations. Hard to get lost. If you like the Paddington area, choose another hotel--or stay in the Tube itself. ;-)

Now, you might think that I am just being totally picky, and may have never experienced accomodations in London before. Not so. This was my 4th time in London and have stayed at some decent places for about the same price, in the same area. My expectations were a small, clean room with friendly staff. I was not expecting a lift, nor was I expecting a typical American sized room, or for the staff to bend over backwards to accomodate my crazy whims. My expectations were very realistic, and were far from met.

Directions: Won't waste my time telling you how to get there. If you try to email them, they won't respond!
