 "excellent service and great rooms"
Reception and concierge are genuinely helpful and pleasant. Even the cleaning staff say hello with a smile. You feel like a guest here where other hotels can make you feel like an inconvenience. For business travel, wired and wireless internet in the rooms and a free leave your luggage facility makes a huge difference for a productive stay. Rooms are a decent size, beds comfortable, heating and cooling are adjustable, bathrooms clean. Pay a little more for a club room if you want a fridge and microwave and nice touches like fruit. You'll also get a small safe for valuables though the hotel feels entirely safe anyway. Location is good, in the heart of Paddington's hotel district, ten mins walk from the station and also from Lancaster Gate tube on the Central line which is the quickest route into town and into the City. A night bus from the West End stops almost outside, if you want to stay out after midnight when the tubes close.

 "Value and comfort... always with a smile."
I stayed for eight nights. The transport into central London and to & from the airport was very easy. The staff are all too willing to help with any problems incurred. The only downfall was an unreliable internet (wi-fi) service and TV service at times. I would definitely stay here again.

 "Good location close to the public transport"
Pros: Good location close to the public transport
Cons: On arrival at the hotel reception we have waited for more than 20minutes only to be informed in unpleasant way that hotel is overbooked and we need to be transfered to a sister hotel we have not expected to encounter a such problem in a 4 star hotel, unacceptable!
