Located in City of Westminster, this hotel is within a 15-minute walk of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. Royal Albert Hall and Marble Arch are also within 1 mi (2 km).
Awful layout across 5 floors - with no elevatorsPros: Location is handy to Paddington Station (10 min walk). My room had been "refreshed" sometime in the past few years and the bathroom was clean.Cons: I was given a room on the 4th floor, with no elevators and a couple of heavy suitcases. Staircases were narrow, different sizes and in one case curved, steep and with no handrail! The hallways were also narrow, oddly shaped and poorly signed. I got lost trying to navigate to my room several times.
The hotel is in the middle of major renovations with painting sheets and temporary coverings in the public areas of all floors.
Pros: Quick and easy, good locationCons: Only one pillow. Limited breakfast
