    3/5

    I’m so conflicted by this hotel. It’s in a great neighborhood, the bed was comfy, and the bathroom was new and shower warm. But we were there for four nights, and the coffee mugs were NEVER changed out (despite us asking), the room was TINY - couldn’t even wheel the suitcase around the bed, and there were no drawers for storage. There was no counter space for even a makeup bag in the bathroom, we got attitude from the front desk for requesting fresh bath towels daily, and despite it being half empty, they couldn’t move us to a room overlooking the park (the woman at the front desk explained this was the “Expedia room”). Also, we arrived early (11 am ish) and the couple in front of us and then infuriatingly behind us got to check into their rooms early. Our host just said no come back after 2. Which while I understood, if you’re landing after a transatlantic flight and some people check in but not you it’s a big eye roll. But it is in a great area.

    Location was great near the tube and Paddington station. First room was decent size, but the shower was leaking and got half the room wet on our first night there. The room we were moved to was a downgrade: smaller and different bathroom and no storage. Staff was very nice and helpful.
