    Yes the service bad

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Reception staff were fabulous.

    The toilet did smell a bit. We had a room right next to reception and the rooms aren't very sound proof so sleep quality wasn't the best. Also booked a twin and got given a double.

    Nothing basically, the location was good, close to bars, pubs, restaurants, paddington underground station, close to direct station to Heathrow airport, close to internet cafe.

    As I said nothing. I have spent 5 nights for €450 which mind me it was not cheap!!! In Paris was cheaper and much better than this crap of hotel. I was one of those who ignored the reviews and booked this hotel. Mind me don't get fancied with the name cause it is not Royal at all. Room was very small but really small, not lift to my room, I had to carry my luggage down to flight of stairs which are not safe. Walls total disaster, mattress.....oh crap I could feel every spring in the mattress getting into my body. Shower room was very smelly, windows won't open. Once they didn't do my bed, and linens although they say they change them everyday.....but they never do and I don't think that they do when someone check out!!!! Just do not book!!!

    The location was good

    The bathroom was mouldly the sink plug hole didn't open and bulbs were not working or even present. We complained about the sink not emptying and nothing was done.The breakfast was awful stale bread warm milk and juice not what I would expect from a contin breakfast. The whole hotel was shabby and not worth the money!

    nothing i've stayed in lots of hotels in that area but this is the worse. my daughter was told to leave breakfast room exactly at 9 30 while finishing her cup of coffee. they were supposed to be open till 9 30 but coffee etc was removed at 9 20

    everything room was dirty with fudge still on the floor when we checked in

    Superb

    The most noticed was the friendly stuff especially the receiption group.

    The strick closing time for the breakfast, even if you are already in before 9:30 and having your meal,they ask you to leave....!!!!

    Fabulous

    The staff were friendly, the room was clean and comfortable and the location was very centeral. All in all excellent value for money, i would stay here again and would recommend this hotel to others. Thanks.

    The only thing that could be improved was the breakfast. Boiled eggs was probably the best part of it. No fresh fruit, no yoghurts or wholemeal bread was available. Cereal was corn flakes or bran flakes, nothing else was on offer, that was about it.

    The positives were that I managed to get my own way after telling the member of staff at the reception that I refused to go to another hotel they had booked for me after 'overbooking' - a sign of poor organisation and bad management. The location is the best thing about this place.

    The room cost me £85 and there wasn't shower gel, a hair dryer, a comfortable bed, a view or a decent sized towel. The staff didn't seem to know what they were doing. Generally groggy. Overbooking drama. Having to leave your key at reception and worry all day that they have given your room away to an equally aggrieved customer - thank god I got there early.

    It was easily accessible in the hearth of London.

    Poor selection of food at breakfast, very small, dark, low ceiling room with the noise from other rooms. There weren't any pics on the wall or sg makes you feel a little bit pleasant.

    Nothing. You had to leave your key at the hotel reception which I have never in my life had to do before in any other hotel. The staff were rude and intrucive. I would never stay here again.

    As above. It was terrible and over priced. It is not a hotel more like a B &B or Guest House.

    Internal room (no external window), noisy

    Good

    Only one of the hotel staff was friendly! in a good location.

    The room was dirty, the spare pillows for the bed were yellow and stained looked like they never had been washed, our view from our window was the inside of the hotel! toilet was blocked first night! some wird chemical smell kept coming and going in the room every so often? smelled awfull whatever it was like burning hair!

    I will recommend not to stay in this hotel, the staffs are for good and dont know how to talk with the customer, and the cleanliness is very very bad, they are providing the water heater with rusted and full of dirtyness, and the soap/shampoo provided with expiry date even we complained abt the issues but no proper response.
