First thing to say is that it was actually a great bargain at only £50 a night for a double room booked through booking.com so I’m not actually complaining. However there’s a few things that travellers need to know before they book as it might spoil your stay depending what your priorities are.

Cheap if you only want somewhere to lay your head for a night.
It was clean as much as a run down hotel can look clean.
The bed was comfy after you mastered the art of getting in it.
Short walk from Paddington tube station so great for getting around London.
In a pretty square very near to restaurants/cafes. We found a lovely breakfast in nearby cafe and a couple of nice pubs to have a nightcap in.

I’d explained I had a bad back so prefer a bath to relax in after walking. Don’t think there is any baths as rooms are too small to accommodate. Not a problem in itself but they put us on the third floor (no lift) so felt like a mountain to me.
The room was tiny and it meant someone having to climb over the other to get/out of bed. (Again not necessarily a problem as long as you have a sense of humour and definitely not wise to have an argument before bed time)
The en-suite was even smaller. It was an ancient looking cubicle in the corner of the room that contained the wc, shower, and small sink. Again not so much a problem for me as I’m only 5ft but even I couldn’t sit on the loo without my knees practically touching the door and a foot in the shower space.
The reception was staffed 24/7 but they weren’t over friendly. Not rude either. (Just kind of there really)

For me personally if I just wanted to stay one night in central London at a bargain price I would book again but my partner may disagree.
