            • 0.8

              Close to Paddington station. Reception open 24h. No noise from street.

              Awful breakfast. Small rooms. Shower in the room, not in the bathroom. A LOT of noise from people climbing the wooden stairs above us, thought it would break on us.

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              Close to tube/train station. Convenient transport. Choices of restaurants.

              Room too small to be called a double room. Don't have space for luggages of 2 people.

            • Single
              6.2

              Location, value.

              Damp smell in bathroom, dirty windows, very basic breakfast.

            • Family with children
              5.4

              the bedroom was large with three singles &one double bed it was clean & the beds were comfortable. it was a fair price for four people by london standards, just a little attention to detail could have made it a hotel i would return to.

              the room was cold as the heating was on a timer that came on after midnight , not what you want. but a heater was provided on request which did warm up the room their was a large black damp patch on the wall near the ceiling , & the shower was coverd in black on the grouting so no one would use this as it looked dirty, a shame because as i told the man on the desk ,the whole thing could be put right for just a few pounds ,but it did make it look cheap and nasty. in fairness he did say he would go and check. the breakfast was continental ,when i was looking forward to a full english but i may have misread the details .

              Location

              Comfort is not good. Small rooms and not good bathrooms. Breakfast is not good.

            • Couple
              5.8

              Location and the depression of the shower.

              Shower drain was blocked, lights were not working - crucial because our room is in the basement so it was pretty dark.

            • Couple
              7.8

              Location was good as minimal walking required to reach the Tube

              The toilet space is small

              Good location. Breakfast was ok. Toast, butter, jam, cheese, ham, cornflakes, milk, yoghurt, tea and coffee.

              It was dirty. Bad beds. Very small room. Bad smell in the bathroom

              Lack of cooked breakfast. Toilet wobbly. Dirty towel on floor behind toilet

            • Couple
              4.2

              The breakfast was terrible and the staff was unfriendly. You could hear almost everything from the room above and the hallway which resulted in less sleep. We didn't have big expectations but to be able to sleep and meet friendly staff was expected.

              De ligging

              Staying in the Alexandra Hotel has been my worst hotel experience ever. They were rebuilding the hotel which was not as advertized. The rooms and other gast (mostly from eastern Europe) were so noisy that we had to buy earplugs to get a little bit of sleep. I complained about it but the receptionist couldn't make time to take some action. We booked a room with a badroom. Well it was almost imposible to take a normal shower without soaking the whole room. The actual space in the badroom was 50 x 30 cm And the toilet was almost under the shower. One last thing, If you put yoghurt at the breakfast table why is it warm. If you are a decent person don't go to this hotel.

            • Older travelers
              5.8

              It was handy to Paddington railway station, hospital, cafes, and an easy walk to Oxford St.shops and Hyde Park. A good location.

              Reception staff could be more welcoming, smile more... also the breakfast provided was of a poor standard. Their Understanding of English was at times unsure.

            • Group of friends
              6.2

              good situation - next to Paddington Station, easy to go to the city centre.
