    Good

    Location. Staff helpful. We were able to leave our bags for several hours after checkout while we went out before leaving the city.

    Room small, dark. Television wouldn't turn on without staff help (!). And the bathroom was approximately the size of an aeroplane washroom with an equally small shower added. Breakfast disappointing - could have been improved easily by the inclusion of whole wheat toast and real cheese or some fresh fruit. View out window was walls and plumbing pipes from what were probably similarly tiny rooms. Too expensive for what we got.

    Very good

    Very convenient for those arriving in London via Paddington station. Easy to get to tourist places from this location. Lots of amenities nearby - restaurants, souvenir shops, mainline trains and underground, only a couple of blocks from Kensington Gardens.

    Breakfast disappointing. No cooked breakfast, but even the cold one could have been improved quite easily, and relatively inexpensively from the hotel's point of view, by providing whole wheat as well as white toast, and perhaps real cheese instead of processed slices. There was sufficient quantity, however. In the rooms it would have been nice to have a bathmat, and a hook to hang clothes or towel while showering.

    Excellent location - very reasonably priced - not luxurious but clean and comfortable.

    Fabulous

    Very nice staff, good breakfast, rooms were clean and at good location.

    there was some noise from other rooms (thin walls), and some noise from the rebuilding of the hotel.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    Easy access (24 hour reception), great location and comfortable room. Didn't hear noise from other rooms. Fresh towels every day.

    The breakfast ends too early, we didn't make it there at all.

    Very good

    I've stayed 3 times at the Alexandra Hotel but the 3rd time was the best, perhaps because we had a master bedroom which was superior to the previous times. The receptionist (a European don't know his name) was excellent and has a good memory. Overall I would stay again as it is a reasonable hotel in a very good location for travelling around London and near Paddington which has excellent train connections.

    Previous times the first room was not satisfactory, bathroom very poor (this was initially booked by the airline I was travelling with and I upgraded the room when I booked additional days.

    The hotel was nothing like we expected, the room we were given looked nothing like we had seen on the bookins site... It was very dirty,noisy and lack of heating made it a very cold and uncomfortable stay!... Really bad value for money!!!

    Alexandra hotel was always a good budget hotel with perfect service and pleasant cosy rooms. I have been many times there. However, this year, something has changed. The accommodation was very poor, the rooms very, very small. The bed even did not have a duvet, only a bed sheet (imagine, we were there in middle October). I am not going to return there.

    The services and level of this hotel are not proportional to the price. You can get a betterr accommodation for a better price in this area.

    The staff especially Mohammed were very helpful, Mohammed went out of his way to help us. and especially as the water had been cut off at one period to the hotel.

    The room was clean but when we first arrived there were a number of items that did not work, after talking to Mohammed they were fixed

    I liked the location, it was ideal for what we had planned.

    I did not like the bathroom which was basically no bigger than a double shower cubicle yet it contained a toilet, sink and a shower. I also thought it very poor that they did not provide any shampoo. I have never stayed anywhere where a sachet of shampoo was not available.

    Fabulous

    Fantastic location for Paddington station. Room relatively spacious, windows that could safely be left open, no problem leaving luggage at reception on final day.

    Soggy toast at breakfast

    Exceptional

    Chosen due to competitive price and location near Paddington tube station. Excellent value for money, clean and comfortable bed and room generally. Good basic breakfast and quick self-service. Friendly efficient staff.

    Initially was put in a room below street level, very spooky, across the road. Asked for a different room in the main hotel and was given one at ground level, which was excellent.
