Quirky room, enjoyed the theme and would recommend for short stays in London.
Parking reasonable and room rate.
Eclectic Hotel! Definitely something different!
If you want somewhere unusual to stay and love eclectic, shabby chic, bohemian style this is the place for you.
It has an array of old pictures, ornaments, chandeliers and nik naks all over the place. We stayed in Chapter n Verse room which was a black and gold theme, it was like stepping back into Sherlock Holmes era. LOVED IT. Our only complaints would be to burn the mattress. as it was too old and you could feel every spring, we did get extra blankets to put under the sheets to try and solve this, which it did slightly but definitely new ones required. Breakfast is served to your room which was great for us as we like to casually ready and not ones for rushing into a breakfast room, it consists of cereal, muffin and croissant, which is great if you like all that but for us more continental foods (bread roll, cheese, yoghurt etc) would have been preferred.
It was a great hotel to stay in but to make it even more outstanding we suggest the owners just tweek a few minor details in each room, would go back though.
Very disappointing - better red than dead
White linen sheets were clean, however grey "army barrack-esque" throw was manky. Red throws on top were dirty. Stains on all the decorative pillows on bed. Bathroom cramped. Bathroom mirror light didn't work. Shower head disgustingly dirty. Spray was poor, and wasn't very accurate. Spray all over. Water booster in the shower was extremely noisy. I don't think it's possible to express in words how noisy. Continental breakfast consisted of two boxes of cornflakes, 2 cartons of foreign milk, warm orange juice cartons and 2 blueberry muffins. All left by the door. We requested breakfast for 8, and it seemed like everyone else did as the staircase and passageway was littered with trays. No idea how long they had been there. One bright note was no sign of the bed bugs I'd seen reports about.
Interesting hotel...ideal location..worth the price!
Very interesting hotel---not your average bland hotel.
Great location...got a good offer on the price-----so cant complain. Great location if you like Lebanese food. Lots of decoration in room---some not so clean. Pre fab bathrooms---suits the purpose---but the only draw back was water overflowing from shower into toilet area--not able to be fixed despite my saying so....no probs as I was the only user and they did clean it thoroughly for me to use the next day....but it would have been a problem if there was someone else to use the shower after me. Overall a decent experience.
Small & quirky
The Pavillion isn't like most London hotels - the rooms are small, quirky and all a bit off-the-wall in terms of styling.
That's reflected in the price and I'd struggle to argue you'd find reasonable accommodation in Central London for less. Accept that its not the norm and that's why you're paying less.
Great Place to Stay
I looked up this hotel before coming so I already knew it was going to be oldie worldie type place, with no elevator.
However I think that just added to it and it was a cool different place to stay. Walking into reception was cool and there were lots of things to look at, a lot of effort had been put into the decor of this hotel. Each room has a different name with a different theme; again adding to the excitement of this. We stayed in the flower power room and it was so cute and I loved all the quirky touches. The staff were very pleasant and very helpful. I would definitely be staying at this hotel again. Although it's not that luxurious it is very good value for money in terms of where it is and the quirkiness of it, everywhere was also clean, which is a bonus!
This is the sort of hotel we like...unusual, idiosyncratic yet with all the expected hotel standards.
If I can make one (and the only criticism) it is that I'd have liked the sheets and covers to be wider, for tucking in....but this is probably a personal matter. The decoration was an international journey in style, taste, adventure, and both allusion and illusion. The staff were so helpful and informative, the rate excellent value for a central hotel. It was pleasure staying, and we shall be coming back.
You get what you pay for, however security an issue!
Booked this room for a weekend away.
Location is good being a ten minute walk from Paddington Station. It was booked as it was cheap for such a central location (£60 per night on a weekend), and I guess you get what you pay for. My main problem is with the level of security for your room. You are asked to leave your key at reception, which I have no problem with, however they are then displayed on a peg board with the room name clearly labelled which anyone entering reception can access. This would have been fine if there was always someone in reception, however twice it was empty and on one occasion the receptionist was no where to be seen. There was also a grid showing which rooms were being used, easy pickings for an opportunist thief!. Yes there was CCTV however it was very basic and not good quality. The room was a little strange, however I was expecting something unusual so can't really criticize, however it was small. The bathroom was tiny and acted as a wet room. As my room was at the top of the hotel a water pressure booster was installed, however for the first couple of minutes it took to warm up this sounded like an aircraft taking off. The shower also was at a slightly strange angle and virtually impossible to stand fully under. Breakfast was left on a tray outside your room and consisted of a bowl of cereal, a muffin, a croissant and a glass of orange juice, adequate however eating in a small fairly dark bedroom was not overly pleasant. Overall the room was adequate, however it is marked down due to security issues!
Sort of OK.
An OK place to sleep at a reasonable cost.
The very small rooms are individually themed and mine was dark and heavy with red brocade and cushions. Sounded sort of interesting on the website, but on reflection, not my thing. The bathroom was clean but some kind of v small prefabricated plastic unit. The breakfast, left outside your door, was not great. But the room was clean and at least the window opened.
