2/10 Poor

Not worth it.
Water isn't drinkable in the room and you have to buy it in the lobby. They charged me nearly £100 extra for day number two despite the price being listed. The location and staff are nice though.

Quick one night
Room was fine. Originally receptionist was helpful but checkout reception was rude and rushed me out the door before I could ask for help. Room was small but fit to price.

Short and uncomfortable stay
Great location, plenty of public transport connections within walking distance, the hotel is easy to find. The interior is run down, out of date and could do with a refurbishment. My general impression was that comfort of guests is not a priority. I booked the 10 sqf room which is literally cupboard size. The room was very cold (especially the shower) until the central heating was turned on in the evening (cannot be controlled in each room individually). The walls are paper thin, noise filters through easily from the surrounding rooms. Reception staff was efficinet but not friendly. Luckily I only booked for one night.

Traditional Terrance London Hotel
Traditional Terrance London Hotel. It was a little tired, but nothing to worry about. Breakfast was good. If you have a basement room, be aware that you get the rumbling of the tube below as they pass under.

10/10 Exceptional

This was my second stay in Shakespeare Hotel. I like it because I find the staff very warm and I feel comfortable. The hotel is centrally located and I can get access to bus or tube very easily. The Paddington Station just a minute away. There are hosts of convenience stores and restaurants for all the supplies and food one might need.
