"Save your money and pick another hotel" Kingsway Park Tip by trock001

Kingsway Park, London: 265 reviews and 0 photos

We were promised a ground level room but was assigned a 3rd floor room with no lift being available. The stairs were very steep and narrow. The only telephone in the room was in a drawer and had no connections. The shower pressure was almost nonexistent. The mattress was terrible and the manager refused to do anything about it. Each description about the hotel said they had wi-fi but we had no signal, the clerk suggested that we pirate the signal from the next door hotel. The manager said that a technician was working on the wi-fi but over a period of 6 days there never was a signal nor any indication of a technician. While there was coffee and tea in the room the hot water pot did not work. There are many similar priced hotels in the Paddington area and I suggest that you find another choice.

Unique Qualities: The hotel has been recently painted and the flat screen TV had a good signal. There are many ethnic restaurants in the area that are reasonably priced for London. It is very easy to get to Heathrow airport from this hotel via Paddington Station.
