Location near Paddington Station, Big Bus stop, and pubs/ souvenir shopping was good. However, no air conditioning and bathroom was VERY small. No elevator.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Fist night we had to sleep in a basement room, which was not as shown in pictures. Electrical outlets failing, and a constant noise/vibration every two minutes from Paddleton train station. Next day we asked to move to an upper level and they moved us to 4th floor.. the bad thing about this is that they don’t have elevator and just narrow stairs. So you can imagine handling luggage back and forth. The room was ok, although walls dirty and TV not working not the shower hanger. The only good thing about this hotel was the breakfast, complete and delicious. I don't think this hotel should get two stars…

4/5 Good

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Staff & service
When selecting a property we looked at many different hotels. The Shakespeare fit into our budget and was as we expected. It’s nothing fancy but the staff are lovely, very smiley and welcoming. We arrived early and were able to leave our bags in the office while we started exploring. All was safe and secure. The room is basic but very clean and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was small but shower was nice . Only downside for us was that the temperature in London was 30 and as there are no fans or AC the room was incredibly hot and uncomfortable …. More our bad luck than the fault of the hotel. The breakfast was slices of ham / cheese , toast , tinned fruit and cookies. I’m not a breakfast fan in general so it was fine for me. There are other breakfast places at the end of the street for people looking for a nicer breakfast.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Any hotel that has non potable water posted in every bathroom should not be doing business. Clean up the pipes or whatever is causing this issue. Super noisy and the staff was suspicious of everything. Never had to leave a deposit for a fan in all the weeks of travel we have done overseas Sorry but this place gets a thumbs down
