The rooms were the usual clean and sleek ones you expect from this chain; the double glazing ensured they were very quiet. The staff I encountered (mainly...

Many thanks for taking the time to review the hotel and for the great feedback provided. We are indeed at the back of Paddington Station and it's true that with the crossrail works around the station, Paddington is a bit of a tricky area to navigate in. The easiest to find us is from inside the station to follow along...

The hotel is pretty close to the Paddington railway station. That's what the map says, and it's also true --- given you know exactly how to get there from the station. Perhaps I underestimated the problem and came utterly unprepared, but it took me more than 45' with my rolling suitcase to find the hotel. I got stuck in a...

I stayed here with friends for a weekend in London, which otherwise was great. Honestly, I wish I didn't have anything negative to say about this hotel, because the location is excellent (right around the corner from Paddington station, just a 5-minute walk) and the rooms were adequate. However, unfortunately, I was quite unpleasantly surprised to find that the phone...
