    Not a bad hotel, but the single star rating is because there was no hot water for a shower. Out of three nights there, there was only heated water on one occasion! Pretty poor for a London Hotel. Nice waffles though!More

    Everything was perfect. Norfolk Square is a nice place, near Paddington Station, Oxford Street and Hyde Park. The staff was really very kind, the room was very big and with a good bathroom as well (a strange thing in London!). I strongly recommend this hotel!
