The Hotel is located just a five minute walk from Paddington Station, in a nice neighborhood. The people working the front desk are nice and friendly. There are no lifts, but that's not unusual. O.K., the room is small and the shower/bathroom are even smaller. Hodgepodge shelving, no closet, that happens, the price is low. AND THEN THE BED. A... More

We booked a weekend here only a week in advance for 8 people and got more than we expected! It is located in Paddington, which is quiet but a 2 minute walk from the tube. Being a few minute walk from Hyde Park, it is an ideal location! A classic English breakfast is included each morning which leaves you satisfied.... More

I stayed here for 15 nights straight in early SEP 2016 - a return for the 3rd time! The location cannot be beat: Just a few minutes walk from Paddington Station (Heathrow Connect plus numerous local trains) and a Tube station even closer. Even returning to the hotel late at night, the area was always populated by lots of "regular"... More

We wanted a clean, convenient, and safe place to sleep before our flight home. The bed was clean and comfortable. The bathroom looks like it was stolen from a cruise ship but it functioned okay. The front desk person was friendly and knew the area. Breakfast was good. Overall the place looked and felt tired and under-maintained. A bit noisy... More

The location of this hotel is very good for getting around London, but do not expect any luxury. The rooms are small and basic, there are no tea making facilities in the rooms, and only a small bar of soap is provided with one towel. The whole building could do with a make over, On the positive side the staff... More

Location is couple of minutes walking distance from Paddington (use Heathrow connect to come from airport). The underground is there too. We prefer to use public red double decker to get to Westminster area, or Tower of London. It takes maximum of half an hour, but you are looking around at the city. The hotel is by railroad station. That... More

Short walk to Paddington Station and connections to tube, train, and bus routes. Hotel is a converted house. Rooms are small but comfortable. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is fantastic. Lots of restaurants nearby.

Close proximity to Paddington Station, warm rooms, clean beds and rooms clean enough. Staff extremely friendly and very helpful. The breakfast it's cooked to order and is in with the room rate. There are a few rooms with en-suites and are generally clean.

Booked 3 nights here on recommendation of a friend. This is an old Victorian row house that is not quaint or romantic, just cramped and uncomfortable. No A/C, no cross ventilation. Room was in back and left unsafe leaving window open, but too stuffy to not. What was reserved as a twin had a double bed. Left after 1 night... More
