We stayed in Caring hotel for 5 nights and found it adequate for our needs. We didn't spend much time there other than sleeping, and spent the days out touring London. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from Paddington, Bayswater, or Queensway stations (it is pretty much right in the middle of all of those) which was not... More

I was in london for 3 nights / 4 days and chose to stay at Caring Hotel , which was location wise awsome, dot on the centre of London, walking distance from tube station and Hydle Park.

We stayed there over the bank holiday weekend and mostly picked it for its great location. The reception staff was great. The room was quite basic and we would have loved to know there were no amenities provided such as shampoo and shower gel, which I thought would be essential in a hotel (because that's a hotel not a hostel...)....

A little bit oldfashioned hotel. We got triple room instead of twin so there was lots of space. Terribly poor shower and tiny sink, no body soap, shampoo, conditioner nor hair dryer. Very basic breakfast. Easy walk to Paddington and Queensway metro station. Suitable for 1-2 nights. Have some earplugs.

Stayed for one night and was pleasantly surprised at this very clean, comfortable hotel which was really in the budget prices. Staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. There are 3 tube stations all within about half a mile walk each. The hotel is in a quieter street so no noise through the night. Well recommended!

My wife and I stayed here in September 2013 (really) and loved it, even with the 5 floor climb to our room. Very charming and the staff are wonderful. Easy walking distance to Paddington Station, Kensington Garden and Palace. Good spot for a long or short stay.

We stayed here for an event at Hyde Park and it was perfectly located for that purpose. There are three underground stations within a 5 minute walk and Hyde Park is also a short stroll away. We didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel but we still got a good feel for the customer service. The young lady... More
