Very clean, all staff were friendly. More was very suitable (1 night stay) short walk to Hyde Park for WinterWonderland, round the corner from Paddington station. Shame we only walked that way on leaving - as many restaurants and bars. Would definitely return. Thank you for being so welcoming.

Stayed here for a week in October in room #13. Everything was fine overall during our stay. Unfortunately, my family of 4 all developed scabies (which is caused by mites burrowing into your skin causing very itchy bite-looking spots) from our stay there. I emailed the hotel twice about this, and no one replied to me. Very disappointed.

Have stayed in a few hotels on Sussex Gardens, this by far was the most modern! Key cards a lift and swanky reception area. Was welcomed with a smile and was quickly checked in! The only problem I had was getting into the room, as the lock was a tad temperamental. Breakfast was good small but well cooked, not a...

The room was clean and tidy, bathroom was a positive suprise. Paddington station was very close, like 300m. You could easily walk there. Breakfast was very good english breakfast. Staff was friendly and always there at the reception day and night. Windows in the room were quite thin. You could hear the cars and other noises from the street and...

This is a fairly basic hotel located in a block where all the 3-story buildings have been converted to small hotels. The room was quite small, but adequate; the bath was comparatively large and had a large luxurious tub! The location is quite good: walking distance from Paddington Station, and with easy access to bus routes and Tube stations that...
