The hotel is strategically placed, right across the street from Paddington Station. You can get there easily from any airport and then you're ready to go anywhere in the centre of London. The lining in my room were not very well cleaned and the hotel smelled at all time of either frying or cooking or... Anyway, the prices are really...

It is a nice, small hotel, conveniently located next to the underground station. The rooms and the bathroom are very small, but clean, so if you just need a place to sleep after the whole day of sightseeing this hotel will be a good choice. Very friendly and helpful hotel staff will make the stay even better.

We have 3 young children aged 5 and twins who are 3. We brought them down to London for a short 2 day trip in Feb half term. We went to the science museum first and got a taxi to Norfolk square for about £11.00 which was so much easier than the tube with 3 tired children! The hotel receptionist...

Arrived yesterday for two nights. Fantastic location - a hop, skip and a jump to underground station and bus stop. Rooms are a little snug but scrupulously clean with new bedding and curtains. Unfortunately we were woken in the early hours of the morning by another guest talking at the top of her voice. I spoke to the receptionist this...

I travel a lot in my profession and i love staying in hotels (and I'm sure my wife does too aa I'm a little messy). What i have never had to do, is book a hotel and ponder "Is this a hotel or a guesthouse?" Or "What makes a hotel a hotel and different from a guesthouse?" Anyway, after all...

This is a nice and affordable hotel with excellent location near Paddington station! The room was clean and quite modern, and the beds were comfortable. Bathroom was quite small but clean and tidy, however. Breakfast was lovely, and the staff was extremely helpful and wonderful! Good value for money!

A good value hotel in Paddington, near station. Rooms are all clean and are freshly decorated. Good selection of self service breakfast (both continental and cooked). The only down side is no lift and 4 flights of stairs, due to age/style of building.

This was my second stay here and was happy returning to this hotel. This time, I was unlucky to get a room on the 5th floor and hence had to contend lugging bags and myself up and down each time. But for this, everything else remained great! Great location, clean rooms, cheerful employees and adequate (but repetitive) breakfast...Ticked most boxes,...

Hotel is clean and well located a short walk from London Paddington. The hotel is fine for a one night stay but wouldn't recommend for longer as the rooms are small (even by London standards). Poor breakfast with bad quality sausages etc. Okay but not good.
