I just stayed at the Mercure London Paddington for 10 nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. For six of those nights, I had a group with me, and everyone had a very good experience at this hotel.
While the double rooms were a tad small, as other have commented, they were just as advertised on their website and on par with the size of most hotel rooms in Central London. The executive rooms were a bit larger and well-appointed. Most of all, the beds were very comfortable and the rooms and bathrooms very clean. Being next to Paddington Station, one would expect quite a bit of street noise, but I didn't hear much, if any, during my stay.
Especially impressive was the staff. Everyone was very accommodating and willing to help make our stay pleasant. Special thanks to Rupinder at the Reception Desk for all of her hard work! She was wonderful and I really appreciate everything she did to make the group comfortable.
I would say that the only area that needs improvement is the breakfast situation. The continental buffet is very limited, and those with breakfast included are able to order a hot breakfast off of a limited menu. Since the restaurant is open to the public, it was definitely crowded at times, and, one morning, I had to wait about 15 minutes for an open table. The wait staff was very nice, though, and offered me coffee in the hotel lobby while I waited.
Other than that, I recommend this hotel, and, given the opportunity, would definitely stay again.
