Five of us stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Our room was in the basement (we did not mind) we know budget hotels in London have rooms in the basement. The room was large with a window, it was clean with comfortable beds. The receptionist was very helpful with directions, he also gave us free maps. The breakfast start... More

After searching for a cheap hotel in central London we found the Continental. It is just around the corner from Paddington station and bus stops, many shops, pubs and restaurants nearby. The accommodation is basic but clean, the staff friendly and helpful. Our twin room on the 3rd floor was clean, the size is the same like other hotels in... More

We stayed with my family in the continental hotel for 4 nights. The hotel is quite central only few minutes walk to oxford street and hyde park. Our room was spacious, clean, clean sheets and with a window overlooking the beautiful garden. The breakfast is continental and it is decent. We will come back as we were very pleased.

Given the very cheap price for the hotel (and the many, many negative reviews) we were prepared for the hotel to be absolutely horrible. It wasn't, though. You pay for a cheap hotel, you get a very worn down, old and neglected hotel room, which we could accept, but we weren't exactly impressed with. It is extremely basic. We got... More

The location is great, staff friendly and clean bed linen. However the shower still had the remains of some one shaving, the carpet hadn't been vacuumed there was so many hairs it looked as if a dog had molted in the room and the chair was disgusting.

We booked at the continental hotel after reading reviews we were weary, we expected the worst surprisingly though it was not near what some reviews suggested. Our room was clean, the bathroom had hot water and was clean no problem at all during our stay - staff is friendly and polite. The breakfast in the morning was sufficient and the... More

We used again this hotel last weekend as we were quite happy with our previous stay few months ago. The hotel is very convenient, we had a different room this time but still clean. We would stay here again.
