Stayed with my fiance in a double room shared facilities. the room was better than some reviews suggest, the size was good, it was clean with clean bedding. Yes the breakfast is not that of Intercontinental but we didn't pay it is free. We had no problem during our stay and definitely we will book in the future.

I stayed with my friends for 3 nights in this hotel their prices are unbeatable for central London. The location is excellent, our room was clean with comfortable beds, the window was looking the green garden in front of the hotel. The staff is helpful and friendly, the breakfast is simple but adequate. Of course we will return.

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.

I was pleased with the price, but if you have a hotel, you should care about guests opinion. There is so many bad reviews, that I am idiot, that I didnt read it. I took my sister to the London for 5 days and we were just lucky, that we had so much to do, that we just slept in... More

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.
