I stayed with my family in this hotel which we booked directly after a friend recommended it. The staff are nice people and helpful, our room was on the third floor, it was clean, good size and warm. There are many nice restaurants nearby, the area is excellent only few minutes walk to oxford street. Sure we will come back.

The location is very good with some nice pubs and restaurants nearby and close to the tube. However there are plenty of other hotels in the area they can't be worse. Facilities are poor and breakfast is basic. The toilet and showers are third world

I write my review at 3 am not being able to sleep. Window doesn't shut and down in basement and all I can smell is faeces. The rooms are dirty old and the skirting boards are all broken. Sleeping with clothes on for fear of catching something. En suite? What a joke. Everything filthy no towels. Literally all it is... More

We had to take a flight from Heathrow so we were looking for a hotel in paddington and found the continental as we were on a tight budget, which is around the corner from Paddington station. The room was clean, the breakfast good and the staff very friendly. We will use this hotel again in the near future.

We booked a double room en suite at the continental hotel in October. The room was quiet at the back, the size was good for a double room, it was clean and we felt safe there. The staff were very helpful with directions. Overall good experience

The staff were friendly, our room was in the basement but did not mind as we are aware budget hotels do have rooms in the basement. It was quite large with a big window, both the room and the bathroom were clean, the breakfast was continental and was plentiful. Although the hotel seemed very busy, at night it was quiet.... More

The room was quiet,had a wash basin, I was sharing the bathroom but was clean at all times, the breakfast is continental and you can... More

I do not expect much from a hotel, however I am sure we can agree there are four basic requirements which must be met by any establishment: 1) You should feel safe I could not sleep at all as when anyone walked passed our room the door made such a loud noise I was constantly woken from the light sleep...
