This hotel is in the nice part of Paddington overlooking the garden. The room was spacious and clean, the bathroom was a bit small like in other London hotels but functioned well, continental breakfast is complimentary. My family and I felt safe in the continental hotel and so we will come back.

We stayed in this hotel last week for 3 nights. Before booking we could not make up our minds whether we should book or not after reading the mix reviews. Well after staying for three nights our experience was positive. We can say it is fine, clean, decent budget hotel. Yes, we will return.

Paddington is excellent location. We stayed at the continental hotel for 3 nights in two triple rooms en suite which were good size. The rooms are basic and reflect the prices, they are clean with comfortable beds. In the morning we had breakfast which was included in the price and was fine.

Our room had a lovely view of the greenery in front of the hotel, it was clean, average noise just like in other hotels. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby, excellent position, the breakfast was free. Definitely we will come back.

We stayed here in a double room as the hotel that we booked initially said they didn't have our booking so we looked around and found the continental which was cheaper than other hotels in the area so we saved pounds. It is not luxury hotel just basic budget but it is fine if you are on a budget -... More

The hotel is closed to Paddington train and underground stations. I had a single room en suite which were both clean, the room was quiet. The breakfast which included was fine and served downstairs, the staff were helpful. I would return.

We visited London for few days and booked at the continental hotel as we stayed previously without any problem. We do not agree with K-Low123, during our stay we did not experience any problem with the hot water. The hotel is basic but everything is in working order and it is clean - every time we stay we save money.

There seems to be a lot of positive reviews of this hotel that have suddenly appeared over the past few weeks. Having stayed here recently I can only assume the reviews are fake or the hotel has had a major revamp. Please be very cautious of the positive reviews.
