Stayed here for 4 nights with friends sharing triple room. Great location, 2 min walk to paddington station. Hotel was clean, beds reasonably comfy and the triple room quite big for london standards. Facilities were very basic, no towels, soap, hairdryer etc. On the plus side the showers were good, plenty of hot water. Breakfast consisted of cornflakes, white toast... More

We stayed with my family in this hotel for few nights and had pleasant stay. Usually we stay at a three star hotel but decided to try this place to save money (why not) - we are pleased with our decision. The receptionist who checked us in was polite and helpful and gave us all the information we needed about... More

A friend and I opted for this budget hotel on our one night stay to London. The location of the hotel is excellent as it is very close to Paddington Station and hence makes it easy to get back and forth to Heathrow and the city. The standard of the rooms are obviously not comparable to 4 or 5 star... More

This place is cheap because it's ill maintained and has a rude, ill-mannered guy at the desk, apparently managing the place. Not only did he refuse to give the room at the price booked for but said there was no availability after I reached there, despite reconfirming my arrival a day before. Glad I didn't stay there as I heard... More

The hotel is in an excellent location close to all amenities. We chose the Continental because of this and of it's great prices. Breakfast is included, the rooms were not luxury just basic but clean that's all we needed. Surely will be back.

We did not experience any problem from checking in to checking out, everything was fine. Our room was at the front of the hotel had a nice view facing the greenery, the staff is... More
