The staff was very friendly and helpful. The free English breakfast was very good. The room was very small. The bathroom was so small I cannot close the door sitting on the toilet and I'm 5'8" 160 lbs. I cannot fit in the shower stall either. No safe box in room. The location was the best. A block from bus... More

I've been to London several times and I've never repeated the hotel choice for my stay. Bottom line, you can't expect for what you pay there, the level of comfort you may get on other destinations. With that being said, what the Falcon Hotel might lack in comfort, services, the absence of lift, even in spotless cleaning, sure makes it... More

A budget hotel. Very comfortable bed. Quiet for London. Very convenient for Paddington station. Very clean. Small room and very small en suite shower. No lift. Breakfast fine but not exciting (basic cereal, tinned fruit etc) . No bar, reception area to lounge in. So a good basic hotel where I slept well, and would use again.

Rude staff and management. Property not worth the money. Lots of better options nearby if you have to stay near Paddington. Would not recommend. Stay somewhere else. Look at the other negative reviews as they are more accurate than the positive reviews.

Falcon hotel at paddington-this was my first day in UK, and this hotel made the day terrible. Toilets are located two floors down from each rooms. Narrow steps and landing. Not enough space to open up your laggage. Not enough space for two people in double bedroom. I could not open closet door because a lamp was located narrow space... More

My friend and I stayed for several nights at the Falcon and were very pleased with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, the cleanliness of the rooms, and the location--it's just two blocks from Paddington Station, which meant ease of travel to and from Heathrow, to and from Oxford and Bath, and within London via the underground. There are... More

There were problems with booking my reservation. I used the link to the hotel website on 05 Oct and submitted a form; an automated email response said I'd get a confirmation shortly. Six days later, I called the facility (11 Oct) since I'd received no answer and the form had required me to include a credit card to hold the... More

I made a last minute booking direct with the hotel very late in the evening, for a family member in need of somewhere to crash last minute. The receptionist was very helpful and allowed me to book the (last!) room and arrive in the morning to pay for my little cousin's stay. She had a very pleasant stay in a... More

Very clean budget hotel within a three minute walk of Paddington Station (direct rail service via Heathrow Express to and from LHR). Check their website carefully so you know what you are getting: many rooms do not have an en suite bathroom, there is no elevator, and the rooms are small. HOWEVER, it is very clean, reception was helpful and... More

The owner and workers are so friendly and helpful. Very delicious breakfast. Clean rooms. The price is so reasonable as it is 1 minute from metro and 5 minutes by bus from Oxford street. But they use to turn off heaters in morning :(.
