Great location - less than 5 minutes walk from Paddington Station and Kensington Gardens. Close to 2 underground stations, local pubs and shops. Friendly staff on reception. Room on small side and flat screen tv ridiculously large for size of room! Bathroom on compact side but clean. Few issues - bathroom fan not working and shower hose leaking badly -... More

I stayed at this hotel with my son (13) in October of this year. The website reviews said they rooms were small and they weren't kidding! Our first room was so wee one of the single beds had no view of the TV at all but they were happy to move us. The next room we both had a view... More

After reading some of the reports we were quite worried about what to expect, but thankfully were suprised! On arrival we were told we had been upgraded to a Club room. The room was quite small but big enough for the time spent in it. Yes, the shower and bathroom were really small, but everything was spotlessly clean and new,... More

Booked this as a "Top Secret Hotel" on the LastMinute site. When I'd looked at these before I think I'd managed to work out one or two of the hotels and they looked good, so I thought why not try it this time. It wasn't quite the loaction I wanted but neither was it too inconvenient, so not too bad... More

.We had gone to London on an official tour and had taken a 5 nights stay in Paddington Courts and suites After reading reviews about the small size of the rooms at Paddington we were really nervous about our fate. The first good thing which happened to us was an amazingly early check in ( 8:30 am). The first room... More

I regret that we booked this hotel! After searching for hours for a 4-star hotel, for a romantic trip for two, what a disappointment this was! We missed to read the reviews of this hotel, which is highly recommended for your future trip. This is definitely not a 4 star Hotel ( from our point of views it deserves less... More

We stayed in the Paddington Court Suites, and although the rooms were very small (barely cat-swinging territory) they were very clean and comfortable. The way we saw it was that we were in London, so we wouldn't be spending that much time in the room anyway. The bathroom smelt of sewerage a bit, and we had to keep the bathroom... More

We knew not to expect large rooms in central London but this hotel had the smallest room, bed and en suite i have ever stayed in! The shower was so small that it was difficult to wash in as i kept hitting my elbow of the wall. The toilet was through an arch way which was exactly the same width... More

Booked into the Best Western Shaftsbury Paddington for 4 nights as I was working in London for a total of £255 which is good value for money. The hotel is clean and tidy, the first room we had was victim to some ants, don't know where they came from. But we had been victim to heavy rain. The hotel without... More
