Last minute deal, cost me 59 a night in a single room booked via London Nights. Excellent, clean, tidy and in a quiet location. Bathroom was pokey but for the one night easy to live with. I would recommend this as if you are only looking for a comfy bed and clean surroundings you won't get much better for the... More

I booked this via the hotel chain's own website but, beware -The dates kept clicking back and I was watching that, but then did not pay enough attention to the fact that the hotel kept changing back to the one at the top of the list. I wanted Notting Hill hotel, but ended up booking this one! I did not... More

This hotel is in a great spot near Paddington station and while not spectacular, I've stayed in worse. Stayed with my small daughter - at first we were given a room right next to the lift (419 - avoid if you can) which was unbearably noisy and very small - I asked at the desk if we could change and...

We were given a tiny room at the basement of the opposite building of the main hotel. Trying to find our room in the hotel was a challenging task...it was like a maze!! And when you need to carry huge heavy luggages...it aint very pleasant...in the narrow corridor of the hotel. Glad to know the room was newly refurbished...and there... More

Stayed at Paddington Court Rooms for 2 nights recently and have to say I was very pleasantly surprised going by some of the reviews. We were given a club room and I have to say I have never seen such a big bed in my life! Nice 32" plasma on the wall and all round general very good, clean facilities.... More

We stayed in February in 2005 in a "suite". The room was small and located in the basement. As a result there was no view, the room was chilly but managed to have black mould on the walls. There was a tiny shower stall in the bathroom and a light fixture held in place by wads of toilet paper. Our... More

We booked this hotel for a romantic stay in January '09. The reception staff were pleasant and we were given our room key. The room was very small (not much bigger than the double bed) but it was well furnished with quality furnishings. The bathroom was also quite small but, it, too, was fine. The hotel is reasonably well located... More

For internation traveller this is nice place for dinning around & for some shopping. But the hotel is little cozy (standard rooms) & staff service are pretty normal. Food quality is ok & you...
