Rooms are very small. Wall paper peeling off, Bath rooms simply disgusting! I sleep in hotels all over the world every week and I don't complain quickly but this was really terrible. WIll never stay in this hotel again. Accross the street there is a hotel named '27 Paddington': that is MUCH better.

We checked in on the hop. What a great surprise. We had room 104, a great bay windowed room. The hotel was nice and warm. Well situated and appointed. The shower was good and the room facilitites were excellent (1 x double and 1 x single in ours). A good price and the breakfast in a clean well appointed restaurant... More

This hotel has mixed reviews so I hesitated before booking it. The reviews are mostly correct in that the rooms are tiny, the bathroom not much bigger than a shoe box, no water pressure in the shower and the place feeling a little tired in places. However - it is clean, the staff are friendly, it's warm, breakfast perfectly OK,... More

My stay was in 1999, so wifi wasn't an issue. But this was my first trip abroad, and I have great memories of the Brunel. You always fondly remember your first ;) I liked that there wasn't a triple room available so I got one to myself! That was a great experience for me. I didn't miss the minifridge, and... More

This hotel is in a very good location, 10 minute walk from Paddington Stn for rail link to Heathrow, and a brisk 30 minute walk into main shopping streets - Regent St, Oxford St etc. Hotel itself is fine; room was very small but adequate for a short city break. Clean. Lovely towels. Wi-Fi was a bit hit & miss... More

Where do I start. Coming up the lift with more than 2 people and luggage is impossible if the lift works. Once opening the door to your room don't swing it to hard as it will bang into the bed. The bed was two singles kind of bolted together so you had to sleep on the outside edge or you... More

Couldn't fault our stay. Given a three bed ground floor room as no Double rooms available which meant more space at no extra cost. Room was well furnished, clean and very comfortable. Staff were very helpful friendly and efficient. Would definitely recommend.

The Hotel was well Located near Paddington station. Unfortunatly we were allocated a room on the 4th floor with a lift that only goes to 3rd floor... WHY, possibly as it was an after thought to add more rooms to the antique attic space. No room to swing a cat. had to leave the bathroom door open so you could... More
