My colleague booked 2 rooms through Booking.com but on arrival they did not have a record of my booking. It later transpired the booking was there but an administrative error at their end meant they did not have me as a planned registration for that day. My booking was for a double or twin room, the best they could offer... More

Hotels in London are expensive, and that's just the way it is. i knew what to expect because I had read other reviews and basically they all said the same thing: we wish we got more for our money. This hotel is very close to Paddington station, and was clean, the bedding adequate and the towels and toiletries fine. The... More

i have stayed at Balmoral Hotel for 2 nights in end of October. Price was very good and they had breakfast included. The best thing about this hotel is it's location - few minutes walk from Paddington station (good for Heatrow connection), 5 to 10 minutes walk from Lancaster Gate and Edfware Road stations. Also close to Hyde Park (approx... More

Just came back from a long weekend staying in Balmoral House Hotel. My husband made the reservations without checking the reviews ... so I was a bit leery. We choose twin-bedded rooms -- for us, generally it's easier to move around the room that way. Yes, the rooms are small and so was the ensuite bathroom (the shower is almost... More

The hotel is located in a great location near the Paddington Tube Station ... Unfortunately that's it's only good quality. Let me start off with my introduction to the front staff. The guy working the front desk assured me I only booked for one night. After I showed him my confirmation email he said, "oh okay - looks like you... More

We booked this hotel mostly because of its location close to Paddington Station. Sure enough, getting there was quite easy! We were quite excited for our stay, but that changed when we arrived at reception. The lady checking us in was quite unfriendly from the start, and this got worse when it turned out our booking wasn't what we expected.... More

This hotel is in the Paddington area, close to Bayswater Road and other tourist areas, including excellent shops and restaurants. The Hotel is split into two parts opposite each other in Sussex Gardens. There is no lift. We were told to go across the road and up to the 4th floor for our room. There are 70+ steps. The room...

the hotel is clean. room has all one needs but very small. the biggest problem is the washroom. it's really really small... breakfast is comprehensive but ok. when there's high occupancy one may want to go a bit earlier or there might be a line-up for breakfast

Staff is really nice. Very good traditional English breakfast, but can ask for continental if you wish. Rooms are small but OK and clean. Good location, train and tube stations are 3-4 minutes walk away. Wifi works but not on the upper floors.
