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.

Our stay at Balmoral was greatly disturbed by the fact that the room had not been cleaned before our arrival. Glasses, bottles and dirty linen is not the best way to start a hotel stay. That being said, the reactions in reception points to this being a one timer, and the family running the place fixed the room in no... More

Just come back from a two night stay in London for some business and pleasure. I have to stay that this is a fab little place to stay in a great location you are so central to everything. We drove up by car but Paddington is literally a 2 minute walk away. The room was small but it was spotlessly... More

We had checked all the reviews of the Balmoral House before we stayed there, so we knew it was going to be a typical small European hotel. It is nothing fancy, but it is clean. We stayed in one of the triple rooms with our granddaughter. The beds were comfortable, the room was small, the bathroom very small. It was... More

The reception of this hotel was located at the other side of the street. Location was good, near the London Tube. Very basic hotel but nice. The staff was pleasant. The only negative thing is breakfast, only possible till 8:30 AM.
