Very clean and great location. Reception folks are helpful and friendly. Rooms are small but thats typical in London. The ladies that serve you breakfast provided amazing hospitality and service. Their friendly demeanor always made our day!

First off, you can't go wrong with the location. Its literally a block away from Paddington Station. The neighborhood is cute and the hotel looks out on a courtyard. The staff were all really friendly. But I will be honest with you, there are pros and cons to this hotel. If you are looking for luxury, first off you're going... More

Great location close to Paddington station, so if you are coming all the way from Australia like we did, the Heathrow Express to Paddington station is the way to go. The hotel is close to a number of very reasonably priced restaurants in London Street. A laundry service is available not too far away in Star Street. Hyde Park is... More

St. David's Hotel is located very close to Paddington Station and Tube stop, so it is in a perfect location to explore all of London as well as out of town sites. The hotel is well managed, clean and fairly comfortable. There was some construction taking place to upgrades the rooms, but it was not that disruptive. The rooms are... More

Friendly and happy staff who welcome you at every point. The chef is called George and he is a lovely man who has worked there for 34 years. He has a great whistle too as he makes breakfast. Great location right next to paddington station and Hyde park is about 500 metres away. Secure and comfortable premises. A two star... More

On the positive side of St. David's Hotels, the staff is friendly and helpful. This was true both in the lobby (where a deskman even carried one of our bags up four flights of stairs) and in the breakfast area. Their English breakfast is tasty and super-filling. They'll refill your coffee and juice as well unless they get super busy.... More

This was my second visit to St. David's with a group of 24 university students from the states. The accommodations were fine. The breakfast fantastic. WIFI free in lobby. £3 per day in your room. The staff was friendly and always accommodating. This is a small hotel in a great location (near Paddington) with good breakfast. It is not intended... More

My friends and I booked a triple room here for three nights. Make no mistake, the space is tight. With three people and their luggage, it was a challenge to stake out room for belongings, but we managed. After getting used to the confining space, I warmed up to the place. The staff were friendly and courteous. St. David's is... More

Shabby room with a tiny bathroom. Paint chipping off the wood work everywhere you looked. Fortunately we only booked one night. Free Wi-Fi in the lobby ONLY. In your room you have to pay. So it's free if you don't mind sitting in the lobby. We were told there was someone at the front desk 24 hours a day, but... More

This place is a downright bargain for London, so really there's no room to complain here. For this price anywhere else I would rate this poor at best, but London is London. We had a queen bed with an en suite bath. To say the room was tiny would be the understatement of the century. The bathroom felt like one... More
