St David's is a great place to stay in central London. The staff are unbelievably nice and attentive and even offer advice on tourist destinations. I stayed with my GF in a double which had a tiny but very efficient WC with shower. Great Breakfasts are included. The location cant be better (the 23 bus is a sightseers dream) Easy... More

I understand that London is expensive but that was a ridiculous price of £60 for what I can only describe as a glorified cupboard. Open bathroom which takes up most of the room. Toilet practically next to the bed. i bashed my elbows off most the walls. You can hear everyone leaving as they pass the door which is on... More

We stayed here recently and found it good value for money. The room was small but very clean. We were only using the hotel as a base and it was perfectly based for getting into London by bus or tube. The staff were friendly and helpful. The morning breakfast was freshly cooked you can have more if needed. The place... More

we stayed there with 4 friends for 4 nights after christmas. Location was great, it was so close to Paddington metro station and there were many bus choices to reach directly many locations for example Camden town, etc. Also you can reach Hyde park in 8-10min. by walking. Staff and owner were so nice & friendly. Breakfast was better than... More

Wife and I stayed at the St. Davids, Norfolk Square, London in early October 2014. We were there for 3 nights. The hotel is only about a 4 minute walk from Paddington Station which makes it very convenient as the train from Heathrow terminates at Paddington.. The hotel is in a series of old homes which have been connected and... More

I returned for a second stay at St. David's hotel on October 28th, for two nights. I enjoyed my first stay there in 2009, and had an equally enjoyable stay this time. I live in Montreal, and fly out of Heathrow, and other than staying in one of the overpriced, impersonal hotels near the airport, St. David's is in the... More

I travelled with a friend and we booked a twin room for our four night stay. We arrived at the hotel around 10pm, to which they must have overbooked their hotel because we were given a double bedroom with an unpleasant bathroom, overlooking shabby rooftops and (noisy) air vents, and every 5 minutes the whole room would shake due to...

I am very glad I chose this place. I was leery based on some reviews on here, but I emailed Alex and he assured me that I would have a great stay, and I did. The lovely Sophie at reception is a wonderful sight for sore eyes upon arrival. The breakfast is delicious and you can have all you want;... More

We did not last more than 5 minutes and left in a hurry - smelly, pokey, run-down! - Very close to Paddington train station, trains to Oxford leave from there. But there is a number of small hotels in the area and we had no trouble finding something better. Remember - this is London - you pay a premium.

Lasted two hours, then fled at 1130pm. Smelly, pokey, impoverished, very very noisy with gangs of youths drink and drug fuelled outside my window. Quite frightening. Recommended by our surgeons' secretary as being near the hospital for visits. All that immaterial. Do yourself a favour, just don't do it.
