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

In London you would not expect luxury at these reasonable prices, and the rooms are not oversized. However, you will be quite pleased with how you are treated. When we ran into a problem with a passport and credit cards, the staff were helpful beyond any reasonable expectation. They helped us contact the U.S. Embassy, and receive and print emails... More

What impressed me most was the staff and hosts. Expect warm greetings from the servers at breakfast and a happy cook who whistles and adds cheer almost every day. The gentlemen at the front desk were always warm and helpful, made me feel welcome and well looked after. I never had to wait to use the shared bathroom, which was... More

The Hotel is 2 blocks from Paddington Rail and Underground station. Desk people remembered us from 2 years ago. Had another wonderful stay. The owner ( George) even cooked our English Breakfast. No elevator or A/C but not needed. We will continue to stay here on our vacation trips to London. Charlie- USA
