Very old building, needs a lot of renovation, electricity went off while we were there because of a blown fuse and took ages to fix, stains on walls from heater etc, could do with a lick of paint at least. Breakfast sucks, but that's not really a big deal for me. Slept badly but mostly due to heatwave. They did... More

It has been the nicer place where I have eaten pub food, by that I mean that you don't get confused by its name (don't expect some kind of hight cuisine). The food was alright and the quantities more than generous (that made me specially happy, i am tired of seeing big plates empty). i just missed a bit if... More

Near Paddington station/Underground. Excellent for touring London. Found it great to access the underground to all where we needed to go. Hotel very clean, rooms small but adequate. Hotel staff very helpful. We will definitely use this as our base again!

Stayed here for 3 nights in December and I was shocked at how stunning this hotel was, very glamorous... The rooms are just so chic. It's literally with in walking distance of Oxford street and hyde park. The breakfast is continental but do have sausage and bacon which I wasn't expecting! But everything about this hotel was just spot on...... More

Not knowing what to expect ..but When me and my wife arrived it made sense,, the newer photos are the ones we... More

I stayed at this hotel on 8th December as we wanted to be local to covent garden. They charged us £179 for 1 night without breakfast which I feel was a rip off. They obviously know they can charge this because of location! The look from the outside and the ground floor was ok but the room was tiny, my... More

Booked up to stay here as it looked nice, not the cheapest but was kind of last minute so it was fine. When we got there we were told our room was having building work done (sorry but surely that level of building work would have been in the diary well before I booked up!) was told they had booked...

We arrived on Saturday 13th sept, to be told there was no room. We were allocated a hotel nearby, the pacific, which was terrible. The price did not fit the standard of the hotel. Wish we had stayed in a b&b. No information given to us about anything. Missed breakfast on Sunday at 10am, because finished at 0900, which we... More

I went to stay at Royal Cambridge Hotel in early September based on the recommendation of my friends. The hotel was recently refurbish and the room I stayed was nice and modern . In addition, the hotel is within walking distance to Paddington train and tube station which is convenient for me. I would definitely stay at this hotel again... More

We recently stayed at The Royal Cambridge Hotel. The hotel is dark and stuff and in great need of a revamp. The rooms are very small and not very clean, our bathroom mat had mould all over it and we only had one towel for the two of us. The air conditioning consisted of one small fan. We had a... More
