Advertised as 150 meters from Paddington Station - but only for birds. Check in at remote location about 700 meters from station then 650 meters to hotel. Lift broken all week and 86 steps. Cracked tiles, rorn and worn furniture, no water or reception in building. Rather tired and verging on shabby. Not 4 stars as advertised. About 2 stars... More

We rented an apartment with the Paddington Apts in February. When we arrived we found that the lift was out of order. My wife and I cannot climb stairs and we related this need to the management. They were very accommodating and upgraded us to a much better apartment. As it was four in our party the apartment was very... More

Some good and bad reviews on here. After we had booked we phoned and asked for a room on a high level and rear facing. We would recommend you do the same, if you don't mind walking up the stairs. Check in was fine, very polite and helpful. The 5 minute walk (yes 5 mins, not the 20 quoted by... More

These apartments are awful. The apartments are a difficult 1/2 hour walk from reception. We were on the top floor, there was no lift and as we are retired, walking up 7 flights of narrow stairs with luggage was not acceptable. The apartment was basic, yet described as fully equipped. No easy chairs with minimum crockery and cutlery. The shower... More

I read some reviews before we went there so I wasn't expecting anything terrific, so it was just as I expected, it was good for a two night stay, we just slept there. The shower was just a tub with a shower head which we had to hold up when we were washing hehe, but that's alright. The hotel where... More

Good for what was needed. Which was somewhere to stay after watching a show. Good location, comfy bed. Only let down was pretty poor drainage in shower which meant showering for longer than 2 minutes meant the tray filled with water very quickly and would overflow. Shoddy finish in some parts of room too.

Very disappointed. At best a 'good' 3* only. Reception at different location, not convenient. Lift not working, no 'out of order' sign posted. We were up 5 flights of stairs! Not really an 'apartment' more a room with kitchen/table/bed and stained futon squeezed in. Stained floor. Too hot, no way to turn down heating. Shower room smelly and tiny. No... More

Not as the pictures suggest. Not comfy or cosy. And definitely doesn't seem like a 4*. Bit like my student bedroom of 30 yrs ago! A bit bleak. No lamps, TV leads dodgy.bathroom tiny. But staff v helpful and genuine. Shifted to another room- no nicer but tv worked. Pain that check in is a bus ride away. It's cheap,... More

Myself and 2 friends stayed in a studio apartment for a night in Paddington. To be honest, when we turned up I was pretty disappointed - I hadn't realised that you actually have to check in a mile down the road, which is really annoying. Essentially, Hyde Park Suites have a number of apartments dotted around the area and the... More

Myself and a group of friends stayed in 2 studio apartments over the last weekend. I had been fretting about the stay due to the negative comments I had read beforehand, but I needn't of worried... The staff I had spoken to in advance were extremely helpful, giving us advice about parking and the location of the reception area. We... More
