Centrally located BUT the area is dirty with a lot of construction happening around. The hotel has no style, it used cheap metal that is easy to maintain. The room we had was in the basement. To get there, we had to go through the 'back of the house' space. For 100 pounds, this is a reap-off. Be wise, these... More

We stayed here for three days , the staff was really nice and helpful , really good customer service. The room was what we expected small but comfortable and very clean. Plenty of hot water . We really liked the full english breakfast . No lift but the stairs were easily managed. The locations was too good to be true... More

Had a quick stopover in London (after a trip to Lisbon, before we head for Manchester) and I wanted to have a place to stay for a quick shopping trip. Stayed here before in a miniscule single room, so it was quite a pleasant surprise when we (my brother and I) were given a triple room. Much much more space... More

I was somewhat mislead by the hotels website and various reviews I had read before booking a 'double' room for an overnight in London. The room was as large as and felt like a space-age prison cell including the pre-formed cubicle en-suite, reminiscent of cross ferry cabins. The pervading odour meant that I held my breath while using the loo... More

Short walk from the Paddington station, where the Heathrow Express/Connect service is terminated. Near to the tubes to get to the attractions around London. Got a double bedroom on fifth floor, but thankfully lift is available to carry the luggage. However, wifi is only accessible at ground floor but its not a big concern for me. The check in was...

A quirky futuristic looking hotel close to Paddington. Small cubby rooms with metallic plated walls and furniture. Bathroom was a very small pod-like wet room. Felt like something updated in the early 1990s to look like something from the future. Could do with a minor refurb but if you're just looking for somewhere to get your head down on a... More

Stayed 3 nights at the Stylotel. The single room i was in was very small, but had just what was needed for luggages, sleep, sit (alone) and a tiny but well done bathroom. It's very close to the Paddington station, so you can easily find transport for Heathrow or City ariport. The wifi wasn't always working but the front desk... More

We were accommodated at Stylotel at the last minute which was great. The check in procedure was seemless and the front desk manager / concierge was very knowledgable. He was able to recommend numberous tourist options including (1) places to eat (2) places to visit and sightsee (3) transport to use and (4) shows to see. Very very helpful and... More

Just got back from a 10-night stay at the Stylotel and can honestly state, that after 10 previous stays in other London tourist hotels, this was the best. Yes, the rooms are small, and the en-suite bathroom tiny, but being able to hide the suitcases under the beds helped. Some of the space saving items I brought was an over-the-door... More
